Captain Wallace Burton Binghamton, "Old Leadbottom", has to be one of the greatest foils in TV History. And it was through his exasperation with Commander McHale and his "pirates" that we learned that Binghamton was a serlinguist - that is, he broke the fourth wall to address the audience in the Trueniverse.
Among the things he would often say across the dimensional vortex:
- "I could just scream!"
- "Why me? Why is it always me?"
- "Somebody up there hates me!"
