All I Want for Christmas (1991)
Ethan O'Fallon: Now look, Hallie, you can ask for toys, parakeets, hair care products, I don't care. But you may not ask for anything to do with interpersonal relationships! Got it? This is Santa Claus, not Dear Abby.
Ethan O'Fallon: So, where'd you put your mittens?
Hallie O'Fallon: Do you really want to know?
Ethan O'Fallon: Yeah, I really want to know.
Hallie O'Fallon: I sold them.
Ethan O'Fallon: Fine... hope you got a good deal.
Kevin Mars: So not only are you a spaz, you're an elf?
Ethan O'Fallon: Yeah, that's right, I'm an elf. I'm the elf king!
Kevin Mars: Don't worry... we won't tell.
Ethan O'Fallon: Yeah, that's right! I'm an elf... I'm the elf KING!
Paramedic #1: Are you Lillian Brooks?
Lillian Brooks: Yes, I'm THE Lillian Brooks!
Paramedic #1: Yeah, and I'm Luis Hernandez.
Hallie O'Fallon: Excuse me! Can I cut in? I won't take long... I just have to fix this mistake I made.
Girl in Line: Have cuts for a dollar!
Hallie O'Fallon: Forget it. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah! Don't forget to tell Santa what a creep you are!
[standing outside in the cold]
Ethan O'Fallon: If this works, I'm a hero. If not... well, maybe Santa can bring me some nice warm PJs for juvenile hall.
Santa: Oh, you're back.
Hallie O'Fallon: I'm back.
Santa: You wouldn't want something easy, would you? Like a nice doll? I have dolls you wouldn't believe.
Hallie O'Fallon: Can I use the lap?
Hallie O'Fallon: Okay. Now we've really got to talk.
Hallie O'Fallon: [singing] Have yourself a merry little Christmas. Have yourself a merry little Christmas. Have yourself a merry little Christmas. Have yourself a merry little Christmas. Have yourself a merry little Christmas.
Tony Boer: That's very pretty, Hallie. Do you want to know the rest?
Hallie O'Fallon: [shakes her head] Have yourself a merry little Christmas. Have yourself a merry little Christmas.
Lillian Brooks: Never use the word "lovely" darling. It's the mark of the jerk.
Tony Boer: I bet you want to be a ballerina when you grow up.
Hallie O'Fallon: I never said that.
Tony Boer: I thought all little girls wanted to be ballerinas.
Hallie O'Fallon: What if I'm too fat? What if my head's too big? It's too much pressure.
Tony Boer: It's never too early to know what you want.
Hallie O'Fallon: I know what I want.
Catherine O'Fallon: Honey, I think Tony's just trying to make conversation.
Hallie O'Fallon: Wait until I'm in the third grade, then I'll pick a career.
Marshall: [to Ethan] After we get your parents back together, help me split up mine!
Michael O'Fallon: How's my favorite ex-mother-in-law and second lady of the American theatre?
Lillian Brooks: Fine. And quite happy to see you. Though I can't say the same for your ex-wife, though you haven't even asked about her yet.
[Ethan sits on a chair which breaks to pieces underneath him]
Tony Boer: Oh. That chair is broken.
Ethan O'Fallon: That's really helpful, Tony. Thank you.
Catherine O'Fallon: [on the phone] Marshall, it's Mrs. O'Fallon. I need to speak to Ethan right away.
Marshall: Ethan? Your son? That specific Ethan?
Sylvia: I thought it might be enchanting to have the bridesmaids in little jodhpurs and carrying riding crops festumed with baby's breath.
Lillian Brooks: That could be enchanting. In a stable.
Hallie O'Fallon: [to Ethan] Will you read me Old Yeller? I can read it myself, but I like the way you do the voices. You make everyone sound so weird.
Lillian Brooks: [about Tony] I don't believe he knows 500 people.
Lillian Brooks: We've got rats. You wouldn't know anything about vermin, would you Tony?
Hallie O'Fallon: Did I mention Ethan's at Marshall's?
Michael O'Fallon: Yeah, like 6 times. Plus it's been on the news, so word's out.
Lillian Brooks: [on the phone] I've just returned from a very expensive night at the Charlisle to find a $1200 bill form your branch of Rodent Murder Incorporated and no rats.
Man on phone: Do you want the bodies?
Lillian Brooks: No, I don't want the actual rat bodies. I want proof that you found something in this house other than a grade A sucker.
Lillian Brooks: [as Tony leaves] Now we *know* all the rats are gone.
Hallie O'Fallon: I want you to meet my friend Snowball.
Tony Boer: Oh, and I bet you're the only one who can see Snowball.
Hallie O'Fallon: Oh, no. You can see him, too.
[pulls out Snowball the mouse]
Hallie O'Fallon: Look!
Tony Boer: Hallie! Get that thing away!
Hallie O'Fallon: You hurt his feelings. Now he thinks you hate him.
Tony Boer: I don't hate him. I like him.
Hallie O'Fallon: You have to tell him.
Tony Boer: Snowball, I like you. I like you very much. Now put that thing away.
Hallie O'Fallon: You have to say it louder. He had tiny, tiny ears.
Tony Boer: [yelling] I like you, Snowball!
Hallie O'Fallon: He doesn't believe you.
Tony Boer: [yelling] Snowball, I love you! I love you very, very much!
[running up and dragging Halley away from Santa]
Ethan O'Fallon: Merry Christmas. Ho, ho, ho.
Catherine O'Fallon: Tony? Tony where are you?
Tony Boer: I'm in New Jersey!
[cop walks by carrying Tony's suit which is frozen in the shape of his body]
Ethan O'Fallon: How's it looking?
Hallie O'Fallon: Well they're asleep... on the same couch! Looking good!
Ethan O'Fallon: Good? That's great!
Hallie O'Fallon: [explaining the reason for seeing Santa] I had to see him this is special, not all mom's and dad's get back together but ours should.
Santa: [to Hallie] You know, I usually specialize in stuff you can wrap.
Hallie O'Fallon: I'm gonna ask Santa to get them back
Hallie O'Fallon: together again so we can have US back together again.
Ethan O'Fallon: Now look Hallie, you can't ask Santa Claus for that
Hallie O'Fallon: Why not?
Ethan O'Fallon: Well because... coz... he's jolly... he's a jolly fat guy and not a marriage counseller.
Catherine O'Fallon: [beginning to suspect something] There are all these pieces, and they don't fit together, but they do fit together.
Ethan O'Fallon: So what's the problem? Did someone make a tuna fish sandwich out of the little mermaid?
