Quote of the Week - Week of April 9

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.

Agents of SHIELD -
1. Jemma: "I'm fresh out of sympathy for people who kidnap my friends and replace them with killer androids." (Donna)
2. Coulson: "Got to say, the whole Rebel Alliance aesthetic is really working for me." Mace: "I'll take that as a compliment. I think." (Milo)

The Americans -
1. Paige: "What's it like there? Is everybody equal?" Elizabeth: "We have our problems." Paige: "You haven't been there in a long time." Elizabeth: "That's what your dad says." (DarkUFO)
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)
5. Philip: "I'll do my job. I've always done it." Elizabeth: "I know." (Milo)

Bates Motel -
1. Chick: "The artificiality of a scripted drama doesn't hold a candle to true crime." (DarkUFO)
2. Dylan: "He's not a bad person. He's not a criminal. He's crazy." (DarkUFO)
3. Sheriff Greene: "Consider cooperating with us. I can't guarantee it'll feel good, but it's the right thing to do." Dylan: "Good night, Sheriff." (DarkUFO)
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)

Better Call Saul -
1. Captain Bauer to Jimmy McGill: "The Wheel is gonna turn...it always does." (Shirleena)
2. Kim: "Are you mad?" Jimmy: "I'm not mad. I'm just thinking about things. For 10 minutes today Chuck didn't hate me. I forgot what that felt like." (Milo)

The Big Bang Theory -

2. Colin Sweeney: "They're out to get me, the same way they did with Rodney King. We have a lot in common, he and I. Can't we all just get along?" (DarthLocke)
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)
