The HOME ALONE Dialogues: Part 3

INT. RESTAURANT - EARLIER TONIGHT 

THE KID is sipping PEPSI through a straw. CARL is drinking PEPSI the normal way, and CRAIG doesn't have a PEPSI.


CARL 
You think it's the right time now to watch Home Alone?

THE KID 
Yeah, maybe. 

CARL
Yeah. 

THE KID 
I think you should watch 'Home Alone' on the 23rd, and 'Home Alone 2' on the 24th, Christmas eve. 

CARL
Yeah that sounds good. 

CRAIG 
What about if you're busy Christmas eve?

THE KID
What about it?

CRAIG 
Then you can't watch Home Alone. 


THE KID 
I'm talking about in an ideal world, the ideal time to be watching 'Home Alone' is in the days preceding Christmas. 

CRAIG
Does precede mean before or after? 

THE KID
Before or after what? 

CRAIG 
Before or after the thing you used the word precede for. 

CARL
So when should I watch 'Home Alone'?

CRAIG
Whenever you want.

THE KID
No, not whenever you want. 23rd, 24th. 25th is better, but you probably have to do family stuff. 

CRAIG 
I watched 'Home Alone' in November. 

CARL
Why?

CRAIG
It was on TV.

CARL
You should never watch Home Alone in November. 

CRAIG
Why?

THE KID
Because you should watch it in December. 

CRAIG 
It's just a movie. 

THE KID
No.

CARL 
No. 


You can read part 1 here. And part 2 here. Rumors that the Home Alone dialogues are being turned into a movie starring Ryan Reynolds are, at this point, not confirmed. 

Care to share?

  1. Yes!! Craig speaks!

    I've still never seen Home Alone 2, but I don't really have any interest in it. I remember thinking when it came out that they used a lot of the same jokes, and that bugged me.

    If you should only watch Home Alone during the days leading up to Christmas, when should you watch It's A Wonderful Life?
