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.
Queen Victoria: I would like my reign to be a merciful one.
Eleanor: We have to trust somebody sometime, right?
Winn: I’m not the red shirt! I’m not the red shirt! You! You’re the red shirt!
Wyatt: Why is everyone looking at us like they want to kill us?
Bass Reeves: Because the two of us are black, and one’s Indian.
Rufus: Huh. So, it’s like the scary version of Blazing Saddles.
Bass Reeves: Who the hell ever said “easy” and “right” were the same thing?
The West Wing
President Bartlet: The only thing you ever had to do to make me happy is come home at the end of the day.
Barry: See, I’m livin’ with somebody now, so I can’t have criminals constantly interrupting our alone time.
H.R.: I think that a man often meets his destiny on the very road he takes to avoid it.
This Is Us
Kevin: Before you say anything, there’s three sentences I need to say to you, okay?
Kevin: I was head-over-heels in love with you the moment that I saw you. I never should’ve let you get away. And, uh… It’s like, you were a part of me, you know, like you were my arm, and when I lost you, it’s like I… lost my arm. Dot, dot, dot. It’s like I’ve been walking around without an arm for over a decade, you know, and, uh… comma, I really want my arm back. You know, ’cause I never stopped thinking about it, comma, not… ever. Parentheses, you look amazing, by the way. End parentheses. Period.
Tyler: All I wanna do is make you feel safe.
Kennedy: You are a strong and beautiful woman, and nothing can break you unless you give it permission.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
May: Today wasn’t great.
Coulson: Cauliflower isn’t great. Today was a kick in the balls.
Ronnie: You wanna be a drunk, you be a drunk. But I won’t allow you to blame my daughter for it.
Louis: Instead of picking fresh fruit off the vine, I’m gonna steal some ripe bananas right out the grocery story.
Gretchen: Well, the question is, whose grocery store are you plannin’ on knockin’ over?
Louis: It’s Robert Zane, and before you try to talk me out of it, he just said that I’m not fit to lead right to my face.
Gretchen: Then give me a gun and point me up the hill, because if he’s comin’ after you, he’s comin’ at me. And I got your back.
Kevin: Archie got hot! He’s got abs now!
Veronica: Maybe that reckoning is now. And maybe that reckoning is me.
