"Elf" is composed of one-liners throughout the movie. These unique and hilarious phrases differentiate "Elf" from other holiday movies (and comedies) because it makes the movie memorable. There's not one line that's funny; every one line is funny. The fish-out-of-water situations that place Buddy the Elf in New York City are heightened by lines such as:
- Believing the "world's best coffee sign" on a coffee shop window: You
did it! Congratulations! World's best cup of coffee! Great job, everybody! It's
great to be here.
- I'm a cotton-headed ninny-muggins.
- "I'm sorry I ruined your lives, and crammed eleven cookies into the VCR."
- 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.
