- Catch phrase
A catch phrase (or "catchphrase") is a phrase or expression recognized by its repeated utterance. Such
memetic phrases often originate in popular culture and in the arts, and typically spread through a variety of mass media(such as literatureand publishing, motion pictures, televisionand radio), as well as word of mouth. Some catch phrases become the de facto" trademark" of the person or character with whom they originated, and can be instrumental in the typecasting (beneficially or otherwise) of that actor. This is especially the case with comedyactors.
