As the year comes to a close, the annual Twitter tradition of recalling the year’s best television lines has come around. Using the hashtag BestTVLines2017, Variety’s Maureen Ryan and Uproxx TV critic Alan Sepinwall kicked things off last week.
Ryan initiated with Olenna Tyrell’s (Diana Rigg) defiant words on Game Of Thrones: “Tell Cersei. I want her to know it was me.”
Sepinwall replied with his favourite: “That’s the guy I was telling you about,” from The Leftovers.
Here are the best TV lines of the year, according to Twitter:
“I may be a pretty s--- boyfriend, but it turns out I’m actually a pretty damn good babysitter.” - Stranger Things 2
“Betty’s ponytail is iconic and beyond reproach.” – Riverdale
“Moonlight, you guys won best picture. This is not a joke.” – 89th Academy Awards Telecast
