Awesome: Bridget Jones
  • Bridget quitting Daniel and her job and giving him this gem:
    Bridget: Thank you, Daniel, that is very good to know. But if staying here means working within 10 yards of you, frankly, I'd rather have a job wiping Saddam Hussein's arse.
    • Also Perpetua sticking up for Bridget:
      Perpetua: I want to hear this. Because if she gives one inch, I'm going to fire her bony little bottom anyway for being totally spineless.
  • Bridget, after telling off Mark, rejects Daniel's offer of starting over again:
    Daniel: Come on Bridget, we belong together - you, me, poor little skirt. If I can't make it with you then I can't make it with anyone.
    Bridget: That's not a good enough offer for me.
  • May have been short and didn't stop the couple from hassling her about her single status, but Bridget's comeback and Mark's rebuttal just fits and points out early the chemistry they share:
    Bridget: [to Cosmo and Woney] Tell me, is it one in four marriages that end in divorce these days, or one in three?
    Mark: One in three.
  • Daniel and Marks' Wimp Fight is this and a Crowning Moment of Funny
  • Bridget telling off Mark after the "Smug Married" dinner, this pushes him to start admitting the feelings he has been harboring for her and leads to a Crowning Moment of Heartwarming
    Bridget: Look, are you and Cosmo in on this together? Because every time I see you, you seem to go out of your way to make me feel like a *complete* idiot. And you really needn't bother: I already feel like an idiot most of the time anyway - with or without the fireman's pole.
  • In the sequel to the novel, Shazzer tells off Cosmo and Woney, the Smug Married couple, for bugging Bridget about not being married and that her life isn't any less well-adjusted than theirs. She scares them off.
