Episode 707


Drake Tribal Council

Jon: (voting confessional against Shawn) F*** you.

Morgan Tribal Council

(After the discussion about Osten deciding to quit the game, Jeff and the tribe ultimately honor his wishes)

Jeff: Well, Osten - I don't pretend to know what you're thinking either, but I know this: I've been to about a hundred Tribal Councils. Never, ever seen anybody lay down their torch. So, this is a first for me. Seems unanimous. I just want to make sure. Savage - you're going to indulge Osten, sending him home?
Andrew: Yes.
Jeff: Darrah?
Darrah: Yeah.
Jeff: Rhino?
Ryan O.: Yep.
Jeff: T?
Tijuana: Yes.
Jeff: No need to vote and waste any more time. Grab your torch.

(Osten grabs his torch and places it into the ceremonial holder)

Jeff: Osten, per your wishes (he snuffs out the torch)...go home."

(Osten leaves the Tribal Council area and Jeff pulls his torch out of the holder and throws it to the ground)

Jeff: With all due respect to Osten, people work too damn hard to stay in this game and fight to stay alive. He wants to lay his torch down? So it shall be. Who knows? Maybe this is the best thing to happen to the Morgan tribe. All I know is, you will head back to camp. Soon, a new tribe member will arrive, and I can promise you this: That person wants to be in this game. Grab your torches, head on back. Good night.

Episode 711

Jon (Jonny Fairplay): How's Grandma?
Dan ("Thunder" Dan Fields), Jon's friend: She died, dude. (Jon's grandmother was actually alive and well; this exchange was a deliberately staged ploy to get sympathy from the other contestants.)

Jon: My grandmother's sitting home watching Jerry Springer right now. (laughs)

Jeff Probst: Before we get to today's challenge, I want to address something that happened yesterday. Richard Hatch sorta being inappropriate?
Sue Hawk: Sorta
Jeff: Anybody have any comments?
Sue: I was sexually violated. To have some guy come up, he passed a half a dozen people on platforms and never touched um.
Jeff: Sue, I'm, I'm..
Sue: And he went too far, and he crossed the line, and he crossed the line with me.
Jeff: Well..
Sue: OK, I know you don't know, and you didn't see it because his back was to you and he's too big of a F****** slob to see around. I WAS VIOLATED, HUMILIATED, DEHUMANIZED AND TOTALLY SPENT, JEFF! IT WASN'T SORTA, JEFF! Cause your, his back was to you, Jeff. That's all I' saying, and I'm F****** spent, and I'm done with this F****** game. There is no way that I can continue with my F****** emotions pushing the ground that much.
Jeff: So, OK so when you say you're done with the game, as in, you want out of the game?
Sue: I'm done, I'm walking away.
Jeff: Let me ask you guys, did anything come up at your camp about it?
Mogo Mogo Tribe: No, we didn't know.
Sue: It was all done in front of our platform.
Colby Donaldson: Yeah, I saw it Sue, and the thing is were, trust me, I mean, you know from the first season, maybe you guys don't, living with a guy being naked sucks because he's naked all the time.
Sue: I don't give a sh** that he is naked, if he would have just walked by me and never F****** touched me it would have been fine. But he did, and that is the F****** point.
Jeff: Does it have any impact that he is out of the game, or not?
Sue: No, I, I, no, my mind left this game 24 hours ago.
Jeff: Lets, uh, if we can bring in the boat, A.S.A.P
Shii Ann Huang: I'm so sorry Sue, I'm so sorry. I didn't see him, I'm so sorry

Crystal: (In a very loud voice towards Randy) YOU HAVE MADE MY LIFE HELL FROM DAY 1! FORGET YOU, GO HOME, GOODBYE!
Corinne: I'm holding this up for a minute so it seems like I am voting for Randy. I'm voting for you, Susie, because payback is a bitch.


Corinne: (Talking to Sugar) You are an unemployed, uneducated, leech on society. And the only thing I would vote to give you, is a handful of anti-depressants so that nobody has to be subjected to your constant crying anymore. And maybe if you got some, it may seem more sincere when you are crying about your dead father. You don't deserve the million.

Episode 2009

J.T's letter : Russell, (READ IN COMPLETE PRIVACY). This is a huge turning point in this game. This is not fake, I wouldn't waste your time or mine. Just by competing against you and the few handshakes we've had I feel I can trust you. That's hard to find in this game. Hopefully we are on the same page. Play the idol tonight and save yourself. All the girls should be writing your name down, so act like you know you're going home. You can stand up and play it right before Jeff starts reading the votes. I think you should write Parvati's name down and send her home. No matter what, when you play the idol, you're safe for the entire tribal council. We will most likely merge at ten people and then you will be completely safe with us. Our five plus you will remain strong until the girls are done with. We can then work on getting ourselves into the final three. Hopefully I can trust you and you're not truly a Villain. Let's do this together. See you soon. Destroy this right when you finish reading!
Russell: Now I don’t even need to find idols. People are actually giving me idols. You don’t hand the enemy the idol, especially when his name is Russell Hantz. You don’t do that. That’s a no-no.
Parvati: *while laughing* Russell, read in complete privacy. This is a huge turning point in this game. This is not fake, I wouldn't waste your time or mine. Play the idol tonight...
Russell: For sure.
Parvati: ...and save yourself. Because clearly you're on the outside of an all-devouring female alliance. *To Russell* I put that in myself. *continue reading* So act like you are going home....*Stop reading* I can't believe he's writing all of this?!
Russell: "He's telling me what to do. He's giving me pointers
Russell (in the commentating area): How do you give the idol king an idol? "Here Mr. Russell, here’s an idol, this one’s just for you". Why thank you. You know what I think that J.T. have just handed to me a million dollars. Hey, I guess he can afford it.
Parvati: I think you should write Parvati's name down and send her home...*Stop reading* Why's everyone throwing me under the bus and not knowing what's going on over here?! *continue reading* Our five plus you will remain strong. We can then work on getting ourselves into the final three.*Stop Reading* Big promises, J.T. *Continue reading* Hopefully I can trust you and you're not truly a Villain.
Russell: Yes I am!
Parvati: Let's do this together. See you soon. BFF Forever. XOXO. Destroy this right when you finish reading! *Starts to crack up after reading it* Oh my god! I can't believe he wrote you a letter. What are we, in fifth grade? He's passing notes? What is wrong with this kid? I can't believe that kid won.
Parvati: Why would you hand a Villain your heart? J.T. gave Russell his heart today, and Russell is just going to stab it *laughing* a million times over, and hand it to me. And I’m going to eat it. *laughs*.

Survivor: Redemption Island

Jeff Probst: Whatever you have in your tank, you need to use it right now!

Survivor: One World


Episode 2401

Jeff Probst: (in the absence of Redemption Island of this season) That means when you are voted out this season, there is no second chance. You go home.

Episode 2406

Colton: I don't really care if Christina knows she's going home next. There's nothing that can save her.
Colton: (to Christina) You can enjoy your last two days, you can quit, or you can jump in that fire. Whichever is more convenient for you.
Colton: I got this pain and it literally feels like somebody's got a knife cutting from my belly button to the right side.
Jeff Probst: (at tribal council; tells to what is now final twelve) You are now one tribe. Twelve people fighting for a million bucks.
Colton: Tell Sabrina thanks for the souvenir.

Survivor: Philippines


Episode 2501

Russell: The last time I played, Survivor smacked me in the chops, and this time, I'm smacking back.
Jonathan: Thirty-nine days from now, I will make a million dollars.
Dawson: (on Jeff Kent) I used to spend time with a guy who is really into baseball, so I know who Jeff Kent is. There is no mention of him being a former professional athlete who made probably $30,000,000 in his career. I don't think the other tribe members know, and I think Jeff likes it that way, but I will tell him that I know, as soon as it becomes valuable to me.
Lisa: We filmed the last episode of The Facts of Life in March of '88. I got married in July of '88. After that, I left show business behind. I lost all the money that I made from The Facts of Life. A bunch of money invested, a lot of it kinda went the way of the 80's crash. Being on Survivor at this season of my life is just a godsend. Because I've been running and running from the time I was a little kid, to slow down and go inside and find out: Who am I? Am I more than a mom? Am I more than a child star? So I am just excited because I love the game. But in a whole new level, I'm really excited of what will change inside me.

Episode 2502

Malcolm: (commenting on his cuddling with Angie) When I first saw Angie, I kept having to remind myself, "Don't get booty blinded. Don't get booty blinded. You're here to play Survivor."
Abi: I notice that you and Mike are very close and it's starting to worry me.
R.C.: Mike's like my father.
Abi: This is a game. It doesn't matter if you like Mike or not. You go off together and whispering...
R.C.: Yeah, but I feel the same way about you and Pete.
Abi: But we don't switch conversations when people walk up to us. (to camera) If she screws me over, that's it, she's dead to me.
Denise: I think part of it is just a 24-year-old guy (Malcolm) snuggling up to something that is really nice to snuggle up to, but now it's like there's these huge targets on their back.

Episode 2503

Russell: If Denise decides to hitch her wagon to the young ones, then I'm dead.

Episode 2505

Malcolm: I got an immunity idol this morning and a new tribe in the afternoon and I feel like I got my swag back.

Episode 2508


Eighth Tribal Council

Lisa: Well, I said that you (Jeff) were Plan B, but I think this was actually Plan D or E.

Episode 2511


Eleventh Tribal Council

Abi: I hope you (Denise) go home tonight. Look who's judging you now!

Episode 2512


Twelfth Tribal Council

Abi: You're patronizing, judgemental, you're just not a good person. I really don't like you (Denise).
Denise: Abi, if this vote doesn't go as planned, there is seriously something wrong in the universe.

Episode 2513


Thirteenth Tribal Council

Malcolm: It sounds like it's either you (Denise) or me tonight.

Jeff Varner: Why haven’t you told anyone you’re transgender?

Survivor: Winners at War


Episode 4014


During the first tribal council

Sarah: If a woman lies or cheats or steals, then she's fake and phony and a bitch. If a guy does it, it's good gameplay. What it is, it's a gender bias - it holds me back, it holds other women back from playing the game the way we should be allowed to play the game. I, for two years, have been so hard on myself, from Game Changers, that I felt like I was such a bad person, and I'm not.
