I'd forgotten how hysterically funny Ferris Bueller is.
It's a real one-of-a-kind classic. And I'm only 15 minutes into it! :rofl:

2. "who is it?... oh I'm sorry, I can't come to the door right now...
"...I'm afraid that, in my weakened condition, I could take a nasty spill down the stairs and subject myself to further school absences... You can reach my parents at their places of business... Well, thank you for stopping by. I appreciate your concern for my well being... Have a nice day! ...."

3. Can you believe no soundtrack was ever released?
I'd get it just for Dream Academy's instrumental version of Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want.

Oh Yeah!

4. Are you talking about the music from the museum scene?
I didn't even know that was an actual song. I've always known it as that cool museum music.

6. That's exactly the scene.
Saw it in the theatre. I had recognized the song, but I had to hang around for the credits (back in '86, before there were any video rental stores) to find out who did the music.

Far as I know, it's never been released commercially.

7. Wow. Well, that's what I get for being born in 1980.
I was seven the first time I saw Ferris Bueller's Day off.

9. One of my friends
spent a year trying to track down all the music. And this was back when it was released, so there was no iTunes.

11. I take it they didn't find that particular song?

One can always ask hopefully. :)

EDIT: Apparently it's on this collection.

15. OMG!
That's seriously one of the ultimate classics. No one should be allowed to enter adulthood without seeing this movie first.

"He'll keep calling me. He'll make me feel guilty. I'll go, I'll go, I'll go, I'll go."

"Well, with your bad knee, Ed, you shouldn't be throwing anyone. It's true."

"Do you have a kiss for Daddy?"

Just classic. :rofl:
