Sherlock

Quotes of the Week: December 18-January 7

These are my favorite quotes from the past few weeks, mostly from shows currently on the air, but also other random things I happen to be watching.

Shameless
Frank: It’s like a family heirloom, only drugs!

Frank: Every time I look at one of you kid’s faces, I see her face looking back at me – smiling, laughing. She was strong. And you’re strong. And she was brave, and you’re brave. I know you didn’t think much of her, but…she loved you. And you wouldn’t be who you are, and I wouldn’t be who I am, if she hadn’t come into our lives. So, hate her if you want…but she’s in you, and that’s a good thing.

The Royals
Eleanor: Don’t ever doubt your words again. They’re perfect. Just believe in them.

No Tomorrow
Evie: You’ve convinced yourself the past doesn’t matter because you’re too afraid to confront it.

Vikings
Ragnar: Everyone will always underestimate you. You must make them pay for it.

Crazyhead
Raquel: Do demons like figure skating? Did you really just ask me that?
Amy: I’m not familiar with their leisure pursuits.

Suzanne: Just because I died doesn’t mean we can’t snuggle.

Sense8
Wolfgang: Happy fuckin’ New Year.

Quotes of the Week: January 1-9

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.

Sherlock
Mycroft: Sherlock, listen to me.
Sherlock: Nope. It only encourages you.

Shameless
Fiona: You’re not gonna get fired for lettin’ us borrow an old lady, are ya?

Veronica: Cause you keep forgettin’ to buy us a boat.
Kevin: Oh, that’s right.

Galavant
The Queen: Off with his shirt!

Gareth: I like meat with extra meat.

Allanon: Don’t move! Don’t speak! Let your eyes bear witness!

Wil: So, I’m supposed to use elfstones I don’t have to protect a princess who doesn’t want to be found from a Demon horde bent on laying waste to the world. And even if I succeed, which is entirely doubtful, my life could still be doomed because magic will have fried my brain.

Heroes Reborn
Farah: There’s some sword-wielding Japanese girl handling the clones all by herself.

8 Shows I Watch With My Mom…

My mother and I do not tend to watch a lot of the same shows, so it is nice when we find one that we can enjoy together. Sometimes she finds it first and introduces it to me and sometimes it happens the other way around. In honor of Mother’s Day on Sunday, these are the ones we have in common.

1. NCIS – My mom started watching this first and I did not think that I would like it because I tend to avoid procedural shows. She would watch the re-runs on USA and eventually I got into it as well. We prefer the earlier episodes and, while she still watches, I actually gave up in the middle of last season.

2. Gilmore Girls – I found this show in college and when I moved home after I graduated (don’t judge!), I would watch it on ABC Family and she would often watch with me. I am not sure my mom has seen every episode, but she still refers to Lauren Graham as Lorelei.

3. Downton Abbey – This is another one that my mom actually started watching first. She watches a lot of random British shows, so I figured it was another one like As Time Goes By or Rosemary & Thyme and did not initially watch the first season. However, it started to get a lot of good buzz from TV journalists that I trust, so I finally gave it a chance. We love Maggie Smith and her awesome one-liners.

4. Elementary – I started watching this because I like Jonny Lee Miller and then recommended it to my mom. She says that it is on too late for her to stay up and watch it (being on the East Coast) and usually watches OnDemand, so she is often an episode or two behind me, but we enjoy the relationship between Sherlock and Joan.
