Bob Hearts Abishola - 1. Gloria: “Hey, you want to give up, give up.” Dottie: “I don’t want to give up. I want to complain until you give up.” Gloria: “Honey, it’s your life. You want to spend it on wheels, be my guest. Enjoy the good parking.” Dottie: “I know what you’re doing - mind games to make me prove you wrong.” Gloria: “Maybe. Maybe I just don’t care.” Dottie: “You’re good.” 2. Dottie, about Bob: “You think he’s soft, don’t you?” Abishola: “Only because he has never had to be anything else.” Dottie: “Abishola, I love you but you don’t know what the hell you’re talking about.” Abishola: “He cries when the plane flies over the football field before the game starts.” Dottie: “So he’s sensitive. That doesn’t mean he’s weak. You didn’t see him after his father’s funeral, when he told me he was leaving college so we wouldn’t have to shut down the company. A 20-year-old kid learning the business on the fly. He’s the one that kept this family afloat.” Abishola: “I did not know.” Dottie: “Well, now you do and don’t you ever forget it.” Abishola: “Perhaps I underestimated your children.” Dottie: “No, no, no, just Bob. The other two are as worthless as my left arm.” 3. Abishola: “Bob said his mother paid him when he did well in school. I thought maybe it was an American thing.” Gloria: “It’s a white thing. First, they pay the kid. Then, they pay the tutor and if the kid’s still an idiot, they just pay the school.” 4. Abishola: “We have to find someway to reduce your stress.” Bob: “Don’t worry. We will.” Abishola: “I do worry. I don’t want to lose you.” 5. Abishola: “Why have I never heard the story of what you did for your family?” Bob: “What are you talking about?” Abishola: “How there would be no company if it were not for you.” Bob: “I don’t know if I’d put it that way.” Abishola: “That’s the way your mother puts it.” Bob: “Really? Was she drinking brandy? Brandy makes her nice.” 6. Bob, after Abishola calls a family meeting about lowering his stress level and they all start bickering: “You’re right. That helped a lot.” Abishola: “I’m shocked you’re not dead already.” (Dahne)
Magnum P.I. - 1. Rick [re the span wrestling]: " Everybody loves Jell-O wrestling. This is the same thing just with a... local flair. First event is next weekend and guess who's facing off mano-a-mano: Me and you my friend." TC: "That ain't happening." Rick: "What, you scared?" TC: "Of rolling around in a gelatinous mean product? Yes." Rick: "Yeah, it sounds pretty gross." 2. Rick: "Oh, God, I'd love to, but, you now, the bar it's slamming... right now..." Magnum: "Come on, if you're gonna lie, at least make it believable." 3. Higgins: "What did you mean earlier?" Magnum: "I'm sorry you're gonna have to be a little more specific than that." Higgins: "About the background check. About how it says more about me that it does about Ethan." Magnum: "Well I think you're just... looking for a reason to pull the rip cord before it even has a chance to be something." Higgins: "And why would I do that?" Magnum: "You don't want to get hurt. And after everything that's happened, I can't say I blame you. Look the law of averages says it's probably not gonna work our with this guy anyway, but, I think you owe to yourself to at least give it a chance." 4. Magnum: "TC, I love you but you're a terrible liar. You're too honest. Alright? You're just too honest." TC: "Yeah, that might be true. But ain't nothing I wouldn't do to protect my family. Including lying." 5. Katsumoto: "What took you so long to pick up.?" Magnum: "We tried to get downstairs." Katsumoto: "Of course you did, because I told you to stay where you were." Magnum: "Gordy if I start listening to you now, it's gonna throw our whole dynamic out of whack." 6. Magnum [to Teeney]: "I could explain." Higgins: "Hard to imagine you can make it any worse." Magnum: "It was my fault. Higgins didn't want any part of it, neither did TC. I was the one who came up with the whole fake marriage scheme. And, um, Higgy thought that because we were partners we wouldn't be able to pull it off, so I essentially forced her to marry TC. And this whole thing spiraled out of control because of my stupidity. And to make it worse when I found out you were onto us I turned around and blamed them, because I couldn't accept the fact that... I was the one who put this whole thing in motion. And that Higgins would-would maybe have to leave us. But I did that because, I mean... this is my family." Higgins: "Was that an apology, Magnum?" (Folie-lex)

Eric, after telling Deeks that he plans to use the money he’s made to end homelessness in CA: “You think I’m crazy, don’t you?” Deeks: “I mean, have you looked at you lately? Cause you’re riding a unicycle, your glasses look like a Bono tribute band, and you’re growing a Tribble on your face, so yeah. Yeah, I think that you’re crazy, but let’s be honest. You’ve got to be crazy to change the world, right?” Eric: “A lot of people need our help right now. We’re the lucky ones.” Deeks: “Yes, yes, we are the lucky ones. My brother, we are.” (Dahne)
