With a lot of shows, what you’ll see happen is they start off really well, and they’re very original, but they become sort of a version of themselves. They stand outside the show… they become a cliche of the show they once were. That’s the whole ‘jumping the shark’ thing.

Paul Wall

Ian Poulter
I feel like some sort of fiction-writing hobo, jumping trains and always hoping I’ll find a good place to start a fire in the next town.

First, when I was 12, I saw a Spanish girl jumping rope. I never saw her face, but it was still the most beautiful sight I’d ever seen.

Michio Kaku
I’ve always put my horses, dogs, and pig before my own needs, so I was well prepared to put my son first. I’m used to waking up in the middle of the night… no matter how tired I am, jumping up to take care of my animals. Now, I do the same for my son.

Bob Beamon
I’m jumping on a trend to try to engage my younger constituents. They need to know that a lot of what’s happening now will impact their futures. If taking a ‘selfie’ with the chair of the SEC, Steny Hoyer, or Alzheimer’s research advocates, gets their attention, then it’s worth it. Plus, it’s fun.

The only exercise I excel at is jumping to conclusions.

Baseball moved too slow for me. I wanted to be out running and jumping.
Jason Sehorn
You might have a great fence, a great shoot, run, and swim, but you might get a dodgy horse. Each country supplies the horse; you get 20 minutes to warm up with it, and then you have to do the jumping course. Pentathlon’s difficult because everything has to come together.

Brendan Iribe
I remember, once I was stressed, with an upcoming paper deadline. That little Microsoft Word clippy guy would show up in my face, jumping around and asking if I needed help.

Richard Carmona
I feel like, if the guys can look at me in the huddle and see a calm and collected face, that they’re going to relax a little bit. The way I look at it, leadership and being that guy is, don’t be someone you’re not. Don’t be a hoorah guy jumping around and clapping your hands if you’re not that guy.
Matt Flynn
I’ve had hundreds of challenges at Traveller gatherings. They get a few beers in them, and they start thinking they are Tyson or Ali: throwing punches, swearing, and jumping around with their big fat bellies. I’d love to knock a few of them out.

Paul Lambert
There are two types of paparazzi. The ones who hide who get you with your mouth hanging wide open or jumping up and down like an idiot on the street. I much prefer them to the ones who come out and follow you.

Carol Channing
Something that’s Crunk is off the hook. It’s popping, it’s going down if it’s Crunk. A football player listening to his Walkman as he’s getting ready for the game, jumping up and down, he’s Crunk.
Lil Jon
I think because I’m so naturally happy and unaffected and open, people thought I didn’t take the jumping seriously. You’re up that high, believe me – you take it very seriously.

Jared Isaacman
If we’re just going to have contenders fighting just to fight, that doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. Then I might as well just start jumping around divisions too because there’s a lot of fun fights for myself in other divisions that I think I would love to entertain.
Aljamain Sterling
I’m very caring with animals. I think patience is a big deal, because animals are always jumping around. I love to take care of people, so I think I’d be a good vet. I always wanted to be a vet when I was little.
Jennifer Love Hewitt
I still remember when I was 18 and my life was completely different. I was in my apartment, and I got the call that I got Stiles for this pilot. I was just jumping around with my roommates, freaking out. It’s crazy to think about.
Dylan O’Brien
Jumping on the trampoline for even a half an hour is a really good workout. You get really tired. The next day, you’re feeling it. And you really have to use your core. If you don’t, your lower back hurts the next day.

Joe Buck

Machine Gun Kelly
I hated my early videos. I really did. I hated ‘The Rhythm.’ Hated it. It’s not my vibe to have lot of white people jumping on trampolines.
The second I walk onto the set and I know that there’s a camera and I know that there’s a David Twohy behind that camera, there is zero pressure. There is just me jumping into a pool called ‘Riddick.’ It’s the most free I am. It’s like channeling something.
Vin Diesel
I’ve tried everything other than jumping out of a plane, but nothing gives you an adrenaline rush like racing a car.

When you’re jumping, it’s just an aggressiveness, but I think the exhilaration and the fun comes after you make the bar and you’re falling. That’s the best part – a few seconds to celebrate and relax.
Jenn Suhr
When you see a crowd of people jumping up and down at a pop concert, all gloriously in the moment, I don’t think you’ll ever see a comedian there. They’ll all be standing at the sides, looking at how it all fits together.
Steve Coogan

I’m just disappointed the folks never took a picture of me when I was five years old jumping off the barn into a haystack with my Superman cape.
Wally Funk

If your agent or publisher is jumping up and down at the thought of your novel, it’s because they’re picturing the movie poster on the side of the bus.

Happiness is like a cat, If you try to coax it or call it, it will avoid you; it will never come. But if you pay not attention to it and go about your business, you’ll find it rubbing against your legs and jumping into your lap.
William Bennett
I joined the international stage quite late. I didn’t do many of the youth age groups, so to come into the senior team and to be offered a Nike deal – a very, very low Nike deal to start with – but I was jumping up to bite the woman’s hand off to sign the piece of paper.
Fran Kirby
I don’t like bungee jumping, but I do like skiing.

Brooke Sweat
Sometimes a poem should just be about a girl jumping rope. It doesn’t have to be something that is imbued with more despair.

Rashid Johnson
Jumping isn’t as important to my training as you might think; I’m only in the sandpit once a week. There’s a high risk factor of injury doing it, so instead, I rely on my progress in the gym to judge how far I’ll jump on the big day.
Greg Rutherford
I got attention by being funny at school, pretending to be retarded, and jumping around with a deformed hand.

In most every other country, ‘body flying’ more commonly known as BASE jumping is legal and looked upon as a beautiful art.

Dean Potter
My whole life I’ve always innovated the gear to match my pursuits. I’ve innovated the best climbing gear, the best slacklining gear, and definitely the most advanced BASE jumping gear.
Dean Potter
I love that, even after jumping through hoops forever, I can still get that buzz, that hook. That’s very healthy, but it’s bittersweet, too, because if you don’t get the part, you have to deal with the disappointment. I don’t think I’ll ever negotiate those peaks and troughs wholly healthily.
Gina McKee
Write the best book you can, the one that demands to be written, no matter what genre it is. Even a trend the trades tell you has gone stale can be revitalized by a superb piece of writing. It’ll never be revitalized by someone jumping on a trend bandwagon.
Jonathan Maberry
I made a series for ITV, just after I retired from Tests in 2009, called ‘Flintoff Versus the World.’ The idea was that I would attempt a series of extreme sports – rodeo riding, jumping out of aeroplanes, paragliding, cliff diving. I thought, ‘Yeah, it looks fun. It’s six weeks having a laugh.’
Andrew Flintoff
