    Fun fact - this restaurant still exists just south of Eugene, Oregon. That's I-5 in the background.

    My friends and I will still occasionally drop a "grrrr, ROONEY!"

    Merely the second-best "Pardon my French" reference in that film, IMO:

    Ferris: "Pardon my French, but Cameron is so tight that if you stuck a lump of coal up his a_s, in two weeks you'd have a diamond."

    So many memorable lines from that movie:

    "Da Bears."

    "Everybody loves Ferris, he's a righteous dude."

    "Wanna gummybear?"

    "I lost the Vermont deal!"

    The 39 flavors scene, Ben Stein calling role, the chase scene at the end when Ferris tries to get home.

    Every guy in the country was in love with Sloane Peterson.

    Another entry from a John Hughes film.

    Never gets old: "You're going the wrong way!" "How would he know where we're going?"

    When the camera flashes to candy as the devil may be the funniest damn thing I have ever seen. Everyone remembers “those aren’t pillows,” but this scene is that just killed.

    Mayor Vaughn from Jaws, Murray Hamilton, also killed in the scene between him, Mr. Robinson, and Dustin Hoffman’s Ben that takes place in Ben’s rooming house room in “The Graduate.” “You’ll excuse me if I don’t shake your hand.” I laugh every time I’ve seen it. Also Norman Fell was great as the landlord.

    How do you mention Ferris Bueller in this thread and not post this scene?
