‘Barbie’s 25 most WTF — and hilarious — quotes

The Barbie script is genius. So genius in reality that for the previous week I’ve unapologetically been calling my dwelling “the mojo dojo casa home,” completely saying The Godfather as Issa Rae did within the movie, and quoting Ken’s (Ryan Gosling) distaste for the patriarchy’s exclusion of horses at any alternative I get. 

The Barbie film has left a pink handprint on all of our hearts. I personally cried, laughed, and screamed for the whole lot of its runtime. And whereas there’s rather a lot in regards to the film to fall in love with, from its Easter eggs all the best way to its lovely bench scene, there are a pair — okay, rather a lot — of one-liners from the movie I hope all of us quote eternally.

So with out additional ado, let’s hop into Barbie’s pink convertible, make a journey down reminiscence lane, and relish within the movie’s biggest, funniest, most underrated, and even most surprising strains.

1. “Yay area!” — Barbie

Everybody greets one another within the morning in BarbieLand, even the Astronaut Barbies all the best way up in area. The one proper reply to a bunch of Astronaut Barbies waving you a superb morning? “Yay area!” So succinctly put. So good. So humorous. I really like pleasure like Barbie (Margot Robbie) loves science.

2. “NooOOOOOOOOooooo!!!!!!” — Allan 

The great thing about this line is in its supply. Allan (Michael Cera) belts out this visceral, screeching, unapologetically empathetic “NoooooOOOOOOO!!” when Ken (Ryan Gosling) has an enormous seaside accident — in any case, he is Ken’s buddy. And whereas it’s no secret that Allan is Barbie‘s biggest character, this one “NOOOOO” kickstarted our absolute adoration for him.

3. “And what a superb job you do at seaside.” — Barbie

Whereas Physician Barbies deal with Ken after his surf accident, he goes on a passionate tangent explaining that his job’s actually exhausting. Ken’s not a lifeguard. He’s not a surfer. His job is simply seaside and it’s SO exhausting. However Barbie (Hari Nef) reminds him, oh so empathetically, that he does an amazing job at seaside. 10/10 line supply but once more for essentially the most absurd line ever. Seaside is now totally an actual job. 

4. “I don’t need you right here.” — Barbie.  

Barbie says this to Ken proper earlier than ladies’ night time, and she or he’s so proper for it. I want I may bear such brutal honesty in my very own life. 

5. “Hurry up, Barbie, the president’s right here!” — Physician Barbie

“I’m. You’re welcome!” — President Barbie

Whereas Barbie tries to do away with Ken, the opposite Barbies at ladies’ night time remind her that they’ve some critical slumber partying to get to. The president’s even right here! And she or he is aware of they need to all be honored! President Barbie (Issa Rae) 4ever.

6. “Cease it, Ken.” — Barbie

Kens aren’t allowed to retch at Barbie getting flat ft, solely Barbies are allowed to do this. This throwaway line from Barbie (Sharon Rooney) is perhaps fast, however its message is irrevocably the center of the movie. Cease it Ken (Kingsley Ben-Adir), severely. 

7. “Fantastic, get cellulite. I don’t care.” — Bizarre Barbie

Of Bizarre Barbie’s (Kate McKinnon) many iconic strains within the movie, this particular one broke me. Whereas Barbie’s reluctant to go to the actual world, Bizarre Barbie reminds her of what’s at stake — cellulite. I simply…yeah. A ten/10 WTF second. A ten/10 tongue-in-cheek second. It’s unimaginable simply how a lot this film made enjoyable of itself. 

8. “I’d prefer to see what sort of nude blob he’s packing beneath his denims.” — Bizarre Barbie

In the event you get it, you get it. In the event you don’t, you don’t.


Wait, did ‘Barbie’ reduce a romance between Ryan Gosling’s Ken and Bizarre Barbie?

9. “Don’t blame me. Blame Mattel; they make the foundations.” — Bizarre Barbie 

One other Bizarre Barbie gem that I can’t imagine really made it into the movie. I really feel like its layers converse for themselves. 

10. “What if there’s seaside?!” — Ken 

When Ken turns stowaway on Barbie’s journey to the Actual World, he argues to remain by questioning, “What if there’s seaside?”

Legitimate. What if there is seaside?! How may Barbie ever seaside by herself? Barbies could also be astronauts, Nobel Prize winners, physicists, and president, however seaside is firmly Ken turf. Thanks Ken to your very essential issues

11. “I’ve all of the genitals.” — Ken 

Neglect the nude blob, Ken has genitals BTW. When a crew of development employees rudely hit on Barbie in the actual world, she, in good grace, reminds them that she and Ken don’t have any genitals. However Ken’s having none of it. In actual fact, he claims he has all of the genitals. Each single one.

I’m eternally indebted to Greta Gerwig for penning this script.

14. “She thinks I’m a fascist? I don’t management the railways or the move of commerce!” — Barbie 

I don’t understand how Margot Robbie mentioned this line whereas crying and retaining a straight face. It’s, no doubt, essentially the most underrated second in your entire movie. She doesn’t management the railways guys!!! OR the move of commerce!!!!

As Ken throws out Barbie’s garments to make room for his mojo dojo casa home, Gloria (America Ferrera)  reminds him that the gorgeous outfits he’s throwing out aren’t to be handled like trash. Barbie’s sparkly ice skating gown? How DARE he?! They’re ARCHIVAL, Ken.

NSYNC’s music video for “It’s Gonna Be Me” walked so Barbie may run.
