The Breakfast Club Movie Quotes
Brian Johnson (Anthony Michael Hall): Saturday, March 24, 1984. Shermer High School, Shermer, Illinois, 60062. Dear Mr.Vernon. We accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong–and what we did was wrong–but we think you’re crazy to make us write an essay telling you who we think we are. What do you care? You see us as you want to see us. In the simplest terms and the most convenient definitions, you see us as: a brain, an athlete, a basketcase, a princess, and a criminal. Correct? That’s the way we saw each other at 7 o’clock this morning. We were brainwashed.
Claire (Molly Ringwald): Ignore him, he’s just trying to get a rise out of you!
John Bender (Judd Nelson): Sweets? You couldn’t ignore me if you tried. So, so. Are you guys like boyfriend-girlfriend? Steady dates? Lovers? Come on, sporto, level with me, do you slip her the hot beef injection?
Claire: You know why guys like you knock everything?
Bender: Oh, this should be stunning.
Claire: It’s because you’re afraid.
Bender: Oh, you richies are so smart, that’s exactly why I’m not heavy into activities.
Bender: But face it. You’re a neo maxi zoom dweebie, what would you be doing if you weren’t out making yourself a better citizen?
Bender: I wanna be an airforce ranger. submitted by Sarah
Bender: So Ahab, can I bum my doobage?
Brian (stoned): Chicks cannot hold their smoke, that’s what it is.
Brian (to Allison): Are you gonna be like a shopping bag lady? You know, like sit in alleyways and like talk to buildings and wear men’s shoes and that kind of thing?
Brian: The girl is an island of herself.
[talking about parents]
Andy (Emilio Estevez): What do they do to you?
Allison (Ally Sheedy): They ignore me.
Andy: We’re all pretty bizarre. Some of us are just better at hiding it.
Bender: You must be a idiot.
Brian: I’m a ‘ idiot because I can’t make a lamp?
Bender: No, you’re a genius cuz you can’t make a lamp.
Brian: What do you know about trigonometry?
Bender: I could care less about trigonometry.
Brian: Bender, did you know without trigonometry there’d be no engineering?
Bender: Without lamps, there would be no light.
Allison: When you grow up, your heart dies.
Bender: Who cares?
Allison: I care.
Bender: Don’t you ever talk about my friends! You don’t know any of my friends, you don’t look at any of my friends, and you certainly wouldn’t condescend to speak to any of my friends. So you just stick to the things you know: shopping, nail polish, your father’s BMW, and your poor, rich drunk mother in the Caribbean. And as far as being concerned about what’s gonna happen when you and I walk down the hallways at school together, you can forget it cuz it’s never gonna happen. So go bury your head in the sand and wait for your f g prom.
Brian: 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 and the most convenient definitions. But what we found out is that each of us is a brain, and an athlete, and a basketcase, a princess, and a criminal. Does that answer your question? Sincerely yours, The Breakfast Club
