Arne Scheie is a part of the cultural landscape for many Norwegians, who have grown up with his commentary. Among others, he is known for his spontaneous outbursts to his colleague Jon Herwig Carlsen such as when Tommy Ingebrigtsen won world championship gold in ski jumping in Thunder Bay in 1995: "Can I kiss you, Jon?" Carlsen replied "Yes! Of course!" Books issued by Scheie include Arne Scheies fotballspørrebok (2001) and Øyeblikkene vi aldri glemmer (2003, with Otto Ulseth). In 2005, he was given the Gullruten honorary award. (en)
