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.
Kara: People of National City, this is Supergirl and… I hope you can hear me. We have been attacked. Mothers and fathers, friends and neighbors, children, everyone. Suddenly stopped by a force of evil as great as this world has ever known. Your attacker has thought to take your free will, your individuality, your spirit, everything that makes you who you are. When facing an attack like this, it’s easy to feel hopeless. We retreat. We lose our strength, lose ourselves. I know. I lost everything when I was young. When I first landed on this planet, I was sad and alone but, I found out that there is so much love in this world out there for the taking. And you, the people of National City, you helped me. You let me be who I’m meant to be. You gave me back to myself. You made me stronger than I ever thought possible, and I love you for that. Now, in each and every one of you, there is a light, a spirit, that can not be snuffed out. It won’t give up. I need your help again. I need you to hope. Hope that you will remember that you can all be heroes. Hope that when faced with an enemy determined to destroy your spirit you will fight back and thrive. Hope that those who once may have shunned you will, in a moment of crisis, come to your aid. Hope that you will see again the faces of those you love, and perhaps even those you’ve lost.
Alex: You’re not the only bad ass in the family.
Kara: To family. Love bonds us all.
Jane the Virgin
Alba: God doesn’t need to see your boobies as you enter the Holy Sacrament of Marriage.
Jane: You’re getting your own color in my calendar!
Michael: Yeah, that’s not as sexy to me as it is to you.
Zoe: What’s this? It’s a chicken. Or what’s left of it.
Lucifer: If that’s supposed to be an offering for me, then I decline on grounds of salmonella.
Lucifer: Felii hircus. It’s Latin. It means “children of the goat.” Why do they always associate me with goats? I mean, I don’t even like their cheese.
Boston: I’ve seen worse. I’ll need a week.
Jane: You’ve got ten hours.
Boston: That is *much* less time!
Cisco: The best plan we can come up with so far is to set off a nuclear warhead next to the city’s electrical grid, so…
Barry: We’re not gonna do that.
Zoom: You can’t lock up the darkness!
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Coulson: I’ve met gods. Gods bleed.
Monty: Following creepy music is a bad idea… or we could follow the creepy music.
Cosima: Secret lab under a comic book shop. What more could a girl want?
Donny: She’s changed her hair, obviously.
Helena: ‘Cause it was too ugly.
Alison: She eats frozen bread and she’s murdered people.
Donny: Well, so have we…
Alison: That’s different. Helena’s trained to kill people. We’re manslaughterers.
Beyonce: Why can’t you see me? Everyone else can.
Beyonce: Why do you deny yourself heaven? Why do you consider yourself undeserving? Why are you afraid of love?
Jamie: His name is Fergus. Actually, it’s Claudel, but we agreed that’s not very manly.
Selina: Honey, it’s Yemen. Life gives you Yemen, you gotta make Yemenade.
