'Ugly Betty' Bites: 18 Betty-ful clips from last night!

Another Friday night, another great batch of one-liners from the deliciously dialogued Ugly Betty! Here were my favorite quips from the evening:

“I really liked your pitch for a green issue. Wilhelmina was wrong—it did not reek of recycled manure.” —Matt, to Betty

“And I really liked your get sporty idea. You were not ‘nothing but nose hair’ while you were pitching it.” —Betty, to Matt

“Well, what an unpleasant surprise.” —Willy, upon encountering Daniel and Betty when coming out of the elevator

“Think of the tiny baby orphans! And your public image.” —Marc, convincing Willy that she has to do the charity party for Tibetan orphans

“At Wilhelmina’s apartment? How exclusive! Can you steal me something, like a napkin, an olive—anything!” —Justin, being his hilarious self after finding out that Betty got invited to the charity bash Willy is throwing at her apartment

“No, I’m cool with it. I’m more than cool with it. I’m freezing with it! Brrrrr!” —Betty, hilariously feigning being OK when Matt said he was bringing a date to Willy’s party

“What? You’re going with Betty’s Matt? Isn’t that going to break her pudgy little heart?” —Marc, to Amanda, about her going as Matt’s plus-one to Willy’s charity party

“Oh, Mandi! You’re having real feelings! Now I am happy for you!” —Marc, after Mandi says that she feels bad for what she’s doing to Betty

“I hate feelings! Marc, when did I get so deep?” —Mandi

“Well, if you think I do my own cleaning, you don’t know me very well!” —Willy, to the detective, who accused her of cleaning up after her daughter’s murder

“The writer finished a draft of your speech. I think it’s appropriately faux-modest, but preachy.” —Marc, to Willy

“I took the job because I wanted to be a fashion editor—not a digger of dirt or, fond as I am of ascots and monocles, a junior detective. I’m sorry, I can’t spend one more moment of my life scrounging around in dumpsters looking for horrible information on people!” —Marc, initially refusing to dig up dirt on the blackmailing detective for Willy

“He has hoagie money? What’s he blackmailing me for?” —Willy, to Marc, about the supposed blackmailing detective’s wealth

“I feel so bad about what happened. I just thought you’d have a better chance at a love connection if we placed an ad for your special needs.” —Amanda, after placing a Craigslist ad for Betty that asked for men looking for plus-sized women

“Yes you can! It’s so Julia Roberts from My Best Friend’s Wedding. I love that for you.” —Justin, urging Betty to go to Willy’s charity party alone

“I need scissors, thread, and the dress you wore to Archie’s fundraiser. This is my Project Runway moment, and I’m gonna make it work!” —Justin, fixing up one of Hilda’s “fat” dresses for Betty to wear to Willy’s fundraiser

“Well, what can I say? I’m a giver.” —Willy, a faux-earnest line that no regular Ugly Betty viewer would buy

“You’re not turning yourself in. And you, you’re not killing anyone! What’s with this family?” —Marc, to Nico and Willy, who are fighting about what they should do with the murder mess they’re in

So, Ugly Betty fans, which quips did I miss? Do you have a fave?

    There was a funny line in the beginning about having a little bit of corny stuck in my teeth. If I remember correctly, Marc said it to Mandi or Betty.

  • cruzilla

    So I guess this is what we have to look forward to in EW now that Alynda, Josha and Marc were let go. Quoting from a TV show now passes as journalism.

    • ger

      Nice try, but this is pretty much what the Ugly Betty recaps have been this season. And I’m pretty sure that Josh wasn’t let go – he’s the new editor of vulture.com.

  • Ugly Jenny

    I love Ugly Betty, that’s where I got my EW blog name from! I hate the timeslot ABC put it in, thank God for my sister’s TiVo! I’m still waiting for the day for Betty and Daniel to fall in love like in the novela version…sign…

  • Jennifer

    I LOVED the episode last night. And the end was just daring! It had me smiling forever. Remember to watch Betty on Fridays, ABC!!

  • paul

    I loved when Marc said “There’s a piece of corny in my throat.”

  • chattypatra

    I loved it when Matt said he liked Betty’s dress at the party, and then he “roared”. Ha!

  • Davey

    I thought this was one of the better Betty episodes and thought the scene of Betty dancing at the end by herself was wonderful.

  • kk

    I’m glad that Justin’s project runway moment turned out better than Jenny’s on Gossip Girl when she made lily’s dress.

  • maxwell19596

    This season the show does seem to have returned to top form. Betty “dancing by herself” at the end of the episode was a great touch. I knew Daniel’s new friend seemed to good to be true, and of course in this episode we find out she is up to no good. He should have picked the super nerdy guy Betty wanted for his assistant. Also the hot picture Betty’s sister emailed every one. Funny!

    • nado

      My computer will not run through the whole episode and I missed Friday, Nov 8th. Will you let me know what happened after the lunch with Betty’s replacement, Daniel and Betty? Thank you so much!

  • Valley Girl

    There was a line by Willy about shoes while she stepped on the real detective’s back…

    Am still finding this show entertaining, though with Betty’s revamped look, one can’t really call her “ugly” at all…

  • Nicole

    I love Ugly Betty this season. I missed all last season because of work and a roomate who refused to watch it. Is she really in danger of being cancelled?

    • Jennifer

      yeah Nicole it is in big danger…it will probably get a full season but I dont think we’ll see it for a fifth season which is so sad because its been wonderful this seaon.

  • chuck

    bring back recap — season 4 is awesome

    • Jennifer

      agreed =)
