Mr. Darin McGavin, the hilarious, unforgettable father from “A Christmas Story”, passed away this weekend. He’ll always be Mr. Parker to me. Here are some quotes from “A Christmas Story”:
Mr. Parker/McGavin: Fra-gee-lay. That must be Italian.
Mrs. Parker: Uh, I think that says FRAGILE, dear.
Mr. Parker/McGavin: Oh, yeah.
Mr. Parker/McGavin: He looks like a deranged Easter Bunny.
Mother: He does not!
Mr. Parker/McGavin: He does too, he looks like a pink nightmare!
The Old Man/McGavin: [shouting] Don’t anybody move! Hold it right there! The fuse is out.
Mr. Parker/McGavin: You mundane noodle!
Ralphie as Adult: The old man stood there, quivering with fury, stammering as he tried to come up with a real crusher. All he got out was…
The Old Man/McGavin: Notafinga!
