** It's also entirely possible that they genuinely don't see it as being cruel at all. After all, we live in a society that tells people that if you work hard and achieve, you can get whatever you want. Obviously that isn't true but it's still something people willingly buy in to, and there are probably thousands of cases of parents who pressured children through school because to them, a higher grade=better future. And who's to say they know they're the root cause of Brian's detention? He was probably pissing himself at the thought of having to tell his parents he'd be spending a Saturday in detention without mentioning what the exact cause of it was...

* In spite of how controversial Allison's makeover is, if you think about it, in the end she looks exactly how her actor (Ally Sheedy) looked in real life. So her makeover most likely really does symbolize her showing her true self, especially with Andrew saying "I can see your face," [[UnnecessaryMakeover Though the light pink/white blouse and bow was too much]].

** Also remember this took place pre-Columbine in the 80's, before people really began to take kids bringing guns to school seriously. They were probably just dismissive because "oh it was only a flare gun, and he had it in his locker and didn't hurt anyone" so just a slap on the wrist and a detention.

** I was listening for post-production audio echo after reading this (there isn't any). Clever repetition though, yes.

* I noticed when the group is talking in a circle that Bender seems really disengaged. He's almost always seen looking away and not really contributing. What I found interest/ironic was that throughout the whole film, he seem to really look down on Brian. Bender doesn't like Andy, but he takes him more seriously, somewhat like Claire. As for Allison he doesn't seem to mind her. What got me is when Brian is talking about the gun and his potential suicide. You can see at this point Bender doesn't look condescendingly towards him anymore, and this is because Bender is the one most likely to commit suicide. He finally related to him on a level that no one else could.

* If you consider that Brian is basically the narrator of the film (except at the end), the song Don't You (Forget About Me) being the theme actually makes a lot of sense. Brian was the one in the group who brought up the concern about no one staying friends on Monday, so of course he's going to be concerned about being forgotten. Also as the nerd, he's the most likely (apart from Allison) to not be remembered. Finally, at the end of the film, every character narrating signifies that no one wants to be forgotten by each other. Quite touching/sad really.
