    • And the plural of bon mots is bons mots. Tsk tsk.

      • I thought it was “bons mot”.

  • Loved the Sleepy Hollow stuff, thanks for the bonus one too. There were a few other lines from that episode I loved like when he had Abbey’s cell phone and decided Yolanda was better listener then Suri.
    I’m a bit disappointed there’s not a single Boyd Crowder quote this week. He’s the only character who uses 10,000 words to speak what should be a 5 word sentence and yet he still manages to sound like he knows what the hell he’s talking about. While watching last Justified episode I half expected to a large portion of his dialogue on here.

  • You can always count on the best quotes coming from Sleepy Hollow’s Icabod. He nails it, every time . Cannot wait for the return of this show. I am hoping for a quick and speedy Spring and Summer, so I can resume hearing more of his quotes.

    • I choose to forge my fate with you!! #swoon

  • Ichabod: Admit it. You appreciate me a little…
    Abbie: Microscopically.

    • That was so cute :). So many awesome moments between them in the finale-I’m pretty certain my heart melted during the “I choose to forge my fate with you” scene. I just sat there going, “Ohhhhhhhh…” over and over again. And Crane’s reaction to the Reenactment stuff, and his constant rants about cell phones…hilarious.
      Good to see “Community” listed in here, too-Jeff and Britta’s argument was hilarious. I think my favorite quote, though, had to be Abed’s line about the homing pigeon, just in case Troy wanted to find his way back home. Made an already heavily emotional moment that much more poignant.

  • Really, you passed on the Shield “chips passing in the night” pun for some of the mundane comments here??? You must really hate puns because that one was funny! Thought the AHS quote was great and, of course, anything Blacklist’s Red says is usually quotable, though.

    • Oops, my bad; meant Intelligence’s pun, not Shield.

  • LOVE kooky Myrtle and her hysterical sartorial quips. PolPot in Givenchy might have been my fave.

  • Spader could read a cereal box and make it entertaining. I’m so happy to have him back on my tv!

  • How about Banshee “what is worse than have your nuts crushed with a bat? Have it done again”

  • On Parks: “Oh no, this one’s dead.” As the man held a stalk of cauliflower next to his wife’s broccoli. I lost it!
