Changes!

Blog Post #207!


Welcome to our new WordPress site! Well, almost….  Our main site is still over at http://tvmegasite.net and will be for quite a while. However, we’re building the new site here on WordPress. Right now it’s found at http://wp.tvmeg.com, as it’s still a “test” site, but it will be at http://tvmeg.com. Very soon!

Happy Halloween!

For the past few months, we had to work hard at figuring out how to edit this new design in WordPress (which you may have read about in my blog back in July), and how to make it exactly how we want it. I had a lot of help (see our credits page).  I had to learn how to use WordPress better.  Then it was a matter of figuring out how to build the new site.  I put up the main pages, and then, while I figured out how to use the software, I built our new Arrow site, adding lots of updates and news.  Then I had to figure out how to put in ads and other stuff. It’s been very trying, but thankfully, we’re all done with that. Now, as soon as I finish building the basic pages, we’ll start bringing more content over and move to the new address. I’ll continue to update the current show pages as I bring them over, and we’ll be able to put up more content for the new shows that I like much easier. We’ll probably leave the older shows pages on the old site for a while.

Happy Halloween!

I hope you like the changes! It will make things way easier for all of us here that work on it, and it should be easier for you to read, too, and should look nicer and load better. Also, you can make comments now!  Please leave comments!  We love hearing from you guys.

The Haunting of Hill HouseWe have some new volunteers, too, which is always exciting. We lost Ellen, who was helping to write the Y&R Updates, so Christine has been writing all five days. Christine is a fabulous writer, but I don’t think she really wants to do them daily, so we’re looking for someone else to help her out. I might have someone, but it might be a while before she can start… in the meantime, Eva has been writing the Y&R short recaps all five days. We may have someone to help her out, too, a great new write named Cherie who will be writing Monday’s Y&R recaps one day ahead, and also stepping in to write for Eva while she goes on vacation in December.  Please visit our Volunteer Jobs page if you would like to help out writing Y&R Updates or anything else! We have many jobs available.

In August, I spent a lot of time building our 2018 Primetime Schedule, which Buffy the Vampire Slayer Halloweencovers all of the broadcast shows and when they premiere. I also made the cable listings which tells when all of those shows are returning to premiering. I haven’t had time to update that much, though. Still, it might be useful, so I hope you can check it out!

In my last blog, I talked about “Bold & The Beautiful,” which I watch every week day.  I’m glad that they brought Eric and Quinn back into the show with more story (just please don’t break them up again!).  It’s also great to have more story for Pam and Charlie. I still don’t like Thorne and Katie together. They were largely used as a plot device to get Ridge and Bill at each other’s throats again. She and Wyatt Thorne and Katie's weddingwere much better together, and they broke them up too quickly for no good reason. Now that Katie won her court case, we rarely see her and Thorne any more, unless it’s connected to Ridge and Bill. I notice that we don’t see too much of the interns Emma, Xander and Zoe any more. Good. I guess I’m not the only ones who didn’t like them or their bland story.

Lately I’ve been recording and watching “Stargate Atlantis” and “Stargate SG-1” off the El Rey channel. I saw some of SG-1, but I never got around to finishing it, Stargate Atlantisand I never saw the other show. I did see and love “Stargate Universe,” which to me was very similar to “Star Trek: Deep Space 9.”  Anyway, they’ve been showing them from the beginning, so I’m getting to see them, and I really love them.

Unfortunately, my DVR is really filled up with so much with “General Hospital” and “Young & The Restless” from the past few years, so I’m having a hard time watching enough shows to keep it from going to 100%. I did buy an external disk drive, so I could backup some of the shows, and make more space, but I haven’t had time to figure it out yet. I need to do that this week!  With the new Fall season in full Lodge 49 castswing, I have a lot of shows to catch up on already.

We had quite a few new interviews with TV stars the past few weeks, so I hope you can check those out.  I watched “Lodge 49” this Fall (to interview 2 of the stars) and really loved it. It’s been renewed for a 2nd season, so I hope you can watch it.Manifest cast

Of the new series on TV, I’m enjoying “The Rookie” and “Manifest” so far. There are still a few I haven’t seen. I didn’t really enjoy the first episode of Alec Baldwin’s new Sunday night interview show, but the second episode was really good. He seemed more at ease. He interviewed Ricky Gervais, who is one of my favorite comedians, and Jeff Bridges, one of my favorite actors! So that was great fun to see.  I tried to watch Busy Philipps’ new show “Busy Tonight” on E!, but I couldn’t stand it. Too mindless for me, and her voice (plus her Valley Girl accent) is grating.

Will & GraceThere are many reboots this season, but so far, the only one I’m enjoying it “Will & Grace” on NBC. I saw the first episode of “The Conners,” and I thought it was very depressing, and not very good. To be fair, I didn’t much like last year’s “Roseanne” reboot, either.  I do watch “Murphy Brown,” but it’s not that great. It’s just too heavy-handed and not that funny. I loved the old show, but it’s not the 1980’s anymore. They need to be quicker, wittier. I don’t know. I’m still watching it, but it’s very uneven. I saw the first episode of “Magnum PI” and it was boring. So was the new “Charmed.”  So, kudos to “Will & Grace” for not only coming back as great as before, but even better.

I do like “God Friended Me,” “New Amsterdam” and “A Million Little Things,” but DaredevilI just don’t have time to add them to my list of shows to watch. I haven’t even had time yet to watch the latest season of “Daredevil” on Netflix. As always, I’ve got a whole stack of DVD’s to watch and review, as well as a whole list of shows I should be checking out. It never ends. It’s gotten a lot worse with Netflix, HULU, Amazon and so many other new streaming services coming out.

I had to delete “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” from my DVR. Hopefully I can put him back on once I’ve moved some shows over to the external hard drive. Oh, I’m also watching “The Cool Kids,” which is so-so, but I love the actors on it.  None of the new sitcoms seemed funny to me.  I wasn’t very impressed with Danny Rand (Iron Fist) and Luke Cage (Power Man)the CW drama “All-American,” which was kind of dull.

I’m very annoyed that Netflix has canceled “Iron Fist” and “Luke Cage!” I sure hope they do another “Defenders” or these characters show up in “Daredevil” or “Jessica Jones.”  They make a lot of crappy shows on Netflix and the other streaming services that I never watch, but I always catch the superhero shows! I’m heartsick that those shows are gone. 😟

On the positive side, I’m very glad to have all my CW superhero shows back, and “Supernatural,” and “Doctor Who” with the new female doctor! And “The Resident” and “Gifted” on FOX, “Big Bang Theory” on CBS, “Blindspot,” “Midnight Texas” and “The Good Place” on NBC, and “How to Get Away with Blindspot season 4Murder” on ABC.  We still watch “Family Guy” on FOX, too, but we stopped watching “South Park” because it’s just not funny any more.

What is your favorite Halloween show or movie? I don’t like to go to scary movies very much. I don’t mind some of the older ones on TV. I don’t mind if a show is about things like vampires, ghosts, witches, or werewolves, but I hate zombies. Linus, Sally, and the rest of the Peanuts gang in the pumpkin patchI love the old Charlie Brown special from when we were kids! I love Halloween, but I don’t like being grossed out or scared too much. A little scary is OK, though.

Leave a comment below to let me know which Halloween show or movie is your favorite!

Daily summary writers for the daytime soaps.  We often need someone new for these as people come and go quite often.  Right now we need these volunteers below.

You must be a pretty good writer (good with grammar, punctuation, and with writing clearly) and able to put detail into your updates.

We need  backup writers for most of our other daytime summaries (people to fill in when our volunteers can’t do it).   These still have to be written well, with details, but they don’t have to be on time.

We may also sometimes need some writers for short recaps. These are just 1-2 short paragraphs that describe the main points of what happened (no details needed).

    This requires someone who watches the show to write summaries for the days they choose.  They will be put up at a page like this.  Some good examples of the kind of summaries we need, and instructions on how to write them, are at this page.  We like them fairly detailed.  

NOTE: This list changes often because our volunteers come and go often.  WE ARE VERY PARTICULAR about the type of writing we need so please make sure to follow the instructions!  However, we are willing to work with ANYONE on improving writing skills or getting it just right to suit our needs.

Transcribers
We need some interview transcribers for when we have one-on-one phone interviews with actors.Even if you can transcribe only one thing occasionally, it would be helpful!

We might also have some older daytime soaps that you can transcribe for us (mostly online, or we can send you some on DVD).

These have to be very exact. You can’t leave parts out. It would be difficult to do if you don’t have a lot of patience or don’t know proper punctuation. You have to be able to watch the show while you type, and pause the show when necessary.

NOTE: We need some people to help us specifically with our “General Hospital” weekday transcripts. We have a device that grabs the closed-captioning from the shows, but ABC has changed the way they the CC, and now we have to put in all of the characters’ names and separate each line of dialogue. It’s not quite proofreading and not quite transcribing. It requires that you watch the show while you fix it up, so you can see who’s saying what. You also have to edit out any commercial bits and put in line dividers between each scene as well as fix any other mistakes you see. Even if you can only do ONE day a week, it would be a big help!

We also have some transcripts for primetime shows like “Smallville” that are not finished; just like the GH transcripts above, you need to put in the names and listen to the dialogue from the show and fix it up on the transcript. These need to be exact. You have to have good knowledge of English grammar and punctuation as well as have a good ear and attention to detail. We may also have transcripts some for other shows like “Gotham” and “The Flash” that also need the same type of editing.


Managers of each section of our site
This requires that you have a good knowledge of TV or of a particular show we cover.  For instance, you have to be a fan of The Bold & The Beautiful to manage the B&B section.  You have to be a fan of Star Trek to manage the Star Trek section.  Or you have to have a good knowledge of most of the soaps to manage the daytime section. And so on…It would help if you know MS Frontpage (FP) or Expression Web (EW) or are willing to learn it.  Your duties would include finding more volunteers to make content, making content yourself, helping to publicize your section, making sure your section’s pages match up, putting up ads or other changes, etc.  We especially need people to run each of our soap sections and our sections for current shows like Arrow, The Flash, Big Bang Theory, Law & Order, Gotham, Grey’s Anatomy, South Park, and others.  Please see this list for all shows we cover.  We have managers already for Days of Our Lives. We also need someone to run our sites for soap actors Cady McClain, Hunt Block, Tamara Braun, Maurice Benard, Agim Kaba and more.

Editors to edit the site using the software Microsoft Frontpage or Expression Web.
We only will take someone who we can trust and who has a lot of experience in FrontPage or Expression Web.  We need people to help us update the old site and move sections over here to WordPress. We can help you learn FrontPage or Expression Web, so email us! Requirements: knowledge or interest in learning Frontpage or Expression Web, owning the software, and an aptitude in using software. Right now we mostly need people who don’t mind fixing problems or maintain sections of the site, which could involve writing or finding information.

 We really need some people for this, to help us putting new content on pages, putting the existing older pages in the newer design, and building new pages. This is top priority for our site!

Newsletter Editor
We have newsletters for scoops/spoilers for each of the soap operas, so the editor gathers the info from select web sites and puts it together. This must be done either Sunday night or early Monday. We need someone to do our weekly GH, and/or CBS spoilers newsletters.  We also have a monthly newsletter for SciFi TV and one for jokes.  No special skills needed, but you have to be reliable and able to copy/paste text.

Volunteers to find new links for all/any daytime and primetime shows and check existing ones
We have tons of links pages for many shows.  Web pages come and go very quickly so we need to get rid of any dead links and surf the net looking for new sites. It’s not hard and again, we can teach you how to do this if you’re not sure how.  We need LOTS of people for this! Requirements: internet connection to the web and ability to follow directions.  Knowledge of shows helps! VERY EASY JOB!!!

Proofreaders to proofread parts of the site for us and soap opera summaries
You must be an excellent proofreader and have a great knowledge of grammar and spelling.  It helps if you know Frontpage or HTML but it’s not required.  We require that you take and pass a proofreading test that we supply. We also need proofreaders for our primetime episode guides and some fan fiction.

Proofreaders to proofread soap opera transcripts
For Bold & Beautiful, Days of Our Lives  and Young & The Restless–You should be able to run the spell-check, read through to catch mistakes, and insert horizontal lines between the scenes.  Very easy.

For General Hospital–We need someone who can watch the show while they read the transcript; put in the characters’ names and separate each line of dialogue as well as the above.

Writers to generally add more content to our TV show pages (either daytime or primetime) ; here is a list of our shows
We have made a good start but we need to add a lot of content to all of our television show pages.  Any suggestions are welcome.  Some more specific ideas are below.    Requirements: knowledge of a particular daytime or primetime TV show or of shows in general.  If you have one show you really like, you can be in charge of that whole section!  Especially if you know WordPress, Frontpage or HTML.

Writers of Character Descriptions;
These are a description of what the character’s personality is like.  Are they a good guy or a bad guy?  What are their habits, who are they related to, who are their friends, and some personal history.  Example here, but it doesn’t have to be that long.  We currently have someone writing them for Days and Passions, but all others are available.

Writers to make trivia quizzes about each show (either daytime or primetime) ;
These are like multiple choice questions; you send in 5-10 questions, with multiple answers, and also the answer key to tell which is the right answer.  It can be about the current storyline, past storylines, the characters, the actors, anything.  Example here

Writers to write top ten lists for all/any daytime and primetime shows
This would be writing funny top ten lists (a la David Letterman) about any given TV show.  Here are some examples for Bold and the Beautiful, As the World Turns, and Passions.  We are NOT picky about the writing or humor!!!  We will take them for ANY show that we already have a page for (either daytime or primetime) and will consider them for other shows that we don’t have yet.  Requirements: knowledge of a particular primetime or daytime TV show or of shows in general.

Writers to write fan fiction for all/any daytime and primetime shows
Here are some examples on our site of fan fiction for One Life to Live and Y&RWe are not particular about writing style, length, subject matter (as long as it’s about a TV show…racy is okay, but no porn), which show, or how often you send in a segment.  The only requirement is that it be about a TV show and that it be finished at some point.  It should also be original and be written well, in story format (not all dialogue).  Requirements: knowledge of a particular primetime or daytime TV show or of shows in general, writing skills.

Writers to write opinion articles or reviews (prefer funny but not necessary) for daytime and primetime shows, as well as new DVDs.
We need essays/observations/columns/articles about TV and/or TV shows.  They can be funny, obnoxious, or anything you like.  We are not particular.  Here is an example of some General Hospital and Days of Our Lives essays on our site.  Requirements: knowledge of a particular primetime or daytime TV show or of shows in general; writing skills.

Writers to make puzzles for all/any daytime and primetime shows or general TV/soap ones
We will take any kind of puzzles, word games, etc. that use TV or TV shows as the theme.  It’s VERY easy to make puzzles; we will show you how if you are interested.  You can download a free computer program to do most of the work or there are some sites where they can make them for you.  All you have to do is come up with the clues and answers, which should be easy if you are knowledgeable about any TV show.   Requirements: knowledge of a particular primetime or daytime TV show or of shows in general.  Access to a PC.

Writers to write poetry or haiku about shows
We have some for OLTL, AMC, PC, and Passions, but it would be good to get more for ANY show. It’s easy and fun!  Example here

Writers to help contribute to our Predictions and Rumors section for each show
This requires someone who watches the show and would like to tell us what they think will happen on the show or pass on any rumors they might hear about in mailing lists/groups/forums.  Example here

Someone to find celebrity appearances
Requirements: Just time to find appearances on the net, copy them and send them in regularly. In-person appearances at book-signings, conventions, etc. as well as in movies, other TV shows or on talk shows.  We know where they are and can tell you where to look. It’s not hard.

Fans to choose “Best Lines” or “Best Quotes”
Requirement: watch the show every day or week and pick out the best lines of dialogue and send them to us.  For the soaps, we have daily transcripts so you can use those as references. Example here We currently need them for General Hospital and many primetime shows.

Episode Guide Writers for primetime shows We currently need them especially for “South Park”,  and our newer sections for “Grey’s Anatomy”, “Flash”, and more.  If you want to write them for other shows, we might accept those as well.  Please see our list of primetime shows to see what we cover.
Requirement: Watch every episode of the show live or on tape/DVD and write summaries of what happened on the shows.  They can be either detailed or short, as long as they are descriptive enough so that you can tell one episode from another.    If you are proven to be reliable, we could rent or buy you the DVDs when needed.

Primetime Show and DVD review writer We need someone who watches new TV shows or new TV DVD’s to write short reviews for our site. We can send you new DVD’s to review for us and you can keep them when you’re done!

TV Blog Writer We have a TV Blog that we never have time to write in. It needs someone to write in it weekly/regularly about what’s going on in TV, your opinions or other things about TV. Basically, you can write anything you want, as long as it’s about TV (and not just all about the same show over and over).  Plus we might ask you to also put in photos and references to some of our pages on our site, for promotional purposes.

Graphics Person to make slideshows using RealSlideshow or other programs.
We would like slideshows for all of our shows. We have some right now for General Hospital, One Life to Live, and Smallville. These are animations or videos with music.

Promoter to advertise our site on the web, in newsgroups, etc.
Right now we need someone to post on Instragram, Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr and Facebook regularly. This would require that you know how to post on those sites as well as simple graphics creation.

We also need someone to post on message boards and newsgroups for more help.  Requirements: This does not require any special knowledge or skill; we will tell you where and what to post.

Later we will need someone to post on all those places to let people know about our great site.  We currently do this ourselves.

Forum Managers

We need a co-manager for our Primetime Forum Manager to help run our forum at TVmegs.net (on Blogger).  You would need to promote the forum around the net and get conversations going.  You would also need to read what anyone else posts to make sure there is no spam or fights.

We also need a manager for our ABC Soaps Forum at http://forums.delphiforums.com/ghbella Same basic description as above except it’s only about General Hospital, All My Children and One Life to Live, not the rest of TV. (Mostly it’s about GH since the others have been canceled)

We also need a manager for our CBS Soaps Forum http://forums.delphiforums.com/Oakdale2000 Same basic description as above except it’s only about The Bold & The Beautiful and The Young & The Restless (knowledge of past CBS soaps is helpful, too, but not required).

Daytime Manager
This person would be in charge of our entire daytime section, posting info when it is sent to him/her from other volunteers, finding news and spoilers to keep current pages updated, etc. Requirements: Knowledge of WordPress/Microsoft Frontpage or Expression Web, and at least a few free hours per week. Ability to follow instructions and fairly good writing skills.

Primetime Manager
This person would be in charge of our entire primetime section, posting info when it is sent to him/her from other volunteers, finding news and spoilers to keep current pages updated, etc.  Requirements: Knowledge of WordPress/Microsoft Frontpage or Expression Web, and at least a few free hours per week.  Ability to follow instructions and fairly good writing skills.

News Manager
We need someone to post some news items sent to us by various networks and their publicists, such as USA Network, Discovery, History, MTV, HBO, TVLand, FOX etc. The items are posted on our news page and some of our other news and spoilers pages. WordPress and/or Frontpage/Expression Web knowledge required.

Volunteer Manager
We need a new person to do some administrative chores to help us keep more organized about our volunteers.  We have 25-50 volunteers at any given time, and people come and go often, so we need someone to help keep track of people in our spread sheet.  We also need this person to keep track of the work people do, remind them to do the work and to go to our Volunteer Forum, add to and remove them from the forum, send them Birthday e-cards, etc.  Requirements:  Ownership of and Knowledge of Excel is helpful.  You must be a detailed, organized person with fairly good social skills online, since you will be contacting our volunteers via email quite often.

Volunteer to make pictures for our site (screen captures)
We need some more pictures for our site all of the time.   We do not want someone else’s pictures (unless they are your own that you took at a fan encounter or from the set of a show) or pictures scanned in from magazines because they are copyrighted.  You can make the caps from the shows online very easily (we can tell you how) or by using a Snappy or ATI device.

Interviewer
We need someone with TV contacts to do interviews with TV actors. You must have some experience or be able to figure out how to get interviews with them via their publicists or agents.

You must be able to either take shorthand or record the phone interview so you can then write it up as an interview or transcript. This requires some skills for writing and interviewing. You should have a good phone voice and be clear and professional on the phone. You should be able to come up with 10-15 minutes of questions if necessary, even if it’s someone you don’t know or for a show you have never seen (i.e. do research online). We can help you out with suggestions, but you must do the bulk of the work.  We need reliable people who will do this regularly.

Daytime Soap screencap maker
We need someone to make 4-6 screencaps for the soaps Monday through Friday, so we can put them in our Updates. This is very easy. You must live in the US so you can see the soaps online.  Helpful if you know how to work with graphics, but it’s not required.  We just recently lost our regular volunteer who did this for us for years.

Contact us if you are interested!   Only dependable people who are serious about helping us and can donate at least a few hours a week should contact us. Thanks!

Arrow Favorite Quotes: An Innocent Man

Our favorite Arrow Quotes!



104 “An Innocent Man”

Malcolm in An Innocent Man Favorite Quotes

Oliver: Found a couple of things.
John: What, archery classes?

Oliver: Starling City is dying. It is being poisoned by a criminal elite who don’t care who they hurt as long as they maintain wealth and power.
John: And what are you gonna do, take them all down by your lonesome?

Laurel: I care about the lives of other people, Oliver. Maybe you should try it sometime.
Oliver: Oh, man.
Thea: That was harsh. You OK?
Oliver: Sure. Second time tonight that a friend of mine has taken me to the woodshed. Kind of tires you out.

Oliver: What am I supposed to do with that? Does that mean “bird”? I don’t speak Chinese!

Oliver: What are you watching?
Thea: Peter Declan.
Oliver: Hmm?
Thea: Oh, a guy who killed his wife. Right. This guy killed his wife in their baby’s room. Psycho.

Thea: So why don’t you make a play? I mean, she did come over here just to make sure you didn’t get shot.
Oliver: There are reasons.
Thea: What are they? Besides you sleeping with her sister and her sister dying and her father hating your guts and you being a jerk to everybody since you’ve been back.
Oliver: Those are the top ones.

Moira: Mr. Diggle’s replacement.
Oliver: Replacement?
Moira: Yes. He tendered his resignation this morning.
Oliver: Did he say why?
Moira: He said he didn’t approve of the way you spend your evenings particularly given that they always begin with you ditching him.

Oliver: Firm grip you got there, Rob.
Rob: That’s five years SWAT with Monument Point MCU.
Oliver: I feel safer already.

Oliver: Say, Rob, I wanna go into town. Could you please get the car for me?
Rob: No offense, but I have been filled in on your tendency to slip the leash. If it’s all the same to you, I’d prefer keeping you in my sights at all times.
Oliver: We’re 20 miles from the city. If you don’t drive me, how else am I gonna get there? Right. I like him.

Joanna: You know, if you go somewhere that’s not work or your home your odds of meeting someone increase by a gazillion percent.
Laurel: Oh, that’s not true. I could still get mugged on the way home.
Joanna: In that case, I hope he’s cute and single.

Moira: Well, it looks like someone forgot a lunch date with his wife.
Walter: What do you mean? Lunch isn’t for another… Forty-five minutes ago. I’m so sorry.

Carly: So when are you gonna tell me?
John: Hmm.
Carly: About what happened to your arm.
John: Oh, it’s my shoulder, and it’s fine.
Carly: I knew that Queen guy was trouble.
John: Hey, I never said this happened protecting Queen.
Carly: Oh, yeah? Then what’s he doing here?
Oliver: Hello, Diggle-sister-in-law Carly. I’m Oliver Queen.
Carly: I know who you are.
John: No, you really don’t.

Oliver: Hello. I couldn’t help but notice a distinct lack of police cars when I got home. I knew you wouldn’t drop a dime on me. So have you considered my offer?
John: Offer? Heh.That’s one hell of a way to put it.

John: Please. You were born with a platinum spoon in your mouth, Queen. What, you spent five years on an island with no room service and suddenly you found religion?

Oliver: I’m gonna go to the washroom, Rob.
John: Oh, that boy is long gone now.

Joanna: You actually think he’s innocent?
Laurel: Someone does.
Joanna: So you said, but you didn’t say was who.
Laurel: A guardian angel.
Joanna: The guy in the hood? Wha– ? You’re kidding.

Laurel: He breaks the law and God knows what else.
Joanna: How are you not afraid that he’s not gonna do “God knows what” to you?
Laurel: He won’t. I don’t know, I can feel it.

Laurel: If what you’re doing isn’t wrong then why are you hiding your face with a hood?
Oliver: To protect the ones I care about.
Laurel: That sounds lonely.
Laurel: It can be.

Walter: I was hoping you could find out some of the details – of the transaction for me.
Felicity: Find out?
Walter: Dig up. Discreetly.
Felicity: I’m your girl. I mean, I’m not your girl. I wasn’t making a pass at you. Thank you for not firing me.

Thea: Oh, my God. What is wrong with your face?
Oliver: What do you mean?
Thea: There’s something really weird on it, like this thing with your mouth. It looks like it’s in the shape of a smile.
Oliver: Yes. That’s cute.
Thea: So why are you grinning?
Oliver: I took your advice with Laurel – to be myself.
Thea: And?
Oliver: It’s helping.
Thea: I got mad relationship skills, bro. Let me know if you need trendy places to propose.
Oliver: I think you’re getting a little bit ahead of yourself. Little bit. Rob! You gotta keep up.

Felicity: The company Mrs. Queen– Er, Steele. Mrs. Queen-Steele. Does she hyphenate? She seems like a woman who would hyphenate.
Walter: Ahem.
Felicity: Right.

Carly: Enough moping.
John: Mm.
Carly: You quit. It’s done. My advice would be to move on.
John: Ah. If it were only that easy.

Moira: You wanted to see me?
Malcolm: You look nervous, Moira.
Moira: Do I have a reason to be?
Malcolm: We all do.
Moira: A modern-day Robin Hood. What? Are you worried that your net worth makes you a target?

Our favorite Arrow Quotes!



103 “Lone Gunmen”

Felicity Lone Gunmen Favorite Quotes

Oliver: What happened? Thea okay?

John: The cops brought her home. She and some of her friends broke into a store tried on some dresses last night. Lit up the breathalyzer like a Christmas tree. So how was your evening, sir?

Oliver: You mean, after I said I had to go bathroom at dinner and never came back?

John: I guess from now on I’ll be watching you pee.


Moira: Last time it was public intoxication. This time breaking and entering. My, how we are moving up in the criminal world.

Thea: Mm. You know, when you pay off the store owner you should check out the merchandise. – They got some pretty killer outfits.


Lucas: Maybe he’s finally figured out there’s easier ways to kill people than with a bow and arrow. Uh, it’s like you said, the guy’s a whack job.


Oliver: So what do you think? Great spot for a nightclub or what?

Tommy: Sweet. Though, I gotta tell you, man, f you’re thinking calling it Queens, I don’t think you’re gonna get the clientele you were hoping for.


Oliver: Private office?

Tommy: For the private one-on-one meetings, I would imagine.

Oliver: Hopefully the occasional two-on-one meeting.

Tommy: [Laughs]


Tommy: How about tomorrow night, the two of us go and scope out the competition? There’s a new club opening downtown. It’s called Poison. Max Fuller owns it.

Oliver: Max Fuller.

Tommy: Mm-hm.

Oliver: I slept with his fiancee.

Tommy: Yeah, before the wedding.

Oliver: It was at rehearsal dinner.

Tommy: The rehearsal dinner is technically before the wedding, right? Ha, ha.

Oliver: Ha, ha.

Tommy: And besides, who stays mad at a castaway?


John: Well, this is the Glades, right? Your rich white friends wouldn’t come to this neighborhood on a bet.


Laurel: Joanna, I’m over him.

Joanna:  [Scoffs]

Laurel: And you don’t believe me.

Joanna: Well, I would have if I wouldn’t have just caught you trolling for articles on him!

Laurel: I wasn’t trolling!


Joanna:  Okay. That’s gotta stop. So we are going out tonight. And– and we are gonna have some shots, and we are gonna dance with men that we don’t know, and we are gonna stay out way too late.

Laurel: I really don’t think I can go out tonight.

Joanna: It is adorable that you actually think I’m giving you a choice.


Thea: Grounded? I’ve never been grounded.

Moira: Well, you’ve never committed larceny before.


Alexei: First, we will drink to each other’s health then I will look into the identity of this man you seek.  Aah. I will also confirm that you are really Bratva captain. Should this not be the case, I will send my mechanic here to find you and kill you and your family.


Bouncer: I don’t see your name on the list.

John: Mr. Queen.

Oliver: Oh. I have never seen this guy before in my life. Ever.


Tommy: Oh, wow.  Doesn’t you going out and having fun violate some kind of law? You know, like the ones that are carved on a stone tablet?

Laurel: That’s cute, Tommy.

Tommy: Thanks.


Tommy: You wanna get to him? You’ve gotta go through me.  Wow, they are probably gonna go through me.


Laurel: So is this over, Max? Or are you gonna have your boys pound on me next?


Tommy: The girl’s pretty cute.

John: That’s my sister-in-law.

Tommy: Who I will never speak to or look at…Ever. Gonna grab a booth.


Carly: So sweet of you to adopt two white boys.  They need a good role model.


Tommy: Look, man about Laurel. I was gonna tell you. I was just trying to figure out the right way.

Oliver: To tell somebody that you slept with their girlfriend after they went missing and were then presumed dead.  What, there’s no greeting card for that?

[Both chuckle]


Oliver:  No, Mr. Queen was my father.

Felicity:  Right, but he’s dead. I mean, he drowned. You didn’t, which means you could come down to the IT Department and listen to me babble. Which Will end.  In 3…2…1.

Oliver: Having trouble with my computer and they told me that you were the person to come and see.  I was at my coffee shop surfing the web and I spilt a latte on it.

Felicity:  Really?

Oliver: Yeah.

Felicity:  Because these look like bullet holes.

Oliver:  My coffee shop is in a bad neighborhood.


Felicity:  Look, I don’t wanna get in the middle of some Shakespearean family drama thing.

Oliver:  What?

Felicity:  Mr.  Steele marrying your mom.  Claudius, Gertrude… Hamlet?

Oliver:  I didn’t study Shakespeare at any of the four schools that I dropped out of.


Tommy:  I wanted to talk to you about last night.

Laurel:  You mean how I saved your asses? You’re welcome.

Tommy:  Okay, first of all, we shall never, ever speak of that ever again.  Secondly, I think you know that I meant the other thing.

Arrow Favorite Quotes: Honor Thy Father

Our favorite Arrow Quotes!



102 “Honor Thy Father”

Favorite Quotes Honor Thy Father

Oliver: This guy gets more air-time than the Kardashians, right?
Thea: Five years on an island and you still know who they are.
Oliver: I’ve been catching up. It’s nice to see how much our culture has improved while I was away.

Oliver: It’s fine, Walter, I’ve been in a courtroom before.
Tommy: Four times by my estimate. You know, there was the DUI, the assault on that paparazzi douchebag, stealing that taxi, which was just awesome, by the way, and who could forget peeing on the cop?
Moira: I wish everyone would.

Laurel: What are you doing here?
Oliver: Oh, they were bringing me back from the dead. Legally speaking.

Laurel: Oliver just got back from five years on an uncharted island. Before that, he was cheating on me with my sister. He was with her when she died. And last week, he told me to stay away from him. It was really good advice. Excuse me.

Moira: I hired you to protect my son. Now, I’m not a professional bodyguard, but it seems to me that the first requirement would be managing to stay next to the man you’re hired to protect.
Diggle: With all due respect, ma’am, I never had a client who didn’t want my protection.

Oliver: Thea, do you think this is what Dad would want for you?
Thea: Dead people don’t want anything. It’s one of the benefits of being dead.

Quentin: Well, I owe you an apology, Mr. Somers. We come all the way down to your docks, and it turns out, you don’t need the police after all.
Somers: Which is exactly what I’ve been saying.
Quentin: Yeah. So I guess that 9-1-1 call that we got last night from your stevedore, saying that you were getting attacked by a guy in a green hood and a bow and arrow… I-I guess…I guess that, well… Hmm. Was that a practical joke?
Somers: These guys like to fool around.
Quentin: Yeah. [Scoffs] Well, you know, I’d be very much inclined to believe an honest, upstanding businessman like yourself, except, well, one of my men found this at your docks.
[Quentin pulls a green arrow out of an evidence bag and shows it to Somers.]
Quentin: You see, there’s this vigilante running around. He thinks he’s some kind of Robin Hood. He’s robbing the rich, he’s trying to teach them a lesson I guess. I don’t know, I don’t know. But the point is… the man’s a killer. And nothing, and no one, is going to stop me from bringing him down. But like you said…

Walter: I remember when your father used to bring you here when you were a boy. You always were so excited.
Oliver: Dad let me drink soda in the office.
Moira: Ah, so that’s why you enjoyed coming.

Moira: Sweetheart, Oliver, Walter and I have something to discuss with you. Come, please sit.
Oliver: Mom, it makes me nervous when you ask me to sit down.

Walter: Everyone here understands that this transition is really difficult for you.
Oliver: Thank you, Walter. Which part, though? Everyone fantasizing that I got my MBA while I was on the island? Or the fact that my father’s CFO now sleeps down the hall from me?
[Moira starts walking away, but turns around and looks at Oliver.]
Moira: You know, five years ago, your irresponsibility was somewhat charming. It is a lot less so now.

Oliver: Wow. This place hasn’t changed in five years. (Chuckling)
Laurel (frustrated): I haven’t really had time to redecorate.
Oliver: I’m a jerk. Before the island, I was a jerk. And now I’m just a… I’m a damaged jerk.

Oliver: I thought about many things on the island, but there was one thing that I thought about every day. I actually dreamed about it, and I promised myself that if I ever got a chance to do it again, I’d do it with you.
[Oliver holds up a tub of ice cream.]
Oliver: Eat ice cream.

Quentin: Oh, thank God. Thank God. Are you all right?
Laurel: I’m okay. Those cops that you put on me…
Quentin: [Sighs] They…
Diggle: I went outside to ask for a light, and they were both dead in the squad car.
Quentin: It’s okay. Mr. Diggle, thank you. Feel free to run as many red lights in the city as you want.

Quentin: Your job is not going after people like the Triad or Somers.
Laurel: My job is to use the law to fight for what is right. Just like you taught me.
Quentin: Well, that’s dirty: using me against me. You can’t do that.

Tommy: Your funeral blew.

Oliver: Did you get lucky?

Tommy: Fish in a barrell. They were so sad…

Oliver: No…

Tommy: And huggy…And I am counting on another target rich environment for your welcome home bash.

Oliver: At my what?

Tommy: You came back from the dead. This calls for a party.


Tommy: So what’d you miss most? Steaks at the Palm? Drinks at the Station? Meaningless sex?

Oliver: Laurel.

Tommy: Everyone is happy you’re alive. You want to see the one person who isn’t?


Joanna: It’s fun being your friend. I get to say “I told you so” a lot.
