    This thread has me cracking up! My favorite Buttonism: "There's no knit-picking on that" after he points out a flaw that the naked eye wouldn't have found....

    Johnny skates like "liquid gold." I think that was said at 2004 Nationals.

    Do you remember the Push Dick's Button segments of Olympic Ice

    They carried it over to 2007 Worlds
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q5q7zZEBeHw

    Tanith & Ben ask about getting rid of the cd's

    Dick: I'm sorry to see them go!

    Jeff Buttle: Who is your favorite Canadian men's skater. You're my favorite commentator.

    And Dick skating a figure:

    yeah Push Dick's Button just sounded dirty - and the non skating commentator had way too good a time with it.

    I remember him using the term MoJo - and you could tell he wasn't sure what the heck it was... Terry Gannon fed it to him, and then laughed after Dick used it.

    What? We have gotten this far and no one has mentioned "rusty hoot"? ;-)

    I still have "Olympic Ice" on a DVD somewhere. My favorite parts were when Dick kissed the female commentator (forgot her name - a tennis or basketball player?) and one segment where he started laughing so hard he couldn't stop.

    That was an exhibition. I guess the skaters weren't up to a competition, especially Michelle who did "A Song for You" with no jumps.

    That was at 2003 Worlds, during the highlights of Michelle's long program. I kept waiting for it on the video, which had many other clips from that program.

    I loved the commentary with Dick, Peggy & Terry Gannon. We were just watching something the other night & they played the same intro music. I got excited and felt like we were about to watch skating, its amazing the emotions/memories music brings out

    yes Mary Carillo was the commentator. I loved Olympic Ice, its cracklin good tv

    Rusty hoot is my favorite I believe, but the Harding spin is hilarious. Dick always had a great comment about just about everyone

    I really really miss Dick's commentary. I know some people who hated his commentaries for being "negative" but I'm really really not at all enamored with Scott (Hamilton) b/c he sounds constipated when he gets too excited.

    This is the funniest one probably:

    Also, that was Miki's best choreographed LP ever if you watch the whole thing.

    For me this was the most memorable! Lu Meijia SP from the '96 worlds. Fast forward to her final element, the layback spin. http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=dd34b-Eh7Kk

    Loved Olympic Ice, "Push Dick's Button," etc.

    Other Buttonisms - "first rate," "best in the business," "looking spiffy"

    I loved when Uncle Dickie asked Irina Slutskaya if he could pinch her rosy cheeks!
