Although we technically celebrate the amazingness that is the film Mean Girls every time we wear pink on a Wednesday, October 3rd is the official Mean Girls Day on calendars.
In the movie, Lindsay Lohan’s character Cady Heron has a crush on football player Aaron Samuels, and he turns around in class to ask her what day it is. “It’s October 3rd,” she says. And hence, the holiday!
To mark the occasion, we’ve decided to round up our favorite quotes from the iconic 2004 film. And we’ve included some of the lesser-quoted ones, too. Everybody knows “that’s so fetch,” but there are some true underrated gems that we’ve unearthed for all you Mean Girls aficionados out there.
