The 15 Most Badass Lines in TV History

The 15 Most Badass Lines in TV History has selected some of the most testosterone-infused and empowering lines of dialogue spoken on television in recent memory. Check out our picks in the gallery below!

Nothing beats an electric script—solid character development, a vivid setting and a good plot are all fine and dandy; however, all of that is the catalyst for which badassery is born. A show’s ability to build up to and produce some fist-bump worthy, all-encompassing and resonant words, spoken within a single scene can make or break an episode. This is one of the most popular aspects of television; the portion of storytelling that is quoted and discussed around the watercooler at work the next day.

That being said, it’s tough to encapsulate the uniqueness of an iconic character in only a few lines of dialogue; more often than not, those lines carry subtext that has been earned up until the particular moment of badassery. Homer Simpson couldn’t rant about being the one who knocks…could he? Regardless of all that, here’s a collection of some well-known contemporary characters dropping the mic the only way they know how—on television.
