Quote of the Week - Week of Jan. 15

A weekly feature highlighting the best quotes on TV as picked by the Spoiler TV team. We'd love to hear your picks too so please sound off in the comments below.

The Affair -
1. Alison: "Everyone assumes that life is a given, but you and I know that it's not. You and I both know that breath can end, so we know that life is a gift. You'll miss Dawn, but you'll keep her memory alive. You'll live now for both of you." (Darthlocke)
2. Helen: "I think people see what they want to see in other people." (Darthlocke)
3. Cole: "You guys gonna be OK?" Oscar: "What do you mean?" Cole: "Well, you just called your wife a c***." Oscar: "Yeah, because she makes me deeeeply miserable. But do you mean are we going to split? No, of course not. Jenny's like a, she's like a solid B+, and let's face it, I'm a C. So if she needs to call and yell at me and then hang up, well that's a small price to pay for a beautiful family, you know?" (Darthlocke)

 Blackish -
1. Jack: "Mom just told Dad he needs therapy. It's the beginning of the end." Diane: "Mid-pregnancy divorce? Mom really painted herself into a corner with that one." (Bihnkrir)

The Blacklist -
1. Red: "I'd stand, but I still get aroused when I close a deal." (Geo)
2. Liz: "Mr. Reddington is my CI, which forces me to ignore his crimes, which will no doubt include murdering you if either of you ever tell anyone. On the other hand, I am under no obligation to ignore your crimes. So before you commit any while I'm here, I suggest you all run along." (Dahne)
2. Emma: "When I said the job was hard, I meant working for Reddington." (Dahne)
3. Red: "So Maureen had a choice between remaining silent or doing the right thing. She chose to testify, and while she helped to bring Alexei Lagunov to justice, she also forfeited the rest of her life in doing so. She's on that list." Liz: "Who is she to you?" Red: "Maureen Rowan is Kate's sister-- uh, Mr. Kaplan's sister. I didn't need to find her. I just needed to...make sure no one else can." Liz: "This doesn't excuse what you've done." Red: "No. No, it doesn't." ~~~It was great to hear Red admit that he was wrong to "kill" Mr. Kaplan and gives me hope that this is not the last of her story. (Dahne)
4. Red: "If you wanted out Emma, you should have come to me." Emma: "I didn't think that was an option." (Dahne)

Please don’t leave me, Alec." (Justyna)

Teen Wolf -
1. Sheriff Stilinski: “I have a son. His name is Mieczyslaw Stilinski, but we call him Stiles. I remember. When Stiles was a little kid, he couldn't say his first name. I'm not sure why, it pretty much rolls off the tongue, but the closest he could was mischief. His mother called him that until...I remember when Stiles first got his jeep. It belonged to his mother. She wanted him to have it. The first time he took a spin behind the wheel, he went straight into a ditch. I gave him his first roll of duct tape that day. He was always getting into trouble, but he always had a good heart, always. We're here tonight because my goofball son because he decided to drag Scott, his greatest friend in the world, into the woods to see a dead body.” (Nirat, Marko, Justyna, and Dahne) ~~~And we finally have Stiles' first name! Plus some great back story that the episode really needed after all the heartbreaking moments. (Dahne)
2. Lydia: “You’re going to bite Stiles?” Scott: “To get him through the rift. It’s the only way.” Peter: “Just to clarify, are you planning on biting everyone in the train station?” Scott: “With Stiles back, he’ll be able to help us figure out a plan.” Malia: “He’s good at that.” Peter: “So the plan is to get Stiles to come up with a plan?" (Prpleight and Dahne) ~~~I adore Peter snark. It's one of the reasons I don't mind that they keep bringing him back. (Dahne)
3. Noah: "I took this picture on your last good day. Stiles refused to leave your side." Claudia: "I was sick, but I started getting better." Noah: "You were yourself all day. Stiles had his mom back, and I had my wife back." Claudia: "The medication had started to work." Noah: "Stiles couldn't stop talking about school, all the trouble he'd gotten into. He tried so hard to stay awake, and when he finally fell asleep, it was in your arms." Claudia: "The doctors couldn't explain it. We started making plans, started dreaming again." Noah: "We just sat together and watched each other. We didn't need to talk, and when you finally closed your eyes." Claudia: "I was myself again." Noah: "I knew you were gone." (Justyna and Dahne) ~~~And the tears poured down. Such a heartbreaking moment, made even more wrenching by Linden Ashby's riveting performance. (Dahne)

This Is Us -
1. Rebecca: “I think I'm nervous about you guys meeting me. I don't know how much you can tell from in there, but I am not going to be the perfect mom you have been dreaming about. You guys dream, right? I think so. I'm impatient, and I'm stubborn, and uh, stole an Abba-Zabba bar from the grocery store in fourth grade, and I'm terrified that I'm going to make a hundred wrong decisions to keep you guys from living the perfect lives that you deserve, but I will protect you fiercely, and I will always sing to you when you can't sleep, and I will always be excited to hear you laugh. I bet you guys are gonna have wildly different laughs, huh? I love you guys so much and I haven't even met you yet. It's crazy. So I guess what I'm trying to say, is um, you are gonna have to take the good with the bad when it comes to me. So now that you know all this, are you still excited to come join us, huh? I'll take that as a yes.” (Nirat, Marko, and Dahne)
2. Rebecca: “I've been acting out lately. I've been terrible to your dad who is just perfect. He is just perfect. Oh my God, you guys are going to freak out when you see how awesome your dad is. Seriously, you are gonna be huge fans.” (NIrat and Marko)
3. Jack: "I just... keep thinking about my wife and how I just wanna get home to her, hang out with her, make sure she's okay which is crazy because she's at her absolute worst right now, I mean, like, Exorcist-level bad.
