Very sad, indeed! Who doesn't have a favorite movie that John Hughes didn't have his hands all over?
A fitting tribute would be to turn a quote from Ferris Bueller's Day Off towards the master:

"Oh, he's very popular. The sportos, the motorheads, geeks, sluts, bloods, waistoids, dweebies, dickheads - they all adore him. They think he's a righteous dude".
