Twist And Shout

I'm sitting in the hotel room here in Baton Rouge channel surfing and I just came across one of the funniest movies of the 80's at the point of one of the best scenes in the film; "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" and the Chicago street parade scene where Ferris sings "Twist and Shout" while the parade goers and even nearby workers (including his dad in an office above him) sing and dance along.

I love that scene.

Just thought you'd like to know.

HAHAH you know what I remember from that movie? The scene where they were delivering a Get Well bouquet with the hot nurse and J and I spent forever trying to figure out what that LAST word was she would say before the door got slammed in her face. It drove us crazy hehehe.

Here's what the shooting script shows for that scene:

180 EXT. HOUSE. FRONT DOOR 180

The door swings open.

JEANIE
Thank...you...

Her jaw goes slack. She blinks her eyes.

HER POV

The Delivery Man and a young ASSISTANT are standing at the
door with floral arrangements. Spread all around them are
more flowers. A sexy singing NURSE and a BALLOON MAN steps
up on the porch.

NURSE
(sings)
WE HOPE YOU'RE FEELING BETTER
WE HOPE YOU'RE FELLING FIT
WE...

The door slams shut.

I didn't catch all of the movie this time, but I thought there was more to it than that.
