Today, July 16th, marks 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.

But even though that the iconic film is a quarter of a century old, Hocus Pocus is still relatable as ever, and it’s continues to be a treasure trove of quotes we can use in a variety of situations — yes, even in the middle of the summer. So to really celebrate its 25th birthday, here are 17 lines from the movie that are still highly quotable today:

1When you find it hard to get up from bed during Monday mornings:

“Oh, look. Another glorious morning. It makes me sick!”

2When you’re getting ready for a night out and feeling yourself:

“I am beautiful! Boys will LOVE me!”

3When the waiter asks you how you like your avocado:


4When people ask you to take a chill pill:


5When someone compliments the outfit you worked so hard putting together:

“Thank you. I really like yours too.”

6When you just watched a scary movie and acting like it didn’t affect you:

“Oh, come on. It’s just a bunch of hocus pocus.”

7When you try to squeeze into a pair of jeans you bought 5 years ago:

8When you see your crush from afar:

“I put a spell on you, and now you’re mine!”

9When the person you like tells you they want to have children someday:

“You know, I always wanted a child, and now I think I’ll have one.”

10When you happen to pass by your old school:

“What is this place?” “It is a prison for children.”

11When you and your friends are all stressed out about something:

“Think soothing thoughts.”

12When you’re trying to plan something with the group chat but no one can agree on a date:

“Why, why, WHY, was I cursed with such idiot sisters?”

“I shall always be with you.”

14When you’re explaining something to someone and they STILL don’t understand:

“Dost thou comprehend?!”

“Hang him on a hook and let me play with him!”

“I found it quite lovely!”

“Couldn’t you forget about being a cool teenager just for one night?”
