Remembering John Hughes

The Interwebs are abuzz today remembering John Hughes (American, Conservative, Artist).  An omitted soliloquy from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off:

FERRIS
My uncle went to Canada to protest
the war, right? On the Fourth of
July he was down with my aunt and he
got drunk and told my Dad he felt
guilty he didn’t fight in Viet Nam.
So I said, “What’s the deal, Uncle
Jeff? In wartime you want to be a
pacifist and in peacetime you want
to be a soldier. It took you twenty
years to find out you don’t believe
in anything?”
(snaps his fingers)
Grounded. Just like that. Two weeks.
(pause)
Be careful when you deal with old
hippies. They can be real touchy.
