as an avid television watcher, i’m loving this list of great quotes from television shows. as an avid television watcher, i also think they left a few out. here are some quotes i’d have added to the list:
“To alcohol! The cause of–and solution to–all of life’s problems.”
“Angel: ‘Cause I could see your heart. You held it before you for everyone to see. And I worried that it would be bruised or torn. And more than anything in my life I wanted to keep it safe–to warm it with my own.
Buffy: That’s beautiful. Or taken literally, incredibly gross.
Angel: I was just thinking that, too.”
“Relationships don’t work the way they do on television and in the movies. Will they? Won’t they? And then they finally do, and they’re happy forever. Gimme a break. Nine out of ten of them end because they weren’t right for each other to begin with, and half of the ones who get married get divorced anyway, and I’m telling you right now, through all this stuff I have not become a cynic. I haven’t. Yes, I do happen to believe that love is mainly about pushing chocolate covered candies and, you know, in some cultures, a chicken. You can call me a sucker, I don’t care, because I do believe in it. Bottom line: couples who are truly right for each other wade through the same crap as everybody else, but the big difference is they don’t let it take them down.”

“Blockhead: Twenty-first century genetic engineering will not only eradicate the Siamese twins and the alligator-skinned people, but you’re going to be hard-pressed to find, uh, a slight overbite or a not-so-high cheekbone. You see, I’ve seen the future and the future looks just like him. [points at Mulder] Imagine going through your whole life looking like that. That’s why it’s left up to the self-made freaks like me and the Conundrum to remind people.
Scully: Remind people of what?
Blockhead: Nature abhors normality. It can’t go very long without creating a mutant.”
“A few weeks ago you told me that Lane had a crush on me. Well, I have a crush on her, too. Now, I know you have very strict rules about dating and boys, but I just want you to know that I’m a good person. I don’t smoke, I don’t drink, I’ve never gotten a ticket, I’m healthy, I take care of myself, I floss. I never watch more than 30 minutes of television a night partly because I think it’s a waste of time and partly because there’s nothing on. I respect my parents, I do well in school, I never play video games in case they do someday prove that playing them can turn you into a serial killer. I don’t drink coffee. I hate soda because the carbonation freaks me out. I’m happy to give up meat if you feel strongly about it. I don’t mind wearing a tie, I enjoy playing those hymns on my guitar, and I really, really want to take your daughter to the prom.”

“There is not a thin line between love and hate. There is, in fact, a Great Wall of China with armed sentries posted every twenty feet between love and hate.”
“Michael: What comes before anything? What have we always said is the most important thing?
George Michael: Breakfast.
George Michael: Family, right. I thought you meant of the things you eat.”
Brennan: Why are you nice to me?
Booth: Because. Because they think they get away with it.
Booth: They burn their victim. They blow him up. They toss him in the ocean. They bury them in the desert. They throw ’em to wood chippers. Sometimes, you know, years go by, they relax. Then they start living their lives like they didn’t do anything wrong. Like they didn’t spend somebody else’s life in order to get what they got. They think they’re safe from retribution. You make those bastards unsafe. That’s why I’m nice to you.
“Well, I didn’t know anything about cereal inventing, either, Carla. And yet if it wasn’t for a certain harshly-worded cease and desist letter, we’d all be eating J.D.’s Bananas & Nuts.”
“You’re not friends. You’ll never be friends. You’ll be in love till it kills you both. You’ll fight, and you’ll shag, and you’ll hate each other till it makes you quiver, but you’ll never be friends. Love isn’t brains, children, it’s blood … blood screaming inside you to work its will. I may be love’s bitch, but at least I’m man enough to admit it.”
