Ahh Chris Knight, thats a good one - he was a real smart **** as well as a real genius.

Spackler and Webb - absolute champions.

You know I have not actually seen Hollywood Knights but will look into it.

I think there is definitely room for improvement on my 5 original but I doubt Spicoli or Bender could be taken off that list.

Moving Violations - Classic. I just watched that the other day after not seeing it for almost 20 years.

I have to agree with you on the Monte Capuletti.

"How old are you?"

"I'm this."

Some great characters coming in.

" Well call me when you're this?"

It is funny how Ed Rooney has made it on the list as a cool guy as well as a loser on the top 5 loser thread.

To me he is in no way cool. A complete loser in the true sense of the word.

HI all, I am back!!!! I saw this one and had to respond to it. There are tons of characters floating through my brain so I will try to put the ones that have meant the most for me.

I have to say that they would all be number one in my book so I am going to just randomly list them. Here goes....

1. JAKE RYAN--The God of all Gods!!

2. Peter Venkman-every girl must have a man to make her laugh.

3. John McClane--every girl needs a guy who can protect her.

4. Irwin Fletcher-every girl needs a guy who can get her out of anything...

5. Ferris Bueller--let's just say that every girl needs a guy like this PERIOD!!!
