We would we be without Clueless? Honestly. Ask yourselves that question.
If you were a ’90s teen, Cher (Alicia Silverstone) and her posse of Beverly Hills rich kids with their designer threads and sassy one-liners would have pretty much ruled your world. From it’s wicked soundtrack (Rolling With The Homies anyone), to the swoony Paul Rudd ending, Clueless remains to be one of the definitive chick flicks ever made. And in honour of the movie’s twentieth anniversary this summer, we’d like to Cher with you (sorry, we could help ourselves), some of our fave Clueless quotes. Enjoy…
1. The Monet Discussion
Tai: Do you think she’s pretty?
Cher: No, she’s a full-on Monet.
Tai: What’s a monet?
Cher: It’s like a painting, see? From far away, it’s OK, but up close, it’s a big old mess. Let’s ask a guy. Christian, what do you think of Amber?
2. The Nose Job
Amber: Ms. Stoeger, my plastic surgeon doesn’t want me doing any activity where balls fly at my nose.
Dionne: Well, there goes your social life.
3. The Dress
Mel: What the hell is that?
Cher: A dress.
Mel: Says who?
Cher: Calvin Klein.
4. On Virginity
Cher: You see how picky I am about my shoes and they only go on my feet.
5. Current Affairs
Josh: Do you have any idea what you’re talking about?
Cher: No. Why, does it sound like I do?
6. On Friendship
Cher: Would you call me selfish?
Dionne: No, not to your face.
Cher: If it’s a concussion, you have to keep her conscious, okay? Ask her questions.
Elton: What’s seven times seven?
Cher: Stuff she knows.
8. On Dating Christian
Cher: He does dress better than I do, what would I bring to the relationship?
Mel: So, what did you do in school today?
Cher: Well, I broke in my purple clogs.
11. On Parking
Josh: You want to practice parking?
Cher: What’s the point? Everywhere you go has valet.
12. Way Harsh Tai
Tai: Why should I listen to you, anyway? You’re a virgin who can’t drive.
Cher: That was way harsh, Tai.
13. As If
