MIRANDA PRIESTLY
Find me that piece of paper I had in my hand yesterday morning.

NATE
[as Andy takes a call from Miranda] You know, in case you were wondering - the person whose calls you always take? That's the relationship you're in. I hope you two are very happy together.

ANDY SACHS
[as she and Christian through Place Des Vosges, after both have been intoxicated] I never understood why everyone was so crazy about Paris, but now... [she laughs and swirls around a pole] It's. So. Beautiful. [Christian dances with her for a brief time and kisses her] I can't do this. [he kisses her again] Nate and I only split up a few days ago [he kisses her again]. Oh, I've had too much wine and my judgement is impaired [he kisses her again]. I barely know you and I'm in a strange city [he kisses her again]. I'm out of excuses.
CHRISTIAN THOMPSON
[smiles] Thank God. [he kisses her once more]

MIRANDA PRIESTLY
Do you know why I hired you? I always hire the same girl- stylish, slender, of course... worships the magazine. But so often, they turn out to be- I don't know- disappointing and, um... stupid. So you, with that impressive résumé and the big speech about your so-called work ethic- I, um- I thought you would be different. I said to myself, go ahead. Take a chance. Hire the smart, fat girl. I had hope. My God. I live on it. Anyway, you ended up disappointing me more than, um- more than any of the other silly girls.

NIGEL
[Nigel holds up a pair of fashionable high heels] I guessed an 8 and a half.
ANDY SACHS
I don't need those. Miranda hired me. She knows what I look like.
NIGEL
Do you?

NIGEL
Come on. Miranda's pushed the run through up a half hour. And she's always 15 minutes early.
ANDY SACHS
Which means?
NIGEL
You're already late.

CHRISTIAN THOMPSON
Andy, baby, it's over, it's done.
ANDY SACHS
I'm not your baby.

EMILY CHARLTON
Andrea, my God! You look so chic.
ANDY SACHS
Oh, thanks. You look so thin.
EMILY CHARLTON
Really? It's for Paris, I'm on this new diet. Well, I don't eat anything and when I feel like I'm about to faint I eat a cube of cheese. I'm just one stomach flu away from my goal weight.

MIRANDA PRIESTLY
By all means move at a glacial pace. You know how that thrills me.

[Miranda and some assistants are deciding between two similar belts for an outfit. Andy sniggers because she thinks they look exactly the same] 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.
