Ferris Bueller you're my hero....

"He's licking the glass and making obscene gestures with his hands."

True, I'm way too young to have been part of the John Hughes generation, but I still absolutely adore his movies. I think the first time i saw Ferris Beuller's Day Off, I was about 11 years old. Most of the jokes went over my head, and some of the best parts were edited down for TV, but I was immediately hooked. Soon, I owned the movie on VHS, and watched it nearly every weekend.

It was funny, romantic and eventually, relatable. Not to mention,

To this day, I still think she's pretty much perfect.

"It's a little childish and stupid, but then, so is high school."

"You wear too much eye makeup. My sister wears too much. People think she's a whore."

Ferris: If you're not over here in 15 minutes, I'm going to find a new best friend. Cameron: You've been saying that since the 5th grade.

"Call me sir! Goddamn it!"

"Ferris, my father loves this car more than life itself."

"Ladies and gentlemen, you are such a wonderful crowd, we'd like to play a little tune for you. It's one of my personal favorites and I'd like to dedicate it to a young man who doesn't think he's seen anything good today - Cameron Frye, this one's for you."
