Quotation Marks – Castle, Modern Family and New Girl

Join the Clique as we look back at the week that was, and share our favorite TV quotes. If we missed your favorite, be sure to share it in the comments!

On one hand, May is one of the best TV months of the whole year. BIG things are going on, from births to deaths, departures to surprise returns and, of course, the occasional confession and consummation of love. Unfortunately, May also means that it is time to look to the summer, where there is considerably less “new” content on the air. We shall get through it together, gentlereaders. In the meantime, here are are our favorite quotes from the week that was.

Castle (Review)

“How? Because of everything we’ve been through together! Four years I’ve been right here. Four years just waiting for you to open your eyes to see that I’m right here. And I’m more than a partner. Every morning I bring you a cup of coffee just so I can see a smile on your face because I think you are the most remarkable, maddening, challenging, frustrating person I’ve ever met. And I love you Kate. …” – Castle

“I remember I was on Pirates of the Caribbean and this whole fight with DeDe was really eating at me and there was this angry animatronic wench with a rolling pin chasing some poor pirate around. They were on a track, running in circles, so he could never get away from her. And I remember thinking, ‘I can’t save you buddy, but I’m getting off this ride.’” — Jay

“Fake money has changed you. Where is the Manny that used to stop to smell the roses?” — Gloria

“You have been so busy burying your face in your phone that you barely said hello to your family, you gave Winnie the Pooh the cold shoulder and you haven’t even noticed that pretty girl in the blue elephant that has been smiling at you.” — Gloria

“I don’t know what happened. Maybe it’s what robot Lincoln said about a man’s duty or keeping the union together. Maybe I just chickened out. But I realized that staying with my kids was more important than leaving my wife. Now, that’s not the right decision for everyone but it was the right decision for me. So, I stuck it out ‘til they were grown …” — Jay
“Jay, you want to join me in the Jacuzzi?” — Gloria

“When I eat Fruit Loops, the other astronauts make fun of me.” — Howard

“Would you like some aloe vera? You just got burned.” — Sheldon (to Penny)

“Fine, I’ll do it in English but it loses something. The need to find another human being to share one’s life with has always puzzled me. Maybe because I’m so interesting all by myself. With that being said, may you find as much happiness with each other as I find on my own. The Klingon would have made you cry. ” – Sheldon
