    Catherine is hands-down the best part of Reign. I love how she’s slowly rubbing off on Mary.

  2. Mary says:

    Loved Felicity’s interrogation techniques – if you don’t answer her questions, she’s going to give away all of your money.

  3. Claire says:

    Loved Rayna’s line on Nashville.

  4. Dav says:

    Wait….on the Suburgatory quote…did she just give a shout out to TVLine by mentioning “Blind Items”?

    • Patrick says:

      Uh, yeah. This site didn’t invent blind items.

      Step 1, the internet was invented.
      Step 2, someone posted sports scores on said internet
      Step 3, someone posted porn on the internet.
      Step 4, someone posted rumors about a celebrity, got sued into oblivion, and began calling them Blind items.

      Steps 2 and 3 might be in the wrong order.

      • Dav says:

        I never said TVLine invented blind items you d-bag. Sometimes shows give a shout out to entertainment sites because they know it will get them attention. I thought that might be the case here.

  5. omar says:

    Wait… Awkward had a lot of great quotes this week:

    Tamara: “He’s Taylor Swifting
    Sadie: “Shiri, find the nearest mental ward!”

  6. Brandy says:

    Reign,Devious Maids!once & Nashville ones were good

  7. mary says:

    Best quote ever and my mantra…”Bitch…with WiFi” hahahaha

  8. I’m glad you included the “remember his mama took your eyebrows” quote from Grey’s, not only was it funny, but it was also a pleasant flashback to the earlier seasons :) Gonna miss Yang and her friendship with Mer, so much!

  9. Tom Charles says:

    One thing that irked me about Sheldon’s quote is that he wouldn’t have said “Doctor Who” he’d have known that he’s just The Doctor, that’s the kind of stuff that makes some people hate The Big Bang Theory

    • just saying says:

      this. i noticed this too.

    • Beckie says:

      Yes but the majority of the general public doesn’t know that. If Sheldon had said “I’ve said good bye to 11 doctors” people would think he was talking about regular doctors and not get the joke. It had to be changed so the audience would get it. (Seriously, I’m a Doctor Who fan and I might not have gotten it.) Sometimes you have to give a little so everyone can enjoy the joke.

      • Michelle says:

        Even by saying Doctor Whos, it’s likely that some people wouldn’t get it either. Besides, what’s the whole point of a reference if they feel they have to explain it? I think it was most likely a mistake by the writers.

      • CountryQueen says:

        I’ve never watched Dr. Who, so I needed the reference. The only reason I got the joke, is because I’m always on TV sights. LOL And yes, I should be watching Dr. Who, I know I would love it.

    • A says:

      Things like that are one of the reasons I stopped watching the show.

  10. Pat says:

    #23, Bob Newhart in fact that whole show last week with him in it, was absolutely hysterical. Everything he was saying to Sheldon was so funny.

  11. Jane says:

    “bitch with wifi”
    how the hell a girl with glasses and ponytail with smile on her pink lips look so freaking badass

    • GildedRose says:

      LOL Jane, that describes Felicity perfectly in that ep. I mean, the other week she plotted and helped carry out a bombing. This week she interrogates and “financially tortures” a guy to get info. I love the “bad ass” vibe they’re giving her. It’s outstanding!

      • Jane says:

        true, usually they gave character a no-care attitude or some kung fu move so audience think that they’re badass, but felicity show us we don’t have to be mean or dark or strong to look badass, just be yourself, love her

  12. GildedRose says:

    Without a doubt, Arrow’s Felicity Smoak quip, “Bitch With Wifi” was my quote of the week. It was such an uncharacteristically awesome scene for Felicity. Not because she was funny — she’s always fun — and not because she was in the field — some of her best scenes on Arrow are her in the field with the team — but because we got to see a really smart, kind of wicked mean that Felicity isn’t allowed to show all the time. I loved her interrogation technique and her bright, chipper, “Hi, I’m your interrogator!” when she appeared. It was just unexpected and awesome and made me love her even more. So glad it made the list. Emily Bett Rickards kills it every week.

    • Claire says:

      ^^THIS^^ Nailed it! Best character on TV

      • wonderwall says:

        Which says a lot because she’s pretty much the most underdeveloped character in Arrow (after Diggle). I’m glad that the writers stopped making Felicity’s story revolve around Oliver for once (and that’s coming from someone who would love to see them in a real relationship!). I hope they keep up with it because Felicity as an individual is a fantastic character!

        • yurie says:

          I’ve always said that both Arrow and The Tomorrow People would benefit more from less corny romance and more serious character moments.

        • Claire says:

          She most definitely is both of those — most underdeveloped character as well as a fantastic individual. However, for being the most underdeveloped I think it speaks volumes that she is ALSO such a strong character that really stands out, really, the strongest female on the show now that Moira has left for the afterlife.
          This is the thing with Felicity, she has never needed Oliver’s validation and therefore the more this character develops, the more independent from Oliver she becomes. I love that. Because while I love the Oliver/Felicity pairing, I am first and foremost for a stronger more independent Felicity. I don’t want her to get lost in Oliver ‘s world. With the strength of EBR’s portrayal and the added strength of additional development, this character knows no limits. Looking forward to seeing more of her!

  13. An Irrelevant says:

    Shaw to Reese: Who died and made you Finch?

  14. An Irrelevant says:

    Root to Shaw and Reese: Chin up, kids. We’re not out the game yet.

  15. Trish says:

    Loved Felicity Smoak’s “Bitch with WiFi” line! That’s my girl, she continues to breath life to Arrow.

  16. I was worried that Felicity quote wasn’t going to make it in. That whole scene was something else.

    I was troubled as a Doctor Who fan initially by the Big Bang joke, but then I realized Sheldon was probably qualifying his statement for the professor since he doesn’t seem to get sci-fi. I am a bit disappointed another one of Bob Newhart’s any gold lines didn’t make it in, “We’ll be right back after I fire my writers.”

  17. Michelle says:

    You forgot “You can slice the ginger.” – Hannibal

  18. Heathers says:

    Thanks for including Betty Draper Francis’ line about the farmer’s daughter’s blouse! I literally lol!

  19. gdv says:

    Haha. My husband has always called Helena “the Shakira clone” when we talk about Orphan Black.

  20. Beth Ann says:

    Loved Felicity’s “Bitch…with WiFi.” Also liked Hayley on The Originals: “If I died and someone threw a party, I would be SO pissed.”
