Grinch: Well done, Max! Serves them right, those yuletide-loving... sickly-sweet, nog-sucking cheer mongers! I really don't like 'em. Mm-mm. No, I don't. Max! Get my cloak. I've been much too tolerant of these Who-venile delinquents... and their innocent, victimless pranks. So, they wanna get to know me, do they? They want to spend a little quality time with the Grinch. I guess I could use a little... social interaction.
Grinch: Nerve of those Whos. Inviting me down there on such short notice. Even if I wanted to go, my schedule wouldn't allow it! 4:00: Wallow in self-pity. 4:30: Stare into the abyss. 5:00: Solve world hunger; tell no one. 5:30: Jazzercise. 6:30: Dinner with me; I can't cancel that again! 7:00: Wrestle with my self-loathing. I'm booked! Of course, if I bump the loathing to 9ː00, I could still be done in time to lay in the bed, stare at the ceiling and slip slowly into madness. But what would I wear?ǃ

Narrator: And the more the Grinch thought of this Christmas bring, The more the Grinch thought.

Echo: You're an idiot!
