When I think of Brittany Murphy one movie comes to mind.
Clueless came out in 1995, my freshman year of high school. I loved it. I'm sure I've seen this movie several dozen times. I think for about six months I watched it with friends every weekend. What could be more enjoyable than rich witty teenagers?
I think it was 1997 before I quit using the line 'I broke in my purple clogs' every time someone asked what I did that day. Whenever the topic of driving/ cars/ driver's ed came up I was sure to mention that 'I fully intend to brake for small animals.' (You can find more Clueless quotes here.) Fortunately Billy Madison came out that same year. So if someone rolled their eyes in annoyance at my constant Clueless quoting, I could shut them down with 'Stop looking at me, Swan.'
I'm sure the media will have all sorts of things to say about Brittany Murphy and the way she died. I'll ignore all of it, and remember her fondly as part of the movie that I loved so much in 1995.
Did anyone else spend that year trying to be Clueless?
