zoolander movie quotes
Derek: Rufus, Brint, and Meekus were like brothers to me. And when I say brother, I don't mean like an actual brother but I mean it like the way black people use it which is more meaningful, I think.
Matilda: Derek, Derek?
Derek: What do you want?
Matilda: Actually I'm trying to talk to Mugatu but he's tougher to get to than the president.
Derek: Oh, I thought you were gonna tell me what a bad "eugoogolizer" I am.
Matilda: A what?
Derek: A "eugoogolizer." One who speaks at funerals. Or did you think that I would be too stupid to know what a "eugoogoly" was?
Maury: Go back home? You're overreacting.
Derek: I want to do something meaningful with my life Maury. I have deeper thoughts on my mind. The other day I was thinking about volunteering to help teach underpriviledged children to learn how to read. And just thinking about it was the most rewarding experience I've ever had.
Maury: Derek, I don't think you're cut out for that kind of thing.
Derek: I mean, maybe I could even have my own institute. We could call it the Derek Zoolander Center for Kids Who Can't Read Good.
Maury: But this is Mugatu, Derek. Right now this guy is so hot he can take a crap, wrap it in tinfoil, put a couple of fishhooks on it and sell it to Queen Elizabeth as earrings.
Zoolander: I deserve to die if I can't beat Han-suck-a@@ in a walk off.
Matilda: Derek, that's not true. The guy had to miraculously pull his underwear out of his butt just to beat you.
Zoolander: And all he had to do was turn left.
Matilda: What do you mean?
Zoolander: I'm not an ambi-turner. It's a problem I had since I was a baby. I can't turn left.
Zoolander: I know that hand. It was in the fall 1973 Bulova watch catalog. You're J.P. Prewitt. The world's greatest hand model.
J.P.: And that's when I found out I was in line to assassinate Jimmy Carter.
Matilda: So how'd you manage to escape?
J.P.: Because I'm a hand model, mama. A finger jockey. We don't think the same as the face and body boys do. We're a different breed.
Zoolander: But I won't kill anybody.
J.P.: It's not up to you. At the proper moment, they'll trigger you. Usually using some kind of auditory or visual Pavlovian response mechanism.
Matilda: Every day after school I would come home and you know, I'd flip through the pages of my mom's Vogue and Glamour and … I'd just … I'd look at these women .. These perfect, beautiful … just unbelievable skinny women. I just couldn't - Oh, I just couldn't understand why I didn't look like them. I just didn't get it. So um … so I became …
Zoolander: You can read minds?
Zoolander: Oh, snap!
Derek: Listen Matil, I've been thinking a lot about that bulimia thing. And I want you to know I understand where you're coming from. I feel really bad that good-looking people like us made you throw up and feel bad about yourself. For serious.
Mugatu [over intercom]: I am vile spew of the wretched masses. I am really, really dirty. I am Derelicte!
Mugatu: They're break dance fighting!
Hansel: He tried to brainwash Derek to kill the Claymation dude!
Maury: I love that kid. Dumb as a stump but I love that kids.
Prime Minister: Thank you, Derek Zoolander, for saving my life.
Zoolander [In Malaysian]: On belhalf of world fashion, you're welcome Mr. Prime Rib of Propecia.
Jaco: It takes months to recruit and train an operative!
Georgio: What about Fabio?
Woman: Too smart. This is a rush job. He's got to be extremely dim witted.
Council Member: You know the profile, Jacobim.
Woman: A beautigul, self absorbed simpleton who can be manipulated and molded like Jell-O.
Council Member: Or cookie dough.
Council Member: Or Play Doh.
Woman: Any kind of dough!
Donald Trump: Look, without Derek Zoolander, male modeling wouldn't be what it is today.
Matilda: Derek, I don't know if you're familiar with the belief that some aboriginal tribes hold. It's the concept that a photo might steal a part of your soul. What are your thoughts on that if someone gets his picture taken for a living?
Zoolander: Well I guess I would have to answer your question with another question. How many abo-diginals do you see modeling?
Maury: I've gotta get inside. I'm "shvitzing" like a "shmedrik" with all these lights.
Hansel: I hear a lot of words like "beauty" and "handsomeness" and "incredibly chiseled features." To me that's like a vanity, a self-absorbtion that I try to steer clear of. I dig the bungee. For me, it's just the way I live my life. I grip it and I rip it. I live it with a lot of flair. I live it on the edge, where I gotta be. I wasn't like every other kids you know who dreams about being and astronaut. I was always more interested in aaaaa … what bark was made out of on a tree. Richard Gere's a real hero of mine. Sting. Sting would be another person who's a hero. The music that he's created over the years - I don't really listen to it. But the fact that he's making it, I respect that. I care desperately about what I do. Do I know what product I'm selling? No. Do I know what I'm doing today? No. But I'm here and I'm gonna give it my best shot.
Zoolander: Modeling, to me, isn't just about being good-looking or having a lot of fun and being really, really good looking. The caledar was great because it gave people a chance to see a side of my versatility. The original Greek word for model means "misshapen ball of clay" and I try to think about that every time I get in front of a camera.
Zoolander: Who am I? I don't know. I guess I have a lot of things to ponder.
Rufus: And the way Hansel combs his hair.
Meekus: Or like doesn't. It's like, "ex-squeeze" me, but have you ever heard of styling gel?
Brint: I'm sure Hansel's heard of styling gel. He's a male model.
Meekus: Earth to Brint. I was making a joke.
Brint: Earth to Meekus. Duh, okay? I knew that.
Meekus: Earth to Brint. I'm not so sure you did 'cause you were all, "I'm sure he's heard of styling gel" like you didn't know it was a joke.
Brint: I knew it was a joke, Meeus. I just didn't get it right away.
Zoolander: Did you ever think there's more to life than being really, really … really ridiculously good looking? I mean maybe we should be doing something more meaningful with our lives. Like helping people.
Brint: Uhhhh … Derek, what people?
Zoolander: I don't know. People who need help.
