Movie Quote of the Day (‘A Christmas Story,’ With the Dreaded ‘Triple-Dog-Dare’)

Flick (played by Scott Schwartz):” Are you kidding? Stick my tongue to that stupid pole? That's dumb!”

Schwartz (played by R.D. Robb): “That's 'cause you know it'll stick!”

Flick: “You're full of it!”

Schwartz: “Oh yeah?”

Flick: “Yeah!”

Schwartz: “Well I double-DOG-dare ya!”

Ralphie as Adult: [voice of Jean Shepherd, narrating] “NOW it was serious. A double-dog-dare. What else was there but a ‘triple dare you’? And then, the coup de grace of all dares, the sinister triple-dog-dare.”

Schwartz: “I TRIPLE-dog-dare ya!”

Ralphie as Adult: [narrating] “Schwartz created a slight breach of etiquette by skipping the triple dare and going right for the throat!”— A Christmas Story (1983), screenplay by Jean Shepherd, Leigh Brown and Bob Clark, based on Shepherd’s novel In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash, directed by Bob Clark
