From The Nest – The Secret Squirrel

This weeks quote comes from one of the great teen flicks of the 80’s, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.

“The key to faking out the parents is the clammy hands. It’s a good non-specific symptom. I’m a big believer in it. A lot of people will tell you a good phoney fever is a deadlock, but you get a nervous mother, and you could wind up in a doctor’s office – that’s worse than school. You fake a stomach cramp, and when you’re bent over moaning and wailing, you lick your palms. It’s a little childish and stupid, but then, so is high school” – Ferris Bueller, from Ferris Buellers Day Off.
