Quote of the Week - Week of 12-7

A weekly feature highlighting the best quotes on TV as picked by the Spoiler TV team and some lovely people on Twitter this past week. We'd love to hear your picks too so please sound off below the article.

American Horror Story -
1. Maggie: “You're nothing! You could be a pillow, a donut, a sock!” (Sharon Seymour) ~Maggie, trying to impress upon Ima Wiggles how little it means to a drunken Jimmy that they're bumping uglies
2. Stanley: “You should see it when it's angry.” (Sharon Seymour) ~Stanley, after whipping out his jaw-dropping member in front of Dell

Arrow -
1. Ra's al Ghul: "Fight me, boy." Oliver: "You're unarmed." Ra's: "I will take your blades from you once you are through with them." (Bradley Adams)
2. Arrow, referring to the bound criminal: "Merry Christmas." Quentin: "Well, I feel bad. I didn't get you anything." (Bradley Adams)

The Big Bang Theory -
1. Bernadette: "Why did you turn it off?" Sheldon: "Because in the last 10 minutes, Santa came to town, kissed Mommy, and ran grandma over with a reindeer. I had a drunk uncle who did all those things. Nobody sang songs about him." (Dahne)
2. Santa: "Santa thinks dating you may be punishment enough." (Dahne)

Criminal Minds -
1. Rossi: "You and Beth broke up. I got a 20 year old bottle of scotch that you could drown your sorrows in." (Laura Markus)
2. Garcia: "Garcia's the name, the 4-11's the game." (Laura Markus) ~The sass levels on this show clearly have not decreased.

The Fall -
1. Jensen: "Would you call me Father?" Burns: "You've been defrocked, dismissed from the clerical state. You are no longer a priest." Jensen: "Do you know what is sung at a priest's ordination? You are a priest forever like Melchizedek of old. A priest acts on earth as an altar Cristos. That is, as another Christ." Burns: "I know one of your victims believed that he was being touched by the hand of God, while you were molesting him. Because that's what you told him." Burns: "All of those boys were willing participants. Every one of them consented, I never forced myself on anyone. They wanted to learn about sex. Explore their sexual identities. They enjoyed it. If they deny that now it's because they can't face their real natures." Burns: "A child's consent does not count. What you were doing had nothing to do with exploring their sexuality and everything to do with misusing power and abusing trust." Jensen: "I never hurt a boy physically." Burns: "And that's a source of pride, is it? Do you feel no shame, no guilt?" Jensen: "Why should I?" Burns: "Shame for who you are. Guilt at what you've done." Jensen: "I was showing children love, expressing affection." Burns: "By performing oral sex on twelve year olds! How many of those boys still have faith in the Catholic Church, still have faith in God do you think?" (Sandi)
2. Rose: "My wrists are sore. Can you untie me please? Peter. Can you unloosen these please? I'm thirsty. Can you untie me please? Please? Please can you untie me? Please take me home. Please take me home? My babies will be missing me. They're only little, they're young. They need me Peter. They need me Peter. I'm sorry. You were right. I did go to the police. Go to the police. I never will again. If you untie me now, I won't tell anybody what's happened. Please Peter. Please Peter, would you talk to me? I miss what we had. I do. Tom, he's not like you. No-one's like you. Untie me and we can have what we had again. It can be better. I know it's wrong but I'm so turned on. Peter. You fucking disgust me! You piece of shit. You fucking worm! I know it's you. You pervert. You fucking pervert. You dickless piece of shit. You're a monster. You're a monster. You're a monster. You're a fucking aberration! Fuck you! Fuck you! Please take me home! You must've had a terrible childhood to do this to me. I feel sorry for you, I really do. You must've had a terrible childhood. I feel sorry for you. I don't want to die here. Peter please! You want to be noticed. You want to be paid attention to. Make your mark. Fine. Hurt me. Do whatever you want to me. Go ahead. Do your worst. Nothing you can do will ever take away how much I love my husband. How much I love my children. Nothing you can do can make me devalue my life in any way. I will celebrate life. I love and I am loved and nothing that you can do can take that away! Do you know that! DO YOU KNOW THAT?" (Sandi)
~ There may have been no murders this season, but these are easily two of the most disturbing scenes of the whole series in the penultimate episode this week. The defrocked Father Jensen was an utterly despicable and loathsome man, it makes my skin crawl knowing that there are people out there that do think as he does. The Rose monologue was a powerful scene. Spector filming and then editing together her desperation in captivity was heartbreaking to watch. I hope that she gets out of this experience alive and is reunited with her family next week.

The Flash -
1. Cisco: "Then we need to get cracking and stop this speed psycho. That... I wasn't trying to give him a name." (Bradley Adams and Sandi)
2. Caitlin: "I used to play this game in my head. What would I give up for just one more minute with him? My house, my career... The rest of my life? Today I finally got that minute. And I wish I hadn't." (Bradley Adams)
3. Joe: "When you first moved in with us, I thought it was gonna be too much. I'm already a single dad, finances were tough and you were a little boy who just lost his mother. But, man, was I wrong. Within two weeks, you had changed the whole dynamic of the house. Suddenly the house was filled with this light. This energy. I mean, you brightened up everything. You'd seen more darkness than any man will in a lifetime, and you never let it dim your soul. So there I was, thinking that I'm changing your life by taking you in, but the truth is you changed mine. So don't lose that light now, Bar. The world may need The Flash, but I need my Barry Allen." (Sandi)

Grimm -
1. Wu: "Uh, I 'm not sure I understand what average is anymore in this city. Not that I have any opinion that makes sense because you know, I'm ready to go with vampire or wolfman. Do I sound a little stressed? It doesn't matter." (Dahne)
2. Wu: "I need you to answer a few questions for me. I've been thinking about it a lot and this job requires someone of stable mind and body and to be honest, stable is far from what I'm feeling right now." Nick: "Wu, you're good at what you do." Wu: "No, I'm not. I don't know what's real anymore. I don't know what the answer is, but I'm seeing things that I can't explain. All I know is I'm going to leave the best job I've ever had and you're going to let me." Hank: "Wu, this is not the time." Wu: "No Hank, it never is. I think you both know what's going on and for some reason you're keeping me in the dark. I just hope it's a really good reason. So I'm done." (Dahne)

Homeland -
1. Carrie: "I'm trying to kill the motherfucker who's trying to kill us!"

2. Kol: "“I think I'd be a bit testy too if my old ex was about to jump into my new ex. I think that'd be a bit, uh…”
Cami: “Awkward?” Kol: “I was going to say kinky, but…” (Sharon Seymour)

Reign -
1. Mary: "It is you. I remember you." Severin: "I make no apologies. You deserved what I gave you." Conde: "You savage!" Mary "You will be hanged for what you did to me. You will suffer and die, and I will live. In a hundred years, as Queen, I will be remembered, and your name will be forgotten. You'll see that you are erased from history.
And God have mercy on your soul." Severin: "Damn your pity and your king! God will forgive me. He will grant me absolution from the fire." Mary (throwing the oil lantern on him, setting him on fire): "Kill them and let them burn with their sins." (Sandi)
2. Catherine: "Henry? You can't be real." Henry: "Don't I feel real?" Catherine: "Stop. St..stop it. What is happening to me? Why are you here?" Henry: "The Twins found me. You mustn't feel guilty about Claude. You did right by us." Catherine: "No, but.." Henry: "Doesn't this feel right, too? The fun we'll have, Catherine. Say it, say it, say that you want me back. Catherine, please, I need you to say it." Catherine: "I want you back." (Sandi) ~ Haha, I love that they have found a way to get Alan Van Sprang back on the show for a while, and mad Catherine is going to be loads of fun!!

Sons of Anarchy -
1. Jax: "I'm sorry, I did what I know how to do, what Gemma knew what had to be done. The lies caught up to all of us man, I tried to hide from it, make it legit, run away from it. This is who I am, I can't change" (Robert Fruin)
2. Jax "When the time comes, she needs to tell my boys who I really am. I'm not a good man, I'm a criminal" (Robert Fruin)

Supernatural -
1. Dean: "Cas, I need you to promise me something." Cas: "Of course." Dean: "If I do go dark side, you gotta take me out." Cas: "What do you mean?" Dean: "Knife me, spike me, throw me into the freaking sun, whatever. And don't let Sam get in the way because he'll try. I can't go down that road again, man. I can't be that thing again."
2. Crowley: "She was a horrible mother. Did I tell you the time she almost traded me for 3 pigs? Three! I was an attractive child. I could juggle. I was worth 5 pigs at least."

Sons of Anarchy - Jax: "I think the struggle is what I understand best. The one I feel the most is the war of the mind; happens when you try to get right with both family and patch, but fear and guilt crippled me. I realized as I think you did, a good outlaw and a good father cant set inside the same man. I'm sorry J.T it was too late for me. It was already inside me; and Gemma she had plans.
