I don't understand why it's so difficult to confirm an appointment

Miranda Priestly:
I don't understand why it's so difficult to confirm an appointment.
Emily:
I know. I'm so sorry, Miranda. I actually did confirm last night.
Miranda Priestly:
Details of your incompetence do not interest me. Tell Simone I'm not going to approve that girl that she sent me for the Brazilian layout. I asked for clean, athletic, smiling. She sent me dirty, tired and paunchy. And R.S.V.P. yes to Michael Kors' party, I want the driver to drop me off at 9:30 and pick me up at 9:45 sharp. Call Natalie at Glorious Foods and tell her no for the 40th time. No! I don't want dacquoise. I want tortes filled with warm rhubarb compote. Then call my ex-husband and remind him that the parent-teacher conference is at Dalton tonight. Then call my husband, ask him to meet me for dinner at that place I went to with Massimo. Tell Richard I saw the pictures that he sent for that feature on the female paratroopers and they're all so deeply unattractive. Is it impossible to find a lovely, slender, female paratrooper? Am I reaching for the stars here? Not really. Also, I need to see all the things that Nigel has pulled for Gwyneth's second cover try. I wonder if she's lost any of that weight yet.
[seeing Andy]

Miranda Priestly:
Who is that?

Transcript:
Move it.
I don't understand why
it's so difficult to confirm appointments.
I'm so sorry. I actually did confirm...
Details of your incompetence
do not interest me.
Tell Simone I won't approve that girl
she sent me for the Brazilian layout.
I asked for clean, athletic, smiley.
She sent dirty, tired and paunchy.
R.S.V.P. "yes" to
the Michael Kors party.
I want the driver to drop me off at 9:30
and pick me up at 9:45 sharp.
Then call Natalie at Glorious Foods
and tell her "no" for the 40th time.
I don't want dacquoise. I want tortes
filled with rhubarb compote.
Call my ex and remind him the
parent-teacher conference is at Dalton.
Then call my husband,
ask him to meet me for dinner...
...at that place I went to
with Massimo.
Tell Richard I saw
the pictures he sent...
...for that feature
on female paratroopers...
...and they're all so unattractive.
Is it impossible to find a lovely...
...slender female paratrooper?
- No.
- Am I reaching for the stars?
- No.
Not really. Also...
...I need to see all the things that
Nigel has pulled...
...for Gwyneth's second cover try.
I wonder if she's lost any of
that weight yet. Who is that?
Nobody.
Well, Human Resources sent her up
about the new assistant job.
I was sort of
preinterviewing her for you.
But she's hopeless
and totally wrong for this...
Well, clearly, I have to
do that myself.
The last two you sent me
were completely inadequate...
...so send her in.
That's all.
Right.
- She wants to see you.
- She does?
Move.
This is foul. Don't let her see it.
- That's my...
- Go.
Who are you?
My name is Andy Sachs.
I recently graduated from
Northwestern University.
And what are you doing here?
Well, I think I could do a good job
as your assistant.
And...
I came to New York to be a journalist,
and sent letters out everywhere...
...and finally got a call
from Elias-Clarke...
...and met with Sherry
up at Human Resources and...
Basically, it's this or Auto Universe.
- So you don't read Runway?
- No.
- Before today, you'd never heard of me?
- No.
And you have no style
or sense of fashion.
Well...
I think that depends on
what you're...
No, no. That wasn't a question.
I was editor in chief of
The Daily Northwestern.
I also won a national competition for
college journalists with my series...
...on the janitors' union...
...which exposed the exploitation of...
- That's all.
Yeah, you know, okay.
You're right. I don't fit in here.
I am not skinny or glamorous and
I don't know that much about fashion...
...but I'm smart.
- I learn fast and work very hard.
- I've got the exclusive on...
...the Cavalli for Gwyneth.
The problem is, with that huge
feathered headdress she's wearing...
...she looks like she's working
the stage at the Golden Nugget.
Thank you for your time.
Who is that sad little person?
Are we doing a before-and-after piece
I don't know about?
