“Face it,” Bender says to Brian . “You’re a neo-maxi-zoom-dweebie.” The term was apparently ad-libbed by Judd Nelson. It’s unclear how old the word dweeb is . Some sources say it’s from the late 1960s, while the Oxford English Dictionary cites 1982 as the earliest mention.
Did your mom marry Mr . Rogers ? Brian Johnson: Uh, no.
Claire , along with the rest of the group covered for Bender when he stole the screw, asking Vernon why anybody would want to steal a screw and also when Vernon stormed in asking what the ruckus was, while John Bender hid under Claire’s desk and wedged his head between Claire’s legs.
Vernon reads the essay , in which Brian states that Vernon has already judged who they are using stereotypes, and that Vernon is crazy if he thinks they’ll tell them who they are; Brian correspondingly states that “each one of us is a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess, and a criminal.
Brian is dropped off, will spend almost 9 hours in detention at Shermer High School with four other ‘stereotypes’. The reason is he in detention is because he used the flare gun that was fired in his locker and tried to kill himself because he received his first “F” on a school shop class project.
She spent the day stealing glances at him until finally, at the end of the day, they met back in the janitor’s closet where they had made out and they made out again. Bender told her to sneak out of her house that Wednesday night and to meet up with him, and so she did . So, she slept with Bender .
‘The Breakfast Club ‘ And ‘Pretty In Pink’ Are Landing On Netflix This Week. When it comes to teen movies, the 80s are a gold mine – and two cult classics of the decade are landing on Netflix this week.
“The Breakfast Club ” is currently available to stream on Amazon Prime and Hulu.
The film’s title comes from the nickname invented by students and staff, for detention, at New Trier High School, the school attended by the son of one of John Hughes’ friends. Thus, those who were sent to detention were designated members of “The Breakfast Club “.
John said that “you got everything and I got shit”; by giving him her earring she negates that accusation.
Even aside from the fact that Bender very explicitly harasses and antagonizes Claire for the entire movie, making the scene where they finally make out seem mildly toxic at best, neither of their character arcs seem to build toward a relationship in any way. I don’t Claire ever interacted with Bender again.
Claire Standish is in detention for skipping school to go shopping. And finally, John Bender is in detention for pulling a fire alarm and fighting with the school’s teachers and students.
Poignant, funny and thoroughly relatable, the screenplay presents a touching tale of teen angst which doesn’t seek to patronise or trivialise the teenager’s experiences and still resonates, even if you’ve long left your school days behind. There are great lines dotted throughout the movie: ‘We’re all pretty bizarre.
Everything I need to know, I learned from ‘The Breakfast Club’ Everyone is different. This is the first and biggest lesson of The Breakfast Club, and also the biggest DUH . Labels are irrelevant. Be true to yourself. Detention is alright. Dance like no one is watching. Being a woman is hard. We will all be like our parents. Teenagers should be taken seriously.
