"I think women think about the emotional factor and guys think about sex. So if I'm having sex with another guy, then the guy's going to be threatened, whereas if you're spending all your time laughing and talking about emotions with a girl, the girl's going to be threatened."
"It is the rare instance that we take a deep dive backwards, that the rights and freedoms are allowed to be taken away. I don't believe that women will not fight tooth and nail to make sure that we continue to progress. I'm not going to let it happen, whether I'm here or not."
"I would never want to do youth again. And I am happiest now. . . . What is the point of regretting? You can spend a lot of time regretting. It's better to try to learn from what wasn't so good, and moving forward. If I am good in my skin now, part of it is because I have made a huge point in learning from my mistakes."
"As a woman, I'm very worried about what the Republicans propose. Women in this country have fought so hard to ensure that we have the rights that we enjoy now. And we still don't even have fair pay with men. We still have to fight."
"I think it is universal to wonder about the path not taken or the 'one who got away,' so to speak. This isn't to say that we aren't perfectly happy with our lives and our choices, though. It's just human nature to wonder 'what if.'"
"Sometimes when real-life couples work together, there's less chemistry, weirdly, and we were very aware of that, so we tried to heighten the tension. We actually didn't kiss for a week-and-a-half before that first kiss in the movie because we wanted to build up that desire and tension for each other."
"Yeah, I mean, I'm a big fan of orgasms. Frankly, it's the dessert of the meal, and I hate going out without a dessert, but I [still enjoy] the whole meal."
"I did have a Summer romance, yeah. I was a co-camp counselor once, we took care of a bunch of kids, and then we went on a couple dates. It was a very chaste Summer romance, and there was no dirty dancing involved, unfortunately."
"It's been a flow to this point. I don't think there's a perfect science to it. Maybe there is, and in that case I'd love to know. I don't have kids yet; therefore I can travel more easily perhaps. I think it's about doing what you love."
"Why do we need somebody else to make us complete? We want to be fairly complete people before we meet Mr. Right or Mrs. Right so that we know who we are. It is such an old adage that the damsel needs to be saved. That's like having another fate come in and deal with you. I think we control our own destiny. It's our own fate. Merida gets in her own trouble and she gets out of her own trouble. She doesn't need to be saved or need a prince charming at the end."
Elizabeth: "We're more boring than any other characters in [Pitch Perfect]. He was overly confident. And I'm exactly the same, even the face."
Max: "She does pretty much look exactly the same. It's kind of amazing. It was actually fairly unglamorous. We were just two college kids."
"Who created this notion of what it means to be a woman on the planet? Because none of us are living up to it. And the reality is what we're actually talking about on the show, which is that no one's doing it perfectly. We're all doing the best we can do."
"The number one thing is, you have to have a good attitude. Find the humor and the fun in things that aren't even fun. The two things that turn me off completely are negativity and if a girl's cheap. I mean, I'll pay for everything, but if a girl just mentions it, that's a turn off. That and don't wear flip-flops. It's terrible. I mean, come on. Put something on your feet. What if you have to run away? You're dead."
"If more filmmakers are developing ideas with great females at the center of the story, we should be able to take the world by storm."
Brittany: "The shoes."
Anna: "Oh, my god, I want to murder our costume designer. I will have his head on a platter."
Brittany: "She's kidding."
Anna: "I'm not kidding."
"If you generalize it, women lean on alcohol, and there is a certain demographic of hipster guys that lean on pot. In your 20s, you're doing it very socially in a group scenario. And when you move into your married life and have kids, it's something couples do together or women do alone."
"Yeah, it's a bit of a romance killer. [Grannie voice]: Back in my day, you called a woman on the phone and you ask her parents."
"It's starting to come back again. So many bright colors on clothing and stuff. I walked into the Gap and I thought, 'Well, sh*t. I should have kept some of my stuff from the '90s.'"
"I think any woman can relate to the mother-daughter experience. Teenage girls can be a handful. When you're a teenager, you just think you know it all. You think, 'I've reached my full height. This is my full maturity and I know everything,' and a good mother adjusts patiently."
"I had to Google S&M, and I was like, 'Yeah, we could do that, I guess.' It was that and the orgasm scene from When Harry Met Sally, and a little Napster research for some audio erotica. And I just wung it. I've always been sort of naturally a good winger."
"Death is inevitable. I think it's a part of our lives so that we appreciate life. There's a reason we're not all vampires. Sometimes it's sudden, and then sometimes you're 95. To me, love is the happy ending."
"It was really important for me because I wasn't very good academically. . . . And the thing that really got me excited about school were the arts programs."
"Just keep trying! Smile bigger!"
"I'm going to be Pikachu. I'm not sure who Pikachu is, except that my daughter is letting me wear her little Pikachu hat."
Rashida: "Equality. Equality and communication."
Will: "Maybe just getting the sleeping with each other out of the way early."
Rashida: "Yeah. We did that early."
"I think what happens on screen, unfortunately, may not mimic exactly what happens in real life. I'm not saying we're an old boring married couple, but we're kind of an old boring married couple. I mean, I hope we have a little fun in there. That's it! That's all I'm going to say, because I'm a lady."
"We're not advocating running around with your legs flying open. But especially through your friendships, you learn how to get in touch with yourself. And a lot of that is being confident in who you are sexually."
"There's a buddy of mine called Logan who's a Navy Seal, and he's done three tours in Iraq. And he became a trainer for Hollywood stars, and he's had enough of it. He's going back in at the age of 38; he's going back in to the Navy Seals. I think he'd be up there as the bravest."
"I get distracted by bad writing, but I also get distracted by sentences that you just know the author wrote it and then just sat back and thought, 'Wow, look at me with my metaphors, look at me with my big words, and look at me with my onomatopoeia.'"
"I think Fran Lebowitz said at one point, Americans don't hate the rich, because they always think that will be them someday, that they're impending rich. . . . This aspirational, everybody wanting to go bigger and bigger and have the trappings of luxury is part of our culture, and I think popular culture has a huge effect on that. I think watching these shows, seeing our aspirational advertising, makes us want that."
