Examples of Johnny in a Sentence

  1. Paul Reiser:

    I think that’s part of what makes this show so special and unique, nobody else has it. To be able to use actual footage of Johnny as the show these characters are creating and making every night, it really gives it authenticity… And for me, it was just an extra bonus of joy to go through these clips and pick them out. It was an embarrassment of riches. Most of them I haven’t even seen. A lot of them I remembered, but haven’t watched in 40 years. Not only do you see these guests again, but you can watch Johnny’s skill. He was just so good. He really set the standard.

  2. Gore Vidal:

    There is hardly an American male of my generation who has not at one time or another tried to master the victory cry of the great ape as it issued from the androgynous chest of Johnny Weissmuller, to the accompaniment of thousands of arms and legs snapping during attempts to swing from tree to tree in the backyards of the Republic.

  3. Paul Reiser today .:

His summer job became a longer job and before you know it, he’s there forever. No matter how much he screwed up, everybody said, ‘ Well, that’s Johnny’s kid. You ca n’t touch him. ’ We obviously did n’t know that, but thought it was perfect.
