Since the film release, this famous quote has been widely used around the world, on children’s t-shirts, and other film merchandise. The well-known phrase has even been used for book titles, for song lyrics, and even by real life astronauts! While testing experiments in zero gravity, astronauts used this phrase when sending a Buzz Lightyear figure into space.
“On Wednesdays, we wear pink”
One of the most quotable films from the 2000s is Mean Girls (2004) starring Lindsay Lohan. As Cady Heron, she joins Northshore High which is ruled by the A-list cliche ‘The Plastics’. When you join The Plastics there are many rules to follow, one of which being “On Wednesdays, we wear pink”. It has since become one of the most popular movie quotes and has been branded all over jumpers, tops, and sweaters. Some movie fans might even go as far as wearing pink on Wednesdays themselves! If you’re looking for stylish pink items to wear, you can even shop the look from the new Pink Casino TV advert that was launched in 2019, for smart pink blazers and stylish pink trousers.
“ I am Groot”
As of 2008, the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) has dominated the film industry with great comic book characters such as Spider-Man, Captain America, and Iron Man. With film after film being so successful, there are many favourite moments in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that fans love. For Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) there is one quote that sticks in everyone’s mind: “I am Groot”. Voiced by Vin Diesel, the character ‘Groot’ is lacking immensely in the vocabulary of his speech and this worked tremendously for the character. “I am Groot” is not just one line from the loyal tree, it’s all the tree’s lines in the movie. Groot fast became an adorable sensation with fans, transforming the character into a celebrated figure in the MCU.
