Scott Calvin: It's okay, I'm used to it. I lived through the '60s.

Dr. Neil Miller: Charlie, I'm sorry I didn't believe you.
Charlie: That's okay, Neil. You were just denying your inner child.
Dr. Neil Miller: You're going to make a great psychiatrist someday, kid.
Charlie: Nah. I think that I'm going to go into the family business.

Scott Calvin: Merry Christmas to all, and too all a good night! When I wake up, I'm getting a cat scan!

Bernard: Excuse me. Are we on a coffee break?
Kid Elf: We don't drink coffee.
Bernard: Then I guess THE break is over! Back to work. Thanks.

Scott Calvin: Here we are. Denny's. Always open.
Charlie: I don't wanna eat here.
Scott Calvin: What are you talking about? Everybody likes Denny's, it's an American institution.

Scott Calvin: Hey, I know where this is going. The other guy fell, it was an accident. I've got homeowners insurance, and a good attorney, not as good as my wife's - but let's not open up that wound.

Larry the Elf: You are, and I'm not a kid, I have pointy shoes that are older than you... I'm an elf.

Scott Calvin: Who gave you permission to tell Charlie there was no Santa Claus? I think if we're going to destroy our son's delusions, I should be a part of it.

Trivia: Another place to spot an elf is in the beginning when the children are looking through the toy store window. The next place to see elves is when Tim Allen gets arrested and there is a crowd around the house. If you look carefully, you can see that some of the children are actually elves.

More trivia for The Santa Clause

Question: When Scott and Charlie are at the North Pole the first time, why did the elf with the pole ignore Scott's talking? Is he deaf?

Trainman

Answer: The elf on top probably ignored him as he was in no position to answer him. The elves seem to have a stratified society [i.e. some make toys, Judy provides food/beverage, some do security etc.] so it was most likely his job just to punch in the code so the sleigh would descend. With Bernard being the head elf, and probably the most knowledgeable on all things Santa related, he would be in the best position to talk to Scott and answer all of his questions.
