Page 3 of 3

5. "You sit on a throne of lies."

Will Ferrell always seems to say the most outrageous insults, written in the script or off the cuff from the depths of his own wild mind. But in telling the department store Santa he "smells like beef and cheese," we think he hit the nail on the head.

4. "Sit still."

Childhood innocence doesn't get more real than putting things that don't belong into your mouth. So Buddy goes the doctor, he uses slight of hand to sneak just one more of those fluffy, yummy cotton balls. Mmmm.

3. "Syrup in coffee, why didn't I think of that!"

Leave it to Buddy to, one, make friends with the folks working in a giant dingy mailroom and, two, turn the whole affair into a joyous party. All it takes is a little special syrup.
