Frank Barone: I can see a house!

Peter Boyle and Doris Roberts in the fondly remembered sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond. Though never considered edgy or trendy, the Long Island-set show was hugely popular and won 15 Primetime Emmy Awards from 69 nominations. Though the show finshed 13 years ago, it is still regularly shown. You can find more of Frank’s acerbic wit here

And some of my favourite scenes were when the otherwise pompous Marie was brought down to earth by the only person willing to stand up to her, her husband Frank. And if you can’t get enough from Frank, there’s also a previous post here.

Marie: I don’t know what’s happened to that store. They used to give you free samples all the time. They even used to help carry your bags to the car.
Frank: Now I have to carry you to the car myself.

Doris Roberts and Peter Boyle in one of sitcom’s most memorable marriages, in the family themed comedy Everybody Loves Raymond (1996 – 2005). Four of the show’s five main stars won at least one acting Emmy, with the only omission being Peter Boyle who was unsuccessful with seven nominations.

Ray and Debra Barone

Ray: You used to do this before we were married. You’d make me wait in the apartment while you were getting ready, and I had to sit there and look at your books.
Debra: You used to think I was worth waiting for
Ray: You were worth waiting for. But after 15 years you should be here by now!

The Acrostic Name Game

Sort of inspired by the very funky film fan Drama Llama and her Alphabetical Movie Meme, I wanted to create something that reflected my website a bit and could be just as easily adapted by others. I came up with an acrostic of my site name linking it with an explanation of my favourite TV show with that letter.
