Fred Savage

Paul has hatched a brilliant scheme, one that I know Pinger Matt will be up for. As many times as you can today, use Fred Savage’s name in place of a phrase related to one of his movies. An example:

Paul: It worked for me when it didn’t for you, and vice versa.
Paul: Also instead of saying “vice versa” we should just say “Fred Savage”, star of Vice Versa.
Ryan: Good call. Very Fred Savage (“Big”) of you.
Paul: I’m a Fred Savage (“The Wizard”) at language.
Paul: Especially while I’m Fred Savaging (Working)

Ryan, sorry to be such a Fred Savage (“Little Monster[s]”) about correcting you lately, but Fred Savage wasn’t in “Big.”

I believe you may be thinking of David Moscow. If I didn’t tell you, I think Fred Savage (“No One Would Tell”).

You hate me now, don’t you?

Damn, Maria, you’re schooling me this week.

I was thinking of Paul’s aforementioned “Vice Versa.” I’m definitely not feeling like Fred Savage (“The Boy Who Could Fly” – yes, I had to look that up) today.

Sometimes you and Paul are like twins raised in a little room with no human contact. You have developed your own secret language extracted from sitcom scenes and bad movies. No doubt you would call the language “Fred Savage”.

Ryan screwed that up, Tom Hanks time.

Brilliant!! By the way, I was talking with a few people a week ago or so, and they were under the impression that Fred Savage had just died. I guess this was like the Zack Morris rumor that went around in 1993. One of the people had even gone online to confirm the news, but found it to be a recent hoax. I thought that was quite a random hoax for this day and age.

Also, I was just looking for Fred Savage on Youtube last night. Well, technically, I was looking for episodes of Working, which I didn’t find. However, there are plenty of Power-Glove clips from The Wizard.

“Ryan screwed that up, Tom Hanks time.”

This still cracks me up.
