It's been parodied on Saturday Night Live in an ongoing skit about high school girls working in a Gap store. In the parady, they tend to use it in narratives. In my current research on undergraduate life/language, I've not encountered the quotative among either sex, suggesting that it is limited to the 18-under group, that it is age-graded, or that it is regional (I'm doing research in No. Virginia).
