10 Words To Know Before Watching Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

Kimmy Schmidt lives in her own world. It's a cross between middle school, the year 1999, and present-day New York. Mix in the fact that she was held hostage by an insane (if handsome) preacher for 15 years, and you have what can only be described as a unique worldview — and the vocabulary to go with it.

Whether she's using outdated slang or just plain confusing phrases (hash brown, no filter), Kimmy's vocab is a delightful mess. And since season 2 of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is now streaming on Netflix, it's time for a refresher. Ahead, 10 Kimmyisms from season 1 — you might as well learn them now. There will be plenty more in season 2.
