Quotation Marks – Community, Glee and House

Take a look back at the week in quotes as the Clique shares some of our favorites. If we missed yours, share it in the comments!

I’m afraid, boys and girls, that Community might be coming in for a landing. There’s only one episode left before the show goes on “hiatus” (Is that anything like Tony Kornheiser’s many “vacations” from ESPN)? In the mean time, though, Community keeps turning out quality episode that keeps all 10 of us fans of the show laughing our rears off. Here are some of the best quotes from this week’s episode, as well as the rest of the week’s television. Did we miss one of your favorites? Let us know in the comments!

Community (Review)

“Gentlemen. My name is Clarence Thaddeus Foos. My grandfather, Fletcher Morton Foos, invented this game for one purpose: to have the loudest, dumbest thing happen. Now, it has. The game of foosball is completed. You’re free to return to your undoubtedly hearing-impaired families.” – Jeff

“Why would someone assume I’m a friend of Ellen just because I’m mannish, and highly aggressive, and have short hair, and I only wear track suits, and I coach a girls’ sport, and I married myself? It just doesn’t make sense.” — Sue’s diary entry

“My mom is going on a Christian wine-tasting boat down the Ohio River on Friday.” — Quinn

My favorite Community quote was when the German said: “I wish there was a word to describe the pleasure I find in your misfortune.”

That cracked me up.

Love that too, but given the state of our educational system today, perhaps you’d better include a description of the concept of ‘schadenfreude’…:)
