Every week in Sound Bites, EW compiles the best lines uttered in film, television, and pop culture. This week’s quotes include the inevitable “plowing fields” metaphor on The Bachelor, Brandi Glanville’s tendency to overshare on The Celebrity Apprentice, and astute winter-wear observations from Mindy Kaling. Here are this week’s Sound Bites culled from television and social media.
Tag: Revenge (1-10 of 54)
Question one: Is Revenge back?
Question two: Are we destined to ask this same question at the end of every Revenge finale — at least, every finale that follows season 1?
PopWatch Planner: Cristina leaves 'Grey's Anatomy,' 'Godzilla' takes over theaters, a new Black Keys album, and more
Too many finales, too little time! That seems to be the theme of the week, with eight finales on the agenda in eight days. But don’t think that’s all this week has to offer. Thanks to Godzilla, your summer blockbuster tour can continue. Plus, there’s a new Black Keys album to keep you company in all of your post-finale mood swings.
Here’s what your week looks like:
April showers bring May finales! OK, so that’s not exactly how the saying goes, but it is true. May is a month full of memorable goodbyes, and for this week, that includes The Tomorrow People, The Mindy Project, and Revenge. However, with Neighbors and Chef in theaters, there will be very little time for mourning.
Here’s how your week is looking: READ FULL STORY
Every girl has an idea of what their perfect wedding would be, and a fair share of them probably have a Pinterest board to prove it. My ideas have been inspired by a handful of movies, TV shows, pictures, real-life events, and so on. However, the single biggest inspiration was Caleb and Julie’s wedding from season 1 of The O.C. Before you judge me, there are actually only two things I liked about their wedding: Their first dance to Jem’s cover of “Maybe I’m Amazed,” and the idea of getting married in a glass chapel. Take one look at that view and tell me it’s not amazing:

As we head into the holiday season, it’s time to cherish the final weeks before all of our favorite television shows go on their winter hiatuses. As much as it hurts to say goodbye, mid-season finales mark the (second) best — behind actual season finales, of course — time of the year for TV.
So this week is all about catching every possible mid-season finale that you can, and then running to the theater for a little Jennifer Lawrence-Bradley Cooper reunion.
All times listed are Eastern.
Bonnie & Clyde, 9 p.m., simulcasted by A&E, Lifetime, and The History Channel
Emile Hirsch stars as Clyde Barrow and The Borgias‘ Holliday Grainger plays Bonnie Parker in this two-night miniseries about the ’30s crime couple.
Sleepy Hollow, 9 p.m., Fox
John Noble returns as Henry Parrish, who helps Ichabod contact Katrina. Long story short: They end up releasing a monster from purgatory. Or, if you’re not one for monsters, the episode will also tell us more about Ichabod’s recently revealed son.
Santa Claus Is Comin’ to Town, 8 p.m. ABC
When it comes to getting in the holiday spirit, this classic story of the legend of Santa Claus, featuring the voices of Fred Astaire and Mickey Rooney, is the perfect ending to a long day. Bonus: Pair it with a nice cup of hot chocolate.
American Country Awards, 8 p.m., Fox
Country fans won’t want to miss performances by Sara Evans, Sheryl Crow, Florida Georgia Line, and more. Did we mention it’s hosted by Trace Adkins and Danica Patrick?
R. Kelly’s Black Panties hits shelves
So R. Kelly has a new album. And it’s called Black Panties.
Arrow, 8 p.m., The CW
The mid-season finale of Arrow promises action, more Barry Allen, and a death. Basically, everything you could ask for. And if you’re watching Arrow, you might as well stick around for the mid-season finale of The Tomorrow People at 9 p.m. on The CW. Unless, of course, one shocking finale is all you can take in one night.
Scandal, 10 p.m., ABC
Thursday night is the mid-season finale jackpot. From The Vampire Diaries to Grey’s Anatomy, Parenthood, Reign, and the always shocking Scandal, you can’t go wrong. However, Liv dealing with her father (and Sally dealing with her “sin”) is at the top of our list.
American Hustle in theaters
David O. Russell’s newest film stars the likes of Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, and Jeremy Renner. It’s the The Fighter-Silver Linings Playbook collision we’ve been waiting for.
College Basketball, 5:15 p.m., ESPN
If you’re a fan of college basketball, this NCAA match-up between Kentucky and North Carolina is a must-see.
Revenge, 9 p.m., ABC
Revenge‘s mid-season finale is all about Emily and Daniel’s wedding. And if we have learned anything, blood shed is never out of the question in The Hamptons … not even on a wedding day.
Revenge‘s new season is off to a strong start, but if you’re looking for scoop on what’s next on Emily Thorne’s Revengenda, join EW today at 1p.m. PT/ 4p.m. ET for a Google+ hangout with Gabriel Mann and EW’s Sandra Gonzalez!
That’s right, we’re putting the actor, who plays quippy computer wiz Nolan, in the hot seat and grilling him on the third season. Want to take part? Watch live below or join us via the Google+ events page.
When a colleague came over earlier today and asked if I’d seen last night’s Revenge promos teasing a “love rumpus,” I thought to myself, “That’s ridiculous and brilliant, and I have no idea what it means. Also, people don’t use the word ‘rumpus’ enough.” But after re-watching the promos, I realized what they were getting at: Emily Thorne is deciding amongst (not between — that implies two) three elligible men, including her fiance, her ex, and her true love. Spoiler: They’re all smokin’ hot.
I went back to my colleague and explained my discovery, which caused us to watch the promo for a third time. That’s when we finally understood that it wasn’t talking about “the Hamptons’ hottest love rumpus” — it was talking about “the Hamptons’ hottest love rhombus.”
Our favorite Hamptons heiress/Revengess is back for another summer.
After a lackluster season two that played out more like a soap opera running out of cast members to cannibalize and less like the thrilling hairpin-turn ride that was season one, there’s a lot riding on season three to deliver for fans. So is the brilliant, masterminding Emily that we knew and loved from season one back for good?
After last night’s premiere? Not so sure yet. But we do see the return of her lifetime supply of permanent markers, a much-needed departure of Ashley, a reappearance of friend/foe Aidan, and some steamy Emily/Jack romantic action. In terms of past Revenge premieres, this one ranks the lowest, because it lacked edge-of-your-seat-surprise and it focused mostly on tying up dangling plot ends.
It begins with that flash forward of Emily getting shot twice in wedding dress and we never return to the scene, except later on we know Emily has finally set a date to get married on August 8. Which is “8/8,” and also the infinity symbol that has so much meaning to her. At a Memorial Day celebration, Emily poisons Conrad and fixes his test results to indicate that he has Huntington’s Disease. The diagnosis is leaked to the press and Conrad must resign from his post as governor. Aware of Emily’s real identity, Jack takes a stand and gives Emily a revenge deadline: “Finish this by the end of the summer and leave for good. Or I’ll tell everyone the truth.”
Here’s where the characters stand: READ FULL STORY
