"It's the 90s"
Thank you, folks at Everything is Terrible, for compiling the below embedded video. I'd kind of forgotten that back in the day (damn I feel old—the nineties already has "back in the day" status) movie and TV characters would use the phrase "it's the 90s" as a catch-all, meaning basically: "Hey, we're living in exciting/crazy modern times with the technology and whatnot. People are liberated; anything goes" or just, you know, "get with the times." Luckily for humanity, "it's the aughts" and "it's the teens" never caught on; and this phrase was allowed to die a quick painless death.
