These are my favorite quotes from the past two weeks, not just from shows currently on the air, but also other random things I happen to be watching.
The Last Ship
CMC Jeter: We’ve taken our fair share of hits these past few weeks. Suffered painful loses. Sometimes it feels like more than we can bear. Yet here we gather. United. Shipmates. Every time we’re called, we answer: “Here I am.” We answer knowing that the world, the survival of our species, depends on our actions here at sea, and fully aware that we answer at our own peril, and still we answer: “Here. I. Am.” I’m not gonna put a silver lining around our pain. Today we grieve. And we remember our fallen and we thank them for their service to us and to mankind. Yes, today we grieve, but tomorrow we do press on. We continue to answer the call: “Here I am.”
Terry: Think of us as the landlords and, if you wanna stay in business, you gotta pay your rent.
Sam: The only reason I ever thought I could be a dad in the first place is because of you. Being with you has changed me. I’m a better man, which means I might actually be able to be the dad I never thought I could be. And I want to show that to you. I want to be that…with you.
Stonebridge: Aborting the mission’s an option.
Scott: No fucking way.
Stonebridge: Ha. Which we discussed maturely and both agreed on.
Scott: Thank you.
I Am Cait
Jenny: You don’t need a man to make you a woman.
Maggie: I have this feeling that we’re gonna be good and remain good for all of time.
Emma: What if it’s an emergency?
Maggie: What kind of emergency could it be? Like a rabbinical sex emergency?
Mobley: You know, I’ve run all the scenarios of our little revolution here, but, uh…using a dead puppy oven was not on my list.
Oliver: Serve. Protect. And don’t screw up.
Hand of God
Nick: Why don’t you step outside while I finish talking to my perspective client.
Nick: Or casually. As long as you end up on the other side of that door.
