(answers are now posted in the comment section)

Something completely different today. Can you identify who said each quote, and in what classic Christmas song, story, or show?

  1. “Happy Birthday!”
  2. “It’s not bad at all, really. Maybe it just needs a little love.”
  3. “And they’re hanging their stockings… Tomorrow is Christmas! It’s practically here!”
  4. “You may tear apart the baby’s rattle and see what makes the noise inside, but there is a veil covering the unseen world which not the strongest man, nor even the united strength of all the strongest men that ever lived, could tear apart.”
  5. You know, fruit cake has the same properties as wood, including taste. You can keep a stove going for hours.”
  6. “Oh-oh. Somebody’s just made it. Every time you hear a bell ring, it means that some angel’s just got his wings.”
  7. “I’m cute! I’m cute! She said I’m cute!”
  8. “I don’t like green Christmases. They’re not green—they’re just nasty faded browns and greys.”
  9. “Beaming faces everywhere, happiness is in the air, I’m telling you, it isn’t fair! I hate Christmas!”
  10. “Merry Christmas, movie house! Merry Christmas, Emporium! Merry Christmas, you wonderful old Building and Loan!”
  11. “Well, sir, someday, I’d like to be a… a dentist.”
  12. “If you so much as lay a finger on the brim, I will never bring you another Christmas present as long as you live.”
  13. “Well, I hate to disagree with you, but not only IS there such a person, here I am to prove it.”
  14. “Will you buy my hair?”
  15. “Ask me who I was.”
  16. “Santie Claus, why? Why are you taking our Christmas tree? Why?”
  17. “Scotch pine delicious! But Douglas fir give me heartburn! (Burps) Excuse me!”
  18. “Where do you think you’re going? Nobody’s leaving. Nobody’s walking out on this fun, old-fashioned family Christmas. No, no. We’re all in this together. This is a full-blown, four-alarm holiday emergency here.”
  19. “All I want is what I have coming to me. All I want is my fair share.”
  20. “Christmas, Christmas time is near, Time for toys and time for cheer, We’ve been good, but we can’t last, Hurry Christmas, hurry fast.”
  21. “Ah. Yes. Blimey. Sorry! Christmas Eve on a rooftop. Saw a chimney, my whole brain just went “What the hell!””
  22. “The fire looks very seasonable in this weather. You look cold, Mr. Ryder… I will just put on my slippers before we settle this little matter of yours… You want to know what became of those geese?”
  23. “Look, Teddy. What’s Santa brought you?”
  24. “Folks, if you happen to get a goldfish for Christmas and the goldfish dies, you can flush it. But if you get a poinsettia and the poinsettia dies, don’t flush it, all right? Bad mistake.”
  25. “To the top of the porch! To the top of the wall! Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!”

Bonus quote:

  • “Christmas is a time for sharing. Christmas is a time for caring. If you believe in Christmas things, you’ll know the joy that Christmas brings.”
