Everything I Ever Needed to Learn, I Learned by Watching TV

April 25, 2006 by  

The Toronto Star put together a list of 97 “nuggets of wisdom” garnered through years of watching TV.

From geo-politics to physics, through romance and relationship advice, to grand philosophical ideas and simple, helpful, practical hints, it’s all there when you turn on your television.

Make sure you head over to The Toronto Star for the full list…but here are some of my favorites.

“Don’t mistake coincidence for fate.”
– Mr. Eko, Lost

“You just have to give guys a chance. Sometimes you meet a guy and think he’s a pig, but then later on you realize he actually has a really good body.”
– Amy Wong, Futurama

“F.Y.I., if cuddling is the best part, he isn’t doing it right.”
– Logan, Veronica Mars

“There are no holidays in the fight against evil.”
– Maxwell Smart, Get Smart

“A paperclip can be a wondrous thing. More times than I can remember, one of these has gotten me out of a tight spot.”
– MacGyver, MacGyver

“Never do tequila shooters within a country mile of a marriage chapel.”
– Al, Married with Children

“It’s all fun and games until one of you gets my foot up your ass.”
– Veronica, Veronica Mars

“Normal is the halfway point between what you want and what you can get.”
– Samantha, Sex and the City

“When guys are persistent, it’s romantic, they make movies about that. If it’s a woman, then they cast Glenn Close.”
– Ally, Ally McBeal

“If more of our so-called leaders would walk the same streets as the people who voted them in, live in the same buildings, eat the same food instead of hiding behind glass and steel and bodyguards, maybe we’d get better leadership and a little more concern for the future.”
– John Sheridan, Babylon 5
