Banshee -

The Flash -
1. Cisco: "I think you mean... The Reverse Flash. What? He said it. Not me. And, he's right. Yellow suit, red lightning, and evil. The reverse of Barry." Caitlin: "Meh." Wells: "Actually, I kinda like it." (Bradley Adams)

Galavant -
1. Princess Isabella: "Break your vow, or I break your pipe." ~What a sassy moment from Isabella. (Laura Markus)

(Dahne) ~This line makes me laugh so hard because I felt the same way myself. Anytime a character keeps emoangsting about feelings, it feels like torture to me.

2. Penguin: "Hello Fish." (Bradley Adams)



Grimm -
1. Prosecutor: "Do you deny that you yourself have helped the Grimm?" Bud: "Have I helped the Grimm? Well, let me think. Yeah, I have." Prosecutor: "And you have no regrets for doing so?" Bud: "The only regret I have is that I can't help him now because boy would he have a field day here." (Dahne) ~I love how Bud, even though he could face death next, stands up for Monroe and Nick. He was a true hero in this episode.
2. Hank: "Damn." (Dahne) ~This one is all in the delivery. Hank chases down a hate group Wesen and tells him to stop but he runs right into Renard, who hexenibiests out and promptly kills him. This was Hank's response and I laughed so hard.



Helix -
1. Sarah: "You owe me an explanation... and you owe our baby." Alan: "Our what? Are you saying we have a child?" Sarah: "No Alan, there's no child." Alan: "I'm so sorry." Sarah: "There's no child because I'm still pregnant. I've been pregnant for the last 15 months." (Darth Locke)

Well, if you knew anything, you'd know that Bash and I were lovers." (Sandi)
2. Catherine: "I told you that I protected you, that I cared for you, and I did. And that is why I lied for you. And so convincingly that you've come to believe it to be true. I suppose there are other monsters in the world. Their mothers have to lie for them, too." (Sandi)

1. Victoria : "You don't put a majestic peacock in a cage with a howler monkey." (Sharon Seymour)

2. Railly: "Who are you trying to kill this time?"
3. Ramse: "Do you guys have any idea what you're doing?" Jones: "Mr. Ramse, listen to me. Mr. Cole's name was on the recording made 30 years ago. Fate gave your friend this mission.

3. Jamal: "You don't have to understand me. You don't have to understand me or have anything to do with me. I'm a man…a man. So you can keep that stupid a** song and your money and whatever else that Lucious Lyon thinks that he owns. My obedience is no longer for sale."

Eye Candy -
1. Lindy: "Okay I had plans to meet him at a restaurant and he just showed up with groceries. I couldn't exactly tell him to leave." Sophia: "Yes, you could. Who just shows up with groceries? That is definitely weird. I need you to be straight up with me. Is there a serial killer in my house right now?"
2. Sergeant: "Murderer, maybe. Husband material, not so much."
3. Connor: "Look I get it. This beautiful man might be hiding something. He might not be who he says he is. He could totally mess with your life. It sounds a lot like dating in New York."

3. Wu: "I don't know what you are, but you're no Aswang."
4. Monroe: "You call this a tribunal. Well I have a problem with that because a tribunal implies that you have the authority to judge and in order to judge, you have to know the difference between right and wrong and you don't because this is wrong, and whatever you do to any of us will never make it right and it will not change anything. What is right is my love for my wife and her love for me. That you will never be able to destroy."

3. Caleb: "How long do you have?" Julia: "I don't know. Days maybe." Caleb: "Then why bother?" Julia: "Because the other choice is doing nothing and that's unacceptable."

KC Undercover -
1. KC: "Stand back, alright. I watch reality shows. I will scratch your eyes out and scar you emotionally."
2. KC's Mom: "I get it, sweetheart. It's not easy leading a double life." KC: "I'm 16. I haven't even figured out how to live one life."
3. KC: "Morning mom. Hey I need my permission slip signed for the field trip next week. No slip, no trip. No trip, I flip."

The Librarians -
1. Baird: "You are planning on selling out the human race, aren't you?" Ezekiel: "I will absolutely sell out the human race to our new alien overlords. Don't fight them. They know what's best for us."
2. Flynn: "Jenkins, you're a genius." Jenkins: "One is aware, sir."
3. Ezekiel: "He's not taking this very well. Who is he?" Baird: "The Librarian." Ezekiel: "The way my year's been going, he's welcome to the job."
4. Baird: "I'll tell you what, we'll just fill in the crack you're about to make about us and intelligent life. Just skip right to the job." Jenkins: "Are you sure? It was quite cutting." Baird: "I promise to be properly offended. I mean I probably wouldn't even have understood it at first but I'll be offended later." Jenkins: "Where's the fun in that?"

2. PotUS: "Everyone lies, Charleston. It's always those closest to us whose betrayal we can't see."
3. David: "I think that this presidency was built on a promise that's not being delivered. Ar Rissalah is winning. Madam President, I know that you are a compassionate woman but right now we don't need to hear from that side of you. Right now we need the soldier." Marshall: "What exactly are suggesting, David.? That the soldier in her bomb the entire Middle East in retaliation." David: "Military strategy wasn't a prerequisite for me getting my job. It was for her."

Supernatural -
1. Megatron: "What are you doing there, slugger?" Dean: "I'm settling a score that's taken way too long to settle.
