The line when Blunt's character Emily is being mean to Anne Hathaway's character Andy (a fellow assistant) was inspired by a mother talking to her child in the supermarket.

In the film Blunt says, 'Yeah, I'm hearing this and I want to hear this,' while opening and closing her hand and as if to say 'be quiet'.

She took the line and made it her own in the film, helping bring her iconic mean on-screen character to life.
