Added DiffLines:

* InsultBackfire: Dutch goes into some detail about his working-class roots, and how his father and mother both worked long hours on tough jobs to support him. Doyle sneeringly quips [[SarcasmMode "You must be SO proud."]] Dutch's response:
-->'''Dutch:''' [[SincerityMode "...I am."]]


Added DiffLines:

* SelfMadeMan: Dutch has blue-collar sensibilities, but he owns a construction company and is very well-off financially, something that catches Doyle by surprise:
-->'''Dutch:''' "It's a damn sight more than your father gives your mother to live on. Oh, but my money doesn't count in your neck of the woods, does it? Because I ''worked'' for it."

* RecycledScript: The movie shares its premise (wealthy snob & working-class joe struggle to get home to Chicago for Thanksgiving) with the much-loved ''Film/PlanesTrainsAndAutomobiles''. Incidentally, both films were written by Creator/JohnHughes, which raises the question of whether something like this actually happened to him at some point.

* GilliganCut: Doyle insists that he's not going anywhere with Dutch... cut to his being hauled out of the school tied up and gagged with a pair of underwear in his mouth.

A 1991 RoadTrip comedy written by Creator/JohnHughes, directed by Peter Faiman and starring Creator/EdONeill.

As a favor for his new divorcee girlfriend, working-class construction company owner Dutch Dooley offers to pick up her troubled son Doyle from a special school and take him home for Thanksgiving. Upon arriving at his prep school, Dutch quickly finds that Doyle is ''not'' a nice kid, and has unwavering faith (or perhaps just stubbornness) that his father will show up. Dutch quickly gives up on trying to ingratiate himself to the kid, but sticks it out for his girlfriend's sake. HilarityEnsues.
