Are you erasing my TiVo? House! Not the season finale!

So I'm watching an episode of "Modern Marvels" on the History channel that I TiVo'ed, frankly, because the most recent TiVo Newsletter that came to my inbox stating: "Speaking of love and devotion, the History Channel's "Modern Marvels: 90s Tech" will be covering technologies we just can't live without on Thursday, February 7th. You probably won't have to PAUSE long to realize something you intimately know made the cut."

Being the sheep that I am (or perhaps, the savvy connoisseur), I TiVo'ed the show that would feature my beloved TiVo.

And that's not all. This episode also featured and, oh man...they have a RIDICULOUSLY awesome system that entirely boggles the mind. Seriously, it's crazy the way their automated series of conveyer belts and bins works. I'm shocked that I've never gotten the wrong order. Google was also cool to see...from their humble beginnings to the search engine that rivals all others. (There was some other stuff, but those were the three with which I am intimately acquainted and couldn't go more than a week without using.)

Anyway, the purpose of this post (other than to say that I'm geeking out over the Modern Marvels of the 90s) is the "fun fact" that, "The most rewound TiVo moment in history was Janet Jackson's 'wardrobe malfunction' during the Super Bowl halftime show in 2004."



Also hilarious is the ability to search IMDb quotes for the use of the word "TiVo."

Some of my favorite results:

Dr. Leonard Green: What's new with you?
Rachel: Um... I got TiVo!
Dr. Leonard Green: What's TiVo?
Phoebe: It's slang for pregnant.

"House, M.D."
Dr. Gregory House: [turns on Wilson's TiVo] What is "El Fuego Del Amor" and why do you need 10 of them?
Dr. James Wilson: It's a... it's a telenovela. I'm learning Spanish.
Dr. Gregory House: Well, say adios.
Dr. James Wilson: Are you erasing my TiVo? House! Not the season finale!

"How I Met Your Mother"
Ted Mosby: Almighty TiVo, we thank you for all the gifts you have given us. The power to freeze live TV to go take a leak is nothing short of godlike. Let's not forget fast forwarding through commercials. It seems greedy to ask anything more from you, oh Magic Box. But if you malfunction and miss the Superbowl, we will destroy you in the alley with baseball bats. Amen.

"King of Queens"
Spence Olchin: Oh my God! My TiVo thinks I'm gay!
