    Alot of these lines need to credit the actors for giving them the real zing. The ones I haven’t seen, the line doesn’t leap off the page, but I know that with the right delivery it becomes magic. Such an interesting process bringing the page to life.

    Bill Hader and Barry in everything (2 babka)
    The Great - Elle Fanning, Nicholas Hoult and comedy writing and directing

    Severance in drama series, writing, Adam Scott for best actor, Ben Stiller for drama directing, and the whole cast in supporting.

    “So, he knew you and was like.. MORE!?”

    This thread is becoming more and more proof that Janelle James should be running away with the Emmy.

    On paper this line would never be considered best written, but it’s her delivery that takes me all the way out and an instant fav line/ moment of the season

    Not a line but a speech:

    “I could send her a picture of herself sleeping, as a way of saying, ‘Hey, not cool, what you did to Sally.’ The whole point is to isolate her and make her feel like she’s going insane. Replace her dog with a slightly different dog. Change the furniture in her house so she thinks she’s shrinking. Basic stuff, mostly I learned in the military, some of it on a sub-Reddit. Basically you plant a seed and then they just hang themselves. So it’s super-nonviolent. But by the end, her brain will have eventually eaten itself.”

    dunno if this counts since it’s two lines but it’s by far the best-written exchange of this cycle imo:

    “Do you want a deal with the devil?”
    “Well, what am I gonna do with a soul anyways?”

    Succession – “All The Bells Say”

    “Will America be as kind to a female Ted Lasso who leaves her family to go abroad?” (girls5eva)

    I loved it at the end of the episode when there’s a random person who sees Dawn and starts heckling her telling her she can never be a female Ted Lasso lol.

    I just started season 2 of The Great and the season premiere really shoots out stupendous one liners like a cannon gun lol.

    “I’m sorry that you’ve interpreted me saving your life as a betrayal. It is a punitive, narrow view of things and does not speak well for your character.”

    “As I’ve watched you, you’ve begun to more and more resemble a ripe apple. I was about to bite your cheek out.”

    “I look at you and become dry like sand.”
