Waynes World Quotes

Sunday, July 31 by Andrew Jett

“Wayne’s World” quotes are some of the most memorable in the history of comedy movies. The 1992 film stars Mike Myers and Dana Carvey as a pair of slackers who host a popular cable access TV show. Alongside a star-studded cast, Myers and Carvey unleash dozens of iconic quotes throughout “Wayne’s World.”

  1. “Garth, marriage is punishment for shoplifting in some countries.” – Wayne Campbell Playing his quick-witted character Wayne Campbell, Mike Myers has some of the best quotes in “Wayne’s World.” In this line, Myers warns Dana Carvey’s character about the dangers of matrimony.
  2. “If Benjamin were an ice cream flavor, he'd be pralines and dick.” – Garth Algar Dana Carvey’s character, Garth Algar, had a deceptively simplistic exterior. Algar was actually quite insightful in this “Wayne’s World” quote. Here he creatively slams Rob Lowe’s character with his unique and hilarious style.
  3. “Am I supposed to be a man? Am I supposed to say, ‘It's okay, I don't mind, I don't mind’? Well, I mind! I mind big time! And you know what the worst part is? I never learned to read!” – Wayne Campbell Even the climactic speech in “Wayne’s World” is full of satire. In this quote, Myers attempts to win back his girlfriend with his signature method of parody.
  4. “Well that's where I see things just a little differently. Contract or no, I will not bow to any sponsor.” – Wayne Campbell Many of the jokes in “Wayne’s World” work best in the visual sense. In this sight-gag quote, Myers explains his artistic independence, just before snacking on pizza from a national chain.
  5. “Well, I'm a regular visitor here, but Milwaukee has certainly had its share of visitors. The French missionaries and explorers began visiting here in the late 16th century.” – Alice Cooper In a surprisingly funny cameo appearance, rock legend Alice Cooper joins in the fun during a backstage concert scene. This “Wayne’s World” quote lampoons the dumb rocker stigma, beginning an insightful and intelligent monologue from Cooper.
  6. “Ribbed for her pleasure. Eww.” – Garth Algar Carvey brings an endearing innocence to Garth, and it’s evident in all his “Wayne’s World” quotes. While searching the bedroom of Rob Lowe’s character, Carvey discovers a box of condoms. He immediately turns to the camera and makes his feelings known.
  7. “Well, the world's a twisted place.” – Glen As the manager of the local hangout Mikita’s, Ed O’Neill is perfect. Mysterious, cynical, and probably crazy, O’Neill’s lines are full of nervous laughs. During all his “Wayne’s World” quotes, you never quite know if he’s serious.
  8. “Yeah, and if a frog had wings it wouldn't bump its ass when it hopped.” – Cassandra Wong The super-hot Tia Carrere injects some sex appeal into “Wayne’s World” as Myers’ love interest. She’s not just eye candy, though; Carrere has some great quotes. Here she uses an unexpected barometer to measure her band’s prospects for success.
  9. “It's like a new pair of underwear. At first it's constrictive, but after a while it becomes a part of you.” – Garth Algar With his unique outlook on life, Carvey’s iconic character is as charming and engaging as they come. In this “Wayne’s World” quote, Garth describes his conflicting feelings about a fancy new TV studio.
  10. “And I would've gotten away with it too, if it hadn't been for you snoopin' kids!” – Old Man Withers In the movie’s creative and hilarious ending scene, “Wayne’s World” pays homage to the classic TV show “Scooby-Doo, Where Are You?” In this quote, Myers and the gang catch a villain in the classic cartoon’s unmistakable style.
