Christmas Break

Charlee: “The most bizarre aspect of this is Spicoli being right all along about Bumble being Producer Smurf.”
Producer Smurf: “Well I hope you’re happy! You’ve ruined everything! This was going to be the most smurfy prison break/Christmas movie mashup ever and instead all I have is a deflated Bumble balloon that I can’t even smurf back to Costco!”
Mouse: “Let me guess. You thought of the name ‘Christmas Break’ for your movie and worked backwards from there to come up with a plot.”

Bumble Fish

Chaplin: “Check it out, Charlee. Maybe you and this monster can bond over your shared shoe fetish.”
Spicoli: “You can like shoes if you want to, dude. To each his or her own, etc.”

The Decollection

Java Bean: “Has that gnome been back since I gave him that list of decorations I like?”
Lulu: “Not that I noticed, but I’ve been busy pretending to be going on a train ride.”
Java Bean: “Well that’s disappointing. It’s so hard to find good help these days.”

Armed & Dangerous

Charlee: “So what do you think?”
Chaplin: “Well, I mean, it’s definitely Santa’s arm and his mitten.”
Charlee: “And we know Dennis and Santa had a long-running feud.”
Chaplin: “Yes, yes we do know that.”
