The year on the calendar might be different, but our appreciation for top-notch TV dialogue remains the same.
Though many series are still on holiday hiatus (and might be off the air a little longer than anticipated), we’ve still got more than a dozen sound bites to single out from the past week of television.
Netflix gets plenty of recognition in our first Quotes of the Week round-up of 2021, including dialogue from Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Bridgerton, Cobra Kai and the Black Mirror team’s snarky farewell to 2020. Meanwhile, the latest episodes of The Stand (read post mortem) and RuPaul’s Drag Race (read premiere recap) also make an appearance.
Rounding out the compilation are a couple of eulogies for the Yearly Departed as well as some quotes we’re honoring belatedly, as episodes like The Flight Attendant‘s season finale aired while this weekly feature was on its own holiday break. (And if you missed our collection of Quotes of the Year, click here to catch up on our favorite bon mots and zingers of 2020.)
