comment Origin of “knife to a gunfight” quote
@poepje: The Ngram chart, with zero results before 1987, suggests it wasn't a common expression before The Untouchables (1987).

comment First use of on-screen text messages, like in Sherlock and House of Cards
@Dan: Well, it's certainly similar -- avoiding showing a "boring" phone or letter to keep the story moving forward. I think it's somehow different with an SMS, short by definition, that pops up on screen almost as if your television screen is the mobile (somehow like second screens and all that).
