Travis Bradberry

Movie/TV Quote

"So be prepared, be enthusiastic, and leave your bullshit attitude and baggage at the door because we don't need it!"


Wet Hot American Summer (2001)


It was hard for the Thrillist Entertainment team to land on which Wet Hot American Summer quote to represent the movie because there are so many good ones. "It's always fun to get away from camp, even for an hour." "You taste like burger, I don't like you anymore." "Let's all promise that in 10 years from today, we'll meet again, and we'll see what kind of people we've blossomed into." "I love sluts! Sluts rock!" "You're covered in dirt. Take a shower." Etc., etc., etc. It's a goldmine, folks! Ultimately, we settled on this one from Amy Poehler's theater enthusiast Susie, who tells the camp kids to saddle up for the musical number from Godspell they'll be performing for the talent show -- which Bradley Cooper's Ben is producing and Susie is directing-slash-choreographing. This D-plot concludes when Susie announces the kids later at the talent show: "Before we start, I'd just like to say the campers you're about to see suck dick! But nevertheless, please welcome them."
