Time For A Question - From Ann
If you are the age group who grew up with John Hughes movies, did you have a favorite? If so, why? Do you still quote John Hughes movies? Give me a quote!

My favorite line:
"Ferris: Not that I condone fascism, or any -ism for that matter. -Ism's in my opinion are not good. A person should not believe in an -ism, he should believe in himself. I quote John Lennon, "I don't believe in Beatles, I just believe in me." Good point there. After all, he was the walrus. I could be the walrus. I'd still have to bum rides off people."

My all time favorite movie of our time is Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986). I even devoted an entire post to When Was Your Last Ferris Day? Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986) instilled in me a love of Chicago and it was a major influence in my decision to move from Wisconsin to Chicago.

One of the WGN radio hosts is suggesting that as on homage to John Hughes, everyone introduce themselves this weekend, wherever they go as Abe Froman, Sausage King Of Chicago. I think it's brilliant.

So, hi, I'm Abe Froman, Sausage King Of Chicago and I'd like to thank you for stopping by Lola's Diner today.

I was SUCH a huge fan... I can quote a TON of lines from his movies... so hard to pick a favorite.
John Bender from the Breakfast Club always cracked me up... my favorite line of his was when he was talking about Brian's physics club: "It's sort of social. Demented and sad... but social."
Too freakin' funny.
Happy GNO!
PS- My word verification is "dometh." Is someone trying to tell me something? ;)

Some from the Breakfast Club:

"Excuse me, what are you babbling about?"

"Claire. Your name is Claire. Don't you know Claire is a fat person's name?"

"Did you ever do it Claire?"

"Shut up Bitch! Go fix me a turkey pot pie!"

That movie is TIMELESS! My kids love it every bit as much as I do. But I am also a huge fan of Planes, Trains, and Automobiles, Mr. Mom, Breakfast Club, and Sixteen Candles. Dude was talented, wasn't he?? How many lines do we all know from ALL of those movies??
