[Looking Andrea's outfit over on her first day on the job, in a deleted scene] Looks like Oklahoma and New Jersey had a baby out of wedlock.


[On the phone taking a message]Okay... Can you please spell 'Gabbana'? [Person on the other end hangs up] I guess not...

[To Andrea, during a fashion shoot in which models are wearing animal masks] Don't make me feed you to one of the models.

[To Andrea] ...this place, where so many people would die to work, you only deign to work.

[To Andrea] A million girls would kill for this job.

[To Andrea] This magazine published the greatest artists of the last century: Halston ... De la Renta ... Lagerfeld.

[To Andrea] This... stuff? Oh... ok. I see, you think this has nothing to do with you. You go to your closet and you select out, oh 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. 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 St. Laurent, wasn't it, who showed cerulean military jackets? And then cerulean quickly showed up in the collections of eight different designers. Then it 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 so it's sort of comical to me 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.

[To Andrea] Yes, because that's really what this whole multibillion-dollar industry is all about, isn't it? Inner beauty.

[To Andrea] You sold your soul the day you put on that first pair of Jimmy Choo's!

[To Andrea] You're in desperate need of Chanel.

[To Andy] You bet your size 6 ass!

[To herself, while working despite a serious cold] I love my job, I love my job.

[To Miranda, upon seeing Andrea for the first time] Are we doing a before and after piece I don't know about?

Alright everyone. Gird your loins!

Also, tell Richard I saw all the pictures that he sent for that feature on the female paratroopers and they're all so deeply unattractive. Is it impossible to find a lovely, slender, female paratrooper? Am I reaching for the stars here? Not really.
