Scut Farkus: Listen, jerk! When I tell you to come, you better come.
Scut Farkus: What, you're gonna cry now? Come on, crybaby! Cry for me, come on! CRY!
[mimicking Ralphie crying and laughing, Ralphie begins to glare at him]
Ralphie as an Adult: [narrating] Deep within the recesses of my brain, a tiny red hot little flame began to grow.
[Ralph finally lunges at Scut for a final showdown]
All of the lines about getting ready to go to school and putting on layers and layers remind me of my own childhood: "Getting ready to go to school was like getting ready for extended deep-sea diving"; "My kid brother looked like a tick about to pop!"; "I can't put my arms down!"
"Well... put your arms down when you get to school."
Ralphie: I want an official Red Ryder, carbine action, two-hundred shot range model air rifle!
Mrs. Parker: No, you'll shoot your eye out.
Mr. Parker: He looks like a deranged Easter Bunny.
Mother: He does not!
Mr. Parker: He does too, he looks like a pink nightmare!
Mr. Parker: Fra-gee-lay. That must be Italian.
Mrs. Parker: Uh, I think that says FRAGILE, dear.
Mr. Parker: Oh, yeah.
Ralphie: Oooh fuuudge!
Ralphie as Adult: [narrating] Only I didn't say "Fudge." I said THE word, the big one, the queen-mother of dirty words, the "F-dash-dash-dash" word!
Mr. Parker: [stunned] *What* did you say?
Ralphie: Uh, um...
Mr. Parker: That's... what I thought you said. Get in the car. Go on!
Ralphie as Adult: [narrating] It was all over - I was dead. What would it be? The guillotine? Hanging? The chair? The rack? The Chinese water torture? Hmmph. Mere child's play compared to what surely awaited me.
