Bill & Ted’s Most Triumphant Moments

On this day in 1989, Ted “Theodore” Logan (Keanu Reeves) and Bill S. Preston,
Esq. (Alex Winter) hopped inside a time-traveling phone booth and gathered a gaggle of key figures from the past so they wouldn’t fail their high school history class.


They managed to travel through time with a wise cracking rock n’ roller Rufus, played by the late George Carlin to scoop up these historical favorites: Napoleon, Billy the Kid, Socrates, Sigmund Freud, Genghis Kahn, Joan of Arc, Abraham Lincoln, and Beethoven… all who had ball adjusting to life in 1989 San Dimas, California with airhead two teenagers.

Party on historical dudes!

(and medieval babes!)


Here are a few of their most triumphant moments from this bodacious comedy classic…

When they lost Napoleon Bonaparte at the water park.


When they introduced Sigmund Freud to corndogs.

… and Genghis Kahn to the sporting goods store.


When Wyld Stallyns almost got off the ground.


When they met Princess Babes!

When they slayed their final history presentation in front of the entire school.

My Favorite Bill & Tedisms

Ted: Strange things are afoot at the Circle-K.

Bill:  So-cratz – “The only true wisdom consists in knowing that you know nothing”.
Ted: That’s us, dude.

Mr. Ryan (teacher): Now, who was Joan of Arc?
Ted: …Noah’s wife?

Bill: You ditched Napoleon!
Ted: Deacon, do you realize you have just stranded one of Europe’s greatest leaders in San Dimas?
Deacon: He was a d*ck.

Billy the Kid: Here’s the deal. What I win, I keep. What you win, I keep.
Bill, Ted: Sounds good, Mr. The Kid!

Ted: Your stepmom *is* cute, though.
Bill: Shut up, Ted!
Ted: Remember when I asked her to the prom?

Bill: Be excellent to each other.
Ted: Party on, dudes!
