I guess I should brace myself for another 24-hour marathon of A Christmas Story on TBS?

Bracing isn't necessary. This is one of the all-time great movies out there. Christmas or not.

Thanks Berry - now you've got me started...
[After Mother breaks the Old Man's Major Award, and he is unsuccessful at repairing it] With as much dignity as he could muster, the Old Man gathered up the sad remains of his shattered Major Award. Later that night, alone in the backyard, he buried it next to the garage. Now I could never be sure, but I thought that I heard the sound of "Taps" being played. Gently.

at my parents house you can often here the last line of this classic quote being repeated throughout the holidays.

[The old man stood there, quivering with fury, stammering as he tried to come up with a real crusher. All he got out was...

Not a finger!]
