What catchphrase made a celebrity out of 81-year-old Clara Peller in 1984?

Answer:

I've fallen and I can't get up!

"Where's the beef?" was a catchphrase originated by the fast food chain Wendy's. The phrase first came to public attention as a television commercial for the Wendy's chain of hamburger restaurants in 1984. In the ad, 81-year-old actress Clara Peller receives a burger with a massive bun from a fictional competitor which uses the slogan "Home of the Big Bun". The small patty prompts Peller to angrily exclaim, "Where's the beef?" Clara Peller instantly emerged a pop culture sensation. The diminutive octogenarian made the three-word phrase a cultural phenomenon, and herself a cult star.
