Last year marked the 25th anniversary of the best Halloween movie of all time: Hocus Pocus. It’s one of those films that shaped our childhood, and we probably wouldn’t be who we are today if it weren’t for the sassy, hilarious, and scary Sanderson sisters. It’s safe to say that that trio of witches put a spell on us—and the young Max, Dani, and Allison too. Even though the iconic film is more than a quarter of a century old, Hocus Pocus is still relatable as ever, and continues to be a treasure trove of funny quotes, memes, and jokes we can’t get enough of. Not to mention, they make pretty excellent Halloween Instagram captions.

So pass the pumpkin spice and round up your crew for a viewing party, or set your DVR for one of the 30 showings of Hocus Pocus that will be on Freeform this month, then, relive a bit of your childhood with these hilarious, iconic quotes from Mary, Sarah, and Winifred.
