“Hey, who’s gonna play Mr. Jamison’s fly assistant? Because I have some ideas: Beyoncé, Queen Latifah, and Meryl Streep, ’cause that bitch can play anybody.”

Andrea (Gabourey Sidibe) to Rita Strauss (Allison Janney), THE BIG C, S3.E6, “Life Rights”


“You can’t be fat and mean, Andrea…. If you’re gonna dish it out, you gotta be able to lick it up. Fat people are jolly for a reason. Fat repels people, but joy attracts them. Now I know everyone’s laughing at your cruel jokes but nobody’s inviting you to the prom. So you can either be fat and jolly, or a skinny bitch. It’s up to you.”

Cathy (Laura Linney) to Andrea (Gabourey Sidibe) in the pilot episode of The Big C (Darlene Hunt, Creator and Executive Producer, Showtime, 2010 to Present)
