* FollowTheLeader: After this movie became hugely successful, many teen shows throughout the next decade or so (particularly those aimed at children) implemented a Ferris Bueller-like character (i.e. Zack Morris from ''Series/SavedByTheBell'', Ronnie Pinsky from ''SaluteYourShorts'', Parker Lewis from ''Series/ParkerLewisCantLose'', etc.). Some of these were just shallow/one-dimensional caricatures of Ferris; others weren't.

Added DiffLines:

* InspectorJavert[=/=]LawfulStupid: Dean Rooney. Say what you will about Ferris being manipulative, but dropping a flowerpot on a dog's head and breaking into a student's house is taking things ''too far''. In retrospect, even if Rooney's plan had succeeded, he wouldn't have been holding Ferris back under his "personal supervision" - he'd have been fired. (At least in any real life situation.)

* CreativeClosingCreditsCreativeClosingCredits: A screen alongside the credits reel shows the now-humiliated Rooney get on a standard school bus (because he illegally parked in front of the Buellers' and his car was towed) and meet a bunch of students, almost all of whom give him a DeathGlare (there's also a TakeThat directed towards Rooney scribbled on the roof of the bus).
