You might be able to spout most of the lines, and even sing the songs, during todays Elf Quote-a-Long, but dont expect to keep up with Buddy the Elfs l-o-n-g burp at the dinner table. Only masters like Will Ferrell can manage that. In case you dont have all your Elf quotes down, take a cheat sheet. One of our favorite lines: We elves try to stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup. Theres also Buddys confession to Jovie: I think youre really beautiful and I feel really warm when Im around you and my tongue swells up. And of course, theres the signature, SANTA is coming! (If you do that right, youre sure to sprain a vocal chord, so take some throat spray along with you.) 8 p.m. Alamo Drafthouse, West Oaks, 1000 West Oaks. For information, call 281-920-9211 or visit www.drafthouse.com. $9.
