May sweeps have officially ended, taking with them some of our favorite programs. Don't be sad; this week saw a lot of great finales! In fact, we're highlighting some in this week's TV quote quiz. Can you match each quote to the show and character it came from?

If there's one guilty pleasure of mine, it's not being able to resist the rose giving, hot tub kissing, and awkward dating that is The Bachelorette. Season after season, I swear off the torture, only to find myself once again plopped on the couch with a girlfriend or two and a glass of wine cringing at too-eager fellas and tipsy Bachelorettes. And Desiree Hartsock's season, which kicks off May 27, will be no exception.
This wedding season, if you're planning a bachelorette party, why not incorporate the hilarity, drama, and, of course, love of The Bachelorette into the festivities? I've come up with some ideas for throwing a The Bachelorette-themed bachelorette party — what do you think? Will you accept this rose?
Arrested Development returns this Sunday when the fourth season of the former Fox show will debut on Netflix. Considering that it's been nearly seven years since the series was on the air, some fans may have forgotten about the show's key episodes and funny moments. Luckily, we've put together a guide of the top five episodes you should revisit before you start streaming the new season. All of the show's episodes are currently on Netflix, so there are no excuses for missing out on these funny moments!
"Afternoon Delight" (season two, episode six)
Why it's a standout: This is an all-around great episode, but it is perhaps most notable because it gives birth to Gob's "Come on!" recurring joke. George Sr. leaves his collection of designer suits to Gob, who is acting as the president for the Bluth Company, and dressing up in luxury fabrics goes straight to Gob's head. He starts to mock his employees, telling one, "Oh, yeah. The guy in the $4,000 suit is holding the elevator for a guy who doesn't make that in three months. Come on!" And thus, a meme is born.
Other notable moments: Gob wears a banana suit for the company's second Christmas party, Michael and Maeby learn that they should read the lyrics to Starland Vocal Band's "Afternoon Delight" before singing it at a company karaoke event, and Lucille inadvertently eats a pot brownie and runs over the banana stand.
For many of us, Memorial Day weekend means a day off work for barbecues and some beach time. For others (like myself), it means time to hang on the couch. This Memorial Day weekend provides some especially great options, including the premiere of HBO's long-awaited Before the Candelabra. There's also a Veronica Mars marathon, IFC's Arrested Development marathon on Saturday ahead of the new season's release, and don't forget about Mad Men on Sunday!
Take a look at all the networks' marathons, and plan your schedule after the jump.
Thanks to bear battles, lost body parts, and some strange wedding arrangements, there's been plenty of shocking, unexpected drama on this season of Game of Thrones. While most of the action at King's Landing involves secrecy and threats, elsewhere we've seen violent punishments, creepy torture techniques, and some seriously impressive slave-army takeovers — and we're not even finished with the season yet. Take a look at the craziest moments of season three — so far!

J.J. Abrams stopped by Conan this week to promote his new movie Star Trek Into Darkness. He also wanted to clear the air about a scene from the film that's creating controversy for briefly showing Alice Eve in her underwear. To settle the score, he brought a delete scene from the film that shows villain Benedict Cumberbatch shirtless in the shower. It's a quick look, but still pretty entertaining. Check it out:
