  • Remember when the X-Factor fired Cole because they were worried people wouldn’t understand her because of her accent?

    • She’s so charming and gorgeous too. It’s baffling. I think she’d have been a sleeper hit on the judging panel. Once America got to know Cheryl, they’d have loved her. She did a great job in the UK. The minute Simon fired her (and let’s make no mistake, that was his decision) he introduced bad mojo into that panel.

      • I thought she did fine in the one or two episodes she was on. She certainly sounded much better and more coherent than Paulina has.

    • I was thinking the same thing myself. The opening was probably better with Sam calling Kensi out for wearing the same shirt.

      • I don’t know why but I loved the line.

  • Paulina Rubio and, worse, poor Josh Levi AND Carlito Olivero will never live to see the end of it.

  • For the “Castle” quote, I’m sure you meant “Alexis (Molly Quinn), arriving at the loft to find (exhausted!) Rick and KATE tending to an infant”. :)

  • Nothing from Sleepy Hollow this week? Every ep is quotable!

    • I agree, Sleepy Hollow has hilarious lines every week. This week my favorite was when Ichabod had the bag from McDonalds and ate a french fry and said “Despite this establishments nomenclature this resembles no Scottish meal I’ve ever eaten. These are from the Austrian Netherlands for one thing, and dreadfully prepared.” ha ha!! I absolutely love Sleepy Hollow!

  • That POI quote was a fave of mine. After Root’s guns-akimbo stunt, we were all thinking it, and the fact that it was Shaw who said it is the icing on the cake.

    BTW, is it just me, or does it look like Shaw has a Fu Manchu mustache in that screengrab?

  • “How long have I been gone?”! Priceless:)

  • The HIMYM should say “hearty” not “hardy”. It’s referencing a hearty meal.

  • How is Mom’s quote about Stevia by Matt Jones’ character not included? It was such an awesome reference to Breaking Bad’s final episode!!!

  • The Mindy quote made me snort laugh. I’m going to assume the cocaine salesman reference was to the old, 80s show Miami Vice, and not the newer, crappier movie, Miami Vice..

  • Definitely found Castle’s “The Good, the bad and the baby” the most quotable episode of the week:
    – Rick: “When we do [the church wedding], let’s not do the dead body in the middle of the aisle”
    – Lanie: “He’s about three months and he’s hungry, because he keeps going after the girls.” Rick: “Who can blame him?”…
    – Rick: “I have an RHD in child care — Ruggedly Handsome Dad”
    – Kate: “That’s evidence — watch those balls.” Rick: “Nah, not touching it”….
