"Eww, David!" Has any 2-word line from a TV show been more quotable and useful?

I have been an English professor for 10+ years, which involves teaching through a feminist lens. My terminal degree, an MFA in Creative Nonfiction, focused on feminist narratives. In addition, my undergraduate degree in English with a minor in History prepared me for a career as a feminist educator. At the collegiate level, I teach education majors how to address diversity issues in their classroom in a class called Teaching Diversity Through Young Adult Literature. My essays on feminism and pop culture have been published by Jezebel, Everyday Feminism, Role Reboot, and Salon. I have also been teaching feminism courses on Outschool since early 2020.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Please note that because of the name of the show, the class does use euphemisms for profanity, and students will be able to quote the show. Conversational profanity will be discouraged, as we follow Outschool's expectations and guidelines for student behavior. The content of the class will never exceed the content of the show, but we may discuss topics like sexuality and drug use.
