A high school wise guy is determined to have a day off from school, despite what the Principal thinks of that.

Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.
– Ferris

Ferris Bueller, you’re my hero.
– Cameron

… You’re still here? It’s over!
– Ferris

Bueller?… Bueller?… Bueller?
– Economics Teacher

Not that I condone fascism, or any -ism for that matter. -Ism’s in my opinion are not good. A person should not believe in an -ism, he should believe in himself. I quote John Lennon, “I don’t believe in Beatles, I just believe in me.” Good point there. After all, he was the walrus. I could be the walrus. I’d still have to bum rides off people.
– Ferris

When Cameron was in Egypt’s land… let my Cameron go!”
– Cameron

He’ll keep calling me, he’ll keep calling me until I come over. He’ll make me feel guilty. This is uh… This is ridiculous, ok I’ll go, I’ll go, I’ll go, I’ll go, I’ll go. What – I’LL GO. Shit.
– Cameron

Pardon my French, but Cameron is so tight that if you stuck a lump of coal up his ass, in two weeks you’d have a diamond.
– Ferris

The 1961 Ferrari 250GT California. Less than a hundred were made. My father spent three years restoring this car. It is his love, it is his passion.
– Cameron
It is his fault he didn’t lock the garage.
– Ferris

Pardon my French, but you’re an asshole! Asshole!
– Cameron

Cameron has never been in love – at least, nobody’s ever been in love with him. If things don’t change for him, he’s gonna marry the first girl he lays, and she’s gonna treat him like shit, because she will have given him what he has built up in his mind as the end-all, be-all of human existence. She won’t respect him, ’cause you can’t respect somebody who kisses your ass. It just doesn’t work.
– Ferris

Hi. Do you speak English?
– Ferris
Uh, what country do you think this is?
– Garage Attendant

Where’s your brain?
– Ferris
Why’d you kick me?
– Cameron
Where’s your brain?
– Ferris
Why’d you kick me?
– Cameron
Where’s your brain?
– Ferris
I asked you first.
– Cameron
How can we pick up Sloane if Rooney is there with her?
– Ferris
I said for her to be there alone and you freaked.
– Cameron
Now, I didn’t hit you. I lightly slapped you.
– Ferris
You hit me. Look don’t make me participate in your stupid crap if you don’t like the way I do it. You make me get out of bed, you make me come over here. You make me make a phony phone call to Edward Rooney? The man could squash my nuts into oblivion. And-and-and then, and then, you deliberately hurt my feelings.
– Cameron

Les jeux sont faits. Translation: the game is up. Your ass is mine.
– Ed Rooney

I am not going to sit on my ass as the events that affect me unfold to determine the course of my life. I’m going to take a stand. I’m going to defend it. Right or wrong, I’m going to defend it.
– Cameron

Oh, he’s very popular Ed. The sportos, the motorheads, geeks, sluts, bloods, wastoids, dweebies, dickheads – they all adore him. They think he’s a righteous dude.
– Grace

Drugs?
– Boy in Police Station
Thank you, no. I’m straight.
– Jeannie
I meant, are you in here for drugs?
– Boy in Police Station
Why are you here?
– Jeannie
Drugs.
– Boy in Police Station

Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?
– Economics Teacher
Um, he’s sick. My best friend’s sister’s boyfriend’s brother’s girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who’s going with the girl who saw Ferris pass out at 31 Flavors last night. I guess it’s pretty serious.
– Simone
Thank you, Simone.
– Economics Teacher
No problem whatsoever.
– Simone

So THAT’s how it is in their family…
– Ed Rooney

The key to faking out the parents is the clammy hands. It’s a good non-specific symptom; I’m a big believer in it. A lot of people will tell you that a good phony fever is a dead lock, but, uh… you get a nervous mother, you could wind up in a doctor’s office. That’s worse than school. You fake a stomach cramp, and when you’re bent over, moaning and wailing, you lick your palms. It’s a little childish and stupid, but then, so is high school.
