Clark: Oh, I was just smelling - smiling. I was just blouse - browsing. I, uh, heh heh. Well, I guess it just wouldn't... Oh hee hee, it wouldn't be the Christmas shopping season if the stores were any less hooter than they - HOTTER than they are. Whew. It is warm in here, isn't it?
Mary: You have your coat on.
Clark: Yes, oh do I? Yeah, it is a bit nipply out. I mean nippy. What am I saying, nipple?
Why do they make Russ and Audrey sleep in the same bed in the spare bedroom when Ellen's parents get to sleep in separate bunks on Russ' bunk bed? This makes absolutely no sense. See more...

National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation (1989) - 13 with pictures
Screenshots of mistakes that have been online for less than a year are only visible to members, but the rest are available to everyone. Don't forget to check out the picture of the day, updated daily, and the top 30 screenshots too.
Visible crew/equipment: Just before Clark goes down the hill on the saucer sled you see the view down the hill. If you look carefully at the right of the screen you can see two pinkish cables stretch into the distance. These are the pyrotechnics that make the explosions when Clark sets off. You can see it clearly on the DVD version, but not too clearly in the VHS one.
Continuity: When Clark is sliding down the hill on the sled, several times you can see fins on the bottom of the sled to help whoever was riding the sled control the direction a little better. When Clark is rubbing the oil on the bottom of the sled before he starts the sled is completely flat on the bottom.
Other: When Uncle Lewis lights the cigar that sets the Christmas tree on fire, watch closely. It shows side shots of Clark eating his dinner, and you can see the tree in the living room. The camera cuts back to Lewis lighting his cigar, and then back to Clark at the exact same angle as before. However, this time the tree is gone. Then you see the flames shoot out.
