The Americans -

2. Ben: "You're softer today." Elizabeth: "What am I normally, crusty?" (DarkUFO)
3. Gabriel: "Can you hold on? I have to talk to you. I'm going home." Elizabeth: "What? Did something happen?" Gabriel: "No. It's just time." Philip: "Gabriel, if it's me, I know I've been hard to deal with." Gabriel: "No, it's not you. I'm just ready to go home. You don't need me anymore. You have each other. But Philip, as long as you're here, the Centre is going to continue to be concerned about you. Once they start worrying about somebody, they never stop. And now, the lab. And to be honest, I'm worried. You've seen too much. You've done too much. I'll miss you terribly." (DarthLocke)
4. Philip: "My own parents. I don't know anything about them at all." (DarthLocke)

4. Chick: "You want me to say that he's crazy. I wouldn't say that he's crazy." Ramero: "Oh, really? I would." Chick: "Okay. Maybe the world tosses that word around too much. He killed his mother and he loved her. So I'm gathering that it was probably very hard for you to get here and that you're feelin' a little miffed that Norman's not home." Chick: "Where is he?" Ramero: "Uh so my sources tell me that last night he confessed to murder. He's in jail. So what the hell are you doin' here?" Chick: "I'm dancing with newborn angels, trying to catch a muse." Ramero: "Why don't you say it like a normal person?" Chick: "I'm writing a book! About what? Look, I know. It sounds bad! I wrestled with my own feelings of exploitation, but after I got to know them, Norman and Norma and this beautiful, haunted old house, I felt an obligation to record the events that have happened here." Ramero: "Son of a b***. If you know what Norman's done, you're an accessory to murder." Chick: "Says the escaped convict." Ramero: "So this is where he keeps them, huh?" Chick: "That's a little obvious. Norman's more romantic than that." Ramero: "Oh, yeah? Then why are you sitting here?" Chick: "Cause I wanted to feel what she felt." Ramero: "What are you talkin' about?" Chick: "To be adored like a queen. He built this place for her, like a mausoleum." (DarthLocke)

1. Captain Bauer to Jimmy McGill: "The Wheel is gonna turn...it always does." (Shirleena)

3. Madeline Starkey: "The mind has an odd way of turning wishful thinking into actual memories." (DarthLocke)



Once Upon a Time -
1. The Author to Regina: "I'm guessing the Hamilton tickets are a no?" (Regina shakes her head no.) Author: "I guess no one's magic is that powerful." (Donna)
2. Regina, after the Author asks for a sports car for a reward: "How about I drive the sports car of your choice over your pumpkin head until it squishes like an apple?" (Donna)





Underground -
1. Harriet Tubman: "I was spending all my time knowing things instead of believing them. That’s the first step to truly being free. When you can see past all the things that you know and believe in something better." (Prpleight)

He will never allow himself to be defeated by you or I. Not because we bribed him, not because Eleanor Guthrie told him so. He simply will not allow it to happen.

3. Syd: “I was looking for the man I loved or did I just love the idea of him, the face he showed me?” (Nirat and Milo)
4. Oliver: "There's good news and there's bad news. The bad news is, it's not the drug. You're here, in the astral plane. You went too far in the make believe and got lost in your mind, consciousness, and now you're trapped in this, no place. Where every day is the same, where you can imagine yourself a kingdom. but nothing is ever real." David: "And what's the good news?" Oliver: "I'm not alone anymore." (Milo)

Harvey: "You don't know that." Mike: "Yes, I do and if you don't get that, then she's got you right where she wants you." Harvey: "So you're just gonna sit there tomorrow and let her take everything away from you?" Mike: "She's not taking anything away. She's keeping things exactly the way they are." Harvey: "You mean working for that clinic." Mike: "Harvey, I'm lucky to still have a job at that clinic. So tomorrow morning, I'm gonna go in there with my head held high. But what I'm not gonna do is let her strip you of everything that you are." (Laura)



Supergirl -
1. Maggie: "I'm here. You can tell me anything. What happened with your Dad?" (Donna) ~ A teary eyed Alex looked up, uttered a heavy sigh, then a shuddered sob, and then a complete emotional collapse into Maggie's arms with heart rending sobs. Without a single word Alex told Maggie how completely devastated she was by her father's betrayal. Chyler's Leigh's face spoke volumes!

Agents of SHIELD -
1. Phil: "All of these things you've done, all of the energy you spent, the hatred...and you know what the funny thing about it is? I have no idea who the hell you are. I've been on hundred of missions in my time. This one you're upset about, I was sent to retrieve an object and if I'm being honest, I don't even remember what it was. As far as I'm concerned, you're just another red shirt like so many others who tried unsuccessfully to stop me from saving the world 'cause that's what I do.
