Best Lines of the Week (November 7-12): ‘Be Kind to Everyone’

B Positive, Dancing with the Stars, The Good Doctor
CBS; ABC (2)

As our beloved fall shows kick into full gear, we are reaching new heights of comedy, truth and, of course, über-relevant 2020 drama. With a fan favorite This Is Us couple going through a whirlwind adoption process and The Good Doctor‘s St. Bonaventure Hospital grappling with the coronavirus pandemic, we’ve truly seen ourselves on our TV screens this week.

Thanks to the light-hearted, but genuine quips of B Positive and the creative approach to equality discussed on Saturday Night Live, we’ve still had a week of TV that both lifted our spirits and inspired us to be the best versions of ourselves – even during a time of uncertainty and unrest.

Check out the gallery to see what TV show quotes we fell in love with this week.
