I forgot all about mentioning Ducky from "Pretty in Pink". I LOVED HIM!!
And I'd like to direct you to a post about John Hughes that helped me understand why he was so admired and why his movies resonated with us all so deeply. Get out your hankies...
The Blog is "We'll Know When We Get There" and the post is "Sincerely, John Hughes"
