Mean Girls in my opinion is the most quotable movie in the history of cinema. Ok, so I’m being a little dramatic. But if I were a judge I’d let the argument stand. Maybe I’m just biased but because of the outstanding writing, Mean Girls remains a classic fourteen years later.
“I’m Sorry I Laughed At You That Time You Got Diarrhea”
At a Barnes & Noble. You would think as air-headed and shallow as Gretchen Wieners and Karen Smith are they wouldn’t be caught dead in a bookstore. But they were there, and boy did Gretchen get explosive diarrhea.
“My Breasts Can Always Tell When It’s Gonna Rain, Well They Can Tell When It’s Raining”
You know how old people say their joints ache when the weather changes? Well I guess it’s like that for Karen…but with her breasts.
“This Is The Fertility Vase Of The Ndebele Tribe, Does That Mean Anything To You?”
Being that Cady’s parent’s spent some time in Africa they were given gifts from various tribes, and a fertility vase was one of them. There’s nothing particularly funny about this line. However, for some reason back in middle school in 2004, my friend and I thought this was one of the most hilarious lines in the movie.
The looks Cady got from the black kids she, for whatever reason, assumed were African as well, after yelling an African salutation to them was priceless.
“She Doesn’t Even Go Here!”
This iconic line by Damian that outed the poor girl pouring out her feelings in the gym.
“Ok, Go Home”
Ms. Norbury’s response to the poor girl pouring out her feelings when she learned she, in fact, didn’t even go there.
“Your Mom’s Chest Hair!”
Janis’s response to a dumb jock insulting her. Two words: Comeback Queen.
“I Can’t Help It If I’ve Got A Heavy Flow And A Wide Set Vagina”
No wonder Regina George punched her in the face that one time.
This bougie lady telling Regina George to go to a cheaper department store was comedy gold. But it served Regina right, she was a jerk to everybody.
“I’m From Michigan”
When Ms. Norbury assumed the only black girl from class was from Africa just like Cady assumed the group of students understood “jambo.”
“See, This Is The Color I Want”
Yeah Damian, just randomly grab the new-to-America student just to reference her hair color, because you know, people don’t have boundaries.
“She’s A Life Ruiner, She Ruins People’s Lives”
Maybe it’s just me but I just find it so funny how redundant this line is, and the fact that Janis said it with a such a stern face.
“I Was Half A Virgin When I Met Him”
What in the name of all that is holy is “half a virgin”? If it is what I think it is, I can’t write it in this article.
“I Don’t Hate You Because You’re Fat, You’re Fat Because I Hate You”
Ok, clearly this chick is the worst friend in the world. Apparently her being a mean girl to her friend made her gain weight?
“I Have A Nephew Named Anferny”
This line is just so random and stupid it’s probably the funniest line in the whole movie.
“They’ve Gone Wild! The Girls Have Gone Wild”
For the twenty-five and up readers you know what’s funny about this line. For the younger readers, think of it as an adult inside joke.
“Oh Hell No! I Did Not Leave The Southside For This!”
The fact that he compares Southside Chicago to these high school girls fighting is hilarious.
“Coach Carr, Step Away From The Underage Girls”
Let’s face it, Coach Carr was a straight up pervert, who was hooking up with Trang Pak in the projection room above the auditorium.
“Don’t Have Sex Because You Will Get Pregnant And Die”
He Also Knew Nothing About Sex Education.
“And I Want My Pink Shirt Back!”
Guess Cady will have nothing to wear on Wednesdays anymore.
