23 Gen-Y Movie Quotes For Basically Any Situation You Might Find Yourself In

by Ashley Fern

Whoever said baseball was America's favorite pastime has never watched a movie marathon with their best friends, reciting quotes throughout its entirety.

These quotes are what have given rise to the GIF generation and, honestly, these sayings plague our daily conversations.

Out of context, you may not think these little quotes apply, but when you and your friends are all on the same page, hilarity ensues.

What are our most favorite movie lines to throw into conversation? Well, check them out below:

1. "You blew it" - Billy Madison

This saying fits quite perfectly when your friend tells you how badly he f*cked up the previous night sexually. There is little to no chance of redemption since a bad sexual encounter goes a long way and no matter how blacked out you were, this isn't something that is easily forgotten.

 2. "Milk was a bad choice" - Anchorman

This is what you say to yourself and your best friend after you both wake up super hungover and quickly stuff your faces with whatever food you have left in your fridge.

This is clearly the go-to option as you obviously haven't gone food shopping in weeks and, as a result, eat way too much to try to get rid of the hangover, only to find yourself curled up in the fetal position again from a food coma.

 3. "Whatever, I'm getting cheese fries" - Mean Girls

This quote doesn't always apply to eating, but basically whenever you can't come to a decision with a friend.

Neither person cares to make any further effort, so instead of saying "agree to disagree," you opt for the more updated version: "Whatever, I'm getting cheese fries."

4. "I'm in a glass case of emotion" - Anchorman

You can't get a grip on how you feel. You just ran into your ex-boyfriend or ex-girlfriend who you thought you didn't give a sh*t about, but now... Thank God your friends are there to witness this catastrophic encounter because you're in a glass case of emotion... How do you react?

What do you do? Is there a right thing to do or a wrong thing? The world may never know...

5. "So, you're telling me there's a chance?" - Dumb And Dumber

You ask your friend to hook you up with her other friend who regretfully tells you all of the reasons why it is never, ever going to happen.

You obviously respond with this quote to save face and make light of the unfortunate situation.

 6. "Did we just become best friends?" - Stepbrothers

This is probably one of the most heavily-used movie quotes of our time.

Whenever you realize you and another person agree on something, especially something obscure and ridiculous, this is the only acceptable reaction.

You love guacamole? Best friends. You hate showering? Best friends. You hate the television show "Friends"? Best friends.

 7. "Lunch has been canceled due to lack of hustle. Deal with it." - Heavyweights

What is more stressful than trying to coordinate a group lunch with your girlfriends? NOTHING. All your friends have their own idea of what they want to eat and where they want to go.

You have the girl who wants to get wasted immediately at the nearest bottomless drink cafe; you have the girl who is so hungover all she wants is greasy food; you have the girl who wants the best location to shoot her next insta-famous picture.

Trying to coordinate a plan that accommodates everyone's wants and needs is tiresome, that by the thirtieth group text message, you just say F it; you guys can get your own lunch, this group outing has been canceled, reinstating the fact that you hate everyone.

 8. "Help me, I'm poor" -Bridesmaids

This applies to any situation a girl is EVER in. Whether she is shopping and can't afford the new $300 Mara Hoffman cover-up or she simply "can't" with the Vegas hotel prices she's trying to afford.

This usually ends up with her trying to convince a guy/mom/dad/grandma to buy things for her.

9. "He was a bartender on a cruise ship" - The Hangover

This really comes in handy when you are trying to validate your most recent hookup who seems less than ideal to your friends. A night out on the weekend after a hard week at work calls for your alter ego to resurface.

However, this usually ends up with you making a terrible life decision, which involves you hooking up with someone you never would have considered if you had been sober.

To avoid the utter humiliation of admitting you just boned a loser, you try and rationalize it to yourself and anyone who knows about the encounter. You make his job sound cooler than it is, his body sound better than it is and your night sound better than it was.

Sadly, chances are, it was a regretful mistake and he's just some 30-year-old man, still living at home, working some mediocre job. But it's okay girl, just walk it off.

10. "This one time at band camp..." - American Pie

This is the opener you typically use when you are about to tell an absolutely ridiculous story to your friends.

Hopefully, the second part of your tale doesn't not align with Michelle, but if it does, you won't get any judgment from us.

11. "There's no crying in baseball"- A League Of Their Own

Whenever your friend is being an outright pussy, this is the default response.

There's really no better way to put someone in her place than quoting "A League Of Their Own," and if this person is unsure of where this quote came from -- it gives you an excuse to rip on her even harder.

 12. "Um, I invented Post-Its" - Romy And Michele's High School Reunion

There's nothing worse than sitting around a dinner table with your college friends who are discussing all of their accomplishments since graduation.

Sure, you are totally happy for everything they have done, but personally, you haven't done sh*t worth bragging about. So naturally, the only thing left to do is to make up something completely ridiculous that holds absolutely no truth, give everyone a laugh and hope the conversation moves on.

13.  "Hold my poodle" - White Chicks

You and your friends need to leave the bar immediately because that one girl in your crew can't even stand anymore. You take a taxi home together with hopes of being able to somehow get her up the stairs.

Everyone's hands are full since the first thing you did when you got in the taxi was remove your shoes.

But now who's going to carry your friend to bed? Hold my poodle, I got this...

 14. "I'm allergic to the sun" - She's The Man

Everyone can agree that there is nothing better than a great tan. But tanning while hungover? I don't think so because there's nothing worse than lying in the sun after a night of questionable decisions.

If you still insist on getting your tan on, you absolutely need to be prepared with the darkest shade of sunglasses you have, as we all know how much it hurts to open your eyes.

Of course, the sun only decides to come out on the morning when you're most hungover, which is just so rude. However, there's no worse feeling than sweating out those five-too-many vodka shots on someone's rooftop in 90 degree weather, so clearly you're just currently allergic to the sun.

15. "Yeah. No. Don't put me down for cardio" - Pitch Perfect

It's difficult to understand how anyone enjoys running because to me that sounds like the worst way to spend your time.

This is something I have been dealing with for years -- listening to my friends tell me how much they love the elliptical... Do you know what I love? Netflix and Seamless.

So... until either of those things are available at the local gym, you will find me stretching on the ab mat, pretending to exercise.

 16. "What, like it's hard?" - Legally Blonde

Girls have been playing the "I'm too pretty to be smart" card for centuries, but when a pretty girl gets sh*t done, there is no greater feeling than rubbing it into a hater's face.

Accomplishing something difficult, but playing it off like it's just a typical Tuesday morning is something only Elle Woods could inspire. So, thank you for making us believe that how you look on the outside should never stop you from doing anything.

 17. "So you agree? You think you're really pretty?" - Mean Girls

Almost all girls have a close circle of girlfriends, but when someone tries to bring someone new into the group, a girl's bitchy side will come out. No one likes change and no girl genuinely likes new girls, even if they're good people.

Most often the girls in the group immediately start comparing themselves to the newbie: rating her hair, her skin, her body, her clothes.... the list goes on and on.

Don't want to deal with this BS? Then don't try and join a new group of girlfriends... otherwise, may the odds be ever in your favor.

 18. "You shut your mouth when you're talking to me" - Wedding Crashers

There is not a quicker nor more effective way to get people to stop their bitching than by throwing this line in their faces. You clearly are tuning out anything and everything that they are saying to you, so before your ears are polluted any longer, you need to figure out how to make it stop.

This person will become so enraged at your lack of empathy, he will (hopefully) leave in a huff, letting you get back to whatever it was you were doing before he talked your ear off.

 19. "I've just been shot" - Pitch Perfect

After countless hours of getting ready and planning your epic friday night out, there's no bigger buzzkill than getting to a club and having some 18-year-old with a fake ID drunkenly stumble into you and push past you.

Although her 90 pound body probably did no damage whatsoever, the dramatic reaction is what every girl has, especially if she also spilled part of her drink on you -- or even worse -- part of yours.

You scream as if she literally body slammed you to the floor, and get the attention of everyone around you just to cause a scene. Who does this girl think she is?

 20. "If you're a bird, I'm a bird" - The Notebook

Everyone knows this is the biggest piece of cinematic bullsh*t the world has ever been exposed to, which is why this quote is so funny in real life.

If your friend needs a wingman or company to an event -- you're her bird. Why? Because she is your friend and if she's a bird, well then so are you.

21. "Don't let him in, I'm not even cute yet" - What A Girl Wants

The last 30 min before a girl is completey ready are the most stressful. She obviously puts showering off until the absolute last second and that is when the sprint to the finish line begins.

This causes her to be 20 minutes late, at the least. We were always taught that it's better to be late than ugly, right?

Panic strikes when the guy actually gets to your place on time. Apply your second layer of bronzer and straighten out that afro because no boy should see you before you come out looking your best damn self.

22. "This isn't where I parked my car" - Eurotrip

Found yourself in an awkward situation? Well, this is basically your get out of jail free card. You walk in on your parents doing the deed, which leaves you and them in utter shock and disbelief.

Everyone is dead silent as no one knows how to react, so you exclaim, "Well this isn't where I parked my car," as you slowly back out the door.

23. "The funny thing about my back is that it's located on my c*ck" - Superbad

Every. Single. F*cking. Time. A. Girl. Gets. Hit. On.
