Duckie in Pretty in Pink (Played by Jon Cryer)

Phil “Ducky” Dale has impeccable ’80s fashion sense and he’s always there for Andie (Molly Ringwald), who of course pines for the blond, bland Blane (Andrew McCarthy). But Ducky is her true love — at least to Ducky.

Of course, there’s something creepy and cowardly, in retrospect, about Ducky posing as a platonic friend to Andie while secretly hoping to hook up with her.

But it’s not that rare a dynamic in ’80s movies.
