I noticed that Futurama has never done the old "Give Me a Boost" cliche.  It's when someone wants to climb something and doesn't have a ladder, so they ask someone to 'give them a boost'.  That never happened on Futurama.

Seriously? SERIOUSLY?

First off, I've never heard 'Give me a Boost' being a Cliche... Second, is it really that important?!  hmpf

Is it just me or does it seem like Danny's shooting for a modship?

 Wouldn't it be more of a colloquialism than a cliché?

Don't hate me, Trinity.  I'm just the messenger.

Actually, more of a stock phrase than a colloquialism. Still, it doesn't have enough usage to deserve another trope outside of human ladder.
