These are my favorite quotes from the past two weeks, not just from shows currently on the air, but also other random things I happen to be watching.
The Last Ship
CMC Jeter: We’ve taken our fair share of hits these past few weeks. Suffered painful loses. Sometimes it feels like more than we can bear. Yet here we gather. United. Shipmates. Every time we’re called, we answer: “Here I am.” We answer knowing that the world, the survival of our species, depends on our actions here at sea, and fully aware that we answer at our own peril, and still we answer: “Here. I. Am.” I’m not gonna put a silver lining around our pain. Today we grieve. And we remember our fallen and we thank them for their service to us and to mankind. Yes, today we grieve, but tomorrow we do press on. We continue to answer the call: “Here I am.”
Terry: Think of us as the landlords and, if you wanna stay in business, you gotta pay your rent.
Sam: The only reason I ever thought I could be a dad in the first place is because of you. Being with you has changed me. I’m a better man, which means I might actually be able to be the dad I never thought I could be. And I want to show that to you. I want to be that…with you.
Stonebridge: Aborting the mission’s an option.
Scott: No fucking way.
Stonebridge: Ha. Which we discussed maturely and both agreed on.
Scott: Thank you.
Stef: No amount of therapy was going to turn you into a woman.
Sara: There comes a point in your adult life when you realize that you’re really the only one who can decide how you live, and that’s a lot of power, which is good, but it’s also really scary.
Meredith: You remember what Daddy used to say?: “God gave you a big sister instead of a brain.”
The Astronaut Wives Club
Max: No one gets what they want if they don’t ever ask.
Andi: I need you to sign this card, please.
Gail: I don’t sign cards. I don’t wish people things.
Dutch: How much longer, John?
John: Decon gas has to get in deep. You know how many millions of those things are in you?
Dutch: Fine…I swear Lucy’s enjoying this!
Lucy: Decontamination sequence complete.
Lucy: Session two will commence in ten minutes.
Dutch: Oh, come on!
Lucy: It’s not my fault you’re filthy.
Dutch: Watch it!
Two weeks ago, I told you which new summer shows I was planning to watch, so I will now give you the list of returning shows that I enjoy the most.
1. Orange Is The New Black, season 2 will be released June 6th on Netflix. In my opinion, this is the best of Netflix’s original shows. Every one in the main cast is great, but it is the phenomenal supporting cast that really makes up the heart and soul of this show. They are each amazing and essential to the story and I am excited to delve deeper into their individual stories.
2. Suits, season 4 premieres June 11th on USA. The writing on this show is so fun and smart and I can never predict where they are going to take us next. In the season three finale, Mike left Pearson Specter to work for an investment company, so it will be interesting to see how they keep him connected to his former firm and to his mentor.
3. Graceland, season 2 also premieres June 11th on USA. This show started off a little slow for me but definitely picked up steam at the end of the first season, which will hopefully carry into this new season. It has a lot of potential to be great and it offers up some twists and turns that definitely keep things interesting.
4. Rookie Blue, season 5 premieres June 19th on ABC. I have been watching this show since the first season and I just cannot stop. I really enjoy the cast and even some of the ridiculous storylines. Will Andy choose Nick or Sam? I HAVE TO KNOW! Also, now every time I see Eric Johnson I cannot help but think, “Chad, shut your stupid mouth and feed the kids.” FYI: The below video preview is from the Canadian channel that airs the show, so the date is incorrect.
