Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure may have been released in early 1989, but the concept for the film came well before that. In 1983, writers Ed Solomon and Chris Matheson formed an improv workshop with a few of their fellow UCLA students. One of the sketches conceived involved three dopey friends who knew nothing about history… talking about history. To think that a few friends goofing off planted the seeds for something that we’re still talking about and referencing is amazing, but then again, isn’t that always the way?
To celebrate our continuing curiosity with Bill and Ted, we thought we’d take a look back at some of the great lines from the original and remind ourselves of why a sequel might not be the worst idea in the world.
