More Quotable Quotes – 2008 TV Season Premiere
“Women only have five seconds to be young and beautiful and then it’s gone. And then before you know it, we’re old and fat, married and wondering where our beauty went.”
~ Former model Gabby to husband Carlos Solis, on facing their daughter’s weight problem.
“Well, maybe I don’t deserve to be happy.”
~ Susan to new lover, Jackson, on why she didn’t want to be in a relationship.
(OMG, I sometimes say that line to myself. But hearing it from Susan, it sounds pathetic. Of course, each one of us deserves to be happy.)
“Nobody can slide the knife between the ribs quite like the people who love us.”
~ Robert McCallister to Sarah Walker, on apologizing to her sister Kitty.
Sir Thomas More: If the lion knows his own strength, no man could control him.
(He was referring to King Henry VIII.)
Anne Boleyn: It’s so hard when we’re to be married but she is still here. You can’t have three people in a marriage. Why can’t you see that?
King Henry VIII: And why can’t you understand that I have more things to think about than shirts.
(This is when Anne finds out that Queen Catherine is still making Henry’s shirts. Henry promised Anne that he and the queen aren’t intimate anymore since he wanted to annul his marriage to Catherine so he could marry Anne. Doesn’t this remind you of another famous Royal triangle? )
Queen Catherine of Aragon: Henry, not for our daugther, nor for anyone, would I dream of leaving you. You know my rightful place is by your side.
(Now, doesn’t that sound more pathetic than Susan?)
King Henry VIII: A happy marriage is devoutly something to be wished for.
(Then he turns to Charles Brandon to talk to Queen Catherine about leaving the palace. When Charles came back … )
Charles Brandon: She said that she’ll obey Your Majesty in everything save for her obedience to two higher powers.
King Henry VIII: Which two higher powers – the Pope and the Emperor?
Charles Brandon: No, God and her conscience.
(Now, that’s what I’m talking about Catherine. )
“Somebody always loving somebody they shouldn’t be loving.”
~ Private Detective Emerson Cod, on workplace romance.
“Oh, whoa, hold that pregnant pause. I’m not with child, unless it’s immaculate conception, or I wore a strange man’s underwear.”
~ Olive Snook to Mother Superior when she thought that Olive was pregnant that’s why she’s hiding in the nunnery.
“Sometimes bad things just happen.”
~ Betty Bee to Chuck, aka Kitty Pimms, on how all her bees supposedly died.
“And so the piemaker had come to understand. Home did not mean four walls and a door you never walk out of. Home was a feeling of where you belong.
~Narrator at the end of the episode, on Ned (the piemaker) finally letting go of Chuck and accepting her desire to move out.
“Daniel, anything you truly want, has to be worth fighting for.”
~ Betty to boss Daniel Meade, on convincing him to go back to work at Mode Magazine.
(Okay, this is from the second episode. But that’s one reason I like Betty. She’s loyal to Daniel and she’s just so beautiful inside. Okay, that’s two reasons. )
