For days when you just have the need of an incredibly good-looking quote or are feeling a bit derelicte, thank goodness for Derek Zoolander and his eugoogoolizing abilities. Or more accurately some great random quotes from the Internet Movie Database:
Derek Zoolander: Have you ever wondered if there was more to life, other than being really, really, ridiculously good looking?
Hansel: I wasn’t like every other kid, you know, who dreams about being an astronaut, I was always more interested in 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 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.
This never gets old.
Mugatu: It’s that damn Hansel! He’s so hot right now!
Derek Zoolander: Moisture is the essence of wetness, and wetness is the essence of beauty.
Mugatu: Let me show you Derelicte. It is a fashion, a way of life inspired by the very homeless, the vagrants, the crack whores that make this wonderful city so unique.
[Talking about the files]
Hansel: They’re *in* the computer?
Much more enjoyable than 2001: A Space Odyssey. And shorter.
J.P. Prewitt: The truth is male models have been assassinating world leaders for over 200 years. Abe Lincoln wanted to abolish slavery, right? Well, who do you think made the silk stockings and powdered wigs worn by our early leaders?
Derek Zoolander: Mugatu!
J.P. Prewitt: [pauses] Slaves, Derek. So they hired John Wilkes Booth to do Mr. Lincoln in. The first model/actor! Dallas. 1963. John F. Kennedy.
Matilda: Lee Harvey Oswald wasn’t a male model.
J.P. Prewitt: You’re goddamn right he wasn’t, but the two lookers who capped Kennedy from the Grassy Knoll sure as shit were!
Listen to your friend Billy Zane, he’s a cool dude!
Derek Zoolander: Why do you hate models, Matilda?
Matilda: I think they’re vain, stupid, and incredibly self-centered.
Hansel: I totally agree with you. But how do you feel about male models?
Maury Ballstein: Mugatu is so hot right now he could take a crap, wrap it in tinfoil, put a couple fish hooks on it and sell it to Queen Elizabeth as earrings.
Bonus: A Zoolander sequel is reportedly in the works.
