'The boozehounds return!'



Weirdscience Say what you like about "Weird Science," but it's easily one of the most quotable movies of the John Hughes era.

(Of course, it helps when you have friends like Sean Daly, who actually does wear a bra on his head from time to time. "For facial-muscular support," he swears.)

This week's Stuck in the 80s podcast will answer a lingering question: Is "Weird Science" a disappointing, goofball piece of comic trash ... or is it a guilty pleasure that celebrates a level of humor we've long since chosen to ignore, much to our own detriment?

Wait until Saturday for our well-researched and thoroughly reasonable arguments. In the meantime, help us devise a special Top 10 list for the podcast: Top 10 Memorable Quotes from Weird Science. Here are my favorites. No surprise, they're all from "Chet," who has the same haircut as me:

  • "You're stewed, buttwad!"
  • "The boozehounds return!"
  • "He pukes, you die."
  • "I'm gonna tell Mom and Dad everything. I'm even considering makin' up some s--t!"
  • "How 'bout a nice greasy pork sandwich served in a dirty ashtray?"
