In the scene where Aunt Bethany hears a squeaking noise, the camera pans to show Uncle Lewis asleep in a chair. Seconds later, when Clark frightens the squirrel out of the tree and everyone reacts to it, you can clearly see Uncle Lewis awake and standing up as the squirrel flies by. After the room clears, showing Aunt Bethany, knitting clueless, and Uncle Lewis still fast asleep in the same chair. See more »
Since this is Aunt Bethany's 80th Christmas, I think she should lead us in the saying of Grace.
[turns to Lewis]
Grace? She passed away thirty years ago.
They want you to say Grace.
[Bethany shakes her head in confusion]
[they all pose for prayer]
I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the republic for which it stands/ One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

"THE END" is lit up in Christmas lights. One of the bulbs pops, making the lit up "THE END" go dark. See more »
This is the one Christmas movie that I don't anyone can ever get tired of. Chevy Chase returns in the third installment of the Vacation series as Clarke W. Griswold as he tries desperately to maintain his sanity during the holidays with all of his relatives coming to stay under his roof and enduring all the mishaps along the way.
This is the funniest film in the series plain and simple. Chevy Chase has never been better. Christmas Vacation is filled with countless jokes and gags that it's impossible not to laugh.
