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