As the days of 2014 dwindle away, it is our responsibility to take a look at the one of the most significant cinematic offerings from 30 years ago, Revenge of the Nerds. While National Lampoon’s Animal House took college humor to one plateau, Revenge of the Nerds raised it to another level. When a movie introduces characters to the modern lexicon such as Booger, Lamar, and Ogre, there are certain quotes that are just ingrained in your mind after one, ten, or fifty viewings. Here we take a look at 10 Revenge of the Nerds quotes that you should still be using in everyday conversation.
