Speechless is a great new show. Family dynamics usually draw me in which is why I also love the Middle, the Goldberg’s, Modern Family, Blackish, the Real O’Neal’s, Fresh Off the Boat, and so on.
I was going to create a matching game on TV one-liners but doing so is too hard to format. So here in no particular order are a few lines that made me smile or otherwise struck a cord:
Ray “I decided to take a year off from women, you know celibacy”
Mom “Oh darling, whatever will the women do?”
From Modern Family
Gloria “Being a parent is like being the model, you learn to live on crumbs”
From The Middle
Mike “Everyone knows there’s only four fun jobs: Baseball player, football player, basketball player and bounty hunter”
Frankie gives a look
Mike “what? bounty hunter is cool!”
Mike to Sue when asking what she should major in …
“I am not trying to scare you but it’s hard living like we do. What I hope for you kids is that things can be different”
Life imitating art, sort of any way. Last week’s Jack and Diane, blue collar / white collar episode of Blackish deserves a blog all it’s own. Powerful message about what we as parent’s want for our kids. Good stuff!
As always, more to come.
