Faintly remembered scene from movie?

What is the (John Hughes?) movie in which a pompous kid is lecturing someone else and -- instead of punctuating his/her points by saying "One", "Two", "Three" -- instead carelessly separates those points by saying something like "One", "B", and "Four"?

TVTropes calls it Counting To Potato.

The first example on the list is Home Alone. Is that what you were thinking of?

I believe Duckie Dale does this in Pretty in Pink, but I cant seem to find a clip or quote.

I think it's The Geek/Farmer Ted (Anthony Michael Hall) in 16 Candles. Looking for the clip now.

Definitely Buzz in Home Alone.

My wife, who knows Pretty in Pink nearly by heart says it's not Duckie.

Buzz in Home Alone for sure. I've seen that movie over 200 times (yes, really), and it's definitely Buzz in Home Alone.

It's in Sixteen Candles when AMH is talking to his guys about scoring with MR.



I'll get it all.


Take off.

You wouldn't be able

to prove it anyway.


"A," don't hit me.


Secondly, what kind

of proof do you want?



Video.

Video.
