Classic Breakfast Club

Bender: Just bury your head in the sand and wait for your f–kin prom!

Claire: I hate you.

Bender: Yeah? GOOD.

(Watched it last night, first time in years) :stuck_out_tongue:

One of my all-time favorite movies.

I think my favorite line is when Bender looks at Claire and says, “And you…don’t like me anyway”


Yeah, Dad?

How’s your day, Pal?

Great Dad, how’s yours?

Super! Say, how’d you like to go fishing this weekend?

Great Dad! Aw, but I’ve got homework to do.

That’s all right son! You can do it on the boat!

[sub]Done from memory. Probably about 90% accurate.[/sub]

Dead on, monster. My anal retentive self won’t allow the sequence to go unfinished, though:

Son: Gee!

Father: Dear… isn’t our son swell?

Mother: Yes, dear. Isn’t life swell? kissy sounds

Father: kissy sounds


The sandwich.

Brian: “You wear tights?”
Andrew: NO, I don’t wear tights. I wear the required uniform."
Brian: “Tights.”
Andrew: “Shut up.”

Bender: Well, Brian, this is a very nutritious lunch. All the food groups are represented. Did your mom marry Mr. Rogers?
Brian Johnson: Uh, no. Mr. Johnson.
Vernon: What if your home … what of your *dope/i] was on fire?
John Bender: Impossible, sir. It’s in Johnson’s underwear.
Andrew: What do you need a fake I.D. for?
Brian: So I can vote!
John Bender: Does Barry Manilow know that you raid his wardrobe?
John Bender: What do you guys do in your club?
Brian Johnson: In physics we…uh…we talk about physics, properties of physics.
John Bender: So it’s sorta social. Demented and sad, but social.
That movie’s a classic? Damn, I’m old.

don’t you…forget about me. Don’t don’t don’t you. forget about. As she walk on by (or something)

The band that did that song has disowned it. :stuck_out_tongue:

:eek: Did they find the recent Billy Idol cover of it that bad?!

Bender: You are a neomaxizoomedweebie. What would you be doing if you weren’t out making yourself a better citizen?

Claire: I’m not fat!
Bender: No, but I can see that you’re pushing maximum density.

Bender: “…if he gets up, we’ll all get up. It’ll be anarchy…”

Bender as his Dad: “Shut up bitch, go fix me a turkey pot pie”


Naw this was long ago. I saw an interview with them (I think it was on VH1) where he said when he hears that song he puts his hands over his ears and runs away.

I find bands that hate their one and only hit funny. You know they’ve been churching out arty crap that nobody listens to for years now and think their one mainstream hit has ‘kept them back’ somehow when the truth is nobody wants to listen to it.

Andrew: Dude, this is the worst fake i.d. I’ve ever seen. Do you realize you’ve made yourself 52?

Vernon: Gimme that.
Bender: I don’t have it.
Vernon: You want me to yank you out of that seat and shake it out of you?
Bender: I don’t have it. Screws fall out all the time, the worlds’ an imperfect place.
Bender: You’re right. Its wrong to destroy literature. Its so fun to read. And Mo-Lay really pumps my 'nads.
Alison: I’ll do anything sexual and I don’t need a million dollars to do it either.
Claire: You’re lying.
Alison: I already have. I’ve done just about everything there is except a few things that are illegal. I’m a nymphomaniac.
Claire: Lie.
Brian: Are your parents aware of this?
Alison: The only person I told was my shrink.
Andrew: And what did he do when you told him?
Alison: He nailed me.
And finally, Bender’s Naked Poodle Lady joke explained. :slight_smile:


Anthony Michael Hall has been in four of the great moobies evAr!!!

Breakfast Club
Sixteen Candles
Weird Science
National Lampoon’s Vacation

Bender: the world’s an imperfect place, screws fall out all the time

Darkhold- Too true. You wanna say to these artists, so you look back on that one blessed time you absolutely nailed the melody and lyric with… disgust (?) :smack:

I love the scene where Bender falls through the ceiling because the teacher swearing in the other room sounded so genuine and exasperated:


Vernon: JE-sus CHRIST Al-MIGHTY!!! [Comes into library] What was that ruckus?

Brian: Uh, what ruckus?

Vernon: I was in my office just now, and I heard a ruckus!

Brian: Can you… describe the ruckus, sir?

Vernon: Don’t mess with the bull, you’ll get the horns. :slight_smile:

Vernon reminds me so much of this asst. principal we had back in jr. high…always with that same exasperated look on his face, like WTF are you kids gonna do now that I’m gonna have to bust ya for?

Actually, Simple Minds had a couple of Top 10 hits after that, including a US #1, “Alive and Kicking.” Did they disown that one too?

So does it strike anyone else as grossly unfair that the brainy kid still doesn’t get any nookie at the end? Apparently there was hope for everyone else (although I thought Ally Sheedy looked much better BEFORE the makeover).
