Legends of Tomorrow

Quotes of the Week: November 20-December 3

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.

Supergirl
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.

Conviction
Hayes: Noble intentions don’t make it okay to withhold information or obscure the truth.

Timeless
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.
Rufus: Yeah.
Wyatt: What the hell? I’m in.
Lucy: Me too.
Rufus: Tough call for me. I was really hoping to be sold into slavery.

The Flash
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.

New Girl
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.
Olivia: Oh.
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.

No Tomorrow
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.

8 Things For Which I Am Thankful…

These are the mostly television related things that I am most thankful for this year. It has been another year of ups and downs and this is what helps get me through it all.

1. No Tomorrow
I wrote an entire post about why I think you should be watching this awesome new CW show, but mostly it just makes me laugh a lot. It is genuine and uplifting, and it is the show that I currently look forward to the most each week. I have actually decided that I am most like Kareema, only she says things out loud and I just think them, and I don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing. Either way, it has been a great escape these last few months, and I appreciate that more than ever.



2. Lin-Manuel Miranda
Not only do I pretty much have the Hamilton Soundtrack, the Hamilton Mixtape, and the Moana Soundtrack all on repeat right now, but following Lin-Manuel on social media is the best decision I have ever made. Every day, he posts a ‘good morning’ and a ‘good night’ message, and they are always hopeful and encouraging. He is genuine, thoughtful, and supportive, and I just appreciate him. This awesome song from Moana was written by Miranda and sung by Dwayne Johnson:



3. Alfred James Band
When I lived in Philadelphia, I became friends with the Alfred James Band, and even though we have lost touch a bit since I moved to Texas, I was ridiculously excited when they released their second album recently. I had missed hearing these songs, and the album was everything I hoped it would be. I was especially surprised and touched after learning that one of the songs was written for me, and it reminded me that no matter where you go in life, a part of everyone you’ve ever met stays with you forever. You can listen to and download ‘Forgotten,’ as well as the rest of the album here:

4. Gilmore Girls
I probably will not have a chance to watch all four parts of the revival this weekend, but I am so excited!! A part of me is actually a little sad about it, only because I know that once I watch them, then it’s really over. The four words will have been spoken, and there will be no more. But I know that it will be amazing to be back in Stars Hollow with these characters and, for that, I am grateful.

Quotes of the Week: November 6-12

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.

Shameless
Debbie: Different family. Same fucking Frank.

Fiona: Gallaghers are a lot of things, but no one says we back down from a challenge.

Supergirl
Winn: Guys like us, we are here to give people information. Right? To fight with knowledge. There is no shame in that, man.

Lena: You just missed Supergirl.
Kara: Did I? Golly.

Jane the Virgin
Rogelio: (to Rafael) It is true. You are extremely handsome. I never noticed before.

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?

Cat: All four of you standing there, doing nothing. You look like the attractive, yet non-threatening, racially diverse cast of a CW show.

Kara: You mean, like, a race?
Barry: Yeah, I guess. Think you can keep up, Girl of Steel?
Kara: Oh, just you watch, Scarlet Speedster.

Jane the Virgin
Narrator: As much as Jane hated to admit it, she knew the snarky wallpaper had a point.

Xiomara: Do you have a minute to chat…alone?
Rogelio: I keep *no* secrets from Charo.

Blindspot
Jane: This dog can really smell bombs?
Reade: Well, if it can’t, then it’s one terrible bomb-sniffing dog.

Quotes of the Week: February 28-March 5

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.

The Magicians
Mayakovsky: Why are you both so determined to be so fucking bland?

Lucifer
Linda: God cast you out because He needed you to do the most difficult of jobs. It was a gift.
Lucifer: Gift? He shunned me. He vilified me. He made me a torturer! Can you even begin to fathom what it was like? Eons spent providing a place for dead mortals to punish themselves? I mean, why do they blame me for all their little failings? As if I’d spent my days sitting on their shoulder, forcing them to commit acts they’d otherwise find repulsive. “Oh, the Devil made me do it!” I have never made any one of them do anything. Never.
Linda: What happened to you in unfair.
Lucifer: Unfair? This is unjust! For all eternity, my name will be invoked to represent all their depravity. That is the gift that my Father gave me!

Lost Girl

New Girl
Schmidt: Don’t tell me what to do! I’m her fiancĂ©, not some schnook off the street eating a peanut butter cookie!

Reagan: I hope that the Chicago Cubs win the World Series while you’re in a coma
Nick: That’s one of the meanest things anybody has ever said to me.

Agent Carter
Howard: Jarvis, you just hit a woman with my car!
Jarvis: I know, sir.
Howard: She’s a 2-time Oscar nominee!
Jarvis: Miss Frost is quite resilient. She’s fine. Trust me.

Howard: If she weren’t a homicidal maniac, I’d be in love.

Howard: What am I doing wrong, Jarvis?
Jarvis: We are standing before an incomprehensible rip in the fabric of our world. Use a 7-iron.

Lady Mary: Yes, they attract. But do they live happily ever after?

Beckett: Be charming, but not too charming.

Mulder: Cutler’s eye-line is trained above the door, about Tim Duncan height. We eliminate any 76ers, ’cause those guy can’t find the rim.

Scully: I don’t care about the big questions right now, Mulder. I just want one more chance to ask my mom a few little ones.

Jane the Virgin
Narrator: This is making me feel a little pervy.

New Girl
Reagan: I think he’s having a seizure.
Cece: No, no. It’s just that when he has to process a lot of emotions, sometimes he likes to do Nick Cannon’s solo from Drumline.

Schmidt: Everybody knows that there is a window of time before any wedding where some amazing person comes out of the woodwork and tries to steal a bride. It’s the plot of every romantic comedy. I’m the Bridgette Wilson-Sampras here!

Schmidt: Oh, I suppose you’re both too “cool’ to have seen THE WEDDING PLANNER!

Winston: I’m sorry that I basically let you drown in the shower. And then called you a soggy little bitch.

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.

Shameless
Sean: I’m a naturally helpful person.
Fiona: Must be tiring.
Sean: It is *utterly* exhausting.

Downton Abbey
Violet: When we unleash the dogs of war, we must go where they take us!

Violet: Indeed. It is a quality I share with Marlborough, Wellington, and my late mother. I was trained in a hard school, and I *fight* accordingly.

Supergirl
Kara: Except for the fact that she talks like Cookie Monster, she is exactly like me.

Jane the Virgin
Lina: Look natural. Sexy natural.

The Magicians
Quentin: I don’t know what happened.
Eliot: You found out who you are. She found out who she’s not. Life.

The Flash
Cisco: Who’s the best hacker in the world, people?
Barry and Caitlin: Felicity Smoak.
Cisco: What is wrong with you two? That’s not friendship.

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.

Quotes of the Week: January 24-30

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
Wormwood: Oh, Gareth, you’re smiling. Sorry, could you stop it? I just find it deeply unsettling.

Richard: I just can’t believe he’s dead.
Roberta: Does seem awfully early in the season for something like this.
Sid: Could he be mostly dead? But not all dead, ’cause mostly dead is slightly alive?
Neo: Yeah, that’s not a thing.

Downton Abbey
Edith: I suppose Cousin Isabelle is entitled to put up an argument.

Violet: I haven’t been in the kitchens in at least twenty years.
Isabelle: Have you got your passport?

Supergirl
Kara: If you hate bigots more than aliens, then, why are you giving Senator Crane so much attention? She’s horrible.
Cat: Because, Kira, while bigots will always take the gold on the medal podium of my contempt, they make excellent click-bait. Also, the more they talk the more they sabotage themselves. It’s a magical implosion happening right before our very eyes.

Alex: There’s no shame in surviving.

Cat: I never got to put a picture that you’d drawn on the fridge. I never got to tell you stories. And I never got to teach you how not to be afraid of the world. And I never got to tell you how amazing I think you are. I never got to be your mom, but I am your biggest fan.

Jane the Virgin
Alba: Poor Manuel, living in the closet for so long. I’m glad he found his authentic life. I have a gay friend at church, and he explained everything to me.

Telenovela
James: I know I come on strong, okay? I’m just an all-in kinda guy. I’m all-in on love. I’m all-in on work. I’m all-in on Law & Order, I’ll tell you that much. Man, I have seen every single episode, including all the spin-offs. That’s like a thousand hours of television! Oh my good God, maybe I do go a little overboard.
