"You're a fraud. You're a walking lie...

...and I can see right through you."

"Speaking of which, as a friend, some advice. I would stay out of bathing suits for a while. At least a two piece."

[Great Moments in Screen Bitchery #701, Meryl Streep in Death Becomes Her (1992)]

Gosh - secretly love this movie. Who knew Meryl's greatest put-on accent was catty bitch?

This series of posts is really affecting the way I watch movies. The other day I was watching "Staying Alive", which was terrible, of course, except for Finola Hughes' awesome bitch moments. Her best moment in screen bitchery came in a scene where Travolta is getting all clingy after they sleep together and she's not interested in him anymore.

Travolta: "So that didn't mean anything? Sleeping with some guy is just something you do every day, like eating breakfast?"
Finola: "I skip breakfast most days."

At first you think she's missed the point of the conversation, until you realize that's *exactly* what she meant to say. It was brilliant.

This entire movie is a bitch fest. Long before the work "frenemy" was uttered, this was IT.

"Could you just not breathe."
One of my favorites!
