I think there 's been a mistake. I know we 're in detention but I don 't think I belong here.”- Claire. “No, I don’t wear tights, I wear the required uniform.”-Andrew. 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…

  • The Importance Of Friends In Thailands

    I find it easier and more comfortable to be around the friends that I’ve made here in Thailand than those that I’ve made in the Philippines.
