Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.

Trying to fit in. Born to stand out

Daphne Reynolds

  • If you take your nose out of the air for one second you'll see that you're designer, I'm vintage. You've got a mansion, I've got a five floor walkup. You're snotty little miss cranky pants and I go with the flow, so why would you ever think for one second that I'd ever have the same taste in guys? So here's a little pointer for you. Get over yourself and stop trying to be my daddy's little girl because I'm not going anywhere.
  • My evil stepsister, you've seen Cinderella, right? Let me clue you in, I win.
  • It's bigger than our entire apartment and the Chinese restaurant downstairs and the dry cleaner down the street; it makes the White House look like a McDonalds!
  • Every year I would wish if that I was good enough you would come and find me.
  • Dude, its chocolate. Need I say more?

Ian Wallace

  • Why do you try so hard to fit in when you are born to stand out?
  • You know, just another one of my glamorous jobs.
  • (Joking) Eloping together. Yeah. I realize it's a bit sudden but after last night, there was really no turning back.

Henry Dashwood

  • I think I owe you a rather large apology.
  • Remember when I told you how groovy I used to be?
  • You like Co-co Pops?
  • I'm not explaining this very well, am I?
  • For me, it's just a stop on the campaign trail, and for Glynnis it's a chance to launch Clarissa on society.
  • No, in Clarissa's case it's more like an intercontinental ballistic missile.

Clarissa

  • That girl is totally barbaric!
  • Maybe someone should've put a cork in it seventeen years ago.
  • Oh, very you, lovely. So Henry asked us to give you a few pointers, didn't he? Well, pointer number 1: go home. Mother and I belong here and it's quite clear you just don't fit in. And pointer number 2: while you're packing, keep your grimy little Yankee paws off Armistead Stuart, he's mine.
  • [after Daphne walks out in fashion show] Holy poo on toast.
  • Seems you had a better time in Morocco than you let on

Clarrisa: Oh, very you, lovely. So Henry asked us to give you a few pointers, didn't he? Well, pointer number 1: go home. Mother and I belong here and it's quite clear you just don't fit in. And pointer number 2: while you're packing, keep your grimy little Yankee paws off Armistead Stuart, he's mine.
Daphne: If you take your nose out of the air for one second you'll see you're designer, I'm vintage. You've got a mansion, I've got a five floor walkup.

Glynnis: I'll put a cork in it, Clarissa.
Clarissa: Maybe someone should have put a cork in it seventeen years ago.

Glynnis: Now Daphne, we don't want to make a scene now, do we?
Libby: Take your hand off my daughter or you won't get a scene, you'll get a Broadway Musical!

Henry: I think I owe you a rather large apology.
Libby: Do you think I've waited 17 years for an apology?

Henry: You like co-co pops?
Daphne: Dude, its chocolate. Need I say more?

Glynnis: Darling, darling, all I'm saying is before we let this hypothetical daughter blow your political career out of the water, we might at least consider doing some checking up on her
Henry: Now, checking up for what?
Glynnis: I don't know... criminal record, blood type, triple sixes on her scalp
Henry: Glynnis, she has a birth certificate, she has my photograph and she has my eyes.

Henry: I'm not explaining this very well, am I?
Daphne: No, not really. But I'm having fun watching you try.

Daphne: Hey! What are you doing here?
Ian: You know, just another one of my glamorous jobs.
Daphne: Oh!

Clarissa: [Sees Daphne fall over the wall] Did you see that?
Glynnis: What?
Clarissa: An impossibly large bird falling off that wall.
Glynnis: Are you hallucinating?
[Waves her hand in front of her face]

Henry: For me, it's just a stop on the campaign trail, and for Glynnis it's a chance to launch Clarissa on society.
Daphne: Launch her? You make her sound like a ship.
Henry: No, in Clarissa's case it's more like an intercontinental ballistic missile

Henry: So are you and Daphne...
Ian: Eloping together. Yeah. I realize it's a bit sudden but after last night, there was really no turning back.
Henry: You are joking aren't you?
Ian: Yes, of course.
