National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
Confession to make... I wasn't yet alive in '89. But Chevy Chase is sure at the top of his game in this homage to the love/hate event that is the family Christmas.
"I dedicate this house to the Griswold Family Christmas."
"Bend over and I'll show you."
"Oh, Eddie... If I woke up tomorrow with my head sewn to the carpet, I wouldn't be more surprised than I am now." - Clark Griswold
I'd say one of Will Ferrel's first in a long line of classics.
"First we'll make snow angels for two hours, then we'll go ice skating, then we'll eat a whole roll of Tollhouse Cookie-dough as fast as we can, and then we'll snuggle."
"We elves try to stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup."
"Santa! Oh my god! Santa's coming! I know him! I know him!"
"I just like smiling, smiling is my favorite" - Buddy the Elf
A Christmas Story
"Oh my god, I shot my eye out!"- Ralphie
Jim Carrey is my home boy

Disclaimer: As an intern in DC this summer, each and every day on my way to work, I lie witness to several homeless men digging thru trash for breakfast, only to arrive at my office to a line out the door at Starbucks. I just got to thinking, you could buy a meal for the price you pay for a Frappucino. I wish more people would sacrifice their over-priced morning pleasure, just one day a week, to help feed someone in need.
