The Situation: After Bridget Jones (Renee Zellweger) enters a romantic relationship with her seedy boss Daniel Cleaver (Hugh Grant), she finds herself deeply in love. Bliss is interrupted when Daniel not only cheats on her, but proposed marriage to another woman. The indignation of it all causes Bridget to deliver one of cinema’s most memorable resignation/breakup speeches.
Quote: “If staying here means working within ten yards of you, frankly, I'd rather have a job wiping Saddam Hussein's arse.” -- Bridget Jones (Renee Zellweger)
Why It Works: The scene echoes many real-life office romances that have gone bad. Bridget embodies the clever, self-assured woman we all want to be in moments like these.
