Hughes’ characters provide the laughter and develop the story too. Austerlitz notes, “He’s been lauded for the wit and delicacy of his dialogue, but his is a highly stylized form of aimless chatter.” Make no mistake; humor in The Breakfast Club resides within the conversational lingo of its characters. “Face it nerd you’re…

It was…

If I were to tell based on what I understand in his point of view, he don’t want Filipinos to revolt yet, because he knew that this will not succeed. But on the other hand, I think that he supported it on his own ways.

Claire Standish, played by Molly Ringwald, was first introduced in a shiny, silver BMW speaking of how she could not believe her dad could not get her out of this situation.
