  • Executive Meddling: The studio wanted a scene involving a sexual situation, since this was a teen movie in The Eighties and movies like Porky's were still on executives' minds. So Hughes wrote and filmed a scene where Vernon spies on a female teacher (played by Karen Leigh Hopkins) swimming nude in the school's swimming pool. Obviously, Hughes ended up cutting out this scene entirely because it hurt the tone of the film.
  • What Could Have Been: Ally Sheedy and Molly Ringwald actually auditioned for the others' role. Emilio Estevez was originally cast as Bender, but when no suitable actor was found for the part of Andy, he agreed to take that instead, and let Judd Nelson play Bender instead
    • In addition, Rick Moranis was originally cast as Carl, but he left due to creative differences and was replaced by John Kapelos.
    • Hughes considered a sequel detailing what would happen upon the club's return to school the following Monday, but realized that it would be too complex a story to tell in film, and would be a logistical nightmare with regards to the actors reprising their roles. He danced around the idea of a novel, but ultimately never got around to it.
