God Bless Us, Every one

December 24, 2010 - Michael Palmer
Christmas has been a popular subject for Hollywood and it is a tradition to take in the classics during the holiday season.

We will watch them at my mother-in-laws while the kids are playing with their gifts and then Christmas Day we will turn them on and enjoy the classics.

We all know and can recite from these films, cartoons and animated holiday favorites.

Here are some of the most memorable quotes:

A Charlie Brown Christmas

Schroeder: This is the music I've selected for the Christmas play. [Schroeder plays Fur Elise] Lucy Van Pelt: What kind of Christmas music is *that*? Schroeder: Beethoven Christmas music. Lucy Van Pelt: What has Beethoven got to do with Christmas? Everyone talks about how "great" Beethoven was. Beethoven wasn't so great. [Schroeder stops playing] Schroeder: What do you mean Beethoven wasn't so great? Lucy Van Pelt: He never got his picture on bubble gum cards, did he? Have you ever seen his picture on a bubble gum card? Hmmm? How can you say someone is great who's never had his picture on bubble gum cards? Schroeder: Good grief.

Charlie Brown: 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?

A Christmas Story

(Ralphie is seeing Santa, only he can't remember what he wanted) Santa Claus: How about a nice football? Ralphie: Football? Football? What's a football? With unconscious will my voice squeaked out 'football'. Santa Claus: Okay, get him out of here. Ralphie: A football? Oh no, what was I doing? Wake up, Stupid! Wake up! Ralphie: [Is shoved down the slide, but he stops himself and climbs back up] No! No! I want an Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action Two-Hundred-Shot Range Model Air Rifle! Santa Claus: You'll shoot your eye out, kid.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas

“And he puzzled and puzzled ‘till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before. What if Christmas, he though, doesn’t come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.” ~ Narrator,

Miracle on 34th Street

Doris: Would you please tell her that you're not really Santa Claus, that there actually is no such person? Kris Kringle: Well, I hate to disagree with you, but not only is there such a person, but here I am to prove it.

“Faith is believing in things when common sense tells you not to.” ~ Fred Gailey (John Payne,)

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer

Mrs. Claus: Papa, you haven't touched a morsel. I'll have to take this suit in. Eat! Santa Claus: I'm busy, Mama. It's almost Christmas. Mrs. Claus: Whoever heard of a skinny Santa? Eat Papa. Eat!

It's A Wonderful Life Look, Daddy. Teacher says every time a bell rings, an angel gets his wings.

National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation

Mr. Shirley: "Look, uh, sometimes things look good on paper, but lose their luster when you see how it affects real folks. I guess a healthy bottom line doesn't mean much, if to get it you have to hurt the ones you depend on. It's people that make the difference, little people like you. So, Carl, whatever you got last year, add 20 percent."

And finally…….

A Christmas Carol

“And it was always said of Scrooge, that he knew how to keep Christmas well, if any man alive possessed the knowledge. May that be truly said of us, and all of us! And so, as Tiny Tim observed, God bless us, every one!”
