|First reference:||Betty, Part 1|
The Breakfast Club is the 1985 film that focuses on five high school students, their stereotypes, and forging bonds with others.
After a jock trips Ren Metzger in the cafeteria of their high school, Ren tells Betty that he takes comfort in thinking of the home life of his bullies. He says, "C'mon, did you see The Breakfast Club? They're all afraid of their daddies." Ren says he hopes "they're shakin' in their cleats when they don't get a touchdown. That means an automatic beating at home."
Betty conjures an illusion of Crash's father and terrifies the boy in his high school locker room. He says things to Crash like "never loved you anyway," and "should've drowned you at birth, boy!" Like The Breakfast Club's Andrew, Crash is psychologically hurt by these degrading remarks from a tough father.
"I taped Larry Lester's buns together....I did it for my old man. I tortured this poor kid, because I wanted him to think that I was cool....I got the feeling that he was disappointed that I never cut loose on anyone, right....I started thinking about my father, and his attitude about weakness....It's all because of me and my old man. Oh God, I ... hate him! He's like this mindless machine that I can't even relate to anymore. 'Andrew, you've got to be number one! I won't tolerate any losers in this family....Win. Win! WIN!!!' You son of a bitch!"
