Question: Can someone please tell me how old Ferris and Jeanie are? It seems that Ferris is a senior and that would make him about 17 or 18, but then why would Jeanie have a car if she was younger, especially since Ferris says that he asked for a car and didn't get it? If she was older, what would she still be doing in school?
Question: Just before Ferris makes it into his house, Ed Rooney appears and finally catches Ferris. Just as he's about to lay into Ferris, Jeanie appears and covers for him. As soon as Ferris gets in the house, Jeanie shows Ed Rooney his wallet and mentions that she found it on the floor causing him to be shocked. After being chased off by the dog, why did Rooney simply give up?
Question: In the beginning, Cameron is on the phone with Rooney, pretending to be Mr. Peterson, in the Bueller's kitchen. Ferris then calls the office for homework assignments, and he is on the round, red phone from his room. This movie was made in 1986- were phones with dual lines on them available in 1986?
Question: In the US, can you really be taken to a police station for (presumably) making a phony phone call? To me it seems like a waste of resources since it is probably a common occurrence. Also Jeannie would have stuck to her story that it was true...as break-ins do happen all the time.Gavin Jackson
Question: Obviously Sloane knew the moment the nurse came in that she was going to be leaving because Ferris planned the whole thing. But wouldn't it be a bit of a giveaway to the rest of the class and the teacher that she starts putting on her coat and gathering her things before any of them find out why the nurse is there? The nurse could have been coming to see someone else, and if Ferris wanted to make sure he and his friends could have the day off and not get caught by Rooney, shouldn't Sloane have been a bit more subtle or played along as if she didn't know what was going on?
