Line(s) of the Day #Seinfeld

Elaine George and Jerry

Elaine: Married women don’t “get together”. They have affairs.
George: Oh my God, an affair. That’s so adult. It’s like with stockings and martinis, and William Holden. On the other hand it probably wouldn’t cost me any money.

Julia Louis Dreyfus and Jason Alexander in the gloriously brilliant sitcom Seinfeld (1989 – 1998). You can find my reasons for it being the best sitcom ever here.


Line(s) of the Day #Coupling

Coupling tv show

Susan Walker: I’d like to think that the man I’m going to spend the rest of my life with has a better reason for staying faithful than, “It might be a trick.”
Steve Taylor: Well, it wasn’t the only thing! It was just like the… deterrent.
Susan Walker: The deterrent?
Steve Taylor: Well, yeah. You know, like nuclear weaponry. I mean, nobody likes it, but it can help to keep the peace.
Susan Walker: Steve, you’ve just compared our relationship to the Cold War.
Steve Taylor: Which, may I remind you, really lasted.

Sarah Alexander and Jack Davenport in the comedy Coupling (2000 – 2004). Written by Steven Moffat (who would later write episodes of Dr Who and co-create Sherlock), it told of the dating dilemmas of a group of three male and three female 20 and 30 somethings.
