To ask why I can't sit with you?

I keep seeing house makeovers recently with an illuminated sign saying "You can't sit with us."

What's that all about? It doesn't sound very homely.

Is it a quote from a TV show?

It's from Mean Girls.

Oh God, it's akin to those stupid eyelashes on cars, isn't it? envy

Quaagars Wed 05-May-21 17:51:57

Because you don't go here!
(Don't forget to wear pink on Wednesday if we do occasionally let you lol)

Quaagars Wed 05-May-21 17:53:26

Oh and yes, it's from the film Mean Girls. (I assume it is, anyway as that's what I automatically thought on just reading the title and before clicking on the thread!)
Great film, get it watched grin

OK, I just Googled 'Mean Girls' and it appears to be a teen film from over 15 years ago... still not sure why it's suddenly a fashion in decor.

Where on earth are you seeing these?
It's basically (almost) advertising that the owner of the sign is bitchy! Sort of the evil twin of Live, Love, Laugh.

Is this an insta thing?

Mean Girls, the original Meme Generator! Brilliant film, so funny and always relatable.

Yep, quote from the film "Mean Girls". If you wear the wrong clothes on the wrong day you can't sit with the popular girls at lunch.

How have you not heard of it, never mind not seen it??!!

Mean Girls hasn't just suddenly popped back into existence, it's a huge part of pop-culture. 'Stop trying to make fetch happen' or 'it's October 3rd' is no different from 'he's her lobster' or 'we were on a break!'.

Mean girls is a great film!

Ah. So it's bullying then. Lovely.

Who doesn't want a quote like that in their house? confused

I've never heard of it

OneCalamerra Wed 05-May-21 18:05:23

Yeah it’s not really bullying to be fair - Regina (the queen bee who is very bitchy) makes a set of rules including that her clique can only wear sweatpants on Fridays, and then tries to sit with them in sweatpants on a different day and they stand up to her saying the rules apply equally to her.

It’s a moment of empowerment of the “follower” girls standing up to her, rather than bullying.

I may be over invested in this film.

NiceGerbil Wed 05-May-21 18:05:46

Huh?

Because they've just farted would be my guess grin

More of s warning than an instruction I reckon

Quaagars Wed 05-May-21 18:06:48

Oh FFS lol
I think you really need to watch the film to appreciate the quote.
Yes, The Plastics are bullies.
Which is why you cheer when they start being taken down lol

???!!!

I only recognise the last one!

I'm 47. I'm guessing my parents wouldn't have a clue about any of this tbh grin

Says someone who obviously hasn’t seen the film so doesn’t understand the context in which it was said!

She doesn’t even go here!

Pumperthepumper Wed 05-May-21 18:07:32

Ohhhhhhh this thread is going to turn into a ‘I’ve never even HEARD of Harry Potter’, I can just feel it.

Rewis Wed 05-May-21 18:07:42

The film is upthere as a teen classic with Breakfas club, Clueless etc.

It's just a funny pop culture references. You go Glen Coco.

Mammyloveswine Wed 05-May-21 18:08:26

Wow that's so Fetch! You go Glen Coco!

Quaagars Wed 05-May-21 18:08:28

grin

Now now, I think we should all just bake a cake with rainbows and smiles lol

OwlBeThere Wed 05-May-21 18:08:45

It’s not bullying @Tambora the entire point of mean girls is the mean girls learn that being mean gets you nowhere. The sign is just a quote from the film in a jokey way. Nothing more. It’s no different to having a friends sign up saying ‘we were on a break’ or something.
