A catch phrase (or catchphrase) is a phrase or expression recognized by its repeated utterance. Such phrases often originate in popular culture and in the arts, and typically spread through a variety of mass media (such as literature and publishing, motion pictures, television and radio), as well as word of mouth.

Any technological device, whether fictional or hypothetical, that is used to achieve time travel is commonly known as a time machine.
