    I have a few.

    One is, "O-oh!" when people say things that 'shock' me. Another is, "What's that now?" when people tell me something that frankly I don't need to hear (usually over shares about boyfriends). I suppose another similar phrase is "I beg your PARDON?"

    Sometimes I refer to myself by my last name, as in, "Drapper does NOT approve!"

    Another linguistic stylistic flair that I use is always Full-Naming people. Ben is "Benjamin", Matt is "Matthew!" and if I know their middle/last names, I often get those involved as well.

    I tend to call people by their first and last name as well, because a lot of my friends have very short names like Dave, Greg, or Rich, so adding their last names adds the "stylistic flair" that Beau mentioned.

    I also like using the word "really" to indicate disgust, as in "You went to dinner without me! Really!"

    When someone is like "I just got stiffed" or "I tripped while reading", I say "Rut row" or "FAIL". And I don't swear, and I refrain from slang. I say "cheese" randomly, too. Ahaha...

    I have a few:
    -"Wait, what?"
    -"Cheese and crackers!" (in exasperation)
    -"Kiss, pookie." (when I see an attractive guy or gal ;) on TV)
    - several that can't be said here (yeah, I'm a potty mouth. :o)

    My writing catchphrase is "It was a dark and stormy night" and any variation I can get away with.

    2. "Come at me chica/muchacha"

    3. "SCIENCE!" (like in the song She Blinded Me With Science by Thomas Dolby"

    If I'm feeling antsy, I've been known to chant, "I can't. I can't. I can't sit still!"

    Okay, real answer:

    I often tend to say very Kermit-like "Oh good"

    Aside from that and other odd Muppet quotes, a lot of my catchphrases tend to be fave lines from my fave obscure songs:

    "Prima amore - WOW!" (Eurythmics, Wide Eyed Girl)
    "Swelligant" (Debbie Harry/Iggy Pop, Well Did Ya Evah?)
    ...and whenever i hear a Shakespears Sister song pop up somewhere unexpected, i always shout/sing out "IT'S SHAKESPEARS SISTER - YEAH-HAH!" the same way Joniece Jamison adlibs during the fade of Dirty Mind

    ...and i'll sometimes refer to a group of plastic trendy girls as "a pack of blonds" (courtesy Julie Brown)

    I'll sometimes greet someone (especially if i know they're a Twin Peaks fan) with "On top of the morning to you"

    and i never swear in standard four letter words (too much a gentleman) so i instead use Farscape curses or "Oh, Ju-dy Ten-U-da!" (one day i just randomly thought how great sounding a swear phrase that sounded like and it since stuck)

    ...again from my Obsessed Muppet Freak side, when something confuses me, i tend to mutter "Chicken soup? What is this? I don't get it!"

    I still love "Firefly"s language: "Shiny." One of these days I'll learn all that Chinese cussing, too...

    One left over from the '80s, to express disbelief, confusion, or general stupidity: "Geh gabba du probba, offasuh?"

    And the one I probably overuse the most: "...Yeeeeah." :rolleyes:

    Although lately I've adopted a bit of Snookie Blyer-speak for fun: "Oh-KAY!" and then quickly move on to some other topic. Something about his snarkiness amuses me no end.
