Nickelodeon’s “All That” is a complete staple of 90’s throwback culture. It was immensely popular back in the day, featuring a revolving door of cast members who often appeared in other hit Nickelodeon shows. Years after the fact, fans still can’t get enough of it!
Many of these stars went on to play leading roles in their own spin-off shows and appeared on other shows for the Nick audience. Guest stars on “All That” have included Chris Farley, Josh Peck, Frankie Muniz, Miranda Cosgrove, and the Britney Spears! Ah, sweet nostalgia. We know thee too well.
If you were a fan of “All That” during its prime years, you probably remember some of its most hilarious quotes and punch lines. If not, let’s refresh that memory of yours! Here are the top ten “All That” quotes and why they still rock our socks after all this time.
7. “QUIET! THIS IS A LIBRARY!”
Yelled repeatedly by the Loud Librarian, this line belongs to the multi-talented Lori Beth Denberg. Can you say (or scream into a vacuum) irony?
6. “It’s nice to stop and smell flowers. It’s bad to stop and smell the old burrito.”
Another quote by Lori Beth Denberg. There is no denying these words of wisdom hold true after all these years… old burritos simply are not worth our precious noses’ time. Might as well leave it for the rats… or hamsters.
This line is from Randy, the chocolate-obsessed TV co-host played by a young Kenan Thompson. After removing a cavity, ending a painful 3-minute hiatus from his beloved chocolate, Randy bellows CHOC-O-NIFICENT! Use it at the candy shop, at Christmas, on your birthday, or whenever you feel like it.
4. “If someone gives you a kitten, it wouldn’t be nice to say, “Oh, thank you. I’m gonna name him Rump Face…
5. “Tell them about the time you slapped Hitler!”
Quote by Kyle Sullivan. Whoever it was that slapped Hitler, good job—though we think he deserved a bit more than a slap.
This quote wouldn’t be nearly as outlandish if Lump Maroon, played by Kel Mitchell, didn’t use it for every single answer on the fictitious game show “Family vs Family.” Well, we guess even a stopped clock is right twice a day.
2. “Dear Ashley. THAT’S ME!” (repeated)
This famous line comes from advice columnist Ashley, played by an alternatively sweet and aggressive young Amanda Bynes. When you hear it, you know to grab your noise-cancelling headphones, because things are about to get STINKIN’ LOUD.
1. “If there was an animal called a yabba-dabba, and you kept one in your backyard, you might accidentally step in yabba-dabba doo.”
Our top pick is another gem of wisdom from the incomparable Lori Beth Denberg, and a reminder to wear shoes in in yabba-dabba territory, even when you’re in your car.
