    From The Wonder Years 1.01, “Pilot”

    Narrator: It was the first kiss for both of us. We never really talked about it afterward, but I think about the events of that day again and again, and somehow I know that Winnie does too. Whenever some blowhard starts talking about the anonymity of the suburbs, or the mindlessness of the TV generation. Because we know that inside each one of those identical boxes, with its Dodge parked out front, and its white bread on the table, and its TV set glowing blue in the falling dusk, there were people with stories. There were families bound together in the pain and the struggle of love. There were moments that made us cry with laughter. And there were moments, like that one, of sorrow and wonder.

    Jefferson: Because for the last twenty-eight years I’ve been stuck in this house, day after day, always the same, until one night you in your little yellow Bug roll into town and the clock ticks and things start to change. You see, I know what you refuse to acknowledge, Emma: you’re special, brought something precious to Storybrooke, magic.
    Emma: You’re insane.
    Jefferson: Because I speak the truth?
    Emma: Because you’re talking about magic.
    Jefferson: I’m talking about what I’ve seen. Perhaps you’re the one that’s mad.

    From Person of Interest 2.01, “The Contingency”

    Root: One day, I realized all the dumb, selfish things people do – it’s not our fault. No one designed us. We’re just an accident, Harold. We’re just bad code. But the thing you built, it’s perfect. Rational. Beautiful by design.
    Harold: What I made is just a machine; a system, that’s all.
    Root: I don’t think so, Harry. You may have fooled Nathan, but I know the truth. If you want to make something that understands human behavior, it has to be at least as smart as a human. You created an intelligence, a life. And then you ripped out its voice, locked it in a cage, and handed it over the most laughably corrupt people imaginable.

    Gibbs: Works for me. (brightly, holding up cell phone)
    Abby: Even if it does, it’s gonna take like an hour for mine to cool down!
    McGee: And without air conditioning it’ll happen again!
    Gibbs: So take it somewhere cooler!
    Abby: Where? The whole building is like an illegal sweat-shop!
    Gibbs: Not the whole building Abs!
