“It doesn’t matter if you have the beard on the outside. As long as you’ve got the beard on the inside.”

From: Dexter’s Laboratory

Genre: Movies

Who said it?: Action Hank

The story behind the quote: This week’s quote comes from the Cartoon Network original animated series, Dexter’s Laboratory. Dexter is a genius eccentric who loves building all sorts of fanciful inventions but his big sister DeeDee, always manages to wreck them. Even if he is incredibly smart, Dexter is still a kid and is still prone to do the things normal children do like watch cartoons and action shows.

Action Hank is an action hero on television in the world of Dexter’s Laboratory and is one of Dexter’s favorite shows. In the episode Beard to be Feared, Dexter decides to to grow a super rugged/strong beard just like Action Hank using his scientific skills and he does eventually team up with his hero. Just as a villain is about to use his beard to stab Action Hank, Dexter deflects it with his own synthetic beard. Action Hank thanks Dexter for saving him but Dexter sheepishly admits that his beard isn’t natural like Action Hank’s. This is when Action Hank delivers the quote.

Geek wisdom: We do live in a superficial world where we concern ourselves with outward appearances. It’s become so easy to give snap judgements on our first impressions with people without trying to dig deeper. We won’t really know a person well until we do so and, honestly, that’s what matters.

Most of my childhood (and adult life) was spent doing a lot of geeky stuff: watching TV, playing video games and going to the movies. To some, it may have been a waste of time. Well, to me, it has made me what I am today... a geeky adult. I actually write for a couple of blogs, namely: geekwisdom.wordpress.com 3rdworldgeeks.com gamemoir.com Please check them out!
