Merry Christmas! Shitter was full! – an asshole in his bathrobe, emptying a chemical toilet into my sewer
In National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, Clark Griswold (Chevy Chase) gets his wish for a big family Christmas. When his wife Ellen (Beverly D’Angelo) worries that it might not be quite as perfect as he imagines, he says, “Christmas is about resolving differences and seeing through the petty problems in life.”

In this episode:
Howie, Tank & Googs discuss the best scenes, lines and moments from Christmas vacation. We identify the movie’s place in history, and speak about it’s place as a holiday tradition. This podcast is in no way a summary or breakdown of the film, but more of a celebration of its legacy.
Who is the best Rusty of all the Vacation movies? Your favorite Audrey? How did we connect Rusty Griswold to Magneto?
We recall a few of our favorite Christmas memories (Knight Rider, Sega Genesis, Nutmeg Shots) and as expected, we go a bit off the rails – here is a small sample of some of the hashtags that emerged from this epidode:
