Welcome to the A-to-Z Challenge, peeps! Participating bloggers are hitting this one out of the park this month. I'm trying to keep up (not worthy! not worthy!). Thanks to Arlee Bird for creating this challenge and to all the wonderful hosts who are helping to wrangle the chaos.

My themes is Favorite Characters, Favorite Lines and I'm keeping it short and sweet with my daily offerings. Today is F is for Ferris! Bueller? Bueller?
Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986) was the genius flick from John Hughes that followed the adventures of Ferris Bueller (Matthew Broderick) as he skipped school with his gal-pal, Sloane, and best pal, Cameron. Supporting characters were familiar to most movie goers of the 80s (Mia Sara, Alan Ruck, Jennifer Grey, Jeffrey Jones). Ben Stein was fantastic as the Economics teacher and viewers got to see a very young Charlie Sheen, pre-winning. Jennifer Grey played Ferris' sister, Jeannie, in a constant stay of frustration with a brother who got away with everything. Their romp through Chicago and parade antics create one of my favorite scenes.
"The question isn't what are we going to do. The question is what aren't we going to do."
Speak any English?
What country do you think this is?
"First of all you can never go too far. Second of all, if I'm going
to be caught, it's not gonna be by a guy like that!"
"Not that I condone fascism, or any -ism for that matter. -Ism's 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.' Good point there. After all, he was the walrus. I could be the walrus. I'd still have to bum rides off people."
"Incredible! One of the worst performances of my
career, and they never doubted it for a second!"
See you tomorrow with G!
