Tomorrow, Wednesday April 30th is the 10 year anniversary since Mean Girls was released. Not only is it a celebratory day, but it is a Wednesday. For those of you who have entered adult life by quoting this movie, you know that you’re going to have to wear pink! Or else Gretchen is going to come after you with her squeaky voice yelling: “you can’t sit with us!”.
Mean Girls is probably one of my most frequently watched movies of all time. Whenever we had girls nights, we would watch it accompanied by another movie, preferably John Tucker Must Die. There are just so many scenarios that this movie has helped us to put words to, such as when someone’s hair is big because it’s full of secrets.
I found an article on Bustle where they define the words or phrases from the movie and provide us with a usage. I guess this is rather useful for those who haven’t seen the movie or just need a little refreshment for Pink Wednesday. This list doesn’t even cover half of the best quotes, but it is a start. Can’t write down the entire script either!
