  • QUOTES (15)

    • Huey: So you want me to direct the school play?
      Mr. Ouberwitz: Yes.
      Huey: First of all, I don't give a damn about Christmas.

    • Riley: (about to shoot pellets at a mall Santa) Merry Christmas, nigga!

    • Huey: They gon' fire you for being an irresponsible white person.

    • Mr. Ouberwitz: I would really love to see your vision.
      Huey: Vision? What do you know about my vision?! My vision would turn your world upside-down, tear asunder your illusions, and a sanctuary of your own ignorance crashing down around you. Ask yourself... are you really ready to see that vision?
      Mr. Ouberwitz: We'll give you complete creative control.
      Huey: ... I want it in writing.

    • Uncle Rukus: No Santa Claus? Well, I'd expect a heathen nigglet like Riley to say something like that – but Jazmine, I'm surprised at you! Bein' a mulatto and all, you supposed to have more sense!

    • Mall Santa: Why hello there! And what would you like Santa to bring you for Christmas?
      Little White Girl: I want a… uh… Santa, you got a red dot on your head.

    • Huey: You know what? All of y'all are fired! Get out.
      Kid: What? Aww c'mon
      Huey: Did I stutter?!
      (kids groan and then look to Quincy Jones for help)
      Quincy Jones: Don't look at me...
      Huey: Don't look at Quincy Jones, Quincy Jones ain't gonna help you! Get your asses out. NOW!

    • News Reporter: That's right, Bob. A little bit of Christmas spirit is returning to Woodcrest for the first time since Santa was assulted by the unknown, probably Arab, Santa Stalker one week ago.

    • "Santa Claus": What the fuck?! Y'all just gonna stand there and let me get my ass kicked?! Nobody had my back?! Huh? Nobody's got Santa's back? Ain't this a bitch? This is a fucked up ritual!
      Random Kid: Santa said the "F" word!

    • Riley: Man, Santa these nuts. Where was Santa when we was in the hood, huh? Santa didn't show a nigga no love back then. I didn't ask for much just rims not even a whole car and what do we get? Nothing! That nigga gonna pay what he owe.

    • Uncle Ruckus: I am the real Santa! Ho ho ho, look at my belly shake!

    • Huey: Have y'all lost your damn minds? Opening night is two weeks away and y'all want to party!
      Kid: We're just having fun.
      Huey: Having fun? Do I look like Charlie Brown? Do I!?
      Kids: (whispering) No…
      Huey: Do I look like Charlie Brown to you!?

    • Huey: (narrating) We all want to believe in miracles on Christmas - all of us. But Christmas miracles only happen in the lies adults tell children, and maybe in Christmas specials.

    • Jazmine: He knows when you been sleeping, he knows when you're awake. He knows if you've been bad or good so be good for what?
      Audience: Goodness Sake!
      Jazmine: Think about that, be good for goodness sake. Who's sake? It's time to take the ho's out the music videos and put 'em in your mouth. Somebody say ho ho ho!
      Audience: Ho! Ho! Ho!
      Jazmine: Nowadays people think think ho ho ho means the Hilton sisters standing next to Nicole Richie. Now that ain't no ho ho ho, somebody give me the real ho ho ho!
      Audience: Ho! Ho! Ho!
      Jazmine: FedEx, UPS, they can ship the package but wait a minute, I know a man with a different kind of guarantee over night delivery, he got his own over night express. Forget airborne express, I'll take the reindeer express, cuz its free shipping on Christmas Eve. Somebody say ho ho ho.
      Audience: Ho! Ho! Ho!
      Jazmine: Praise Santa!
      (people start dancing, doing cart wheels, and singing)

    • Huey: So you want me to direct the school Christmas play?
      Teacher: I think you will do a wonderful job.
      Huey: Well, first of all, I don't give a damn about Christmas.
