* CoolTeacher: Sagan tried to be this to the world, and for the most part he succeeded. More specifically, many of his own students are now celebrity scientists in their own right. (Creator/NeilDeGrasseTyson might be the best example.)

In mainstream, he's somewhat of a star on Youtube; he's the centerpiece of the SymphonyOfScience videos, which auto-tunes Sagan's ''Cosmos'' along with other science programs to create [[strike:un]]expectedly awesome music videos, which total at about 8 million views. His ''[[TearJerker Pale]] [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Blue]] [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming Dot]]'' speech is also a big hit, the two most watched versions having 1.7 Million views combined. His work, although the bulk of it was done 30+ years ago, still stands tall today within science, an incredible accomplishment.

* PatrickStewartSpeech: Several times, and eloquently delivered. May have even been the inspiration for the {{Trope Namer}}'s speeches in ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'', which aired 7 years after ''Cosmos''.

* BeamMeUpScotty: "''B''illions and ''b''illions!"
** There's an awesome instance of Sagan {{Lampshading}} this trope and, in fact, [[{{SubvertedTrope}} subverting]] it in the opening pages of his collection of essays titled ''Billions and Billions'':
--> I never said it. Honest. ... I said "billion" many times on the ''Series/{{Cosmos|APersonalVoyage}}'' television series, which was seen by a great many people. But I never said "billions and billions". [A page later.] For a while, out of childish pique, I wouldn't utter or write the phrase, even when asked to. But I've gotten over that. So, for the record, here goes: "Billions and billions."
** Sagan claimed he always pronounced "billions" with a strong, plosive B on the front so as to emphasize the fact that he wasn't just talking about mere millions. He also got rather annoyed when he did this at public speaking events and heard giggles from the audience.
* His possibly unique pronunciation of the word "cosmos" provoked lots of mirth in Great Britain, especially after impressionists and [[TheBurkissWay parodists]] got hold of it. For many people in Britain, ''Cosmos'' was their first introduction to the non-double-entendre pronunciation of the word "Uranus" - the dominant local pronunciation had always been "yoor-anus" - and the fact Sagan appeared to be conscientiously avoiding the "your arse" joke only served to lampshade it more. Kids in school playgrounds soon caught on to the weird alternative pronunciation and made a joke of it.

"''B''illions and ''b''illions!"

''b''illions!" is one of Sagan's most oft-quoted terms, but he never actually said it that way. Sagan claimed he always pronounced "billions" with a strong, plosive B on the front so as to emphasize the fact that he wasn't just talking about mere millions. He also got rather annoyed when he did this at public speaking events and heard giggles from the audience.
