Quote of the Week - Week of May 14

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 100 -
1. Jaha: "Until 20 minutes ago, our people believed they were safe. They let down their guard. They picked their bunks. They unpacked their bags. They imagined their futures. You try to rip that from them now and, believe me, they will fight." (Milo)
2. Jaha: "Octavia, please. You can stop this. You're Skaikru. You're one of us." Octavia: "I'm one of you? You made me hide under the floor. You floated my mother. I'm not hiding now." (Diana)

Fargo -
1. Varga: "You have a fat wife." Sy: "Excuse me?" Varga: "Which part of what I just said is giving you trouble?" (DarkUFO)
2. Nikki: "You have made me the happiest woman ever. Now let's make a sex tape." (DarkUFO)
3. Nikki: "We got video evidence of Emmit screwing a secretary. It's a fact." Sy: "It never happened!" Nikki: "That doesn't make it any less of a fact." (DarkUFO)

Grey's Anatomy -
1. Meredith: "Don't do that. Don't apologize. If it was Derek, I'd already be gone." (Saloni)
2. Stephanie: "You've changed my life, Dr. Webber. You have. You've taught me how…you've taught me how to take my past and find my path. Thank you. I think I found it." Richard: "Which means?" Stephanie: "Which means, I quit." (Mark)

The Handmaid's Tale -
1. Offred: "This is a brutal place. We're prisoners. If we run, they'll try to kill us or worse. They beat us. They use cattle prods to try to get us to behave. If we're caught reading, they'll cut off a finger. Second offense, just the whole hand. They gouge out our eyes. They maim us in worse ways than you can imagine. They rape me. Every month. Whenever I might be fertile. I didn't choose this. They caught me. I was trying to escape. They took my daughter. So don't be sorry. Okay? Please don't be sorry. Please do something." (Kristie)

The Leftovers -
1. Matt: "The Sudden Departure was you." David: "Uh huh." Matt: "Why?" David: "Because I could." Matt: "You're gonna have to do better than that." David: "Why?" Matt: "Because there has to be a reason." David: "Why?" Matt: "Everything in my life, I've done for a reason." David: "Why?" Matt: "To help people, to guide them, to ease their suffering, even though I suffered myself. I sacrificed my happiness. I let my family abandon me." David: "Why?" Matt: "FOR YOU!!!" David: "Everything you've done, you've done because you thought I was watching, because you thought I was judging. But I wasn't. I'm not. You've never done anything for me. You've done it for yourself." Matt: "Is that why you're killing me?" (Milo)

Madam Secretary -
1. Blake: "Ma'am, I'm bi." Elizabeth: "Yeah. Bye. I'll see you in the morning." Blake: "No, I'm bi, ma'am. Bisexual. I know, you’re probably like, ‘What? Why is he telling me this now? But, uhm, I realize now my right to privacy is different than me choosing to be private and really has more to do with me trusting people with my private business, which is hard for me, because I’ve experienced a lot of biphobia from everyone. I mean straight people, gay people…it’s just, I’ve gotten used to keeping people at arm’s length. I’ve never felt the obligation to satisfy anyone’s curiosity by posting pictures of me with a boyfriend or a girlfriend on social media, like every other millennial. And I always justified that by thinking, 'What does it matter about me?’ I mean, there’s so many more important things going on in the world, who cares about my sexuality? But I realize now it’s m-maybe kind of the opposite. That if I can’t be honest about who I am, then how can I ever have an honest experience with them?” (Laura and Kristie)

Supergirl -
1. Cat to Winn, while under attack: "Okay, well it was nice knowing you." (Donna)
2. Alex: “Supergirl! We’re under attack! I’ve evacuated the DEO!” Supergirl: “Hang on! I’m almost there!” Alex: “There’s no time!” Supergirl: “All right, I’ll meet you outside!” (Donna)
3. Rhea, in a dream: "I'm sorry, who are you?" Cat: “I’m Cat Grant, known on Earth as the Queen of all media!” Rhea: “Oh, well, Cat Grant, I’m Rhea and Earth now has a new Queen.” Cat: “Oh, well, let me just give you a little bit of advice, Rhea, that tiara you have on top of your head, it’s overkill. Real royals, they don’t need to try that hard!” (Donna)
4. President, after morphing: “I suppose I owe you an explanation.” Cat: “At least tell me you’re still a democrat.” (Prpleight)
