On Elsbeth, Sammy inadvertently reveals a motive while discussing a suspect's winnings, saying, "Look, he was adamant about his wife not knowing. Even collecting his winnings. That's why I'm trying to sell my truck. But now I don't have to. I'm free and clear. Realizing what he just said. And I just gave you motive, didn't I? Pretty sloppy, Sammy."

NCIS: Hawai'i delivers a witty line from Luna Angel Parker, quipping, "You couldn't separate the gangs to different hospitals. I left my sorting hat at the station." Meanwhile, on Hacks, Patton Oswalt humorously observes about Deborah, "I've never understood why Deborah is so huge with gay men, and then I met her and I realized, oh, she smells like poppers and her face looks like a nut sack."

Doctor Who delivers an impactful quote from Ruby Sunday, played by Millie Gibson, reflecting, "We did almost die. Yes. But we lived so much too." Girls on the Bus also offers a relatable line from Kimberlyn, portrayed by Christina Elmore, saying, "If you're watching this, I know you saw Hamilton."

Chicago P.D. provides a poignant moment with Platt, played by Amy Morton, offering wisdom, "Sometimes I think you carry so much water. And then you think, 'If I'm going to stay afloat, there is no margin for error.' But let me tell you something, you're not a machine. There are two things you can do with guilt. You can let it drown you or let it give you purpose."

Other notable quotes come from the Kevin Hart Roast on Saturday Night Live, with Nikki Glaser joking, "You really gotta hand it to Kevin Hart because he can't reach.
