    Default I need some help

    This has been driving me crazy. I remember seeing a movie back in the 80's, one of those teen films like the ones John Hughes made (16 Candles, Breakfast Club, etc.) and there was this scene in it, where a bunch of people were sitting around a table, sort of drunk (or maybe on something else?) and they were goofing around, and the Oriental guy picks up a napkin, folds it into pleats pinched in the middle like a bow, and holds it up to his nose, and says:

    "You must pay the rent!"
    Then he puts it on his head, and says in a girly voice, "But I can't pay the rent!"

    This exchange happens a couple more times, and then he puts the bow on his neck and says in a "dudley Do-Right" type voice, "I'll pay the rent!" and then he puts it on his head and says in a little-girl voice again, "My hero!"

    I know I saw this scene, but I can't find the movie it was in and it's making me crazy.

    It's NOT "Better off Dead," or "Sixteen Candles." That much I know.

    Anyone? Does anyone at all know what movie ???

    HELP!!

    Could it be from "For Keeps" with Molly Ringwald?

    Honestly, I don't remember Molly Ringwald being in it, but that doesn't mean she wasn't.

    And no, I have no actors/actresses names. That's part of my problem.

    Fairly certain that the exchange is from "Geek Love". But I don't know of film or tv adaptations. Only the four person (I think) stage version.

    It's the old snidely wiplash villain exchange that many teens used to mimic. And has seeped into many books, films and stage presentations.

    The other movie it could be from is "Punchline".

    That dialog appears in "A Woman Under the Influence." Can't find any reference to what is happening in the scene though, so don't know if it's the one you are looking for.

    I'm pretty sure it's from Godzilla v. Mothra although it may have been clipped out when "edited for television."

    Arrgh!!! LOLOLOL...
    No---not Woman under the Influence, Godzilla vs. Mothra (scowl!), Punchline, About Last Night or St. Elmo. This is making me nuts!

    It's an oriental guy doing the "melodrama"--I don't know if he's Japanese, Chinese, Korean or what. I was so certain it was Better off Dead, I actually went out and BOUGHT it....funny movie, but that wasn't the right movie.

    Does anyone know if it's in Revenge of the Nerds one or two?
