Hate it or love it, HBO’s Entourage provided audiences with fun, light-hearted entertainment for eight seasons.

After a few re-watches, more and more I found myself relating to Johnny “Drama” Chase.  He is, in my opinion, the most realistic character in the entire show.

As the lesser-known, older brother of budding superstar Vincent Chase, Drama is the butt of many jokes.

In a show focused on the glamour of success, Johnny Drama’s struggles highlight the harsh realities of the real world.

No, he’s not the most successful person in the world, but Drama possesses a multitude of redeeming qualities.  He is an overlooked entertainer with unrelenting loyalty to those within his circle.

Let’s take a look back at Johnny Drama’s best quotes.

“When opportunity knocks, let her the f**k in”

Drama is known for capitalizing on opportunities.

Whenever Vince lands a big role, Drama always manages to snag a part for himself.  No matter how small the window is, he finds a way to squeeze through.

When he sees his friend flip-flopping on a decision, Drama urges him with this adamant message to go for it.

In uncertain times, we could all use a friend like Johnny Drama to give us a push.

“I’ve been workin’ steady for the last 12 years minus the last 3”

Drama is the best at hyping himself up.  He may not be the best, but he will do everything in his power to convince you that he is.

When it comes to getting a job, you have to spice up your résumé wherever possible.  Trashman?  No, public sanitation manager.

It’s all about how you frame yourself.

“Back in the game?  I am the f**king game, pal”

This legendary quote happens in the same scene as the last one.

In an interview with his future agent, Drama doesn’t appreciate the way he’s being spoken to.

He is never afraid to speak up for himself.  His unwavering confidence carries him through any obstacles in his path.

“Sit down”

When in the theater watching Vince’s latest film, a man gets up to go to the bathroom.  Johnny, taking it as a sign of disrespect, sternly tells him to go back to his seat.

Yes, two words.

Yet this simple line showcases Drama’s unyielding loyalty and love for his little brother.

“VICTORY!”

Johnny Drama

It’s Johnny Drama’s famous catchphrase from his Viking Quest days, but he uses it in real life too.

Whenever he accomplishes something big, he stands up and shouts it out for the world to hear.

So soak it in and celebrate your victories.  As Drama knows, they don’t come easy.
