Dear Mr. Vernon

"Dear Mr. Vernon:
We accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong. But we think you're crazy to make us write an essay telling you who we think we are. You see us as you want to see us: in the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. But what we found out is that each one of us is a brain, and an athlete, a princess, and a basket case, and a criminal. Does that answer your question?

Sincerely yours,
The Breakfast Club"

Wonderful in "The Breakfast Club" (showing my age, here), even better as a spoof of that character in "Not Another Teen Movie". Same character, same lines, funny as all get-out.

That is by far one of the best movies. There are so many great one-liners.

I read about his death this morning, too. *loved* The Breakfast Club. I didn't know it, but he was origninally from Miami, as well.

I LOVED that movie. It was one of the first (if not THE first) "teen angst" (aka John Hughes) movie I saw.
