  • Quotes

    • Samantha: (opening monologue) What happens when you achieve your dream running a multi-million dollar charity foundation but you have no idea what to do? You're like a dog who chases cars and finally catches one. Now what? I guess you chew on the tire for a while until you figure it out.

    • Tyler: Sorry Sam. This guy just walked right by me. He does not have an appointment.
      Winston Funk: Winston. Funk. Name on the building.
      Tyler: Tyler. Banks. Name on the yogurt in the fridge.

    • Dena: Come on, Andrea. Let me be in your wedding. I mean, all the celebrities are gonna be there. And I never got to be a bridesmaid before. The closest thing that I ever got was my mother's pallbearer.

    • (Andrea was previously hired by Samantha for the VP position.)
      Andrea: What's going on?
      Samantha: Maybe I was going to surprise you, Andrea, but now you're ruining it.
      Andrea: Who's that?
      Cheryl: I'm Cheryl Heinstock. Vice President of Legal Affairs.
      Samantha: Surprise! It works a lot better when she jumps out of the cake.

    • Samantha: Let's talk bridal shower. I was thinking maybe some sloppy joes, some ribs. Maybe a dancing bear. You don't have to wrestle it.
      Andrea: That's OK. That's Dena's job now.
      Dena: I have to wrestle a bear? What's the theme of this wedding?

    • Samantha: Good morning, Tyler. Can you grab all the proposals and bring them into my office? And hold all my calls.
      Tyler: I love your sense of purpose. And your bouncy ringlets.

    • Samantha: I have no idea what I'm doing. And you were the only person who would tell me that. And I think it's because you and I will tell each other the things that other people won't.
      Andrea: Or should.
      Samantha: I mean like you and your wedding. Who else is gonna say to you, 'Andrea, stop. What's up with the gay dude?'
      Andrea: No one.
      Samantha: Seriously, the guy's like super gay.

    • Samantha: (end monologue) With my amnesia, I can't dream about things I don't remember, so I dream about the future. Some people don't even want to wake from their old dreams. Some just need to make new ones. Me? For now, I have my hands full just living this one. Until the next one comes along.

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Samantha: Oh, my mission statement. Ah, well. It is to boldly go where no man has... yeah, OK. So I don't really know what a mission statement is.

      "Where no man has gone before" is a phrase used in the title sequence of the original Star Trek series -- "These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its five-year mission: to explore strange new worlds; to seek out new life and new civilizations; to boldly go where no man has gone before."
