Twitter went nuts, with many people suggesting that this saying needs to become a meme, and soon.

As the pop-culture site (at)Gawker put it: “`Mandy Patinkin, holla’ is the new Angelina Jolie’s leg.” From New York Magazine’s (at)Vulture site: “`Mandy Patinkin, holla’ is the best thank-you ever.” And from NPR’s (at)nprmonkeysee: “If the Internet doesn’t remix `Mandy Patinkin, holla’ by tomorrow morning, it is a failure.”

Others suggested that Jewish delis begin baking Mandy Patinkin challah. Still others made references to Patinkin’s Broadway bona fides with “Evita” jokes.

If someone can figure out a way to incorporate Patinkin’s famous line from “The Princess Bride” _ “Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya, you killed my father, prepare to die” _ then the Internet might truly be worthwhile after all.

`HOMELAND’ STAR JOKES ABOUT PLAYING HOUSE

Married actor Damian Lewis joked to reporters that he might be doing some extra celebrating with “Homeland” co-star Claire Danes, who is also married and came to the Emmys with a baby bump.

“We’re going away to a romantic island together,” the red-headed British actor joked. “When that baby is ginger you guys are going to have a field day.”

The comment may have gotten some members of the press too excited, one of whom asked Danes a few moments later how she viewed the win in light of giving birth.

“Thank god I am not giving birth,” said Danes, who’s in an earlier stage of pregnancy.

The pair reunited later in another backstage area, looking very platonic and like two friends enjoying each other’s success.
