Running with scissors since 1970-something... Stay whimsical. Be incredible. It's your story.

There are really no words to describe the awesomeness that is Napoleon Dynamite—He's got skills! The summer of 2004 brought us a peculiar cast of characters from rural Idaho: Napoleon, Pedro, Kip, Deb, and the pigskin-throwin' Uncle Rico. The bizarre gang took us on a hilarious adventure of Rex Kwon Do training, steak-eating, cake building, LaFawnduh dating, sweet bike jumping, class president campaigning, Fat-Lard Tina feeding, dance grooving, and tetherball playing. It was flippin' sweet!

So are you guys like Pedro's cousins with all the sweet hookups? • Napoleon Dynamite

Uncle Rico: What about your girlfriend?

Kip: Well, things are getting pretty serious right now. I mean, we chat online for, like, two hours every day so I guess you could say things are gettin' pretty serious.

Why do you love me? Why do you need me? Always and forever... We met in a chatroom, now our love can fully bloom... Sure the world wide web is great, but you, you make my salivate... I love technology, but not as much as you, you see... But I STILL love technology... Always and forever. Our love is like a flock of doves, flying up to heaven above... always and forever, always and forever... Why do you need me? Why do you love me? Always and forever [Kip is singing to Lafawnduh after they are pronounced husband and wife]...  • Kip

You know, there's like a butt-load of gangs at this school. This one gang kept wanting me to join because I'm pretty good with a bo staff. • Napoleon Dynamite

Deb: What are you drawing?

Napoleon: A liger.

Deb: What's a liger?

Napoleon: It's pretty much my favorite animal. It's like a lion and a tiger mixed... bred for its skills in magic.

What the flip was Grandma doing at the sand dunes? • Napoleon Dynamite

It took me like three hours to finish the shading on your upper lip. It's probably the best drawing I've ever done. • Napoleon Dynamite

Kip: So when's grandma coming back?

Uncle Rico: I don't know. Not sure.

Napoleon: You don't have to stay here with us, we're not babies.

Uncle Rico: Ha ha! Talk to your Auntie Carolyn.

Napoleon: Kip is like 32 years old.

Kip: I don't mind if you stay.

I'm Rex, founder of the Rex Kwan Do self-defense system! After one week with me in my dojo, you'll be prepared to defend yourself with the STRENGTH of a grizzly, the reflexes of a PUMA, and the wisdom of a man. • Rex

I caught you a delicious bass. • Napoleon Dynamite
