Kevin: Stay occupied?
Dave: Sure. You know, I mean, the busier we are doing stuff the less questions we ask. “Why are we here?” “What are God’s plans?” You know, in the short time that I’ve been in this place, I’ve uh… I’ve realized something. I don’t think there is a plan.

Makes sense you should have it. Lord knows you’ve been eyeing it for years. Honey, I’m not going with you to the cemetery, so don’t get mad, okay? I just can’t watch ’em put you in the ground. I have to remember you my way. So, if it’s alright, I’m just gonna sit here with you for a while. Te amo, Mommy.

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.

Star Trek: Discovery
Captain Lorca: Starfleet didn’t start this war.

Dowager Queen Elizabeth: What will you say to God when you see him? How will you explain all that blood on your hands?

American Gods
Zorya: You believe in nothing, so you have nothing.

Mr. Wednesday: So you didn’t believe ’til you did, and then the world changed because you believed.

Supergirl
Cat: I can imagine that you’re feeling afraid, and feeling like your world is spinning out of control but believe me, you have a power. And right now, you have a job to do. Resist. Resist these invaders with everything you’ve got. They come with empty promises and closed fists. They promise to make our world great again, and yet they know nothing about the people who make this world great. They think they can con us. And if that doesn’t work, what, they’re going to beat us into submission? They have no idea who they’re up against. Aliens and humans, we need to band together, and we need to stand up and fight back. Everyone needs to be a superhero. Everyone needs to get up and say, ‘Not in my house!’ Let’s prove to these thugs that we are strong, and we’re united, and we are not going to be conquered.

Jim: Ah, just answer the question, Joe.
Joe Buck: I was born in Florida. Of course I’ve had a finger in my ass.

12 Monkeys
Jones: My friend’s friend is no more trustworthy than my enemy’s enemy.

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.

Capheus: Many terrible things happen every day. They have happened to me, to my family. It’s why courage is so important. It takes courage to see such terrible things happen and still get up every day, and be able to see what is still beautiful. It takes courage to remember that this is a world where our dreams, like our grandmothers’, do come true.

Doctor Who
Doctor: You’re being cheerful. I’m against cheerful.

Quotes of the Week: April 23-29

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.

The Leftovers
Nora: If we can’t have a sense of humor about you being the Messiah, we’re gonna have a problem.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Daisy: For what it’s worth, I didn’t…I didn’t totally understand him until I met you. So, I guess…I guess there was some good in him all along.

Coulson: Hydra doesn’t think we’re smart enough to know when we’re being fed alternative facts to keep us afraid. To keep them in power. Remember, there are more of us than there are of them and, now that we know the truth, we have a choice to make. We all have the opportunity to be patriots. Will you take a stand? Are you going to hold them accountable?…A wise man once told me that a person can do anything once they realize they’re apart of something bigger. It’s taken me a while to understand that. For years, I was just a face in the crowd. A history teacher who spread Hydra’s lies. They seemed too imposing for any one person to fight. But now, I’m choosing to stand up. To become a part of something bigger. I really do believe that together we can accomplish anything. Because, the truth is, I’m not just a history teacher. My name is Phil Coulson, and I’m an Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.

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.

Black Sails
Billy: There are no two people close enough that something cannot separate them.

Max: I said no to Madam Guthrie’s plan, despite having no alternative, and at the risk of losing the entire endeavor, because I refuse to situate a man in a position where he might interfere one day with my ability to repair things with you. You are the bravest person I have ever known. The truest person I have ever known. And I betrayed you and it sickens me. I am so sorry for working so hard to protect the wrong things. For failing to see that there is nothing important that does not include you.

Jane the Virgin
Xiomara: If you mean, ‘Hands off. I’ve got cobwebs down there’? Then, yeah, that’s the vibe you’ve been throwing.

Barry: Look, I don’t know who you are…obviously someone who’s quick with a knife.

Blindspot
Patterson: You lied to me. You betrayed me. You destroyed me.

Tangled: The Series
Cassandra: Rapunzel, I want to trust you, and I trust that you trust Eugene, but *I* don’t trust Eugene, and if I can’t trust Eugene, I can’t trust you, and you’re just going to have to trust me! …Trust me, that logic tracks.

Grace and Frankie
Frankie: Nobody doesn’t need Kenny Loggins!

Saul: Those people fucked with the wrong bored old man!

8 Musical Moments…

I am very excited for the upcoming Supergirl/The Flash musical crossover, and am especially hoping for a Jeremy Jordan/Jesse L. Martin duet of some kind. In preparation for this episode, I started thinking about some of my other favorite musical television moments.

1. Smash – Don’t Forget Me
There were a lot of great performances in this series, but this one still gives me chills. While I do feel that ultimately Ivy made the better Marilyn, I was rooting for Karen when this finale episode aired and this performance, in particular, really moved me.



2. Buffy the Vampire Slayer – Going Through the Motions??
This is not necessarily my favorite number from this episode, but it is the one that set the tone. A musical demon is making everyone sing their feelings, and sometimes those feelings are things people have been keeping hidden from everyone else. Since Buffy was brought back from the dead, she has been ‘going through the motions’ and she’s finally admitting it out loud.



3. One Tree Hill – Brooklyn
This was really the first show that made music into one of its characters instead of just something to set the mood in certain scenes. Grubbs only stuck around for one season as the bartender at Tric, and was played by Wakey Wakey’s Mike Grubbs. For some reason, his acoustic performance of Brooklyn has always stuck with me. I could not find a clip of the actual scene, but here is another performance of this great song.



4. Eli Stone – Faith
Eli is a San Francisco lawyer and he begins to have visions that encourage him to choose more virtuous cases. In this first episode, he believes that God is speaking to him through George Michael. It was a brilliant, but short-lived, series.
