With this week's news that the '90s game show Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego? may be returning to PBS, we got to thinking about another favorite show from the era: All That. There's one regular sketch from the the '90s kids' answer to SNL that's sure to withstand the test of time — "Vital Information For Your Everyday Life," starring Lori Beth Denberg. Lori's completely random, sometimes useful, and generally hilarious advice still holds true today. Let's take a look at how we can apply her vital information to our love lives.
- "At fine restaurants, it's considered rude to butter yourself."
- "If you're on a first date with somebody, never stick your finger in their spaghetti, twirl it, and holler, 'Lookie, date, I'm makin' sketti circles!'"
- "If you're telling a guy a story and he starts to choke, don't say, 'Look, dude, I'm right in the middle of my story.'"
- "Breaking up is hard to do. Breaking a dozen eggs with a sledgehammer is fun."

- "Girls don't like it when boys take their sandwich and run away screaming, 'Hey, look who's got your sandwich now.'"
- "Never kick a man when he's down. Just look at him and scream, 'Hey, get up, you down-on-the-ground weirdo.'"
