Claire Danes was barely in her teens when she made a significant impact on primetime television with the startling authenticity, intelligence and complexity she brought to her starring role on the landmark drama "My So-Called Life" (ABC, 1994-95). Following the beloved show's early demise, Danes headed straight for dramatic feature films, maintaining her "thinking teen" persona in Baz Luhrman's "Romeo + Juliet" (1996) and the Academy Award-nominated "The Hours" (2002). While Danes branched out with comedies including "The Family Stone" (2005) and the fantasy "Stardust" (2007), it was character-driven dramas like "Shopgirl" (2005) that best showcased the actress' skillful embodiment of a vulnerable female on the verge of an empowered breakthrough. She once again found wide critical acclaim on television for her Emmy-winning performance in the title role of the biopic "Temple Grandin" (HBO, 2010), followed by a return to episodic series work as one of the stars of the espionage thriller "Homeland" (Showtime, 2011- ). Having successfully made the transition from small screen to feature films and back again, Danes remained one of the more impressive performers in either medium.

T-101 says: I am unable to comply.

Mirabelle Buttersfield says: Why can't you love me?

Yvaine says: You've got a Babylon candle.

Tristan says: Yeah, I have a bubbling candle.

Yvaine says: A *Babylon* candle.

Tristan says: That's what I said.

Yvaine says: You said "bubbling".

Yvaine says: You said 'bubbling'.

Tristan says: Did you really mean what you said in the caravan?

Yvaine says: What I...? But... You were a mouse! You were a mouse... you wanted cheese! You didn't... I asked you to give me a sign!

Tristan says: And risk you being too embarrassed to keep saying such lovely things?

Temple Grandin says: But my favorite of Einstein's words on religion is "Science without religion is lame. Religion without science is blind." I like this because both science and religion are needed to answer life's great questions

Temple Grandin says: But my favorite of Einstein's words on religion is 'Science without religion is lame. Religion without science is blind.' I like this because both science and religion are needed to answer life's great questions.

Yvaine says: You know when I said I knew little about love? Well that wasn't true. I know a lot about love. I've seen it. I've seen centuries and centuries of it. And it was the only thing that made watching your world bearable. All those wars. Pain and lies. Hate. Made me want to turn away and never look down again. But to see the way that mankind loves. I mean, you can search the furthest reaches of the universe and never find anything more beautiful. So, yes, I know that love is unconditional. But I also know that it can also be unpredictable, unexpected, uncontrollable, unbearable and, well, strangely easy to mistaken for loathing. And, what I'm trying to say, Tristan, is I think I love you! My heart, it feels like my chest can barely contain it. Like it doesn't belong to me anymore. It belongs to you. And if you wanted it, I's wish for nothing in exchange. No gifts, no goods, no demonstrations of devotion. Nothing but knowing that you love me, too. Just your heart in exchange for mine.

Yvaine says: Would I be correct in thinking that you can neither see nor hear me? Then I'd like to tell you that you smell of pee. You look like the wrong end of a dog. And I swear if I don't get my Tristan back as he was, I'll be your personal poltergeist!

Ditchwater Sal says: That's my flower! Eighteen years I've been looking for that! Give it to me now!

Yvaine says: How dare you! That was a gift from his mother!

Tristan says: What the hell did you do?

Yvaine says: What did I do? What did you do?! "Think of home!" That was a great plan! You thought of your home and I thought of mine and now we're halfway between the two!

Yvaine says: What did I do? What did you do?! 'Think of home!' That was a great plan! You thought of your home and I thought of mine and now we're halfway between the two!

Yvaine says: What do stars do? They shine.

Temple Grandin says: Different but not less
