Ron: My favorite Richard Linklater movie and that’s a tall order, having loved Slacker and Boyhood and so much inbetween. Everybody Wants Some seems to be the most approachable. Each of the characters had their bits. I’m making a list of favorite quotes starting with these from Plummer:

  • Sharks have tails.
  • Cats aren’t supposed to be in the refrigerator.
  • There are people here.

Bonus points for the shout-outs to Carl Sagan and Jimmy Page (tangents within the framework).
