Quotes and phrases from TV shows, movies, and whatnot tend to find their way into the everyday vernacular of each fangirl. You know it’s true! Today’s 5 Fandom Friday prompt is centered around our favorite fandom phrases, but I decided to go with the ones I tend to quote the most.
So without further ado, here are my favorite phrases to use in my everyday life:
✿ “This drink. I like it. ANOTHER!”- Thor
I constantly say this when I eat or drink something that I find super tasty, like frozen horchatas from Puesto. Mmmm! ANOTHER!
✿ “Treat yo self.” – Tom Haverford & Donna Meagle from Parks & Recreation
I think this is the one I say the most. When I know I’m about to go on a major shopping bender, I’ll justify it by saying, “TREAT YO SELF. –wherever I happen to be at– EDITION!” or whatever. Sometimes I’ll blurt out the item I’m getting and say “treat yo self!” enthusiastically like Donna and Tom (in the clip above). And if a friend is feeling indecisive about buying something, I’ll enable them by saying “treat yo self.” ☺
✿ “It’s a trap!” – Admiral Ackbar from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi
I say this when something looks iffy, or too good to be true. Like certain sales — have you seen Hot Topic’s latest one where you can save 30% off all the clothes you can fit inside of a backpack and get 30% off the backpack too? IT’S A TRAP! It’s an elaborate ruse to get all your monies!
✿ “I want to go to there.” – Liz Lemon from 30 Rock
Of all the Liz Lemonisms, this is the one I say the most. I say it when I see an article on the interwebs of a place I want to go to (the Wizarding World of Harry Potter!), or if someone tells me about some place with food that sounds stupid delicious and amazing, or if I see some hot dude.
✿ Anything from Mean Girls
What quote from Mean Girls isn’t applicable to every day life? If your friend does something great? “YOU GO GLEN COCO!” Or if you want to go somewhere, but your friend says they can’t go with you? “Boo, you whore.” I like sending gifs of that via text too. Hehehe ☺. When you pick up a friend to go somewhere? “Get in loser. We’re going shopping.” When someone that’s not applicable to a certain situation butts in? “SHE DOESN’T EVEN GO HERE.” The possibilities are endless and so fetch.

How did I forget Treat Yo Self?!

Oh man I say “I want to go to there” all the time! Can’t believe I left that one off!
I use every single one of these phrases at least once a week. Also, “Suck it, Nerds!!”
Omg, these were such great choices! I totally forgot all about the “Boo. You whore.” That was my daily life for so long, haha! Really neat!
Yes!! Treat yo self!! And you are so correct about Mean Girls!!
It’s a trap! ♥ Also, that Hot Topic sale, man. I wish I had the monies for that, so amazingggg.
Yessss, so much yes! I don’t think I could pick favorites because I use so many. Mostly Futurama quotes barely anyone understands hah! These are great 😀
Love this list! I can’t believe I didn’t include treat yo self in mine! Iconic!
