These are my favorite quotes from the past two weeks, mostly from shows currently on the air, but also other random things I happen to be watching.
William: The absence of closeness makes you dry inside.
Game of Thrones
Brienne: Don’t die for pride when you can fight for blood.
Jaqen: Finally, a girl is no one.
Arya: A girl is Arya Stark of Winterfell, and I’m going home.
Jennifer: If there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that nothing frees you to be crazy like learning that you’re not.
Turn: Washington’s Spies
Talmadge: I know there’s nothing more painful for you, nor is there anything more necessary for the cause. We make sacrifices so that others don’t have to.
Krystal: Wait, who are you again?
Sarah: I’m Sarah. I’m your clone.
Krystal: Right, whatever.
Alison: (deleted scene) What can we do, Sarah? I have the runs, but I’m packing heat.
The Last Tycoon
Monroe: Some things exist just to be beautiful. They don’t have to make any more sense than that.
Ross: What happened to him?
Rupert: I decided to take a closer look at a musket ball.
Game of Thrones
Yezzan: Your reign is over.
Daenerys: My reign has just begun.
Catherine: My question was, what’s your take on the financial crisis?
Gary: Oh, I just think they ran out of money. They should probably just print more. I don’t know why it’s been such a big issue.
Olivia: My place in the great cycle ends today.
Rachel: War is easy. These girls are hard.
Quinn: There’s no hair pulling, no scratching. It’s like a B+ at best.
Any Given Wednesday with Bill Simmons
Bill: (on Lebron) He’s still our captain if aliens show up and challenge us to a basketball game.
Black Jack: What kind of God creates a world where monsters thrive, beauty and purity is rewarded with poverty and death?
Claire: The same God also offers an opportunity for redemption.
