I took my girlfriend to an improv show the other night and during intermission we were passionately arguing over whether half a 5 Hour Energy shot would give you 2.5 hours of energy or 5 hours of half-assed energy so we turned around to ask the opinions of the three people behind us and one of them said “Are all your arguments like this because we heard you in the lobby earlier fighting over the right way to pronounce ‘egg’?”

"We’re all pretty bizarre. Some of us are just better at hiding it, that’s all."
This scene is so powerful. How many teenager suffers from child abuse but do not have the voice to say it out loud? or worse - they got ignored when they ask for help? Bender has been trying to tell adults how he suffers from violence in his own home, but no one believes him because of his bad boy reputation. What happens when you are in the edge of breaking down and you have no one to run to? This is a fragile, 17-year-old Bender releasing his frustation the only way he know how. He is not acting out, this is a cry for help.
Judd Nelson made an indelible mark on Ally Sheedy before his actual audition began. “We were upstairs”, says Sheedy of herself, Ringwald, Hall, and Estevez. “We had all gotten cast except for Judd’s part. We were walking up to go to the office, and he was actually outside the building, hitting a ball against the wall. He is very graceful and beautiful,” says Sheedy, “and he is very dark. Not just in the way he looks, in the way he is. He has this complicated thing.” While throwing the tennins ball against the wall, waiting to be called into the audition room, Nelson was listening to music on his walkman, the music Bender would listen to, and he had the volume pumped up as loud as it would go. “I was listening to The Sex Pistols’s ‘Holiday in the Sun,’” remembers Nelson. “There was this little outdoor area where I am waiting to go in and read. I have a tennis ball and I am throwing it against the wall, with this thing blasting about as loud as it could go. Minding my own business. I get this tap—someone tells me, ‘You’ve gotta calm down.’” Interestingly, this interference actually helped Nelson get even more in touch with Bender’s anger. “I go, ‘What?!?” remembers Nelson. “He says, ‘You’re throwing this ball too loud,’ and I go, ‘WHAT?!! And I walk around a bit, and smoke a cigarette.” By the time Nelson walked into the audition room, he had completely inhabited Bender. “He was acting like he was that guy,” remembers Michelle Manning.
