Character’s Quotes
This is what you wanted, isn’t it? To humiliate me and make me quit? God forbid you had to work with the ugly girl your dad forced you to hire.
You are an attractive, intelligent, confident businesswoman.
There is nobody here who cares about filling the inside, they only care about fixing the outside! You know what, this concealer here, this doesn’t change the fact that she doesn’t have a house! And this, this eyeliner isn’t going to bring back the people you love! These women have lost everything, and there is not enough styling gel in here to change that.
You can take my bunny, but you can’t take my spirit!
