VO: Lisa Yang
This countdown is SOOOO FETCH! No? Okay. This movie has so many quotable lines we always find ourselves using the quotes in our everyday conversations. Have a new co-worker? Aren’t you so tempted to say, “You can’t sit with us!” in that Gretchen Weiner voice? Are you picking up your friend in your car? Admit it, how many times did you say “Get in loser!” We’re pretty sure all of us have used the “On Wednesdays, we wear pink” for those who wore pink on Wednesdays and of course…”You go, Glen Coco!” anytime we can throw it in.

Top 10 Mean Girls Movie Quotes

Seriously, how did this movie not get an Oscar nod for Best Adapted Screenplay? Welcome to MsMojo and today we’ll be counting down our picks for the Top 10 Mean Girls Movie Quotes.
For this list, we’re taking a look at the most memorable lines from this 2004 comedy that people continue to quote even to this day.

#10: I Have ESPN

On the surface, Karen Smith looks like a stereotypical dumb blonde... but when you really get to know her… yeah, she kinda still is. However, as she reveals to Cady, what she lacks in brains, she makes up for with a special ability. Her breasts can tell when it’s going to rain… well, technically her breasts know when it’s raining. Karen describes her fifth sense as “ESPN.” Of course, we’re pretty sure she meant “ESP” and not the sports channel. Regardless, Karen uses her incredible gift to become a weather girl, delivering another unforgettably quotable line in the process (xref). Karen might not be the brightest bulb, but with lines like these, she’s proof of Tina Fey’s ability as a screenwriter.

#9: You Can’t Sit With Us

After taking away both Regina’s boyfriend and figure, Cady sets out to destroy her “army of skanks” (Man candy and hot bod). She gets the results she was looking for when Gretchen and Karen finally stand up to Regina - she’s wearing sweatpants on a Monday, which is a direct violation of the Plastics’ dress code. Chowing down on carbs (and butter), Regina dismisses the rule, despite the fact that Karen had previously been shunned on similar grounds. Pushed over the edge, Gretchen lashes out at the Queen Bee, repeating Karen’s declaration in an emphatic shriek. While Regina had it coming, you can’t help but feel a little sorry for her in this moment. After all, it’s not like she had any other outfit choices.

#8: Boo, You Whore

Regina is constantly talking smack behind people’s backs. Then again, she’s not afraid to diss them directly either. As part of the aforementioned plot to turn Regina’s “Army of Skanks” against her, Cady orchestrates a phone call. Unaware that Gretchen is on the other line, Regina casually burns two of her best friends. Gretchen passes the word on to Karen, who, understandably, isn’t pleased to learn that Regina called her a “slut”. To get out of her plans with Regina, Karen fakes a cough. Much to Karen’s surprise, Regina responds with this shocking, hilarious and rather insulting one-liner (Boo, you whore). The only thing more priceless than the quote is Karen’s stunned face and Regina’s abrupt hang up. Classic.

#7: Why Are You White?

When Cady meets the Plastics for the first time, they’re amazed to learn that she has spent the majority of her life in Africa. Seemingly even more shocking however, is the fact that Cady has never been to public school. With the conversation having moved on, Karen reveals that she’s still processing the whole “Africa” reveal. With an exceedingly perplexed expression on her face, she bluntly asks Cady how she can have white skin if she’s from Africa. Rather than explaining the obvious to her oblivious friend, Gretchen simply tells Karen that she can’t just ask people “why they’re white”. Through this hilarious exchange, Karen demonstrates that she’s capable of being simultaneously ignorant in multiple ways.

#6: It’s Full of Secrets

After making friends with Janis and Damian, Cady learns all about the Plastics and what they each bring to the team. In Gretchen Wieners’ case, she’s the one who knows everybody’s business. According to Damian, Gretchen’s hair is so big because “it’s full of secrets.” This classic quote is not only hilarious and perfectly delivered by actor Daniel Franzese, but also successfully epitomises Gretchen’s character. She’s a gossip girl who has trouble keeping her mouth shut. Gretchen even has dirt on Regina, like the fact that she’s constantly cheating on her boyfriend, Aaron. Although Gretchen considers herself “such a good friend,” her hair full of secrets ultimately contributes to the Queen Bee’s downfall.

#5: Get In, Loser

Regina George has called her friends and classmates some pretty nasty names. Come to think of it, “loser” is probably one of the gentler words in her vocabulary. In that sense, maybe Cady should take it as a compliment when Regina pulls up in her convertible and shouts, “Get in loser, we're going shopping.” In addition to spawning countless memes, this quote is Regina in a nutshell. Insulting others is simply second nature to her, and has little to do with her actual mood. As rude and insensitive as Regina is, everybody in school still idolizes her. And so Cady gets in the car with no questions asked.

#4: She Doesn’t Even Go Here

Sometimes a person just needs to express themselves… even if it’s to a room full of strangers. When the Plastics’ Burn Book sparks a wild riot, the junior girls are forced to report to the gymnasium. To help clear the air, Ms. Norbury instructs her students to let their emotions out. One particular girl seizes this opportunity to get a few things off her chest. Reminiscing of her middle school days, this mystery girl practically breaks down in tears. While her speech is nothing short of hysterical, Damian immortalizes the scene by pointing out that she doesn’t even go here. It’s the icing on the cake... filled with rainbows and smiles.

#3: On Wednesdays, We Wear Pink

The Plastics have a strict fashion code that every member must abide by. When the mean girls invite Cady to eat lunch with them for the week, Karen shares one of their most important rules: “On Wednesdays, we wear pink.” Cady apparently doesn’t actually own anything pink, but thankfully, Damian has her covered. Interestingly enough, “Mean Girls” celebrated its tenth anniversary on April 30, 2014, which just so happened to be a Wednesday. So as you can imagine, plenty of fans wore pink that day to show their undying love for the film. It’s a testament to both the enduring popularity and cultural impact of “Mean Girls”, and proof that this particular line really stands out.

#2: You Go, Glenn Coco

In this memorable scene, Damian, dressed as Santa Claus, congratulates Glenn Coco on receiving four “candy cane grams”. Although this might seem like a throwaway line, “You go, Glenn Coco” has taken on a life of its own. The phrase has become so popular that there are multiple pages on Urban Dictionary dedicated to Glenn Coco. What makes this especially hilarious is that Glenn Coco’s barely in the movie. David Reale, the actor who portrayed the character, wasn’t even credited for his role according to IMDB. It’s hard to say why exactly this quote stuck with fans. Whether it was as a result of Damian’s delivery or Tina Fey’s knack for writing one-liners, it’s clear that somebody deserves a candy cane.

Before we get to our top pick, here are a few honorable mentions:

I’m a Cool Mom

Ugliest Effing Skirt

Heavy Flow & a Wide-Set Vagina

#1: So Fetch

Poor Gretchen. All she wanted was to popularize the term “fetch, ” which basically means “awesome” or “cool.” Although Gretchen uses this word multiple times, Regina eventually makes it clear that fetch is not going to happen. Unfortunately for her, this harsh put down proves the final straw for Gretchen, motivating her to turn on Regina like Brutus did on Caesar. To Regina’s credit, she was kinda right. Fetch never successfully became common slang among the youth. However, it did become arguably the most iconic line from this incredibly quotable film. So... in a roundabout way, Gretchen did succeed in popularizing the term, just not how she imagined.
