The best way to watch holiday films each year is yelling out quotes for all to hear! To get you ready for our screening of How the Grinch Stole Christmas at The Hawthorne, check out our top six quotable lines from this children’s Christmas classic.
Raw Roast Beast
Whatever it is, it’s something that should definitely exist outside of the Seussian realm. The Grinch, however, is no fan: “Raw roast beast is a feast I can't stand in the least!”
Pooh-Poohing the Whos
All the Whos in Whoville walked right into this one.
"’Pooh-pooh to the Whos!’ he was grinchily humming.
’They're finding out now that no Christmas is coming!’”
You’re a Mean One
In a theme song full of creative burns, the most memorable verse engages all our senses to increase our distaste for the icky, ooky, stinky Mr. Grinch.
You're a monster, Mr. Grinch.
Your heart's an empty hole.
Your brain is full of spiders,
You've got garlic in your soul.
I wouldn't touch you, with a...thirty-nine-and-a-half foot pole.
It Came Without Ribbons
Not big on giving presents? You’re in good company: Neither are the Whos! When the Grinch takes away all the trappings of the holiday, the celebrations continue anyway – to his dismay and to our delight!
“It came without ribbons! It came without tags!
It came without packages, boxes, or bags!"
Somehow the Grinch’s revelation that Christmas doesn’t come from a store still feels like a revelation. This year, let’s focus on that little bit more.
“‘Maybe Christmas,’ he thought, ‘doesn't come from a store.
Maybe Christmas… perhaps… means a little bit more.’"
We Have We
What’s the main ingredient for cooking up a perfect holiday? It’s all about connection. Just as the Whos show and the Grinch discovers, togetherness brings an everlasting feeling of celebration: “Christmas Day will always be just as long as we have we.”
