The amazing phrase from Dexter's laboratory in the episode "The Big Cheese", when he listens to a French recording overnight to learn said language. This consequentially gets stuck on repeat, on this phrase. The next day all he can say is "omelette du fromage", actually working to his advantage in everything he does (except at the end, when his lab blows up).

Although meant to depict "cheese omelette", this phrase is grammatically incorrect. You should say "omelette au fromage", which means "an omelette with cheese".

Despite this, people still say the phrase "for the lols."
Mike: I only know one french word. Actually a phrase: Omelette du fromage.

Sarah: Dexter's lab?

Mike: Dexter's lab!

Sarah: Hahahaha!!

Mike: Roflcopter Lolmobile!

Sarah: 'o.O?

Mike: Jk.

Sarah: -.-

A line from Steve Martin's "Let's Get Small" album.

Steve Martin does a routine on his 1977 album “Let’s Get Small” where he talks about learning to say “cheese omelet” in French. Armed with this limited knowledge, he enters a restaurant in Paris and proceeds to order a shoe with cheese on it while asking the waiter to force it down his throat.
Oh waiter, I'll have an omelette du fromage!
