Elf may have been released in 2003, but it’s already become a Christmas classic that we look forward to watching every year, alongside older holiday movies like White Christmas and It’s A Wonderful Life. (Even Will Ferrell’s family watches it!)
As Buddy the Elf, Ferrell is a comedy machine, spitting out funny quotes and quips like “You sit on a throne of lies!” that make us LOL the whole movie through. We love Elf so much, that we wish Santa would bring us an Elf sequel for Christmas.
Until then, here are twelve awesome Elf quotes that we can’t stop repeating during the holidays.
“The best way to spread holiday cheer is singing loud for all to hear.”
“You sit on a throne of lies!”
“You have such a pretty face. You should be on a Christmas card.”
“You stink. You smell like beef and cheese. You don’t smell like Santa.”
[Answers the office phone] “Buddy the Elf. What’s your favorite color?”
“I just like to smile. Smiling’s my favorite.”
“I passed through the seven layers of the Candy Cane forest, through the sea of swirly twirly gum drops, and then I walked through the Lincoln Tunnel.”
“We elves try to stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup.”
“Son of a nutcracker!”
“I’m sorry I ruined your lives and crammed eleven cookies into the VCR.”
“So good news…I saw a dog today.”
“He’s an angry elf.”
