What are your favorite UB quotes? Here's two of mine:

Gina to Betty, about her TV: "Bitch, you broke my plasma!"

Hilda to Justin, after he wonders about getting fat: "You're a boy. It doesn't matter if you're fat or not."

Put your picks for the best UB quotes here.

I loved the "Are You The Before?" line that the MODE receptionist gives Betty when she first meets her, although I hate the fact that it's almost a word-for-word copy of the similar line that was uttered in The Devil Wears Prada by the gay dude that was Meryl Streep's assistant...

Yes, I am going to have to start referring to people as "fabulously douchey."

I think it was how the blonde secretary/receptionist woman described Gina Gershon's Donatella character to Betty. It was when Betty was sitting at the computer working on her layout and the secretary was leaning over her giving her the dish on everyone in the office (like how Daniel sleep with the photographer's girlfriend or whatever).

I loved Gina Gershon's last few lines, when she's giving her last two cents on the new proposed photo spread.

"Just make sure it's not too sappy. Have one with them pulling their hair or biting each other or something."

Betty (to herself): "You are an attractive, intelligent, confident businesswoman."
Then the next minute, she crashes into a door

-

Daniel: "Thank you, but it is Daniel, not Danny."
Wilhelmina: "What? I'm hellaciously(thanks to loseresque) upset, Marc."
Marc: "Oh my god, I'm so sorry."
Wilhelmina: "Shh. Purge this from memory, please."

"It's like a bizarro version of 'Sex In The City'." Ha! Loved it.

This seemed like a throwaway line to me... and even moreso when the credits revealed that Pat Field is the costumer for UB. (Reminds me of the St. Elsewhere episode that had Howie Mandel yelling, "Move the guerny, Hal!"

Wilhelmina: "What? I'm hilagously(?) upset, Marc."


I think it was hellaciously, but the delivery of this line from VW was brilliant.

Thanks

Daniel: "Hi Betty, there's a problem with my lunch. I love coleslaw, but I hate cabbage."
Betty: "But, coleslaw is..."
Daniel: "No, no, no, no. I know. I just love the tart tanging dressing. Can you do something about it, before it gets to room temperature?"

Betty's sister, Hilda was awesome tonight, IMO. Justin too.

Justin: What is going on?
Hilda: She lost the book.
Justin: *gasp!* (puts his hand, covering his mouth).

Hilda: Put your headphone on! (After putting on the headphone) THAT BITCH!

Hilda: OK, I am going to ask you, (does the finger) one time. Where is the book?

Hilda to Gina: "Bitch! Outta my house!"

Gina to Hilda, after Hilda pulls out Gina's weave: "You're gonna pay for that, too!"
Hilda: "That'll be $4000-and 50 cents."

"We're still trying to land you '2 Million Dollar Baby'!"

What a hilarious idea for a movie sequel!

Oh, and "Wilhemina says pay attention to the fanny pack article. She's not sure we're hitting the emotional arc yet."

Daniel speaks to Betty over the intercom and asks her to send out an email saying they got the photographer.

Betty: (heard throughout the office) SHUT! UP! Ahem, right away Sir.

Hee. The looks on Daniel and DaddyMeade's faces were great.

I wish I could remember the exact quote but when Marc is trying to take the contract away from Betty.
Betty: "I can't hit your boss, but I can hit you and I'm from Queens so you know I'll do it."

It made me laugh out loud.

I loved Justin's review of the mag. "A bit bulky, but the styles, accessories and puff pieces were good." (I think I need to watch again so I can get that quote right.)
