Anyone who is currently attending this esteemed university should have, or at one point have had in their possession, an orange tape (or DVD, I guess) that contains one of the greatest movies of our lifetime, The Rugrats Movie. On November 20th, this animated triumph turns 20   old. To celebrate, here are the 20 best quotes from the movie:

1: “Okay, maybe real fire isn’t the best idea for a children’s toy.”

2: “Young Tammy, Baby Dale, the twins Bill and Jill, Little Chunky, and poor sweet Amelia all vanished without a trace.”

3: “Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of yum!”

4: “Okey-Dokie Jones never goes back!”

5: “In my day, we had plenty of fun just throwing rocks at each other. Big bag of dirt clods, that’s what the kids want.”

6: “Dang flabbit! Can’t a man work in his own basement without getting barbecued?”

7: “You dumb babies got a lot to learn about the facts of lice.”

8: “A baby is a gift, a gift from a Bob!”

9: “Sponsatility.”

10: “We’re taking Dil back to the hopsicle, Tommy. We’re gonna get your moneys back.”

11: “This is more fun than picking noses!”

12: “Uh, Mrs. Pickles, did your son have any enemies?… Any underworld or mob connections?”

13: “Hey, leave him alone. He’s not a nanner.”

14: “That’s it! I’ll get the lizard to wish him back into a people!”

15: “There’s dragons out there! I’m a park ranger, not a knight of the round table! Go find someone with a lance!”

16: “Hang onto your diapies, babies!”

17: “I can’t believe you left them with your father! The man slept through Pearl Harbor for heaven’s sake!”

18: “Take it away, take it away!”

19: “Look who’s talking, Mr. Chocolate Pants.”

Ode To Headphones

It was my birthday a few days ago, I know, very exciting! Not really. I’m not a big birthday person. I mean, its cool to think about everyone celebrating you for the day, but I just find it to be fairly awkward.  Like, everyone I have a pointless streak with on Snapchat (who I’ve never […]
