[Singing] And since I am dead, I can take off my head, to recite Shakespearean quotations / No animal or man can SCREAM like I can, with the fury of my recitations!

[Singing] What's this? / What's this? / There's color everywhere / What's this? / There's white things in the air / What's this? / I can't believe my eyes, I must be dreaming / Wake up, Jack! This isn't fair! / What's this?

[Singing] There's children throwing snowballs / instead of throwing heads / they're busy building toys / and absolutely no one's dead!

[Singing] Of course I've been too close to see, the answer's right in front of me!

[Singing] Just because I cannot see it doesn't mean I can't believe it!

[Singing] You know, I think this Christmas thing / Is not as tricky as it seems, / And why should they have all the fun? / It should belong to anyone! / Not anyone, in fact, but me! / Why, I could make a Christmas tree, / And there's no reason I can find / I couldn't handle Christmas time! / I bet I could improve it, too, / And that's exactly what I'll do!

Eureka! This year Christmas will be ours!

[Singing] I sense there's something in the wind/ that feels like tragedy at hand./ And though I'd like to stand by him/ can't shake this feeling that I have.

[singing] And will we ever / End up together? / No, I think not / It's never to become / For I am not the one.

[To his new creation] You will be a decided improvement over that treacherous Sally. We'll have conversations worth having.

It's Oogie's turn to Boogie now!

Mayor: [cheerfully] How horrible our Christmas will be!
Jack: No, how JOLLY!
Mayor: Ohhh... [depressed] How jolly our Christmas will be...

Sally: I had the most terrible vision.
Jack: That's splendid!
Sally: No - it was about your Christmas. There was smoke, and fire...
Jack: That's not MY Christmas! MY Christmas is filled with laughter, and joy... and this: my Sandy Claws outfit. I want you to make it.
Sally: Jack, please listen to me. It's going to be a disaster!
Jack: How could it be? Just follow the pattern! This part's red, the trim is white...
Sally: It's a mistake, Jack!
Jack: Now, don't be modest. Who else is clever enough to make my Sandy Claws outfit?

Santa: Haven't you heard of peace on Earth, and goodwill toward men?
Lock, Shock, Barrel: NO!

Shock: [pushing Santa down the pipe] I think he might be too big!
Lock: No he's not. If he can fit down a chimney, he can fit down here.
