Trivia:
While Johnny (Anthony Michael Hall) and Kate (Ally Sheedy) are walked down the hall and she reveals that she had a crush on him in high school, he disagrees, saying that he was a "skinny little nerd" and that she was into the "head-banging guys" in those days. In The Breakfast Club (1985) she played a head-banger, he played a skinny nerd.See more »

Patrick Hanchin - very cool!, 28 July 2007
Author: KBMommy from United States

I love that Patrick Hanchin (hope i spelled his last name right!) was cast in this episode! He seemed so familiar, and then it dawned on me that he was the JANITOR from "Breakfast Club"!! And i'm glad that he got a few funny lines. Good stuff in the bar.

This could have seemed like a ton of annoying stunt casting, but Hanchin and Ally Sheedy were both really good and believable in their roles. I have to write ten lines here, but anything else is going to put me in Spoilerville, and i won't do that!

Ummm.... "Do you have Tourette's or some other social problem?" - his first line - and they continue being interesting and funny. And you know, i would have taken his keys when he got that stinking drunk, but hey, that's just me.

;-)
