Watching her raise my sister, watching my sister raise her own daughter, finding my biological sister… it’s quite mad. It’s taught me that we are all… mysterious works of chance. Of choice. Of nature versus nurture. So, to my galaxy of women, thank you for the nurture.

Quotes of the Week: June 7-17

Since the ATX Television Festival, my schedule has been little wonky. So, here are my favorite quotes from the past two and a half weeks, mostly from shows currently on the air, but also other random things I happen to be watching.

Orphan Black

I’m Dying Up Here
Edgar: That is not how a bladder functions.
Gabe: Shut up, Edgar. I’m Jewish, you’re Mexican, which automatically makes me closer to being a doctor than you.

Downward Dog
Martin: I think, so often I forget the really, really obvious things in life. Because I don’t think it’s all that hard to be happy. I…I think you just have to be grateful. Like, you have to remember to be grateful for what’s right in front of you. Because me and Nan are really, really different. Like…like, we’re, like, 60% compatible at best. And, like, we have these huge issues we have to work out. But, like, when you’re always running around looking for what’s wrong with everything you just – you just end up miserable. Yeah, like, I’m a trash dog and she’s, like, a fancy lady, but we have each other, and that’s what’s important. We’re not alone. And for that…for that I’m honestly, really, truly grateful.

Martin: One thing I’ve always wanted to ask is just, like, what if we never got out of bed? Like, ever. Why are we so convinced it would be bad? Like, that might – that might solve everything. Or we could not try my suggestion, and we could just, like, keep getting out of bed every day expecting somehow to achieve a different result, even though that’s the actual dictionary definition of insanity. I mean, I don’t know. Maybe it’s worth a try.

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.

Doctor Who
Doctor: You’re being cheerful. I’m against cheerful.

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.
