Sorry Dana. Didn't see your post about Flick. Duh me!
Mary, lol, me too. I also like the part where Flick sticks his tongue on the frozen flag pole. I find the most poignant moments to be where Ralphy learns his lesson in commercialism with his Little Orphan Annie decoder ring and when he becomes like his dad, beating up the town bully. Of course, my very favorite moment is when Ralphy gets his BB. gun from his Father after he has given up on it as the gift he wanted so much. The whole movie is great and I am glad they show it for 24 hours on TNT. Rejenia and I just let it play in the background of our Christmas day. We never see all of it in any one sitting, it's just there for us to enjoy our favorite seens as they appear.

Dana, sorry about that; I didn't have any comment about A Christmas Story except I'm glad someone else enjoys that movie. I don't like profanity too much and I think a little of it could have been cut out, but then that's just personal preference. I really hope that movie's become a modern classic; it is so typical of stuff that happens during the holidays, in any generation. I think some of the funniest parts are when the furnace misbehaves and the father goes down to the basement and yells and carries on. Reminds me of Thanksgiving when our kitchen sink always clogged up and Dad had to go out and so something to fix it.
