Quotes Containing woo:
''It''s a problem being beautiful. It''s only the handsome men that ask us out because they''re the only ones who think they have a chance. And handsome men are dolts. Life is unfair to us. At some point we have to face the certain reality. Despite all the good the world seems to offer, true happiness can only be found in one thing ... shopping.'' Ling Woo (Lucy Liu) in Ally McBeal (1997)
