Quotes of the Week: April 11-17

These are my favorite quotes from the past week, not just from shows currently on the air, but also other random things I happen to be watching.

Supergirl
Cat: Call Harrison Ford and tell him that I’m flattered but, once and for all, I do not date older men. Especially when they’re married.

Non: The human race finally has a chance to live, or it would suffer the same fate as Krypton. And the same thing is happening on Earth, with a populace more interested in reality stars and political circuses than working together to solve the world’s problems.
Max: So, mind control is the answer to global warming. Why didn’t I think of that?

Cat: Hope is stronger than fear.

Blindspot
Zapata: Aldebaran is the brightest star in Taurus, as in, the Taurus bull…What? I like stars and I was very unpopular in high school.

David: I’m gonna go.
Paterson: I don’t want you to.
David: I know. But, I’m already gone.

Castle
Prince Hasheim: If one wished to keep priceless history safe from looters and terrorists, there is no better place for them to wait out the conflict than in the basement of the Smithsonian.

Castle: I think I’m all done with genies.
Beckett: What? Why the change of heart?
Castle: Well, because of you, of course.
Beckett: Oh, really? So, after eight years, some of my common sense has finally rubbed off on you?
Castle: No. No, no, no, nothing like that. Uhm, I have no need for genies simply because I already have everything I could ever wish for.
Beckett: Right back atcha, handsome. Oh, wait, uhm, so you wouldn’t even wish for a working light saber?
Castle: Nope.
Beckett: Okay. Transporter, like the ones in Star Trek? You would never have to fly again.
Castle: I like flying.
Beckett: Huh. Time machine?
Castle: Only to go back and fall in love with you all over again.
Beckett: Wow, that was a good answer.
Castle: I know, right?

Quotes of the Week: April 3-10

These are my favorite quotes from the past week, not just from shows currently on the air, but also other random things I happen to be watching.

Shameless
Rita: Do I need to call the police?
Ian: Sure. That’s what most people do when they see someone with a mental illness.
Rita: No. You got let go because you lied on your employment application
Ian: Bullshit. What do you think I should have done? Would you have hired me if I had checked that box that said I had a mental illness? What kind of choice is that? Tell the truth, you don’t get the job. Lie, maybe they’ll never find out. What would you do? You’d lie. So would you. So would you. You think because I’m bipolar, an illness that I am managing, by the way, that I can’t do this job where half the people you deal with are mentally ill? Are living on the streets because they can’t get help, or are too sick to know they even need help? You wouldn’t refuse to hire me if I was in a wheelchair, if I had a physical handicap, or HIV. No, because it is illegal to discriminate against someone who is handicapped, and I… I am handicapped. It’s not my fault. I didn’t do anything to bring this on myself. I have a disease. If I show up one day and I’m acting all freaky, then you, or you, or you, Rita, you tell me to go home, and I will go, but don’t tell me I can’t do this job.

Grantchester
Sidney: Maybe my type doesn’t exist.
Geordie: Or is already married?

Quantico
Alex: There’s no such thing as the truth. There’s what you think, what the other person thinks, and then what the world remembers.

The Real O’Neals
Eileen: Look away!
Kenny: What are you doing?
Eileen: I’m eating gay cake on the toilet.

Jimmy: Is this what we’re doing? We’re letting God take out Grandma?

iZombie
Vaughn: That’s Rob Thomas. I mean, there’s something so compelling about the stuff he writes.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Coulson: Gotta admit, this time stuff’s always been a little over my head. Like in Terminator, if John Connor’s alive and able to send his friend back in time to save his mom to make sure he’s born, doesn’t that mean he doesn’t have to?
Lincoln: I, uh, never saw the original Terminator
Coulson: You’re off the team.

Daisy: Wait, what are you gonna do?
Coulson: Find Grant Ward. Yeah. Day got weirder.
