There's an article about Lloyd Dobler in last week's Washington Post. My favorite quote:
Lloyd Dobler ruined men forever. I can't take total credit for this, an ex-boyfriend said this to me once. He contended that Lloyd Dobler's boombox moment became the pinnacle of romance—the standard that no man could ever meet no matter how hard he tried. I've always loved Lloyd Dobler and have grown to appreciate him more as the years have gone on...the guy in high school that no woman wanted but ultimately now the kind of man we want to marry.
On the other hand, another woman quoted in the same article says: "And let's face it, if a guy stood outside with a boombox playing music outside my window, I'd be unimpressed and slightly freaked out."
