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".

Just thought of two: calling someone a "jerk off" and "make it".
