Quotes

Wooderson: All right, all right, all right.

Wooderson: That's what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older, they stay the same age.

Wooderson: Man, it's the same bullshit they tried to pull in my day. If it ain't that piece of paper, there's some other choice they're gonna try and make for you. You gotta do what Randall Pink Floyd wants to do man. Let me tell you this, the older you do get the more rules they're gonna try to get you to follow. You just gotta keep livin' man, L-I-V-I-N.

Pink: All I'm saying is that if I ever start referring to these as the best years of my life - remind me to kill myself.

Dawson: Well, all I'm saying is that I want to look back and say that I did I the best I could while I was stuck in this place. Had as much fun as I could while I was stuck in this place. Played as hard as I could while I was stuck in this place... Dogged as many girls as I could while I was stuck in this place.

Mrs. Kramer, Mitch's Mother: Have you been drinking?

Mitch: No

[falls on bed and can't even take off both boots]

Mrs. Kramer, Mitch's Mother: Are you drunk?

Mitch: [clearly drunk] Psshh

Slater: Behind every good man there is a woman, and that woman was Martha Washington, man, and everyday George would come home, she would have a big fat bowl waiting for him, man, when he come in the door, man, she was a hip, hip, hip lady, man.

Cynthia: Maybe the 80s will be like radical or something. I figure we'll be in our 20s and it cant' get worse.

Jodi: Is that a beer in your hand?

Mitch: Why, yes it is.

Jodi: Have you had more than one of those?

Mitch: Few. No one's counting.

Jodi: When were you supposed to be home?

Mitch: Few hours ago I think.

Jodi: Thats bullshit. That's major bullshit. You know I was barely let out at your age?

Mitch: Aww.

Jodi: Aww. Well don't think she won't be waiting up for you. And she is tough. I've been through it.

Mitch: Just don't ask her to take it easy on me.

Shavonne Wright: You're an asshole.

Dawson: I know I am.

O'Bannion: You are an embarrassment to the game of pool and should be glad I even let you play at my table.

Wooderson: Yeah, well, listen. You ought to ditch the two geeks you're in the car with now and get in with us. But that's all right, we'll worry about that later. I will see you there. All right?

Tony: Nothing like piling on old pancakes and syrup after a night of beer drinking.

Darla: Lick me, all of you.

Slater: This place used to be off limits, man, 'cause some drunk freshman fell off. He went right down the middle, smacking his head on every beam, man. I hear it doesn't hurt after the first couple though. Autopsy said he had one beer, how many did you have?

Mitch: Four.

Slater: You're dead, man, you're so dead. Look at the blood stains right there.

Freshman Girl: Will you marry me?

Dawson: I don't know. What's in it for me?

Freshman Girl: Anything you want?

Dawson: Anything?

Freshman Girl: Anything.

Dawson: [opening his mouth wide] Go like this. Do you spit or swallow?

Freshman Girl: Whatever you like.

Dawson: Whatever I like? I would definitely marry you.

Wooderson: Say, man, you got a joint?

Mitch: No, not on me, man.

Wooderson: It'd be a lot cooler if you diid.

Pink: Marijuana on one. Reefer on two.

Slater: I'm letting you have shotgun. But cuz it's cuz only 'cuz I'm goin' inside.

Wooderson: Let me tell you what Melba Toast is packin' right here, all right. We got 4:11 Positrac outback, 750 double pumper, Edelbrock intake, bored over 30, 11 to 1 pop-up pistons, turbo-jet 390 horsepower. We're talkin' some fuckin' muscle.

Pink: I may play ball next fall, but I will never sign that. Now me and my loser friends are gonna head out to buy Aerosmith tickets. Top priority of the summer.

Tony: So your earlier offer still stands?

Sabrina Davis: What should I say? Whatever you like.

Pink: It was vicious. Had some pretty cool seniors though. Like, they'd beat the hell out of you and then get you drunk, that sort of thing.

Mitch: Cool.

John Hirschfelder: I was getting there! I had my hand under her shirt!

Tommy Houston: Hear that, he was 'getting there'. Son, you wouldn't even know what to do if you got there.

Simone: You act like you're so oppressed. You guys are kings of the school. What are you bitching about?

Pink: Wait a minute. Who put the keg all the way out here in the woods?

Jodi: I dunno. This is where they said it would be

Pink: Really?

Jodi: Really? We don't need the beer anyway.

JodiPink: [start making out]

Dawson: Not bad for a little freshman but you gotta watch out for older girls

Melvin Spivey: Hey. Come here. We just wanna know something. You gonna be fucking that tonight, or are you gonna be a little wimp?

Mitch: [laughs] How do you know I haven't already

Melvin Spivey: [clearly pleased, laughs] Go along man, I think its past your bedtime!

Cynthia: I'd like to quit thinking of the present, like right now, as some minor, insignificant preamble to somethin' else.

Mike: Don't air raid for that bitch, I hate that shit. It's like that Clint fucker in front of all his friends. Huh? Huh mother fucker.

Tony: Okay Mike.

Mike: Dominant male monkey mother fucker.

Slater: Imagine how many people out there are fuckin' right now man, just goin' at it.

Slater: George Washington was in a cult, and the cult was into aliens, man.

Darla: What are you looking at? Wipe that face off your head, bitch.

Slater: Didja ever look at a dollar bill, man? There's some spooky shit goin' on there. And it's green too.

Dawson: You know that Julie chick? Loves you. You want her? Gotta play it cool, you know. You can't let her know how much you like ?cause if she knows, she'll dump you like that. Believe me. Like, if she asks you if you want a ride, you say, "No, I've got my own ride, but maybe I'll see you later." Sounds stupid, doesn't it? It works.

O'Bannion: This first lick I'd like to dedicate to your mother... fuck her.

Ms. Ginny Stroud: Okay guys, one more thing, this summer when you're being inundated with all this American bicentennial Fourth Of July brouhaha, don't forget what you're celebrating, and that's the fact that a bunch of slave-owning, aristocratic, white males didn't want to pay their taxes.

Clint: I only came here to do two things, kick some ass and drink some beer.

[glances over his shoulder]

Clint: Looks like we're almost outta beer.

Randall 'Pink' Floyd: Yeah, there's always one senior who has to be the bad-ass.

Wooderson: I love those redheads!

[repeated line]

Slater: Shotgun!

Assistant Coach: Hey ladies, are you gonna be ready to play football this fall? huh?

Benny O'Donnell: I don't know coach, I've been doin' so well in english I thought I might work on bein' a writer. What do ya think about that?

Assistant Coach: Boy, you woudln't know how to spell your own name if it wasn't stencilled on your locker.

Carl Burnett: We're not in Junior High any more. We're freshmen. We're in the big time now... where the girls will be puttin' out all the time.

Benny O'Donnell: Mitchy. Mitchy, mitchy, mitchy...

[all the guys laugh]

Benny O'Donnell: We're lookin' for you pal. Your ass will be purple before the day is over!

Michelle Burroughs: Watch them fly... away

Pickford: Hey you guys know what that song is about? Its about the aliens. We're the aliens man, we're the savages. We're the savages man.

Carl Burnett: Don't let the fact that you won't be able to sit down all summer affect your game

Pickford: Don, give the beer back, man!

Don: I paid for the beer, man.

Mike: I'm just trying to be honest about being a misanthrope.

Kaye Faulkner: It's what called a male pornographic fantasy.

Shavonne Wright: [laughs] Oh my haha

Kaye Faulkner: Think about it! You're basically alone on a deserted island with 2 readily available women. One, a seductive sex goddess type. The other... a healthy girl-next-door-type with a nice butt. So the men have it all, the Madonna and the whore. Women get nothing! We get a geek, an overweight middle-age guy, and a nerdy scientific type.

Jodi: [interrupts] The professor... is sexy.
