Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell “The Friends of English Magic”

2) Vinculus: "Know this, magician - your coming was foretold long ago. I've been expecting you these past 20 years. Now I've come to explain your destiny to you, as it is written in my book."

Norrell "Did you say two?" Vinculus "Ssh. The first shall fear me, the second shall long to behold me. The first shall bury his heart in the dark wood beneath the snow, yet still feel its ache.

3) Stan: “You have such a rare talent. Stop looking over your shoulder at what other people have.” Peggy: “You don’t think I can do it?” Stan: “I said the opposite. You’re just excited about being in charge. Working for a producer? That’s not even what you do.” Peggy: “You have no ambition.” Stan: “I’m just very happy being good at my job. I’ve got nothing else to prove.” Peggy: “Spoken like a failure.” Stan: “I hope you’re really drunk ‘cause you’re gonna need an excuse. There’s more to life than work.” (Tonya)
4) Leonard: "I had a dream I was on the shelf in the refrigerator. Someone closes the door and the light goes off, and I know everybody's out there eating. And they open the door and you see everyone smiling and they are happy to see you but maybe they don't look right at you and maybe they don't pick you. And then the door closes again, the light goes off.” (Max)

1) Felix: “Nut up and lead me to the cyclops.” (Nirat)
2) Pupok: "The only reason you're alive is because of me. Get up" Helena "I have no strength" Pupok "It's not exhaustion that stops you. You regret leaving Sarah behind, don't you?" Helena "I regret nothing" Pupok "Why are you lying here then? Because your sister is more important than your baby?" Helena "No! Because I'm hungry" (Sandi) Aww, poor Pupok became Helena's 'sandwich'.
3) Felix: “Do you want to see how pretty you look? Aren’t you beautiful.” Rachel: “Scott get Dr. Nealon.” Felix: “Tell me what you know. No one is coming for you do you understand because no one cares.” Rachel: “I’m not going to help you if you humil..” Felix: “Humiliate you? I haven’t even gotten started. Why don’t we go for a spin shall we and maybe then she’ll tell me where my sister is! Where did they take her?!” Rachel: “Get me out of this… place.” (Nirat)
4) Beth: "We do terrible things for the people we love. Stop asking why. Start asking who." (Darth Locke)
5) Scott: "Cosima? The book. Duncan's book, with all the weird symbols and stuff. I think Rachel knows the code" (Sandi) I've been wondering how Rachel would be brought back into the story, I guess she will bargain her release for the code.

The Flash “Fast Enough”
1) Joe: "This is why you became the Flash, Barry. To put things right. You saved a lot of peoples' lives this past year, Barry. Now it's time to save yours" (Ben)
2) Barry: "I thought you were the sure one. I was kind of banking on that when I made my decision the first time." Joe: "I was faking it. Sometimes parents do that. Most of the time parents do that. Look, of course I'm scared but I didn't want you to not help your mother because you're worried about me." Barry: "Well I'll always worry about you Joe just like you'll always worry about me. I'm sorry but you can't stop that. Do you think I can do this? Do you think I can save my mom? I mean do you think I'm fast enough?" Joe: "Yes, I know you are." Barry: "You know I've… I've dreamed my whole life about saving her, freeing my dad, and… I never thought I'd have to lose another parent to do that." Joe: "Barry..." Barry: "Joe, it's true. It's true. I've always been so focused on everything that I lost that night but I gained so much too. I was born with one father and that tragedy gave me another and I don't think I can lose you." Joe: "You won't ever lose me. Ever, you hear me. Ever." (Dahne & Nirat)
3) Barry: "Dad, look I know this sounds crazy." Henry: "I think we're way past crazy, slugger." (Dahne)
4) Ronnie: "Now we just need to put it together." Cisco: "Ronnie, I love you but this is a time machine not a bookcase from Ikea." (Dahne & Nirat)
5) Iris: “NO!! No, Eddie, Eddie, no, stay with me okay, stay.” Eddie: “He was wrong turns out I’m a hero after all. Iris: “You are Eddie, you are my Hero.” Eddie: “That’s all I ever wanted to be, your hero.” (Nirat)
6) Barry: "My name is Barry Allen, and I am the fastest man alive. When I was a child, I saw my mother killed by something impossible. My father went to prison for her murder. Then an accident made me the impossible. To the outside world, I am an ordinary forensic scientist, but secretly, I use my speed to fight crime and find others like me. And one day, I'll find who killed my mother and get justice for my father. That day is today." (Sandi) I liked the different intro for the finale, it set the tone up for the rest of the episode nicely.
7) Cisco: "So long and thanks for all the fish" (Sandi) It's always nice to hear a Douglas Adams quote.

The Messengers “Metamorphosis”
1) Peter: "It's kind of hard to have faith in anything when you don't know where you come from." Nadia: "Maybe for now it's enough to know where you belong." (Dahne)
2) Raul: "Tell me you didn't just heal that kid." Erin: "What can I say? I'm a mother." (Dahne)
3) Alan (after braining someone with a rock): "What? It's in The Hunger Games." (Dahne)
4) Nadia: "Can't you just like pray for the answer or something?" Peter: "That's not how this works." Nadia: "I'm sorry. It's still a little hard for me to wrap my head around all of this." Peter: "It does have a way of testing your beliefs." (Dahne)

Wayward Pines “Do Not Discuss Your Life Before”
1) Ben: "Okay, get a room." Ethan: "Get a room? The last time we got a room,we ended up with you." (Dahne)
2) Ethan: "Look, I'm a government agent." Sheriff: "Yeah and Mary Poppins is your grandmother. You're a guy with no ID, no badge, who just stole that car." (Dahne)
3) Sheriff: "We cannot tolerate people who don't play by the rules." (Dahne)
4) Ethan Burke: Where's Pope? Arlene: I don't know, let me look in my Magic 8-Ball and find out. Oh wait a minute, I don't have a Magic 8-Ball. Why don't you have a seat? (Darth Locke)
5) Sheriff Pope: "I hear you paid Patricia Evans a visit. Here the poor woman is grieving over her dead husband and you go banging on her door like a drunken Bible salesman." (Darth locke
6) Ethan: “You got anything to close this wound?” Beverly: “Just ducktape.” (Nirat)
7) Nurse Pam: “He’s a wild one thats for sure. Slammed me into a wall just a few days ago. You ever try and suture your own nose Arlene?” (Nirat)

Younger “I'm With Stupid”
1) Liza (about dodgeball): "There was nowhere to run. It was like being trapped in a cage with rabid hipsters. If there's such things as artesian steroids, I'm pretty sure they were on them." (Dahne)
2) Liza: "Do you think Josh is dumb?" Kelsey: "I'm sure he's dumb. He's a guy." Liza: "Josh dropped out of college." Kelsey: "So did Mark Zuckerberg." Liza: "Kelsey, he doesn't read." Kelsey: "Well if that's important to you, then that's important. I mean we all have our deal breakers." (Dahne)

Honorable Mentions:

iZombie “Mr. Berserk”
1) Scott: "You know what they are right?" Major: "What are they?" Scott: "Zombies, dude. Freaking zombies. The city has a zombie problem." (Dahne)
2) Liv: "We've got to get these b**." Clive: "We do but this is a billion dollar company and we have to be smart. We have no evidence. We need to build a case." Ravi: "Preferably before they murder us." (Dahne)
3) Ravi: "You're leaving me. What's his name?" Major: "Oh it's not important. Just know that what we had was real." (Dahne)

Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell “The Friends of English Magic”
1) The Gentleman: "Perhaps I would do better to speak to the other one." Norrell "The other who?" The Gentleman "The other magician." Norrell "No, there is no other magician. I am the only one." The Gentleman "Of course there is another magician. He is your dearest friend in all the world." (Sandi)
This prophecy appears to be very important to the story. The two magicians are obviously the titular characters, and it's also fairly apparent that Norrell is not happy about the fact that there is another magician out there somewhere. I wonder how much of it will come to pass, it says that both of them, Strange & Norrell, will fail - fail at what exactly? I'm guessing that the slave king hinted at is Stephen, but how is he related to the Raven King's return? The show has me hooked after one episode, there's a lot of layers to it, and even though the first episode was a tad on the slow side there was a lot to introduce, so the pacing was understandable.

Mad Men “Person to Person”
1) Don: “I messed everything up. I’m not the man you think I am.” Peggy: “Don, listen to me. What did you ever do that was so bad?” Don: “I broke all my vows, I scandalized my child, I took another man’s name and made nothing of it.” (Tonya)
2) Betty (to Don): "I want to keep things as normal as possible.. and you not being here is part of that." (Max)

Orphan Black: “Certain Agony of the Battlefield”
1) Paul: "It was never Beth I loved." (Darth Locke)
2) Delphine: “Cosima, I miss you.” (Nirat)

The Flash “Fast Enough”
1) Wells: "I don't belong here in these barbaric times. It's like living amongst the dead." Cisco: "Is that what you told yourself when you killed me?" Wells: "What? What did you say?" Cisco: "It was an alternate timeline, one that Barry reset. I never forgot it. It just kept coming back to me and I can still picture the way you looked at me when you called me a son and you crushed my heart with your fist." Wells: "Cisco, I'm sorry." Cisco: "Yeah, it sucked." Wells: "Yeah, not for killing you. I'm sure I had a good reason." (Dahne)
2) Stein: "Once the collision happens a wormhole forms, opening a gateway into time itself. It's at that moment I plan on shouting something along the lines of 'Eureka!" or possibly "Excelsior!" I am uncommitted."
3)Henry: "No. You can't." Barry: "Dad I can make so that night will never have happened. We'll be a family again." Henry: "We are a family." Barry: "Not like this, not without mom." Henry: Barry, theres a natural order to things okay. Things happen the way they do, we may not know why at the time but there must always be a reason. Now I believe that, I've had to believe that." Barry: "I can save mom." Henry: "At what cost? You said time would change. What if it changes you?" Barry: "Well I don't care." Henry: "I do. I am in awe of the remarkable man that you are becoming. All the things you've achieved and not just as the Flash but you, Barry. Your honesty,your heart. You were always a hero and your mom would be just as proud and if she had a say in this, if she thought for one second that you going back to save her would mean you losing what makes you so special, she would never want that. Barry,what I hope for you, maybe the greatest thing that a father can hope for his son, is that one day you will become a father yourself and then you will know how much I truly love you." (Dahne)
4) Wells: "Well sure there's a bit of a risk." Stein: "I would hardly refer to causing an extinction-level event as a bit of a risk." Joe: "Yeah and your accelerator has been about as reliable as the beater I drove in high school." (Dahne & Nirat)
5) Eobard: "I’ve controlled your life for so long Barry. How will you go on without me?" (Nirat)
6) Cisco: “May the Speed Force be with you.” (Nirat)
7) Iris: “I hope whatever life you get is enough for you, that it makes you happy.” (Nirat)
8) Nora: “Who are you?” Barry: “I’m… I’m the Flash.” Nora: “I don’t understand. You look just like my father." Barry: “This won’t make any sense but its me mom, it’s Barry.” Nora: “Barry.” Barry: “Your Barry.” Nora: “My beautiful boy.” Barry: “I get a second chance to come back here, to tell you that I’m okay. Dad and I are both okay and we love you mom. I love you.” (Nirat)
9) Barry: "We're gonna need something else too." Cisco: "Really? And what's that? 'Cause I don't know about you guys but I'm not at all interested in helping you get yourself killed." Barry: "I need you to build a time machine." Cisco: "Go on." (Dahne)
10) Wells: "Don't be afraid, Cisco. A great and honourable destiny awaits you now. I only hope that as you're living your great adventure, that you remember who gave you that life. And that it was given out of love." (Sandi) I can't wait to see Cisco learning and building up his powers as Vibe, he's one of my favourite characters so I'm hoping that it's handled right on the show.

Wayward Pines “Do Not Discuss Your Life Before”
1) Theresa: "He's not dead." Ben: "How do you know that? It's been 5 days. Unless he's with that woman again, which would be worse." (Dahne)
2) Larry: "Don't try to leave, Mr.Burke. That's rule #1." (Dahne)
