Alicia Florrick (The Good Wife)
This woman is fiercely protective of her children, so much so that she’ll put herself in the line of political fire to protect them at all costs. And God forbid someone dares try to use them for any scheme, she’ll take anyone down in a court of law. Also, you don’t have to worry if you are looking at porn or searching for other sex facts on the internet, she’s so tech inept that if you lie and say you didn’t do it, she’ll absolutely believe you.

She’s like this ultimate Big Sister that could teach Diane about makeup and tampons and bulimia and shit like that, but she’s too busy (So Very Busy!) with her boyfriends and after-school job and driver’s license-having to even consider the fact that you, like, exist.

Eli: “Kristin Chenoweth! Jesus God!”
Q: “New viewers need to be caught up, Eli. These are the questions asked by everybody who doesn’t watch the show.”

We didn’t care about Jason Biggs inventing, or co-inventing some form of virtual currency. What we did care about was seeing Kalinda work her magical charm on computer nerds in order to find out who was responsible for the product. It was Kalinda doing what Kalinda does best.
