A poor girl must choose between the affections of dating her childhood sweetheart or a rich but sensitive playboy.
Anthony Michael Hall was originally approached by Hughes to play Duckie, but he declined citing " a redundancy issue. Another movie with two guys and a girl." Hall is referring to Sixteen Candles (1984), another John Hughes movie he starred in also with a love triangle involving a cool rich guy, an insecure ingenue and a nerdy outsider as the center of its story.
This is an incredibly romantic moment, and you're ruining it for me!
