My 2008 TV Season Premiere Favourite Quotes

September 28, 2008 at 2:54 pm 5 comments

Dancing with the Stars

“Mind your cleavage.”

~ Judge Len Goodman to celebrity contestant Cloris Leachman when she flashed him her cleavage.

The Big Bang Theory

“Well, I assume you’re referring to digestive regularity. Because I’ve come to learn that such inquiries are inappropriate.”

~ Sheldon to Penny when she asked him if the brainiac Leonard has ever dated a regular girl.

How I Met Your Mother

“I don’t want to be Robin’s boyfriend. I just want to be with her. All the time. I want to hear about her day and tell her about mine. I want to hold her hand and smell her hair. But I don’t want to be her stupid boyfriend.”

~ Womanizer Barney to friend Lily, on being in love with Robin.

The Office

“I lost four pounds. I don’t know what those other fools were doing but I lost four pounds.”

~ Stanley, on how his officemates lost only one pound as a group on week 4 of the weight loss challenge.

“What is wrong with these people? They have no willpower. I once went 28 years without having sex. And then again for 7 years.”

~ Michael Scott, on how his officemates lost only one pound as a group on week 4 of the weight loss challenge.

Ugly Betty

“Growing up isn’t about making the right decisions. It’s about dealing with the decisions you’ve made and picking yourself up.”

~ Ignacio Suarez to daughter Betty, on moving out and getting her own apartment.

“Take a leap. Don’t be afraid to fall flat on your face.”

~ Betty to Kimmie, when the former mean girl was feeling bad about herself.

(This quote made a lot of sense while I was watching the show. But now that I think about it, I think Betty was just trying to get even with Kimmie, wanting her to fall flat on her face. 🙂 )


“I have no interest in money. Money won’t show me my destiny. I saved the world … twice. Now look at me, a man without a quest. All I do is sit here bored. It’s not like destiny is going to come knocking at my door.” (Then someone knocks at the door. 🙂 )

~ Hiro to Ando, on taking over his late father’s business.

“I don’t feel anything. It didn’t hurt. There’s no pain. I heal. But I always feel everything. It hurts the same as it would for anyone else, but not this time. That pain. I’m always so grateful for. Because it’s the only time I know I’m still human.”

~ Claire Bennett to mom Sandra, when she cut her hand on a piece of broken glass.


“We all have something that we need to hide. But it’s alright. It will get better.”

~ Clark Kent to Beth, a 15-year old meteor freak who blew up a bus and her friend.

(This is actually from the second episode.)

    I love How I met your Mother, and the Office!

    You missed the most important Office quote, though:



    and you still haven’t added me up! 😀

    I like the quote from Smallville – it echoes nothing but the truth.

    we have our version of dancing with the stars (strictly come dancing) and for the first time since it started,I’m totally hooked.
    Love Ugly Betty too; Heroes will be first shown tonight…can’t wait!

    The only shows I am familiar with in your list are Heroes and Ugly Betty. By the way, do you know that Ugly Betty will soon have a Pinoy version? I forgot the name of the pretty actress who will play her?

    I like the lose-weght challenge In the Office. I was thinking that would be a great way of losing weight among office colleagues. Put up an attractive price for the one who would win it. Galing.
