    Kevin McCallister: [appears in front seat and takes the last passport] Fourteen. It's a good thing I have my own ticket just in case you guys try to ditch me.

  • Kate McCallisterPeter McCallister: [awakening late on morning of travel, again] We did it again! Aaah!

  • Officer Bennett: [talking to Peter McCallister, and finding out that Kevin has credit cards] We'll notify the credit card companies immediately. IF you son has the cards, we can get the location on him, *when* and if he uses them.

    Kate McCallister: No, I don't think Kevin even knows how to use a credit card.

    [at the Plaza Hotel, Mrs. Stone puts the credit card into payment]

    Kevin McCallister: [watching in bewilderment] Wow, it worked.

  • Kate McCallister: Why don't you just sit up here for a while and think things over? When you're ready to apologize to Buzz and to the rest of the family, you can come down.

    Kevin McCallister: I'm not apologizing to Buzz; I'd rather kiss a toilet seat!

    Kate McCallister: Then you can stay up here the rest of the night.

    Kevin McCallister: Fine, I don't wanna be down there, anyway. I can't trust anybody in this family. And you know what? If I had my own money, I'd go on my own vacation. Alone. Without any of you guys. And I'd have the most fun in my whole life.

  • Kevin McCallister: [staring at the Rockefeller Center tree] I know I don't deserve a Christmas, even if I did do a good deed. I don't want any presents. Instead, I want to take back every mean thing I ever said to my family. Even if they don't take back the things they said to me. I don't care. I love all of them... Including Buzz. I know it isn't possible to see them all. Could I just see my mother? I'll never want another thing as long as I live if I can just see my mother. I know I won't see her tonight, but promise me I can see her again. Sometime. Any time. Even if it's just once and only for a couple minutes. I just need to tell her I'm sorry.

    Kate McCallister: Kevin?

    Kevin McCallister: Mom?

    [Turns back to the tree]

    Kevin McCallister: Wow, that worked fast.

  • Cop in Times Square: Look, put yourself in your kid's shoes. Where would you go? What would you do?

    Kate McCallister: I'd probably be lying dead in a gutter somewhere... but not Kevin, Kevin is so much stronger and braver than I am. But he's still a kid lost in a big city, he doesn't deserve that. He should be at home with his family around his Christmas tree... oh my God, I know where he is, I need to get to Rockefeller Center immediately.

  • [Kevin looks out a window of the Plaza Hotel and sees a shining star on the top of a building as a choir sings "Christmas Star" in the background]

    Kevin McCallister: Good night, Mom.

    Kate McCallister: [looking out a window of the hotel in Florida, where it's raining] Good night, Kevin.

  • Kate McCallister: [to the concierge at the Plaza Hotel] It's Christmas Eve and because of you, our son is lost in one of the biggest cities in the world.

  • Officer Bennett: Has the boy ever run away from home?

    Peter McCallister: No.

    Officer Bennett: Has he ever been in a situation where's been on his own?

    Kate McCallister: [Kate shakes her head. Peter gives her a look] As a matter of fact, this has happened before. It's become sort of a McCallister family travel tradition.

    Peter McCallister: Funnily enough, we never lose our luggage.

    [They both laugh, and knock on the wooden desk]

    Kate McCallister: [Officer Bennett does not laugh] He was left at home, by accident, last year.

    Peter McCallister: That's what my wife meant when she said this has become a McCallister family travel tradition.

  • Buzz McCallister: [after making a formal apology to the family; whispers to Kevin] Beat that, you little trout sniffer.

    Kevin McCallister: [gets up] I'm not sorry. I did what I did because Buzz humiliated me and since he gets away with everything, I let him have it. And since you're all so STUPID to believe his lies, I don't care if your idiotic Florida trip gets wrecked or not! Who wants to spend Christmas in a tropical climate, anyway?

    [turns to leave]

    Kate McCallister: Kevin!

    Peter McCallister: Kevin, you walk out of here and you sleep on the third floor.

    Fuller McCallister: [gleefully] Yeah, with me.

    Kevin McCallister: So what else is new?

    Uncle Frank McCallister: You better not wreck my trip, you little sour puss, your dad's paying good money for it.

    Kevin McCallister: Oh, wouldn't wanna spoil your fun, Mr. Cheap Skate!


    Buzz McCallister: What a troubled young man.

  • Kate McCallister: Well you got your wish last year, maybe you'll get it again this year.

    Kevin McCallister: I hope so!

  • Kate McCallister: Honey, are you packed yet?

    Kevin McCallister: [records into Talk Boy] Yes.

    Talk Boy: [plays back] Yes.

    Kate McCallister: Everything I put out for you?

    Kevin McCallister: [records into Talk Boy] Yes.

    Talk Boy: [plays back] Yes.

  • Kevin McCallister: Why do we have to go to Florida? There's no Christmas trees in Florida.

    Kate McCallister: Kevin, what is it with you and Christmas trees?

    Kevin McCallister: How could you have Christmas without a Christmas tree, Mom?

    Kate McCallister: Well... Find a nice, fake silver one. Or decorate a palm tree.

  • Peter McCallister: I don't think that it's a good idea for you to be running all over New York all by yourself.

    Kate McCallister: I think that if our son can do it, I can do it.

    Peter McCallister: Kate, it...

    Kate McCallister: Peter, I'll be fine. The way I'm feeling right now, no mugger or murderer would dare mess with me.

    Mr. Hector, Hotel Concierge: Madam, there are hundreds of parasites out there, armed to the teeth...

    [Kate slaps him]

    Mr. Hector, Hotel Concierge: Do bundle up, it's awfully cold outside.

    [starts to cry]

  • Kate McCallister: Oh, did you see what Grandma Penelope sent you for the trip?

    Kevin McCallister: Um, let me guess... Donald Duck slippers?

    Kate McCallister: Close. An inflatable clown to play with in the pool.

    Kevin McCallister: [sarcastically] How exciting.

  • Kevin McCallister: [apprehensively] I made my family disappear.

    [thinks back to family members saying bad things about him]

    Megan McCallister: Kevin, you're completely helpless!

    Linnie McCallister: You know, Kevin, you're what the French call les incompetents.

    Buzz McCallister: Kevin, I'm going to feed you to my tarantula.

    Jeff McCallister: Kevin, you are *such* a *disease*!

    Kate McCallister: There are 15 people in this house and you're the only one who has to make trouble.

    Frank McCallister: Look what you *did*, you little *jerk*.

    Kevin McCallister: [gleefully] I made my family disappear.

    Peter McCallister: Yeah.

    [She sits back; after a pause]

    Peter McCallister: No, that's not it.

    Kate McCallister: Well, what else could we be forgetting?

    [She sits back again; after an even longer pause, she jumps upright]

  • Kate McCallister: Heather, did you count heads?

    Heather McCallister: Eleven, including me. Five boys, six girls, four parents, two drivers, and a partridge in a pear tree.

  • Kate McCallister: I have been awake for almost 60 hours. I'm tired and I'm dirty. I have been from Chicago to Paris to Dallas to... where the hell am I?

    Kate McCallister: [finally letting her aggravation out] I am trying to get home to my eight-year-old son. And now that I'm this close, you're telling me it's hopeless?

  • [Kevin has just caused a scene in the kitchen and Buzz has him in a headlock]

    Kate McCallister: Look, stop, stop! What is the matter with you?

    Kevin McCallister: He started it! He ate my pizza on purpose! He knows I hate sausage and olives and onions and...

    Frank McCallister: [wiping dregs of soda off of his pants] Look what you did, you little jerk!

    [the rest of the family stare irately at Kevin]

  • Kate McCallister: How could we do this? We forgot him.

    Peter McCallister: We didn't forget him, we just miscounted.

    Peter McCallister: My NEW fish hooks?

    Kevin McCallister: I can't make ornaments out of the old ones, with dry worm guts stuck on them.

  • Kevin McCallister: Everyone in this family *hates* me!

    Kate McCallister: Then maybe you should ask Santa for a new family.

    Kevin McCallister: I don't want another family. I don't want any family. Families suck!

    Kate McCallister: Just stay up there. I don't want to see you again for the rest of the night.

    Kevin McCallister: *I* don't want to see you again for the rest of my whole life. And I don't want to see anybody else either.

    Kate McCallister: [softly] I hope you don't mean that. You'd feel pretty sad if you woke up tomorrow morning and you didn't have a family.

    Kevin McCallister: No, I wouldn't.

    Kate McCallister: Then say it again. Maybe it will happen.

    Kevin McCallister: I hope that I never see any of you jerks again!

    Kevin McCallister: I don't wanna sleep with Fuller. You know about him, he wets the bed. He'll pee all over me, I know it.

You know, we went back at night and apparently he had been alone all day with the corpse. He was okay though, after two, three weeks he came around and started talking again...

    Kate McCallister: I'm sorry I did.
