1. You cannot help but bust out singing "It's cookie time, it's cookie time, it's cookie, ti-ime!" whenever you pass a girl scout cookie stand.

Sure, "Troop Beverly Hills" technically came out in 1989, but let's be honest, any decade would be happy to claim it. Now come on, let's sing it together, "a box of them would be so ni-i-ice."

2. You loved Lauryn Hill when she was puttin' it down with Pras and Wyclef in the Fugees, but you loved her just as much when she was killin' it with Whoopi.

You go, Rita Louise Watson! ("Sister Act 2, Back in the Habit," 1993)

3. When you went to France for the first time, you had to go to McDonald's to order a Royale with Cheese.

And thanks to 1995's iconic "Pulp Fiction," you ate it sitting amongst a sea of other backpackers who had excitedly ordered it, as well.

4. After "Fight Club" (1999), you can't help but use a variation of "First rule of Fight Club…" whenever the sweet, sweet opportunity presents itself, which is more often than you may think.

E.g. First Rule of Moms Who Still Fantasize About Tyler Durden. Don't Talk About Moms Who Still Fantasize About Tyler Durden. (Or something like that.)

5. You are tempted to watch "The Sixth Sense" (1999) again to see if it's just as good as you remember it.

But you're kinda scared.

6. You've done this somewhere. Admit it.

And you thought you were being original and funny when you did it. Admit it. ("Titanic," 1997)

7. There's a small part of you that feels unjustifiably confident that you could stave off two home burglars with a can of paint and some broken Christmas tree ornaments.

There's also a part of you that, looking back at "Home Alone" (1990), thinks, "Wow, that movie was super violent."

8. You still think Alicia Silverstone is queen.

And you still dream about having her cool computerized clothes closet from "Clueless" (1995).

9. You're still trying to forget about Nicolas Cage's hair in "Con Air" (1997).

But you also love to remember it.

10. You miss the immature, knucklehead version of Adam Sandler. You know, the one who drunkenly chases a 10-foot tall taunting penguin.

And please don't say you've forgotten about the scene when Chris Farley makes out with said penguin in "Billy Madison" (1995).

11. You actually know where the phrase "Bye, Felicia" came from.

"How do you like them apples," cocky Harvard douche bag?

15. This notebook toting tomboy in "Harriet the Spy" (1996) made us feel cool to be different.

You always loved Robin Williams, but "Mrs. Doubtfire" (1993) made you love him to a whole new level, even as ridiculous as the movie really was.
