Quotes

Miriam 'Midge' Maisel: My life completely fell apart today. Did I mention my husband left me? Okay, did I mention that he left me for his secretary? She's 21 and dumb as a brillo pad. And I'm not naive, I know that men like stupid girls, right?
Guy with Blonde: Uh...
Miriam 'Midge' Maisel: But I thought Joel wanted more than stupid, I thought he wanted spontaneity and wit. I thought he wanted to be challenged, you know what I mean?
Blonde in Front Row: Uh...
Miriam 'Midge' Maisel: You two are gonna be together forever.
