As Teen Wolf season 3 lurches ever closer (six days!), we thought it might be fun to take a closer look at one of our favorite characters… Coach Finstock. From yelling at Greenberg to, well, yelling at everyone else, we have really fallen in love with his incredible one-liners. Here are a few of our favorite Teen Wolf quotes from the coach.
From ‘Second Chance at First Line’
As one of the most memorable lines Coach has ever yelled at a player, this one HAD to make the list. There’s just something about the visual of Scott McCall getting beaten in a footrace by Coach’s dead grandmother that elicits nothing but a burst of giggling. As this was in the second episode of the first season, “Second Chance at First Line,” it was one of our first examples of just how great a character Coach Finstock was going to be.
From ‘The Tell’
This parent teacher conference between Sheriff Stilinski and Coach Finstock, aka the economics teacher (who knew?), is chock full of great moments, and it’s pretty amazing television, but learning that Coach really thought that Stiles was his first name in addition to the last name Stilinski took the cake. Stiles Stilinski, really, Coach? And when Sheriff Stilinski address Coach as ‘cupcake’? Well, that’s just Teen Wolf perfection right there.
Even though we, the viewers and fans, know what Stiles planned to do with the 100 ft of chain he was storing in his locker, we can definitely still identify with Coach a bit here. We’re certain there are many things in Stiles’ locker that would confound and probably even disturb us. Especially knowing all the crazy antics the Beacon Hills High gang gets themselves into on Teen Wolf, whatever Stiles may need that much chain for can’t be good… and it may even be creepy.
Also from ‘Lunatic’
Stiles (or Biles, if you’d like) making first line seemed like a miracle, but actually getting to play in the game just seemed too good to be true. Even Stiles could barely believe he is getting a chance to play, hence the stuttering and arm flailing. What are we talking about? Stiles is always like that. This quote combines some of our favorite things about Teen Wolf: Greenberg, Coach’s anger, Stiles, and lacrosse.
