I don’t want to be the reason that you don’t win a Nobel.” Sheldon: “You’re the only reason I deserve one.” Amy: “But if your best shot is with them, I think you should take it.” Sheldon: “Is this really what you want me to do?” Amy: “I just want you to be happy.”
3. Siebert: “I hope you know that’s going to cause a fight between us and the Fermilab team.” Sheldon: “If it’s a fight that doesn’t involve any touching, risk of physical harm, or uncomfortable eye contact ‘cause it’s happening online or through intermediaries, I say bring it.” (Dahne)

3. Doctor: “You like this woman. You trust this woman. Tell her your history. Tell her what you’re feeling and if she’s still interested, then you have nothing to fear.” Bull: “What if you’re wrong?” Doctor: “Well, if I’m wrong, you die but what a way to go.” (Dahne)

Shannon: "Yeah." Clem: "This is cocktail sexy." Shannon: "Oh, sure. Very very sexy. Um, by the way, do you mind if I watch Shrek on your back seat DVD player? Is that okay?" (Mads)
2. Nick: “You know what? I’ll talk to her, even though she does not respond to criticism well. There’s a good chance she’s gonna kill me, hide the body, and my face is gonna end up on the milk carton that she left out.”
3. Rose: “Before I forget, I was going over the guest list for your wedding and there seems to be a mistake. You left your father off.” Clem: “Oh yeah, no, that’s not a mistake. I was just worried that if we invited him, he might actually come.”

2. Deeks: “Some days we put bad guys in jail, right, and those are the good days.” Kensi: “Yeah.” Deeks: “And days like today, the tough days...if you want to help, if you want to do some good in this world…” Kensi: “I should be the one to tell him.” Deeks: “Baby, you’re all he’s got and that means he got pretty lucky today.”
3. David: “I wish something I did or said to Naser would change the way I feel, but all I want in life is to have my son back.” Kensi: “I know.” David: “Putting Naser in jail doesn’t help that.” Kensi: “Yeah, but it might prevent somebody else from getting their son killed.” David: “You do know how to say the right thing.” (Dahne) 

NCIS: New Orleans - 
1. Pride: “Cassius was a bad man and a worse father, and that’s the best I can say about him. I suffered enough when he was alive.

No, he doesn’t deserve it.” Rita: “He’s gone, Dwayne. It doesn’t matter what he deserves anymore.”

Sorry. Still probably a little too [Backing up, then forward, then back.] That's it. This is embarrassing. I'm feeling a little nervous." Grey: "Are you happy with your positioning?" John: "I'm - Shouldn't I be? It's non-tactical." Grey: "The engine block should be positioned at an angle just in case we have to take cover behind it." John: "Sir, she's an elderly woman. You don't agree?" Grey: "I think you should plan for the worst." John: "Right." Grey: "But if you're happy with it, fine." (This scene was one of my favorites of the episode. The awkwardness of Nolan trying to park perfectly with Grey judging him and their perfectly timed banter, it was hilarious. - Mads)

I hope she stays on Discovery. - Katherine Meusey)

2. Alan Jones: "You questioned people during this time, right?" Wayne Hays: "You know another way to do it?"
3. Brett Woodard: "I ain't one of them burnouts. Y'know - come back and start bustin' guys up, gettin' high. And I ain't a bum. I keep a house. I pay my way." Wayne Hays: "Hey, I ain't judgin', man. Look, I punch in and out. I put on a suit in the morning. And to be honest, I don't have much of a life." Brett Woodard: "So why? Why punch in? Why the suit?" Wayne Hays: "I don't ask myself questions like that. Could be I'm too chicken-shit, Mr. Woodard."
4. Roland West: "Do you like kids generally?" Brett Woodard: "Do I-- What the fuck's the right answer to that?" (DarkUFO)

2. Gretchen: "I think I follow too many porn sites." Jimmy: "How many do you follow?" Gretchen: "So many. But I'm paranoid if I cut one, I'm gonna miss out on some really good stuff." Jimmy: "Well, then don't unfollow any." Gretchen: "But every time I pick up my phone, it takes me, like, an hour to scroll through everything. Longer if I get all horned up in the middle." Jimmy: "Yeah, no, actually, it sounds like you're in a terrible dilemma, about which I empathize fully." Gretchen: "Aw, thanks, Jimmy."

How about I go with you?”
3. Meemaw: “I didn’t go to college. I was a total screw up in high school. I might not fit in at all.” John: “Don’t be silly. Everyone’s gonna love you and I’m excited to show you off. The general consensus among the faculty is you don’t exist.”
