On July 19th, "Clueless" celebrates its 17th anniversary. Yes, that means the movie came out in 1995 -- feel old yet?
What would the last 17 years have been like without Cher, Dionne and Tai (RIP Brittany Murphy) and their iconic one-liners? These "Clueless" characters taught us a lot in our formative years -- how else would we have known that "Ren & Stimpy" are "way existential," that "sporadic means once in a while" or that you should never ever "skin a collie to make [your] backpack"?
Among the wisdom Cher and company imparted, some of the most valuable had to do with love and sex. For instance, when your boyfriend calls you "woman," it may "have mocking but not necessarily misogynistic undertones." Also, your friend might call you on being a "virgin who can't drive," but that doesn't mean you aren't lovable (as if). Furthermore, there is no reason you can't be picky when it comes to love and still be the most popular girl in school.
To thank Cher Horowitz for showing us how to navigate being "totally butt crazy in love" -- even if it was with her sort-of brother -- we've compiled a short compendium of relationship lessons we learned from "Clueless."
