Bu sabah genelde yaptığım gibi en sevdiğim karakter olan Karen Walker sahnelerini izlerken kendisini blogumda da anlatmam gerektiğini düşündüm. 1998 yılında yayımlanmaya başlayan Will&Grace dizisindeki bu mükemmel karakter, Karen Walker adlı tasarımcıdan yola çıkılarak yaratılmış. Karen her zaman sarhoş, duygularını asla belli etmeyen, zengin, görgüsüz, insanların giyimi ve ilişkileri üzerine saçma sapan yorumlar yapan, tiz sesiyle dikkat çeken, ukala, kendinden başka birşeyi umursamayan komik ötesi bir insan. Bu saydığım özelliklerin son zamanlarda daha yeni yeni dizilerde kullanıldığını düşünürsek Karen Walker'da biraz queen beelik olduğunu düşünüyorum. Kesinlikle idolüm diyebilirim :D
Karen'dan bazı alıntılar bulup onları yazmak istedim buraya ki neden bu kadar sevdiğimi anlamanıza yardımcı olsunlar. Tabi diğer ana karakterlerle ilgili kısa bilgiler de vermem gerek: Grace; mimar, Karen kadar olmasa da mimikleri baya eğleneceli. Will; gay, Gracele yıllardır arkadaşlar, aynı evde yaşıyorlar. Jack; gay ötesi, Will'in arkadaşı ama Karenla tanıştıktan sonra onunla çok daha fazla vakit geçiriyor. Karen; mükemmel, kusursuz, komik ve zengin olmasına rağmen sırf vakit geçirmek için Grace'in yanında asistan olarak çalışıyor. Ama asla telefonlara bakmıyor, faks ve bilgisayar kullanmayı bilmiyor ve işe zamanında gelmiyor. Bir de Rosario var tabi. İkinci favori karakterim. Karen'ın Meksikalı kaçak hizmetçisi. Karenla kedi köpek gibi kavga ederler ve laf sokarlar. Ama birbirlerini bu yüzden seviyorlar :D Stan de Karen'ın parası için evlendiği kocası.
*Karen: Hey I have feelilngs too you know.....
[Jack and Karen both break out laughing]
Karen: Dammit, I was trying to keep a straight face.
*Rosario: Oh, Miss Karen, you love those shoes like your own husband
Karen: Bite your tongue! Husbands come and go but the Chanel slingback is forever!
*A begger: Excuse me, you must get this all the time. Are you Mary Todd Lincoln?
Karen: No. And you must get this all the time. Could you take one giant step back?
*Will: That's terrific. Karen, it's up to you.
Karen: Oh! Honey, you sound just like Stan in bed!
*That's your laugh? Sounds like a squirrel orgy.
Rosario: Miss Karen? We have a little visitor.
Karen: Oh, for God's sake, I'm not your mother. You know where the tampons are!
Rosairo: It's your stepdaughter Olivia, you ghost of Christmas passed-out.
*[Karen exits the elevator, reading her book intently, as she runs into Will leaving his apartment, carrying a bag of garbage]
Karen: Hey, Will. Hey, Grace.
Will: Karen... this isn't Grace. This is a bag of garbage.
Karen: Oh, silly me. How could I make that mistake... twice.
*[to a waiter] Hey apron. Who told you you could make eye contact?
*You know I had a dream once. To be rich and beautiful and have a great body. Oh look, my dream came true.
*I can't have sex with Stan with the lights on. How am I supposed to have a conjugal if I have to watch the con jiggle?
*Honey, I could suck the alcohol out of a deodorant stick.
*Well, I feel a little bit uncomfortable. All of these gay eyes on me. Judging me. Undressing me. Then dressing me up again in a different outfit.
*OK, rule number one. Unless you're served in a frosted glass, never come within four feet of my lips!
*Oh look flowers. Or as i like to call them, poor people's jewerly.
*Beverley Leslie: Well well well, if it isnt' Karen Walker. How nice to see you....
Karen: Yeah, if you were sitting on several phone books, it would be nice to see you too.
*Good Lord. I can't believe I'm at a public pool. Why doesn't somebody just pee directly on me?
*(to Jack) Honey you're gayer than a clutch purse on Tony Night. You're like a big gay fruit, falling out of a gay tree, and you hit every gay branch on the way down, and then you landed on a gay guy....and you did him.
*I love errands. They’re like mini adventures for the undesirables.
*Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! This is a place of business! Were trying to get some work done in here and we don't need you just bargin...Okay, Im saying it and I don't even buy it. (starts laughing)
*Gosh, I just love gambling here in Vegas. Sure, I may lose $100,000 but the drinks are free so it evens out!
*[to Val, in reference to Grace's designing ability] This woman has more talent in her little-boy breasts than you have in your whole body.
*Karen: So that miniature pony offered you all his money just to take a few rides on him and you said no?
Jack: But I don't like him.
Karen: Since when is that a problem?
Jack: Well played. [pause] I can't do it.
Karen: Oh you'll do it. You'll do it the same way any self-respecting woman does. Get on your back, point your heels to Jesus and think of handbags.
*Grace: Your cook's name is "Cook"?
Karen: No Grace, he has a name! I just don't remember it. No wait a minute, it'll come to me, it'll come to me. "Where are my damn eggs... Paul!" Paul. Oh god, Paul is dead? Now who the hell is going to cook for us?!
Will: I guess this concludes the mourning period.
*Karen: [Answering the phone] Grace Adler Designs.
Will: [Into the phone] Hi, Karen.
Karen: Grace, the reason you're not in a relationship is on line one.
*Karen: Honey, you know, whenever I get stressed out, I always like to...
Grace: You always like to what?
Karen: Gosh, I don't think I've ever been stressed out. I mean, why would I be? I got practically no responsibilities, my job's a breeze, and I got a killer rack! Good morning! Ha ha ha ha! Oh... Whoo!
*Jack: [Karen is at her desk filing her nails as Jack enters] Ladies and gentlemen, please put your hands together for Just Jack! [singing] Touch me in the mornin' ...
Karen: Honey, I'm busy. Touch yourself.
*Smitty, whats it all about? Oh wait, I dont give a crap! (starts laughing)
*Grace, the bitch we hate is on line one!
*It's not something you can just run away from like a hotel bill or a crying baby..
