Cat Grant's Lines Are Fun!


Checked out DC and Warner Bros. and Netflix's 'Supergirl'. Not quite keen to follow through the way I did for Marvel and Netflix's 'Daredevil''Jessica Jones' and 'Luke Cage'. But I still ended up fast-forwarding through some of the 'Supergirl' episodes. The bits where I paused to watch are the scenes of Calista Flockhart as Cat Grant. Cat Grant still reminds me of Ally McBeal, not so much of her other characters Kitty Walker or Ellen Kelly-O'Rourke. The same upward twitches at the mouth, the same stares. Heh. Cat Grant is certainly less neurotic than Ally McBeal. Heh.

Couldn't help grinning at these lines in one scene between Cat Grant and Lucy Lane in S1Ep10. All good for a girl's career and, yeah, I've recently been guilty of wearing Lululemon tights to the office. In black of course, that's the easiest color to get away with under a blazer and heels. I don't drive and refuse to lug around a bag of clothes to change into after pilates. Just a clean blouse works.

Cat Grant: A few weeks ago you were briefing the Joint Chiefs of Staff. And now you're available to meet me on a day's notice wearing a glorified pair of yoga pants. 
Lucy Lane: Oh, they're Balenciaga... 
Cat Grant: They're yoga pants.

Said scene in S1E10. But can't quite see Lucy Lane's 'yoga pants' under her hands.

For context, Cat Grant is offering a job to Lucy Lane as General Counsel in CatCo Worldwide Media. It's a pseudo interview that Lucy Lane isn't even aware that she's participating in. After those opening lines and polite talk, Cat Grant continues,

Now, look, I'm not immune to the allure of James Olsen wearing a shirt that is unbuttoned one too many. But a woman with brains who gives up everything for love inevitably finds herself staring into an existential abyss that men, babies and cardio bars simply cannot fill. 
You are a smart and accomplished woman who needs to work, or you will lose your confidence, your sense of identity, and most importantly, your mind.

Hear, hear.
