  • Quotes

    • Minkus: Ah, Christmas. Season of togetherness. Season of brotherhood.
      Cory: Season of wool. Nine out of ten Christmas gifts, wool. It doesn't matter if it's shaped like socks or a sweater. It's wool, and it's itchy.
      Minkus: The gift isn't as important as the thought behind it.
      Cory: What's the thought behind wool? This kid doesn't scratch enough?

    • Shawn: How come it's called A Christmas Carol, anyway.
      Cory: Yeah, there is nobody in this story named Carol.

    • Mr. Feeny: And so ends Dickens' masterpiece; A Christmas Carol.
      Shawn: Wait a minute; that's not the end. Where's the Grinch?

    • Mr. Feeny: You know what my favorite part about Christmas is?
      Cory: I go away for a week?
      Mr. Feeny: Yeah, that's pretty special.

    • Shawn (about a basketball net he gave Cory): It belonged to my dad. It's real old so it might not be genuine imitation nylon.
      Cory: Whoa, if it's that old it could be actual nylon.

    • Mr. Feeny (as Santa Claus): Well now, little Morgan, tell Santa what you want for Christmas.
      Cory: Good grades for your big brother!
      Mr. Feeny: Ho, ho, ho.

    • Alan: You know, Cor, when I was a kid Christmas was about appreciating your gifts because they were given with love.
      Cory: Oh, right. Glad that's over.

    • Morgan (about the elf): I think he was mad at me.
      Alan: He wasn't mad at you.
      Morgan: Then why did he call me a demon child?

    • Eric: What's with the weasel? She locked herself in the bathroom and she's singing, "On the First Day of Christmas, I Murdered Santa Claus!"
