Gallagher Girls Revisited: In Quotes

From I’d Tell You I Love You, But Then I’d Have to Kill You to United We Spy

Can you believe that United We Spy finally came out last month? I remember patiently waiting okay not so patiently waiting by my mailbox September 17th and realizing This is the last time I will ever get to say that I’m waiting for the new Gallagher Girl book. This will be the last “first’ time hearing from Cammie again. But, hey, we’re Gallagher Girls, right? We’re not going to sit around and mourn the series, we’re going to do what a Gallagher Girl would do and go kick some butt while donning awesome cover stories celebrate the end of the series. Here’s a look back on my favorite quotes about each Gallagher Girl (and a certain Blackthorne Boy) and the very first words–and the last words–they spoke to us. (Caution: This post does contain some quotes from United We Spy. Before each quote, I have added a white banner/header with the topic, so that you may skip over that section if you so choose.)

Cammie Morgan

Favorite Quote

“I know what goes bump in the night. and I know how to fight it…I know who will be beside me, and as every good spy know–sometimes that’s enough.”

First Line

“I suppose a lot of teenage girls feel invisible sometimes, like they just disappear.”

Last Line

“Let’s go.”

Rebecca “Bex” Baxter

Favorite Quote

“Most little girls in England grow up wanting to marry a prince. Bex grew up wanting to kick James Bond’s butt and assume his double-0 ranking.”

First Line

“Trouble, ladies?”

Last Line

“Liz!”

Macy McHenry

Favorite Quote

“And there’s something I want to say,” Macy went on, even stronger now, “There’s nothing we can’t do if we stick together. There’s nothing we can’t overcome if we try. I learned that from the people who love me. The people who know…the real me.” This time i knew Macy was looking straight at us.

Beside me, I heard Bex whisper, “That’s our girl.”

First Line

“Yeah, they make great glue.”

Last Line

“We have to go.”

Elizabeth “Liz” Sutton

Favorite Quote

“What is a Gallagher Girl? She’s a genius, a scientist, a heroine, a spy… a Gallagher Girl is whatever she wants to be.”

First Line

“Oh Cammie…come out, come out, wherever you are…”

Last Line

“And most of all, she is my sister.”

Zachary “Zach” Goode

Favorite Quote

Basically Anything With the Words “Gallagher Girl” in It.

First Line (As Himself, Not His Cover)

“Hi again, Gallagher Girl.”

Last Line

“[On being asked if him and Cammie have time for a mission for the CIA] What do you say, Gallagher Girl? Do you?”

And one of my favorites:

The Quote In Which Cammie Basically Sums Up the Entire GG Series

“[On what happened with Josh] We were really different, I guess. And then I met Zach, and a bunch of terrorists started trying to kidnap me, and I got too busy for a boyfriend.”

    I haven’t read this series yet, but I did read the first two Heist Society books (loved em). Cool collection of quotes. Now this series is all done, I might have a readathon – I hate cliff hangers! :-) Cool post honey, thanks for sharing.

    • I really enjoyed her Heist books too, and I agree, I hate cliffhangers and often start book series once they’ve all come out myself. :) Thank you!

      • Annie says:

        Good to know I’m not alone! Abbi Glines is the worst for that, but I can’t resist preordering her books, lol. :-)

      • You’re definitely not alone! I just started the Divergent trilogy since the last book is coming out next week (everyone’s been telling me to read the series for a while now) and I read the Hunger Games after all the books were already out! :) The GG series wait was hard though–I think it took 7 years for the series to be completed! I found out about it right when the 3rd book was coming out. :)

      • Annie says:

        I was like that with Vampire Academy, I think the first 4 books were out, but then I had to wait… It was painful. I hope the movie adaption’s even 1/2 as good as the first book! :-)

  2. Sunny says:

    Alice, I adore this post. I love all the quotes you picked! And amen to any quote that has “Gallagher Girl” in it by Zach. I don’t know where to even to begin with all the quotes. They’re all just amazing.

    • Thank you! :) I had such a hard time trying to pick the quotes, I kept going “I’ll use this one! No, no, THAT one. Ooh, or this one…” I had to edit this post quite a bit too, it was originally really long.

  3. I had never heard of this series till here lately..hmm I might have to check it out. :)

  4. I love this series so much! I still haven’t read the last book yet, mainly because I don’t want it to end, but it sounds amazing. I’m off to take the Gallagher Girl quiz :)

  5. Olivia says:

    All the quotes in your post were awesome! I love Gallagher girls, they are my all-time favorite books. They have so many great quotes.
    Two in particular pop into my head, though. Now, i’m no sure if these are my favorite, because it’s hard to say, but, they might be. I REALLY like these a lot. SO here is a quote from Joe Solomon and one from Abby…
    “Because death is the only thing that could have ever kept him from you.” That one is from Solomon, I’ve always loved that quote.
    Here is one of my newly-discovered favorites from United We Spy.
    “Step away from the psychopath!” That is Abby, I seriously LOVE this quote. It’s just so hilarious. Every time I read it, I think. ‘Abby is awesome!’
    Now, I could go on and on… because, seriously I have SO MANY quotes from Gallagher Girls that I love. Some because they make you go awwww… (Like the first one) and some because they make you laugh (Like the second one) And since you didn’t have any quotes from Abby or Solomon, I thought i’d say my favorites from them. Oh! I almost forgot Townsend. He might not say much, but when he does, it’s priceless. Here is another one of my favorite quotes, this time from Townsend. “With all due respect to the good doctor, I highly suspect that he’s a moron.” Ahhh… I love Townsend. :)

    Now that i’m done with the quotes, my favorite Gallagher Girl is Cammie, my favorite book in the series is….wow…this is really tough. I LOVE all of them, but i’d have to say either Out Of Sight, Out Of Time or United We Spy. UWS was awesome. I took the quiz and got Cammie. :)

  6. I haven’t read the last book yet – I’m kind of scared to, plus I don’t have it! Hopefully I didn’t spoil myself with these quotes (although I don’t think I did). I think the James Bond quote about Bex is my favorite! :)

  7. Bella says:

    This is such a good series! Really good quote picks; you have me thinking about some of my favorites now too :)

  8. Oh, I love this post! I’ve had the book since the day it came out but I’ve been postponing read it since I don’t want it to be over! I may reread the whole series first…
