The Devil Wears Prada
Movie Quote Quiz

Nate: Why do women need so many bags?
Lilly: Shut up.
Nate: You have one. You put all your junk in it, and that's it. You're done.
Doug: Fashion is not about utility. An accessory is merely a piece of iconography used to express individual identity.
Lilly: Oh! And it's pretty.
Doug: That too.

Andy Sachs: I thought only the first assistant went to the benefit.
Miranda Priestly: Only when the first assistant hasn't decided to become an incubus of viral plague.

Emily: A million girls would kill for this job.

Nigel: Come on. Miranda's pushed the run through up a half hour. And she's always 15 minutes early.
Andy Sachs: Which means?

Emily: I'm sorry, do you have some prior commitment? Some hideous skirt convention you have to go to?

Miranda Priestly: Is there some reason that my coffee isn't here? Has she died or something?

Nigel: Zac Posen's doing some very sculptural suits. So I suggested that, uh, Testino shoot them at the Noguchi Garden.
Miranda Priestly: Perfect. Thank God somebody came to work today.

Andy Sachs: Learned a lot. In the end though, I kind of screwed it up.
Editor: I called over there for a reference, left word with some snooty girl. Next thing you know, I got a fax from Miranda Priestly herself... saying that of all the assistants she's ever had... you were, by far, her biggest disappointment. And, if I don't hire you, I am an idiot. You must have done something right.

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: Oh, don't be silly - everyone wants this. Everyone wants to be us.

Andy Sachs: Which means?
Nigel: Catastrophe.

Andy Sachs: So none of the girls here eat anything?

Nigel: Which is the new fourteen.
