Source: Dazed and Confused
Speaker: David Wooderson
That’s what I love about these high school girls, man. I keep getting older, they stay the same age.
This line is spoken by David Wooderson, played by Matthew McConaughey, in the movie Dazed and Confused , directed by Richard Linklater (1993).
A ’90s movie about the ’70s, Dazed and Confused paints a hazy picture of a bunch of high school kids in Texas trying to get lucky, drunk, or stoned on the last day of school. This loveably creepy line is spoken by Wooderson, played by a fresh-faced Matthew McConaughey, who’s way too old to be checking out “the freshman chicks” walking by. Who knew a line about lechery could help make an actor’s career?
All right, all right, all right… click here for the clip.
Where you’ve heard it
Brian of Family Guy does his best McConaughey while standing in front of a bowling alley, dressed as Wooderson and scoping out the teenage girls walking by. Hmm… is it more or less creepy when a cartoon dog says it? Watch the clip and be the judge.
If you were to drop this quote at a dinner party, would you get an in-unison “awww” or would everyone roll their eyes and never invite you back? Here it is, on a scale of 1-10.
Doing your best Wooderson isn’t pretentious, but it might get you arrested.
