    from Psych 3.5:
    Chief: It goes without saying, Mr. Spencer, that your father is in no way to participate in this investigation. He’s no longer on the force, and his meddling could compromise the case in court. Do I make myself clear?
    Shawn: Yes you do, Chief. What isn’t clear is why people always say “goes without saying,” yet still feel compelled to say the thing that was supposed to go without saying. Doesn’t that bother you?
    Chief: No! And frankly, I could care less.
    Gus: Now that’s the one that bothers me. Why do people say “I could care less” when they really mean “I couldn’t care less”?
    Chief: Well, why don’t you tell me how to properly say this? If you share any official information about this case with your father, or let him anywhere near any new evidence, then the two of you will have to find another police department to work for, and I will personally see to it that each of you is charged with obstruction of justice.
    Gus: You split an infinitive.
    Shawn: Good catch, Gus!
    Chief: You two realize I carry a gun, right?
    Gus: That was perfectly elocuted.

    Ricky’s NBC vote was wrong (he did -1 twice), so I took another point from The Office since that was the second -1 he did when it probably should have been -2. My new vote:

    NBC

    1600 PENN – 7 (+1)
    30 ROCK – 42 (+2)
    GO ON – 49
    SMASH – 7 (-1)
    PARKS & REC – 67 (+3)
    GRIMM – 22
    PARENTHOOD – 30 (-2)
    THE OFFICE – 8 (-3)
    CHICAGO FIRE – 21

    Victors’ Village – Revolution, Community

    quote from P&R [4.22]:
    Leslie: It’s not Bobby Newport who’s gonna beat me. It’s Brandi Maxx, the p0rn star. What is this, Italy?

    Victors’ Village – Raising Hope

    Still out of Fox quotes, although last night’s RH should have provided some – it was very good. So here’s one from Parks on NBC [2.14]:
    Leslie: Nobody’s more upset about this than me. I’ve been taking these rec center classes since I was in high school. It’s where I learned hair braiding and how to make biscuits and French kissing. The French kissing was just from a boy in my biscuits class, but either way: lesson learned.

    Out of ABC quotes, and running out of Parks quotes but here’s one anyway, [2.2]:
    Leslie: I would like to be President some day, so, no, I have not smoked marijuana. I ate a brownie once at a party in college. It was intense. It’s kind of indescribable, actually. I felt like I was floating. Turns out there wasn’t any pot in the brownie. It was just an insanely good brownie.

    @couchpotato, Rebecca: Whoops, my mistake. Yes, I did mean to take -2 off The Office. Trying to do this in the early morning while watching Cult might have been a mistake… ;)

    Lisbon: That’s right.
    Jane: An apple.
    Lisbon: Yes.
    Jane: That’s just plain selfish.
    Lisbon: Selfish. Me, selfish.
    Jane: Yes, it is. You’re on my couch. I’m trying to have a cup of tea. Have you finished? You called me creaky. I’ve been cattle prodded all week. I just want to have a rest and a cup of tea and a little sleep.
    Lisbon: Oh, I wish I had a cattle prod.

    Angelus: Hey, man, you’re preaching to the guy who ate the choir. Wait, it was you, wasn’t it? You pulled just the wrong strings to make them think it was their idea. Got ‘em to yank that white, fluffy soul, and stuff it in a jar, and then gone, baby, gone.
    Beastmaster: Couldn’t risk them putting it back in you. I have wonderful plans for you, my sweet boy.
    Angelus: Um, yeah, but the thing is, as far as plans go, I make my own. So, you know, thanks for stopping by my head.
    Beastmaster: You would dare to defy me?
    Angelus: Defy who? A big scary voice? Whoa! Hey, I got one of those, too. You wanna hear it? (cups his hands over his mouth) You can kiss my vampire ass! (normal voice) That do anything for ya?

    Mulder: (quoting “Paracelsus” by Robert Browning) At times I almost dream I too have spent a life the sages’ way, and tread once more familiar paths. Perchance I perished in an arrogant self-reliance an age ago. And in that act a prayer for one more chance went up so earnest, so…Instinct with better light let in by death that life was blotted out not so completely, but scattered, wrecks enough of it to remain dim memories, as now, when seems, once more, the goal in sight again.

    Carla: Got a couple of pens and a leather appointment book.
    Norm: Or you could try using my problem. I’ve always had this terrible fear of being a failure.
    Carla: You are a failure.
    Norm: Then I’ve licked it.
