Your 10 Favorite TV Quotes of 2011

Yay! I approve of these! More Doctor Who fans need to watch Community though... As a huge fan of Doctor Who I recommend it. Also it needs more people to watch it... And I don't want it cancelled....

"I wonder, Klaus, for someone who has always been one step ahead for a thousand years. Were you prepared for this?"

"Treat Yo'self!" definitely.

Well, if people had wanted certain quotes on here, or think the order should be switched, maybe that will encourage them to vote next time.

There is this quote from the third season of Misfits that I just love:



- Where have you been?

- Just been fighting fucking Nazis and kicking the shit out of Hitler.

I just finished watching season 3, and I was totally hoping that would be on the list. I laughed so hard when she said that.
Reply

I personally would've gone with "Oi Hitler, why you gotta be such a prick?", but that ones great as well

Walter Bishop on Fringe saying that Peter fell into Fauxlivia's Vagenda should have definitely been in there.

I've kinda lost touch with D. Who but I think I may watch the entire series from the start for that killer line alone.

Number 3... :) :) :) Bazinga is number 1 in my book though. :)

I think the omission of "Everybody pants now" from Parks and Rec is criminal. So much better than "Treat Yo'self." Not that I don't love "Treat Yo'self," just not as much.

i would say it should've been "i wonder what happened in those other timelines."

I love Treat Yo' Self and the Community quote but my two favorite Community quotes are



Troy: "You ruined a Britta party...that's like letting poop spoil."

And Annie: "Don't make jokes, you're bad at it."
Reply

The Community quote had me laughing and now I want to watch that episode again. The Breaking Bad quote is awesome. I love Big Bang's but "Bazinga"? that quote has been around for awhile so I wouldn't call it the best of 2011. Plus there are better quotes on the show. Oh and Parks and Rec "Treat Yo Self" will never get old.

"This is calm...and it's Dr." Badass Spencer Reid is the best kinda Spencer Reid. That was my favorite quote of his in ages!



I'm not familiar with some of these but I cannot leave w/o showing some love to Suits. The show had more awesome quotes in one season then most shows in many! Examples



Donna: I know you meant that as a compliment, but I don't appreciate limits being placed on my beauty.



Jessica [to Louis]: This is my firm, and when you're running the firm of Litt, Nothing and Nobody, you can make the call, until then, you can just get back to work.



Harvey: Sometimes good guys gotta do bad things to make the bad guys pay.



Harvey: I'm against having emotions, not using them.

Bazinga? Are you kidding me? How is that a 2011 quote?



Forgive my animosity towards TBBT, but it's in Community's timeslot.

Considering they are on different networks that is kind of a moot point.

Or, is Community in TBBT's timeslot??? Hmmmm....

Voting is over, and I like most of these but one of my favorites that didn't make it:



Pam - "I will personally eat, fuck and kill all three of you."



There were other great Pam lines, but that was my favorite.

Supernatural was a treasure trove of quotes this season!



Dean: Remember when Crowley kept going on about hating "Dick?" I thought he was just being general.



Dean: We're on our third "the world is screwed" issue in what three years?



Dean: You know how I'm gonna deal? I'm gonna stuff my pie hole. I'm gonna drink. And I'm gonna watch some Asian cartoon porn and act like the world's about to explode because it is.



A few others I liked -



John Reese: Maybe it's up to me to do what the good people can't. Or maybe there are no good people. Maybe there are only good decisions.



Raylan Givens : Glen, I don't want you to speak anymore, cause once you start lying to me there's gonna be a river between us with no bridge to cross.

That John Reese quote was awesome. His delivery makes all his lines kind of awesome though.

Game of thrones should be one and Breaking bad number two.

Great list. But I would have switched 1 with 2 and 3 with 6. "Winter is coming" is the only quote here that has become a catchphrase. I sprinkle it into my daily conversations all the time. It works especially well for Canadians (the perpetual land of Winter). When someone says anything remotely positive, like: "I think the European debt crisis will soon be resolved", you verbally slap them back with "Winter is coming".



"I like peas." - "Winter is coming."

"Mitt Romney's not so bad." - "Winter is coming."

"Isn't life great?" - "Winter is coming."

"I hope summer lasts forever." - "Winter is coming."



I rest my case.

Exactly. This is the only one of these phrases that people will remember by next December.

"Winter is coming." You said it best! I wonder what the quote next season will be that will have us repeating it over and over.
Reply

Exactly!

"Winter Is Coming" still gives me goosebumps.

It deserves the no.1 spot.

And you guys got no. 6 wrong! That wasn't Walter White.

That was Heisenberg. And it should have been at no. 2.

Should have gone with this one for Gsme of Thrones:

Tyrions confession.



Castle almost made me cry - great choice. Then Bazinga almost made me cry from laughing. Dr. Reid was immence. River Song was great and Community was great.



Two more from Community:

Dean Pelton & Vice Dean Laybourne - it's in the promo:

Wow, really? Just because a show you love didn't make the list makes this whole website "pathetic"? That's a bit egotistical, don't you think?
Reply

I missed this poll obviously, yet the selections are great.. I did feel the actual anger within Reid in that episode, and he is soooo loveble when he is angry:) also castle's "always" and sheldon's "bazinga!" are wonderful choices, while the rest of the stuff really felt strong even that I dont watch them all.. this is by far the most satisfactory listing for me compared to all the other recent polls:) it would have been perfect if only a line from reese was there, too:)

I like to add a mental "bitch" at the end of Reid's tirade. Badass Dr. Reid, Bad. Ass.

Because it's a retread, not just from the old series, but from last year (2010).

Also, I think the funniest quote from 2011 was:



"You can yell at me all you want. I've seen enough movies to know that popping the back of a raft makes it go faster." - Troy, Community



Good list, though I'd probably switch #6 with #3. Walt's "I am the danger" quote is awesome.
