25 Times Female Characters in TV Shows Said Exactly What We’re Thinking

By: Rawan Khalil

Here are women giving us a piece of their mind and being way too god damn relatable, real, and funny. You might end up looking at your screen screaming “mood”, rolling your eyes or having some food for thought. I, of course sneaked in Rachel, Phoebe and Monica- the original trio.

Here are 25 women from TV + one from a film 

#1 Jen from Dead To Me

After her son told her she was overreacting: 

“Don’t ever tell a woman that she is overreacting because most of the time women are underreacting. This is my reaction which means that I am reacting perfectly.” 

#2 also Jen from Dead To Me

After her son said his ex-girlfriend is just crazy:

“She’s not crazy. You treated her like shit so she was driven crazy.” 

#3 Avis from Hollywood 

After being told that she’s making decisions because it’s too emotional for her:

“Oh, a woman makes a decision and suddenly she’s irrational.” 

#4 Olivia from Sex Education 

“Why are men so obsessed with getting their dicks out?”

#5 Dr Callie Torres from Grey’s Anatomy 

“You didn’t love her. You didn’t want to be alone. Or maybe, maybe she was good for your ego. Or maybe she made you feel better about your miserable life. But you didn’t love. Because you don’t destroy the person that you love.” 

#6 Ruth Wilder from GLOW 

“Sometimes you have to trick yourself into having a good time. Just pretend you’re having the best time in the world, and then maybe you will.”

#7 Kat Stratford from Ten Things I hate

“I want you to trust me to make my own choices… and I want you to stop trying to control my life just because you can’t control yours!”

# 8 Midge from The Marvelous Mrs Maisel 

“Why do women have to pretend to be something they’re not? Why do we have to pretend to be stupid when we’re not stupid? Why do we have to pretend to be helpless when we’re not helpless? Why do we have to pretend to be sorry when we have nothing to be sorry about? Why do we have to pretend we’re not hungry when we’re hungry?”

#9 Midge Maisel from The Marvelous Maisel

“If women don’t realize what’s going on in the world, they can’t step in and fix it. Because they WILL fix it. And accessorize it!”
