Elf Quote-Along

You might be able to spout most of the lines, and even sing the songs, during today’s Elf Quote-a-Long, but don’t expect to keep up with Buddy the Elf’s l-o-n-g burp at the dinner table. Only masters like Will Ferrell can manage that. In case you don’t 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.” There’s also Buddy’s confession to Jovie: “I think you’re really beautiful and I feel really warm when I’m around you and my tongue swells up.” And of course, there’s the signature, “SANTA is coming!” (If you do that right, you’re 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.
