Peaky Blinders: Lizzie’s 8 Best Quotes From The Final Season

Peaky Blinders: Lizzie's 8 Best Quotes From The Final Season

Just like all the women in Peaky Blinders, Lizzie made her mark by expressing her steadfast strength through a number of best quotes in season 6.

With the recent ending of its TV series but the prospect of a movie in the next few years, Peaky Blinders has given audiences a lot to think about with all the drama that happened and the excitement yet to come. Although season 6 brought a plethora of twists and turns, viewers were also treated to the core, gritty characters that they know and love.

One of those is, of course, Lizzie. As Tommy’s wife, she needed to be a headstrong woman that could stand her own ground, even when her gangster husband argued with her. Lizzie has proven time and again that she is more than just the wife of a renowned gangster, with her own mind and interesting personality. Out of that personality developed plenty of great quotes that were an asset to the show.

Tommy’s Arrival

“She’s All Better Tommy. You Came Back For Nothing. But I’m Glad You’re Back.”

Because of their gangster lifestyle, simplistic and straightforward love can get lost amongst the action and battles between the Shelbys and their rivals.

This is precisely what makes this quote stand out as one of the best. Tommy returned home because he was concerned for Ruby’s health and upon seeing him, Lizzie expressed her happiness at his arrival. It’s not gushy, nor overly loving, but the simplicity of it makes her feelings clear and is a welcome contrast to the usual dark storylines.

Easing Tension

“My Husband Is Very Sorry And He Is Calm Now.”

Whilst Lizzie is able to stand up for herself, her strengths also lie in calming situations that don’t require so much tension. Along with Tommy, they rush Ruby into hospital when she falls ill and upon arrival, Tommy loses his temper with the hospital staff.

Lizzie takes Tommy to one side to calm him down and apologizes on his behalf, knowing that the doctors and nurses weren’t deserving of Tommy’s behavior. The situation was extremely stressful for Lizzie as well, but she found it within herself to help steady Tommy’s emotions and follow up with one of her best quotes.

Knowing Her Worth

“I Am Company Director. I Will Join The Meeting As Well.”

The introduction of Diana Mitford brought a sly, wicked edge that only made her an undeniably unlikeable character. The antithesis of shy, Mitford wouldn’t take a backward step in any conversation she may have, but perhaps what she didn’t anticipate was the confidence Lizzie had.

When Tommy suggests he and Mosley have a meeting, Lizzie voices her wish to be a part of the meeting without hesitation. She could have easily left them to it, even if Diana had decided to go in. But she knows her worth enough to not feel the need to wait around for an invite to a meeting that she has every right to be a part of, making it a quote good enough to rival Ada’s most badass quotes from the last season.

Making Up For Tommy’s Absence

“I Gave Her Your Kiss Goodbye.”

Ruby’s illness escalated quickly and resulted in her passing, which was a horrendously painful experience for Lizzie and Tommy to endure. Unfortunately, Tommy wasn’t there at the time of her death, leaving Lizzie to initially go through it on her own.

Once Tommy eventually arrived at the hospital, Lizzie delivered the devastating news. Telling her husband that she gave Ruby a kiss goodbye from him stands as one of Lizzie’s best quotes (and as one of the best quotes from the final season of Peaky Blinders overall) because even through her pain, she was thoughtful enough to pass on what she knew Tommy would want. Lizzie provided a beautiful moment in a horrific time.

Home Truths

“Not A Normal Man, Your Brother.”

Marrying into a family can be a nerve-racking part of life, but to marry into a family as intense as the Shelby’s must be extremely trying. Lizzie seems to take her husband’s way of life in her stride, but there are times when she’s pushed to her limits, confessing to Ada that she needs a normal man to help navigate through a painful time with Ruby’s illness.

It may be a short quote, but it can be acknowledged as one of her best because she isn’t shying away from showing how she feels about Tommy in front of Ada. She unashamedly expressed her need for Tommy to be by her side and also confronted how she feels about Tommy’s behavior.

Beyond The Lies

“You’re Not So Good At Lying Anymore, Tommy! These Days The Truth Gets In Your Eyes.”

The nature of how the Peaky Blinders live their lives not only includes violence and fighting, but their words aren’t always truthful, whether to their enemies or even their family members.

After discovering Tommy had been with another woman, Lizzie admits that she can tell when he’s lying “these days.” As one of her best quotes (included in the final episode of Peaky Blinders) she (yet again) confronts Tommy’s downfalls, letting him know that she can see right through him. He may try to portray a tough guy that can put on a front, but Lizzie is able to read him better than that.

Life Without Polly

“No More Polly, No More Whiskey, No More Tommy.”

Not only is it one of Lizzie’s best quotes, but it is also one of the most memorable character quotes from season 6 of Peaky Blinders. After Polly passed away, Tommy gave up drinking alcohol, which was a heavy part of his life.

Lizzie noticed that the loss of Polly combined with a lack of liquor changed Tommy’s personality to the point that he’s no longer his usual self. It’s obvious to Lizzie why her husband is now the way he is and she is no longer willing to hide it from others.

Making Children Happy

“We Told Father Christmas About The Party. And He Has Brought You All Presents.”

Getting caught up in the constant rivalries between the Shelbys and other gangsters, or even the battles between family at home would make it seem like there’s hardly time for much else in their lives. But Ada and Lizzie still made every effort to give their children a wonderful Christmas.

What makes this quote so great is the fact that even though she’s stressed by Tommy’s behavior and whatever else may be happening amongst the Shelbys, Lizzie still manages to put on a brave face and make the children happy on an important day for them. No matter how hard life gets, being a mother comes first.
