Honorable Mention

Praised or dissed, applauded or jeered, Shelley has always remained in many people's psyche as the years have gone by. To whatever end, her name has been mentioned in many shows because people do remember who she is and what she had accomplished. Here are some examples. Thanks to lahtiji, asd1336 and KrisMunroeFan for posting them at YouTube.

EMILY: No food, no drink. Do you at least have plates?
RORY: Yes, we have plates.
EMILY: There are women in bikinis on them.
RORY: The original Charlie's Angels. It took us years to get a complete set. You can find the Kate Jackson's and the Shelley Hack's pretty easily, even the Cheryl Ladd's. But the Farrah Fawcett's and the Jaclyn Smith's are a little harder to come by, but still accessible. The real trick however is to find the Tanya Roberts. We have three.
EMILY: You have three Tanya Roberts?
RORY: Yup.
EMILY: And I was worried, silly me.
