Cameron: Ferris, my father loves this car more than life itself.
Ferris: A man with priorities so far out of whack doesn't deserve such a fine automobile.
Cameron: No. No! Apparently, you don't understand!
Ferris: Wow.
Cameron: Ferris, he never drives it! He just rubs it with a diaper!


Ed Rooney: I don't trust this kid any further than I can throw him.
Grace: Well, with your bad knee Ed, you shouldn't throw anybody... Its true.
Ed Rooney: What is so dangerous about a character like Ferris Bueller is he gives good kids bad ideas. Last thing I need at this point in my career is fifteen hundred Ferris Bueller disciples running around these halls. He jeopardizes my ability to effectively govern this student body.
Grace: He makes you look like an ass, is what he does, Ed.
Ed Rooney: Thank you Grace, but I think you're wrong.
Grace: Oh, he's very popular, Ed. The sportos, the motorheads, geeks, sluts, bloods, wasteoids, dweebies, dickheads — they all adore him. They all think he's a righteous dude.
Ed Rooney: That is why I need to show these kids that the example he sets is a first-class-ticket-to-nowhere!
Grace: Oh, Ed. You sounded like Dirty Harry just then.
Ed Rooney: Really? Thanks, Grace.

Excuse me. If whoever's in the house is still in the house, I'd like you to know that I have just called the police. If you have any brains whatsoever, you'll get your ass out of my house real quick. I'd also like to add that I have my father's gun. And a scorching case of herpes.

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

Druggie: [to Jeanie] You wear too much eye makeup. My sister wears too much. People think she's a whore.

Cameron: Okay Ferris, can we just let it go, please?
Sloane: Ferris, please. You've gone too far. We're going to get busted.
Ferris: A: You can never go too far. B: If I'm gonna get busted, it is not gonna be by a guy like that.

Ed Rooney: [talking to Cameron on the phone (who is posing as Sloane's father), thinking it is Ferris] Tell you what dipshit, if you don't like my policies, you can come down here and smooch my big ol' white butt.
Grace: Ed!
Ed Rooney: Pucker up, buttercup. [to Grace] What?
Grace: Ferris Bueller's on line two.

I did not achieve this position in life by having some snot-nosed punk leave my cheese out in the wind.

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.

Call me 'sir', goddamn it! (to Edward Rooney over the phone, impersonating Sloane Peterson's father)

Sloan:: The city looks so peaceful from up here.
Ferris: Anything looks peaceful from one thousand three hundred and fifty-three feet.
Cameron: I think I see my dad.

Ferris: Four thousand restaurants in the downtown area, I pick the one my father goes to.
Cameron: We're pinched, for sure.
Ferris: Only the meek get pinched. The bold survive. [adjusts his beret] Let's go.
Cameron: Let's surrender.
Ferris: Never.

Cameron: [Ferris slowly pulls the Ferrari out of the garage] No, Ferris. I'm putting my foot down. You're just gonna have to think of something else. Ferris! We could call a limo! One of those stretch jobs with the TV and the bar. How about that?
Ferris: [Ferris pulls the car back slightly] Come on. Live a little!

Ferris: Cameron, babe! What's happening?
Cameron: Very little.
Ferris: Is your mother in the room?
Cameron: She's in Decatur. Unfortunately she's not staying.

Ferris: Where's your brain?
Cameron: Why'd you kick me?
Ferris: Where's your brain?
Cameron: Why'd you kick me?
Ferris: Where's your brain?
Cameron: I asked you first.
Ferris: How can we pick up Sloane if Rooney is there with her?
Cameron: I said for her to be there alone and you freaked.
Ferris: Now, I didn't hit you. I lightly slapped you.
Cameron: 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.
