Orange mocha frappuccino! 21 Zoolander quotes we still love

Zoolander is getting a sequel, you guys! This time around, it looks like Penelope Cruz will play a role alongside Hansel and Derek.

There’s been a lot of sequel announcements made this week, and here’s another: Penelope Cruz will be joining Ben Stiller in a sequel to Zoolander. While sequels aren’t exactly always my jam, I can say that I’m totally excited for Zoolander 2. The first installment was so perfectly funny, and to this day, most of us are still quoting lines from the film.

Pitch Perfect 2: 8 Aca-Awesome scenes from the first trailer

1. “Orange mocha frappuccino!”

In case you forgot, this particularly famous line, spoken by none other than Alexander Skårsgard, was meant to cure Derek of all of his ills, particularly when he feels the existential crush of his limitations, which brings us to:

2. “Really, really, really, really, really, ridiculously good-looking.”

3. “Earth to Meekus…”

Ben Stiller struggled to direct intimate sex scenes

We’ve all “Earthed to” someone at least once in our lives, but if we grew up in a decade later than the ’80s, it was likely due to Zoolander.

4. “Can we cut it out with all the ‘Earth-tos’, please?”

Of course, we all had that killjoy friend who’d end up quoting Christine Taylor as Matilda Jeffries, inadvertently or not.

5. “I feel like I’m taking crazy pills!”

Will Ferrell is a comedic genius

We’ve all felt like we’ve been taking crazy pills at one point or another. So many people quote this line that I have to wonder how many of them got it from this movie. Also, is that a trash bag ascot Mugatu’s wearing?

6. “I’m sorry, did my pin get in the way of your ass?”

Speaking of the oft-quoted Will Ferrell as Mugatu, the sinister fashion designer, there was this little piece of snark.

7. “Are you not aware that I get farty and bloated…?”

More Starbucks-style humor from the movie that brought us the nastiest sounding frappuccino.

8. “That [blank] is so hot right now.”

We all loved the simplistic endorsement of Hansel, didn’t we? That’s why we use it on everything.

9. “It’s a walk-off!”

Of course, with the introduction of Derek’s nemesis came the introduction of the rivalry between Zoolander and Hansel, which resulted in… a walk-off!

Arguably what made this movie so great was its takedown of how absolutely tone-deaf and ridiculous the fashion industry can sometimes be, and that included Mugatu’s use of vagrants as inspiration.

11. “You think you’re too cool for school.”

In Hansel’s defense, he really was too cool for school.

12. “Don’t you know I’m loco?”

After Hansel pulled his underwear from his pants during that walk-off, we all did.

13. “You can Dere-lick my balls.”

Admittedly, I’m a big fan of a good genitals joke, so I always thought this was a pretty great burn.

14. “I can Dere-lick my own balls, thank you very much.”

Of course, Zoolander’s comeback wasn’t as sick, but still pretty funny.

15. “Who am I?”

After he lost the walk-off, Derek had to do some soul-searching. Who can’t relate to that?

16. “I think I’ve got the black lung, Pop.”

I don’t know about you guys, but this is my go-to line when I have a chest cold.

18. “MERMAN!”

19. “You can read minds?”

We all had to giggle a little at how blind these two were to Matilda’s struggle.

20. Magnum! Blue Steel! El Tigre!

21. Of course, sometimes, the best thing to say is nothing

If you say you don’t do this when Wham! comes on the radio, then you are a lying liar full of lies.
