‘Clueless’ Came Out 15 Years Ago Today. In Other News, I Am Old.

Clueless, the film that introduced the world to Alicia Silverstone, Paul Rudd, and that “Rollin’ with the Homies” song, turns fifteen years old today. So… what’s your favorite quotable Clueless line?

      Dad: What’s that?
      Cher: A dress.
      Dad: Says who?
      Cher: Calvin Klein

    • Caroline Sloan

      Christian: Do you like Billie Holiday?
      Cher: I love him.

      I can’t lie, my favorite quote is, “Way harsh, Tai”. And apparently no one agrees… but now I’m going to have to go home and watch that movie tonight! It’s been forever!

      I remember having just turned 6 and not being allowed to tag along when my parents went to see Clueless. But I made up for it by watching it at countless sleepovers from age 7 to…well, now.

      My fave quote is: “It doesn’t say RSVP on the Statue of Liberty.”

        And don’t forget that we can totally party with the Haiti-ans.

    • Jessica Pauline Ogilvie

      i’ve always felt that “i totally paused” was an underappreciated line in this film! good call to add it.

      It’s a toss-up. Between 3.
      1. Dad: Do you know what time it is?
      Cher: A watch doesn’t really go with this outfit, daddy.
      2. Cher: That’s Ren and Stimpy. They’re way existential.
      3. Cher: Wasn’t my mom a total Betty? She died when I was young. A freak accident during a routine liposuction.

      1. Cher: Would you look at that body language? Legs crossed towards each other. That is an unequivocal sex invite.

      By the way, I believed that for years.

    • Lisa

      Also, the ULTIMATE:
      Cher: Do you prefer “fashion victim” or “ensembly challenged”?

    • Alla

      Amber: “My plastic surgeon told me not to participate in any activities where balls fly at my face”
      Dion: “There goes your social life”

    • Gerber

      the best quote by far is “Excuse me, Ms. Dion! street slang is an increasingly valid form of expression. Most of the feminine pronouns do have mocking, but not necessarily misogynistic undertones.”

      • Jo

        Second that.

    • Liz

      I like the speech that Travis gives when he learns he has the most tardies!

      • Julia Friedman

        Yes! I totally agree with you on this one.

    • Valerie

      God I’m old. My favorite quote was always from Cher.
      “I was surfing the crimson wave. I had to haul ass to the ladies.”

    • DW

      Not a total Betty, but a vast improvement.

      • jess

        YES! that was one of my favorites too.


      “This is the Persian Mafia. You can only hang out with them if you have a BMW.”

    • Maressa

      “He’s a disco-dancing, Oscar Wilde reading, Streisand ticket-holding friend of Dorothy, know what I’m saying?” I believe I find this one particularly useful, as I got my Bachelors at Emerson College.

    • Michelle

      One of my favorites is “I’m actually getting tired.” I still use that one now: I know, I’m old. I think I might have to watch it again now too… Happy Birthday, Clueless!

    • Maryanne

      Daddy’s a litigator. Those are the scariest kinds of lawyers. Even Lucy, our maid, is terrified of him. He’s so good he gets paid five hundred dollars an hour just to fight with people, but he fights with me for free ’cause I’m his daughter.

      I know this post is way old but:

      “Duh it’s like a famous quote!”
      “From where?”
      “Cliff’s notes.”
