"Thanks for getting my undies back."

 "Does Barry Manilow know you raid his wardrobe?"

"I'd rather be with someone for the wrong reasons 
then alone for the right."

Memorable characters.
Quotes that last a lifetime.

Let's face it, guys, John Hughes was the master of Young Adult fiction. 
True, his stories were told on the big screen rather than small print, 
but it doesn't lessen their awesomeness or the influence they've had on multiple generations.

Personally, I've been a Hughes junkie since I was first introduced 
to a certain hot, humble senior with a red Porsche and the 
swagger to make Topsiders look cool. 
(Mmm hmm, you know who)
And because my devotion for all things Hughes,
 I nearly wet myself the day I saw a 
Cupid's Arrow submission asking one of us
to profess our love for John Hughes.
(Seriously, I squealed like a school girl)

Jessica R.'s submission actually requested a profession of
love puppet show style, but since I'm not allowed to handle puppets
(the statue of limitations runs out soon)
I thought I'd present this video instead:

For the Love of Hughes
by: rookieriter


  1. Those bear video things are SO CREEPY. *shudders*

    Hehe, but YAY John Hughes! And congrats, Lizzy!!

  2. This is exactly what I needed today. Love John Hughes.

  3. Aw, for some reason it won't let me watch the video :( I'm imagining lots of John Hughes love, though. And those bears look close enough to puppets, so I forgive you ;)

  4. one of the thirtysomething Valentines, I should know this, but I don't. Was John Hughes responsible for Say Anything too? Because I am still waiting for the guy with the boombox. Okay okay, I will allow an iPod with external speakers, I suppose :) But anything with John Cusack FTW.

    Great job, Bethany!

  5. Um, I'm pretty sure I'm going to have a nightmare tonight involving the boy bear wielding a knife and saying something like, "Don't worry, it'll be over soon" in his creepy, robotic-like voice, lol ;)

    That was so awesome, though!! YAY John Hughes!!!

  6. "I'd rather be with someone for the wrong reasons
    than alone for the right."

    OMGOSH! MY FAVE HUGHES MOVIE EVAH. *blissful sigh*

    And *snorts*, that little boy puppy-bear is oblivious. I think maybe she should've killed him at the end. It would've been very satisfying.

    What? He had it coming. TSTL

    Thanks for the laughs and wonderful memories, pallie. <3

  7. This is hilarious! Just watched a John Hughes last night! The title escapes me, but it's Watts and Eric Stolz...Some Kind of Wonderful...I think...Love that one!

  8. Let's face it, guys, John Hughes was the master of Young Adult fiction."

    Oh, snap Bethany! YES! So right.

    The Breakfast Club FOREVER.:)

    <3 the video!
