Richard Armitage quotes and pictures project

NOTE: Thanks to everyone for your contributions! The deadline has now passed and I am starting work immediately.

P.S. Our Speed Reading – Quotes Project is now complete!

Hi again. It’s time for another collaborative project. Thanks for all your great submissions of flags and pictures last time. It’s lovely to see the worldwide connections.

Let’s do another activity!

For this project, I ask your help again.  If you are interested, please submit one screencap of Richard Armitage or one of his characters and a quote.  The picture and quote need not be from the same scene.

Just paste your image link and quote  in the comments box below. Your picture can be from your favorite fansite such as RichardArmitageNet.Com or your own stash on imageshack or photobucket, etc.

If you need help finding a quote, there is a collection of sound files on RichardArmitagenet.Com:

Below is an example:


2. “I don’t like to wait.” The quote is from the Spooks episode where Lucas poses as a rich Russian.

Just for fun, can you tell me which episodes of Spooks my screencap is from? I ask because I really don’t know, LOL! 😀

The deadline is Monday, April 23 at 12 noon New York City time.  Have fun and I’ll post the resulting project by Friday, April 27.

Thanks again for your help and fun!  😀

NOTE: Thanks to everyone for your contributions! The deadline has now passed and I am starting work immediately.

    Here is my proposition :

    With the text : Oh, I’m a very good boy…

    Ok, this phrase is from “Strike back”, but I think it matches good with this pic, lol.

    • bccmee says:

      @april73: Oooh, that’s a lovely Guy picture. I like how you took a quote from another show entirely. Clever you! Thanks so much for your contribution. 😀

  2. Emma says:

    Hi b. I’m pretty certain your quote is from Spooks Series 8, ep 6. When the team is trying to save Britain from going financially bankrupt! Good choice! 🙂
    I’ll send you my quote this weekend!

    • bccmee says:

      @Emma: Nice choice of Lucas North in spy-glasses, LOL! I look forward to your quote soon. 😀 I appreciate you tracking down the episode from my own quote, thanks!

  3. Judit says:

    Hi Bcc, thank you for the new project! It’s going to be fun! 🙂
    Love it when he smiles like this, looking down, the hint of shyness is so endearing:
    Quote: “Come and find out” from the Lorraine Kelly show answering the “are the tattoos real” question.. He said it so sexily..For me one of the things that makes RA so irresistible is this combination of shyness and sexiness…

  4. Luciana says:

    Your new projects are always exciting… wow!!!!
    I just don’t get tired of looking at RA pictures… the problem is usually to choose one… lol
    Quote: “You’re coming home with me.” (Guy of Gisborne)

    • bccmee says:

      @Luciana: It’s very difficult to choose, LOL! That’s why I always require help. 😉 Thanks so much for your Richard Armitage image and lovely Guy quote! 😀

  5. Hi,Bcc, I’m excited again about your new project.You are spoiling us, did you know?One week has been too long to wait.Thanks a million, I adore to make part in these ones.
    My contribuitions:
    Quote: Do not look at me like that I melt!

    • bccmee says:

      @Tereza Tassuett: Guy is quite a chaRActer! Such a gorgeous screencap, thanks! Nice job making up your own quote. It suits perfectly! 😀

  6. Btw, the quote I made up it. if it doesn´t fit, I´ll send another later. See you! Now,I need to go to my job.Have a great weekend!

  7. Lady Prisca says:

    Thank you for this new project Bccmee. It’s exciting!

    The quote is from Richard himself (not a character) :
    “Bad guys have all the fun”

    I think your pic of Lucas is in the season 1 episode 4 , because of this screencap from :

    • bccmee says:

      @Lady Prisca: Perfect quote to go with your Guy picture, thanks!

      Oh good job finding the episode my screencap came from! I made it while working on a fanvideo and he looked so perfectly beautiful I couldn’t resist. ♥

  8. Ania says:

    I can’t wait to see the end result of your new project. 🙂 Here’s my proposal:
    Quote: “You do not speak to me”- sir Guy to Marian.
    Have a great weekend!

  9. Kathleen says:

    I am back with an old favorite, Philip Turner from Inspector Lynley. The picture is here:

    and the In Divine Proportion episode is now on YouTube. The first RA bit is at around 7:30 of part 2. This quote is from part 3 at around 1:25:

    “In the last year I’ve lost everything and I realize that I never really had anything to loose. Strange feeling, desperately spending your life clinging on to things you don’t really want. Probably I should be up a mountain somewhere chanting. But I’m not, I’m here. 36 fairly pointless years here on earth. I aspire to nothing in my future and I might not be half way through my life.”

    That’s a really long quote, any part (or no part) of it is good.

    Thanks for all your hard work. I look forward to seeing the next project.

    • bccmee says:

      @Kathleen: That really is a lovely screencap, thanks! I have all of Richard Armitage’s shows on DVD for fanvidding but I haven’t made time to watch this program yet. I must do so soon. Thanks so much for your helpful and thoughtful contributions! 🙂

  10. Brooke says:

    Harry Kennedy from the Vicar of Dibley:
    Quote: “I reckon you’re a teacher.”

    – think I got all that right. Please correct me if I am wrong.

  11. jeanniegisborne says:

    You know it’s gonna be Guy 🙂
    “The bad guys have all the fun!”
    I just noticed someone used this quote but I think the picture rather suits 🙂

  12. Pingback: Legenda 23: Stuff worth reading « Me + Richard Armitage

  13. Emma says:

    So many choices, b! I cheated and added two. The second might be a bit naughty! 😉

    But first, Guy and Meg (aww…) Robin Hood series 3, episode 9
    “You made me think about someone I used to know”

    And now, cheeky Lucas (one of the few times we saw him relaxed and funny). Spooks series 7, episode 4
    “What are you best at; the real thing or faking it?”

    Looking forward to the magic you come up with. Have a great weekend!

  14. tyme4t says:

    ooohhh I love quotes and to match to pics this is so right up my alley!


    Now the quote is from series 8 ep 2 “Bloody internet.” but the pic is from series 9 ep 2 – I just like ’em together PLUS I use the phrase bloody internet all the time especially when it’s giving me a hard time!

    I am submitting a second quote & pic – they too are also from different series (quote from series 8 ep 4 – pic from series 7 ep 1) but it is actually my favourite Lucas quote and to really get it…you kinda need Harry’s part..
    Harry Pearce: Lucas, you invited a man who repeatedly tortured you, into your private space. What do you think a psychologist will say about that?
    Lucas North: No idea, but I have a feeling it might be in Latin.

    Use one or the other, both or neither….this was fun!

  15. Hi Bccmee!
    I chose John Standring in Sparkhouse, because he is often overlooked. But I really go for the big teddy bears–married one. Ha!

    Here is the picture (just after John and Carol are married and he is moving in with her):

    John’s quote to her with this picture (related to the revelation that Lisa is her daughter) is a very tender:

    “Never think you can’t tell me things.”

    He melts my heart every time I hear him whisper that to her. Sighhh!

    Here is the vid with the line in it at 3:06:

    Cheers! Grati ;->

  16. Teuchter says:

    This is a great idea!! 🙂 Here are my choices – hope you don’t mind I have actually chosen three and all the quotes are Richard’s own about the roles he is playing.

    Quote – “I wanted to make sure that when [Lucas] was described as malnourished I wouldn’t stand there looking all healthy.”

    Quote – “I’m always jumping off things on set, on an adrenalin high. At the end of a take people suddenly run up to me waving cotton swabs because I’m bleeding and haven’t noticed”

    Quote – “There was a huge debate about this last year because everyone thought [Guy’s outfit] was plastic. But no, it’s definitely leather.”

    After many careful studies we were in total agreement!!! 😀

  17. Jo Milne says:

    Here is my pic choice

    Quote – “It’s quite funny – no, it’s hilarious to be considered as a sex symbol. In school I was a beanpole with a nose I hadn’t grown into”

  18. magwi says:

    Hi Bcc. Another great idea. Thanks for thinking these things up. So here’s the thing. It needs to be Porter for me but it was soooo hard to choose. In the end I can’t resist this little grin and crinkly eyes. Still from SB Ep 2 Zimbabwe.

    Quote (which I hope is not too long) is from SB Ep 1.

    “Listen, I’d settle for an R and you can call be Romeo.”

    Thanks again for the opportunity to take part. ♥

    Wonderful idea bccme!
    This is the picture, from Robin Hood, promotional photo:
    And here is the sound: “See you in the dark side”- Guy of Gisborne, but I don’t know exactily which season. It’s from the

    Thank you for your great work!

    • bccmee says:

      @mariana: Nice selections! I appreciate your contributions.

      Some people were having trouble commenting on my blog so I now allow anonymous comments, so thanks for letting me know who you are! 😀

  21. lucylou says:

    And my quote is one I would want to say “Please. Let me In.”

    • bccmee says:

      @lucylou: Mmm, I still adore Harry Kennedy and I would’ve definitely accepted his invitation to come in! ♥ Thanks for your submission!

  22. Fabi says:

    Ooh, I adore quotes! Another great idea, Bccmee.
    Here’s my quote:
    “I like the fact that there’s a community out there, getting together and enjoying themselves because something I’ve done.” RA said this in 2008, I hope he still thinks so. 😉
    For the picture, because no one chose him yet:

    • bccmee says:

      @Fabi: Excellent quote, thanks! You’re right, nobody had yet selected John Thornton even though that’s the character that started it all for many of us! 😀

  23. Ania says:

    If I may add other proposals, this time with Richard’s personal quotes, so here are:
    “You can spend a bit of yourself when you give yourself to a character. At the end of a job, you have to remind yourself who and what you are.”
    “I don’t think actors need to go on pedestals. I don’t buy it. I think it’s a weird thing. It’s like you become someone else, like stepping into another universe.”

    • bccmee says:

      @raddicted: Most excellent! That is a great crossover of two shows. Thanks so much for your time and effort. 😀

      • raddicted says:

        I realized how hard it can be to find a quote for a picture I like and this one was the one that worked. Have to watch the series again though, would help a lot but had no time. So only a few Mr. Armitage voices in my head, like “Touch and go.” *lol* Or then his audiobooks/cbeebies but that was even harder to work with (for me). So you can truly say that the difficulty of the task chose the outcome. Nevertheless I loved it, I love the idea and I’m looking forward to the end product.

  24. I’m a little lazy this week, BCC, so this is the very first I thought of:
    I hope you’ll like the match! LOL!

    Quoting GoG S3 Ep The Enemy of my Enemy: “So, where do you want me to sleep, then?”
    Image from Spooks S8 Ep5:

    • bccmee says:

      @Carla: Ooh, perfect mix and match! Wow I love that picture of sleeping Lucas! ♥

    • raddicted says:

      Great that one of these pictures is in too. My mind just refused a quote for them. Love this quote. Seems like Spooks and Robin Hood go along well with each other *lol*.

  25. Teuchter says:

    I hope you don’t mind me adding another picture and quote but after listening to some of the sound bites on, I felt these went together rather well!! 😉
    The quote is from Spooks 7 when Lucas asks Ros what she was best at – “The real thing or faking it?” and this scene came to mind from Series 8!! 😀

  26. Carolyn says:

    Quote: “I forget, can I phone a friend”
    I have that clip as my ringtone on my phone and startup on my computer. I love it when someone calls me!

  27. merisguy says:

    How could I go past the uber sexy Guy of Gisborne, S2 Epi 11.
    Guy and Allan have thwarted the Sheriffs guards, yeah I know not that tricky!! Marion is now safely back in the castle, Guy strides into her room….fast fwd to this piece…it has it all, the smirk, the husky voice.

    Quote – GUY: “Stay…and make this place bearable”
    OMG swoon & squee ♥♥♥♥

  28. Jennie says:

    Hi bccmee! Oh goody, another project! 😉

    Can I offer 2 pics/2 quotes, whichever fit in best with the rest of your selections….. All Lucas (surprise, surprise!)….

    and the quotes
    “I’m MI-5. I was MI-5 when we married. MI-5 all those years in prison and I’m MI-5 now.”

    “I spent 8 years in a Russian cell – 8 years, because I stayed loyal to my country. I still chew it over, when I’m lying awake at 3am wondering ‘was it worth it’? But yeah. It was. Because I look at you with all your brilliance and all your treachery and I see everything that I’ve ever fought against.”

    I realise the second is a bit long, but please cut if you think best!

    Looking forward to seeing this one!

    hugs xx

  29. Mezz says:

    For some reason this pairing has stuck in my mind, although technically maybe the quote doesn’t count because TH hasn’t been released!
    The quote is Thorin’s “I cannot guarantee his safety, nor will I be responsible for his fate,”
    paired with Porter driving off at the end of ep.6
    If that doesn’t work, my second choice would be John Thornton’s “I wish to marry you because I love you.”

  30. pamsingh says:

    Great idea Bccmee 🙂
    Here’s one that I hope has not been submitted yet.


    I hope you realize that any foolish passion on my part for you is over. I am looking to the future.

    This is from episode 3 of North and South. One of many scenes that just makes my heart ache.

  31. mersguy says:

    A late inclusion – Richard at the Powhiri ceremony. My heart bursts with pride every time I see this video. ♥

    Text –
    My name’s Richard, I’m from London England

  32. Hi Bccmee!
    Posting against the clock, no time to check if it has been post yet sorry!
    The pic is from The Vicar of Dibley “The Handsome Stranger”
    and the quote is the epic “you owe me the sum of one kiss with tongues” which makes me laugh so childishly every time I hear it. ‘Cos I’m from the time when a kiss with tongues was really an achievement you know?
    Love and thanks 😉

  33. I get so stressed I’m goin to miss one of these projects 😉
    Here it goes:
    Image: Sexy Lucas

    Bloody Internet.

    • bccmee says:

      @IWantToBeAPinUp: Phew, you made it! 😉 Yeah I have to have a deadline. *sigh* “Bloody deadlines,” LOL! Thanks very much for your Spooks promo picture and Lucas quote!
