Andrea: My personal life is falling apart.
Nigel: That's what happens when you start doing well at work. Let me know when your entire life goes up in smoke, then it's time for a promotion.


Do you have a prior commitment? Some hideous skirt convention you have to go to?

See, I'm on this new diet, well, I don't eat anything. And right before I feel I'm going to faint, I eat a cube of cheese. I'm one stomach flu away from my goal weight.

[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.

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

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

[Berating Andrea after a car accident has kept her from accompanying Miranda to Paris] It's not fair! I mean, you eat carbs for Christ's sake!

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.

We're done here.

Is there some reason my coffee isn't here? Has she died? [There are variants of this line in the deleted scenes]

Andy: I'm looking to for Emily Charlton.
Emily: Andrea Sachs? Great. Human Resources certainly has an odd sense of humor.

Andrea: So, none of the girls here eat anything?
Nigel: Not since two became the new four and zero became the new two.
Andrea: Well, I'm a six.
Nigel: Which is the new fourteen.

Andrea: [Seeing Nigel hold up a black evening gown] I love that! Will that fit me?
Nigel: A little Crisco and some fishing wire and we'll be in business.

Andrea: Wish me luck.
Emily: No. Shan't.

Andrea: What if I don't want this?
Miranda: Don't be silly. Everyone wants this. Everybody wants to be us.
