A new year is officially upon us, and with it comes our renewed appreciation for TV’s sharpest dialogue.
Sure, there are still plenty of series that don’t return from hiatus until later this month, but the end of 2021 — and very, very start of 2022 — brought memorable scripted and unscripted moments nonetheless.
In the list below, we’ve gathered a baker’s dozen of the best zingers, bon mots and one-liners from the past week or so, including Issa’s relatable wish for her own future on Insecure‘s series finale, a deeply regrettable joke made by 1883‘s Ennis and a long overdue — if not entirely genuine — apology from Bellatrix Lestrange herself, courtesy of HBO Max’s Harry Potter reunion special.
Our roundup also features double doses of Cobra Kai, Emily in Paris and Yellowstone, plus sound bites from And Just Like That…, Call the Midwife and The Book of Boba Fett.
Scroll through the list below to see all of our picks for the week(-ish), then hit the comments and tell us if we missed any of your faves!
