The 2004 movie “Mean Girls” was a major success upon its release and more than 16 years later, the film has earned a cult following with fans still including some of the funniest quotes in regular conversation.

When Cady Heron (Lindsay Lohan) joined the Plastics, the most popular clique in school, Regina George (Rachel McAdams), Karen Smith (Amanda Seyfried), and Gretchen Wieners (Lacey Chabert) taught her everything she needed to know about being a high school icon.

While “Mean Girls” Day celebrates the film, it is celebrated on Oct. 3 because of the very important conversation Cady had with her crush Aaron Samuels (Jonathan Bennett).

“I began talking to Aaron more and more. On October 3rd, he asked me what day it was,” she explained in a voiceover before answering his question.

“It’s October 3rd,” she replied.
