Five Best '90s Catch Phrases in Honor of Nickelodeon's Retro Programming

Melissa Joan Hart in Clarissa Explains It All
Nickelodeon is bringing back the '90s. TeenNick's new "The 90s Are All That" series begins this Monday at midnight and will run until 4 a.m. We haven't been this excited over TV news in years. The channel is resurrecting shows like All That, Kenan and Kel, Double Dare, Rocko's Modern Life, Clarissa Explains It All, Doug, and so many more.

These shows used to seem like the coolest shows ever. All That was funnier than SNL and Are You Afraid of the Dark scared us worse than any horror movie could now. After watching a few choice YouTube clips, we thought that once the nostalgia wore off, we would be bored. But we as watched them, the part that really made us flip out were the catch phrases. Hearing them again (and in the original context) was like reuniting with a best friend. In honor of TeenNick's nostalgic programing, here are the five best catch phrases from the throwback lineup.

5. "A baby's gotta do what a baby's gotta do." - Tommy Pickle, Rugrats
Tommy Pickle was badass. He was still in diapers and he was cooler than everyone we knew. You might not start saying it in public, but deep down, you know the truth. Next time you're getting ready to tell your parents to stop dropping by unannounced, you'll be mumbling it under your breath.

4. "Woogidi woogidi woogidi" - Rocket Power

It was the gang's secret handshake, and the most memorable thing about the show. We still bust it out every once in a while. And now that the show is coming back, we're sure "once in a while" is going to turn into "all of the time." Because what could be cooler than waving your fingers while making incoherent noises?

Unfortunately, the Internet has failed us. We didn't think it was possible. There are no videos of the handshake. Anywhere. But don't worry. As soon as they start rebroadcasting Rocket Power, we know the clips will pop up.

3. "Move it, football head!" - Helga, Hey Arnold!

The meanest girl around, little Helga was in love with Arnold. So naturally, she bullied him to no end. Because that's what you do when you like someone, right? We used to yell this when we were annoyed at someone, but we've moved on from playground scuffles. We can see ourselves yelling this at jerks in traffic though, with a few expletives thrown in for good measure.

2. "Welcome to Good Burger, home of the Good Burger, can I take your order?" - Kel, All That

One of the best skits on All That, Kel Mitchell's role as the dumbest fast food employee in history was eventually turned into Goodburger the movie.

1. "Who loves orange soda?"
"Kel loves orange soda!:
"Is it true?"
"I do, I do, I do, I do-ooooo
- Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchel, Kenan and Kel

Kel loves orange soda. We all know it. Kenan and Kel's exchange is probably the most remembered of all of the '90s shows. Can you imagine this happening on a show now? It's not politically correct, but who cares? We were 10-years-old and all that mattered was Kel loved orange soda.
