American Housewife -
1. Oliver: “Oh you wouldn’t know what I thought because you didn’t invite me. You invited Trip, Franklin and Lonnie.” Greg: “I invited them because they do not mock me like you do. Whenever I share an interest, I can count on you to make fun of it and this reenactment is a big deal for me. So why would I want to be around you for it?” (Folie-lex)
2. Oliver: “Can you believe my dad said he didn’t want me around?” Cooper: “Are you actually asking me? ‘Cause if you’re asking me, I’m going to tell you the truth.” Oliver: “I’m asking.” Cooper: “Then yes, I can believe he said that. You can be a complete and total jerk to him sometimes.” Oliver: “Hey!” Cooper: “Do you have any idea how lucky you are? My dad’s somewhere in the Aegean Sea right now. That’s all he told me. It’s like...can’t a guy get some coordinates or something?

Your dad’s a general worth fighting for.” (Folie-lex)

Broke -
1. Luis: "I was right to push you. The raise is all because of me! Excuse me. The heat has made me say what I'm actually thinking." (Prpleight)
2. Javier: “I can’t believe we’ve been dancing around you owing us money all night because I was so afraid of what you might think if you found out that we are broke. And my wife has stuck by my side through all of this because she is the most amazing person I know. Yes, she’s from Reseda and she’s damn proud of it.” Lizzie: “Well…” Javier: “Okay, mostly okay with it and because I have her I’m the richest person in the world. So you can take your judgment…(starts chewing them out in Spanish).” (Dahne)
3. Jackie: “Lizzie’s kind of gotten in my head. Maybe I am a little harsh.” Luis: “You’re not harsh. You’re a passionate woman with a large capacity for insults.” (Dahne)

I was a passenger.” Jake: “Was it Passenger 57?” Holt: “I honestly don’t know.” Jake: “It had to have been. Just say it was that.” Holt: “You know Peralta, sometimes I don’t understand the words coming out of your mouth.” Jake: “Oh, my God! Was it Rush Hour?” Holt: “What? No. You know what? I’m too old for this crap.” Jake: “It was Lethal Weapon?! Sir! Are you Murtaugh?! Does that make me Riggs? I’m Riggs!” (Folie-lex)

Charmed -
1. Ray: “But the reason why I never told you the truth about not being your biological father was because it never really mattered to me.

2. Marisol: “I know the world can be a cruel and frustrating place. But when you feel yourself start to lose your temper, I need you to breathe. Because when women like you and I lash out, there is no second chance.” (Marko)
3. Maggie: “Look, I get that it must have sucked finding out your wife cheated and had a kid that wasn't yours, but it's also really hard to be that kid. Living a life with so many missing pieces, and not being able to talk to the one person who can fill in the blanks, because, like it or not, Dexter is gone, Mom is gone, and that just leaves you! Ray, it is just you!” (Marko)
4. Jordan: “But having a panic attack doesn't mean you're weak. It just means you're human.” (Marko)

2. Jess: “You know, your mom used to think before she made a decision, any decision. Not like us. You didn’t think before you decided to wander off and I didn’t think before I decided to ground you. So, I was thinking, maybe we should try to be a little bit more like mom. Deal?” Tali: “Deal!” (Folie-lex)
3. Clint: “Guess the guy has a type.” Sheryll & Hana: “Melissa’s prettier.” Kenny: “They said it first.” (Folie-lex)

So, hacking into the Department of Defense is off limits, but hacking into DARPA, one of the most top secret government think tanks in this country, is cool?” Rakesh: “Well actually, Cory works at DARPA, so technically we’d just be helping him gain access to his own facility.” Zack: “Oh great. I’ll make sure to tell that to my lawyer when we’re arrested for treason.”

Magnum, PI -
1. Higgins: “When there’s no one here, you needn’t call me ‘Boo,’ and since Krista and Gil aren’t posing for a photo, we needn’t either. I’d rather get hit in the face with a golf shoe.
Bert: “Did somebody say golf? Gladys and I are avid players.
Magnum: “Really? So is she! Ain’t that right, Boo? (I think someone was just looking for an excuse to call someone Boo.
2. Higgins: “Ah yes, ‘tie the knot.’ That custom in antiquity, where couples are literally tied to one another, in ceremony, to signify their bond.” Gladys: “I take it you two are just dating.” (Folie-lex)
3. Higgins: “All I’m saying is, personally, I find it refreshing when a man can muster up the courage to ask me out in person, opposed to using some app.” Magnum: “Okay, so in this clear hypothetical, do you ever say ‘yes’?” Higgins: “I said, ‘I find it refreshing.’ “ Magnum: “So that’s a no.” (Folie-lex)

3. Adult Bow voiceover: “When my dad fought the power, he was as cool as the wind blowing through his hair. And when my mom fought the power, she was just as cool as dad, even if Hollywood fans didn’t take into account the fact that she had different hair texture.” (Folie-lex)

1. Gibbs: “It shouldn’t take a war to make the world that simple.” (Kath)

1. Fatima: “I feel like you guys always change it up.” Kensi: “What? No. There’s so much drama and intrigue out in the field that when we’re home or at the office, we are like slow and steady monogamous lifers, essentially. We’re like NCIS agents by day and CPA’s by night.”
2. Deeks to Beale: “No, my takeaway is that you’re incredibly talented and you could be working anywhere making millions of dollars but instead you choose to work here because you want to make a difference. And I appreciate that and more importantly, I appreciate you.”
3. Rush: “The FBI does not travel light.” Fatima: “Yeah, no kidding.” Rush: “You wanted a list of everyone at the agency who knew Patricia’s comings and goings since her arrival in the US in the last four days.

You just heard 3 of them.” Wanda: “Did you hear 3 Date Nights?” Coop: “At this point, I don’t know if I can identify a Date Night.

Seven babies have been born there. The 76 seven, bonded by a bathroom stall and parents with poor time management skills.” (Folie-lex and Dahne)
2. Will: “So what are we binging?” Angie: “Gavel Town, it’s incredible. The pilot’s bad. Second episode is like a totally different show. Three to five are treading water. Six sucks, but the seventh episode has an amazing twist that will make it all worth it.” Will: “A show that takes 6 hours to get good? Yeah, I’ll give it a chance.” ~~I mean... how many times have we all had this conversation one way or the other?

Sheldon, if I was offered a choice between all the knowledge of the universe or the endless pursuit of it, I would choose the pursuit.” Sheldon: “That’s very insightful” Feynman: “Hold it, hold it, he didn’t come up with that. He stole it from Gotthold Lessing.” (Dahne)
