We're women. We have a double standard to live up to.
ALLY McBEAL, Ally McBeal (1997)
Son, feelings are what women have. They come from their ovaries.
STANLEY SMITH, American Dad, "Roger Codger" (2005)
I don't hate women. I mean, sure you're all whores who sell yourselves for money or prestige, but men are just as bad. Maybe even worse. They're willing to throw away careers or families or even lives for what's under your skirt.
BILLY BLIM, Angel, "Billy" (2001)
A wife is all women to one man. She is everything that is devilish, the thorn in his side. The jealous termagant, the detective dogging all his movements, the nagger, the scolder, the worrier. He has only to tell her an affectionate lie and she becomes his comfort, his helper. At best his greatest treasure, at worst his troublesome but beloved child. All wives are all these women in one.
EPIFANIA, BBC Play of the Month, "The Millionairess" (1972)
She behaves as if she were beautiful. All American women do; it's the secret of their charm.
LORD HENRY WOTTON, BBC Play of the Month, "The Picture of Dorian Gray" (1976)
Every time a guy figures out the rules, you women change 'em. You know, if we're attentive, all of a sudden we're smothering. If we need you, we're co-dependant. If we don't need you, we're emotionally cut off. You know, if we dare ask you what the rules are, you say 'If you don't know, I'm certainly not gonna tell you.'
DR. JOHN BECKER, Becker, "Cooked" (2000)
Women, have you had love? How was it told? With diamonds and brocades? Did he ever say he loved your moments of glad grace? Did he ever say: 'My love is like a red, red rose that's newly sprung in June?' Women, you're red, red roses, you are. Blossom! Unfold! Open your corsets and bloom!
SAMSON SHILLITOE, A Fine Madness (1966)
When you're a woman livin' in a man's world, you learn real fast that fair's got nothin' to do with it. You learn you gotta be twice as good as a man just to be considered equal. You learn never to make a mistake. Never to lose your temper. Never to let down your guard. 'Cause somehow that one moment of just bein' human is gonna be used against you as a woman.
ANNIE OAKLEY, Voyagers!, "Buffalo Bill & Annie Oakley Play the Palace" (1983)
You really need to take a dip in the "sane chick" pool!
LOIS LANE, Smallville, "Roulette" (2009)
Women should be kept illiterate and clean, like canaries!
SAM CRAIG, Woman of the Year (1942)
