Full of rapid exchanges and hilarious dating scenarios, it's hard not to enjoy the quotes from this movie. So indulge your funny bone and take in some “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days” quotes.

  1. Jeannie Ashcroft: [reading] “‘And only then will the people of Tajikistan know true and lasting peace.’ Andie, it's brilliant. It's really moving. But it's never going to appear in Composure Magazine.”  Despite presenting a stellar piece of journalism to her prospective boss, writer Andie is quickly shut down, told instead to take on fluff pieces for the women’s magazine. As Andie squelches her true self in order to please her boss, she finds herself quickly becoming disillusioned with her craft.

  2. Andie: “Unattached?” Ben: “Currently.” Andie: “Likewise.” Ben: “Surprising.” Andie: “Psycho?” Ben: “Rarely, Interested?” Andie: “Perhaps.” Ben: “Hungry?” Andie: “Starving.” Ben: “Leaving?” Andie: “Now?”  This quick exchange between writer Andie and playboy Ben when they first meet sets up the film and prepares audiences for the speedy tête-à-têtes that appear throughout the film.  

  3. Ben: [to himself, on his balcony, waving goodbye to Andie] “You're already falling in love with me.”  Andie : “I'm gonna make you wish you were dead.”  In this quote, both individuals think that they’re ahead of their own personal game. Andie is making all the wrong moves in the relationship and writing about it in a magazine column and Ben is just trying make her fall in love with him, both with a deadline of 10 days,  

  4. Ben: “You see, the key to this game is being able to read people.”  Playboy Ben explains his strategy to his friends in this quote, eventually deciding to prove that he can make any woman fall truly in love with him in 10 days.  

  5. Andie: “Our love fern! You let it die!” Ben: “No, honey, it's just sleeping.”  As Andie dates Ben, she keeps bringing more and more ridiculous elements into the relationship. This quote focuses on one of the more absurd ones--a love fern she gives to Ben to commemorate their relationship. Needless to say, when Ben lets it die, things don’t go so well.    

  6. Ben: “You can't name my member... Princess Sophia.”  Andie : “Yes, I can!” Ben: “If you are gonna name my. . .member, you have to name it something hyper masculine. Something like Spike, or Butch, or Krull the Warrior King!”  Andie continues to mess things up with Ben, even effectively emasculating him when she nicknames his member “Princess Sophia.” In this quote, Ben can only retaliate as best he can, but even so, the moniker shakes his ego considerably.    

  7. Ben: “Guys, a woman's purse, alright, it's her secret source of power. Alright? There are many dark and dangerous things in there, that we, the male species, should know nothing about.”  A great quote simply because of the nod to the fact that most men are indeed wary of women’s purses.  

  8. Andie: “I love you Binky. . .but I don't have to like you right now.” This quote has undoubtedly been uttered an ungodly amount of times by couples everywhere, which is why it must be included in such a list.  

  9. Andie: “You're beautiful. The game, the whole thing. It's just... I wish I ate meat. Mary had a little lamb, little lamb. You have to take it away before I gag.”  In an attempt to push Ben over the edge, Andie waits until he has prepared a beautiful and set before her to pretend that she can’t eat meat and that the act of cooking it disgusts her.  

  10. Ben: “You wanted to lose a guy in 10 days, congratulations you did it. You just lost him.” Andie: “No, I didn't, Ben, because you can't lose something you never had!”  After both of them discover that they were trying to play the other, Andie and Ben turn on each other, frustrated with the guilt of their actions and the fact that they weren’t truly in control of their respective scenarios.
