  • My favorite line was Finona’s on AHS about Nan, “she is an inoccent soul, except for killing the neighbor lady next door. But the b***h had it coming.”

  • I have to admit that in the pilot of Enlisted, I guffawed when Super Soldier brother was “apologizing” to his platoon and one grunt blurted “This is a *terrible* apology!” I guess it was the delivery by the actor, but I laughed right out loud.

    I also enjoyed Gus’s enthusiasm for “Pottering.” (Psych)

  • “It’s hammer time” was fantastic, but the line of the week for me came from the evil doll in “The Crazy Ones”. Just as Robin Williams rips off its head to shut it off, it says, “I’ll see you in HELL!”

  • The one from Castle! A bit of humour in such an intense scene!

  • The “Quote of the week” award is definitely going to Castle’s Esposito. Coming up with a line like “Javier? You’re going to name a white Irish kid Javier?” while being trapped in the basement of a burning building & about to pass out from smoke inhalation!

  • Dewey Crowe’s line about only getting $300 at the beginning of Justified was funnier than the line you picked. That whole first scene in the courtroom had me in tears!

    • Ha ha, yeah, pretty much any scene with Dewey has me cracking up. He’s just so funny. Though I did laugh out loud at the line they picked though.

  • Revolution, when Monroe says to Miles: “Did you also buy [my son] a hand job and some coke?”

  • I also laughed about Castle’s line “Pick a date for my wedding? I was planning on bringing her.” Hahahaa

  • I can’t believe you did not include this quote from The Good Wife:

    “Will: So you decided to change?
    Alicia: Yep. Into what I wore the night you banged me the first time.
    Will: It’s pretty low of you.
    Alicia: I know. I wasn’t so discriminating back then”

    Brilliant exchange brilliantly acted IMO.

    • +1, I was just coming to comment on that omission. I guffawed.
