The Breakfast Club is the story of five students at Shermer High School who have to report at 7:00 a.m. on Saturday, March 24, 1984 for an all-day detention. Each comes from a different clique: stuck-up Claire Standish (Molly Rignwald), geek Brian Johnson (Anthony Michael Hall), wrestler Andrew Clark (Emelio Estevez), rebellious John Bender (Judd Nelson) and outcast Allison Reynolds (Ally Sheedy).
The five of them gather in the school library, where assistant principal Richard Vernon (Paul Gleason) instructs them not to talk, move from their seats or sleep until they are released at 4:00 p.m. He assigns them a thousand-word essay, in which each must describe ‘Who you think you are’.
“We’re all pretty bizarre. Some of us are just better at hiding it, that’s all.” – Andrew Clark
“What if your home, your family… What if your dope was on fire?” – Richard Vernon
“Impossible, sir. It’s in Johnson’s underwear.” – John Bender
“You know, there’s not supposed to be any monkey business.” – Brian Johnson
“Young man, have you finished your paper?” – John Bender
“Why do you need a fake ID?” – Andrew Clark
“To vote.” – Brian Johnson
