For me it's definately gotta be the theme to Perfect Strangers. I get chills each time I hear it!
Standing tall on the wings of my dreams
Rise and fall from the wings of my dreams
The rain and thunder
The wind and hail's bound to find some other days
It's my life, my dream
Nothing's gonna stop me now!
Yes...that was the show. Bonus points...know the actual name of the song?
You didn't think Turkeys could fly though....did you?
As God as my witness...
One of the greatest lines from one of the best TV episodes of any kind, ever.
And yes, I had GM's like Mr. Carlson and every station had a salesman like Herb Tarlek and I've known several newscasters similar to Les Nessman (who led with Nixon's resignation over the hog futures that one time - he thought it was a good move).
Jocks like Johnny or Venus? Quite a few.
Unfortunately, darn few receptionists like Loni Sanders.
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
