"I'm eating junk and watching rubbish! You better come out and stop me!"
"Home Alone" is hands down one of the best Christmas movies of all time.
Not only has the holiday classic aged well (one could even say it gets better and better each year), but it's hilarious and dare I say... relatable. Before you go ahead and say "WHAT?! Relatable?" hear me out...
Because NO, I was not left alone at 8 years old while my entire family flew to Paris. But as a girl who's going home for Christmas without a boyfriend, some of the movie's best quotes PERFECTLY describe what it's like to be home for the holidays, single. And, quite frankly, it's the best way to spend it — with family and friends and absolutely no other worries.
Here are 16 hilarious "Home Alone" quotes that describe what it's like to be single (and home alone) for the holidays:
When you get home for Christmas break without a boyfriend to worry about and all the free time in the world: "I'm free! I'm free! I'm free!"
When you think about all the terrible men you dated in 2019: "I don't want to see you again for the rest of my whole life."
When your high school exes try to come crawling back into your life: "I wouldn't let you sleep in my room, if you were growing, on my ass!"

When you snack all day and night with no one to stop you: "I'm eating junk and watching rubbish! You better come out and stop me!"
