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.


Note: Remember to play the Bug-Eyed Trivia Challenge every day. Life moves pretty fast...

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.

i never give my real name at restaurants when they are putting me on a waiting list. of course i've totally used abe froman, but i always crack a huge smile...can't keep a straight face to save my fucking life.

i don't remember the "you heartless wench" line. might need to rewatch the movie.

my uncle named one of his dogs ferris. i loved calling that little fucker to come inside: bueller. bueller. bueller.

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. 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.
