Those four words roll off the tongue as a lighthearted way of asking "What's up? What's next?" And that tripping lightly stuff makes sense, since "How now, brown cow" has its origin in elocution, where the phrase was used to demonstrate properly rounded vowels.
Ron: How now, brown cow?

Paul: Not much. Just on my way to catch a movie with my girl.

"How now, brown cow?"

"You're going to turn into a purple cow."
