The abbreviation game

OK, so, because I'm bored, and because we all seem to have so much trouble figuring out obscure acronyms and abbreviations around here, I decided to make a game out of it. Actually it's partly inspired by this:

FMO,SOY FMT,SOM

It took me a few minutes to figure it out. So I figured, if I must be tortured by my own curiosity, it's only fair that I should torture everyone else as well!

So anyway, here are a few more (just well known expressions/quotes, not TCF related):

ABITHIWTITB
YSYEO
DPAYEIOB
ARSGNM
TNBLSB
LBTS,DBTS
THAW
LMPF.IYDSALAOIAW,YCMI.
GAMMD
TWDMAR(BTLD)
SNE,HNE,SNE
IBE,EAC
APSIAPE
AAADKTDA
MASLWLABOC.YNKWYGG.
TEBGTW
DSTPT(ADPTST)
YDD!
TPIMTTS
DHACM
ASLTW
IL,TIMBD,ATIMOBD.
TBONTB,TITQ
DCYCBTH
INDY
DAAGBF
YCLAHTW,BYCMHD
ITSF,WI
TGIAGOTOSOTF
TGIAGOTST
DODN.TINT.
SBTB

Either PM your guesses to me, or post them as spoilers.

And as an added bonus... the first person to get them all wins absolutely nothing!

Does "OP" stand for "Original Post", "Original Poster", or "Ocean Pacific" in this context?
