Quotes of the Week: October 30-November 5

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.

Elementary
Joan: Sherlock never said that you two knew each other.
Julius: Yes. I’m not surprised. My very existence seems to embarrass him. You know, if it weren’t for me, our friend Sherlock would still think that the Sun revolves around the Earth.
Sherlock: I was eight when I made that mistake. You chose to wear that vest this morning.
Julius: It was a gift from a fan. How could I resist?
Sherlock: With self-respect.

Sherlock: When you and I first started, I quickly recognized your merits, both as a detective in your own right and in that you facilitated my own process. I’m better at the work I do because of you. But over the years, the relative importance of those two values has flipped. I now value the work that we do, first and foremost, because I do it with you. So if at times I seem overprotective of the system that we’ve built, if I worry that the resentments of others might disrupt it, I have good reason.
Joan: Those chips you showed me last night, you don’t accept them for yourself. You accept them because you’re part of a group. You accept them because the work you did to stand up at a meeting inspires others. It’s bigger than you. Or us. So you show up.

Supergirl
Kara: Maybe don’t let Winn teach you too much about women on this planet.

Kara: I’m sure you’ve figured it out by now, but it’s not a good idea to bet against me.

The Flash
Cisco: Sometimes a man just wants to butter his own bread.

Dierdre: What’s on your social calendar this evening?
Hank: Practicing holding my breath in case of a chemical attack.

Evie: I’m truly sorry for everything.
Fern: You keep saying that but, the truth is, you never made it up to me. Being sorry doesn’t change a thing.

Xavier: I don’t want every possible option. I want you.

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.
