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. I thought that, with the holiday, I would not have as many. Clearly, I was wrong.
Kara: If I leave you here, Alex will never forgive me.
Jeremiah: Kara, if you die here, there will be no one to forgive.
Kara: You can still be scared while being brave.
Jane the Virgin
Jane: I’m gonna hug you, okay? Just stand still.
Hayes: Noble intentions don’t make it okay to withhold information or obscure the truth.
Rufus: What’s the point of having a time machine if you can’t fix your regrets?
Lucy: So what are our options? We stay here and fight off the French or die of smallpox eventually?
Rufus: Pretty much.
Wyatt: Likely death either way.
Wyatt: What the hell? I’m in.
Lucy: Me too.
Rufus: Tough call for me. I was really hoping to be sold into slavery.
Caitlin: Some things you break can’t be put back together.
H.R.: Barry’s real super power isn’t speed, it’s hope.
Barry: I told you I couldn’t do this without you.
Iris: And you’ll never have to.
Joe: Every time I think you’ve run out of ways to show me you’re a hero, you show me another one.
Nick: Look at that, Mom, I’m gonna be a hero.
Schmidt: Why are you looking up? Your mother is still alive.
Nick: I’m looking at Chicago.
Schmidt: You think Chicago is up?
Nick: It’s North.
Schmidt: I know who you are and I still love you.
This Is Us
Olivia: How does it feel to be dying?
William: It feels… like all these beautiful pieces of life are flying around me and… I’m trying to catch them. When my granddaughter falls asleep in my lap, I try to catch the feeling of her breathing against me. And when I make my son laugh, I try to catch the sound of him laughing. How it rolls up from his chest. But the pieces are moving faster now, and I can’t catch them all. I can feel them slipping through my fingertips. And soon, where there used to be my granddaughter breathing and my son laughing, there will be… nothing.
William: I know it feels like you have all the time in the world. But you don’t. So, stop playing it so cool. Catch the moments of your life. Catch them while you’re young and quick. Because sooner than you know it, you’ll be old and slow. And there’ll be no more of them to catch. And when a nice boy who adores you offers you pie, say thank you.
Kareema: I can’t believe you’re doing work that isn’t actual work just to try to get a job and have more work.
Mary Anne: I couldn’t decide if I should drink or take a bath, so I’m kinda doin’ both.
