These are my favorite quotes from the past week, mostly from shows currently on the air, but also other random things I happen to be watching.
Fiona: I know you are, but what am I?
Masters of Sex
Bill: They don’t see what you and Helen have done. That you’ve made a family.
Clark: If the bullets don’t work, why the punching? I never understood that.
Winn: I get to make Superman’s new suit?
Clark: No pressure.
Winn: Family is not about score-keeping, or who did more, it’s just about showing up.
Jane the Virgin
Jane: Why won’t you give up?
Michael: Because I’m a fighter. You should know that about me. I’m a fighter.
Lucy: We saved Judith Campbell. Kept history the same.
Agent Christopher: But Garcia Flynn is still alive, and he got away with an atomic bomb!
Wyatt: The situation was chaotic.
Rufus: On the up side, we’re finally starting to gel as a team.
The West Wing
President Bartlet: Keep talking. I’m just going to sit here and think about plutonium, and the things I can do with it.
Barry: He’s just blaming you for all the bad things he’s caused in his life.
Dierdre: I trust the cup holder is of sufficient diameter for a man of your thirsts.
Xavier: I like that you really thought about your word choice and then went with ‘rigamarole.’
Kareema: Everyone’s trying to make sense of an illogical world. That’s just his way. It’s not the only way.
Kareema: Maybe he’s crazy. Maybe what I’m doing is crazy too but, maybe sometimes crazy’s worth it.
The Real O’Neals
Kenny: If a gay falls in the forest, and there’s not another gay to say, “Hey, girl, you okay?” did he even fall?
This Is Us
Toby: But you know who are good together?
Kate: Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie?
Toby: Yeah, duh.
Kate: I love them. And I want them to be my family.
Toby: And also us. We’re pretty good together. But mostly, I was talking about Matt and Savannah.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Mack: Did two fire dudes just drop into a warehouse full of fireworks?
Coulson: You had to see that coming.
Oliver: Just because you can’t feel your tendons being sliced, doesn’t mean you don’t need them.
Evelyn: What kind of a vigilante wears a hockey mask?
Oliver: I think it’s cool.
Dr. Borden: I love that you love your job. You should. You’re amazing at it. It’s a huge part of who you are, and I would never ask you to choose. See, I don’t want these fragmented little pieces of you. I want the whole thing.
The Good Place
Eleanor: How do you like them ethics? I just ethics’d you in the face, Chidi!
Eleanor: Why do bad things always happen to mediocre people who are lying about their identities?
Chuck: Guys, I know kung fu.
