    Penny: It’s not gonna explode, just keep driving. Warp speed ahead, Mr. Spock.
    Sheldon: Mr. Spock did not pilot the Enterprise, he was a science officer, and I guarantee you that if he ever saw the Enterprise’s “Check Engine” light blinking, he would pull the ship over immediately!

    Ryan: Nikita…
    Nikita: I’ll do what I have to.

    Jeor Mormont: (after telling Jon about several disturbing reports from Beyond-The-Wall) Do you think your brother’s war is more important than ours?
    Jon Snow: No.
    Jeor Mormont: When dead men and worse come hunting for us in the night, you think it matters who sits on the Iron Throne?
    Jon Snow: No.
    Jeor Mormont: Good. Because I want you and your wolf with us when we ride out beyond the Wall tomorrow.
    Jon Snow: Beyond the Wall?
    Jeor Mormont: I’ll not sit meekly by and wait for the snows. I mean to find out what’s happening. The Night’s Watch will ride in force, against the Wildlings, the White Walkers and whatever else is out there. And we will find Benjen Stark – alive or dead. I will command them myself. So, I’ll only ask you once, Lord Snow: Are you a brother of the Night’s Watch, or a bastard boy who wants to play at war?

    Walter: Every day for the past twenty-five years, I’ve tried to imagine what you would look like as a man, my son, but I don’t deserve this. I don’t deserve you. I realize now this is my punishment. You were sent to tempt me, to see if I would repeat the mistakes of the past. You shouldn’t be here.
    Peter: Walter, no.
    Walter: Wherever you came from, however you got here, it doesn’t matter. I can’t help you.
    Peter: Walter, you don’t understand.
    Walter: I tried to help a boy. A version of my son twenty-five years ago. That boy was never my son, and neither are you.

Unable to get out, because if it did it would spread. Now, the cork is this Island. [Puts a cork in the jug, trapping the wine] And it’s the only thing keeping the darkness where it belongs.

    Ryan: I think it can be salvaged.

    @PoIFanatic: It’s not just GoT, I’ve had quotes from Firefly and Community get blocked on me. I can sort of understand why the Community one was blocked, but the Firefly one was clean, so it makes no sense to me.

    @Marcus: Sorry, but your CBS and NBC votes are invalid. When a show enters the Victors’ Village, it’s locked there until the Winners’ Circle begins, so you can’t add any more points to PoI. Also, you only did +3 and -3 for NBC. You needed to do +2, +1, -1 and -2 as well, and also you failed to list RVN in the Victors’ Village. Next voter, go off PoIFanatic’s CBS and NBC votes.
