Early on, Wayne Campbell addresses the audience with this endearing, yet seemingly unrealistic expectation that foreshadows the movie’s plot. As Wayne gives the audience a kind of guided tour through the celebrated nightlife of his suburban home, the first stop is Stan Nikita’s donuts, where he and his friends run into his ex-girlfriend, Stacy (played by Lara Flynn Boyle).
Stacy approaches their table after some unintended eye contact where she presents him with an anniversary gift, two months after their breakup. When Wayne’s best friend and co-host Garth Altar asks a question that’s hilariously uncomfortable, the scene feels like it could have been a snapshot of any ridiculous moment between any two friends as they hang out on the hood of their car, the Mirth mobile, while staring deeply into the night sky to innocently ponder life’s grand (and… less than grand) mysteries.
While being held at flashlight-point, Garth tries to convince Russell to question his allegiance, calling him ‘Benjamin’s Monkey Boy.’ When Russell pushes back, stating that Benjamin is his friend, Garth offers these helpful words that cause him to defect to the side of our heroes and help save the day. When Garth asks him if these types of gestures are leading to intentions of marriage, Wayne quickly shoots the notion down.
While a seemingly random interjection, a key element to the humor that was carried over from the original Saturday Night Live sketches were these occasional allusions to Garth’s genius level intelligence, breaking him out of the standard side-kick mold he was often relegated to. It’s a simple setup and punchline joke delivered in a quick and unassuming manner that makes it so effective.
The kind of joke that utilizes a type of offbeat humor that isn’t quite cringe-worthy in its awkwardness, but plays off the silence in its own margins. A genuinely romantic scene that’s almost out-of-place finds Wayne seemingly on top of the world as he’s able to do what he loves for a living, lying around with Cassandra as he predicts his own meteoric rise and fall.
Another example of the kind of subversive humor that migrated from the small screen, Wayne’s World guest stars would regularly break into a brief but well-informed lecture casually. In this case, rock legend Alice Cooper’s delightfully enthusiastic lesson on the history of Milwaukee.
A long-celebrated line that’s developed an iconic status in its own right, as Wayne begins the opening notes from a certain Led Zeppelin song while at a guitar shop he’s abruptly stopped before being alerted to their strict policy. Nikita's Manager Glen:(bitterly) Yeah, I know what you'd like to do: find the guy that did it, rip his still-beating heart out, and hold it in his face, so he can see how black it is before he dies.
Nikita's Manager Glen: Yeah, I know what you'd like to do: find the guy that did it, rip his still-beating heart out, and hold it in his face, so he can see how black it is before he dies. Nikita's Manager Glen:(normal) Well, the world's a twisted place.
Nikita's Manager Glen: Well, the world's a twisted place. It’s not often that a Saturday Night Live sketch makes a great movie, but Mike Myers and Dana Carved’s Wayne’s World was such a huge hit that it got a sequel.
The original sketch idea was rejected by most of the SNL writers, because they thought the target was too obscure, but you only have to look at the monstrous success and cult following of those movies to see that they were totally wrong. Wayne’s World 2 needed to be completely rewritten after Mike Myers failed to tell the studio that the original version was a soft remake of an old British movie, and they were furious.
Considering the sequel had to be written in such sharpish fashion, there are a number of inspired, well-crafted subplots in it. One example is when Wayne is forbidden from playing Led Zeppelin’s epic hit “Stairway to Heaven,” because the licensing and royalty fees for the biggest rock band’s biggest song would be too expensive.
Wayne and Garth’s partnership was made so iconic by the SNL sketches and the movies that they inspired a video game and a roller coaster. Wayne breaks the fourth wall more than Deadpool, and he suggests a bunch of alternative endings for the movie he’s actually in.
Hmm, that’s in the Allergen province, isn’t it?... I did a project on Sweden in the eighth grade.” The first Wayne’s World movie was such a huge hit that the sequel was able to bag cameos from such huge stars as Aerosmith, Rip Taylor, Heather Locker, Jay Leno, and even Charlton Heston.
Drew Barrymore also makes an appearance as “Bergen Bergen from the Bergen Fjords,” Handsome Dan’s Swedish receptionist. In this scene, Wayne asks Cassandra if she’ll still love him at the various stages of his fame.
When Wayne and Garth find themselves in this situation, either with Alice Cooper or Aerosmith, they get down on their knees and yell out, “We’re not worthy! We’re not worthy!” There was a rumor that Mike Myers tried to get Nirvana to appear in the big Wayne stock sequence at the end of Wayne’s World 2, but Kurt Cobain canned the appearance after being unimpressed with the movie’s absurdist humor.
This quote is taken for granted, because it’s the line that Wayne and Garth used to open every single episode of their public access rock ‘n’ roll talk show.

About John Wayne (born Marion Morrison, May 26, 1907 – June 11, 1979) is such an iconic American legend that his name has become synonymous with courage, integrity, heroism, America, and standing up for what is right. Born in Winter set, Iowa in 1907, he moved to California at an early age with his family.
After graduating from high school he attended the University of Southern California on an athletic scholarship, playing football until a surfing injury caused his retirement from athletics and subsequently lost him his scholarship. However, while still attending college he had begun working at local film studios, where he was able to begin picking up bit parts in various movies.
John Wayne's movie career moved forward steadily for several years. While his career had its ups and downs from that point until his last film (“The Shooting” in 1976), his triumphs far exceeded the low spots.
While starring in and excelling at numerous roles, John Wayne became best known as the quintessential movie cowboy and war hero, and one of the best recognized symbols of America at home and abroad. Some images and/or other content on this website are copyright © their respective owners.
Reprinted with permission from “The Power of Intention” by Wayne Dyer, published by Hay House. Step 1: See the world as an abundant, providing, friendly place.
Step 2: Affirm: I attract success and abundance into my life because that is who I am. Resistance is disharmony between your desire for abundance and your beliefs about your ability or unworthiness.
In an attitude of allowing, all resistance in the form of thoughts of negativity or doubt are replaced with simply knowing that you and your Source are one and the same. Step 4: Use your present moments to activate thoughts that are in harmony with the seven faces of intention .
Make the choice to let go of that lifetime of beliefs, and begin activating thoughts rights now that allow you to feel good. Say I want to feel good when you're tempted to return to low energy thoughts of disharmony with intention.
Eventually your present moments will activate thoughts that make you feel good, and this is an indicator that you're reconnecting to intention. Step 5: Initiate actions that support your feelings of abundance and success.
Put your body into a gear that pushes you toward abundance and feeling successful. Act on those passionate emotions as if the abundance and success you seek is already here.
Read the books that mysteriously show up, and pay close attention to conversation that seem to indicate you're being called to something new. Step 6: Remember that your prosperity and success will benefit others, and that no one lacks abundance because you've opted for it.
In writing this book, wonderful abundance has flowed into my life in many ways. But even more significantly, book editors and graphic designers, the truck drivers who deliver the book, the autoworkers who build the trucks, the farmers who feed the autoworkers, and bookstore clerks.
Step 7: Monitor your emotions as a guidance system for your connection to the universal mind of intention. Strong emotions such as passion and bliss are indications that you're connected to Spirit, or inspired, if you will.
When you're inspired, you activate dormant forces, and the abundance you seek in any form comes streaming into your life. When you're experiencing low-energy emotions of rage, anger, hatred, anxiety, despair, and the like, that's a clue that while your desires may be strong, they're completely out of sync with the field of intention.
Don't stop the flow of abundant energy by hoarding or owning what you receive. Step 9: Devote the necessary time to meditate on the Spirit within as the source of your success and abundance.
By repeating the sound that is in the name of God as a mantra, you're using a technique for manifesting as ancient as recorded history.
