You know, it’s funny. People keep asking, “What do you need? What do you need?” I need for you to not be gone. Here, honey, I want you to have something. It was my mother’s. 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.

Quotes of the Week: July 23-August 5

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.

But my mum, Siobhan, this woman, come on, this woman… This woman, she chose us as her own. We are who we are because she carried two little London urchins on her wings to Canada. Watching her raise my sister, watching my sister raise her own daughter, finding my biological sister… it’s quite mad. It’s taught me that we are all… mysterious works of chance. Of choice. Of nature versus nurture. So, to my galaxy of women, thank you for the nurture.

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.

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.

This Is Us
Olivia: How does it feel to be dying?

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.

Quotes of the Week: October 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.

Supergirl
J‘onn: People in this world don’t have much tolerance for others who look different. I say that as an alien, and as someone who’s worn the face of a black man for fifteen years.

Lucifer
Lucifer: Welcome to Devil Time.
Chloe: What are you doing?
Lucifer: Trying out my new catch phrase.
Dan: “Welcome to Devil Time”? What the hell does that mean?
Lucifer: She knows what it means.
Jamie: I have no idea what that means.

Chloe: A couple days ago, I was in a really bad car accident. And I’ve spent the last few days trying to convince everybody that cares about me that it wasn’t a big deal. The truth is, I’m terrified. I’m scared of how it can all just end, with no rhyme or reason. And what I want to do right now is just go home and read a bedtime story to my daughter. But, you know, that’s not up to me either. We can’t control what happens to us, only how it affects us and the choices we make.

Timeless
Ian Fleming: Rufus, there are allies, contacts, and women, but never trust. Only the mission.

Conviction
Hayes: Honestly, Dan, I hope your audience sees through this charade, because this here – Me in these pearls and this stupid suit – this is what privilege looks like.
Dan: Can you elaborate on that?
Hayes: The fact that you’re here talking to me – this is the problem. Rich, famous, powerful people get away with murder all the time, sometimes literally. Coke in the purse, insider trading, sexual assault – you name it. I screw up. Because of my last name, the cops call the DA. He calls my mom. Strings are pulled. I’m out on the street in an hour with a new job – a job I initially had no interest in. Funny thing is, I like causing trouble, busting the system, exposing wrongful convictions. Kind of gets me off. So, really, it worked for me, again. Now, hopefully, it’s also a bonus to people like Penny Price – a mom accused of killing her own son – to have me on their side. Because I may be a hot mess, but I’m a hot mess with privilege. And since Penny Price has none, the least I can do is lend her some of mine.

The West Wing
Senator Marino: It seems to me that more and more we’ve come to expect less and less from each other.

Arrow
Diggle: You broke me out of prison.
Lyla: For better or worse, Johnny.
Diggle: I told you I wanted to stay.
Lyla: And I figured, if you wanted to make your own decisions then you wouldn’t have gotten married.

Evelyn: Things have really fallen apart without Oliver.
Oliver: It’s a good thing I’m back then.
Rory: Was he waiting for an entrance line?
Curtis: No. He’s just that cool.
