Movie Quote Quiz

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

Miranda Priestly: What about Testino? Where are we on that?
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: Same Andy, better clothes.
Nate: I like the old clothes.

Andy Sachs: So none of the girls here eat anything?
Nigel: Not since two became new four and zero became the new two.
Andy Sachs: Well, I'm a six.
Nigel: Which is the new fourteen.

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.

Miranda Priestly: And this layout for the Winter Wonderland spread. Not wonderful yet.

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.

Emily: This is her, the new me.
Serena: I thought you were kidding.

Nigel: There's a scale. One nod is good, two nods is very good. There's only be one actual smile on record and that was Tom Ford in 2001. If she doesn't like it she shakes her head. Then of course there's the pursing of the lips.
Andy Sachs: Which means?
Nigel: Catastrophe.

Emily: Andrea, Runway is a fashion magazine, so an interest in fashion is crucial.
Andy Sachs: What makes you think I'm not interested in fashion?

Emily: You don't deserve them, I mean you eat carbs, for Chrissake.

Miranda Priestly: By all means move at a glacial pace. You know how that thrills me.

Emily: A million girls would kill for this job.

Christian Thompson: You're a vision.

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

Nigel: Oh, never mind. I'm sure you have plenty more poly-blend where that came from.

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.

Question: Can anyone please explain to me the deal about Nigel not getting a job in Paris? He thought he got promoted then Miranda picked someone else or something and he says something like 'when the time is right, she'll pay me back'. I've seen this film loads of times but I've never fully understood what happened. Thanks.

Chosen answer: Miranda was going to be replaced by Jaqueline and forced to retire. Miranda worked a deal to give Nigel's new job to Jaqueline instead. Since Jaqueline now has a job she wants, there is no one eager or qualified to replace Miranda. Miranda keeps her job. Nigel doesn't get a new job and must remain with Miranda. Miranda gets what she wants, Jaqueline gets what she wants, Nigel gets screwed, but maintains the (most likely futile) hope that Miranda will pay him back by some other means in due course.

Answer: Nigel was going to be James Holt's partner But Miranda made it so Jacqueline got or instead so Miranda could remain Editor in Chief at Runway.
