If you haven't seen Clueless, watch it. It's 97 minutes of California gold filled with lots of plaid, knee socks, and mansions. But, more importantly, Clueless is rife with catchphrases. From "Ugh! As if!" to "Whatever!" (best done with a "W" hand gesture for added emphasis), we've all drawn from this "valley girl" speak at one point or another. Clueless gives great food advice, too, like to always have cookies baking when company's coming over. Or do as Cher does, and just throw a whole roll of cookie dough in the oven. Watch the movie, make these nine perfectly Clueless recipes, do whatever. We're Audi.
