Andrea Sachs

Miranda Priestly

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.

Miranda: Emily.... Emily?
Nigel: [To Andy] She means you.
Miranda: But that's not what I asked you, I couldn't have been clearer- There you are Emily, how many times do I have to scream your name?
Andrea: Actually, it's Andy. [pause] My name is Andy... Andrea, but everyone calls me Andy.
Miranda: [Gives out a small laugh] I need ten or fifteen skirts from Calvin Klein.
Andrea: What kind of skirts do you-
Miranda: Please bore someone else with your questions. And make sure we have Pier 59 at 8am tomorrow, and remind Jocelyn I need to see a few of those satchels that Mark is doing in the pony, and then tell Simone I'll take Jackie if Maggie isn't available. Did Demarchelier confirm?
Andrea: D-D-Demarchelier?
Miranda: Demarchelier. Get him on the phone.
Andrea: O-Ok.
Miranda: And Emily...?
Andrea: Yes?
Miranda: [Looks down at Andy's shoes] That's all.

Andrea: Emily, hi. No don't hang up. I've got a favour to ask you.
Emily: (Sarcastically) You have a favour to ask of me?
Andrea: Yeah, the thing is I've got all these clothes from Paris and I don't have anywhere to put them so I was wondering if you could take them off my hands.
Emily: Well, it's a huge imposition. Of course I'll have to have them taken in, they'll drown me. But, very well. I suppose I could help you.
Andrea: Thanks Emily. I appreciate it. (Hangs up).
Emily: (Smiling contemplatively and turning to the new girl sitting at Andrea's desk) You have some very large shoes to fill. I hope you realise that.

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.

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.

[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.

Andrea: (after Miranda has suddenly opened and worried about the effect public disclosure of her upcoming divorce will have on her daughters) Is there anything else I can do to help?
Miranda: Yes. Your job.

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

Jocelyn: I was thinking we could do a piece about the new floral prints for spring.
Miranda: Florals... for spring. Groundbreaking.

Miranda: And before today you had never heard of me?
Andrea: No.
Miranda: You have no style or sense of fashion.
Andy: I think that depends on-
Miranda: No, no, that wasn't a question.

If I see freesias anywhere, I will be very disappointed. [There is an alternate version of this line on the deleted scenes]

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

[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!

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 is unable to book Miranda a flight home due to a hurricane]
Andrea: Oh my God, she's going to murder me!
Richard Sachs: What does she want you to do, call the National Guard and have her airlifted out of there?
Andrea: Of course not!...Could I do that?
