Clueless Turns 20!! Best lines from this classic film!

cluelessIn case you did not already know, I am a HUGE Clueless fan.  This 1995 classic film not only introduced to Cher, Dionne, and Ty (my imaginary friends and icons of my teenage years), but also it helped me to discover a new parts of myself…. my love for pop culture, fashion, and the southern california hollywood lifestyle.  I considered myself to be the black Cher and nobody could tell me otherwise.  It was after watching Clueless countless times that I began to sketch my own fashion designs, wear knee-high socks and wrap skirts weekly, paint my nails bright colors, and incorporate slang like “As If,” “What-Ever,” “Classic,” and “Sporadically” into my speech (to the chagrin of my proper parents).

So on its 20th Anniversary it is only write to repost an article from CNN Entertainment listing the Top 20 Classic lines from the movie.  My favorite lines are #2, 5, 8, 9, 15, and 16.  I must admit… I can recite the movie (dialogue, movements, scenes, and hand gestures) without even looking at it… AND IM NOT ASHAMED!!  Enjoy the witty banter and dialogue from the classic film!!  #PopStyle

Here’s a look at 20 of “Clueless’ ” funniest lines and exchanges, in no particular order.


Cher (to Dionne, who is wearing a flamboyant hat): “Been shopping with Dr. Seuss?” Dionne: “Well at least I wouldn’t skin a collie to make my backpack.”


Dionne (to Cher, who is driving): “Hello? There was a stop sign.”

Cher: “I totally paused.”


Cher (during a classroom debate): “So like, right now for example. The Haitians need to come to America. But some people are all, ‘What about the strain on our resources?’ Well it’s like when I had this garden party for my father’s birthday, right? I put RSVP ’cause it was a sit-down dinner. But some people came that like did not RSVP I was like totally buggin’. I had to haul ass to the kitchen, redistribute the food, and squish in extra place settings. But by the end of the day it was, like, the more the merrier. And so if the government could just get to the kitchen, rearrange some things, we could certainly party with the Haitians. And in conclusion may I please remind you it does not say RSVP on the Statue of Liberty. Thank you very much.”
