I had a book of quotes

When I was a moody pre-teen and teenager I had two movies that I lurved. Say Anything and the Breakfast club. My god I watched that movie so many times. While not as many as the Princess Bride, it was pretty close.

I also had a quote book at some point and almost every quote was from the Breakfast club. I remember rewinding the tape over and over to make sure I had written down the quote correctly. thank god for the internet now and that i can just google all the quotes, but at the time that was not an option and they were in a book. 

So it is a terrible loss today of John Hughes. I LOVED his movies and I might have to download and watch a bunch of them this weekend. 

Some quotes. Add your own faves:

Andrew: We're all pretty bizarre. Some of us are just better at hiding it, that's all.

Brian Johnson: Dear Mr. Vernon, we accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong. But we think you're crazy to make an essay telling you who we think we are. You see us as you want to see us... In the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. But what we found out is that each one of us is a brain...
Andrew Clark: ...and an athlete...
Allison Reynolds: ...and a basket case...
Claire Standish: ...a princess...
John Bender: ...and a criminal...
Brian Johnson: Does that answer your question?... Sincerely yours, the Breakfast Club. 

Andrew: What do you need a fake I.D. for?
Brian: So I can vote!

John Bender: Ah... but to dorks like him, they are. What do you guys do in your club?
Brian Johnson: Well, in physics we... we talk about physics, properties of physics.
John Bender: So it's sorta social, demented and sad, but social. Right?
