25 Totally Iconic ‘Clueless’ Quotes to Revisit on Film’s 25th Anniversary

From ”I’m totally buggin'“ to ”You’re a virgin who can’t drive,“ here are some of the best lines from the 90’s classic

“Clueless” turns 25 years old this weekend. Its fashion, culture references and teen slang may still be rooted in the ’90s, but the classic high school literary adaptation still has some of the most iconic quotes, one-liners and exchanges in movie history.

“That makes me so happy. When someone told me that their daughter and her friends decided to go as Cher and Dionne for Halloween, I was like, ‘oh my God, I f-king love that,'” writer and director Amy Heckerling said in an interview with TheWrap. “I was at the Museum of Modern Art and I heard someone quote the Monet part (‘She’s a full-on Monet. It’s like a painting, see. From far away it’s okay, but up close it’s a big ol’ mess.’)”

“I have to give props to the UCLA linguistics department — they published a list of slang words and phrases, and Monet came from that,” Heckerling continued. “You keep your ear to the ground and you do research and you hear things, and a lot of things came from gay friends, from rap songs, from linguistics, from old slang dictionaries, and old movies and songs.”
