Since it’s debut, American Horror Story has developed a loyal following, and each season brings forth new stories and fresh ammunition for some seriously dark and twisted jokes. Plus, it’s impossible to completely avoid the series on the Internet, especially because of the rampant gifs and memes that are floating around. These creative visuals have certainly transformed certain aspects of the show into a true phenomenon. Here’s a list of 10 stand out words that American Horror Story fans will truly appreciate. Warning: There are some spoilers ahead, so proceed with caution!
Every character wanted to be the next Supreme on Coven because she’s the baddest witch around. After an intense season full of betrayal, heightened emotional drama, and gnarly murders, the right woman came out on top. No one messes with the all-powerful Supreme because if they do, they’ll most likely end up dead.
2. Name Game
“Judy! Judy, Judy bo Budy Banana fanna fo Fudy Fee fy mo Mudy, Judy!” Probably one of the most random and surprisingly pleasant moments of Asylum came thanks to the Name Game. Who knows what was really happening here, but the perpetually confused expressions and declarations of love for bananas sure got everyone excited and laughing. At this point, all the characters had gone bonkers, and although Lana tried her best to fight off the beat, she ended up rolling with it because no one puts Sister Jude in the corner! Come on, it’s impossible to get this song out of your head.
Let’s give a round of applause to the mystical properties of Benadryl. Thanks to Spalding’s uninformed and hilarious advice, Delphine thought she could kill the immortal Marie with some Benadryl. It’s safe to say that she was the only one who was surprised when nothing happened.
4. Surprise, Bitch
The gifs and memes for this scene took over the Internet more pervasively than any other American Horror Story scene ever. These short but sweet words were uttered by Madison Montgomery when she returned from the dead. Madison’s resurrection was truly as shocking as the revelation that Dan Humphrey was the real Gossip Girl.
According to Dr. Thredson, this is the “perfect mommy snack.” Um, gross! Doesn’t he know that you’re not supposed to discuss mommy issues at the dinning table? Poor Lana banana had to pretend that she liked this fancy version of a grilled cheese. We feel you, girl. That sandwich looks super nasty, but eat-crying can also be oddly satisfying.
6. Jessica Lange
Jessica Lange was the flawless head bitch for four seasons, and she was very good at it. No one can deliver lines of insulting dialogue quite like she can, and Lange even mastered the art of the eye roll better than any teen queen. Plus, if you ever crossed any of her characters, you’d be dead. Well, even if you didn’t cross her, she would find a reason to get you killed. Plus, who can forget her epic meltdowns and insanely fashionable outfits? Thanks for the memories! You are missed most ardently.
Clearly Evan Peters is a talented actor with an affinity for playing beautifully insane characters. Sure, most of them are quite weepy, but none of them were as mopey as Tate Langdon. The morbid cutie was definitely a handful to say the least, but that’s alright! Peters always manages to bring a whole new level of mania and handsomeness to each season.
When thinking of Dandy Mott, Taylor Swift‘s “Blank Space” lyrics immediately flash to the forefront. “’Cause, darling, I’m a nightmare dressed like a daydream.” Dandy was a major psycho, but pointing that out to him was clearly a big mistake. When his mother sent him to therapy, Dandy was not happy. He later killed her and then pleasantly bathed in her blood. To be honest, that just sounds like a lot of work and a total mess to clean up. Like, have you ever heard of a spa, Dandy?
9. Checking In
As soon as you check into the Hotel Cortez, you’re basically dead. So do yourself a favor and run out the door as fast as you can!
The ladies on the show sure like to smoke forlornly and constantly. At this point, a cigarette is basically the equivalent of an aspirin. Most of the scenes involving these beautiful women show them smoking as they simultaneously reflect on their tragic lives.
