* WordOfGay: Both Molly Ringwald and Jon Cryer have agreed that after high school, Duckie came out of the closet and is currently a HardGay, wearing no shirt and suspenders and attending Gay Pride events. Could be considered WordOfDante, of course.
** Keep in mind, though, that John Hughes originally wanted Andie and Duckie to end up together, so this is not really WordOfGod.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen : Jodie Foster turned down the role of Andie. Anjelica Huston and Tracey Ullman were both considered for Iona.
