james spader the blacklist anslo garrick 'The Blacklist' and more best lines of Thanksgiving weekAnother week of TV has gone by and while there weren’t a lot of new shows out there this week, Zap2it has still collected the best dialogue from the week of Nov. 24-30.

“The Blacklist”:

Red: “Allies today, enemies tomorrow. The world is a complicated place.”

Liz: “This’ll be faster if we split up.”
Aram: “And scarier.”

Red: “Have you ever sailed across an ocean, Donald? On a sail boat surrounded by sea with no land in sight. Without even the possibility of sighting land for days to come. To stand at the helm of your destiny. I want that, one more time. I want to be in the Piazza Del Campo in Sienna. To feel the surge as ten race horses go thundering by. I want another meal in Paris, at L’Ambroisie in the Place Des Vosges. I want another bottle of wine. And then another. I want the warmth of a women in the cool set of sheets. One more night of jazz at the Vanguard. I want to stand on summits and smoke cubans and feel the sun on my face for as long as I can. Walk on the wall again. Climb the tower. Ride the river. Stare at the frescoes. I want to sit in the garden and read one more good book. Most of all I want to sleep. I want to sleep like I slept when I was a boy. Give me that. Just one time. That’s why I won’t allow that punk out there to get the best of me, let alone the last of me.”

“The Good Wife”:

Judge Kluger: “Mrs. Florrick, please don’t take this the wrong way, but I was wondering if you might like to get some coffee?”
Alicia: “Excuse me?”

“I didn’t go to your stupid SHIELD Hogwarts, or whatever,” Skye, “Agents of SHIELD”

“Carter saved my life. She saved me from myself because she believed in me. And I’m not gonna throw that away on a piece of crap like you. Patrick Simmons, you’re under arrest.” – Fusco, “Person of Interest”

“You mean so much to me that I love you in a way that is just shy of creepy.” — Tina Fey, to Carol Burnett at the “Mark Twain Prize for Humor” presentation

“My mother was always so much happier and more relaxed whenever you were there.” – Lucie Arnaz to Burnett, about the latter’s guest shots on Lucille Ball’s shows.

“The only thing my mother ever sent me to school with was a note that said, ‘Check me for lice.'” — Max, “2 Broke Girls”
