  • I'm amazed you didn't mention the time Gillian Darmody redefined a mother's love.

  • In reply to Andrew Daglas:

    Ah, good times. We've all been there.

  • Or that time that one zombie on Walking Dead did that one thing, and then Cop Dude brooded for 35 minutes.

  • In reply to Andrew Daglas:

    And then the time on Vampire Diaries when Ian Somerhalder looked smoldering.

  • Timothy Olyphant on Justified delivering a very Elmore Leonard-like line
    "Bad? What do you mean he's bad? Bad like heads in a duffel bag or, is he just an asshole?"

  • In reply to gvon:

    John just started catching up on Justified. Someday he will understand that quote in context. I, however, will settle for appreciating it on its own merit.

  • Temperance told Seeley they were pregnant on BONES.
