Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.
~ One of Ferris' famous quotes.

Ferris Bueller is a high school senior and the main protagonist in the 1986 film, Ferris Bueller's Day Off. He is also the main character in its 1990 TV series sequel Ferris Bueller, where he is a high school junior. And he is also known as friendly, even-tempered, rational, righteous, instructive, selfless, bold, understanding, educated, level-headed, loving, encouraging, reasonable, funny, earnest, relaxed, respectful, inspirational, sweet, bad-tempered at times, unconventional, exuberant, low-key, lion-hearted, empathetic and recalcitrant.

He is played by Matthew Broderick in the movie and by Charlie Schlatter in the series.

In the beginning of the film, Bueller decided to skip school to fake sickness. He spends the day in downtown Chicago. He retrieved the Ferrari with his friends without getting caught by Mr. Rooney who kept looking for him and even breaking into his house. At the end of the film, he went back to bed before his parents came back to check on him.
