Movies Every Girl Should Be Able To Quote

Who run the world?! GIRLS! Well that’s obvious, but hey, it’s nice to be reminded, amiright?!

However, if you truly want to become a real, human woman with bona-fide credentials you’re gonna need more than a few Beyoncé quotes to fall back on. Yeah, we’re talking quick-thinking, throw-it-out-there movie quotes, for all situations.

Word of caution—the following movie quotes should be used with the upmost wit and fast reaction responses for ultimate high-five status to be achieved.

Think you’ve got what it takes, solider? Buckle up, print off this list and get ready for all things “fetch.”

Mean Girls

We could have easily filled this list with the entire script of Mean Girls, but to offer you lovely ladies a bit of variety, we painfully narrowed it down to our top five. With plenty of blonde bimbo action, back-stabbing and ‘Kalteen Bars’, Cady and the ‘army of skanks’ make Mean Girls a top chick-flick choice.

Case in point:

“Four for you, Glen Coco. You GO Glen Coco!”—Damian, and again:

“She doesn’t even go here!”

“I can’t help that I’ve got a heavy flow and a wide-set vagina”—Poor, poor Bethany Bryd

“You can’t just ask someone why they’re white!”—Gretchen Wieners

And of course...

“On Wednesdays we wear pink"—Karen


Clueless is arguably one of the greatest teen movies of all times. Period. Cher Horowitz was the girl we all dreamed to be. She had it all—great friends, the best wardrobe EVER and she got the guy, swoon! With an abundance of sassy, fashion-forward and kick-ass quotes to choose from, selecting some couldn’t have been easier!

“Ugh, as if.”—Cher

“Ms Stoeger, my plastic surgeon, doesn’t want me doing any activity where balls fly at my nose.”—Amber

“Well, there goes your social life.”—Dionne

Mel: “What the hell is that?”
Cher: “A dress.”
Mel: “Says who?”—Mel again
Cher: “Calvin Klein.” *mic drop*

She’s The Man

While we are all still trying to help Amanda Bynes find the plot again, let’s reminisce on the time when her comedic and utterly brilliant performance in She’s The Man knocked us out of our movie seats. Paired alongside the ever hunky Channing Tatum, the duo made for one of the most quotable films to date!

“Oh for the love of God, it buuurns!”—Viola

“I’m gonna be the best lab partner you’ve ever had.”—Eunice, and again:

“I made breakfast darling!”

“I’m allergic to the sun.”—Viola

10 Things I Hate About You

With a tear in our eye and a hole in our heart, we just have to—have to—mention, 10 Things I Hate About You. Well, one quote in particular, just because.

“I hate the way you talk to me, and the way you cut your hair; I hate the way you drive my car, I hate it when you stare. I hate your big dumb combat boots and the way you read my mind. I hate you so much it makes me sick; It even makes me rhyme. I hate the way you’re always right, I hate it when you lie, I hate it when you make me laugh; Even worse when you make me cry. I hate it that you’re not around and the fact that you didn’t call. But mostly I hate the way I don’t hate you; Not even close, not even a little bit, not even at all.”—Kat

13 Going On 30

Now we don’t know about you but we are utterly, utterly obsessed with this movie. 13 Going On 30 was full of fashion, fun and all the things in between. Add in the BEST soundtrack ever and you’ve got yourself your next slumber party movie fo sho!

“Boys are stupid. I mean, how come the ones you like never like you?”—Becky, wiser words never said, sister!

“Thirty, flirty and thriving.”—Jenna, and again:

“You are rude and mean and sloppy and frizzy and I don’t like you at all!”

Cinderella Story

If super hunk Chad Michael Murray is in a film, you know it’s gonna be goooood! Pop him alongside American sweetheart Hilary Duff and you’ve got yourself a rom-com full of quote-worthy and relatable references to see you through your high school years. Well, apart from the Mr Murray side of things, but hey ho!

“Waiting for you is like waiting for rain in this drought—useless and disappointing.”—Sam. Buuurn.

Shelby: “What can I get that has no sugar, no carbs and is fat-free?”
Sam: “Water.”

Bridget Jones’s Diary

She’s quite possibly the most relatable character in book and film history and if it wasn’t for her clumsiness, crass habits and love of spanx, we don’t know where we would be right now. You guessed it, Bridget Jones just had to make an appearance—with cigarette in hand, of course.

“Bridget Jones, wanton sex goddess, with a very bad man between her thighs…Mum, hi.”—Bridget, and again:

“This is an occasion for genuinely tiny knickers.”—And again, because, why not...

“Am enjoying a relationship with two men simultaneously. The first is called Ben, the other, Jerry.”


Where do we even begin?! C’mon, with an all-star cast boasting some of the funniest lines in movie history, you can surely empathise with us as we try and pick out just a few! Bridesmaids just gets us, well, we haven’t s**t ourselves in a bridesmaids dress in the middle of the street, but you know what we mean.

“I’m glad he’s single, cos I’m gonna climb that like a tree.”—Megan

“Help me, I’m poor.”—Annie, and again:

“He was sweet and nice and cute, so naturally I ran as fast as I could.”

Legally Blonde

Elle Woods is the blonde bombshell leading the way for women everywhere. With her no-nonsense attitude and matching wardrobe to go with, we simply couldn’t leave Legally Blonde off this list. For quote upon quote of kick-ass lines, look no further!

“Hi I’m Elle Woods and this is Bruiser Woods. We’re both Gemini vegetarians.”—Elle Woods, obviously, and again:

“Whoever said orange was the new pink was seriously disturbed.”

Dirty Dancing

The original duo guilty of rocking mom jeans and sweaty dance halls, Baby and Johnny are the dancing dream. With no better quote to end all quotes, we leave you with this cult classic:

“No one puts Baby in a corner.”—Johnny
