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.
House of Cards
Francis: To mourn is not to fear. To grieve is not to admit defeat.
Francis: That’s right. We don’t submit to terror. We make the terror.

Henry: So, who’s ready for Operation Firebird?
Spratt: I’m full of ideas when it comes to combining comfort and elegance, m’lady.
Violet: Don’t be mysterious. It’s the last resort of people with no secrets.
Bertie: Would you believe me if I said I couldn’t live without you?
Edith: You’ve done a pretty good job of living without me lately.
Bertie: I’ve done a very bad job.
Mrs. Patmore: You know your problem?
Daisy: I bet I soon will.
Lord Merton: As my son, I love you, but I’ve tried and failed to like you!
Jane the Virgin
Paola: I miss my mother everyday. Sometimes, I wish I hadn’t killed her.
Penny: Hell is real, and it smells like Axe body spray.
Mike: I don’t know about music, and wine, and, frankly, any country that’s not named Texas.
Eliot: Texas is a state.
Mike: Not when you’re from Texas.
Eliot: Becoming me was the greatest creative project of my life.

The Real O’Neals
Kenny: I mean, he doesn’t eat meat!
Eileen: You mean for Lent?
Kenny: No, like, ever!
Eileen: No. He’s gonna die alone.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
May: Maybe you’re not supposed to get over it. Some things you can’t move past. They scar you. Change you permanently.
Legends of Tomorrow
Nurse Carlisle: I should have known better than to fall for a ninja.
Kane: The threat’s inside the walls. Can’t you see that?
Mozart in the Jungle
Rodrigo: Do you know how to make God laugh?
Hailey: You tickle him.
Rodrigo: No, no, you don’t tickle Him because He’s not ticklish. Everybody knows that.
Icabod: Sometimes, the things will we think will hurt us will actually save us.
