1->''"Good night, and good luck."''²-->-- '''Edward R. Murrow''', legendary Creator/{{CBS}} news anchor²²Closing out an episode or segment by way of something repeated by the host of a show or a character.²²This is very common in {{News Broadcast}}s, to help set the reporters and anchors apart from the crowd.²²It can often overlap with ThatsAllFolks (if it's the outright end of the show) or TheStinger.²²A SubTrope of CatchPhrase.²²A SisterTrope to OnTheNextEpisodeOfCatchPhrase, EndingTheme.²²Compare EveryEpisodeEnding, SoOnceAgainTheDayIsSaved.²²----²!!Examples:²%%²%%Examples are alphabetized for better sorting.²%%²²[[foldercontrol]]²²[[folder:Advertising]]²* Tony Cavolo usually ended commercials for his pizza restaurant chain Peter Piper Pizza by encouraging viewers to "Come on over, to Peter Piper Pizza!"²* Local El Paso, Texas business Popular Mattress: "Thank you very much, y muchas gracias."²* "[[Advertising/TrixRabbit Silly rabbit!

Other variations of the latter also exist.²** In the case of movies advertised on Japanese television, if the movie is now showing in theaters, The phrase "Dai hitto goen chu" (A great hit right now) shows up at the end of the commercial for the currently showing movie.²* Radio ads for Motel 6 end with spokesman Tom Bodett saying, "we'll leave the light on for ya."[[note]]In older ads, this was rendered as "I'm Tom Bodett for Motel 6, and we'll leave the light on for ya."[[/note]]²* Indianapolis-based [[ Don's Guns and Galleries]] had a series of TV spots for years demonstrating his wares, lessons, practice ranges and special deals, and concluding with "I don't want to make any money, folks -- I just ''looove'' [[GunNut to sell guns]].

He does eventually come up with his own: "And that's the way the cookie crumbles."²* ''Film/TheTrumanShow'' offers a variation in that after finding out that his whole life is a lie and reaching the edge of his world (as far as the set goes) and confronting the director about how his life has been a lie he uses his usual catchphrase to sign off.²-->{{Beat}} "...In case I don't see ya, good morning, good afternoon, good evening and good night"²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Literature]]²* In Richard Powell's ''Don Quixote, U.S.A.''

(Or "''am'' smarter than a fifth grader" if they managed to win the top prize.)

At the end of part two of the show's two three part episodes, it becomes "Tune in next week!", etc.[[/note]]²* ''Series/BearInTheBigBlueHouse'' ends with a whole ritual. First, Bear asks Luna (the moon) if she would like to hear him sing the Goodbye Song with him before she goes. She replies something along the lines of "I would love to", then both of them sing this song: "''Hey, this was really fun, we hoped you liked it too.

So good night, New York, and may the road ahead be lit with dreams and tomorrows... which are lit with dreams... also... Stand tall, New York. Trustworthy. Recycling...

The next Monster Garage just...around...the bend!"²** The SpinOff ''Monster House'' (no, not the animated movie]]) would end with the narrator saying "Until next time, when who knows? The monster may be coming to your house." (This is less scary than it sounds.)²* The early Creator/DisneyChannel series ''Mousercise''[[note]]One of the first shows to ever air when the channel debuted as a commercial free premium channel back in 1983.

And the Handyman Corner concluded with the reminder that "if the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy." Though as time went on he frequently followed up with "Now if you'll excuse me..." and a quip about what he intends to do with his latest creation, just before it usually [[GoneHorriblyWrong goes horribly wrong]] or [[GoneHorriblyRight horribly right]].²* Red Skelton: "Good night, and may God bless."²* ''Series/RobotWars'' would end with Craig Charles reciting a four-line poem about the episode's events that always ended "...on ''Robot Wars''", after which Charles would salute the camera and say "Bye".

Murrow ended his CBS News broadcasts with "Good night, and good luck" (hence the title of the 2005 [[Film/GoodNightAndGoodLuck biopic]] starring Creator/DavidStrathairn and Creator/GeorgeClooney).²** Creator/KeithOlbermann paid homage by using the phrase on ''Countdown'', particularly after his Special Comments. When he closed on a lighthearted note, he wadded up a piece of paper and [[CameraAbuse hurled it at the camera, "smashing" it]]. Keith still does this on his 2014 ESPN show.²* Over on NBC, Earl Godwin closed off his news broadcast with "God bless you, one and all."²* On public television's ''Nightly Business Report'', co-anchor Paul Kangas always signed off each broadcast he co-anchored with "I'm Paul Kangas in Miami wishing all of ''you'' the best of good buys!", a pun on good-byes, during which Kangas would also give off a trademark salute.²* On September 1, 1986, Dan Rather started using the sign-off "Courage" on the Creator/{{CBS}} Evening News. After negative public reaction and the pleas of his staff, he stopped using it on September 8. In defiance at having been basically forced to resign from the show in the aftermath of Rathergate, he reused it for his final broadcast.²** To be specific: On September 8, 2004, CBS' ''60 Minutes'' began airing a series of reports on George W. Bush's National Guard service record. They were based on some memos supposedly in the files of Lt. Col. Jerry B. Killian, and provided by Texas Army National Guard [=LtCol=] Bill Burkett to 60 Minutes producer Mary Mapes. The memos, purporting to date from 1973, portrayed Bush as insubordinate and cowardly while in the Guard. Insufficient research and confirmation had been done ahead of time, and the memos were soon proved to be forgeries. Rather defended the memos on the air, believing the content was accurate even if the memos were faked. Four people lost their jobs at CBS, and Rather resigned. Rather had had little to do with the acceptance of the memos and the ''60 Minutes'' broadcast, which is more like Mapesgate.²* Lloyd Robertson of Creator/{{CTV}} ended broadcasts with "And that's the kind of day it's been," also followed by the date.²* Louis Rukeyser would close every episode of ''Wall $treet Week'' with a gentle and warm wink at the camera before wishing the viewers a good night. ²* Lowell Thomas always said, "And so long, until tomorrow!"²* [[ Walter Winchell always began]], "Good evening, Mr. and Mrs. North and South America and all the ships at sea! Let's go to press!" and ended with "And so, with lotions of love [[note]]His sponsor was Jergens, which still makes a full line of creams and moisturizers.[[/note]] this is your New York correspondent, Walter Winchell, who knows that all the lights on Broadway are never as bright as the candle in the window when you come home!" When he was in Florida, he would say "Miami Beach" instead of New York.²* Most broadcasts of the Philippine evening newscast ''TV Patrol'' ends with one of the anchors (Mostly Ted Failon or Noli De Castro) saying "Maraming Salamat at Magandang gabi, Bayan!" [[note]] Thank you and Good night, Nation! [[/note]] In recent times, this is after the last talks between the anchors related to the last report of that episode.²* During UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, news broadcasts kind of suspended the greetings/signoff thing as the news roundup came into being and reporters in key hotspots just gave matter-of-fact accounts of what they saw and heard. CBS' Roger Mudd has more about this in his book ''The Place To Be''.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Podcasts]]²* "This has been ''Podcast/MyBrotherMyBrotherAndMe''. Kiss your dad square on the lips."²* Several Creator/HeyJakeAndJosh shows have these.²** "This has been the ''Podcast/CoolKidsTable'', and you can sit with us."²** Both ''Podcast/PokemonWorldTourUnited'' and ''Pokemon World Tour'' end with "Smell ya later!"²** ''The Morphin' Grid'' ends with "May the Power protect you!"²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Pro Wrestling]]²Some pro wrestlers do this at the end of their promos. Examples:²* Wrestling/HulkHogan: Whatcha gonna do when Hulkamania runs wild on YOU? (among ''many'' variations)²* Wrestling/RandySavage: [[BigYes OH YEAH!]] (Dig it!)²* "If you SMELL....what Wrestling/TheRock is cookin'!²* "...and that's the bottom line, 'cause [[Wrestling/SteveAustin Stone Cold]] said so!"²* Wrestling/TitoSantana: &iexcl;ARRIBA![[note]]He sometimes does this after speaking a little Spanish.[[/note]]²** Strike Force! (with Wrestling/RickMartel)²** &iexcl;Ol&eacute;! (as "El Matador")²* "Superfly" Wrestling/JimmySnuka: HOO! HOO! (Not always, though.)²* Rowdy Wrestling/RoddyPiper did this when he was hosting his "Piper's Pit" segment in the 1980s:²-->"Just when they think they've got all the answers, I change the questions!"²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Radio]]²* ''Radio/TheBurnsAndAllenShow''. (Her saying, "Good night, Gracie" is a BeamMeUpScotty.)²-->'''Gracie:''' [tells some bizaare non-sequitur story]\²'''George:''' Say good night, Gracie.\²'''Gracie:''' Good night.²* ''Inner Sanctum Mysteries'' had a chilling one. After a well-acted story loaded with NightmareFuel, the pleasant voice of your host, Raymond, would intone:²--> "Good night. Pleasant dreams, hmm?"²--> [SFX: [[DoorClosesEnding CREAKING MAUSOLEUM DOOR SLOWLY CLOSING]]] ²** The same ending was later used by the ''Radio/CBSRadioMysteryTheater''.²* ''Radio/QuietPlease'': "And so, until next week at this same time, I am quietly yours, Ernest Chappell."²* ''Creator/DrDemento'' radio show (a long-running, syndicated radio show featuring comedy and novelty songs): "Don't forget to stay demented!"²* Years ago, on WWDC in the Washington Metro area, morning shock jock Doug "The Greaseman" Tracht used to sign off with the phrase, "As they say back in old Mexico City... AMF!" (an acronym meaning "Adios, motherfucker").²* ''The Jimmy Durante Show'': "Good night, Mrs. Calabash, wherever you are."²* ''Radio/FibberMcGeeAndMolly'' always ended with Molly's cheerful "Goodnight, all."²* ''Radio/CarTalk'':² -->'''Tom''': Remember, don't drive like my brother.²-->'''Ray''': And don't drive like ''my'' brother.²* ''Radio/ThisAmericanLife'' always ends with a quote from some part of that week's show, taken out of context and humorously attributed to creator Torey Malatia. The only time they didn't do this was when they reported on [[ Mike Daisey's faked anecdotes]] in [[ his story about Chinese Foxconn workers]].[[note]]Daisey did go to China, and the facts he relates about Foxconn workers are true. However, his ''own'' story, about what ''he'' did there, what he saw and what was said to him, was almost totally fabricated.[[/note]]²-->'''Ira.''' WBEZ management oversight for our program by our boss, Mr. Torey Malatia. And I think this is a week I am just not in the mood for an extra quote here from Torey.²* ''Radio/ImSorryIHaventAClue'' has a Signing Off MadLibsCatchPhrase which goes something like "And so as the <noun> of <[[MeaninglessMeaningfulWords meaniningless meaningful word]]> <adjectives> the <noun> of <meaningless meaningful word> and <either the same pattern again or some sort of pun on the first clause>, I notice it's the end of the show. So from the teams, myself, and the good people of <town>, goodbye." For example:²-->'''Humph''': And so as the loose-bowelled pigeon of Time swoops low over the unsuspecting tourist of Destiny, and the flatulent skunk of Fate wanders into the air-conditioning system of Eternity...²* Creator/PaulHarvey had his "Paul Harvey… Good day!" for ''Paul Harvey's News and Comment'', and "And ''now'' you know… [[TitleDrop the]] ''[[TitleDrop rest]]'' [[TitleDrop of the story!]]" for ''The Rest of the Story''.²* Garrison Keillor ends his ''Writers' Almanac'' segments with, "Be well... do good work... and keep in touch."²** And his "news from Lake Wobegon" monologue on ''Radio/APrairieHomeCompanion'' always ends with, "That's the news from Lake Wobegon, where all the women are strong, all the men are good-looking, and all the children are above average."²* Rev. J. Vernon [=McGee=], whose ''[[ Through the Bible]]'' program still runs through a five-year cycle to explore the entire Bible, verse by verse, closed off with "May God richly bless you, my beloved," a paraphrase of Psalm 115:14.²** The far less tolerant Pastor J.C. Dove used to thunder "It '''DOES''' make a difference what you believe!!!" at signoff. Rev. Dove, whose show originated at WHOW in Clinton, Illinois, was still active in 1980.²** Many radio and television evangelists will usually close their broadcasts with "(May) God bless you".²* The Blimey Cow Podcast always ends with Jordyn telling the audience "Don't be messy". Occasionally, however, they will roll outtakes after the fact.²* Stephen Hill and Anna Turner's landmark New Age music program ''[[ Hearts of Space]]'', founded in 1973, has ended since February 1990 with Stephen's gentle "Safe journey, space fans... wherever you are." This reassuring signoff may have come from the fact that many early listeners were (and some probably still are) [[EruditeStoner mind trippers]], using the broadcast to accompany [[HigherUnderstandingThroughDrugs contemplative LSD sessions]].²* The Dr. Laura radio show ended with "Now, go take on the day." Later on it became "Now, go do the right thing." ²* Creator/JeanShepherd (of ''Film/AChristmasStory'' fame) would sign off his '70s show on New York's WOR with, "Remember, kiddies: [[UsefulNotes/{{Baseball}} keep your knees loose and your glove well-oiled]]."²* Radio/BobAndRay:²-->"This is Ray Goulding, reminding you to write if you get work..."²-->"...Bob Elliott, reminding you to hang by your thumbs."²* And from Creator/CaseyKasem, on ''Radio/AmericanTop40'': "Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars!"²* ''Radio/WaitWaitDontTellMe'' ends with funny predictions from the panel, after which is the regular sign-off from announcer Bill Kurtis followed by host Peter Sagal thanking the panel by name and telling listeners to come back next week.²-->'''Bill:''' And if any of that happens, panel, we'll ask you about it on ''Wait Wait Don't Tell Me''!²* Sound collage master Creator/DonJoyce of Music/{{Negativland}} hosted the totally insane culture jam ''[[ Over the Edge]]'' every week on KPFA for over thirty years before his untimely death in 2015. He always led off with Vangelis' ''Heaven and Hell''[[note]]a ShoutOut to the days when ''Over the Edge'' was preceded by the floating tranquility of ''Music from the Hearts of Space'', whose host Stephen Hill used to warn listeners about what they were in for if they left the radio on.[[/note]] and conclude with a woman's voice reciting "To create is divine, to reproduce is human. - [[ Man Ray]]." The current hosts, Jon "Wobbly" Leidecker and Robert "K-Rob" Cole, still use these.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Sports]]²* The late St. Louis Cardinals announcer Jack Buck would wrap up his broadcasts with, "Thanks for your time, this time; until next time, so long for just a while."²* Simiarly, late Cincinnati Reds broadcaster Joe Nuxhall was well known for ending with his phrase, "This is the old left-hander, rounding third and heading for home," which was put on display outside the ballpark when the Reds opened the Great American Ballpark in 2003.²* Harry Caray, the much-loved Chicago Cubs broadcaster, gave the totals, then often said "Well, win or lose, I'm a Cub fan and a Bud man, and I hope you are too." And "See you later -- so long, everybody!"²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Video Games]]²* ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' games usually end with a huge setup to have Phoenix yell "OBJECTION!" one more time.²* The ''Franchise/{{Metroid}}'' series, starting with ''VideoGame/SuperMetroid'', displays the message "See you next mission."²* The trailers for ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}'' have Cave Johnson signing off with "Cave Johnson, we're done here!"²* Jane Valderama, in ''VideoGame/SaintsRowTheThird'', signs off on every broadcast after a story mission with "This is Jane Valderama, with your [[MadLibsCatchphrase Steelport [X][==]]]."²* The Squid Sisters from ''VideoGame/{{Splatoon}}'' end their news broadcasts thusly:²--> '''Callie:''' Until next time...\²'''Both:''' Staaaay fresh!²** Pearl and Marina, the Off The Hook duo from [[VideoGame/Splatoon2 the sequel]], end their broadcasts like this:²--> '''Pearl:''' Until next time...\²'''Both:''' Don't get cooked...stay off the hook!²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Web Animation]]²* In-universe, ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'' says at the end of every episode of his show "The Show", "CHANT! WORDS! TOGETHER!"²* Red from ''WebAnimation/OverlySarcasticProductions'' tends to end her videos with "So... yeah."²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Web Original]]²* ''The Brony Notion'': Zigzagged. Usually, the narrator will say, "This is the Brony Notion signing off until next time. Brohoof!", but other times he will say a variation or put something else afterwards.²* ''Dr Wolf'' had two. In his videos talking about the show ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', he would end with "I am Doctor Wolf and I look forward to hearing from you." Whereas, when he's being TheShrink, he ends by taking a deep breath and saying, "It's good to be helping."²* Podcast/TheScathingAtheist and its multiple spinoff shows have some unique ones. At the end of headlines, Heath is prone to shouting the names of games. This started with "Jumanji!", usually, and then moved on to "Boggle!" or "Scrabble!"²* Heath Enwright [[{{Lampshade}} lampshades]] this by ending every episode of the Skepticrat with [[ShapedLikeItself "Catchphrase Signoff."]]²* The signoff for ''God Awful Movies'' are variations on a man from Brooklyn telling you to [[RefugeInVulgarity go fuck yourself]].²* [[TheNineties 90's Kid]] of ''WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall'' ends his scenes with:²-->"I'm '90's Kid, and what you see is what you get!"²* WebVideo/AndreTheBlackNerd usually ends his videos with "If you're new here, [[PleaseSubscribeToOurChannel tickle that subscribe button]]. I made new nerdy videos all week, every week. I love you like I play cousin. I'm outie 5000! [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Chain Chomp!]] [[EatTheCamera Whomp!]] ''(put his hand on the camera)''" At one point, he tried to remove the "Chain Chomp" part, but eventually did it again after the fans said they missed it.²** "I'm outie 5000!" even went to be referenced in ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012''. Even though he did not invented this catchphrase, Andre is a BigNameFan of the show.²* Creator/AnnaAkana ends several of her videos with, "Stay awesome, [[Franchise/{{Batman}} Gotham]]." ²** Copyright issues with Creator/DCComics made her temporarily change it to, "I'm Anna Akana. You stay awesome."²** After her cameo in Franchise/{{Marvel| Cinematic Universe}}'s ''Film/AntMan'', Anna remarked that she might have to change her catchphrase to something Marvel-related. On the spot, she came up with, "I'm Anna-Man. Stay [[{{Pun}} Marvelous]]", which didn't stick.²* ''WebVideo/TheAngryJoeShow'':²-->"I'll see you guys on the next Angry Joe Show."²** Usually adding "Until next time" before that.²* Film Brain has one for ''WebVideo/BadMovieBeatdown'':²-->"I'm Mathew Buck, beating down bad movies everywhere."²** And ''WebVideo/{{Projector}}'':²--->"I'm Mathew Buck fading out."²* Creator/DougWalker does this for a lot of his characters.²** WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic both [[BookEnds ends and begins]] his reviews with the same catch phrase.²--->"I'm The Nostalgia Critic.

In the "Black and Yellow" autopsy, he signs off with "[[PrecisionFStrike fuck]] [[YourMom your mother]]", while his "Christmas Music" autopsy ends with a more holiday appropriate "wrap it and tag it".²** Advice No One Asked For: "I'm Buckley, and you're welcome." ²** Scumbags of the Internet: "So thanks to today's Scumbag of the Internet...for making us all feel better by knowing no matter what we do in life, we'll always be better than they are."²** Bad Head: "And they say there's no such thing as Bad Head."²* Toy reviewer [[ EmGo]] always ends his videos with the same fairly lengthy catchphrase: "This is [=EmGo=] saying remember, you don't stop playing because you grow old, you grow old because you stop playing.

At first, this was followed by a joke "AndNowForSomeoneCompletelyDifferent" ToBeContinued, but this was eventually shortened to this.

They were legally required to give the name of the company that owned the station, plus the broadcast site, frequency, wattage and location of transmitter and antenna. There was often a Sermonette or brief prayer or reflection after that, leading into a musical Signing Off Catch Phrase in the form of the national anthem of whatever country the station is in (a legal requirement in some countries including Mexico). U.S. stations often used the Lord's Prayer (one memorable version had Chief Shatka Bear Step (Nez Perce) giving the prayer in a [[ Native American sign language]]), [[ "America the Beautiful" with nature scenes]], "This Is My Country", "God Bless America" or "My Country 'Tis Of Thee", or a poem like [[ High Flight]]. Some versions of "The Star Spangled Banner" [[ could get pretty creative with their video production]].[[note]]"Flag Evolution" was produced in 1971 by Saxton Graphics Associates and aired on many stations.[[/note]] Many ended off with an hour or so of [[ The Test Pattern]].²* Every Olympic Games (whether summer or winter) is closed out by the IOC president with some variation of the following:²--> And now, in accordance with tradition, I declare the Games of the [ordinal number of Summer Olympics] Olympiad/[ordinal number of Winter Olympics] Olympic Winter Games closed, and I call upon the youth of the world to assemble four years from now in [next host city] to celebrate the Games of the [next ordinal number of Summer Olympics] Olympiad/[next ordinal number of Winter Olympics] Olympic Winter Games.²* Between the Second and Third UsefulNotes/PunicWars, Roman senator Cato the Elder ended every single one of his speeches with "Carthaga delenda est" - "Carthage must be destroyed." - even if his speech was completely unrelated to Carthage. In 146 BC, Rome made good on that when it completely destroyed Carthage in the Third Punic War.²* It's common for Japanese speakers to end a presentation with the sentence &#12372;&#28165;&#32884;&#12354;&#12426;&#12364;&#12392;&#12358;&#12372;&#12374;&#12356;&#12414;&#12375;&#12383; (''goseich&#333; arigat&#333; gozaimashita'') to thank the viewers.
