Masters of Sex -
1. Bill: "In 1687, Sir Isaac Newton discovered what was then known as the law of universal gravitation - gravity. Take two objects, the larger object exerts an attractive force on the smaller object, pulling it towards itself, as it were. An apple falls from the tree. The Earth, by far the more massive object, pulls the apple to the ground. Simple enough, only Newton's theory left scientists a rather puzzling problem. To paraphrase you, Dr Farborough, where is the gravity? It's not something you can see or touch. It's not something you can put under microscopes or examine from a telescope. Well, 230 years after Newton, a German patent clerk in Switzerland finally realized that scientists had been asking the wrong question all along. They would never find an object in all the immensity of space called gravity, because, in point of fact, gravity is nothing but the shape of space itself. That clerk, Einstein, posited that the apple does no fall to the ground because the Earth exerts some mysterious kind of force upon it; the apple falls to the ground because it is following the lines and grooves that gravity has carved into space. And when we talk about sex, we do not talk about love, Dr. Farborough, because love cannot be rendered into columns and graphs as it would be the same as blood pressure and heart rate. Love is not a force exerted by one body onto another; it is the very fabric of those bodies. Love is that which carves the lines and grooves. The curvature of our desire." (Jimmy Ryan)

2. Mr. Creem: "Not an AK-47 or a pass to get you out of the city on a container ship. You want a book?" ~Mr. Creem gets an odd visit from an old white man in HIS part of town. The visit doesn't get anywhere near normal." (Purpleight)

Suits -
1. Harvey: "Easy tiger, I'm not here to take your bagel. I'm here to give you this." Mike: "You know a guy in custom engraving?" Harvey: "I know a guy in everything." Mike: "Well, thanks, Harvey, but you didn't have to do that." Harvey: "Come on, it's not every day you make name partner. And I've never known anyone who deserves it as much as you." Mike: "Except for you." Harvey: "Well, that goes without saying." Mike: "So, why'd you say it?" Harvey: "Because it had to be said." (Laura Markus)
2. Harvey: "Seriously Mike, you deserve this. I just wish I could have been the one to make it happen." [...] "An army couldn't have kept me away from your partnership vote." Mike: "Come on, Harvey, it's just a formality. They've already given me the title." Harvey: "It may just be a formality, but that meeting is not happening without my vote on the record." (Laura Markus)
3. Harvey: "Wanting to shut Louis up isn't being ruled by emotions, it's being human." (Laura Markus)

Teen Wolf -

Mama McCall: "What about our kids? They constantly deal with things outside the law." Sheriff: "But not above the law." ~ This week Scott's mother Melissa called the Sheriff to report a body in her kitchen off the books, except the Sheriff refused to keep it off the books. (Prpleight and Dahne)
2. Sheriff: "This your official statement?" Mama McCall: "Something wrong?" Sheriff: "The part about the body in your kitchen works fine.

I forgot about the Dread Doctors." ~ Hell hath no fury like Melissa McCall pissed off! (Prpleight and Dahne)
