    I know Arivne already listed it in his imdb search results, but I just thought I'd mention that "I've still got it" was Ralph Malph's Catch Phrase on Happy Days.

    Another pro wrestling example: Fans will often show their appreciation for older veteran wrestlers that can still perform well in the ring by chanting "You still got it." Sting, being a big fan favorite from the old NWA and WCW days, gets this all the time in TNA.
