@layniebug I did better on the '90s, and I'm the same age. Just to tell you all, for the one with "what you talkin' 'bout, ____" I would have said Willie, only because of the awesomeness of Dark Shadows. Johnny Depp shares my fascination.

It's pathetic that the only quote made by the President is the one that's least known.

Maybe that's because despite the current hype to the contrary, his tenure as president was, in fact, forgettable

I grew up saying "growdy to the max" in the late 90's/00's I heard "What you talkin bout Willis" on Hannah Montana And I know "don't hate me cuz I'm beautiful" from that Pretty Girl Rock song. I kept thinking, how is this an 80's quiz if I remember these things.

I think I know the two that you are talking about, but they were being said all through the 80's, as were all these phrases. Took me about 15 seconds to do this quiz, growing up in the 80's.
