Holiday Movies You Quote Throughout the Year

Ryan has a habit of snapping pictures of me on his phone when I’m looking extremely ridiculous. Yes, I have a husband who enjoys capturing pictures of me making an ass of myself. (Example: Picture a photo of my adult-size body crammed into a tiny Power Wheels car driving it around my mother-in-law’s lawn over Thanksgiving. Fueled by sangria.)

When I went to upload my photos from breakfast this morning, I noticed some new additions to our iCloud folder of pictures. Ryan’s phone automatically uploads his phone photos to our desktop and I laughed out loud when I saw the picture he snapped of me wrapping presents with the headlamp from Monday night’s blackout

Isn’t that how everyone wraps holiday gifts?

We are a rare breed of human.

Holiday Movies You Quote Throughout the Year

The holiday fun continued in the Fagan household last night!

Ryan and I parked our butts on the couch with our salmon dinner just in time to watch Home Alone.

Plus extra dark hot chocolate for dessert!

Home Alone is one of my favorite holiday movies. It also happens to be one of the holiday movies we seem to quote in our house throughout the year.

One of the best lines from Home Alone?

“Buzz! Your girlfriend! Woof!”

Buzz Your Girlfriend Woof

(Fun fact I learned from Brittany last night when I Instagramed that photo: Buzz’s girlfriend is actually a boy. The director thought it would be too mean to make fun of a girl.)

As we watched Home Alone last night, I realized there are a lot lines from holiday movies that we seem to quote year-round.

Some of our favorites:

Home Alone:

  • “Buzz! Your girlfriend! Woof!”
  • “Look what you did you little jerk!”
  • “Keep the change you filthy animal.”
  • Some variation of “get your no-good keister off my property” because I can never remember that line word-for-word.

Christmas Vacation:

  • “Can I refill your eggnong? Get you something to eat? Drive you out to the middle of nowhere and leave you for dead?”
  • “I wanna get you something… really nice.”
  • “Shitter’s full!”
  • “How could things get any worse? We’re at the threshold of hell.”
  • “It’s Christmas and we’re all in misery.”
  • “We’re gonna have the hap- hap- happiest Christmas!”
  • “Why is the carpet all wet, Todd? I don’t know Margo.”
  • “Grace? She passed away 30 years ago!” “The BLESSING.”
  • “I’m gonna catch it in the coat… and smack it with the hammer.”


  • “Bye, Buddy! Hope you find your dad.” “Thanks, Mr. Narwhal.”
  • “Buddy the Elf. What’s your favorite color?”
  • “Son of a NUTcracker!”
  • “He’s an angry elf.”
  • “I just like to smile. Smiling’s my favorite.”

    Love Actually:

    “Yes! To a fantastic place called Wisconsin”
    “I HATE Uncle Jamie!”
    “I know I seems an insane person – because I hardly knows you – but sometimes things are so transparency, they don’t need evidential proof. And I will inhabit here, or you can inhabit with me in England”

    I adore Elf for all the hilarious quotes. My 2 favorite holiday movies are The Shop Around the Corner (watch it!! It’s the inspiration for You’ve Got Mail and it’s got Jimmy Stewart) and Love Actually.

    My husband and I say “Just in cases” to each other all the time cause we’re sappy like that.

    My kids and I quote lines from Home Alone and Elf all year long. Our favorites are also “Keep the change you filthy animal” and “Get your yella no-good keister off my property….” and from Elf “Does someone need a hug?” the smiling one, and about a dozen others. They make me laugh every time!

    Haha, reading through your Christmas Vacation quotes was making me laugh. My family and I definitely quote that movie all year long. Especially “I don’t know, Margo!” We watched it last night – it’s an annual tradition – and I think it just gets funnier every time. I think pretty much the whole movie is quotable. I love when Ellen says “She’ll see it later, her eyes are frozen” about Audrey when they’re getting their tree. And “It’s not going in our yard, it’s going in our living room.” And “Merry Christmas, kiss my ass, kiss his ass, happy Hannukah.” So many good ones!!

    I seriously watch Home Alone every Christmas with my sister; we’ve been watching it ever since I can remember! Awesome to see we’re not the only ones who watch ‘old’ movies during the Holidays! =)
