    That is always how I'll remember him, the bad ass punk teacher that acts like he owns the school. Not many actors could pull it off back in the '80s.

    I wont miss him too much but I'll be watching breakfast club a few more times this summer.

    You all shouldnt miss him too much either, because when the world is done with us, and we go to heaven, guess who'll be showing us the ropes/rules of heaven, and giving us detention whenever we even consider bending them ... ... thats right ... 'I got YOU, for 3 hours I GOT you!"

    Just bought the Breakfast Club again (seem to have lost my first copy). He is great in that movie and I have seen him in a couple of other movies. Great actor. Sad he has left us.

    I always thought the tension between us is because I slept with your daughter?

    You slept with my daughter?
