Favorite Christmas Movie lines


Here are some of my favorite lines from famous Christmas movies. See if you can name what movie they're from without using Google (or any other search engine)-

1. "What else can I be when I live in a world full of fools babbling "Merry Christmas" at one another? What's Christmas but a time for finding yourself a year older and not a day richer? There's nothing merry in that. If I could work my will, nephew, every idiot who goes about with "Merry Christmas" on his lips should be boiled with his own pudding and buried with a stake of holly through his heart."

2. "Oh no! It was a classic, mother BB-gun block. "You'll shoot your eye out!" That deadly phrase honored many times by hundreds of mothers was not surmountable by any means known to Kid-dom, but such as my mania, my desire for a Red Ryder carbine, that I immediately began to rebuild the dike."

3. "Rats. Nobody sent me a Christmas card today. I almost wish there weren't a holiday season. I know nobody likes me. Why do we have to have a holiday season to emphasize it?"

4. "He puzzled and puzzled till his puzzler was sore. Then he thought of something he hadn't before. Maybe Christmas, he thought... doesn't come from a store. Maybe Christmas, perhaps... means a little bit more!"

And for no extra charge:

5. "I took a shower washing every body part with actual soap; including all my major crevices; including inbetween my toes and in my belly button, which I never did before but sort of enjoyed. I washed my hair with adult formula shampoo and used cream rinse for that just-washed shine. I can't seem to find my toothbrush, so I'll pick one up when I go out today. Other than that, I'm in good shape."

With all due respect, pastor, if these are the memorable lines from the "Christmas" movies you've been watching, maybe you've been spending too much time alone in your mancave. Just a suggestion. Merry Christmas to you and to yours.

No apologies. Great movies!

By the way, I'm sure I didn't see any of those movies. Nothing is even faintly familiar to me, except #4, because it sounds like something from Dr. Suess. So, that's probably the "Grinch" movie. But, I didn't see it.

Sorry Ray! bummer. You got the name wrong on #3&4. Try again.

Ray and Janell said...

Oh my … are you going to check for spelling errors, too?

3. How the Grinch Stole Christmas

Cheri and I have a host of Christmas must's every year. We have to start with her favorite, "Miracle on 34th Street". My absolute all time favorite for pure stupid humor is "Christmas Vacation." Every time we watch, I discover another hidden hilarious jewel. My favorite Christmas story is “It’s a Wonderful Life.” But of course we have a host of Hallmark Christmas classics in our collection, more chick flicks for Woody.
