1. "Get in loser, we're going shopping!" - Regina George
Recycled by teens everywhere, you can still hear this famous after-school quote being tossed around in high school parking lots everywhere.
2. "She doesn't even go here!" − Damian Leigh

It's the perfect way to show that you're disappointed while still keeping the tone lighthearted since most people remember this epic line and will know you're quoting Mean Girls. If they don't realize it's a reference...well, you probably have a friend to patch things up with.
4. “Why should Caesar get to stomp around like a giant, while the rest of us try not to get smushed under his big feet? What's so great about Caesar? Hm? Brutus is just as cute as Caesar. Brutus is just as smart as Caesar. People totally like Brutus just as much as they like Caesar. And when did it become okay for one person to be the boss of everybody, huh? Because that's not what Rome is about. We should totally just stab Caesar!” - Gretchen Wieners
Nothing like a good old-fashioned breaking point, am I right? The most satisfying part of the Mean Girls movie is when Regina George's minions reevaluate their positions and start their quest for autonomy.

9. "Ex-boyfriends are off-limits to friends. That's just, like, the rules of feminism." - Gretchen Wieners
That time Gretchen Wieners actually made a good point. Even coming out of the mouth of one of the most out of touch, nonsensical people, this quote has merit. We can all agree that friends should never date their friends' exes, unless they're like, really hot.
10. “That's why her hair is so big. It's full of secrets.” - Damian Leigh
