The 20 Best Cher Horowitz Lines in “Clueless”

clueless 2

It’s been twenty years since “Clueless” hit theaters on July 19, 1995 and introduced us to the lovably naïve Cher Horowitz (played by Alicia Silverstone) and her band of Beverly Hills buddies. Since its debut, the Amy Heckerling comedy has gained cult status with teens and film lovers of all ages. Based loosely on Jane Austen’s “Emma,” the movie updates the classic love story and moves the action to Beverly Hills, California. In honor of the films twentieth anniversary, let’s take a look back at twenty of Cher’s most memorable lines.

20. “Wasn’t my mom a total Betty?” (Referring to a painting of her mom)

19. “Isn’t my house classic? The columns date all the way back to 1972.”

18. “This is where Dionne lives. She’s my friend because we both know what it’s like for people to be jealous of us.”

17. “Miss Stoeger, I would just like to say that physical education in this school is a disgrace. I mean, standing in line for forty minutes is hardly aerobically effective. I doubt I’ve worked off the calories in a stick of Carefree gum.”

16. “Okay, okay, so he is kind of a Baldwin.” (Referring to Josh, of course!)

15. “I feel like such a heifer. I had two bowls of Special K, three pieces of turkey bacon, a handful of popcorn, five peanut butter M&M’s and like three pieces of licorice.”

14. (When asked by her dad what she did in school that day) “Well, I broke in my purple clogs.”

13. (Talking to her housekeeper) “Lucy, you know I don’t speak Mexican.”

12. “I was surfing the crimson wave. I had to haul ass to the ladies’.”

11. (After Dionne calls her out on not stopping at a stop sign) “I totally paused.”

10. “Do you prefer ‘fashion victim’ or ‘ensembly challenged’?”

9. “I felt impotent and out of control. Which I really, really hate. I had to find sanctuary in a place where I could gather my thoughts and regain my strength…” (Cut to a wide shot of the mall 😂)

8. (After she side-swipes a parked car) “Oh! Should I write them a note?”

7. “Searching for a boy in high school is as useless as searching for meaning in a Pauly Shore movie.”

6. “Dionne and her boyfriend Murray are in this dramatic relationship. I think they’ve seen that Ike and Tina Turner movie too many times.”

5. “And, in conclusion, may I please remind you it does not say R.S.V.P. on the Statue of Liberty.”

4. “Dionne and I were both named after famous singers of the past who now do infomercials.”

3. “So okay, I don’t want to be a traitor to my generation and all, but I don’t get how guys dress today. I mean, come on, it looks like they just fell out of bed and put on some baggy pants and take their greasy hair–ew–and cover it up with a backwards cap and like, we’re expected to swoon? I don’t think so.”

2. “Okay, so you’re probably going, ‘Is this like a Noxzema commercial or what?’ But seriously, I actually have a way normal life for a teenage girl.”

1. “Ugh! As if!”
