Things Owen Wilson Says: The Supercut

Back in May, we featured a supercut of all the instances in which Owen Wilson says “Wow!” in his movies, a verbal tic perfectly aligned with the actor’s wide-eyed, easygoing deportment. Now the same YouTube user, Owenergy Studios, has compiled a broader look at Wilson’s pet phrases, and the result is a very funny gloss on the Texan’s unique comic persona.

Many of these phrases are common enough to make Wilson’s repetition of them seem coincidental, but some—like his oft-repeated exclamation that someone is “crazier than a road lizard”—are clearly his own off-kilter creations.
