Quotes from the Movie Broadcast News

I think we have the kind of friendship where if I were the devil, you'd be the only one I would tell.

Aaron Altman

Wouldn't this be a great world if insecurity and desperation made us more attractive? If "needy" were a turn-on?

Aaron Altman

And if things had gone differently for me tonight then I probably wouldn't be saying any of this. I grant you everything. But give me this: he personifies everything that you've been fighting against. And I'm in love with you. How do you like that? I buried the lead.

Aaron Altman

I know you care about him. I've never seen you like this about anyone, so please don't take it wrong when I tell you that I believe that Tom, while a very nice guy, is the Devil.

Aaron Altman

What do you think the Devil is going to look like if he's around? Nobody is going to be taken in if he has a long, red, pointy tail. No. I'm semi-serious here. He will look attractive and he will be nice and helpful and he will get a job where he influences a great God-fearing nation and he will never do an evil thing... he will just bit by little bit lower standards where they are important. Just coax along flash over substance... Just a tiny bit. And he will talk about all of us really being salesmen. And he'll get all the great women.

Aaron Altman

No, I think anyone who puckers up their lips and presses it against their bosses buttocks and then smooches is an ass-kisser.

Aaron Altman

And in the middle of all this, I started to think about the one thing that makes me feel really good and makes immediate sense... and it's you.

Aaron Altman

I'm going to stop right now. Except that I would give anything if you were two people, so that I could call up the one who's my friend and tell her about the one that I like so much!

Aaron Altman

Except for socially, you're my role model.

Blair Litton

Oh, you think anyone who's proud of the work we do is an ass-kisser.

Blair Litton

My gosh... and for a while there I was attracted to you.

Blair Litton

What do you do when your real life exceeds your dreams?

Tom Grunnick

You're an amazing woman - what a feeling having you inside my head!

Tom Grunnick

It's like - indescribable - you knew just when to feed me the next line, you knew the m... second before I needed it. There was like, a rhythm* we got into - it was like - great sex!

Tom Grunnick

Just remember that you're not just reading the news, you're narrating it. Everybody has to sell a little. You're selling them this idea of you, you know, you're sort of saying, trust me I'm, um, credible. So when you feel yourself just reading, stop! Start selling a little.

Tom Grunnick

It must be nice to always believe you know better, to always think you're the smartest person in the room.

Paul Moore

Now, if there's anything I can do for you...
