The grannies were very upset with Tyler Perry when he gave Kim Kardashian a supporting role in his new film Temptation, but as an image-obsessed clotheshorse whose primary concern is snagging a rich man, you can't say Kardashian was cast against type. The real surprise is that the 32-year-old reality star has quite a bit of dialogue to deliver (over 50 lines worth!) in this film, though some of it — in particular, the flatly mumbled line, "Push me out of a window, why don't you?" — seems designed to provoke chuckles. Here, then, are all of Kardashian's lines in the movie, taken wildly out of context. Read them in Kim K's voice: a vaguely disapproving murmur with random words emphasized so suddenly it's as though she were jolted to life by an unexpected electric shock.

  • "Good morning. Your 8 a.m. is on his way up."
  • "Ugh, look at those shoes."
  • "I wasn't talking about hers, I was talking about yours. They look like orthopedic shoes."
  • "Judith, we've been going over this for weeks. Look around this office, what do you see?"
  • "Look at me, Judith. What you should see is people in this office care about what they look like. UNlike you."
  • "We have over a billion dollars walking in and out of these offices looking for love, and we have a standard to uphold. And this is not our standard!"
  • "Yes, you do."
  • "Yeah, you do."
  • "A degree?"
  • "A degree on the wall, without labels on your back, is nothing."
  • "Where are you from, new girl?"
  • "Where the hell is that?"
  • "The South. That explains it. You grew up below the Mason-Dixon."
  • "And you really need an iron to that skirt."
  • "Say no more. That … that blouse. It's telling it all."
  • "What's wrong with my dress? You don't breathe in Hervé."
  • "Oh my God."
  • "You're killing me. You don't know who that is? The third largest social media inventor since Zuckerberg? ClassMeet? What planet are you from?"
  • "She is no madam. You need to bite your tongue. She's a matchmaker, and she's very good at her job." 
  • "Stay right there, I know she was talkin' to me."
  • "Okay!"
  • [whispered] "Bye. Nice to meet you."
  • "Do I have any calls?"
  • "Flowers!"
  • "I didn't know that the 15th was your birthday. Happy birthday, here you go."
  • "You are so excited about him. That is great."
  • "Did you try something new? With your hair?"
  • "Unfortunately, I do. Is your fashion icon, like, 'Delta stewardess'? That's what you look like."
  • "Ugh! Is this wool? It's making me itch."
  • "A blend of what?"
  • "That WAS a compliment."
  • "He … he's on his way up. C'mon. We … we gotta go."
  • "No, Harley. Come on, we really gotta go."
  • "Watch my manicure!"
  • "I'm trying to be your friend here, Judith. When people look at you, it reflects bad on me. They don't think you have a mirror or a friend, and they know we're friends! My friends don't look like this! They look like [gestures to self] THIS."
  • "That's not makeup. That's makedown."
  • "Oh. My. God! You're wearing flats?"
  • "Push me out of the window, why don't you?"
  • "H-Harley's here. C'mon, we gotta go. Enough with the coffee. No coffee break. Nope, nope. We gotta go."
  • "Hi Harley!"
  • "What? We're back to this again? Did you not have a good birthday or something."
  • "He forgot? I thought he sent you flowers yesterday."
  • "You are forgettable. Honey. You have to make a man remember you. I've tried to give you my assistance, but you don't want it. So, get out."
  • "Win what?"
  • "Are you kidding. Oh my … thank you. I have been dying to get my hands on this hair. C'mon, c'mon."
  • "Look. Look at the bag, the shoes, the purses, everything. I dream of this room! Look at this."
  • "This is the place that Janice sends the girls that she's not happy with. Where, you know, she sets them up. So, this is what I call Couture Heaven." 
  • "All right, let's get started. I have so much to do to you and so little time."
  • "What do you think of this?"
  • "One that's never been on your back. It's called 'expensive.'"
  • "Wait a minute … those are NOT my hand-me-downs."
  • "Oh my God. You caught on. Wait a minute, wait! You caught on. Let me see. I am so proud."
  • "This is my finest moment in life."
