When they don't have a catchphrase of their own, some characters happen to inspire them.

Indeed, a "phrase catcher" is someone whose sole presence is enough to inspire the same (or almost the same) verbal reaction among a various group of people. It works quite the same as a catchphrase except that the character doesn't say it but has it said about him... or her... or them.

Which of these movie/TV phrase catchers is the most memorable?

To be included, the 'catchphrase' must come from different characters, at least two, throughout the movie or the TV series (so no "Shut the **** up, Donny") and shouldn't introduce or come after another catchphrase from the protagonist (so no "Hi, Dr. Nick!")

I'll do more than considering it, and that's exactly what the list needs, more TV options. I had a great one in mind and then it was like erased from memory, it's been a mental torture for twenty minutes now :)
