I recognised very few of these. I was thinking Alan Sugar for you're fired- from the British version and as for Yes we can- that was Bob the Builders catch phrase which is a kids program!! Never mind.

As a non-american, I found this quiz impossible, bar the obvious Mr T, Charlie Sheem, Snoop. I also feel that Alan Sugar should be allowed as acceptable for "you're fired", I may be wrong but i believe the UK version was the original? Also, in the UK, Bob the Builder (a children's tv character) says "yes we can".

The US version of the Apprentice aired its first season in 2004, the UK version premiered in 2005, but otherwise I agree with your comments

I'm American and missed Snoop. Felt dumb for missing it. Got most of the others, though.

I don't know how Flava Flav wasn't a correct answer when it's a common spelling, if not accurate. I also think Jack Nicholson should be acceptable for Here's Johnny based on his use of the phrase in The Shining. Maybe I'm wrong, but those were my first impulses.

But wasn't Nicholson's character merely sarcastically quoting Ed McMahon? I've heard a lot of repeats of the phrase in movies and TV shows, including one referring to a port-a-potty.

Yes, Nicholson was quoting McMahon.

Also, please allow Cassius Clay for Muhammed Ali. And by the way, Snoop Dogg does call himself Snoop Lion nowadays.

A few answers you should accept: Jack Nicholson for "He...ere's Johnny!" Bob The Builder for "Yes We Can" (mainly because Bob said it before Barack) Flava Flav for "Ye...eah boooooyy!" Oddly enough, I thought of all of these before seeing them in the comments. Hhmmmmm...

Well Ed McMahon said "Here's Johnny" before Nicholson did. As a matter of fact, Nicholson's line is an imitation of McMahon, so it is in a sense Nicholson's character recognizing and tipping his cap to McMahon's line.

I would agree that it needs to be specified where it is just the American person who is an acceptable answer, I automatically entered Alan Sugar as that is who does the UK show.

I can't believe I missed Elvis. I kept thinking of Andy Kaufman playing Latka on Taxi.

Paul Revere as a "celebrity"? He has never been on the cover of Rolling Stone or People. Nor has he been interviewed on the red carpet by Joan and Melissa. Seriously, he doesn't really fit in here.

Yeah, using "celebrity" may be a stretch for a couple of these. Maybe something along the lines of "Famous People" would be more fitting.

Using "catchphrase" is also a bit of a stretch in some of these cases, such as 'winning,' 'truthiness' or 'The British are coming' which Paul Revere likely never said.

"Winning" was definitely a Sheen catchphrase.

Yes, Sheen said it. Once. Hardly seems enough to fulfill the definition of an often repeated or signature phrase.

Paul Revere would not have said "the British are coming" considering everyone in the colonies at the time was British. More likely, it would've been, "the Redcoats are coming".
