National Lampoon's Vacation (1983) Poster

Randy Quaid: Cousin Eddie



  • Cousin Eddie : I don't know why they call this stuff hamburger helper. It does just fine by itself, huh? I like it better than tuna helper myself, don't you, Clark?

    Clark Griswald : You're the gourmet around here, Eddie.

  • Clark Griswald : Real tomato ketchup, Eddie?

    Cousin Eddie : Oh, nothing but the best.

  • Aunt Edna : Why don't you just ask him for the money, Eddie? He sure as Hell can't take a hint.

    Cousin Eddie : Well, I didn't want to ask you, Clark, you know, but could you maybe spare a little extra cash?

    Clark Griswald : Sure, Eddie, how much do you need?

    Cousin Eddie : About $52,000.

  • Cousin Eddie : I got laid off when they closed that asbestos factory, and wouldn't you know it, the army cuts my disability pension because they said that the plate in my head wasn't big enough.

  • Cousin Eddie : How do you like yours, Clark?

    Clark Griswald : Oh, medium rare, a little pink inside.

    Cousin Eddie : No, I mean your bun.

  • Cousin Eddie : Yeah, I bet you could use a cool one, eh?

    Clark Griswald : Now you're talking!

    [Eddie hands Clark his opened beer he'd been drinking and opens the last fresh one for himself] 

  • Cousin Eddie : Mmmm, mmm, mmm; I don't know why they call this stuff Hamburger Helper. It does just fine by itself, huh?

  • Clark Griswald : So, this is the old homestead, eh?

    Cousin Eddie : Yeah. I don't know for how much longer, though. The bank's been after me like flies on a rib roast.

  • Cousin Eddie : [at the cookout]  Aunt Edna! Supper's gettin' cold!

    Clark Griswald : [to Ellen]  Is that *your* Aunt Edna?

    [Ellen slinks away from the table]
