With the Fall TV season back in full swing my friends and I have scoured the channels for the funniest, silliest, most engaging, dramatic or compelling dialogue on TV this week. Here are the Dish’s picks for the Top Ten TV Quotes Of The Week!
# 10 “I know about you and that woman. She’s so old!”
-- AMC’s “Mad Men”

# 8 “I thought it was you. He had an accent.”
-- the CW’s “Gossip Girl”

# 4. “Here is what I am saying to you: If you don’t vote, you’re a moron. Not voting is a vote - no it isn’t!! Not voting is just being stupid. Voting is not sexy. Voting is not hip. It is not fashionable. It is not a movie. It is not a videogame. Frankly, voting is a pain in the ass. But here is a word. Look it up. It’s your duty to vote!”
-- CBS’s “The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson”
