Clark Griswold. The last true family man. It’s Christmas time and the Griswolds are preparing for a family seasonal celebration, but things never run smoothly for Clark and the rest of his clan. His hopes of putting in a swimming pool with his bonus check are crushed when Mr. Frank Shirley (his boss) decides to cut out Christmas bonuses that year. After countless other nuisances have already taken place leading up to the bad news, our family man nearly blows a gasket. He does give one of the best rants in movie history and we’ve gladly shared it below. Happy holidays everyone!
“Hey! If any of you are looking for any last-minute gift ideas for me, I have one. I’d like Frank Shirley, my boss, right here tonight. I want him brought from his happy holiday slumber over there on Melody Lane with all the other rich people and I want him brought right here, with a big ribbon on his head, and I want to look him straight in the eye and I want to tell him what a cheap, lying, no-good, rotten, four-flushing, low-life, snake-licking, dirt-eating, inbred, overstuffed, ignorant, blood-sucking, dog-kissing, brainless, dickless, hopeless, heartless, fat-ass, bug-eyed, stiff-legged, spotty-lipped, worm-headed sack of monkey shit he is! Hallelujah! Holy shit! Where’s the Tylenol?”
