The Breakfast Club shows that these people, who believe they are very different, are actually very similar. On one end of the spectrum we have Claire, the ‘princess’, who is stuck in detention for skipping class to go shopping and on the other end, we have John, the criminal, where being in detention was not out of the ordinary. In between, we have Brian the brain, the athletic Andrew, and Allison the ‘basket case’. These are five students, where in regular circumstances would not even acknowledge each other. Claire, in an important sequence of the movie, says as much by stating, “Oh, be honest, Andy... if Brian came walking up to you in the hall on Monday, what would you do? I mean picture this, you're there with all the sports.” John Hughes uses this scene to present just how important the high school class system is among students, with the fear of not fitting in with those ‘like them’, as Claire finishes her statement, “I know exactly what you'd do, you'd say hi to him and when he left you'd cut him all up so your friends wouldn't think you really liked him!” Detention for the Breakfast Club was one of the most important events in their high school career, because it taught them what a book or teacher cannot; that underneath, we’re all the same, despite who we try to be and what our ‘clique’ might be.

I run out of the office but forget which way to go. My instinct tells me left so I take it. And then another left. I find my way to the spelling room, but something catches my eye. I look at the chalkboard that displayed roughly seven words last time I checked. The only word on the board now is “help”. I turn to sprint down…

    The hallway is lit by a single light attached to the middle of the popcorn ceiling. There used to be two lights but one bulb flickered and died leaving the hallway dim. The popcorn ceiling is picked off and gone in some spots, mostly around the light and close to the walls. There are also a few tan stains that are darker around the edges and lighter almost white as they go in. The stains might be water stains from who ever lived in the house before.

    “Basically, why are you here? I think.” I asked a final time, and Hugh took a closer look inside the cell at the man, his face rested against the bars. Hugh showed no fear. The man leapt up and took the notepad from the rock. He scurried to the puddle, fiddling for the pencil which lay submerged in the filthy water. I urged him to talk to me. “Ne!” he harked back at me, as best he could. His mood had changed. He pulled his hand away from the puddle clutching the pencil, and he scribbled…
