Something funny

Miranda Priestly:
[Miranda and some assistants are deciding between two similar belts for an outfit. Andy sniggers because she thinks they look exactly the same]
Something funny?
Andy Sachs:
No. No, no. Nothing's... You know, it's just that both those belts look exactly the same to me. You know, I'm still learning about all this stuff and, uh...
Miranda Priestly:
'This... stuff'? Oh. Okay. I see. You think this has nothing to do with you. You go to your closet and you select... I don't know... that lumpy blue sweater, for instance because you're trying to tell the world that you take yourself too seriously to care about what you put on your back. But what you don't know is that that sweater is not just blue, it's not turquoise. It's not lapis. It's actually cerulean. And you're also blithely unaware of the fact that in 2002, Oscar de la Renta did a collection of cerulean gowns. And then I think it was Yves Saint Laurent... wasn't it who showed cerulean military jackets? I think we need a jacket here. And then cerulean quickly showed up in the collections of eight different designers. And then it, uh, filtered down through the department stores and then trickled on down into some tragic Casual Corner where you, no doubt, fished it out of some clearance bin. However, that blue represents millions of dollars and countless jobs and it's sort of comical how you think that you've made a choice that exempts you from the fashion industry when, in fact, you're wearing the sweater that was selected for you by the people in this room from a pile of stuff.

Something funny?
No. No, no, nothing's...
You know, it's just that both those belts
look exactly the same to me.
You know, I'm still
learning about this stuff and...
"This stuff"?
Oh, okay. I see. You think
this has nothing to do with you.
You go to your closet...
...and you select, I don't know,
that lumpy blue sweater, for instance...
...because you're trying to tell the world
you take yourself too seriously...
...to care about what you put on...
...but what you don't know is that
that sweater is not just blue.
It's not turquoise. It's not lapis.
It's actually cerulean.
And you're also blithely
unaware of the fact...
...that in 2002, Oscar de la Renta
did a collection of cerulean gowns...
...and then it was Yves Saint Laurent
who showed cerulean military jackets.
I think we need a jacket here.
Then cerulean quickly showed up in the
collections of eight different designers.
And then it filtered down through
the department stores...
...and then trickled on down
into some tragic Casual Corner...
...where you, no doubt,
fished it out of some clearance bin.
However, that blue represents
millions of dollars and countless jobs.
And it's sort of comical how you think
that you've made a choice...
...that exempts you
from the fashion industry...
...when, in fact, you're wearing
a sweater that was selected for you...
...by the people in this room...
...from a pile of "stuff."
And then I said, no,
I couldn't see the difference...
...between the two
absolutely identical belts.
You should've seen
the look she gave me.
I swear, I thought the flesh
was gonna melt off her face.
It's not funny.
She is not happy unless everyone around
her is panicked, nauseous or suicidal.
And the clackers just worship her.
- The who?
- They call them "clackers."
The sound that their stilettos make
in the marble lobby.
It's like:
And they all act like
they're curing cancer or something.
The amount of time and energy
that these people spend...
...on these insignificant, minute details.
And for what?
So that tomorrow they can spend
another $300,000...
...reshooting something
that was fine to begin with...
...to sell people things
they don't need. God!
- I'm not even hungry anymore.
- What?
- That is why those girls are so skinny.
- Oh, no, no, no. Give me that.
There's, like, $8 of Jarlsberg in there.
Know what?
I just have to stick it out for a year.
One year.
And then I can do
what I came to New York to do.
But I can't let Miranda get to me.
I won't.
Easy there, tiger.
- Oh, good morning, Miranda.
- Get me Isaac.
I don't see my breakfast here.
Where are my eggs?
Excuse me!
Pick up the Polaroids
from the lingerie shoot.
Have the brakes checked on my car.
Where is that piece of paper
I had in my hand yesterday morning?
Girls need new surfboards...
...or boogie boards
or something for spring break.
- Hello?
- The twins also need flip-flops.
Pick up my shoes from Blahnik...
...and then go get Patricia.
- Who's that?
Good girl! Good girl! Good girl!
Get me that little table that I like
at that store on Madison.
Get us a reservation for dinner tonight
at that place that got the good review.
- Notes delivered today.
Where is everyone?
Why is no one working?
- East Side.
Get me Demarchelier.
I have Miranda Priestly
calling for... Okay.
I have Patrick.
