Movie Brain - Ferris Bueller

Here are some lines I use all the time from Ferris Bueller's Day Off, and I only recently realized that's where I got them from.  Most of them anyway.
  • Never had one lesson.
  • In what........waaaaay?
  • Pardon my French, but you're an asshole!
  • Don't ask me to participate in your stupid crap if you don't like the way I do it.
  • You heartless wench!
  • Mint.
  • Why don't you put your thumb up your butt?
  • You killed the car.
  • It's been in my pocket.  They're real warm and soft.

I find myself saying "What country do you think this is?" a lot, whether it's appropriate or not. I just love the way that line is delivered.

Oooooohhhhhh.... The music playing in the gallery sequence is Dream Theater's instrumental cover of The Smiths' Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want. Gorgeous, lovely.

That movie was also the first time I saw Edward Hopper's Nighthawks.

Ferris has a lot to answer for.

My most used/adapted quote: "If you put a piece of coal up his ass, in two weeks you would have a diamond."

It's been so long since I've seen this movie, I don't even REMEMBER any quotes.

Mrs. Holly Hall said...

"So THAT'S how it is in their family"

says the principal to his secretary after Sloan meets up with her Daddee.

WLC - Oh yeaaaaaah.

Savannah - glad to do it!

Paticus - I'm a bit obsessed with that actor, Richard Edson. Did you know he was the original drummer fro Sonic Youth?

Becky - It was when Jennifer Grey hit the collection can out of that geek's hand when he was looking for money to "Save Ferris". :)

Suzi - me too!

badger - that's a good one, but it doesn't find it's way into my everyday conversation like the others.

Heff - I remembered them, I just didn't remember where I remembered them, um, from. What?

Holly - that's a good one.

RW - exactly.

Sybil - I find it hard to believe that Edie McClurg was only about 35 when she made that film. She also played a teenager in Carrie. Man, she always looked older.
