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.

Barry: How did you do that?
Kara: I’m Supergirl.
Barry: You’re *who* now?

Quotes of the Week: March 20-26

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.

Daredevil
Frank: People that can hurt you, the ones that can really hurt you, are the ones that are close enough to do it. People that get inside you and… and… and tear you apart, and make you feel like you’re never gonna recover. Shit. I’d-I-I would chop my arm off right here, in this restaurant, just to feel that one more time for my wife. My old lady, she didn’t just break my heart. She… she’d rip it out, she’d tear it apart, she’d step on that shit, feed it to a dog. I mean, she was ruthless. She brought the pain. But she’ll never hurt me again. You see, I’ll never feel that. You sit here and you’re all confused about this thing, but you have it. You have everything. So, hold on to it. Use two hands and never let go. You got it?

Father Lawrence: We might not always understand it, but God has a plan.
Lucifer: Yes, I know. But, why does everybody always think it’s a *good* plan?

Lost Girl
Bo: It’s the end of an era.

Kensi: Who needs weapons when you’ve got…mascara and heels?

Bo: I promise you will not grow up a lost girl.

Quotes of the Week: January 31-February 6

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.

Galavant
Galavant: I didn’t tell you to die in a brown fart. The truth is, all I’ve wanted is to come back to you. You’re the love of my life. And if we survive this, I want to marry you. And I want to live by the sea…
Isabella: You had me at “brown fart.”

Richard: What? I’m singing a duet with my inner child.

Barry and Caitlin: Felicity Smoak.

New Girl
Schmidt: We’ve always done everything together. I’m just worried that we’re gonna drift apart. You know, I’m gonna get married and have kids, and you’re gonna be wandering around the grocery store holding a bottle of scotch and an ear of corn.

Nick: If I can’t have a kid with a woman, maybe I’ll have one with my cousin.

8 Characters to the Rescue…

Author Brenda Hiatt, posted this question on Facebook: “You’ve been kidnapped. You can call on the characters from one television show to make a rescue attempt. Which show do you pick?” My pick would be Strike Back. Then I started thinking about which individual characters from different shows I would want to come save me. So, here is that list.

1. Veronica Mars – Veronica Mars
She is a private detective that no one ever suspects is actually a private detective. She always has her taser with her and she will not stop until she has the problem figured out. She will even work with people she does not like in order to get the answers she is looking for.



2. Sgt. Michael Stonebridge – Strike Back
It was hard to choose between Strike Back’s Michael and Damien but, ultimately, I think Michael is the more level-headed one…plus, he has a sexy British accent. He is also a Royal Marine who works for an elite special operations unit and always has that sharp military focus.



3. The Doctor – Doctor Who
If you are kidnapped by aliens, you would definitely want his help. How else is the team going to get to the ship or planet where you are being held? I also always thought Veronica would make a good companion for him.



4. Brian Finch – Limitless
On NZT, he is basically the smartest person on the planet. He will be able to see clues that other people miss. He might clash with the Doctor a bit, but I think that they would ultimately be interested in working with each other.

The Good Wife
Zack: Here we go. Merrill. What delicacy do we eat here?
Josh: Loose meat sandwiches.
Zack: Again?
Josh: Don’t let anyone hear you say that. Iowans have no sense of humor about their loose meat sandwiches.

Downton Abbey
Mr. Drewe: We made a plan, Lady Edith and I, but we forgot about emotion, and emotion’s what can trip you up every time.

The Royals
Liam: You hid a handgun in my bedroom?!
Jasper: Clearly.
Liam: Why don’t you stash one under my bed next time?!
Jasper: I did.

James: You had the chance to take something valuable. You passed it up for something priceless.

Fred: What a wonderful cheese store. They had so many options. That’s good cuz I love cheese. All kinds of cheese. Orange cheese. Pizza cheese. I love all parts of pizzas, especially the dough. Once I asked for a ball of dough and they gave it to me and I took the dough to a park and ate it.

iZombie
Ravi: Yes, Olivia, there is a Santa Claus brain

Elementary
Sherlock: I can’t accept an alibi from anyone with that particular hairstyle.

Once Upon a Time
Zelina: Let’s just say, when the Dark One offers you onion rings, don’t eat them!

Regina: There’s a difference between not knowing something and not *wanting* to admit it.

Supergirl
Cat: I put her in that helicopter. If anyone should feel guilty, it’s me. Not that I do.

Cat: The world is full of so much noise and snark. Much of it we generate. Today, why don’t we elevate this city’s level of discourse instead with a photo essay of all the people who spent their holidays volunteering at soup kitchens and shelters. Let’s see if we can’t bring some attention to those organizations.
Kara: I think that’s a great idea.
Cat: Well, of course you do. I pitched it. Thanksgiving sells. Liberals love to feel guilty, so let’s just squeeze as much juice out of those turkeys as we can.

Jane the Virgin
Magda: I think the Russian red-haired lady in the kitchen is trying to poison me.

Narrator: For those of you keeping track at home, that’s now three children for Rafael and zero sex.

Blindspot
You guys are about as funny as I thought you’d be.

Arrow
Oliver: The world is a much more complicated place than most people are comfortable believing.

You’re the Worst
Lexie: Conventional and scary, hell yeah. But the death of fun? Not necessarily! To be a slave to an idea of coolness is why some of your friends never grow and in the end are actually less themselves and, counter-intuitively, live less authentic lives than the buyers-in.
