    Wooderson: I've been thinkin' about gettin' back in school, though, man.
    Dawson: What, like, J.C. or something like that?
    Wooderson: Yeah, man, that's where all the girls are right? But I'd just as soon keep workin', though, keep a little change in my pocket. Better than listenin' to some dipshit, doesn't know what the hell he's talkin' about, anyway!
    Dawson: I know what you're talkin' about, man!
    Wooderson [to Mitch]: So, you're a freshman, right? Tell me, man, how's this year's crop of freshman chicks lookin' this year?
    Dawson: Wood, you're gonna go to jail very soon, man!
    Wooderson: Naw, man. That's what I like about these high school girls; I get older, they stay the same age.
    Dawson: Yes, they do.
    Wooderson: Yes, they do.

    Cynthia: God, don't you ever feel like everything we do and everything we've been taught is just to service the future?
    Tony: Yeah I know, like it's all preparation.
    Cynthia: Right. But what are we preparing ourselves for?
    Mike: Death.
    Tony: Life of the party.
    Mike: It's true.
    Cynthia: You know, but that's valid because if we are all gonna die anyway shouldn't we be enjoying ourselves now? You know, I'd like to quit thinking of the present, like right now, as some minor insignificant preamble to something else.

    Kaye: You know, you guys were in class trying to list all the Gilligan's Island episodes without even a hint of irony.
    Shavonne: What the hell are you talking about, girl?
    Kaye: You weren't thinking about it, were you?
    Shavonne: Gilligan's Island?
    Kaye: It's what's called a male pornographic fantasy.
    Shavonne: Oh my...
    Kaye: Think about it. You're basically alone on a deserted island with two readily available women. One a seductive sex-godess type, the other a healthy girl-next-door type with a nice butt.

    Jodi: The professor... is sexy.
