Movie Quotes: Nightmare Before Christmas

This is truly one of my all time favorite movies for both Halloween and Christmas, the season really doesn't matter to me because Tim Burton is a genius all times of the year!! The songs are brilliant (What's This? is my ringtone for email) and the animation style is amazing and unique. My office room is filled to the brim with Jack and Sally toys, snowglobes, and music boxes, and I have blankets, sheets and pillowcases too! Don't even ask how many times I have seen the movie over the last decade or so...probably more than I care to count. Seriously, who doesn't love Jack and Sally? Halloweentown?

A few favorite lines:

*Mayor: Jack, please, I'm only an elected official here, I can't make decisions by myself!


*Santa: Haven't you heard of peace on earth and goodwill toward men?
  Lock, Shock, Barrel: NO!

*Jack: Sally! I need your help most of all.
  Sally: You certainly do, Jack. I've had the most horrible vision!
  Jack: That's splendid!


*Dr. Finkelstein: You've poisoned me for the last time, you wretched girl!


*Oogie Boogie: J-J-J-Jack! But they said you were dead. You must be - double dead!


*Jack: Eureka! This year, Christmas will be - OURS!


*Jack and Sally: And sit together, now and forever. For it is plain, as anyone can see. We're simply meant to be.


*Jack Skelington: [singing] What's this? What's this? There's color everywhere! What's this? There's white things in the air! What's this? I can't believe my eyes, I must be dreaming; wake up, Jack, this isn't fair! What's this?

FIrst time I saw this movie I was stunned that I found an animated skeleton so sexy. I have some serious love for Jack Skellington. :-) Took my son to it and it scarred him. Anything by Tim Burton freaks him out. Kinda funny. I did see the 3D version with my daughter and was not impressed. Wasn't originally made for 3D so they shouldn't have messed with it.

I'll have to dig this one out and watch again soon!

I'm a huge Elfman fan, so this is one of my favorite films...right up there with Edward Scissorhands :) The music for both ...STUNNING!
