A weekly feature highlighting the best quotes on TV as picked by the SpoilerTV team. We'd love to hear your picks too so please sound off in the comments below.



American Housewife -
1. Greg, about Ana-Kat: “So, she’s officially a tween. I hate the yelling, but I do enjoy the part where they think they’ve discovered The Beatles.” (Folie-lex)
2. Greg: “Taylor you’ve completed your list except for this, and that’s close enough. You have my permission to go to the prom.” Trip: “Whoo! We’re going to prom!” Taylor: “No.” Trip: “What? I thought I was finally getting the hang of conversations.” (Folie-lex)
3. Greg: “What happened to ‘bullying builds character?’ “ Katie: “You didn’t marry me for my consistency, Greg! You married me for a body that you foolishly thought would stay the same after kids! That’s on you.” (Folie-lex)
4. Oliver: “But I’ve gotta say, this new empathetic version of me? I don’t care for it.” (Folie-lex)



The Baker and the Beauty -
1. Mari, about Natalie: “I’m just trying to give her, her space, Rafael.” Rafael: “You give her any more, she’ll be living in another state, Mari.” Mari: “I don’t know what to say to her. I’m scared I’m gonna say the wrong thing.” Rafael: “You’re her mother. Of course, you’re gonna say the wrong thing, and then you’ll say exactly what she needs to hear.” (Folie-lex)
2. Lewis: “Correct me if I’m wrong. You’re turning down interviews, so I’m not asking you to do anything you’re not already doing. I just think you should be rewarded for your loyalty. You took a big swing and it ended in a botched proposal that went viral. That was embarrassing. And then Noa winds up with Daniel after you break up with him? That sucks too. So now what? You can move on with your life, and get something out of this. You’re an industrious woman. You’ll probably take this seed money and in a decade from now, you’ll run an empire. Trust me, you never know when life is gonna throw you a curveball.” Vanessa: “I’m sorry. I’m not for sale.” (Folie-lex)
3. Mateo: “I’m not throwing money away. In fact, I’m investing in myself.” (Folie-lex)



Blindspot -
~~~Bill Nye the Science Guy made another guest appearance as Patterson's father. He is unexpectedly entertaining as he helps his daughter figure out how to disarm a bomb.

1. Henchman: “You expect me to believe this is a hearing aid?” Bill Nye: “What!?” (Prpleight)
2. Patterson: “Dad, go. You don't need to be here for this.” Bill: “And, what, let you have all the fun? Besides, if you get blown up and I don't, what am I gonna say to your mother? Now, this is my chance to feel the thrill of cutting the red wire with just one second left on the timer.” (Prpleight)
3. Patterson: “Rich, did you get that?” Rich: “Of course, I got it. You two are my new favorite podcast.” (Prpleight)



Broke -
1. Javier: “Luis, please give a brief explanation of la pedida de mano.” Luis: “La pedida de mano is the time honoured tradition of asking the father for his daughter’s hand in marriage. It involves many fruits and cheeses presented on a finely woven table cloth. There are blessings, speeches, and songs, all culminating in the promise to love, honour, and cherish his future bride into eternity.” Jackie: “That was the brief explanation?” Luis: “Oh, yes. I didn’t mention the lasso, the 13 coins, the carriage ride through the town square…” Jackie: “And yet you just did.” (Folie-lex)
2. Sammy: “Something happened today. There is this kid at school, Nico…” Luis: “AH! I hate him already! Sorry, I have a sense where this is going.” (Folie-lex)
3. Luis: “Are we talking nice about our fathers?!” Lizzie: “The wine is making us soft! I am not ready to let him off the hook!” Luis: “Well, I am not ready to stop drinking so let's just power through this!” (Folie-lex)



The Flash -
1. Caitlin Snow: "Maybe instead of focusing on what you've lost, you should try remembering what you'll never lose. The reason you beat Zoom, Godspeed, Thawne is because speed isn't what drives you. It's love. That's your true force, and there is nothing artificial about that. So as long as you stay true to yourself, you will always find a way to beat the bad guys...and gals." (Chris)



How To Get Away with Murder -
1. Annalise: “I stand before you, mask off, to tell you God’s honest. I have done many a bad thing. I’ve coerced witnesses, got clients to lie on the stand, bullied students to tears, manipulated jurors like you, but those are not the crimes I’m being tried for. It’s murder, and I am no murderer. What I am is a survivor. I survived getting taunted by the N-word when I was in grade school. I survived a sexual abuse by my uncle when I was 11. I survived losing my first love, Eve, because I was scared to be gay. Then the death of my son in a car accident, the murder of my husband, then alcoholism, depression, grief, and every death leading up to this trial. But today you decide, am I a bad person? Well, the mask is off, so I’m gonna say yes. But am I the mastermind criminal who pulled off a series of violent murders? Hell, no! Who I am is a 53-year-old woman from Memphis, Tennessee, named Anna May Harkness. I’m ambitious, black, bisexual, angry, sad, strong, sensitive, scared, fierce, talented, exhausted...and I am at your mercy.” ~~~ It’s time for Annalise’s closing statement at her own trial. It encapsulates so well who she is and this monologue alone is gonna make Viola Davis one of the strongest Emmy contenders, in my opinion. Thank you for 6 wonderful years, Viola. (Lip)



Man with a Plan -
1. Alice: “You know that I love you like a son, and you’ve been so wonderful to me from the first moment that we met.” Adam: “I...I think you misunderstood. I was just trying to sleep with your daughter.” (Folie-lex)
2. Adam: “Go out, get drunk, say a bunch of things you can’t take back!! Act like a family for God’s sakes!” (Folie-lex)
3. Adam: “I tried that, but she bewitched me with sex.” Don: “Wives will do that. That’s why I don’t have a snowmobile. Or a say in anything.” (Folie-lex)



Penny Dreadful: City of Angels -
1. Raul: “I’d rather be any f*** thing in this world than Tiago. He’s not one of us. He’s not one of them. He’s a cop. He’s a Chicano. He doesn’t know what the f*** he is. You want to see hell, hermano? You look in his eyes...and you be kind.” (Folie-lex)
2. Brian: “They’ll kill me.” Lewis: “Hell son, what do you think I’m gonna do? I just kidnapped you, broke your teeth, kicked the f*** out of your nose, and now I’m gonna throw you off this cliff where the damn coyotes will eat you. I swear to God they will.” Brian: “Go ahead. It would be the best thing that happened to me all week.” Lewis: “So tell me about it. I’m a cop. I’m here to serve and protect. Come on, don’t make me hurt you. I had about the worst week of my life too...and believe me when a Jew says that, it f*** means something.” (Folie-lex)



The Rookie -
1. Nolan: “I’ve been going back and forth in my head for days: Do I give you your space or do I tell you how I feel? I know how much you love your son. I know you’d do anything to make him happy, but I’ve been down this road. I’ve stayed together for the kid, and it’s a mistake.” Grace: “Please don’t. I mean this is so hard for me to do.” Nolan: “Grace, I love you. That has to matter.” (Folie-lex)
2. Nolan: “Now I know that was a lie. A lie you told yourself because the truth was too painful.” Armstrong: “What's the truth?” Nolan: “You're a coward. You weren't there for Rebecca because you were too weak to watch her suffer, so you blame the job. Same way you blame your debts for becoming a criminal and a murderer. It doesn't matter that you fell down. Everybody falls down. What matters is what comes next. Do you make it right or do you just make it worse?” Armstrong: “You know what your problem is John? You think you're better than people.” Nolan: “No. Just you.” (Folie-lex)



Roswell, New Mexico -
1. Liz: “Kyle and I not only used to date, we also share a sister. Yeah, my mom, his dad, a torrid affair in the ‘80s.” Steph: “Oh, so you’re not related?” Liz: “Oh.” Kyle: “Oh...uh, we figured...” Liz: “Yeah, we’re good. I compared our DNA.” Kyle: “You did?” Liz: “Hi, I’m Liz. Have we met?” (Jamie)
2. Liz: “Isobel, where is Max?” Isobel: “Kyle’s mom arrested him for, I don’t know, kidnapping, or murder or kicking puppies. I don’t know; I couldn’t tell you.” (Jamie)
3. Liz: “The fryers are off, my friend, and I’m only turning them back on if your day was worse than ours.” (Jamie)

Vida -
1. Emma: “I thought we said we weren’t going to see him.” Lyn: “Em, I don’t want to split hairs with you on this, especially with how you’re feeling right now, but YOU said we weren’t going to see him. You made that decision for both of us.” (Folie-lex)



What We Do in the Shadows -
1. Nandor: “We are playing a game that Guillermo made up.” Guillermo: “It’s not a game.” Nandor: “We have been burying bodies out here for ages, thus creating sink spots.” Guillermo: “It’s caused by decomposing human cadavers.” Nandor: “It’s a wonderful game.” Guillermo: “It’s a safety hazard.” Nandor: "I’m winning!” (Folie-lex)
2. Jim the Vampire: “I can see by the look on your face, you were never expecting to see me again.” Lazlo: “No, you can see by the look on my face, I haven’t got a f*** clue who the hell you are.” (Folie-lex)
