Are you as heartbroken as I am over the series finale of Ugly Betty tonight? Obviously, it’s one of my favorite shows since it’s centered around the magazine and publishing world. But more than that, I’ve always loved the way Betty handled herself: As a strong, fierce, self-assured and self-confident woman who wouldn’t let anyone stand in her way or get her down. It didn’t matter that she wasn’t as stick-thin or “beautiful” as the people in the fashion world that she covered at fictional magazine Mode. She did things her way. Always.
I love these memorable quotes from the series!
“Maybe you’re thinking of the old Betty, because the new Betty is fearless. Look, no bangs!” — Betty
“Thank God it’s hunting season. If I can’t have the man that I want, at least I can kill something.” — Wilhelmina
“I swear to Barbara, if I don’t get my salad in the next five minutes I will throw a fit with the fury of a thousand queens!” — Marc
“Ugh, I’m still bored. Watching nerd love is so tedious.” — Amanda
“You showed up on a daily basis looking like a yard sale. Didn’t even care. It’s like you were genetically engineered without the fear gene. I gotta give you props. FYI, none of this means I like you or anything.” — Amanda (to Betty)
I’ll miss you, Betty, Thanks for being such an inspiration! Are you guys going to watch tonight? Do you want Betty and Daniel to end up together? I secretly always have! xoxo
P.P.S. Who didn’t love her poncho in the first episode?
