The 2004 flick, Mean Girls,  written by Tina Fey remains one of my favorite teen films of all times.  For the movie’s 10th anniversary, EW invited the film’s female leads to come together and dish about their memories, behind-the-scenes magic, and what they think their characters would be doing now.

These are some of my favorite Mean Girls quotes:

On Wednesdays we wear pink.” (I’ve actually written posts about this one).

“Gretchen, stop trying to make fetch happen! It’s not going to happen!”

I’m sorry I called you a gap-toothed bitch. It’s not your fault you’re so gap-toothed.
