5 Perfect Quotes From HBO’s ‘Girls’ Season 4, Episode 7

Here at HuffPost Women, one of the things we love most about Lena Dunham’s HBO show, “Girls,” is the incisive, witty and hilarious dialogue that Dunham and the rest of her writing team come up with every week. So instead of simply recapping Season 4, we decided to pick five quotable gems from each episode.

Episode 7: “Ask Me My Name”

At the start of this episode, Hannah starts a new career as a substitute teacher, drawing connections between the Oedipus Complex to the “MILF” in an inventive, albeit inappropriate, pedagogical style. A strapping fellow educator, Fran (Played by Jake Lacy, who we recognized for his role in “Obvious Child”), invites Hannah to drinks, which she accepts in her first inaugural post-Adam date.

Hannah interrupts a great first date to drag an oblivious Fran to Mimi-Rose’s art show, where Marni and Desi also happen to be. As is Adam, who confronts Hannah about the ambush. Turning the tables, Hannah claims his instant recognition of her “in a crowd of 40-70 people” is proof he’s not over her. All in front of Fran. Poor Fran.

Without Fran, Hannah follows the art coterie to the after-party. Mimi-Rose insists she and Hannah ride together, while Adam is stuck with Mimi-Rose’s former partner Adam (Zachary Quinto) who declares his intention to get MRH back. A series of “only in New York” events — a tumbled octogenarian there, a bodega robbery there — allow an odd, yet touching kinship between Hannah and her ex-boyfriend’s new girlfriend. Mimi Rose even offers to give Adam back to Hannah through a fun little creative project. Hannah, naturally, rejects the idea. Still, by the episode’s end, Mimi-Rosie has fully endeared herself to Hannah through multiple laundromat soliloquies. In the most tender moment between the two since last season, Hannah is moved to tell Adam that “she gets it.”

adamfrandate

Hannah on why she masturbates before going out on a date: “That’s what you do before a date. so the sexual tension doesn’t overwhelm the evening, so you can think.”

Elijah consulting on Hannah’s outfit choice: “I mean if you want him to think you killed your kids and have been living in the Florida panhandle, knock yourself out.”

Fran on his occasional quid pro quo teaching style: “Joe and I have an arrangement. He brings me a juice box, and I don’t fail his older sister.”

Mimi-Rose explaining the synopsis for her book: “It’s a psychosexual thriller told from the perspective of a dead woman who solves her own murder using this hologram technology she invented.”

Jessa on her romantic future with Ace: “I’ll be pregnant with his twins by May.”

5 Perfect Quotes From HBO’s ‘Girls’ Season 4, Episode 2

Here at HuffPost Women, one of the things we love most about Lena Dunham’s HBO show, “Girls,” is the incisive, witty and hilarious dialogue that Dunham and the rest of her writing team come up with every week. So instead of simply recapping Season 4, we decided to pick five quotable gems from each episode.

Episode 1: “Triggering”

Hannah’s arrival in Iowa is the focus of this episode. The landing is smooth: Hannah scores a house to live in for $ 250 a month and a snazzy new bike that she doesn’t have to lock because “this is Iowa.” A video chat with Marnie reveals that Hannah and Adam don’t seem to be on speaking terms, but Marnie promises to let her know if he goes into the hospital, (because Marnie would definitely be the first on he’d call?). Cracks in Hannah’s midwestern paradise soon begin to show. She is forced to escape her suburban fortress when the prior tenant, which happens to be a very aggressive bird, shows up angry. She gets locked out but climbs in through an unlocked window because, you know, this is Iowa. But Hannah’s here to write, and what better place to find self affirmation than a graduate level fiction course? Many other places, as Hannah learns. She shares an excerpt detailing an interesting, “50-shades” type sexual encounter, and she is offended by her classmate’s critique. She invents some friends — Shannon, Jeff, Jonesly, Ranchini, Nagasaki and Cher — and wallows until a surprise visit from Elijah. The two hit the town hard. Hannah counsels weepy undergraduates and Elijah offers massages. They wake up the next morning covered in dried blue paint, because, you know, this is Iowa.

Hannah protesting the concept of “TMI”: “By the way, TMI is such an outdated concept. There’s no such thing as too much information, this is the information age!”

Elijah on his friendly reception. “On the way to the airport, two people asked me if I was Blake Lively’s husband. Iowa is amazing!”

Classmates on whether Hannah’s “fiction” might be autobiographical: “I mean, the main character is a girl with a lot of tattoos named Anna who needs to eat every two hours or she passes out.”

Marnie offering Hannah support the way only a BFF can: “No one is moving to Iowa ever, but I’m so, so glad you’re happy.”

Hannah on why her story excludes the male perspective: “One word: history.”

5 Perfect Quotes From HBO’s ‘Girls’ Season 3, Episode 11

Here at HuffPost Women, one of the things we love most about Lena Dunham’s HBO show, “Girls,” is the incisive, witty and hilarious dialogue that Dunham and the rest of her writing team come up with every week. So instead of simply recapping Season 3, we decided to pick five quotable gems from each episode.

Episode 11: “I Saw You”

In the penultimate episode of season 3, Adam is spending most of his time preparing for his Broadway debut, while Hannah is becoming increasingly insecure — not only in their relationship, but also in her career. Her anxiety grows after she and Elijah pay a visit to Patti LuPone’s home, where Hannah realizes that there’s really only enough room for one star in a relationship. Her frustration and general creative ennui come to head in a GQ advertorial meeting, during which she gets fired from — and subsequently quits — her job. Meanwhile, Jessa is bored out of her mind and sober, but manages to make a (potentially professional) connection with artist B.D. (played by Louise Lasser) at Marnie’s gallery. The rest of the crew attends Marnie’s shockingly un-cringeworthy open-mic performance. The episode comes to an end with a horrified Hannah barging in on Marnie and Ray having casual sex, and in true Hannah fashion, she tells Marnie: “You can never judge me again.”

1. Patti LuPone on following your dreams: “The worst thing you can do is subjugate your passion.”

2. B.D. on aging when you’re a woman: “I hate watching television because all the old women are shells… and it just hurts to be a shell.”

3. Hannah on the soul-sucking nature of corporate America: “Do you think we were gonna grow up and be in a sweatshop factory for puns? Maybe this is a cooler for dead souls.”

4. Hannah’s life philosophy: “Everything’s my business.”

5. Ray on personal boundaries: “This is America, you don’t just barge into someone’s f**king bedroom!”

5 Perfect Quotes From HBO’s ‘Girls’ Season 3, Episode 7

Here at HuffPost Women, one of the things we love most about Lena Dunham’s HBO show, “Girls,” is the incisive, witty and hilarious dialogue that Dunham and the rest of her writing team come up with every week. So instead of simply recapping Season 3, we decided to pick five quotable gems from each episode.

Episode 7: “Beach House”

Marking the start of the second half of the season, this episode offered some of the most gratifying dialogue of the series so far. Marnie, uptight as ever, hosts a girls weekend at her mom’s friend Suzanne’s beach house (because who doesn’t have a mom’s friend Suzanne?) where she hopes the four girls can “heal” — at least as far as social media is concerned. When a scantily-clad Hannah runs into Elijah on the street, the two reconcile, and Hannah invites him and a few hangers on back to Marnie’s. This disrupts Marnie’s plans for an extravagant French meal for four and enough wine-fueled nostalgia to cancel out two years of passive aggression. Eventually, the night gives way to dancing and derision, and Shosh droops some of the most incredibly satisfying truth bombs we’ve ever heard.

girlss3e72

1. Hannah on “Spring Breakers”: “I thought that movie was the perfect blend of art and commerce.”

2. Jessa’s #1 rule for swimming: “I can’t go in open water unless I’m menstruating.”

3. Marnie on the realities of modern friendship: “Guys, we’re so disconnected now. I thought that this would be a good opportunity to have fun together and prove to everyone via Instagram that we can still have fun as a group.”

4. Shosh calling Hannah out on her well-documented narcissism: “Seriously, I have never met anyone who thinks their life is so f**king fascinating. I wanted to fall asleep in my own vomit all day listening to you talk about how you bruise more easily than other people.”

5. Jessa defending Shoshanna’s intellect: “I’m going to stick up for Shosh on this one and say that I actually have seen her read the newspaper on her phone.”

5 Perfect Quotes From HBO’s ‘Girls’ Season 3, Episode 6

Here at HuffPost Women, one of the things we love most about Lena Dunham’s HBO show, “Girls,” is the incisive, witty and hilarious dialogue that Dunham and the rest of her writing team come up with every week. So instead of simply recapping Season 3, we decided to pick five quotable gems from each episode.

Episode 6: “Free Snacks”

This week we see Hannah putting her big-girl pants on, quitting her job at Ray’s and entering corporate America as a sponsored content write for GQ. Although she’s initially seduced by the free snack room and praise from her cool-as-a-cucumber boss (played by the ever-stylish Jenna Lyons), she quickly becomes terrified that a 9-5 job that isn’t quite “spiritually fulfilling” will destroy her ability to be a “real writer.” Meanwhile, Jessa is forcefully selling black christening dresses to rich Brooklyn moms, Shosh has decided to “unchoose” her reckless lifestyle and find a for-real, serious boyfriend, and Ray and Marnie are taking the first, tentative steps toward a beyond-sex romantic connection. Of course, they also end up in a restaurant during lunchtime yelling at each other about Africa and western aid over dumplings. But, as we all know, the course of true love temporary companionship never did run smooth.

1. Hannah accepting praise: “Yeah, I feel like that wasn’t as re-tweeted as it should have been, so I appreciate the support.”

2. Shosh on Ray’s basketball skills: “Ray really seems to have the respect of his peers on the court.” Jessa: “That’s amazing. It’s really hard for a Jew to gain respect in sports.”

3. Hannah suggesting types of men at her new GQ job: “The Kaballer. He’s a little sleazy. He’s like, out looking for sex. But he’s wearing Kaballah bracelets so you know he’s spiritual. He’d like fuck some serious enlightenment into you.”

4. Jenna Lyons, as Hannah’s boss, on her ideas: “Neiman Marcus doesn’t sell a widow’s peak, but worth considering.”

5. A fashion truth from Joe, Hannah’s coworker: “Fedoras are worse than genocide.”

Honorable Mention…
Adam on why he goes to acting auditions: “I just like reading emotional cues from strangers in a high-pressure situation.”

5 Perfect Quotes From HBO’s ‘Girls’ Season 3, Episode 5

Episode 5: “Only Child”

Any emotional capital Hannah earned at the end of last week’s episode was pretty much obliterated this week. In perhaps our favorite cameo so far, Jennifer Westfeldt plays the grieving wife of Hannah’s presumed-gay (and definitely deceased) editor, David. His widow accidentally reveals to Hannah that her book probably won’t come out. “My book is dead?” she exclaims — yes, at a funeral. Meanwhile, Ray’s invective-turned-seduction leads to an awkward, tabletop hook-up with Marnie. Another publisher offers to print Hannah’s memoir in a hilarious exchange between a high-powered female publisher and her hapless assistant. But what would our favorite millennial Bildungsroman be without a few legal roadblocks? Misdirecting her anger over a potential three-year delay in her literary aspirations, Hannah ends up kicking Adam’s sister out of their apartment.

hannah small

1. A newly-widowed Jennifer Westfeldt on her late husband’s reputation: “A lot of people think he was gay. And you know, he was sometimes.”

2. Hannah’s philosophy on conflict resolution: “I have watched enough ‘Dr. Phil’ and ‘Intervention’ to know you can work anything out, if you just talk about it.”

3. Shosh schooling Jessa on adulthood: “If you’re serious about improving yourself. You need to do more than just smoke Dorff-cigarettes. You need to grocery shop and condition your hair, even though it does so well with natural oils.”

4. Hannah on her personal brand: “Well I’m from the Midwest, so I will always be 15 to 45 pounds overweight depending on how far I live from the coast. [The] further I am from the coast, the fatter I am.”

5. Ray on Marnie’s millennial ambivalence: “You come across like you’re better than everyone, and you want no part of their lives, and then when you’re excluded from things you’re outrageously offended and hold a grudge.”

HBO’s ‘The Case Against 8’ Screening Features Reception For Gay Couples At Sundance

PARK CITY, Utah (AP) — Though they are not considered legally married in Utah, several gay and lesbian couples were feted with a wedding celebration as part of HBO’s promotion of its upcoming documentary on gay marriage, “The Case Against 8.”

The film, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival on Saturday, chronicles two gay couples battling against Proposition 8, the California law approved by voters that banned gay marriage. It was eventually declared unconstitutional. After the documentary’s debut, a reception was held featuring the two couples at the center of the legal fight, along with the film’s directors, Ben Cotner and Ryan White. The reception also featured gay couples at the center of a gay marriage battle in Utah. There was champagne and a wedding cake celebrating their unions, although the legality of them is in dispute.

“The timing is great to have the film released now, in the wake of the ruling here,” said Matthew Barraza, who attended with husband Tony Milner and their young son Jesse.

Last month, more than 1,000 same-sex couples wed in Utah after a federal judge declared the state’s ban on gay marriage unconstitutional. The state is appealing, and the Supreme Court put a halt on same-sex weddings until the case is resolved. In the meantime, Utah is not recognizing those marriages, although the federal government does.

Milner has yet to see “The Case Against 8” but said he appreciated the struggles of the couples featured in it.

“We’ve learned that it’s a battle, but it takes time. There are setbacks, but we think the inevitable result is that we’re going to have marriage equality for all Americans,” he said.

Acclaimed director Rob Reiner was also at the reception. Reiner was active in the battle to overturn Prop. 8 in California and is featured in the movie. He said he was blown away by “The Case Against 8.”

“I knew we had a good movie, but I was just stunned at how impressive it was and the reaction to it. It was amazing,” he said. “It really tells the journey that we went through to overturn Prop. 8.”

The film will air on HBO in June.
