Day 24 - Best quote

Another difficult and poorly-worded topic! Do I share my favorite quotes? Or the quotes which I think are the best? And in what way best? Most dramatic? Funny? Philosophical? Most representative? I don't know, and I couldn't decide. Also, the sheer amount of work it'd take to ponder each of my favorite shows enough to dredge up favorite quotes? Not an attractive prospect.

In the end, Quixote and I decided to share those quotes most quoted around our household. To wit:

THE TOP 5 QUOTES HEARD IN CASA QUIXOTE:

1.
"Pod 6 is jerks!"
-Captain Murphy, Sealab 2021.
I couldn't find a link to any video, so here's an Ode to Captain Murphy instead.

2.
"Bullshit! God has horns."
-Terry, True Blood.
1:18-1:20. Link contains spoilers for True Blood S2.

3.
"Tea. Earl Grey. Hot."
- Captain Picard, Star Trek: The Next Generation.

4.
"And what do you say to a cup?"
"Feck off, cup!"
- Mrs. Doyle and Father Jack, Father Ted.

5.
"Bowties are cool."
- The Doctor, Doctor Who.



I'm not sure what that says about us, but there you have it.

Day 12 - An episode you've watched more than 5 times

I thought this was going to be an incredibly difficult answer to figure out; after thinking about it on and off for a few days, I came to the conclusion that there were only a couple of episodes I'd seen maybe four times: "Once More With Feeling" of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and "Passing Through Gethsemene" of Babylon 5.

Of course, then Quixote pointed out to me that we have several go-to series we enjoy putting on in the background when we feel like a guaranteed laugh. For some reason, I hadn't even thought of those!

So, yes, I have seen many, many episodes of both Father Ted and Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law more than five times. Especially of Father Ted: the series just never gets old, and Father Crilly, Dougal, and Jack never fail to elicit guffaws of laughter.

Oh my. I ♥ Father Ted.

Quixote adds to his list Star Trek: TOS1, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Kolchak the Night Stalker, The Prisoner, and many episodes of Aquateen Hunger Force. He does enjoy him some reruns.

1. Except for "The Empath" and "Turnabout Intruder."
