    I liked them all...but in "Christmas Vacation" when Clark asks Eddie if he can "...take you out in the middle of nowhere, leave you for dead?". I laugh everytime.

    Definitely Christmas Vacation. Favorite quote? (I think I've posted this before, somewhere...)

    "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. We're gonna press on, and we're gonna have the hap, hap, happiest Christmas since Bing Crosby tap-danced with Danny f:eek:ing Kaye. And when Santa squeezes his fat white :eek: down that chimney tonight, he's gonna find the jolliest bunch of :eek:holes this side of the nuthouse. "

    Although, it's far better with the expletives left in...

    hallelujah, holy sh:eek:t! where's the tylenol?!
  6. The salesman at the dealership; "if you think you hate (the Family Truckster) it now, just wait until you drive it.":D And of course Christie Brinkley looked awesome throughout the first movie. :eusa_clap
  7. I love Aunt Bethany from Christmas Vacation.
    "Is your house on fire, Clark?"
    "It's not everyday somebody moves into a new house!"
    "Did I break wind?"

    And of course, Uncle Louis and his interactions with her.
    "You couldn't hear a dump truck driving through a nitroglycerine plant!"

    I usually watch that movie every year at Christmas.
  8. Vacation...the orig.

    Another vote for Christmas Vacation. It's one of the few movies that consistently makes me laugh out loud.

    The great Christmas light extravaganza is my favorite part, along with the arrival of the brother-in-law in the motorhome.
  11. My favorite for years has been the original! My sister and I could spout out everyline of it to each other.lol But I do love Christmas vacation too! Couldn't get any hooter hotter .... and If any wants any last minute gift ideas.....lol lol

  13. From Vegas Vacation;

    I love Christmas vacation. There are so many classic scenes - the cat eating the Christmas lights, the squirrel, the wig on fire...but I completely lose it when they blow up Santa Clause at the end. lol

    I also like the Vegas Vacation one.

    hey griswold where ya' gonna put tree that size?

    bend over and ill show ya'...
  17. The original one is my favorite comedy of all time. Especially where he is eating the sandwich watching Christi Brinkley and they say the dog peed on it.
    The guy is a clone no kidding of my brother in law.

    "you've got a lot of nerve talking to me that way griswold!"

    The first one, when Clarke goes to pay for the repairs after the tow from the desert.
    The skinny mechanic: "I never seen anyone so sh!t-all stupid to drive their car of the road, you must got manure for yer brains"

    And the prayer before leaving aunt Edna at cousin Normy's; "Dear Lord......give us a break down here.......and the Hindus speak of karma.....Baruch-a-tahallelujah."
  20. I love them all. I do have a soft spot for European Vacation, because I saw it in the movies as a kid, but the first one is definitely my favorite.
    Guard- Has your father ever killed anyone?
    Rusty- Just a dog. Oh- and my Aunt Edna.
    Clark- Hey! you can't prove that Russ.
