Fridge: A Christmas Story
Fridge Brilliance
  • Man, that's a large mountain Santa's on. That's a huge box for such an underwhelming Leg Lamp. They BANDAGED Flick's tongue? What? Oh wait, it's a 'middle-aged man's retelling of what he saw through the eyes of a 9-year-old - of course everything is exaggerated!
    • This also neatly explains any anachronisms in the movie.
    • Likewise, Scut Farkus' supposed yellow eyes and Grover Dill's supposed green teeth are both directly contradicted by onscreen evidence, suggesting the narrator was making a good story of it at times...
  • When Ralphie's Old Man is asking him what Ralphie asked Santa for, on the second viewing it hits you that he had just bought Ralphie his BB gun while Ralphie was talking to Santa.
