1. This powerful Lady Danbury mic drop moment

“When I was a girl, some centuries ago, I was afraid even of my own reflection. I entered a room and attempted to dissolve into the shadows.

But there is only so long one in a position such as ours can hide.

I knew I would have to step into the light someday, and I could not very well be frightened. So, instead, I made myself frightening.

I sharpened my wit, my wardrobe, and my eye, and I made myself the most terrifying creature in any room I entered.”Season 1, Episode 2 “Shock and Delight”

2. This very quotable line that we’ll be using all the time

“Lady Danbury: Would it pain you to wear some color, Your Grace? The London season is already terribly monotonous as it is. Must your wardrobe do the same?

Lady Danbury: Certainly not mine. Take my arm, before you make us late.” Season 1, Episode 2 “Shock and Delight”

6. That time she put Simon’s dad in his place

7. This Lady Danbury line that shows her diabolical sense of humor

8. This badass moment when she put Simon in his place

“If you have designs upon the girl and wish to marry her, then Friedrich can disappear, for all I care, and become a delicious dinner party anecdote. But if you are merely dallying with her, and if she loses her chance of such an extraordinary match, simply because she is too wrapped up in your charms… well, then… she would be a fool, and I would never forgive you your carelessness.” Season 1, Episode 3 “Art of the Swoon”

9. This quotable gem that can be applied to many social situations

I understand that you believe such subjects as love and devotion, affection and attachment, you find it all trite and frivolous. But have you any idea those very things are precisely what have allowed a new day to begin to dawn in this society?

Look at our queen. Look at our king. Look at their marriage. Look at everything it is doing for us, allowing us to become.
