  • My fav was on Golden Girls when Burt Reynolds asked Sophia which roommate was the slut and they all raised their hand. And I also loved before that when Blanche said “My God, you’re Mister Burt Reynolds.”

  • I laughed pretty hard at the last episode of Grey’s.

    Shane: What about glue?
    Cristina: What ABOUT glue?!

    also Meredith saying throughout the episode: I have a mug like that!

    Shonda really delivered when she said this would be a more fun season.

  • My favorite line comes from General Hospital.

    Dr. Liesel Obrecht tells Cesar Faison: “See if you touch your tongue to anything of mine again.”

    This is after Faison wanted Obrecht to wear her rival Anna Devane’s rubber mask face in his bed!

    • Also from gh…Morgan explains he went through Ava’s purse for a pen to which Ava replies “a pen…I never saw you write…I thought you texted all of your correspondence”. Also loved Diane walking in.on Morgan without a shirt and says “oh morgan still looking for your shirt?”

  • Bummer, another week without a Castle gem like this sparkler: “Well apparently the only way to stop her is locking her up, but according to Miss By-The-Book here, that is unlawful imprisonment”…Castle talking to Ryan and Espo about the prospect of Alexis moving in with Pi.

  • “I hope you don’t think I’m pregnant” by Webber in Grey’s is my line of the week.

  • Rayna: You don’t need to be anybody’s guitar player. You might need to take a minute, figure out who you are without a guitar in your hand, but don’t you ever say you’re done with music.

    Deacon: You either, okay?

    ….and then I cried, and not for the last time in this episode!

    Nashville, “Don’t open that door”.

  • Bones wedding vows definitely the best one.

    Gotta love Deeks, so funny.

    And how did “Richard Castle lives in New York with his wife Senator Beckett and their three children” NOT make it in?
