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.
Debbie: We’re South Siders and we don’t sell out.
Jasper: I particularly enjoyed the part where you called me a ‘pretty young thing.’
Eleanor: It’s too soon for that.
Jasper: I gave it a shot.
Simon: I’m the King of England. I don’t do my own wet work.
Lucy: If there’s only one person for you in the whole world, and you lose them, does that mean you have to live the rest of your life without anyone else? I think you…we…anyone…has to be open to possibilities.
H.R.: The longer you deny someone their potential, the more they’re gonna look for it elsewhere.
Iris: I don’t understand. Where are we?
Jess: Where does a modern girl go to make a fake guy real?
This Is Us
Rebecca: Nothing bad happens on Christmas Eve.
Kareema: You’re like a human hangover.
Hank: Are you dead?
Kareema: Inside? Yes. And I like it that way.
Oliver: He’s trying to prove to me that everyone I-I…I come in contact with, everyone close to me dies, and he’s right. Y… I think that uh… I think that all of you should get as far away from me as you possibly can.
Diggle: Oliver, we are exactly where we’re supposed to be.
The Vampire Diaries
Damon: Merry Christmas, Ric!
Alaric: I killed you.
Caroline: You what?!
Alaric: He deserved it.
Caroline: Well, Damon’s alive, as you can see, Bonnie and Enzo are late, and Stefan’s dead. Merry Christmas. I’ve got gifts!
Medici: Masters of Florence
Giovanni: A foolish man lives for himself. A wise man lives with a purpose.
Agent Hill: What are the rules?
Sara Alice: No fire, no knives, and if anyone finds me, tell them I came from the womb of a jackal.
Agent Hill: Perfect. Be careful.
Jasper: You take my breath away, you know that?
Eleanor: Of course I do.
Cece: Just because he doesn’t believe in the Lord doesn’t mean he can’t have cake at the birthday party.
Schmidt: I guess I just have to come to terms with the fact that my wife is a little bit weirder than I thought she was.
The West Wing
President Bartlet: Sweden has a hundred percent literacy rate, Leo. One hundred percent! How do they do that?
Leo: Well, maybe they don’t and they also can’t count.
Steve: How did you survive so long down there?
OA: I survived because I wasn’t alone.
