You thought I didn't know

Miranda Priestly:
You thought I didn't know. I've known what was happening for quite some time. It just took me a little while to find a suitable alternative for Jacqueline. And that James Holt job was just so absurdly overpaid that of course she jumped at it. So I just had to tell Irv that Jacqueline was unavailable. Truth is, there's no one that can do what I do. Including her. Any of the other choices would have found that job impossible and the magazine would have suffered. Especially because of the list. The list of designers, photographers, editors, writers, models, all of whom were found by me, nurtured by me and have promised me they will follow me whenever and if ever I choose to leave Runway. So he reconsidered. But I was very very impressed by how intently you tried to warn me. I never thought I would say this, Andrea, but I really, I see a great deal of myself in you. You can see beyond what people want, and what they need and you can choose for yourself.
Andy Sachs:
I don't think I'm like that. I couldn't do what you did to Nigel, Miranda. I couldn't do something like that.
Miranda Priestly:
You already did. To Emily.
Andy Sachs:
That's not what I... no, that was different. I didn't have a choice.
Miranda Priestly:
No, no, you chose. You chose to get ahead. You want this life. Those choices are necessary.
Andy Sachs:
But what if this isn't what I want? I mean what if I don't wanna live the way you live?
Miranda Priestly:
Oh, don't be ridiculous. Andrea. Everybody wants this. Everybody wants to be us.

Transcript:
You thought I didn't know.
I've known what was happening
for quite some time.
It just took me a little while to find
a suitable alternative for Jacqueline.
And that James Holt job
was just so absurdly overpaid...
...that of course she jumped at it.
So I just had to tell Irv
that Jacqueline was unavailable.
Truth is, there is no one
that can do what I do.
Including her.
Any of the other choices
would have found that job impossible...
...and the magazine
would have suffered.
Especially because of the list.
The list of designers, photographers,
editors, writers, models...
...all of whom were found by me,
nurtured by me...
...and have promised me
they will follow me...
...whenever and if ever
I chose to leave Runway.
So he reconsidered.
But I was very, very impressed
by how intently you tried to warn me.
I never thought I would say this,
Andrea, but I really...
I see a great deal of myself in you.
You can see beyond what people want,
and what they need...
...and you can choose for yourself.
I don't think I'm like that.
I...
I couldn't do what you did to Nigel.
I couldn't do something like that.
You already did.
To Emily.
That's not what I...
No, that was different.
I didn't have a choice.
Oh, no, you chose.
You chose to get ahead.
You want this life,
those choices are necessary.
But what if this isn't what I want?
I mean, what if I don't wanna live
the way you live?
Oh, don't be ridiculous, Andrea.
Everybody wants this.
Everybody wants to be us.
I have to be at work in 20 minutes.
What's up?
Well, I just...
I wanted to say
that you were right about everything.
That...
...I turned my back on my friends
and my family...
