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.
Nora: If we can’t have a sense of humor about you being the Messiah, we’re gonna have a problem.
Beth: You know it’s true what they say: behind every great man is a strong woman.
Lena: I wouldn’t know. I’ve never stood behind a man.
Jane the Virgin
Alba: You’re in a long term relationship with grief. But it has to evolve. And it’s okay to keep letting go. You have to.
Barry: I need to talk to me. Do you know where he is?
Liv: I believe God is a woman so, you’re really screwed.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Daisy: For what it’s worth, I didn’t…I didn’t totally understand him until I met you. So, I guess…I guess there was some good in him all along.
Coulson: Hydra doesn’t think we’re smart enough to know when we’re being fed alternative facts to keep us afraid. To keep them in power. Remember, there are more of us than there are of them and, now that we know the truth, we have a choice to make. We all have the opportunity to be patriots. Will you take a stand? Are you going to hold them accountable?…A wise man once told me that a person can do anything once they realize they’re apart of something bigger. It’s taken me a while to understand that. For years, I was just a face in the crowd. A history teacher who spread Hydra’s lies. They seemed too imposing for any one person to fight. But now, I’m choosing to stand up. To become a part of something bigger. I really do believe that together we can accomplish anything. Because, the truth is, I’m not just a history teacher. My name is Phil Coulson, and I’m an Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.
The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon
John Oliver: A tickle from the Dalai Lama is a tickle you remember.
The West Wing
C.J.: We need to be investigated by someone who wants to kill us just to watch us die. We need someone perceived by the American people to be irresponsible, untrustworthy, partisan, ambitious, and thirsty for the limelight. Am I crazy, or is this not a job for the U.S. House of Representatives?
Weller: I’m great at puzzles.
Patterson: Haha…. Yes, in your own way.
Dear White People
Troy: Coco, you’re here?
Coco: Am I supposed to be home, devastated? Oh, you know what? (digs through purse) I’m fresh out of fucks to give! Do you have any fucks?
Core Student: No fucks here.
Coco: Do you have any fucks?
Coco: Troy, we are all out of fucks. I have gum, though.
Doctor: Always remember, Bill: passion fights, but reason wins.
