“She doesn’t even go here!”

From: Mean  Girls

Genre: Movies

Who said it?: Damian

The story behind the quote: The quote comes the cult classic, Mean Girls. Even though it was released over 10 years ago, many fans still remember the quotes from the film. While some of these quotes weren’t put in the film to be memorable or quotable, the writing of Mean Girls as well as the delivery of the lines actually inserted them into the public consciousness. One such quote comes from the middle of the movie.

After the Burn Book of the Plastics is distributed to the rest of the school, math teacher Sharon Norbury (played by writer Tina Fey) gathers all the girls in the gym to try to ease the tension. She does this by getting all of the girls to apologize to each other. One girl eventually goes on stage and gives a heartfelt speech about how she wants everything to go back to a time when everyone was nice to each other. This is when Damian (played by Daniel Franzese) yells out the quote.

Geek wisdom: It’s nice to be involved but make sure you’re actually wanted or actually a part of the situation before trying to insert yourself into it.

Cady and her friends (Janis and Damian) continue with their plot to take down The Plastics, the most popular and meanest clique of the school. One of the ways they plan to do it is to get Gretchen Wieners to turn on Regina George, the leader of the Plastics. One such way was to trick Gretchen into thinking Regina was cutting her out of the group. In order to do this, Damian starts distributing candy canes which were supposed to have come from the other students. And, apparently, Glen Coco, managed to score four candy canes…

Geek wisdom: When people do things that are spectacular, we do take these achievements for granted or, even worse, tell them what they did wasn’t anything special at all. Always remember to give props to people who deserve it as it does help them recognize that what they did was actually something to be admired.
