The Breakfast Club

In the 1985 classic John Hughes film The Breakfast Club, tough-guy John Bender makes the rounds among his fellow detention-servers at lunchtime. When the "criminal" (Bender) approaches the "brain" (Brian Johnson), a familiar name comes up in conversation.

BENDER: What are we having?

BRIAN: Just your standard regular lunch, I guess.

[BENDER takes out insulated container]

BENDER: Milk?

BRIAN: Soup.

[BENDER takes out juice carton]

BRIAN: Um. That's apple juice.

BENDER: I can read....PB&J with the crusts cut off. Well, Brian. This is a very nutritious lunch. All the food groups are represented. Did your mom marry Mister Rogers?

BRIAN: Uh, no. Mr. Johnson.

BENDER: Ah.
