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.
Wormwood: Oh, Gareth, you’re smiling. Sorry, could you stop it? I just find it deeply unsettling.
Richard: I just can’t believe he’s dead.
Roberta: Does seem awfully early in the season for something like this.
Sid: Could he be mostly dead? But not all dead, ’cause mostly dead is slightly alive?
Neo: Yeah, that’s not a thing.
Edith: I suppose Cousin Isabelle is entitled to put up an argument.
Violet: Of course she is! She’s just not entitled to win it!
Violet: I haven’t been in the kitchens in at least twenty years.
Isabelle: Have you got your passport?
Kara: If you hate bigots more than aliens, then, why are you giving Senator Crane so much attention? She’s horrible.
Cat: Because, Kira, while bigots will always take the gold on the medal podium of my contempt, they make excellent click-bait. Also, the more they talk the more they sabotage themselves. It’s a magical implosion happening right before our very eyes.
Alex: There’s no shame in surviving.
Cat: I never got to put a picture that you’d drawn on the fridge. I never got to tell you stories. And I never got to teach you how not to be afraid of the world. And I never got to tell you how amazing I think you are. I never got to be your mom, but I am your biggest fan.
Jane the Virgin
Alba: Poor Manuel, living in the closet for so long. I’m glad he found his authentic life. I have a gay friend at church, and he explained everything to me.
James: I know I come on strong, okay? I’m just an all-in kinda guy. I’m all-in on love. I’m all-in on work. I’m all-in on Law & Order, I’ll tell you that much. Man, I have seen every single episode, including all the spin-offs. That’s like a thousand hours of television! Oh my good God, maybe I do go a little overboard.
Chloe: Lucifer Morningstar. Is that, uh, a stage name, or something?
Lucifer: God-given, I’m afraid.
Maze: I’m worried the humans are rubbing off on you. Stop caring. You’re the devil.
Eliot: Magic doesn’t come from talent. It comes from pain.
Joe: Have you ever seen Barry run? He waddles. Like a slow-ass duck.
Winston: Everything’s all good, then all of a sudden, she’s hiding a basketball player in the shower and I own a cat!
Nick: I haven’t taken my pants off in front of a woman in quite some time. I’m sorry that the pretzel fell out. That was unexpected. I honestly don’t know how long it was in my underpants and that was disturbing to me. Thank you for not over-reacting.
Peggy: I’m so sorry! I get really confused around books.
Peggy: Every eye in the country is on her, and no one sees her.
Josh: I told her it was over. It didn’t matter. She kept climbing up my fire escape.
Liza: Wait. Is that…butt stuff?
Josh: No! I mean, she was literally climbing up my fire escape!
Legends of Tomorrow
Mick: You’re a special kinda crazy. I like it.
Clarke: If you were gonna kill me, you would have done it already.
Roan: There’s still time.
Klaus: Death dances silently in everyone’s shadow. And she doesn’t give a damn. So, why give a damn about her?
