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.
Primetime Emmy Awards
Jeffrey Tambor: Thank you for your patience. Thank you for your courage. Thank you for your stories. Thank you for letting us be part of the change.
Frances McDormand: We’re all here because the power of a story well told. Sometimes that’s enough.
Viola Davis: The only thing that separates women of color from everyone else is opportunity.
The Great British Baking Show
Sue: You know, there’s a penalty for taking someone’s crème anglaise. You get taken into ‘custardy.’
Life In Pieces
Tyler: You lost your virginity to a couch?
Bruce: I’m building a bomb to blow down that door. You may assist me, or not, as you wish. But if not, some tea would be nice.
Alfred: Right, well, you’re gonna need ten more sack of that gear, for starters; three more dairy cans, too; and extra timber; a heavy tarpaulin. And I’ll put the kettle on.
Dr. Borden: You’re not helpless. We’re defined by our choices. You just don’t remember yours.
Sara: Sometimes you have to listen to your heart, no matter how selfish it sounds.
Brian: Everybody says you’re going to be President soon.
Senator Morra: I haven’t officially announced that yet, but, between me and you, I don’t even know if I’m gonna run. Do you know how much time we get off in the Senate? It’s shocking, really. I don’t know if I can give it up.
