You can't win. You know that, don't you? It doesn't matter if you whip us, you'll still be where you were before, at the bottom. And we'll still be the lucky ones at the top with all the breaks. It doesn't matter. Greasers will still be Greasers and Socs will still be Socs. It doesn't matter.
Brian Johnson: 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...
Andrew Clark: ...and an athlete...
Allison Reynolds: ...and a basket case...
Claire Standish: ...a princess...
John Bender: ...and a criminal...
Brian Johnson: Does that answer your question?
Jules, y'know, honey... this isn't real. You know what it is? It's St. Elmo's Fire. Electric flashes of light that appear in dark skies out of nowhere. Sailors would guide entire journeys by it, but the joke was on them... there was no fire. There wasn't even a St. Elmo. They made it up. They made it up because they thought they needed it to keep them going when times got tough, just like you're making up all of this. We're all going through this. It's our time at the edge.
Mr. Hand: Why are you continuously late for this class, Mr. Spicoli? Why do you shamelessly waste my time like this?
Jeff Spicoli: [long pause, but then with complete truth in his answer] I don't know.
Mr. Hand: [Mr. Hand goes to blackboard and writes the words 'I Don't Know', then underlines them]
Mr. Hand: I like that. 'I Don't Know.' That's nice.
Mr. Hand: 'Mr. Hand, will I pass this class?' Gee, Mr. Spicoli, I don't know! You know what I'm going to do? I'm going to leave your words right up here for all my classes to enjoy, giving you full credit of course, Mr. Spicoli.
Jeff Spicoli: All right!
Dear Governor Axtell.
I've heard that you will give 200 dollars for my head. Perhaps we should meet and talk. I am at the Juarez village at the border. Send 3 men, and instruct them not to shoot, as I am unarmed. In short, Sir; I surrender.
Your obedient servant William H. Bonney.
PS: I changed my mind. Kiss my ass.
Movies chosen were based on two things:
* They had to have at least three Brat-Pack Actors (see explanation below)
* They had to have come out in the 80s
The Original Brat Pack is culled from three movies:
The Breakfast Club
St Elmo's Fire
Other actors have to have acted with the main Brat Pack at least once.
Four tiers of actors
The central Brat Pack, who were in at least 3 films of the period
The outer Brat Pack, who were in at least one of the original Brat Pack movies above
The Secondary Brat Pack, who were in at least 3 Brat Pack films
and the outer ring, who acted in at least 1 Brat Pack film
Feel free to put forth your suggestions, if you think there's a major movie I've missed. The list seems a lot smaller than I expected. And a lot of movies I'd have placed on the list didn't even rank, according to the above criterion.
