* There is also Claire's fairly infamous moment where she tells Brian about how they will most likely forget about each-other come Monday morning at School since they all belong to different Social Cliques and would never fit in with each other. Many viewers wanted to hate her for that and accused her of being horribly selfish while certain viewers have considered it a case to be StrawmanHasAPoint and felt that she was right and they would just ignore each-other after that detention. However when you think about it the idea of them "being in cliques that are just too different" is not really true at all. After all Andy is a well known Athelete in School and is a BigManOnCampus in which Claire's rich schoolgirl friends would most likely be cool with Claire hanging out with Andy in fact they probably would be attracted to Andy since not only is he a known jock but also quite the pretty boy as well. And the only real difference between Bender and Allison's cliques is that she is a loner while Bender had friends before he was in that Detention on that day. However at a first glance Allison looked like one of the folks that Bender would hang out with (which might explain Bender's line "I've seen you before you know" that he said to Allison early in the film). Really when you think about it the only person amongst the five in which Claire's statement has any truth with would be Brian. Namely how Brian is way too much of a Nerd to be seen with the "Popular Kids" like Claire and Jocks like Andy, while Brian is a bit too clean and straight-laced to be with "Bad Kids" like Bender and Allison. (Especially considering how Brian knows that his mother would never approve of him hanging out with the latter two.) So in other words for the most part Claire's idea that they all would ignore each-other due to their far too different cliques is not really true when you think about it.

** Vernon wasn't reading Bender's file. It was of an unrelated kid named "Mr. Tearney." Possibly a faculty member and not even a student.

** No the lines actually stating Bender's shown signs of mental instability, that Vernon attribute to him being messed up suggesting he thinks he's crazy, it being the 80's it never occurs to them to wonder why he's like that.

*** While its got a lot of cynicism, its not so much everyone is like that. One of other main points of this film was to take the common stereotype's and turn then into real people. As such each of the character each has a miserable life adding to how they turned out they way they are (Even with Vernon its implied his behaviour stems from being unsatisfied with his choice of career and feeling constantly disrespected) and is a also a real person with good sides and bad sides. Andy for instance is arguably the nicest member being more or less friendly from the start, continually jumps to others defences, feels incredibly guilty at bullying others and only does it out of peer pressure and his father pushing down on him to much, however at the same time he also jumps to outright threating to assault Bender very quickly (and as shown when actually does, he wasn't bluffing), makes very quick judgements based on appearances and at one point threatens Brian to shut him up when he's annoying him.

When Vernon was reading Bender's file, it was implied that his father's abuse towards him was recorded when he said "no wonder he's so messed up." So, if the school knows that Bender's father abuses him, why did nobody do anything about it? I'm sure even Social Services existed in the 80s.

** I don't buy the "Bender needs a support system" excuse for why Brian had to stay single. Bender is from an abusive home, but Brian was ''contemplating suicide.'' He needed a support system just as much, if not more. It still just reeks of UnfortunateImplications when the nerd is left alone despite being established for being messed up and needing help as much as the other boys.
