The media-savvy among you will notice that the subtitle of today’s post is taken from Jerry Maguire’s job-ending manifesto in that eponymous film.
But don’t worry: I’m not free-fallin’. 😉
What I am interested in are the catchphrases that have entered our cultural lexicon; such as:
“Show me the money!” I think Cuba Gooding, jr. won his Academy Award based solely upon his delivery of this line. (Plus there some talk of air-drying and shoplifting as well).
“You had me at hello.” Who can forget Renee Zellweger (as Dorothy Boyd-Maguire) delivering this line. Aww! (Shoot me now).
Anyway, this post isn’t about Jerry Maguire, but about those things that have–because I’m a parent–entered my cultural lexicon.
