    It's time to meet the Muppets on The Muppet Show tonight!

    This one's extra hard because the lyrics did not actually air with the program, and because the program's about 55 years old. Try to see if you can get it without using Google:

    Too tough for you all?

    It was the George Burns and Gracie Allen show.

    Here's an easy one:

    "They have pay or play contracts"

    Another easy one

    If you have a problem,
    if no one else can help,
    and if you can find them,
    maybe you can hire

    I admit to Googling, but far as I can find this was a line from a movie, not a TV show theme. And not even a movie that I can recall was ever made into a TV series.

    Might be a good one to start a separate Movie Lines Game, though ...

    Whoops, Sluggo, you answered one from over two months ago, at the bottom of page two of this thread. It was answered in about 15 minutes

    .. has got to be Wonder Woman.

    "Notify my next of kin ..."

    Well, we already got a new one without this one being answered, but I'll give it a shot. I haven't watched it in a long time, but it's hard to forget Rod Serling's presentation:

    "The Twilight Zone"

    You are correct sir! On both points...I did realize my mistake about 30 seconds after I posted...and yes it is Wonder Woman.

    No, this entry was disqualified because it was a dialog line from the movie Good Morning, Viet Nam.

    Twilight Zone was a good guess, though, as Mr. Serling's introduction did have a somewhat similar line, although it varied slightly from year to year. One version was "You're traveling through another dimension -- a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind."

    Kinda surprised that this one is still hanging fire. Here it is again with the line that follows it:

    "Notify my next of kin.
    This wheel shall explode."

    (By the way, that MIGHT be 'Best notify my next of kin', as it was that way in the original Bob Dylan song -- how's that for a non-helpful hint?)

    Actually, it is "Notify my next of kin". The show is Absolutely Fabulous.

    Next up:

    "You hear it calling,
    You can't deny,
    Cause when it calls,
    You know you're gonna fly."​

    Just ran across this old thread from 2008 and thought it would be fun to revive it. You can start over to read from the beginning here.

    Okay, since this thread had been lying fallow for 11 years, I cheated and googled it.

    Adventures of the Black Stallion (of which I have no recollection whatsoever)

    From one of my cable-type-station favorites:

    "All step back, I'm 'bout to dance
    The greenback boogie"
