By now, you’ve probably marathoned every episode of Netflix’s Outer Banks after Season 2 was released on July 30. John B and his crew are super relatable to many groups of friends with all their summer beach days and boat hangs — minus all the treasure-hunting, of course. The Pogue life is the life, which is why you may need a few John B quotes from Outer Banks to whip out during all your adventures together.

John B has had it pretty hard between his father going missing and being framed for a murder he didn’t commit. Despite it all, he’s determined to make things right and spend time with his best friends. You may not have a treasure hunt to go on, but you can plan an Outer Banks-themed scavenger hunt or rent a house near some of the Outer Banks filming locations in South Carolina. Plus, you probably have that same mentality when it comes to making the most of your time with your friends.

Whatever you have planned for the rest of the summer, these 27 John B quotes from the series are perfect for captioning Instagrams with your Pogue crew or for dropping into conversation with your fellow Outer Banks fans.
