We recently lost one of the great directors from the 1980's and 1990's, John Hughes, who passed away from a heart attack in Manhattan at the all too young age of 59. Hughes directed some of the most memorable films of the 1980's including Weird Science, Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, Planes, Trains & Automobiles and Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

In the 1990's he wrote and produced one of the most successful movie franchises ever produced
with Home Alone, Home Alone 2: Lost In New York and Home Alone 3, the first two of which featured child star Macaulay Culkin.

While he had a hand in so many successful movies, one of his most memorable films remains The Breakfast Club from 1985. The movie went on to make major stars out of it's then mostly-unknown cast which included Molly Ringwald, Anthony Michael Hall, Ally Sheedy, Judd Nelson and Emilio Estevez.

Remembered not only for one of the best selling soundtracks of all time, it also featured some of the most memorable movie quotes from the 1980's cinema. Here are a few lines from some of the most frequently quoted scenes:|

Andrew: I said, leave her alone.
Bender: You gonna make me?
Andrew: Yeah.
Bender: You and how many of your friends?

The film struck a chord with teenagers and grown-ups alike and went on to become one of the most unexpected hits of the year, grossing over $48,000,00. The film remains a favorite of movie fans today, looking to recapture a bit of 80's nostalgia.
