Here are at least 4 reasons this museum scene is so unforgettable:
Showcases a whopping 40 pieces of art
Distinguishes the movie from other hedonistic teen comedies of the time
Speaks volumes about the film's characters and its director, John Hughes, even though it contains no dialogue
Represents a beautiful tribute to the power of art
