Plum Sykes

  • ... sometimes gossip is by far the most reliable source of information about yourself and all your friends, especially in Manhattan. I always say why trust myself when gossip can tell moi the real truth about moi?

  • [On a friend who was seeing a psychiatrist:] Without her issues, she said, 'I'd be a personality-free zone.'

  • Every week Julie's therapist tells her she'll be happier if she's more selfish, not less. Judging by most people's behavior, everyone's therapist in New York must be saying this.

  • Julie thinks a stay at the Ritz Hotel, Paris, can cure all mental illnesses ... Julie had a point. I mean, even in the depths of romantic woe I could see the appeal of suffering an ultrasophisticated collapse in Paris with lots of shops close by. I'd much rather have one there than somewhere deadly like the psychiatric department of the Beth Israel Medical Center, where there are no good boutiques as far as I know.
