The stars have aligned—Mean Girls day, Oct. 3, landed on a Wednesday. You know what that means? Yup, Team Preen is wearing pink because The Plastics are our fashion icons just for today.
It’s been 14 years since Mean Girls premiered but until now, we’re still seeing references being made. Heck, there’s even an ongoing Broadway show. So before this day ends, it’s only right to refresh our Mean Girls vocabulary by looking back on the lines that are still relevant and relatable today. Oh, and don’t forget to watch the movie to fully celebrate!
“You can’t just ask someone why they’re white!”
Also applicable to people questioning why Kelsey Merritt doesn’t look Filipino enough because of her half-American genes. Gretchen Wieners spoke the truth, y’all.
“Get in, loser. We’re going shopping.”
There’s always that one person in our lives who might need a shopping intervention. If not, it’s probably you.
“That was so fetch!”
“Stop making ‘fetch’ happen!”
Also, same, Regina.
“I’m not a regular mom, I’m a cool mom.”
We all aspire to be Amy Poehler when we become moms.
“Can I get you guys anything? Some snacks? A condom? Let me know!”
See? So progressive.
“It was my parents’ room, but I made them trade me.”
Hm, good trade. Also, did anyone ever buy that mansion? Because we want to save up for it.
“You go, Glen Coco!”
To our friends: You’re all Glen Cocos in our eyes.
“None for you, Gretchen Wieners.”
Translation: You’re not getting a reply from me, creep.
“It’s like I have ESPN or something.”
A great answer to “What channels do you have on your TV?”
“My breasts can always tell when it’s going to rain.”
Admit it, you wanted Karen Smith’s weather-detecting breasts too.
“Step away from the underage girls!”
“She doesn’t even go here!”
Says the brain when you go to an unfamiliar place, in a city far from where you live, and your friend is hella late.
“Raise your hand if you have ever been personally victimized by Regina George.”[Raises hand at home]
“The limit does not exist.”
Man, we wish we could tell that to our savings account.
