"You'll Shoot Your Eye Out" and other classic holiday lines

by Leslie

When it comes to holiday movies, there are really very few that can beat what I deem:  The "It's the Holiday Season, so whoop de doo and dickory dock" movie trifecta.  I might have to find a way to abbreviate that title, but right now, there's really no time.  There's no time, because right now we are going to hearken back to our childhoods and recount some of the best movie lines ever to have been spoken near December 25th.

Movie One:


A Christmas Story.  Check out some of these classic lines:

"It's a major award!!"

"Don't want to waste electricity."

"Fra-gee-lay.  That must me Italian!"

"Mommy's little piggy."

"A crummy commercial?  Son of a bitch!"

"I want an Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action Two-Hundred-Shot Range Model Air Rifle! "




Movie numero dos:




Home Alone.  See if you remember these lovely tidbits:


"When I grow up, I'm living alone!"


"Kevin, you're what the French call les incompetents."


"Fuller, go easy on the Pepsi!"


"We slept in!"


"Kevin, you're such a disease"


"Buzz, your girlfriend.  Woof."






Movie Three:




National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation.  A classic by any standard:


"Burn dust.  Eat my rubber."


"We're going to have a fun, old fashioned family Christmas."


"Save the neck for me, Clark."


"And why is the carpet all wet, Todd?"  "I don't know, Margot!"


"Later, dudes!!"


"I wanna get you somethin' real nice, Clark."




Don't you just want to sit down with the fam and watch these now?  I know I do.  Only a few more weeks until we're all together.  So what are your favorite family holiday movies?  What are you favorite lines?  Share them here.  We love movie trivia, no matter the season.

  1. Just re-watched Elf yesterday and today and, boy, it's got some great lines. "I'm in love, I'm in love, and I don't care who knows it!"

  2. I wish there was some way to express the facial expressions he has in that movie, too. Like when he finds the gum under the railing. Love it. "Baby, it's cold out-side!"
