Fun Time Open Thread: Badass Lady Quotes

We’re about to crown the baddest of all the TV badasses, according to majority vote. In honor of the fantastic ladies who have fallen out of the race, here are a few reminders of just what makes them so great.  Do you know who said:

  1. “Yes sir, Cap’n Tight-Pants.”
  2. “He’s been drinking from the keg of glory.  We’re to bring him all the muffins and bagels in the land.”
  3. “Hallucinogenic lipstick. Worked wonders on President Kennedy. And Cleopatra was a real pushover.”
  4. “According to the internet, another popular slumber party activity is harmless experiments with lesbianism.”
  5. “Oh yeah, that’s a real load off, that is! I’m hanging in the sky in the middle of a German air raid with a Union Jack across my chest but, hey, my mobile phone’s off!”
  6. “There are three things you can never have enough of in life, Lieutenant: chocolate, friends and the theatre.”
  7. “Suzanne, of all the experiences I would like to avoid, I believe having my pantyhose changed in the front hallway of the Governor’s Mansion would rank right up there.”
  8. “Who would’ve thought that Hell would exist – and that it would be in New Jersey?”
  9. “Hell, yeah! I’m gonna take that flower grenade and chuck it to the crowd and scream, ‘Crawl for it, bitches!’ It’s just what girls do”
  10. “Remember that sex we were planning to have *ever* again?”
  11. “You are my heroine! And by heroine I mean lady hero. I don’t want to inject you and listen to jazz.”

*Bonus – Here’s one from a real, live badass lady:

“Do what you feel in your heart to be right- for you’ll be criticized anyway. You’ll be damned if you do, and damned if you don’t.”

Words to live by.
