  • Miranda Priestly: Rupert Murdoch should cut me a check for all the paper I sell for him.

  • Emily: Oh my God, Andy, you look to chic.

    Emily: Face it Andy, you sold your soul the day you put on that first pair of Jimmy Choo's. I saw it. And you know what really kills me about this whole thing, is the clothes that you're gonna get, I mean, you don't them you carbs for Christ sake! God! it's so unfair.

  • Miranda Priestly: "This...Stuff"? Oh. Okay. I see. You think this has nothing to do with you. You go to your closet and you select , I don't know that lumpy blue sweater, for instance because you are trying to tell the world that you take yourself too seriously to care about what you put on your back. But what you don't know is that that sweater is not just blue, its not turquoise. It's not lapis. Its actually cerulean. And you're also blithely unaware of the fact that in 2002, Oscar de la Renta did a collection of cerulean gowns. And then i think it was Yves Saint Laurent - wasn't it who showed cerulean military jackets?And then cerulean quickly showed up in the collections of eight different designers. And then it, uh, filtered down through the department stores and then trickled on down into some tragic Casual Corner where you, no doubt, fished it out of some clearance bin. However, that blue represents millions of dollars and countless jobs and its sort of comical how you think that you've made a choice that exempts you from the fashion industry when, in fact you're wearing a sweater that was selected for you by the people in this room from a pile of stuff.
