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.
The White Princess
Dowager Queen Elizabeth: What will you say to God when you see him? How will you explain all that blood on your hands?
Zorya: You believe in nothing, so you have nothing.
Mr. Wednesday: So you didn’t believe ’til you did, and then the world changed because you believed.
Cat: I can imagine that you’re feeling afraid, and feeling like your world is spinning out of control but believe me, you have a power. And right now, you have a job to do. Resist. Resist these invaders with everything you’ve got. They come with empty promises and closed fists. They promise to make our world great again, and yet they know nothing about the people who make this world great. They think they can con us. And if that doesn’t work, what, they’re going to beat us into submission? They have no idea who they’re up against. Aliens and humans, we need to band together, and we need to stand up and fight back. Everyone needs to be a superhero. Everyone needs to get up and say, ‘Not in my house!’ Let’s prove to these thugs that we are strong, and we’re united, and we are not going to be conquered.
Linda: You’re trying to Parent Trap God and the Divine Goddess?!
Jane the Virgin
Rafael: When I think of family, you’re who I see.
Jim: You ever made eye contact with someone while they stuck a finger farther and farther up your butt? And you don’t know how much more you can handle, but they do?
Joe Buck: I am in the bathroom right now.
Jim: Ah, just answer the question, Joe.
Joe Buck: I was born in Florida. Of course I’ve had a finger in my ass.
Jim: Then you know what it’s like to be in love, Joe Buck.
Jones: My friend’s friend is no more trustworthy than my enemy’s enemy.
Jennifer: Okay, egg, listen up. You’re gonna see something weird. Don’t be scared, okay?
Young Jennifer: Okay, chicken.
Jones: No god shall forgive us this sin. Perhaps none should. For that, all we have is each other.
Athan: The history I’ve seen is one of great women sung badly by clumsy men.
Deacon: It’s the beginning.
Jennifer: The beginning of the end.
Matt: Revelation’s not supposed to be taken literally.
Nora: Ah, so it’s only literal when it’s not ridiculous?
Matt: That’s right.
Jane the Virgin
Jane: Marc Anthony *is* attending and, per your instructions, he will be asked, ‘Who are you?’ and turned away.
Alba: I’m going to yell at you! So you don’t cry! Because your makeup looks good!
Tracy: He stole my future. Why does he deserve one?
Vivian: Is that a human pulse I’m feeling? Or are you just happy to see me?
