Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

Marty: Are you being wise? 
Jackie-O: One day I woke up wise. 
Marty: One day I woke up stupid. 
Jackie-O: What'd you do? 
Marty: I went back to bed. 
Jackie-O: That was wise. 

A happy birthday to the director Mark Waters, who went on from this classic to direct the very good Freaky Friday remake and then up up into the stratosphere with Mean Girls, all of which gave him an awful lot of lifetime credit (which, granted, he's been chipping away at ever since with crap like Mr. Popper's Penguins and Ghosts of Girlfriends Past). Be great again, Mark!
