Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986)
Grace: Oh, Ed. You just sounded like Dirty Harry just then.
Ed Rooney: Really? Thanks, Grace.

Grace: Oh, he's very popular Ed. The sportos, the motorheads, geeks, sluts, bloods, wastoids, dweebies, dickheads - they all adore him. They think he's a righteous dude.

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... It's true.
Ed Rooney: What is so dangerous about a character like Ferris Bueller is he gives good kids bad ideas.
Grace: Mmm-hmm.
Ed Rooney: 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 effectivley govern this student body.
Grace: Well, makes you look like an ass is what he does, Ed.
Ed Rooney: Thank you, Grace. I think you're wrong.
Grace: Oh, he's very popular Ed. The sportos, the motorheads, geeks, sluts, bloods, wastoids, dweebies, dickheads - they all adore him. They think he's a righteous dude.

Cameron: [disguised] Yeah. Yeah. Well, uh, it's been a tough morning and we got a lot of family business to take care of, so if you wouldn't mind excusing Sloane, I'd appreciate it.
Ed Rooney: Uh, yeah, sure, no I'd be happy to, yeah you, uh, you you just produce a corpse, and uh, I'll release Sloane. I wanna see this dead grandmother first hand.

Ed Rooney: It's alright, Grace, it's Ferris Bueller the little twerp. I'm gonna set a trap and let him fall right in it.
Grace: Ooh!

Ed Rooney: You pinhead.
Sloane: [sobbing] If you need to reach us, we'll be at the following number...

Jeannie: Is Mr. Rooney in?
Grace: No, I'm sorry. He's not. May I help you?
Jeannie: I seriously doubt it. When's he back?
Grace: Well, I don't know. He's left the school grounds on personal business.
Jeannie: What's that supposed to mean?
Grace: Well, I believe that it's personal and it's none of your business, young lady.
Jeannie: [scoffs] Nice attitude.
Grace: Isn't Mrs. Hagel expecting you in Consumer Ed. class?
Jeannie: Probably.
[Departs]
Grace: Mmm-mmm-mmm. What a little asshole.
