"Throwing Seven Different Kinds of Smoke!!!..."



Dupree (Owen Wilson): "How are ya? First of all, thank you for giving me the opportunity to come talk to you on Career Day. Now, I am not Mr. Peterson and I don't have a career, per se.  I guess you could say my career is living and loving - and I do that to the up most!.....I see all you little fresh faced kidlets, sitting there in your neat little rows, and you're all just pods. Pods waiting for your instructions.  Some of you will get zapped right away and be 15 year old prodigies, little midget Olympic gymnasts, with their pictures on cereal boxes.  Some of you will go on to college and find your rhythm there and then go chase down the Titans of Industry or maybe straighten out our problems at the UN. Some of you and this is the group that no one ever comes in to Career Day addresses and it's criminal! Some of you are just going to float along; eating spicy foods, humming black peoples music into your thirties, well into your thirties, languishing. This group of pods is going to do a lot of languishing and your going to take some heat for it.  Sadly, you will. (sigh) Europe is a little easier. They seem to understand a little better. So, is South America. I went to Argentina one time and everyone just seemed to be sitting around.  It was beautiful. That's okay. Stay loose. Stay liquid. Laugh a lot but be ready. That's what Dupree's doing with his life's little pod.  Staying nimble until I get the call from the Mother Ship - my rezone de taut. Then I fight!  Then you'll see Dupree coming in here throwing seven different kinds of smoke (pow!!) That's fine. The pods that were supposed to hear this, did.  It will kick in when it needs to....
