  1. “A Christmas Story”

Teacher (Ms. Shields): Now I know that some of you put Flick up to this, but he has refused to say who. But those who did it know their blame, and I’m sure that the guilt you feel is far worse than any punishment you might receive. Now, don’t you feel terrible? Don’t you feel remorse for what you have done? Well, that’s all I’m going to say about poor Flick.

Narrator (Ralphie as an adult): Adults loved to say things like that but kids knew better. We knew darn well it was always better not to get caught.

 

  1. “Home Alone”

Megan McCallister: You’re not at all worried that something might happen to Kevin?

Buzz McCallister: No, for three reason: A, I’m not that lucky. Two, we use smoke detectors and D, we live on the most boring street in the whole United States of America, where nothing even remotely dangerous will happen. Period.

 

  1. “Miracle on 34th Street”

Fred Gailey: Faith is believing when common sense tells you not to. Don’t you see? It’s not just Kris that’s on trial, it’s everything he stands for. It’s kindness and joy and love and all the other intangibles.

 

  1. “The Santa Clause”

Dr. Neil Miller: Charlie, I’m sorry I didn’t believe you.

Charlie: That’s okay, Neil. You were just denying your inner child.

Dr. Neil Miller: You’re going to make a great psychiatrist someday, kid.

Charlie: Nah. I think that I’m going to go into the family business.

 

  1. “It’s a Wonderful Life”

George Bailey: Merry Christmas, movie house! Merry Christmas, Emporium! Merry Christmas, you wonderful old Building and Loan!

 

  1. “Elf”

Buddy: I thought maybe we could make ginger bread houses, and eat cookie dough, and go ice skating, and maybe even hold hands.

 

  1. “Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town”

Narrator: Poor, misguided folks. They missed the whole point. Lot’s of unhappiness? Maybe so. But doesn’t Santa take a little bit of that unhappiness away? Doesn’t a smile on Christmas morning scratch out a tear cried on a sadder day? Not much maybe. But what would happen if we all tried to be like Santa and learned to give as only he can give: of ourselves, our talents, our love and our hearts? Maybe we could all learn Santa’s beautiful lesson and maybe there would finally be peace on Earth and good will toward men.

 

  1. “Arthur Christmas”

Arthur: There is a Child without a present!

Steve: Arthur! Christmas is not a time for emotion!

 

  1. “The Polar Express”

Conductor: Seeing is believing, but sometimes the most real things in the world are the things we can’t see.

 

  1. “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”

The Grinch: That’s what it’s all about, isn’t it? That’s what it’s always been *about*. Gifts, gifts… gifts, gifts, gifts, gifts, gifts! You wanna know what happens to your gifts? They all come to me. In your garbage. You see what I’m saying? In your *garbage*. I could hang myself with all the bad Christmas neckties I found at the dump. And the avarice…

 

  1. “A Charlie Brown Christmas”

Charlie Brown: think there must be something wrong with me, Linus. Christmas is coming, but I’m not happy. I don’t feel the way I’m supposed to feel.

Charlie Brown: I just don’t understand Christmas, I guess. I like getting presents and sending Christmas cards and decorating trees and all that, but I’m still not happy. I always end up feeling depressed.

Linus Van Pelt: Charlie Brown, you’re the only person I know who can take a wonderful season like Christmas and turn it into a problem. Maybe Lucy’s right. Of all the Charlie Browns in the world, you’re the Charlie Browniest.

 

  1. “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation”

Mr. Frank Shirley: Bonus? How did you get a bonus? I cut out bonuses this year.

Clark: Yeah. Thanks for telling us. I was expecting a check. Instead I got enrolled in a jelly club. 17 years with the company. I’ve gotten a Christmas bonus every year but this one. You don’t want to give bonuses, fine. But when people count on them as their salary, well what you did just plain…

Rusty Griswold: Sucks.

Clark: Thank you, Russ. My cousin-in-law, whose heart is bigger than his brain…

Eddie: Appreciate that, Clark.

Clark: Is innocent. I’ll be more than happy to take the rap on this, on behalf of myself and every other employee you rear-ended this Christmas.
