    from last night’s Community, because I love the Dean:

    From 30 Rock 4.22 “I Do Do” -
    Jack: The world is made by those who control their own destiny. It isn’t made by those who don’t do, it’s made by those who do do. Which is what made me the man I am. I do do.
    Liz: Yeah, you do.

    From GoT 2.09 “Blackwater” -
    Lancel: Where’s our fleet?!
    Tyrion: On their way.
    Joffrey: Why isn’t it here now?! They’re coming! (Tyrion ignores him) Hound, tell the Hand that his King has asked him a question.
    Sandor: (sighs) The King has asked you a question.
    Tyrion: Ser Lancel, tell the Hound to tell the King that the Hand is extremely busy.
    Lancel: The Hand would like me to tell you, to tell the King–
    Joffrey: If I tell the Hound to cut you in half, he’ll do it without a second thought.
    Tyrion: That would make me the “Quarter Man;” just doesn’t have the same ring to it. Cut me in half and I won’t be able to give the signal. No signal, no plan. No plan and Stannis Baratheon sacks this city, takes the Iron Throne, puts your pinched little head atop a gate somewhere. It might be quite amusing, except my head would be up there too! I’ve never much liked my head, but I don’t want to see it removed just yet.

    from The West Wing S2 (but Season 3:16 or 17 had me laughing out loud last night, too bad I didn’t jot down any quotes in the dark):
    Mrs. Landingham: [about her new car] When you get inside, there’s this…
    President Bartlet: Smell?
    Mrs. Landingham: How did you know?

    Could there be an All Stars for Cable? Combining basic & premium shows? If so, I’d nominate:
    Sex & the City
    The Sopranos
    Weeds
    Deadwood

    …and others might have more suggestions, but those are from the top of my head from dvds I’ve rented in the past.

  • Ricky

    @Rebecca: Yes, in that case I’ll migrate Torchwood, Eureka, etc. over there.

  • Rebecca

    I forgot about Arrested Development…where would that fit now? It finishes on Netflix with 15 episodes on May 26th but had 3 seasons on Fox in the past. Would it count as a 2000s show or go with the All Stars?
