Game shows have their share of these:

"Door number 1, door number 2, or door number 3" -- Monty Hall, Let's Make a Deal

"Is that your final answer?" -- Regis Philbin, Who Wants to be a Millionaire (early days)

"This is Bob Barker saying, have your pets spayed or neutered."  -- The Price is Right


And on the news:

"And that's the way it is.  (insert date here) I'm Walter Cronkite, this is CBS News, good night."

True.  It's also worth noting that NBC offered Democratic candidate Hubert Humphrey to appear (not necessarily on the same episode as Nixon) on Laugh In but he turned it down.  It was believed that Humphrey thought it was beneath him to appear on that show.

I'm guessing Nixon learned his lesson about the power of television after the 1960 election.

Keeping with the Star Trek theme for a moment:

"Live Long and Prosper"

"My mind to your mind. Your thoughts to my thoughts."

"Make it So"

"Please state the nature of the medical emergency"

More from the original Star Trek:

"The best diplomat I know is a fully activated phaser bank!" (Scotty)

(From "The Doomsday Machine":

SPOCK: Appropriate, Captain. However, I can't help wondering if there are any more of those weapons wandering around the universe.
 KIRK: Well, I certainly hope not. I found one quite sufficient.

Then we have another computer on the fritz that will be "logically" destroyed but not before wiping out the population of a planet and raising Cain on the Enterprise:

NOMAD: You are the creator, the Kirk. The sterilisation procedure against your ship was unnecessary.
 KIRK: What sterilisation procedure?
 NOMAD: You are the Kirk, the creator. You programmed my function.
 MCCOY: Well, I'm not the Kirk. Tell me what your function is.
 NOMAD: This is one of your units, creator?
 KIRK: Yes, he is.
 NOMAD: It functions irrationally.
 KIRK: Sometimes, but tell him your function nevertheless.
 NOMAD: My function is to probe for biological infestations, to destroy that which is not perfect. I am Nomad.

This series is so loaded with golden dialogue!
