    from Psych 3/20/13 (paraphrased, maybe, since I wrote in the dark and my notes look jumbled):
    Shawn: Dude, you don’t have to come.
    Gus: Oh no, it’s cool.
    Shawn: Seriously, you should go be with your family.
    Gus: Ugh. Shawn, I was my own man. Now every time I turn around, there they are. I want to be “I Am Legend.” I don’t want to be the black Von Trapps. And that’s the truth of the matter.
    Shawn: You want to be the only man left in a post-Apocalyptic world?
    Gus: Just take me with you.

    @Ricky,
    Yeah, I saw your warning before about that Grimm episode. I was okay with it (I mean, Walking Dead has gotten me used to lots of gore and creepiness, lol) but I do hate to see stuff about the eyes…makes me cringe. We’re caught up on Grimm now. Watched the latest episode last night. Hubby is still behind on one 1600 Penn episode but otherwise we’re caught up on everything, except the latest Psych and Archer I still have to stream.

    Alan: You know the first time my wife and I took Charlie to the pediatrician for an earache, he wouldn’t let the doctor examine his ear because he thought the doctor just might see the thinking in his head. The doctor declared him the second most stubborn kid he’d ever met.

    from Golden Girls 3.1:
    Blanche: So that’s when this saleman from men’s sportswear walks clear across the store into ladies’ petite and says, “Oh excuse me, miss, but I noticed you’ve been having a hard time deciding between the turquoise strapless and the flaming red backless. Well, personally I’d like to see you in the backless.” And I said, “When?” And he said, “How about Saturday night?” And I said, “How about in your dreams, sleazo!” Can you believe the nerve of that guy?
    Rose: What were you doing in ladies petite?
