My choice for Monologue of the Week from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

My choice for Monologue of the Week from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off: “No, forget it. Forget it. I gotta take a stand. I’m bullshit. I put up with everything. My old man pushes me around. I never say anything! Well, he’s not the problem. I’m the problem. I gotta take a stand. I gotta take a stand against him. I am not gonna sit on my ass as the events that affect me unfold to determine the course of my life. I’m gonna take a stand. I’m gonna defend it. Right or wrong, I’m gonna defend it. (repeatedly kicks his dad’s sports car which is running in reverse and up on a jack) I am so sick of his shit! I can’t stand him and I hate his goddamn mouth! Who do you love? Who do you love? You love a car! You son of a bitch! (stops kicking car and looks at it) Shit. (chuckles) I dented the shit out of it. (laughs) Good! My father will come home. He’ll see what I did. I can’t hide this. He’ll come home, he’ll see what I did, he’ll have to deal with me. I don’t care. I really don’t. I’m just tired of being afraid. Hell with him. I can’t wait to see the look on the bastard’s face. (leans on running car and it falls off jack, the car flies out of the garage and falls about 30 feet into the woods, the car is destroyed) What’d I do? What’d I do? (long pause) Whoa! Holy shit! (calmly) No. I’ll take the heat. No, I’ll take it. I want it. If I didn’t want it I wouldn’t have let you take the car out this morning. I could’ve stopped you. It is possible to stop Mr. Ferris Bueller, you know. No. I want it. I’m gonna take it. When Morris comes home, he and I will just have a little chat. It’s cool. No, it’s gonna be good. Thanks anyway.” -Cameron Frye (Alan Ruck)
