This weekend I caught one of my favorite Christmas movies on TV...Elf! It's hilarious and by far one of the most quotable movies made. I was online while watching the movie so I decided to go on twitter.com and tweet Elf quotes left and right. (For those of you who don't know what twitter.com is, never mind...you'd have to be a computer GEEK to understand....it's basically like texting 100s of people at one time.) Before I knew it, there were a TON of tweets flying at me saying they just turned their TVs on to watch. We were exchanging silly Elf quotes and laughing at our computers. How crazy are we? Bunch of cotton-headed ninny-muggins.

Melody's Favorite Elf Quotes:
(in no particular order)
Buddy: I'm the worst toy maker in the world...I'm a cotton-headed ninny-muggins.
Buddy: [to the fake Santa in the mall] You stink. You smell like beef and cheese! You don't smell like Santa. HE'S A FAKE!! HE'S A FAKE!!!
Buddy: I'm SINGING, I'm in a store and I'm SINGINGGGGGGGGGGG!!!
Buddy: Have you seen these toilets??? They're GINORMOUS!!
Buddy: You sit on a throne of lies!
Buddy: Does someone need a hug?
Buddy: And then I traveled through the seven levels of the candy cane forest past the sea of swirly-twirly gum drops and then I walked through the Lincoln Tunnel.
Santa: If you see gum on the street, leave it there. It's not free candy.
Buddy: [Buddy sees the mail room for the first time] It's just like Santa's workshop! Except it smells like mushrooms... and everyone looks like they wanna hurt me...
Buddy: [Buddy is pressing the elevator buttons at the same time] It looks like a Christmas tree.
Buddy: [explaining cabs] Watch out for the yellow ones. They don't stop!
Buddy: Morning, Sara. That's a nice purple dress, very purpley.
Buddy: I just like to smile! Smiling's my favorite.
Santa: I'm getting too old for this job.

I could go on and on...I'm sure you're thankful I'm not.

In the spirit of all things elf, go Elf Yourself.
I do this every year and it's just as funny each time. :)

Question of the Day
What's your favorite movie line?


Tara Bennett said...

'Smiling's my favorite' is my favorite elf line. I also do frequent quotes from Christopher Guest movies, Dumb and Dumber, Tommy Boy, When Harry Met Sally, Napoleon Dynamite and Nacho Libre. Sometimes my husband and I have entire conversations that are made up of just movie lines. It's a bit ridiculous. =)

The Blonde Duck said...

Stopped in to say hi! I love elf too!

Mandy said...

I love Elf. One of my favorites. :)

Ash said...

All time favorite movie line?

From "The Naked Gun"...

Drebin: "Say, nice beaver!"
Jane: (hands him a taxidermied beaver) "Why thank you... I just had it stuffed."

Probably before your time, and the rest of the movie is pretty lousy, but it's a funny thing between Dear Hubby and myself - it always makes me laugh, usually when I'm mad at him for something.

Favorite Christmas movie - "White Christmas" (boy I sound old)

"Elf" is great too!

If we're talking non-Christmas movies than one of my favorite movie quotes (I have to limit myself because I am a movie lover) is: "Marriage is a concept invented by people who were lucky to make it to 20 without being eaten by dinosaurs. Marriage is obsolete." from St. Elmo's Fire.

If we're talking Christmas movies than one of my favorite movie quotes is from National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation - Clark: Can I refill your eggnog for you? Get you something to eat? Drive you out to the middle of nowhere and leave you for dead?
Eddie: Naw, I'm doing just fine, Clark.

Jess said...

From Anchorman: "You shut your whore mouth!" I say it all the time :)

That was so much fun Tweetin' with ya during Elf. I LOVE that movie!!!! Oh man, I have wayyyy too many quotes to name but they all seem to stem from Wil Ferrell!!

Oh and I am SO excited that I won!!!

Mari said...

I can't get you elf yourself video to play! We love the Elf movie too! Sorry, but I can't think of a movie line.

Melissa Martin said...

I have the Elf movie too. We even watch it in the summertime sometimes.

Michelle said...

Hi Melody,
Can I just tell you how much I love the movie Elf. Did you know that It's a Wonderful Life (which is my alltime fave) is only played once a year now?
Have you ever heard of Cashbaq? I just signed up.

Carole said...

"I'm gonna come at you like a spider monkey Chip" LOL Gets me laughing every time. We watched Elf the other night too!! Such a great movie! Have a wonderful day!

angie said...

A lot of Will Ferrell movies on tv lately - Elf, Anchorman, and Talledega Nights. I love Elf, and I think the line "smilings my favorite" is so funny.

Michelle said...

Did I mention the title of this post is hilarious!

tiarastantrums said...

ha ha - my kids love that movie!!

cindysherritt said...

Elf Yourself - love that!! Played around with it last year and did all my family and sent it to them!

Michelle said...

I love Elf......not sure if I have a favorite line from a movie. Even though I'm sure there is one that I say and just can't think of it at the moment.

Rachel Ann said...

Thanks for a great giveaway!

'Smiling's my favorite'.

momma said...

yeah!!! i'm so excited that i won something!!!!

i don't really have a favorite movie quote, because i don't remember enough of a movie to remember a movie quote. that's daddy's job in our family.

i do love elf and a christmas story, though :)

Unknown said...

So funny! We love that movie!

Jen - Balancing Beauty and Bedlam said...

oh yes - we need to rent that movie this week. Thanks for the reminder. :)

Us said...

I, too, LOVE Elf!! When I worked at Build a Bear, we would answer the phone like Buddy - state our name and position and then "What's your favorite color?"
DIrty Dancing- Patrick Swayze says, "Nobody puts Baby in the corner." Then it's followed by a wonderfully cheesy dance number.

One of my favorites is actually form the ELF movie, it's...
BUUURRRRPPPPP... DId you hear that?

LOL Gets me on the floor laughing everytime.

Jennie said...

I LOVE ELF!!! we have it on our DVR and have worn it out.... I love all of the lines.... sorry I have MIA lately, life is going far too fast for my liking.... here is a little bit of trivia for you... in the beginning of ELF, there is a toy inspector elf with a beard, who has to take Buddy off of making Etch-a-sketches, and that elf is played by the boy who was Ralphie in the best Christmas movie ever (besides ELF) "A Christmas Story"... just thought that might make you smile....

Ok...I have to tell this story now. I LOVE ELF. And so does my mom. We laugh the entire time. And then we quote every line.

So at the east coast gas station close to her house is a vertically challenged person. Who is VERY grumpy. And every single time we see him, we always say "He must be a south pole elf" and it always makes me laugh. without fail!

Home for the Holidays is my fave, course it is a thanksgiving one, but hey, it is good.

My friend emailed me this deal today.


gmistudio said...

Lisa said...

I must be one of the few peeps that hasn't seen Elf! Need to rent that. I do love Talladega Nights and the part where he is saying the blessing and he prays, "Dear Baby Jesus" and I can't quote the rest in its exactness but its' flippin' hilarious!

Are You Serious! said...
