The only answer to the question “What are you doing tonight?” And what you did on Friday night with a date before the answer became “Netflix and chill”.
All that and a bag of chips
You knew this line was great when All 4 One used it in “She’s Got Skillz”. I mean, what girl doesn’t want to be compared to a bag of Lays?
One of the best lines from the movie “Clueless”. Who didn’t want to be Cher in her Jeep throwing out an “As if” to all the yucky boys trying to talk to her? And that closet? Cher was ahead of her time with a computer program to pick out her clothes!
Take a chill pill
As in “Geez, Mom. I’ll clean up my room later. Take a chill pill!”
Talk to the hand
One I still have to use from time to time. The ultimate conversation ender and extra points if you managed to add the “cause the face is NOT listening” on the end!
You go, girl
What better way to express solidarity in your girl power-ness than to compliment your bestie with a “You go, girl!” Bonus if you snapped your fingers in a Z!
The “oops” of the 90s and the easiest way to take the blame. Not to be confused with “my bag”. Say it wrong and you immediately lose all your cool points!
A single word that must be pronounced as 2, to get the full effect … WHAT EVER. (Eye roll, optional!) At one point my dad declared the “whatever” to be so disrespectful, he banned me from saying it!
The ultimate in sarcasm and the best way to win any argument, and what we did before we “threw shade”. “That dress is SO cute on her … NOT!”
I think this one is timeless since you still hear it occasionally. And if you’re really gonna go back, you can bust out with the “bomb-diggity”. And even though hardly anyone says it anymore, it’s still fun to throw into random conversation. Consider it “retro”.
