    The subjunctive mood is typically used in such a way that the verb's meaning relates to how the speaker feels about it,in this case, It expresses how a person feels about a possible action or state of being and as a matter of fact this expression "me quede mudo" is not literally,usually is used by native speakers to express how surprising a thing might be.

    for example:

    --cuando supe que habia ganado la loteria, me quede mudo.
    --when I knew I had won the lottery, I was so surprised.( so suprised that I did not what to say)

    Quedo se usa cuando se habla de otra persona, "el, ella" y quede cuando se habla de si mismo "yo"
    La conjugación seria
    Yo quede
    Él quedó
    Ella quedó

    If it's subjunctive, I would expect something before it, like "Él está alegre que..." However, when I lived in the US city of Worcester, the free Spanish language newspaper there was *really* bad about putting in the accents. So what you might have is, "me quedé mudo" without the accent.

    Me quedé aplica mas para el pasado, por ejemplo

    Me asusté y me quedé mudo

    Me quedo aplica mas para el presente, por ejemplo

    Me asusto y me quedo mudo

    Porque quedé es pasado y quedo es presente.
    Me quedé mudo - pasado - "Cuando me besó, quedé mudo".
    Me quedo mudo - presente - "Me quedo mudo cuando veo un fantasma".
