I am veerring off the garden path from my "usual" topic of gardening to share the following:
Once upon a time, in the late 1980s, there was a movie called "Norma Rae," which starred Sally Field. Ultimately, SF received an Oscar for her performance in the film, and in her Academy Award speech, she proclaimed, "You like me! You like me!"
SF's speech became the "fuel" for many sitcoms including "Kate and Allie," where yours truly portrayed a sweat shop worker in an episode that made fun of SF's Norma Rae and subsequent, "You like me" reference.
