‘Pretty in Pink’ Plot Summary

In Pretty in Pink, unpopular high-school senior Duckie has a huge crush on his best friend and equally unpopular classmate, Andie. Of course, she only sees them as friends, which frustrates Duckie to no end. However, one day when a rich boy, who also happens to be Andie’s long-time crush, Blane, takes an interest in her, life gets complicated. Blane has a bunch of equally rich (and terribly snobby) buddies that think Andie is beneath Blane. Additionally, Duckie is super jealous of his new rival even though Blane seems genuinely interested in Andie. Who will get the girl in this ’80s love triangle?

  1. How old is Matt? It is funny his disdain for 80s pop music. I was born in 76 so consider myself an 80s girl and lived for 80s pop music. I love that back than there really wasn’t a big divide with black and white artists. I felt 80s music was so racially blended back then, in the 90s the divide started-IMO

    1. I don’t know his exact age, but he was born in the 80s around 10 years before you. He’s the youngest of our group, and may like 90s music more, but I don’t want to speak for him on that.

    2. Hi Lei,

      I was born in 1982. I think it’s more a product of my disdain for pop music generally. I still listen to some heavy metal and other stuff from the 80’s. Never much of a pop music guy though.

      Thanks for listening and commenting!

      1. Totally understandable. And having not everyone agree on the music, actors/actresses, etc. is what makes for an entertaining podcast. Keep up the good work guys.
