Let's just take a moment to #flashbackfriday and think about the genius that was The Brady Bunch Movie and its even better follow up, A Very Brady Sequel.

Well, in the ultimate example of what the Internet does best, people have rediscovered the brilliance of the movie and Jan's middle-child syndrome misery. "Marcia Marcia Marcia!" was the name of the game, and poor Jan just couldn't live up to her perfect sister's (Christine Taylor) life, except when it came to boyfriends.

Who could forget when Jan spilled that she was dating non-existent George Glass, a figment of her imagination and a glass of Tropicana orange juice? No one could forget, and now the Internet has come back strong by making a meme of the famous scene when Marcia curtly replies, "That's funny, I've never heard of a George Glass at our school." But school really sounded more like "sküle."

The meme instantly went viral, and now Jennifer Elise Cox has something to say about it. Talking to Vulture, Cox admitted that she is really enjoying her new Internet fame.

"[Teenagers] trolled me, and then I saw it and I loved it! I just loved it," she told the website. "My husband said to me, 'You've got to be in a meme if you want to be anywhere.' And I was like, 'Wow, I feel so lucky that I ended up in one.'"

While filming the classics movies, both Taylor and Cox went "Method," meaning they didn't ever break character. Because Marcia was basically a bully, her meanness never relented.

"Yes [she was mean]," she said. "I want to give Christine props: She and I would study the characters and she said 'sküle.' That was her thing. She came up with sküle."

The director didn't want her to say it that way though, but thankfully Cox and Taylor got their way! Jan was able to convince the director that she met George at sküle.

When news broke that there was a new phone app called "Invisible Boyfriend" that allows user to pay $24.99 to land the perfect (fake) boyfriend or girlfriend, the George Glass references resurfaced once again!
