Supernatural:
“Too much love, too much love!” -Jared Padalecki

 

Captain America/Avengers Love Fest:
“I demand a most warm welcome for the man reprising the role of Bruce Banner, Mark Ruffalo!” -Robert Downey, Jr.

“I thought it [‘Inception’] was the most ambitious movie I’ve ever seen. And then I thought, “Marvel is going to put all its superheroes in one movie — that’s the most ambitious movie I’ve ever seen.’ ” -Robert Downey, Jr.

“My first movie was ‘Henry V,’ and it contained an epic battle and a man with a very
dysfunctional family.” -Kenneth Branagh defending his qualifications for directing ‘Thor.’

Chuck (which I don’t watch, but I love the cast of “Firefly”!):
“I get beat up a lot by girls.” -Adam Baldwin

 

Fringe:
“Leonard (Nimoy) has now retired twice. He’s our Brett Favre.” –Jeff Pinkner (producer)
*By the by, anyone hear Mr. Nimoy in ‘Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon’? Spoiler Alert! A piece of my soul died when I found out his character is a traitor. I kept
thinking, “Spock would NEVER do this.”

 

Vampire Diaries:
“Paul Wesley’s hair has its own cell number on the call sheet.” -Julie Plec

“Paul’s abs are their own conversation.” -Kevin Williamson (producer)

“The nice Damon freaks me out. I was miserable, I didn’t know what to do.” -Ian Somerhalder on goodwill, which his character occasionally dabbles in

Fan: “You seem like a nice guy.”
Ian: “I’m acting.”

 

Green Lantern:
“We’re married now, but in space.” –Ryan Reynolds to the fan who won his character’s power ring

 

The Joss Whedon Experience (yes, that’s the real title, and reason enough to attend the entire conference in my book):

“If this [table I’m sitting on] falls, it will be the BEST CON EVER.” –Joss Whedon, it was his proverbial party, after all

Joss: How much trouble would I get in if I told you my favorite actor?
Fan: I won’t tell anyone.

Fan: Joss means “God” in Filipino.
Joss: Oh yeeaah. And it didn’t before me.

“It makes me throw up in fear.” –Joss Whedon about J.J. Abrams’s Star Trek reboot movie

 

Fringe:
“In the audition [for ‘Scott Pilgrim Versus the World’] he was like ‘Here are the lines you have to do, and I noticed that you’re being trained in Tae Kwon Do. Could you just throw some kicks in there while you’re reading?’ So I was practicing in the hallway and a guy walked by and he was like, ‘Wow, they’re really upping the hall monitors!'” -Ellen Wong

 

Aloha: Earth:
“I’m really happy to be on a show that has a theme song.” –Daniel Dae Kim, who went from ‘Lost’ to ‘Hawaii Five-O’ before ‘Aloha:Earth’

 

Psych:
“SPOILER NAME, Gus can’t marry you, because he’s already married to me [Shawn]. I still think we should stay here and drink all this alcohol and eat all this delicious food, but at the end of the night he’s coming home with me.” – James Roday, demonstrating what his character Shawn’s best man speech for Gus would be like

 

Dexter:
“People were a lot more concerned about the fact that my character on Six Feet Under got walked all over than Dexter killing people. Which is weird.” –Michael C. Hall

 

White Collar/Mozzie Quote of the Week:
“As you know, ‘White Collar’ is about a very suave, sophisticated, sexy white collar criminal who CHOOSES to be bald. And there’s some other characters, too.” –Willie Garson

 

Unknown:
“You were so cute. You were a little boy. And now you’re not.” -Eva Mendes to a
fan who called her “foxy” at a past Comic Con. After his question, she told him with a hug that he was “a little young….come back in five years. “ Tad-dah!
*Don’t you love the persistence of nerdy fans?
