Trivia

Goofs

When Scott comes out of the locker room for the big game and talks to his coach, his face is dry. However, when he gets in the huddle, his face is obviously sweaty as if he's been playing, when in fact he's hasn't entered the game yet. See more »

Quotes

Scott Howard: I was with Stiles this afternoon.
Harold Howard: I know.
Scott Howard: You saw?
Harold Howard: Yeah, I saw, unless that was another werewolf doing a handstand on top of Stiles' wolfmobile and making a fool of himself.

GRRRRRREEEEEAAAATTTT Movie

I Wyatt Donnelly Consider myself as being one of the biggest Teenwolf fans in the world and if you have not seen it then shame on you it has a great cast and Michael J Fox is much better here than he is in Back to the future and Hollywood High it also contains the best soundtrack in the world with songs like win in the end and silhouette. The burman studios have done a great job making Michael look just like a teenwolf and also his dad Herald Howard if Teenwolf has taught me anything it is to respect everyone and now i am a better person i will leave with a suitable quote from the movie "It didn't miss me dad it landed right on my face" Wyatt Donnelly
