Home for the Holidays (1995)
Claudia: Nobody means what they say on Thanksgiving, Mom. You know that. That's what the day's supposed to be all about, right? Torture.
Joanne: You're calling me a freak?
Tommy: No, I'm calling you a product of baboon lovin'. There's a distinction.
Tommy: Enough! You're a pain in my ass. You have bad hair. But I like you a lot.
Adele: Well, You know me. I can't change.
Tommy: Believe me, neither can I. Ma.
Adele: Even as a little boy, you didn't want us too close.
Adele: I'm giving thanks that we don't have to go through this for another year. Except we do, because those bastards went and put Christmas right in the middle, just to punish us.
Claudia: You don't know the first thing about me.
Joanne: Likewise, I'm sure. If I just met you on the street... if you gave me your phone number... I'd throw it away.
Claudia: Well, we don't have to like each other, Jo. We're family.
Adele: Come on. Where is everybody? People are starving in the former Yugoslavia.
Claudia 'Clyde' Larson: Didn't you have a girlfriend, or...
Russell 'Sad Sack' Terziak: Yeah, she went and married my best buddy Ray.
Russell 'Sad Sack' Terziak: Well, duty calls. Merry Christmas, if I don't ever see you again. You have a nice life, Claudia. (leaves. Claudia walks past Tommy and Leo, nearly in tears)
Tommy: She'll bounce back. Trust me on this.
Leo: [to Claudia, when he gets into the car with some difficulty, as he is trying to stuff a lamp in as well] It's mine; you can't have it. She gave it to me.
Henry Larson: Well, opinions are like assholes, honey. Everybody's got one and everybody thinks everybody else's stinks.
Claudia 'Clyde' Larson: Joanne,huh? What a dick.
Tommy: I'm impervious. It's in one ear, out the other. Life goes on.
Tommy: She'll bounce back. Trust me on this. No, she feels her feelings. But she'll bounce back. Feelings come up and she actually feels them, which is great.
Joanne: I have friends in Boston, Tommy. Did you ever think about that? There are other people in this world. People who tell people. I mean, how embarrassing.
Tommy: Desert looks pretty good.
Joanne: I have friends in Boston, Tommy. Did you ever think of that? There are other people in this world. People who tell people. I mean, how embarrassing.
Tommy: Desert looks pretty good.
Leo: Walter, when you say "cash is king," what's that mean?
Walter: Cash is the fossil fuel that keeps our economic pistons pumping.
Claudia: When you go home, do you look around and wonder, 'who are these people, where did I even come from?' I mean, you look at them all, sitting there, you know - they look familiar, but who the hell are they?
Russell 'Sad Sack' Terziak: I'm just lettin' the guys have the day off, you know, so they can visit their families, since I'm all alone this year.
Tommy: (to Leo) This is the saddest sack in the universe.
Russell 'Sad Sack' Terziak: Yeah, I don't have anybody anymore, my brother and sister got canned and they left town, and then my parents went and died on me.
Claudia 'Clyde' Larson: I'm so sorry. I had no idea.
Russell 'Sad Sack' Terziak: Yeah, well, you know - it was a car wreck, last summer, drunk driver, cut right across the, uh what was it, you know - meridian, pow - pow! Head on.
Claudia 'Clyde' Larson: You know, maybe next year will be better for you.
Russell 'Sad Sack' Terziak: Hey, yeah - or worse.
Adele: [Answers the phone] Hello... who?... I never heard of him, consult your directory.
Henry Larson: [answering phone] Herro, Rarson Lesidence.
