Danke Schoen: John Hughes Tribute

Achariya Maktoum threw out a blogger challenge in Memory of John Hughes, and it was incredibly difficult not to respond. While I have seen some great responses to her challenge, many of them are a bit too 'pink' for me, as my favorite John Hughes flick included absolutely no Molly Ringwald.

Ed Rooney: Between grief and nothing... I'll take grief.
Sloane: Great.

The 1986 film Ferris Bueller's Day Off, written, directed and produced by Hughes, has always been a favorite, and I for one wished I could be as stunning as Mia Sara's Sloane Peterson, an amazingly pulled together high school student with the most popular boyfriend and the great leather jacket. The casting was quirky, funny and perfect, and it made us all wish we were as clever as Ferris at skipping school.

Sloane: What are we going to do?
Ferris: The question isn't "what are we going to do," the question is "what aren't we going to do?"
Cameron: Please don't say were not going to take the car home. Please don't say were not going to take the car home. Please don't say were not going to take the car home.
Ferris: [to the camera] If you had access to a car like this, would you take it back right away? [beat]
Ferris: Neither would I.

I offer you my best Sloane Peterson.

Such a great job on the look, even down to the shape of the face! And yes, who wouldn't have wanted to be as pulled together as Sloane back in high school?
