All I Really Need to Know I Learned From "Clueless"

  • Old people can be so sweet.
  • Don't date a man who dresses better than you. What would you bring to the relationship?
  • That Polonius guy, not Hamlet, said "To thine own self be true."
  • Sitting with your legs crossed towards someone is an unequivocal sex invite.
  • Street slang is an increasingly valid form of expression. Most of the feminine pronouns do have mocking but not necessarily misogynistic undertones.
  • Don't bother learning to park--everywhere you go has valet.
  • Anything you can do to draw attention to your mouth is good.
  • It is one thing to spark up a doobie and get laced at parties, but it is quite another to be fried all day.
  • It does not say R.S.V.P. on the Statue of Liberty.
  • 'Tis a far far better thing doing stuff for other people.
  • Do a lap before you commit to a location.
  • As if!

Welcome back Petra. I miss you. Did you first see Clueless with me or were you too young? I remember seeing Ten Things I Hate About You several times in that theater in Jakarta but I think that was after Clueless came out.

perfect timing. i just had a conversation that went something like
---do people do that?
--well, they did in clueless (i said as i realized how stupid that sounded)

Hurray for a post from Petra--and on one of my favorite movies. I wonder if I could get away with reading EMMA with an 11th grade class of mostly bright girls. . . .
