Memorable Monologue: The Nanny Diaries

"Okay Mrs. X, now it's time for a few simple childcare rules. Slamming the door in your kid's face is not okay. Spending more time on a benefit for kids that you've never met than you do with your own blood is not okay. Going to a SPA when your son has a fever of a hundred and four and not answering emergency calls... that officially makes you an unfit mother. Now I know that you're all pretty busy with your hair appointments, and your watsu massages and your attempts to stay young so your husbands won't leave you. But here's an idea! Why don't you try eating dinner with your child every once in a blue moon. And heads up here, lady, try smiling once in a while. People hate you."

~ Scarlett Johansson as Annie Braddock in The Nanny Diaries (2007)
