    This, so much. What is it about 2009?

    At the risk of hijacking the thread, I’m someone who grew up being subjected to insults equating me w/ an ugly dog. Even if it’s a “cute kid” saying the line, I’m really wishing a different quote would’ve been used here to remember Hughes.

    and to try to get back on thread, I’ll offer lines from my favorite Hughes movie…

    Richard Vernon:
    Well, well. Here we are. You have exactly eight hours and fifty-four minutes to think about why you’re here. You may not talk, you will not move from these seats. Any questions?

    John Bender:
    Yeah. Does Barry Manilow know that you raid his wardrobe?

    Long. Duk. Dong.

    Not everyone mourns John Hughes that much…for our own reasons.

    Not to mention the implied date-rape scene for laughs in Sixteen Candles…
