NOT JOHN HUGHES!!!

Oh, so sad!

"Oh, Sam, let me take a look at you. Fred, she's gotten her boobies."
"I better get my magnifying glass, hahaha!"

"I hear the grill alone on this car cost five grand. FIVE GRAND!"
"So don't hit anybody."
"Ho ho, don't hit anybody."

Planes, Trains, and Automobiles! She's Having A Baby! Uncle Buck!! Freaking FERRIS BUELLER'S DAY OFF?!

If it wasn't for Hughes, I would have most of my DVD collection, nor my still going strong mental love affair with Jake Ryan. RIP, dude, you will be missed.

[ETA] I mean, this is my parenting/education philosophy for little kids!!

"I don't think I want to know a six-year-old who isn't a dreamer, or a silly heart. And I sure don't want to know one who takes their student career seriously. I don't have a college degree. I don't even have a job. But I know a good kid when I see one. Because they're ALL good kids, until dried-out, brain-dead skags like you drag them down and convince them they're no good. You so much as scowl at my niece, or any other kid in this school, and I hear about it, and I'm coming looking for you!
[looks at Anita's mole] Take this quarter, go downtown, and have a rat gnaw that thing off your face! Good day to you, madam."

Moley Russel Wart. :(

Dude. John Hughes DOMINATED my teen years.


Although, I do like to pretend the Home Alone franchise never happened.

He STILL dominates my movie life! Not a week goes by without a John Hughes quote of some kind in my house. Wah.

I know, I couldn't believe it! These movies were a part of my family! My pop watched TBC religiously, probably once a week.

I'm gearing up the DVD player for a Hughes fest tonight. He was my saving grace during my teen years.

That is terribly sad...and so unfair, as unfair deaths go.

LOL. I love that whole scene. And the one with the hatchet and him scaring Bug. "Shave a little meat off the knee caps... SHWOOP!" Good times, man, good times.

59!? That's so tragically young. Time for a Hughes marathon.

I'm amazed that the obituaries I've read so far keep mentioning Pretty in Pink and The Breakfast Club. I was a little older than the main demographic, but for me it's always been all about Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

I love that they went to an expensive restaurant and a museum and a baseball game and danced in a parade and ... Everything was inventive and fun and not just a bunch of kids playing hooky to get high or slack off. Seriously, it's one of my favorite films ever.

*Joins you in sadness*

I was soooooo sad to hear about him dying. It's like a part of my childhood just went away...

I am so devastated by this news. As soon as I saw it when I got home last night, I was wildly updating my twitter with any quotes I could think of for #johnhughesquotes, and every time I stopped to read what people had written, I got all teary eyed. I am so sad. :-(

I've never read that!! Oh man, what a cool idea. I don't know (ultimately) how I feel about that, because I love Ferris. (True story: the Mr. was Ferris in his high school Got away with stuff and was STILL the apple of his parents eye. !!)

But that just makes the Cameron storyline all the more poignant, huh? Oh, thanks for that link!

(And thank you for the birthday card! I opened it with my coffee and I love you for always being such a good friend. <3 <3 <3 to you and the boys!)

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
