Best Lines of the Week (July 9-15): ‘Don’t Let That Hurt Child Make Your Grown Up Decisions’

RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars

This week was chock full of season premieres and new show premieres, between Dr. Pimple Popper trying to help Roger with his severe case of rhinophyma, the Never Have I Ever Season 2 premiere with Devi trying to make a difficult decision, and the American Horror Stories premiere beginning the anthology series with the story of a daughter and her two fathers moving into a new home with a dark past.

But we also saw the end of Loki this week. On RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars, Kylie Sonique Love gave some heartfelt advice to Rajah O’Hara. Miracle Workers was a little too relatable to the current world of events with COVID-19 as Reverend Ezekiel Brown (Daniel Radcliffe) tries to avoid cholera in the 1840s American West. And you can always count on Dave and Rick and Morty to give us great one-liners.
