These are my favorite quotes from the past week, not just from shows currently on the air, but also other random things I happen to be watching.
Once Upon a Time
Mr. Gold: Maybe you should take a piece of advice from a man who has pushed away every chance at happiness because it was never enough. If it’s within your grasp, if you know where it is and who it’s with, then you should run to it, grasp it and never let it go.
Game of Thrones
Daenerys: Angry snakes lash out. Makes chopping off their heads that much easier.
Varys: You could help another climb those steps and take that seat. The Seven Kingdoms need someone stronger than Tommen, but gentler than Stanis. A monarch who can intimidate the high lords and inspire the people. A ruler loved by millions with a powerful army and the right family name.
Tyrion: Good luck finding him.
Varys: Who said anything about ‘him.’
Jamie: You’re not normally a close-mouthed woman, Claire. I expected noisier displeasure… but, quiet anger can be very effective.
Davina: It must *really* suck to have to be you all the time.
Klaus: It hasn’t been a picnic, honestly.
Jane the Virgin
Rogelio: Who cares if your eggs are too old. We’ll buy new ones.
Caitlin: Is that a bird?
Cisco: It’s a plane.
Felicity: It’s my boyfriend.
Felicity: It’s kinda like I’m dating Barry, but in Oliver’s body.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
May: You’re worried that I don’t understand your choice. Well, sometimes that’s the price of doing the right thing. No one will understand, and it hurts like hell.
Liv: If you live each day like it’s your last, some day you’ll be right.
Winona: You are the most stubborn man I have ever known.
Raylan: Beats angry.
Raylan: Well, I suppose if I allow myself to be sentimental, despite all that has occured, there is one thing I wander back to.
Boyd: We dug coal together.
Liza: She was really pretty, though.
Kelsey: I bet she’s stupid.
Liza: She looked stupid.
Kelsey: Like a big, stupid cow.
Liza: You don’t even remember.
Oliver:There’s a decent chance that you and Palmer are related.
Felicity: I just think sometimes, you’re so focused on people you love, you forget to see that there are people that love you.
Elroy: I have a brain the size of Jupiter. I’m nobody’s fourth Ghostbuster.
Willy: Once you take a man’s life, the least you can do is carry it with you.
Ned: What are you going to do?
Geillis: Looks like I’m going to a fucking barbecue.
Jamie: I swore an oath before the alter of God to protect this woman! And, if you are telling me you consider your authority to be greater than that of the almighty, then I must inform you that I am not of that opinion myself. The first man forward will be the first man down.
Felix: Delphine’s got your number? Well, we definitely need new clone phones.
Sarah: She wants my help saving Leda and Dyad.
Felix: Jesus, don’t these people know you never even finished high school?
