It's Bartlet's Quotations for televsion! One of us gives a topic, the next person offers a quote from a T.V. show about said topic, then adds another topic. Easy, right?

I'll start, with something fairly current: sex scandals.

"Times have changed a little and as much as we are a family here at Dunder Mifflin, there comes a time when the daddy cannot take a bath with the kids anymore. I am upper management and it would be inappropriate for me to take a bath with Pam. As much as I might want to." - Michael Scott (The Office: "Sexual Harassment")

"The problem is, gangs in prison are divided up like my Dad's sock drawer....by color. I was too white to join the Latino gang, the Asian gang or the Black gang and not white enough to join the Albino gang. So, I went with the only gang that might take me. The White Supremacists. Which meant unlearning what every after school special had taught me. Don't be yourself." -Earl Hickey My Name is Earl: "My Name Is Inmate 28301-016"

I have a feeling we're going to see a lot of Simpsons/Office quotes:

Homer: Lenny and Carl are never around on Wednesday, and they never tell me where they are going . It's like a conspiracy or something.
Bart: A conspiracy, eh? Do you think they were involved in the Kennedy assassination in some way.
Homer: I do... now.

"So I go upstairs, as I'm walking down the hall I try to prepare myself for what I'm going to see when I walk into my bedroom. I step on a man's jacket that doesn't belong to me. And everything I know...just shifts. Because the jacket that doesn't belong to me is a jacket that I recognize, what I know now is that when I go into my bedroom, I'm not just going to see that my wife is cheating on me. I'm going to see that my wife is cheating on me with Mark, who happened to be my best friend.... I walked out, flew out to Seattle."

Inspector Moffat: Image, Constable, that's what we're talking about here. The basis of all diplomatic relations is not who you are but who the other side thinks you are. Now, I've worked very hard creating an image of Canadians we can all be proud of.
Benton Fraser: Yes, Sir.
Inspector Moffat: You on the other hand have been doing everything in your power to wreak havoc on that image.
Benton Fraser: Sir?
Inspector Moffat: All this do-gooding, Constable! Picking up litter, rescuing kittens, saving people's lives ... what sort of message do you suppose that sends to the Americans?
Benton Fraser: That we care, Sir?
Inspector Moffat: Exactly! And people don't fear people who care!
Benton Fraser: I'm sorry, Sir. I wasn't aware that we want Americans to fear us.

Buffy: Okay. You do remember that you're a vampire, right?
Spike: We like to talk big. Vampires do. 'I'm going to destroy the world.' That's just tough guy talk. Strutting around with your friends over a pint of blood. The truth is, I like this world. You've got... dog racing, Manchester United. And you've got people. Billions of people walking around like Happy Meals with legs. It's all right here. But then someone comes along with a vision. With a real... passion for destruction. Angel could pull it off. Goodbye, Piccadilly. Farewell, Leicester Bloody Square. You know what I'm saying?
Buffy: Okay, fine. You're not down with Angel. Why would you ever come to me?

Gossip Girl: They say a leopard can't change his spots. But some things do change. The path not taken can become a road trip. Being grounded can lead to something groundbreaking. And whether they're sweating it out on the sultry sidewalks or cooling their heels in the Hamptons, no one does summer like New Yorkers. Grab your shades and your sunblock. This one looks like a scorcher. Until next time. You know you love me. XOXO Gossip Girl (Much 'I Do' About Nothing)
