***It's not just people who identify with loons and fringes, I dont, and she look hot as hell before as a sexy GothGirl, and several of my fellow students in a class of psychollogy where the movie was played thought the same and they are the stereotypical jocks. Yet, it is possible that for the 80s standards her look was very weird, not so much for today's.

** Maybe he assumed another teacher put her on detention that day and forgot to tell him? Personally I didn't get the feeling that he knew what each of the kids were there for, except Bender and maybe Andy (since a student gluing another one's ass seems to be something the Principal would get involved in). Perhaps teachers just tell him during the week that this and that student will be there on Saturday for detention, so he knows he'll have to be at school Saturday morning, but Vernon's a busy guy, so weekend comes and he already forgot who exactly was supposed to be there and why, and assumes that the only reason a student would have to be on a school at Saturday morning is that they did something wrong; which also explains why he doesn't bother to check the attendance.

*** I liked the way she looked before the makeover better, but as is pointed out, she would be happier after the makeover. Her first appearance gave her a slightly otherworldly look, which I like because I like stories about TheFairFolk. But her second appearance made her seem more human, and that's what she wanted. She may or may not decide to stay "normal", but she needed to know that she had the option.

* Why did Vernon allow Allison to stay in detention? It seems like he didn't know she wasn't supposed to be there, but surely he must have?

* 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.

** Claire being driven fits the princess archetype, based on that logic. It might not happen in real life, but fiction sometimes sacrifices realism for character development. This would show her "pampered" lifestyle. As a minimum, it serves to contrast her parental relationship from the other characters. Although her parents can afford to buy her a car, they want to go and be involved in her life... or the dad is doing it to get back at the mom (as Claire expands on earlier in the film). He's competing for her affection. I had no idea a parent/guardian teaching you to drive was a thing in America?

What year in school are they supposed to be in?
We see 4 of the 5 (excluding Bender), being driven. This possibly implies they haven't turned 16 yet (making them most likely freshman/sophomores.) Bender takes himself, but whether that is because of neglect on his parents part, or him being older than the rest, I don't know. (considering his rebellious, slacker attitude, it is likely he failed at least one grade

**The essay was not something Asst Principal Vernon could really make the students do. Sitting in school all day on a Saturday is the defined punishment. What's he going to do? Turn in the omni-essay written by Brian and tell his boss "Hey Principal, these kids only finished one essay". Claire and Andrew want him to write the essay so they feel covered. Allison (who really does not have to be there) and Bender don't care about the essay. BTW: the length of an essay is not as important as its content.

*** Skipped class to go shopping. Her dad says it as he drops her off.

**** Bender - Fire Alarm, Claire - skipped class, Andrew - taped a kid's bare butt up in gym (the kid lost hair and skin, Brian - had a gun in his locker (his dad's) and Allison had nothing better to do (which implies she could have gotten out of it by simply asking why she was in detention)
