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!

For my #1 favorite John Hughes movie and quote see Lola's Diner. My 2nd favorite John Hughes movie is The Breakfast Club (1985).

My favorite quote is:
Brian Johnson: "Saturday, March 24,1984. Shermer High School, Shermer, Illinois, 60062. Dear Mr. Vernon, We accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong. What we did *was* wrong. But we think you're crazy to make us write an essay telling you who we think we are. What do you care? You see us as you want to see us - in the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. You see us as a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess and a criminal. Correct? That's the way we saw each other at 7:00 this morning. We were brainwashed."

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 FCR today.

If you like what you see, please consider becoming a Follower.

I loved that movie as I said at your other blog but it did kinda make me crazy that it was all filmed in one spot.

So funny! I absolutely loved that movie. I think my favorite was Pretty in Pink... so hard to quote a favorite line but one of my fave parts was when Andie confronted Blaine: "What about prom, Blaine?"
So heartbreaking.
Happy GNO!

That was great! One of my favorites was just actually just about every line from Ferris Bueller's Day Off. When his sister is in the police station and introduces herself to the criminal (Charlie Sheen) as "Shauna" and the background music says it,, I just laugh every time1
