What '80s phrases and words do you want to see come back? I want people to say "Toss my cookies" and "sucker" again.

Oh my God. The announcer of the hockey game on TV just used the "NOT" phrase. I haven't heard it in forever!

Not a phrase but an action when you would hold your hand by your privates making a orifice shape. Remember that?

I once did the gesture that Dave does in Summer School to one of my teachers in year 6. Man, I got crucified for that.

Actually, the "toss my cookies" phrase started in the 1950's. I first became aware of it while reading J.D. Salinger's classic novel, Catcher In The Rye.

How about "Super"? People don't say that enough anymore.

I don't hear many people say "Dude" anymore.
I really like that word.

"Gag me with a spoon" - though, admittedly, I never actually heard anyone IRL use this back in the '80's - other than movie/TV show characters.

I remember in fifth grade ('88 or '89) some girls saying it. They added in "gag me out the door".

Remember these lines? Michelle Pfeiffer in Scarface: "It looks like somebody's nightmare" and the Blondie lyric: "She looks like she walked out of the middle of somebody's blues"? Does anyone remember lines like that? Did people actually say stuff similar to that and I'm just to young to remember?

I don't ever remember anyone using these terms in the '80's. Doesn't mean it didn't happen, however.

I do think that a lot of "phrases" we may have heard people say back in the day probably came from TV shows or movies, but weren't necessarily used by the average person on the street.
