Blindspot

Quotes of the Week: April 30-May 13

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
Henry: I will have faith in God, and God alone. Mortal men must earn it.

American Gods
Laura: Waiting for the sky to fall is gonna cause more bother than the sky actually falling.

Arrow
Oliver: It’s not about trusting you. I’ll always trust you. I don’t trust myself.

Sense8
Capheus: Many terrible things happen every day. They have happened to me, to my family. It’s why courage is so important. It takes courage to see such terrible things happen and still get up every day, and be able to see what is still beautiful. It takes courage to remember that this is a world where our dreams, like our grandmothers’, do come true.

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

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.

The Leftovers
Nora: If we can’t have a sense of humor about you being the Messiah, we’re gonna have a problem.

Supergirl
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.

The Flash
Barry: I need to talk to me. Do you know where he is?

iZombie
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.

Quotes of the Week: March 19-April 1

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.

Black Sails
Billy: There are no two people close enough that something cannot separate them.

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. You are the bravest person I have ever known. The truest person I have ever known. And I betrayed you and it sickens me. I am so sorry for working so hard to protect the wrong things. For failing to see that there is nothing important that does not include you.

Jane the Virgin

Cassandra: Rapunzel, I want to trust you, and I trust that you trust Eugene, but *I* don’t trust Eugene, and if I can’t trust Eugene, I can’t trust you, and you’re just going to have to trust me! …Trust me, that logic tracks.

Grace and Frankie
Frankie: Nobody doesn’t need Kenny Loggins!

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

Quotes of the Week: December 18-January 7

These are my favorite quotes from the past few weeks, mostly from shows currently on the air, but also other random things I happen to be watching.

Shameless
Frank: It’s like a family heirloom, only drugs!

Frank: Every time I look at one of you kid’s faces, I see her face looking back at me – smiling, laughing. She was strong. And you’re strong. And she was brave, and you’re brave. I know you didn’t think much of her, but…she loved you. And you wouldn’t be who you are, and I wouldn’t be who I am, if she hadn’t come into our lives. So, hate her if you want…but she’s in you, and that’s a good thing.

Quotes of the Week: November 6-12

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.

Quotes of the Week: October 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.

Supergirl
J‘onn: People in this world don’t have much tolerance for others who look different. I say that as an alien, and as someone who’s worn the face of a black man for fifteen years.

Lucifer
Lucifer: Welcome to Devil Time.
Chloe: What are you doing?
Lucifer: Trying out my new catch phrase.
Dan: “Welcome to Devil Time”? What the hell does that mean?
Lucifer: She knows what it means.
Jamie: I have no idea what that means.

Chloe: A couple days ago, I was in a really bad car accident. And I’ve spent the last few days trying to convince everybody that cares about me that it wasn’t a big deal. The truth is, I’m terrified. I’m scared of how it can all just end, with no rhyme or reason. And what I want to do right now is just go home and read a bedtime story to my daughter. But, you know, that’s not up to me either. We can’t control what happens to us, only how it affects us and the choices we make.

Timeless
Ian Fleming: Rufus, there are allies, contacts, and women, but never trust. Only the mission.

Conviction
Hayes: Honestly, Dan, I hope your audience sees through this charade, because this here – Me in these pearls and this stupid suit – this is what privilege looks like.
Dan: Can you elaborate on that?
Hayes: The fact that you’re here talking to me – this is the problem. Rich, famous, powerful people get away with murder all the time, sometimes literally. Coke in the purse, insider trading, sexual assault – you name it. I screw up. Because of my last name, the cops call the DA. He calls my mom. Strings are pulled. I’m out on the street in an hour with a new job – a job I initially had no interest in. Funny thing is, I like causing trouble, busting the system, exposing wrongful convictions. Kind of gets me off. So, really, it worked for me, again. Now, hopefully, it’s also a bonus to people like Penny Price – a mom accused of killing her own son – to have me on their side. Because I may be a hot mess, but I’m a hot mess with privilege. And since Penny Price has none, the least I can do is lend her some of mine.

The West Wing
Senator Marino: It seems to me that more and more we’ve come to expect less and less from each other.

Arrow
Diggle: You broke me out of prison.
Lyla: For better or worse, Johnny.
Diggle: I told you I wanted to stay.
Lyla: And I figured, if you wanted to make your own decisions then you wouldn’t have gotten married.

Evelyn: Things have really fallen apart without Oliver.
Oliver: It’s a good thing I’m back then.
Rory: Was he waiting for an entrance line?
Curtis: No. He’s just that cool.

Shameless
Lip: Slut.
Fiona: I know you are, but what am I?

Masters of Sex
Bill: They don’t see what you and Helen have done. That you’ve made a family.

Supergirl
Clark: If the bullets don’t work, why the punching? I never understood that.

Winn: I get to make Superman’s new suit?
Clark: No pressure.

Winn: Family is not about score-keeping, or who did more, it’s just about showing up.

Jane the Virgin
Jane: Why won’t you give up?
Michael: Because I’m a fighter. You should know that about me. I’m a fighter.

Timeless

Agent Christopher: But Garcia Flynn is still alive, and he got away with an atomic bomb!
Wyatt: The situation was chaotic.
Rufus: On the up side, we’re finally starting to gel as a team.

The West Wing
President Bartlet: Keep talking. I’m just going to sit here and think about plutonium, and the things I can do with it.

The Flash
Barry: He’s just blaming you for all the bad things he’s caused in his life.

No Tomorrow
Dierdre: I trust the cup holder is of sufficient diameter for a man of your thirsts.

Xavier: I like that you really thought about your word choice and then went with ‘rigamarole.’

Kareema: Everyone’s trying to make sense of an illogical world. That’s just his way. It’s not the only way.

Kareema: Maybe he’s crazy. Maybe what I’m doing is crazy too but, maybe sometimes crazy’s worth it.

Quotes of the Week: September 25-October 1

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.

New Girl
Jess: Let’s get ready to Rodham!

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Director Mace: There’s so much S.H.I.E.L.D. history that Agent Carter herself didn’t know it all.

Mack: Why? Why are you doing this?
Fitz: Because she’s turned her back on us, Mack! Because something terrible happened, and she didn’t want our help getting through it!
Mack: Slow down, Turbo.
Fitz: Well, we’ve all been through terrible things, all of us, and we’ve never turned our back!
Daisy: I…I’m doing what I need to do.
Mack: And it still affects us. Like it or not.

This Is Us
Kevin: What did I ever do those first two minutes without you?
Kate: Uh, you cried and you crapped a lot.
Kevin: Sounds about right.

Toby: I heard that Deadpool was her idea… or maybe it was Hamilton, I get those two confused.

Rebecca: Hey, how do you think we’re doing so far? At parenting?
Jack: I…
Rebecca: ‘Cause I think we’re at a six. On a sliding scale, one through ten, I think we’re at a six, and I think I’m being generous.
Jack: Bec…
Rebecca: Seven, fine, but only because there are three of them.
Jack: Baby, I…
Rebecca: And the thing is, I’m trying really hard to get us to a nine. Because they are cute kids, and they deserve nine-parents. And the thing is, I feel like I’m there, Jack. I feel like I’m operating at a nine. Because I do individualized lunches, and I do individualized tuck-ins for each kid so nobody feels gypped. And… when you’re home, and you’re you, you’re way better than I am. You’re a ten when you’re you, Jack. But you’re getting home later and later, and when you do come home, you’re…
Jack: Bec, what are you saying?
Rebecca: The drinking has to stop. You have to reign it in, baby, because I won’t have it in my house.
Jack: You won’t have it in your house.
Rebecca: I won’t! So, if it’s a problem, fix it. Be a man, and fix it. Because I’m done letting you lower our score.

The West Wing
Ron: It wasn’t your fault. It wasn’t Gina’s fault. It wasn’t Charlie’s fault. It wasn’t anybody’s fault, Toby. It was an act of madmen. You think a tent was going to stop them? We got the President in the car. We got Zoe in the car. And at 150 yards and five stories up, the shooters were down 9.2 seconds after the first shot was fired. I would never let you not let me protect the President. You tell us you don’t like something, we figure out something else. It was an act of madmen.

Quotes of the Week: End of Summer

UnReal
Quinn: Loose lips get water-boarded and their bodies get dumped in the desert.

Zoo
Allison: This is a change. And we both know you don’t handle change well.
Mitch: No, and in some tautological Rubik’s cube of logic, I wish that I could change my aversion to change, but that, in and of itself, would require…change.

Democratic National Convention
Hillary Clinton: When there are no ceilings, the sky’s the limit.

The Great British Baking Show
