(Neither do I Vanessa... neither do I... She deserves so much better than how these people are treating her TBH. - Folie-lex)
2. Natalie: "You know what? You're the one who has no idea what you're talking about. This isn't like choosing some dress for that stupid quinceañera you keep wanting to throw me." Mari: "Don't you change the subject on me." Natalie: "Actually you know what? Maybe it is just like that. I don't have a choice in throwing that party, just like I don't have a choice in who I am!" (Folie-lex)

1. Mike: "What are you doing here?" Beau: "Saving your dumb birds. It’s an apology in the form of a selfless gesture. Accept it or choose vengeance." Mike: "Okay, I choose vengeance."
2. Kay: "Seems like you’re a little bit annoyingly sensitive, which is exactly what I would expect from a pregnant woman." Rio: "I am not annoyingly sensitive, I’m naturally sensitive all the time, you know that. You like it about me, you do! Say it!" Kay: "I like it about you."
3. Clara: "Baby baby baby baby baby...!" Deb: "Oh congratulations!" Clara: "Baby baby baby baby baby!" Mike: "They already know? We just found out."

If you’re lucky.” Vinnie: “Sev..Seven out of ten of our job…” Tommo: “It’s six and half, innit really.” Vinnie: “Well six. Six out of ten of our jobs go...relatively well. And up to now none of yours have, alright.”

2. Jackie: "So the sermon’s over. Why are you still here?" Sammy: "I don’t know. It just makes me feel good. It’s peaceful." Jackie: "Makes sense. I know it wasn’t these cushy benches. My butt bone is not gonna wake up ‘til Easter."

It's hard to believe, huh?” MacGyver: “How is that even possible?” Leland: “Well, a group of people got together back then with a singular purpose: to protect the planet from plague, from famine, and... excuse my French… dumbasses, like the people in power today.”

Magnum P.I. -
1. Magnum: “You know I wouldn't ask if it wasn't important.” Katsumoto: “I don't know that. At all. Besides, isn't this a Higgins thing?” Magnum: “Well, uh... we're kind of working with opposing clients right now.” Katsumoto: “So you're admitting that you're useless without her.” Magnum: “No, I didn't say that.” Katsumoto: “Maybe you should.” Magnum: “Is that what it would take for you to help me?” Katsumoto: “Wouldn't hurt.” Magnum: “Okay. Fine. I am, uh… kind of useless… Without… Without Higgins.” Katsumoto: “Now, all together.” Magnum: “I'm kind of useless without Higgins. There. Can you just help me, please?” Katsumoto: Sorry, no can do without a warrant. Have a good one, Magnum.”
2. Higgins: "I don't want to live a lie.” Magnum: “I can't argue that. Are you absolutely sure about this?” Higgins: “Trust me. It's not a rash decision.

Mixed-ish - 
1. Bow: "These days, people use the term 'mixed' to define themselves, but to some black people that can feel like we’re trying to distance ourselves from blackness. So when I said 'I’m not black I’m mixed' to Tamika it felt like I was saying 'I’m half white so I’m better than you, like Tiger Woods.'"
2. Harrison: "Hold on. You’re quitting on me to go on the road for a baseball player?" Alicia: "Please tell me you know the difference between Jesse Jackson and Reggie Jackson." Harrison: "How am I supposed to keep up when there’s five of them."

1. Gemma: "Do you promise not to do anything dangerous?" Marty: "Oh absolutely. I guarantee we will have a no-fun, danger-free, super-boring time." Grover: "Uh... I'm not sure I want to go anymore." Marty [quietly]: "Hey, sip it kid, we're trying to break you out."
2. Malcolm: "The only reason your mom is so overprotective is because of how much she cares about you." Marty: "Yeah. If you see a kid having too much fun that means his mom doesn’t love him." Grover: "So that kid in the front of the roller coaster with his hands up in the air..." Malcolm: "You mean the one eating that corn dog with no shirt on?" Marty: "Yeah. His mama don’t even know he’s here." Grover: "Whoa. That’s sad." Malcolm: "Exactly. So every time your mom tells you 'stop running', 'tie your shoes' or 'be careful', what she’s really saying is she loves you." (Folie-lex)

Penny Dreadful: City of Angels - 
1. Lewis: "Those mother fuckers only see a brown face, same kind shot them down. Go round back." Tiago: "I do that, and I'm gonna go round back for the rest of my life."

The Rookie - 
1. Lopez: "But while I'm distracted those viejas are hijacking my wedding." Jackson: "Come on. I'm pretty sure it's not that bad." Lopez: "They decided the color scheme should be pink and peach." Jackson: "Oh no." Lopez: "Do I look like a woman who's ever worn peach?" Jackson: "No. You're definitely an autumn."
2. Harper: "You do not, under any circumstance ever use the Q-word while on duty. That is like saying Macbeth in theatre, or talking about a no-hitter in the dugout." Nolan: "Okay. I had no idea you were superstitious." Harper: "That is not superstition. That's fact."
3. Tim: "You may be 30 days from crossing the finish line, but the only thing that happens when you cross it is that I won't be there to keep you from washing out. Or worse. So you better believe this next month is gonna be tough... 'cause I know you can handle it." Lucy: "That's oddly sweet." (Folie-lex)

Roswell, New Mexico - 
1. Liz: “Ah, I am coming with, and don’t you dare say I have to stay 'cause it’s 'police business', you bar wench.”
2. Michael: “Well, it was here a few months back! Did I miss an experiment where it grew legs and a fondness for the outdoors?”
3. Jenna: “How long was I gone?” Max: “Uh, well… Taylor Swift is president.” Jenna: “Oh, that’s good. Someone less emotional in the Oval Office.” (Jamie Coudeville)


The Simpsons - 
1. Marge: "Lisa Marie Simpson, are you reading the Bible?" Lisa: "Yes, it's good, but I have a few notes..." [proceeds to show a page with labels "racist", "sexist", and "incest"]
2. Bode: "Dear God, please let 'The Simpsons' never end. Amen." (Abir Mohammad)


Single Parents - 
1. Derek: "I heard all the parts. Especially the one where you said you wanted to be in a relationship with me?" Angie: "I said 'maybe'. And I was in a fight with my best friend. That’s legally the same as being drunk."
2. Miggy [to Will]: "I got mad respect for Poppy and Douglas. They had the guts to take a shot. The only thing worse than a breakup is letting those feelings eat you up. I could never do that, Could you?" (Look... I'm not a fan of the Angie/Will thing. But this quote deserves major props for its insightfulness. - Folie-lex)
3. Poppy: "You were Parent Trapping us." Amy/Emma: "WHOA!" Amy: "Poppy!" Douglas: "Look, I'm on your side, but it's 2020. You don't say that to twins." (Folie-lex)

Supergirl -

Tommy - 
1. Michael: "Right before we got married you told me you were a cop to the bone and I had to deal with it." Tommy: "Yeah, I was barely out of my teens. And if I remember correctly you told me you were only ever going to work in the theatre. How long you been killing them zombies now?" Michael: "Difference is we both kinda knew I was lying and you were telling the truth." (I loved their dynamic so much. He was not bitter, and they still loved each other deeply. It was a beautifully depicted relationship for their situation. - Folie-lex)
2. Coop: "I've seen eight chiefs come and go. When I see one on the way out, I got into the habit, I guess, of standing aside. Survival instinct. But, uh... I shouldn't have done that with you. I shouldn't have said something. I'm sorry."
3. Lovell: "Movie studios, the beaches, the palm trees, that's for tourists. What LA is, really, is a place of business. And business needs calm, predictability. You are a disruptor. Milt Leakey is paleolithic, but he understood when to stay his hand. You, on the other hand, push and push for some abstract idea of what you think of as justice. It's destabilizing." Tommy: "You know, I really should thank you." Lovell: "Why?" Tommy: "Because now I know what I gotta do. I'm gonna get my job back, so I can put you in jail." (Folie-lex)

Vida - 
1. Lyn: "Like the movie. Edward James Olmos and everyone’s favorite non-Mexican Mexican, Lou Diamond Philips." (This made me laugh so hard... it’s so on point. It totally feels like LDP is 100% an honorary Mexican at this point. - Folie-lex)
2. Emma: "If you’re saying this man was living just a few miles away from us, and never looked for us, why would I want to know this person?" Lyn: "Because he’s the only family we have." Emma: "We are the only family we have." (Folie-lex)

What We Do in the Shadows - 
1. Colin: "It’s like the old adage, you know: Co-workers die. Vampire roommates, they’re forever."
2. Colin: "I wish people would understand that I don’t live to drain. I drain to live. It is draining for them though."
3. Nadja [re: Colin Robinson]: "He’s not a wild card. He’s the card you get on the top of the deck that has the instructions on it, so you throw it away." (Folie-lex)
