Ralphie: Oooh fudge!
Narrator (Ralphie as an adult): Only I didn't say "Fudge." I said THE word, the big one, the queen-mother of dirty words, the "F-dash-dash-dash" word!
Father: WHAT DID YOU SAY?
Ralphie: Uh.... Father: That's what I thought you said. Get in the car. Go on!
Narrator (Ralphie as an adult): It was all over. I was dead. What would it be? The guillotine? Hanging? The chair? The rack? The Chinese water torture? Hmmm. Mere child's play compared to what surely awaited me.. #pbmexpress #nerdyfact #ralphie #achristmasstory
