The 15 Most Iconic Quotes From 'Clueless'

The 15 Most Iconic Quotes From 'Clueless'

Cher Horowitz, you're still my spirit animal.

Let's be honest: the '90s rom-com is a staple in everyone's movie habits (and lives.) And while there are plenty to choose from, it seems like one always stands out above the rest. That cinematic masterpiece is indeed "Clueless." Even 22 years after the release of the film, Cher Horowitz and her friends still find their way into our minds, lives, and hearts with their incredible wit and charm. Here are the 15 best quotes from "Clueless."

15. Josh: You are such a superficial space cadet.

14. Cher: I don't wanna be a traitor to my generation and all but I don't get how guys dress today. I mean, come on, it looks like they just fell out of bed and put on some baggy pants, and take their greasy hair- ew -and cover it up with a backwards cap, and like, we're expected to swoon? I don't think so!

13. Cher: And in conclusion, may I please remind you that it does not say RSVP on the Statue of Liberty!

12. Cher: Isn't my house classic? The columns date all the way back to 1972.

11. Cher: Would you call me selfish?

Dionne: No, not to your face.

10. Murray: Your friend Christian is a cake boy! He's a disco-dancing, Oscar Wilde-reading, Streisand-ticket holding friend of Dorothy, know what I'm saying?

9. Cher: This is where Dionne lives. She's my friend because we both know what it's like for people to be jealous of us.

8. Josh: You want to practice parking?

Cher: What's the point? Everywhere you go has valet.

7. Mel: Do you know what time it is?!

Cher: A watch doesn't really go with this outfit, Daddy

6. Travis: Tardiness is not something you can do on your own. Many, many people have contributed to my tardiness. I would like to thank my parents, for never giving me a ride to school. The LA city bus driver, for taking a chance on an unknown kid. And last but not least, the wonderful crew from McDonalds, who spend hours making those Egg McMuffins, without which I may never be tardy.

5. Tai: Do you think she's pretty?

Cher: No, she's a full-on Monet. It's like a painting, see? From far away it's OK, but up close it's a big old mess!

4. Dionne: Hello? That was a stop sign?

Cher: I totally paused!

3. Cher: Oh my God, I am totally buggin'.

2. Tai: You're a virgin who can't drive.

1. Cher: Ugh, as if!

Thanks to this iconic movie we still have these rockin' catchphrases that have clearly stood the test of time. And yes, telling someone they're a virgin who can't drive is the most savage insult you could ever use on someone to this day.

50 Quotes from the Best Vines

If you're picturing the vines in your head, you're doing it right

In 2017 we had to say goodbye to one of the best websites to ever roam the internet: Vine. In case you have been living under a rock since 2013, Vine was -(sad face)- a website and app that took the internet and the app store by storm in Winter 2013. It contained 6-second videos that were mostly comedy- but there were other genres including music, sports, cool tricks and different trends. Vine stars would get together and plan out a vine and film it till they got it right.

It was owned by Twitter and it was shut down because of so many reasons; the viners were leaving and making money from Youtube, there was simply no money in it and Twitter wanted us to suffer.

'This Is America': The Most Provocative Music Video of 2018

So far, no music video has been as provocative this year as much as "This Is America."

Anyone that knows me is aware of my love for music. However, that is a general statement that could apply to anyone. However, I also love controversial music. Sympathy For the Devil. Closer by Nine Inch Nails. God Save the Queen by the Clash. All songs that pushed boundaries or were taboo. I also love controversial music videos, ones that appeal to your senses via their eccentricity, their ability to provoke or to make you contemplate.

So far, no music video has been as provocative this year as much as "This Is America," the song performed and written by Childish Gambino.

For one, the imagery and the symbolism stands out as interesting. Guns being pampered to with the finest cloth, implying preferential treatment for guns, even over people. The contorting of the body by Donald Glover to echo back to the times of Jim Crow. The use of the iPhone, which has been used to capture instances of injustice very recently. Plus, the scene at the end which is reminiscent of the film "Get Out," which served as an allegory for black America and its treatment at the hands of white people. All in all, while not necessarily the most subtle, the point gets across. Whether you agree or disagree with what he says, it makes for a compelling watch.

Next, the violence, which is tied into various portions of the video. The song is prefaced by Childish Gambino killing a man who has his entire face covered by a cloth, unaware of the fate that awaits him. Then, the robbery which occurs in the background as he moves forward and the video progresses (pretty self-explanatory). Then, the infamous scene; he proceeds to walk into a room, where he then receives an AK-47. This is used to mow down a church choir, in a scene that has been compared to the Charleston church massacre (though they were not performing in real life).

Obviously, there are the lyrics too. The juxtaposition between Glover himself and the character he creates for himself (Oaxaca being infamous for drug dealers, yet he went to NYU and, obviously, is immensely famous/wealthy), the commentary he provides on America's obsession with the material and superficial, as well as the mockery of trap music (easily regurgitated portions of the song, a key facet of modern day rappers like Lil Pump).

Overall, an interesting song. Doesn't really matter what your opinion is on the subject matter itself; it is sure to provoke because of the perspective he offers willingly to us. The video contains good visuals, issues Glover sees as wrong with America, and references/allusions to American society and events in the past. A thought-provoking video at the end of the day, and one I could watch again and again to break down.
