"Bueller … Bueller … Bueller"
Ferris Bueller doesn't get his day off from school in "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" without knowing his way around a computer. We pick up the scene where his mother is being told over the phone by Principal Ed Rooney that her darling son has been absent nine times this semester.
Katie Bueller: I don't remember him being sick nine times.
Ed Rooney: That's probably because he wasn't sick. He was skipping school. Wake up and smell the coffee, Mrs.Bueller. It's a fool's paradise. He is just leading you down the primrose path.
Katie Bueller: I can't believe it.
Ed Rooney: I've got it right here in front of me. He has missed nine days...
[His computer screen begins counting down from nine to two. Ferris is at home looking at the same screen.]
Ferris: I asked for a car, I got a computer. How's that for being born under a bad sign?
