Del: “You wanna hurt me? Go right ahead if it makes you feel any better. I’m an easy target. Yeah, you’re right, I talk too much. I also listen too much. I could be a cold-hearted cynic like you, but I don’t like to hurt people’s feelings. Well, you think what you want about me, I’m not changing. I like...I like me. My wife likes me. My customers like me. ‘Cause I’m the real article. What you see is what you get.”
True, this John Hughes classic is technically about Thanksgiving. But if you don’t think Christmas dictates the same desperate need to make it home in time for dinner, you’ve got another thing coming.
Kate: “This is Christmas. The season of perpetual hope. And I don’t care if I have to get out on your runway and hitchhike. If it costs me everything I own, if I have to sell my soul to the devil himself, I am going to get home to my son.”
See? Christmas: the season of doing whatever it takes to be with the people you love.
Kevin: “This is extremely important. Will you please tell Santa that instead of presents this year, I just want my family back? No toys. Nothing but Peter, Kate, Buzz, Megan, Linnie, and Jeff. And my aunt and my cousins. And if he has time, my Uncle Frank. Okay?”
And when you think about how sociopathic Kevin’s Uncle Frank was, Kevin’s request is even more heartwarming and tear-inducing.
