hyperbole: An IKEA-like glass of water with a flower in it. (Default)
Last night I watched the first episode of BBC's The Paradise, which is based on the Émile Zola novel I believe is called La bonheur des dames. It's about a Victorian (?) department store in London, before department stores were a Thing, and about a young country woman's rise to power there. Or so I think; I'd like to watch the series unspoiled so I haven't looked it up properly.

I thought it was a pretty, sweet and entertaining show until this one line towards the end of the episode cemented my interest. The female protagonist is being teased by a colleague-friend for looking at the store owner like she's fallen for him (as "all the sales girls do" according to this colleague). Her reply is exciting:

I don't want to marry him. I want to be him!


I do hope this goes somewhere good!
