Rejoice: Girls is back with its highly-anticipated season 4. To celebrate, ELLE celebrates the show's best ever quotes - so far.
Arguably one of the most famous Girls quotes, Hannah Horvath (played by Lena Dunham) makes a defensive plea to her parents to ensure they continue supporting her financially, all in order for her to realise her ‘potential’. We empathise. Haven’t we all felt, at some time, like we could be the voice of our generation? Sort of?
Another one of Hannah’s unwittingly self-centred proclamations, this time directed at her on/off boyfriend of the time, Adam. She hilariously and bluntly insists on a relationship with all the perks, minus the title and commitment.
We’ve all wished at some point or another that our hypothetical fairy-godmother would show up. Marnie succinctly expresses any outstanding anxiety anyone’s ever had about making general life decisions, or the direction and speed of their career and love life.
Who needs the weekends? According to Hannah, Wednesday nights are clearly the new optimum day of the week for partying hard. The ludicrousness of the statement itself, as well as the yellow netted vest she's wearing at the time, makes for pretty humorous watching.
We’ve all experienced the universal sensation of turning up to a social event, only to find that the person you’re meeting there is running late. Cue social anxiety and a conflicting emotion (anger/a sense of relief) when you finally see them arrive.
Girls returns on Sky Atlantic on 12 January.
