The popular girl at school, Claire Standish, was played by Molly Ringwald. Claire ended up in detention because she skipped class so she could go shopping.

“When you grow up, your heart dies.” Allison Reynolds (Ally Sheedy) in The Breakfast Club . The Breakfast Club captured the teen angst of a generation, delving into themes such as stereotyping, the stigma of mental illness and bullying.
The Breakfast Club , which premiered in Los Angeles on Feb. 7, 1985, may be the finest movie about American high school life ever made. Regarded as one of the seminal films of the ’80s, John Hughes’ movie is a compendium of the anxieties, confusion and joys of teenage existence.

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 .
Lastly, Bender gave that triumphant fist pump because he had at last built the personal connection that he so surreptitiously wanted and desperately needed, a relationship that he was originally convinced could never happen.

The movie introduces us to the characters as the stereotypes that each student considers the other: the Nerd (Hall), the Beauty (Ringwald), the Jock (Estevez), the Rebel (Nelson), and the recluse (Sheedy). Also, we are introduced to another stereotype; the mean overbearing teacher.
The Breakfast Club has taught us to own up to these insecurities, to stay bold, and to be proud. It’s very similar to how Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) from Game of Thrones puts it— wear your own preconceived weaknesses like an armor so others can’t use them to hurt you .
Appearance. Carl is first seen in the opening sequence. Carl’s entrance prompts Bender to rudely and mockingly suggest to Brian that “his dad ” (referring to Carl; we see Brian’s actual dad at the end of the film) works at the school.
