This is not the time to dwell! Tuesday, April 8, is a big day for Empire Records enthusiasts as it's been deemed the 18th Rex Manning Day. In honor of the 1995 cult classic, here are 10 lines to quote as you're celebrating the "so sexy" occasion!
If you're unfamiliar with Empire Records, the flick takes place within 24 hours (except for the first scene) at a record store that is welcoming washed-up music heartthrob Rex Manning (Maxwell Caulfield). Meanwhile, they're also trying to do everything they can to stop the independent music store from becoming a chain named Music Town.
Now that we're all caught up, check out 10 classic quotes from the film:
