Definitely worthy of its own thread, and maybe my favorite Hughes film. Way more than Sixteen Candles. Really looking forward to this.

It's probably the two extra scenes from the TV cut:

Extra footage was added to the syndicated television version:
  • A bunch of guys wearing Devo helmets try to get into Gary and Wyatt's party.
  • Extra scene at the very beginning where Gary and Wyatt are in the kitchen cooking.

Impressive features on this. May have to pick it up. The deleted scenes are likely these - clocking at nearly 3 mins. Oddly, I remember seeing these - must have been during a TV airing years back.
