I don’t know about the rest of you, but it feels as if #droughtlander will never end. The folks at Outlander Starz continue to toy with us, promising a season two premiere in April — sometime. Meanwhile, touch grumpy.
To help pass the time, I decided to do a wrap-up of favorite lines from the TV show. Some of them are right from the book, because let’s face it, the main reason the show is so good is because the original material exists. Thank you Diana Gabaldon. To prep for this post, I needed to rewatch the episodes again do a lot of important research to find these quotes. I also asked around the web and social media for suggestions. Here, without further ado, are some of my — and your — favorite lines from the TV show. It’s not complete, but of course we can all keep adding to it (add your favorites in the comment section below) — and rewatching the episodes again. 🙂
Before I start, I want to offer fans another option for getting your Outlander fix. Every week on Facebook, a very dedicated reader and show fan, France Vincent, posts AMAZING excerpts from the books. If you’ve read the books, you will relish reliving each and every scene she meticulously picks. If you haven’t read the books, let this serve as inspiration. If these excerpts don’t get you going, I don’t know what will. You can read her excerpts at Toutlander (France’s group), Heughan’s Heughligans, and Outlander Series.
On to the lines — with this caveat: These are not ALL the great lines. They’re just to get the conversation going. Let’s all add to the list below and share the Outlander love! And now, in no particular order….
From “Both Sides Now”:
Jamie: “Is it usual, what it is between us when I touch you, when you lie with me? Is it always so between a man and a woman?”
Claire: “It’s often something like this…No, this isn’t usual. It’s different.”
From “The Devil’s Mark”:
Geillis: “It looks like I’m going to a fucking barbecue.”

Also this one:
Jamie: “I swore an oath before the alter of God to protect this woman. If you’re telling me you think your authority to be greater than the Almighty, I must tell you I’m not of that opinion myself. The first man forward will be the first man down.”
And this one: clearly I like this episode a lot.
Jamie: “Aye, I believe you, Sassenach. Although it would have been a good deal easier if you’d only been a witch.”
And of course from “The Wedding”… besides the obvious “ye are blood of my blood….”:
Claire: “Where did you learn to kiss like that?”
Jamie: “I said I was a virgin, not a monk. If I need guidance, I’ll ask.”
From “By the Pricking of my Thumbs”:
Dougal to Jamie and Claire as they say good-bye: “I said kiss her, dinna swallow her.”
From “The Way Out:”
Murtagh to Claire: “He needs a woman, no a lassie. Laogherie will be a lassie ’til she’s 50.”

From “The Gathering”: Angus and Claire as Claire plots her escape…

Angus: “That’s no Rhenish.”
Claire: “It’s port.”
Angus: “It’s very strong.”
Angus: “I canna keep my legs.”
Claire: “It’s a sedative.”
Angus: “Is that Spanish?”
And last but so not least from “The Reckoning,” the episode that wins Best Episode IMHO:
Jamie to Claire just before the best make-up sex scene ever written/produced for TV:
“I want you Claire. I want you so much I can scarcely breathe. Will you have me?”
Jamie to Claire after the best make-up sex scene written/produced for TV:
“I am your master and you are mine. It seems I canna possess you without losing my soul.”
