Ferris Bueller (Matthew Broderick): Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop to look around once in a while, it may pass you by.
Sloan (Mia Sara): 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 (Alan Ruck): 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: If you had access to a car like this, would you take it back right away? Neither would I.
[Sheen, Charlie]: Drugs?
Jeannie Bueller (Jennifer Grey): Thank you, no. I’m straight.
[Sheen, Charlie]: I meant, are you in here for drugs?
Jeannie Bueller: Why are you here?
[Sheen, Charlie]: Drugs.
Ferris Bueller: I did have a test today. That wasn’t bullshit. It’s on European socialism. I mean, really, what’s the point? I’m not European, I don’t plan on being European, so who gives a crap if they’re socialist? They could be fascist anarchists – that still wouldn’t change the fact that I don’t own a car. Not that I condone fascism, or any ism for that matter. Isms in my opinion are not good. A person should not believe in an ism – he should believe in himself. I quote John Lennon: “I don’t believe in Beatles – I just believe in me”. A good point there. Of course, he was the Walrus. I could be the Walrus – I’d still
have to bum rides off of people.
