Buddy the Elf Makes HUB Late Night Debut

It looks like Buddy the Elf has passed through the seven levels of the Candy Cane forest, through the sea of swirly twirly gumdrops, and is making his way to the HUB. As part of HUB Late Night, the students activities office is spreading Christmas cheer by showing “Elf.”

For those have been living underground for the last nine years, “Elf” is a 2003 Christmas movie starring Will Farrell. In order to get warmed up and into the Christmas spirit, I have complied a list of the top ten most memorable (in no particular order) Buddy quotes from the movie. And for any of you martians who haven’t seen it, take notes.

1) “You did it! Congratulations! World’s best cup of coffee! Great job, everybody! It’s great to be here.”

2) “I’m sorry I ruined your lives and crammed eleven cookies into the VCR.”


4) “The best way to spread Christmas Cheer is singing loud for all to hear.”

5) “We elves try to stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns, and syrup.”

6) “I just like to smile. Smiling’s my favorite.”

7) “You sit on a throne of lies.” (Buddy confronting the fake Santa Claus)

8) “First we’ll make snow angels for two hours, then we’ll go ice skating, then we’ll eat a whole roll of Tollhouse Cookie-dough as fast as we can, and then we’ll snuggle.”

9) Mr. Narwhal: “Bye, Buddy! Hope you find your dad!” (Okay, so this one isn’t Buddy, but come on, it’s classic.)

10) And if there were only a way that this could be quoted:

The first showing of “Elf” is Thursday, December 6 at 9 p.m. and will play through Sunday in the HUB Auditorium.
