Any good shot of Beverly D'Angello.

The line in my signature.

Also the give & take with the hot counter girl:

Girl: "Are you buying for your wife, or girlfriend?"
(long pause)
Clark: "What? What happened?" (starts wiping his head off with a pair of panties)

"Can't see the line, can you Russ?"

the best? :confused:


It's good, but come on, mate. Better than "It's a Wonderful Life"? better than "Trading Places"? Better than "Bad Santa"??????

No. No. You're just trying to get a rise out of me. I see what you're up to there. :D

definitely better than "It's a Wonderful Life"

better than "Trading Places", but not by as much

"Bad Santa" is close, but National Lampoons takes the cake.

If I can only watch 1 Christmas movie a year, it's Lampoon for sure. Second is "A Christmas Story", 3rd is "Scrooged"

I've never seen "It's a Wonderful Life"

I love "Trading Places" to death, just really never considered it a Christmas movie. The only Christmas scene is the party scene if memory serves.

Like Die Hard 1&2 it takes place at Christmas. To me, a Christmas movie.

anyone else think that "A Christmas Story" just gets worse and worse every year? It used to be my all-time favourite christmas movie, but now it's way too publicized and the jokes have gotten somewhat old...I even saw a phone commercial using it. It's almost as if the corporate world has dubbed it a christmas classic when really...it's good, but it's not even top 10 for me anymore.

Ah Die Hard. Nothing rings in the holidays like watching Bruce Willis blow away some Eurotrash terrorists. Is it just me, or is the firt one quite possibly one of the greatest straight action movies ever made?

Some of my favorite lines have already been mentioned, such as Traxy's sig.

One of my favorite parts that my siblings and I like to repeat is when Clark and Eddie are shopping, and Eddie tells Clark he's going to get him, "Something *click noise* REALLY nice". Doesn't seem funny when you type it, you need the whole clicking thing he does with his mouth haha.

I love Clark's rant, too:
"Hey. If any of you are looking for any last-minute gift ideas for me, I have one. I'd like Frank Shirley, my boss, right here tonight. I want him brought from his happy holiday slumber over there on Melody Lane with all the other rich people and I want him brought right here, with a big ribbon on his head, and I want to look him straight in the eye and I want to tell him what a cheap, lying, no-good, rotten, four-flushing, low-life, snake-licking, dirt-eating, inbred, overstuffed, ignorant, blood-sucking, dog-kissing, brainless, dickless, hopeless, heartless, fat-ass, bug-eyed, stiff-legged, spotty-lipped, worm-headed sack of monkey **** he is. Hallelujah. Holy ****. Where's the Tylenol?"

Todd: Hey Griswold. Where do you think you're gonna put a tree that big?

Clark: Bend over and I'll show you.

Todd: You've got a lot of nerve talking to me like that Griswold.

Clark: I wasn't talking to you.

Clark: 'Tis the season to be merry.

Mary: That's my name.

Clark: No S**t.

Don't mean to video-clip this thread to death, but this one is pretty much all encompassing:
