Netflix Tv Shows Quotes Galore: The Queen’s Gambit


I recently watched a show called The Queen’s Gambit, let me just tell you, it’s freaking uh-may-zing. It’s so great that your girl is dedicating a whole blog post just for the quotes from that show.

I don’t think it’s an over-exaggeration to say that The Queen’s Gambit might be hands down one of the best Netflix series I have ever watched to date, and I have shifted through many. The show was just absolutely freaking brilliant. Not to mention, Anya Taylor Joy was so gorgeous being a redhead. Ugh. I can seriously keep going on about how amazing the show is. Instead of boring you to tears, why don’t we just dive straight into some of my favorite memorable quotes from The Queen’s Gambit?


Ps. If you haven’t watched it yet, or are not sure if you should, definitely give it a try. Your girl isn’t asking for much, not even a whole episode. Just give it 30 minutes, if you’re not hooked by then you can drop it. *wink*






For a time, I was all you had. And for a time, you was all I had. We weren’t orphans. Not as long as we had each other.

Mr. Ganz told me that I beat them all in an hour and 20 minutes. It felt good. I’ve never won anything before.

“Miss Harmon, what would you say to those in the Chess Federation, who accuse you to be too glamorous to be a serious chess player?”



“I would say that it’s much easier to play chess without the burden of an Adam’s apple.”





Chess isn’t always competitive. Chess can also be… beautiful. It was the board I noticed first. It’s an entire world of just 64 squares. I feel safe in it. I can control it. I can dominate it. And it’s predictable, so if I get hurt, I only have myself to blame.





The more I looked, the worse it all became. It caught me completely off-guard. It was brutal. It’s the kind of thing I did to other people.


“I don’t even know if I’m good enough.”


“You’re the best there is. You beat me.”

With some people, chess is a pastime. With others, it is a compulsion, even an addiction. And every now and then, a person comes along for whom it is a birthright. Now and then, a small boy appears and dazzles us with his precocity, at what may be the world’s most difficult game.


But what if that boy were a girl? A young, unsmiling girl, with brown eyes, red hair, and a dark blue dress? Into the male-dominated world of the nation’s top chess tournaments, strolls a teenage girl with bright, intense eyes, from Fairfield High School in Lexington, Kentucky. She is quiet, well-mannered, and out for blood. Beth Harmon.





Dear Mr. Shaibel,


There’s a chess tournament here with a first prize of 100 dollars, and second prize of 50 dollars. It costs five dollars to enter and I don’t have that. If you’ll send me the money, I’ll pay you back ten dollars. If I win any prize at all. 




She’s an orphan. A survivor. She’s like us––losing is not an option for her. Otherwise, what would her life be?

Girls do not play chess. 


It’s other people you got to worry about. Other people. They’ll tell you what to do, how to feel. Before you know it…you’re pouring your life out in search of something other people told you to go look for. 


I don’t know why my body is so intent on sabotaging my brain. My brain is perfectly capable of sabotaging itself. 


“To unrequited love. And to stupid men.”

The strongest person is the person who isn’t scared to be alone.





Men are gonna come along and wanna teach you things. Doesn’t make them any smarter. You just let them blow by, and you go on ahead and do just what in the hell you feel like.





“And let’s look at where you’re at, which after being here for all of five minutes––looks like it’s at the bottom of a fucking hole. And it’s lookin’ a lot like you dug it yourself. My advice? Stop digging.”


I’m not your guardian angel. I’m not here to save you. Hell, I can barely save me. I’m here because you need me to be here. That’s what family does. That’s what we are.

“What you gonna do at night?”



“I’m gonna stay awake as long as I can, reading my book, learning the Sicilian Defense. There7s 57 pages about it in the book, with 170 lines stemming from P to QB4. I’m gonna memorize them and play through them all in my mind.”



“Poor mind.”


Did you bite off more than you can chew?





“What about Russia?”



“The Soviets are murder. They eat Americans for breakfast there. I don’t think there’s an American with a player against them for 20 years. It’s like ballet. They pay people to play chess. ”




Come on, you ugly piece of trash. You can beat that…fucker.





I’m not afraid of him.

I don’t suppose there’s anyone you’re afraid of.





You destroy everyone you play. 



queen's gambit quotes



Let’s play.
