If you are a child of the 80’s, this means you had the privilege of being a teen in the 90’s. And now you’re probably in your 20’s, feeling older than you are…what a drag. So, take a moment to relive your teens via some 80’s movie quote and 90’s movies quotes.

If you see an 80’s movie or 90’s movie not quoted here anywhere that you think should be, then please take up the responsibility of commenting with the name of the movie, and perhaps even your favorite quote that you’d suggest to be added.

Choose good health, low cholesterol, and dental insurance. Choose fixed interest mortgage repayments. Choose a starter home. Choose your friends. Choose leisurewear and matching fabrics. Choose DIY and wondering who the fuck you are on a Sunday morning. Choose sitting on that couch watching mind-numbing, spirit crushing game shows, stuffing junk food into your mouth.
