12 Of The Best Quotes From "10 Things I Hate About You"

“But mostly, I hate the way I don’t hate you. Not even close. Not even a little bit. Not even at all.”

There is something about 90's movies that leaves a mark on the cinematic world. They become classics and are watched by multiple generations after they are released. When new "coming of age" movies are created, they are held to a certain standard due to the teen coming-of-age movies that were made in the 90's. In 1999, the film "10 Things I Hate About You" was released and left it's mark as one of the classics that came out of the 90's. Not only was the film itself a classic, it was filled with many memorable, relatable, and iconic quotes - and I have (tried) to narrow it down to the 12 best.

1. When Kat sarcastically summed up how a majority of girls feel about the male population.

“I guess, in this society, being male and an asshole makes you worthy of our time.”

2. When Patrick did not hold back the way he really felt.

“That’s a touching story. It really is.... Not my problem.”

4. When Patrick was awesome at compromising to be able to get what he wants.

“Well let’s think about this. We go to the movies, that’s, uh, 15 bucks. We get popcorn, that’s, uh, 53. And, uh, she’ll want Raisinets, right? So, uh, we’re looking at 75 bucks.”

5. When Kat used an old school version of one of the best modern terms.

“Do you even know my name, screw-boy?”

6. When Kat hit everyone with the realness of life

“You don’t always have to be who they want you to be, you know.”

7. When Michael was so adorably innocent.

“The last party I went to was at Chuck E Cheese. You want to talk about some fun? That’s a good time!”

8. When Patrick gave the pep-talk that everyone needs to hear.

“Don’t let anyone, ever, make you feel like you don’t deserve what you want.”

9. When Cameron was over Bianca bullsh**.

“Just because you’re beautiful, that doesn’t mean you can treat people like they don’t matter.”

10. When Kat expressed that the only opinions that matter are your own.

“I don’t like to do what people expect. Why should I live up to other people’s expectations instead of my own?”

11. When Kat was trying to be a protective older sister.

“Not all experiences are good, you can’t always trust the people you want to.”

12. And of course... Last but not least... The most iconic...

“But mostly, I hate the way I don’t hate you. Not even close. Not even a little bit. Not even at all.”

8 Disney Movies You Need To Binge Watch Right Now

Number 4 will have any one singing and dancing right along!


I think we all know Disney movies aren't just for children. The songs, the stories, and the dancing, it all just feels so magical! So for anytime you're craving some magic, here are some of the best Disney movies to watch right now!

1. Lilo and Stitch

This Disney hit will have every one happy and moving along!

2. The Lion King

While we all anxiously wait for the live action version of this classic we can just continue to rewatch the animated version and pray that the new one will be all we hope for.

3. Mulan

This movie doesn't get the credit it deserves. Mulan was the first princess to really break the mold and do her own thing and for that (along with Mushu's comedic relief) it should be considered one of the top Disney movies ever.

4. Aladdin

One of my personal all time favorites, Aladdin is sure to please everyone! The Genie is by far one of the best supporting characters in Disney history and this movie also has a live action version in the works!

5. Hercules

This Disney movie puts a fun musical spin on Greek mythology, and lets not forget about the bop "I Won't Say (I'm in Love)"

6. Mary Poppins

Arguably one of the greatest Disney movies of all time, Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke continue to please crowds everywhere to this day.

7.Beauty and the Beast

One of the more timeless tales on this list, this one too continues to stay in style and was just revamped with a live action version starring Emma Watson.

8. The Princess and the Frog

Definitely a more modern choice on this list, The Princess and the Frog is definitely one of the more unique and entertaining Disney movies. With songs like "Almost There" this movie was bound to be a hit.
