Quotation Marks – The Amazing Race, Modern Family and Fringe

Join the Clique as we take a look back at the week in quotes, television style!

The Clique came together this week to present you with our favorite television quotes. Yes, this is another week where we have nothing from CBS Sunday Morning, something that I know brings people flocking to this post week after week. But as there is no “I” in CliqueClack — or, at least not more than one — I will not throw any particular Clacker under the bus for the transgression (cough cough … Michael … cough cough).

As always, please enjoy! And, if we missed one of your favorites, please share it with us in the comments!

The Amazing Race (Review)

“How old are you? Are you like 38?” — Rachel to Vanessa during a childish argument
“Yes, I’m 38, and somehow I still look younger than you.” — Vanessa

“Pretty sure I am, Dickwad!” – House

How I Met Your Mother (Review)

[To Barney] This is about the fact that you don’t think this relationship is going to last. That’s why you don’t want to throw anything out; because when that inevitable breakup comes, you don’t want to buy new mugs.” – Lily
“That’s why I’ve never thrown anything out for any relationship ever. [To the empty seat beside her]Isn’t that right honey? [Back to the group] Oh, that’s right, I’m alone.” – Robin

“Watch the entire Star Wars trilogy all the way through because I haven’t done that in like five years.” – Ted
“Dude, you can’t let that happen. If you’re not tril-ling it at least every three years, the dark side wins.” – Marshall
“OK, let’s make a pact. No matter what, every three years, we sit down and tril-it-up big time. Agreed?” – Ted
“A-Greedo.” – Marshall

“Your life’s not that bad.” – Ted
“Dude, I manage a Structure.” – Marshall
“But you get 10% off vests; that’s something.” – Ted
“The vests are pretty sweet.” – Marshall

“Dude, we’ve been to the Lusty Leopard, we’ve seen plenty.” – Marshall
“I kinda walked into that one, alright bye bye!” – Barney

Bones (Review)

“I told the [day care] director to send a photo every half an hour.” – Brennan
“Wow, I didn’t know they did that.” – Cam

“Really? A lot?” – Hodgins
“On the bones of a deer that was snagged by a pickup and dragged a few miles.” – Finn
“I miss so much growing up in the city.” – Hodgins

[Looking at a picture of baby Christine] Awww, she’s cuter than a june bug in a jumpsuit.” – Finn
“I’ve never seen that so I can’t make the comparison.” – Brennan

The Voice (Review)

“I don’t know how to feel about the whole thing that was happening up there … it’s a little evil … hellish. For me I don’t know, I was so wrapped up in whatever that was that it was harder for me to concentrate on the music …” — Blake on Tony Vincent’s weird performers gyrating in the background while he sang

“Here we go again with the male strippers. What the hell does that have to do with this?” — Blake on Erin’s staging

“I think Blake just bought a one-way ticket to Boner Town.” — Adam responding to Blake’s comment above

30 Rock (Review)

“I know The Woggels! My 8 year old niece walked down the aisle to that song at her wedding.” – Kenneth

“This cake has vegetables in it. Like a salad bar, Robert. How do I get this taste out of my mouth?” – Kevin

Modern Family (Review)

“I can see Clairely now that Duane is gone.” — Cam

“You don’t have to be clairvoyant to know who to vote for.  Vote Dunphy for Town Council.  Uh … Claire Dunphy.  Claire’s her first name.  I’m sorry if that wasn’t Claire.” — Mitchell

“Town Councilwoman Dunphy, how do you respond to allegations that you look super sexy in your new suit?” — Phil
“I haven’t been elected yet.  Come on kids, we gotta vote.  Honey, come on.  Please stop filming.” — Claire
“I’m just excited.  After today, you are going to be a town councilwoman and I am going to be a first husband.” — Phil
“If you don’t stop filming, you’re going to be my first husband.” — Claire

 “Claire likes to win.  When she was eight, a little Girl Scout friend of hers bragged she could sell the most cookies.  Damn if Claire didn’t walk the neighborhood ‘til she got blisters on her feet and won by 10 boxes.  Best part is, Claire wasn’t even a Girl Scout.” — Jay

“Oh my God, there’s Sandy.” — Mitchell
“Sandra Bullock?” — Cam
“Yeah, Sandra Bullock.  We’re such good friends I call her Sandy, so.  No, Sandy who works at Lily’s pre-school.”  — Mitchell
“Oh, yeah.  You know she got engaged?” — Cam
“Nooo, to the gay boyfriend?” — Mitchell
“Totally.” — Cam
“Oh, how does she not see it?” — Mitchell
“If I was with somebody that gorgeous, I’d overlook a few quirks too.” — Cam
“First of all, thank you.  Second of all, point well-taken.  Poor Sandy.  I feel so bad for her.” — Mitchell
“It’s better than being alone.” — Cam
“Is it?” — Mitchell

“We see a great looking guy like Gregory and we say he’s gay because we want him to be gay.” — Mitchell
“Really, really are you sure?” — Sandy
“Absolutely.  Look at what we do with movie stars.  You know, Hugh Jackman.  He sings, he dances, he’s dreamy, so obviously we would want him on our team but he’s straight.  Trust me, I know.  I said hello to him once in a restaurant and there was absolutely no chemistry.” — Cam
“Well, if that isn’t proof.” — Mitchell
“Three weeks later, Sandy and Gregory got married and everyone said the wedding was beautiful.” — Cam
“Gregory did the flowers … which is perfectly normal for a straight guy.” — Mitchell

“Dear Miss Dunphy, we regret to inform you … While we cannot offer you admission at this time, you are a promising candidate and therefore we would like to place you on our wait list.  Oh my God, I got waitlisted!” — Haley
“We will take it!” — Claire
“Our daughter might be going to college!” — Phil
