“A lovely cheese pizza just for me.”

From: Home Alone (1990)

Genre: Movies

Who said it?: Kevin McCallister

The story behind the quote: This week’s quote comes from the Holiday film, Home Alone. The movie follows the adventures of Kevin McCallister who was left home alone by accident. The young boy uses his ingenuity in order to keep the appearance that he is not by himself.

The quote comes from the middle of the film. Kevin McCallister (played by Macaulay Culkin) orders a pizza for himself. In order to give the impression that there is an adult, he plays snippets of the fake film “Angels with Filthy Souls” to be his adult stand in. Once he finally picks up his order, he delivers the quote.

Geek wisdom: When it comes to gift giving during the holidays, you don’t have to have the grand gesture or the most expensive item in the store. Sometimes, all you need is the simplest thing. But, if you know the person who’s receiving it will love it, they’ll appreciate it even more.

Most of my childhood (and adult life) was spent doing a lot of geeky stuff: watching TV, playing video games and going to the movies. To some, it may have been a waste of time. Well, to me, it has made me what I am today... a geeky adult. I actually write for a couple of blogs, namely: geekwisdom.wordpress.com 3rdworldgeeks.com gamemoir.com Please check them out!
