Ferris Bueller's Day Off is the subject of this week's show, and the host's discuss how John Hughes encouraged the actors to improvise during many of the film's key scenes. Praise is thrown at Matthew Broderick, Alan Ruck, Mia Sara, and Edie McClurg. Then, the guys tiptoe around Jeffrey Jones' (Mr. Rooney) recent troubles. The Crash Test Dummies' classic, Keep A Lid On Things, is played, and the show wraps with a chat about Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight.
