  • Quotes

    • Alex: Let's face it - around Christmas, a lot of us are feeling pretty lousy.
      Johnny: And on that happy note...

    • Alex: It's not so much Christmas that bothers me, but what it represents. You know, the stress and turmoil, the anxiety and the shopping frenzy. I mean, God forbid, we shoot for a little "Peace on Earth, goodwill to men."
      Johnny: You're right. We'd all be a lot better off if we just forgot about all he commercialization and looked for a little more inner peace.
      Alex: Yeah.
      Johnny: Damn, I gotta go.
      Alex: Go where?
      Johnny: To the toy store. If I don't get that new hot video game, my son is going to be devastated.
      Alex: What happened to forgetting commercialization and searching for inner peace?
      Johnny: Are you crazy – we're talking about Christmas in America.
      Bruce: Next thing you'll be telling me there's no such thing as Santa Claus
      Alex: You mean the fictional character created by New York City merchants at the turn of the century to encourage people to buy material goods?
      Bruce: (depressed) I can't hear this.

    • Bruce: What the hell is that?
      Johnny: Ah, I knew you were wondering. That, my man, is a turducken.
      Bruce: A turducken. Is that one of those chicken inside a duck inside a turkey things?
      Johnny: That's the one.
      Bruce: It's kinda freaky-looking, man. It's kind like, oh, Colonel Sanders meets Frankenstein type things.

    • Johnny: (to Sara) Why didn't I marry you? Oh right – I was in a coma.

    • Alex: Why do you think Santa would be carrying a .38 revolver?
      Johnny: I don't know. Maybe he's from a bad part of the North Pole.
