But this little tail end where he tries to give her advice but knows all he can offer is support was the sweetest. (Folie-lex)
4. Mari: “This is your grandfather’s rosary. I want you to say 3 Hail Marys before the plane takes off.” Natalie: “Ma…” Mari: “What?” Natalie: “Do you hear yourself?” Mari: “Let me ask you, Miss Sabelotodo.

I was shaving my legs, like, twice a month.” Luis: “That is crazy.” Jackie: “You know it’s only when I hear something funny or really sad that I miss it.” Luis: “Miss what?” Jackie: “Just having someone that gets why it’s funny or sad. Never mind.” Luis: “When you catch a firefly and you hold it a moment to capture the light, then just before you let it go, you turn because you want someone else to see it. That’s when I miss it.

FBI: Most Wanted -
1. Hana: “There’s no ‘we’ here. I’m moving forward, right past you. You told my buddy the other day that you think I secretly dig your attention, which made me realize that you have been operating in the dark. That you have no concept of what your intention has done to me, the impact that it’s had on my life.” Jack: “Hana, I know…” Hana: “No, you don’t know, so now you need to hear me. After our one date, after a month of your constant attention - your texts and emails and buzzing my apartment day and night - I started having migraines. I’d get nauseous, sick to my stomach just to see an email in my inbox from you. Only 3 months later, I had an outbreak of eczema. I haven’t had eczema since I was eight. Then my period stopped. The doctor said it was all stress related. Here, I brought the doctor’s bills in case you don’t believe me. I was diagnosed with anxiety disorder. I had to go on medication. I saw 3 different therapists. I was afraid. I carry a gun and I was afraid all the time because you made me afraid.” Jack: “I didn’t want to make you feel that…” (Dahne and Folie-lex)
2. Hana: “Maybe you thought that attention was sexy. It wasn’t. Maybe you thought it showed that you cared. It didn’t. Whatever you intended, it did the opposite and now you know.” Jack: “You’ve got to let me defend myself.” Hana: “No, I don’t. You’re not entitled to anything from me. My life is my life. You’re not a part of it. You were never a part of it. You’ll never be a part of it. You’re done with me, Jack, and I’m done with you.” (Dahne and Folie-lex)
2. Kenny: “How much do you have to p** off an 8-year-old to make him stalk you?” (Dahne)

God Friended Me -
Episode 2.21 -
1. Alphonse: “If you ever figure out who’s behind it, please pass along my profound gratitude.” Miles: “Honestly, I’ve stopped looking. It’s kind of like CJ and his angel. As long as I’m doing good, does it really matter who’s whispering in my ear?” Alphonse: “No, it doesn’t.” ~~I agree completely with this sentiment and I am glad that it ended without a definitive answer.
2. Miles: “In today’s world, we see technology as a modern day miracle, but only when we use it to help others can it become one, when it reconnects us with people we needed to find to become the person we needed to be. But no matter how hard it is, when we choose to help or listen or forgive one another, those simple acts of kindness can change someone’s life in a way that can only be described as a miracle.”
3. Miles: “Corey, I know how difficult the idea of letting Alphonse back into your life may be, but we’re talking about your son. And if you can’t do this for CJ, the fracture that is already happening between you two...it’s only gonna grow, and I know you don’t want that to happen.” Corey: “Of course not, but you’re acting like forgiveness is some kind of choice.” Miles: “Isn’t it?” (Dahne)

Episode 2.22 -
1. Miles: “Dad, we can’t lose her.” Arthur: “I know, son.” Miles: “Dad, you know, I...I...I should’ve been here. I should have stopped it, but I wasn’t.” Arthur: “This is not your fault. There is no way anyone could have prevented this, but we are not going to lose her.” Miles: “No, you don’t know that.” Arthur: “Maybe I don’t, but I have faith.” Miles: “Faith. Hmm? Faith? That is not going to help her get through this.” Arthur: “It’s time like these I wish I could give you your faith back so that you could see that there is hope, that there is something you can do to help yourself get through this and to help Ali get through it.” Miles: “What can I possibly do to help her?” Arthur: “The same thing I’m gonna do. Pray.” Miles: “Dad…” Arthur: “I know how you feel, but prayer is action and prayer is what your sister needs right now.”
2. Ali: “Do you remember when I was ten and had to have my appendix out? I remember the doctor coming in and talking to you about having to get me into surgery right away. When I asked you what was gonna happen, do you remember what you said?” Arthur: “I told you that the doctors were going to put you to sleep but when you woke up, everything was gonna be fine.” Ali: “You promised me. You said you’d be the first person I saw when I woke up. Dad, I need you to make that promise again. I need to hear it.” Arthur: “Everything IS going to be okay. I’m gonna be right here when you wake up - the very first person that you see. I promise.”
3. Cara’s Mom: “Take it from me, nothing threatens a family more than keeping secrets.” (Dahne)

2. Kumu: “You know, I feel guilty about not planning a bachelorette party for you.” Higgins: “Kumu, do I really strike you as someone who is willing to place singles inside a G-string whilst wearing a pornographic crown?” Kumu: “I guess that's more me, huh?” (Folie-lex)
3. TC: “It could be good for you, Murph.” Rick: “Hey listen, I’m giving you a shot. You got to take a chance on yourself.” Murph: “I just don’t believe anymore.” TC: “You are Master Gunnery Sergeant Sean Murphy. You made us into Marines, into men. You believed in us when we didn’t believe in ourselves. Now we’re gonna believe in you until you get there.” ~~~I have been thinking of dropping Magnum PI for a while now, but I’m glad I didn’t if only for the whole scene this quote came in. (Dahne)
4. Jin: “Hang on. What? Someone did all the legwork, risked their freedom, got away with, and then just gave all the stuff away?” Magnum: “Yeah, kind of like a modern day Robin Hood.” Jin: “More like a modern day idiot. As a former thief, I’m deeply offended.” (Folie-lex and Dahne)
5. Rick: “You know, I spent most of my adult life with a rifle in my hand and I didn’t know who I was gonna be without that. You know, I didn’t know if I would ever figure out who that guy was. It took some time but I did. You know, I had to fake it a lot. I tried to stay busy, you know, but I had my buddies and turned out pretty good.” Murph: “I’m happy for you but I’m not like you. I’m not. I appreciate you guys trying to help me, I really do, but if I was to get that job and screw it up. I mean you vouched for me.” Rick: “Hey, I’d do it all over again. So would this guy.” TC: “Hell yeah.” (Dahne)

2. Paul: “I don’t want (Bow) to feel that pain.” Harrison: “If you had never felt that pain, you never would have wanted to fight in the first place. When you stop shielding her from all the things she’s gonna have to fix, you’re gonna see that she’s a fighter just like you were.” Paul: “Thanks, dad.” Harrison: “For pointing out what a lousy father you’re being? Anytime.” ~~I maintain he is a lot wiser on the parenting stuff... just not the most tactful. (Folie-lex)

I don’t take joining a family too lightly.” Callen: “Neither do we, for a lot of reasons.” Roundtree: “Thank you.” Callen: “And just so you know, if you decide to join, you won’t be immediate family.” Sam: “More like a second cousin.” Callen: “Yeah, once removed.”
2. Roundtree, after being threatened to be tortured by the Taliban: “Paperwork sounds really dope right about now.”
3. Callen to Sam: “This is your call, but if you ever wanted this to go away, now is the time.” Roundtree: “I know this isn’t my place, but if the truth is what matters…” Sam: “The truth is all that matters. I’m not dropping this that fast.” (Dahne)

3. Jessica: “You’re using my cashmere throw like it’s a paper towel.” (Kath M)
4. Martin: “Leaving all that DNA on the body? Very sloppy, son. You’ve got to clean up after yourself. It’s the first rule of killing...and kindergarten.” (Dahne)
5. Malcolm: “I’m...I’m sorry for everything my father did to you. For a long time, you were all I could think about - if you were real, if you were alive, if you were okay. And how I’m sorry that I couldn’t save you.” Sophie: “You were only a kid.” Malcolm: “I understand why you killed Eddie, but if I don’t find the real person who killed him I could go to prison for the rest of my life, which is why it’s such a shame I couldn’t find you. Came all this way, all the clues got me here, but I guess they were wrong. Not every case gets solved.” (Dahne)
6. Martin: “I love you both and being your father has been the best part of my life. You have been the best part…” Ainsley: “Stop. I don’t want to hear any last words. You are the Surgeon. You are the smartest one in here. Start acting like it.” ~~Ainsley is fierce in this episode and it was spell-binding. (Dahne)

2. Jackson: “I just want to put it out there that you’re completely disobeying a direct order from the Watch Commander.” Lopez: “Grey just wants me to play nice, but how I act isn’t going to matter to a geek who only looks at numbers. I need to convince him that there’s data that he’s not factoring into his algorithm.” Jackson: “And if he gets caught in the crossfire?” Lopez: “Problem solved.” (Folie-lex)
3. Thomas: “Nah, lady cop’s right. I’m no one to be proud of.” Hector: “How can you say that? You run things in here. People respect you.” Thomas: “No, they’re afraid of me. That ain’t the same thing.” (Folie-lex)

Clearly I don’t.” (Dahne)
2. Sheldon: “Now you don’t want me to go to college either?” George: “Didn’t say that.

And when she got sick, I was working my way up through the ranks at Google, trying as hard as I could to get to the next level and on the night she died….um, I was preparing my presentation for the Google smart pencil.
