Joy Gets Her Business Back
Joy Selling Mop Idea
Joy: Don’t ever think that the world owes you anything, because it doesn’t. The world doesn’t owe you a thing.
Rudy: [Referring to his ex-wife] You know what you are? You’re like a gas leak. We don’t see, we don’t smell you, and your silently killing us all.
Young Joy: [Young Joy to Joy during a nightmare] When you’re hiding you’re safe, because people can’t see you. But funny thing about hiding: you’re even hidden from yourself.
Joy: [after Peggy attended her meeting without consent] Never speak, on my behalf, about my business, again.
Mimi: [about Tony & Joy] They were the best divorced couple in America. Much better friends than they were husband and wife.
Trudy: My late husband Morry – I met him in Milano for a trade show, for a swimwear line – used to say: sailing in the winter is the best comparison to life in the world of commerce.
Neil Walker: I guess you could say we’re friends in the commerce.
Joy: Friends in commerce. Yeah.
Neil Walker: So, let’s promise each other, that if one day, and that day may come, that we become adversaries in commerce, that we remain friends. That’s a true friendship, indeed.
Joy: Friends in commerce. I agree, let’s shake on it.
Mimi: [narrating] She’d put up with just about anything… until when she had to bring the hammer down – she brought the hammer down.
Joy: [at her mother’s deathbed] I so hated to leave her that day. I had so much I wanted to say to her… and to my great-granddaughter. I felt I wanted to stay near her and watch over her.
