    Mr. Fry: So, what should we name him?
    Mrs. Fry: Uh, you pick. I picked dinner last night.
    Mr. Fry: Well, I was thinking of Philip. After those screwdrivers?
    Mrs. Fry: That's a great idea! More morphine, please.

    Ha! I was just headed here to post about this, too! I thought the Jennifer years were interesting, too, but also thought the shift from Emily to Emma was fascinating because Emily stayed at #1 nationally, but (apparently) only held three states' top spots. So there must have been enough CA, TX, and UT babies named Emily to keep it as the national #1!

    I think it's cool that after 1978 you don't see that kind of dominance anymore. Jennifer took over the country in the mid-late 70s...all 50 states had it ranked number 1. Hasn't happened again.
