Quotes of the Week: April 23-29

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.

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.

Black Sails

Max: I said no to Madam Guthrie’s plan, despite having no alternative, and at the risk of losing the entire endeavor, because I refuse to situate a man in a position where he might interfere one day with my ability to repair things with you.

Saul: Those people fucked with the wrong bored old man!

Josephine: Hmm.
Lucy: A good one. I loved the research, the facts. I love facts, they’re solid. You can trust them. Your personal life might be a mess, but you always have the facts. It’s like… standing on concrete. But then you realize you’re standing on quicksand, and nothing’s true.
