As The Breakfast Club Turns 30 We Celebrate The 10 Best Quotes

The Breakfast ClubREX

A brain, a beauty, a jock, a rebel and a recluse. On Saturday, March 24, 1984, five students schlepped into their high school library for an all-day detention and three decades later we're still talking about it.

The Breakfast Club turned 30 this weekend - 30 years since the opening credits rolled and Simple Minds' 'Don't You (Forget About Me)' blasted out, becoming an instant anthem for adolescent misfits and transforming teen angst into a popular Hollywood franchise.

A princess, an athlete, a brain, a basket-case and a criminal: they soon became known as 'The Brat Pack' and the decade was dominated by their off-screen antics.

It made stars out of Emilio Estevez, Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald and Ally Sheedy - and got most teens in their '80s reaching for oversized goth jumpers, knee high boots and kohl.

To celebrate our favourite '80s teen movie turning 30, we're celebrating The Breakfast Club's best quotes:

Andrew Clark: We're all pretty bizarre. Some of us are just better at hiding it, that's all.

John Bender: Does Barry Manilow know that you raid his wardrobe?

Claire Standish: You know why guys like you knock everything?
John Bender: Oh, this should be stunning.
Claire Standish: It's because you're afraid.

John Bender: You get along with your parents?
Andrew Clark: Well, if I say yes I'm an idiot, right?
John Bender: You're an idiot anyway. But if you say you get along with your parents, well, you're a liar too.

Claire Standish: Why didn't you want me to know that you are a virgin?
Brian Johnson: Because it's my business - my personal business.
John Bender: Well, Brian, it doesn't sound like you're doing any business.

John Bender: Hey, homeboy, what do you say we close that door, we'll get the prom queen impregnated.

Andrew Clark: What do you need a fake I.D. for?
