Sure, the best series of the season will earn their due at Sunday night's Emmy Awards, but what about the best little moments?
We've rounded up a few of our favorites from a few of our favorite shows, in an attempt to pay homage to the great writing and delivery of TV's best lines. Check 'em out below – and tell us your favorite TV quotes in the comments.
For Jane Lynch, coping with the loss of Glee costar Cory Monteith is an ongoing struggle.
"I think that grieving comes in waves," she told PEOPLE at the Ciroq-sponsored Variety & Women in Film pre-Emmy event in Beverly Hills, Calif., on Friday. "Every day that I go to work, I walk past his trailer, and every time I look at a call sheet I see that his name is not on there. Every time I do a scene with the kids I realize that he's not there, so you're reminded in every moment. It's hard, and it feels like such a waste."
But while Lynch admits "it's tough" as she and her castmates continue to mourn the 31-year-old – who died from a lethal combination of heroin and alcohol this past July – her heart goes out to his girlfriend and costar, Lea Michele.
The cast of Glee said a final goodbye to Cory Monteith, who died in July, through his character, Finn Hudson, in a tribute episode they filmed recently that costar Jane Lynch says is "really beautiful."
"It was hard, and it was beautifully written," Lynch, 53, told PEOPLE at the FOX Fall Eco-Casino party Monday. "We grieved together, and it was so important for the crew to grieve as well, so we kind of all grieved as a big family."
"It was really hard to do, but it was a really beautiful episode."
Amber Riley is working her butt off as she prepares for her debut on the new season of Dancing with the Stars – and she's loving it.
"The rehearsal schedule is grueling but I've been really enjoying the workout aspect of it. It's four hours a day for six days a week," the Glee star, 27, told PEOPLE at the Tadashi Shoji fashion show at Lincoln Center in N.Y.C. on Thursday.
Riley will perform on the 17th season of DWTS, which premieres Sept. 16, with dance pro Derek Hough. "He is so cute and so sweet and he actually reminds me of Chord [Overstreet]" who plays "trouty mouth" Sam Evans on Glee.
Breakups are tough, but they can also be instructive. Just ask Darren Criss.
"When I was a junior in college, I'd broken up with a girl, but there were those residual months when I was still calling her all the time and wanting to spend time with her," the Glee star, 26, tells Cosmopolitan in their October issue, on newsstands Sept.10.
"Basically, she sat me down and said, 'Listen, you broke my heart. Accept responsibility for your actions, be a man, and leave me alone, because it's only going to make things worse.' I'll always remember that as a pivotal moment in my life. I hope she's reading this because I love her for it," Criss says.
If Naya Rivera has it her way, her career will resemble Jenny from the Block's.
"It's insane how gorgeous she is. Jennifer Lopez is a perfect example of what it means to be a mogul and have longevity, but still have people like you," the Glee star, 26, says in the October issue of Latina.
"She can do this until she chooses not to anymore. I hope I can say that one day,” she adds.
It looks like Demi Lovato is loving her new gig on Glee.
Naya Rivera, who plays cheerleader Santana, Tweeted a selfie on Thursday with the X Factor judge, who's her new love interest on the show.
The singer, 21, can be seen puckering up to Rivera, who suggested a new name for the couple: "Dantana."
Finn Hudson might be gone forever, but Lea Michele is making sure her on- and off-screen love is not forgotten.
Michelle, 26, Tweeted a photo of herself wearing a necklace with a "Finn" charm on Friday – the name of the late Cory Monteith's Glee character – simply captioned "Today" and followed by a little heart icon.
The Tweet comes the same day the Glee cast reportedly began shooting its tribute episode to Monteith, who died July 13 in a Vancouver hotel room after ingesting a lethal mix of heroin and alcohol.
Sunday night's Teen Choice Awards were full of unforgettable moments.
In her first public appearance since boyfriend Cory Monteith's July 13th death, Lea Michele thanked fans at Sunday night's Teen Choice Awards for their love and support during "these very difficult past few weeks."
Accepting the award for her portrayal of Rachel Berry on Glee, she tearfully dedicated her win to Monteith, who died from a a lethal combination of alcohol and heroin.
"I promise that with your love, we're going to get through this together," Michele, 26, told the audience gathered at Los Angeles's Gibson Amphitheatre. "He was very special to me and also to the world, and we were very lucky to witness his incredible talent, his handsome smile and his beautiful, beautiful heart.
