Emily: You don’t deserve them, I mean you eat carbs, for Chrissake!
Nigel: Okay. Now, Chanel. You’re in desperate need of Chanel.
Jocelyn: [at a board meeting over the April issue] Well… they’re showing a lot of florals right now, so I was thinking…
Miranda Priestly: Florals? For spring? Ground breaking.
Emily: I’m sorry, do you have some prior commitment? Some hideous skirt convention you have to go to?
Nigel: Oh, never mind. I’m sure you have plenty more poly-blend where that came from.
Miranda Priestly: I need 10 or 15 skirts from Calvin Klein.
Andy Sachs: What kind of skirts?
Miranda Priestly: …please bore someone else with your questions.
Miranda Priestly: …You have no sense of fashion…
Andy Sachs: I think that depends on…
Miranda Priestly: No, no, that wasn’t a question.
Miranda Priestly: Find me that piece of paper I had in my hand yesterday morning.
Nigel: Let me know when your whole life goes up in smoke. Means it’s time for a promotion.
Nigel: There’s a scale. One nod is good, two nods is very good. There’s only be one actual smile on record and that was Tom Ford in 2001. If she doesn’t like it she shakes her head. Then of course there’s the pursing of the lips.
Andy Sachs: Which means?
Emily: I have Patrick!
The best one is the “cerulean blue” speech. It was one of the first entries I published on the blog (you can find it here). I’ve memorized the speech and I’m looking forward to spontaneously saying it to someone:
Miranda Priestly: Something funny?
Andy Sachs: No. No, no. Nothing’s… You know, it’s just that both those belts look exactly the same to me. You know, I’m still learning about all this stuff and, uh…
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’re 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, it’s not turquoise. It’s not lapis. It’s 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? I think we need a jacket here. 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 it’s 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 the sweater that was selected for you by the people in this room from a pile of stuff.
