Quotes of the Week: Good Trouble, Ghosts, CSI: Vegas, Shōgun and More

Tonight’s Oscars unfortunately don’t have a “Best Lines From This Week’s TV Episodes” category — honestly, it’d be weird if they did — so allow us to handle that accolade via our latest Quotes of the Week compilation.

In the list below, we’ve gathered more than a dozen of TV’s most memorable sound bites from the past seven days, including moments both scripted and unscripted from broadcast and cable series.
