#1 Daniel Stern’s scream when Kevin puts the tarantula on his face is, for my money, the greatest on-screen scream in the history of cinema and it never fails to crack me up.

#2 I also love in the second movie, where Catherine O’Hara and the dad are at the police station explaining it isn’t the first time they’ve lost Kevin, etc. but they also never manage to lose their luggage lolz and they both laugh and knock on the desk/wood. The look on the cop’s face is priceless!

#3 I have such a love for the scene towards the beginning as they’re preparing to leave for the airport, and the neighbour kid is asking all the inane questions to the taxi drivers.

“Did you know the McCallisters are going to France? Do you know if it’s cold there? Do these vans get good gas mileage?”

Destroys me every time to the bafflement of my wife and children

#4 When he gets ready to hit the spider (on the other bandits chest) with a crowbar gets me every time

#5 When Buzz is explaining why he doesn’t care that Kevin got left for “three reasons” and then lists them as reason A, 2, and D

Why did you take your shoes and socks off?

Why are you dressed like a chicken?

I don’t know know why, but that bit gets me every time

Kevin had the best lines:

Waiter: “Two Scoops, Sir?”

Kevin: “Two? Make it 3, I’m not driving”


Kevin: “No Clothes on anybody. Sickening”

#8 “I wouldn’t let you sleep in my room if you were growing on my a*s.” Just the way Buzz says it, and Kevin’s look of pure shock/terror gave me a chuckle as a kid and still does to this day.

#9 “I know you’re not the real Santa. I’m old enough to know how this works…. but I also know you work for him.”

#10 For me it’s 2 scenes in the second one. When Marv falls down the hole in the house, stands, looks up, and says “Wow, What a hole!” Then when he says “Suck brick kid!” And misses by like 8 feet ?

#11 I totally agree with you. Just watched this a couple days ago and rewinded to watch the van scene a couple of times.

Also, at the end “how did you guys get home?” “Oh, we took the morning flight. Remember? The one you didn’t want to wait for.”

And Buzz being shocked that Kevin went grocery shopping then a few moments later, “KEVIN, what did you do to my room?!?!”

#12 I totally understand. My favorite bit in home alone 2 is when Harry reads the newspaper in Central Park and out of the blue he starts whacking away at a pigeon nearby. I crack up every time.

#13 I just love kieran culkins grin when kevin hears he may need to share a bed with him. *sips more pepsi

#14 Agree on the John Candy scene. Also love the first scene with him talking about his polka band…”we’re big in Sheboygan”.

The other scene that makes me roll every time is the pizza delivery guy/filthy animal scene. The thought of being that guy and hearing, “keep the change, you filthy animal” cracks me up every time!

#15 The funniest part of Home Alone that doesn’t involve Macaulay Culkin or slapstick for me is uncle Frank trying to console Kevin’s mom by saying he forgot his reading glasses.

“Kevin go pack your suitcase.”

“Pack… My suitcase???”

The camera zooming in as a 5 year old kid goes wide eyed realizing he doesn’t know how to pack his suitcase is gold.

#17 I always crack up when Kevin’s buying groceries and tells the clerk “It’s for the kids”.

#18 My absolute favorite moment in the movie is when Harry is trying to open the basement door and he keeps slipping on the ice. That scene has made me belly laugh since I was a child.

#19 I love the part in the second one where Marv says, in a very nasal voice, “That was the sound of a tool chest, falling down the stairs”

#20 I love when Kevin uses a folk and knife with his Mac & Cheese Dinner.

Shanilou has always loved reading and learning about the world we live in. While she enjoys fictional books and stories just as much, since childhood she was especially fascinated by encyclopaedias and strangely enough, self-help books. As a kid, she spent most of her time consuming as much knowledge as she could get her hands on and could always be found at the library. Now, she still enjoys finding out about all the amazing things that surround us in our day-to-day lives and is blessed to be able to write about them to share with the whole world as a profession.
