Best lines from “Legally Blonde” that you should use in your vocabulary

Legally Blonde just celebrated its 15th anniversary and it is still as relevant as it was the day it hit theaters back in 2001. In honor of the amazing film that gave us Reese Witherspoon’s best performance ever (okay, she’s fabulous in basically everything she does, but we do love her in this film), we rounded up the best quotes from the movie that should be added to your vocabulary ASAP.

Sadly, not all Legally Blonde quotes make sense in everyday life, but we did find a good amount that can be used as is, or changed up a bit to work into your day-to-day routine. So, put on your favorite pink ensemble, snuggle up to your puppy (if he’s not a Chihuahua that’s okay) and read through the quotes below.


“Whoever said orange is the new pink was seriously disturbed.” — Elle Woods

#Preach! This line should be used in regards to fashion mistakes or when someone is just being crazy. For example, if a person thinks that Ryan Gosling is NOT hot, you could say this line and it would prove you are SO confused by what you just heard.


“Don’t stomp your little last season Prada shoes at me, honey.” — Enrique

The next time someone makes you wait in line or gives you attitude, just switch out the word “Prada” in this quote and you’ll be all set at making them realize how annoyed you really are. We can see it now, the next time you’re at Target and someone cuts you off at the dollar bin area, you say… “Don’t stomp your little last season Sketchers at me, honey!” #Werk.


Warner: “You got into Harvard Law?”

Elle: “What? Like, it’s hard?”

Don’t ever let anyone make you feel like you’re not smart enough to do something you know you can handle. If they do, simply tilt your head and sassily ask, “what? like it’s hard?” You will own that conversation and let’s face it, you’ll feel amazing.


“The Bible.” — Elle

Elle used “the bible” when referring to the guide that sorority girls love to abide by…Cosmopolitan, but you can use this phrase in a bunch of situations. Use it when you bring your BFF her favorite movie that you’ve been quoting for years, or when you buy Giada De Laurentiis’ cookbook (that will literally change your life). Anytime you use something (even the actual Bible) to help you through a big moment, you can use this phrase.


“If I’m going to be a partner in a law firm by the time I’m 30, I’m going to need a boyfriend who’s not such a bonehead.” — Elle

Ugh, people can be such boneheads sometimes and they need to be called one every now and then. Boys are stupid (cute, but dumb) so when your BF or BFF is driving you crazy, just call it like it is and say they are being a bonehead. It’s so ’90s, but appropriate for any generation.


“Bend and snap!” — Elle

Okay, so you don’t need to use the phrase, “bend and snap” in your daily vocabulary, but throwing in the actual move to attract your crush is a definite must. Just keep it in your back pocket the next time you are trying to get the attention of your future bae.


“I feel comfortable using legal jargon in everyday life. (whistle). I object!” — Elle

The next time someone says something you do not agree with, or have an issue with (aka if someone catcalls you), simply yell, “I object!” Not only will you sound official and smart, but it will definitley throw the person you’re angry at off guard and they will leave you alone.


“Exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. Happy people just don’t shoot their husbands, they just don’t.” — Elle

First of all, this Legally Blonde logic is genius. Second of all, you NEED this quote in your life, especially the “they just don’t” portion. Whenever you are trying to prove a point and need a strong ending statement we urge you to say this. No one will be able to counteract it…they just won’t!


Elle Woods was one tough cookie and very smart, despite what others thought about her based on her gorgeous blonde locks. Whenever you can, include some of her famous quotes from Legally Blonde in your vocabulary and your life will be much more interesting. Trust us! Oh, and when in doubt rock some pink for added confidence.
