RUSS: Why can't Audrey do it?
ELLEN: Because Audrey has company. Rusty, come on!
RUSS: Wait a minute.
CLARK GRISWOLD: Russ, obey your mother.
AUDREY: I can't stand the thought of being away from you for whole two weeks.
JACK: It'll be like before we met.
AUDREY: Before we met, my life was horrible and meaningless. Wasn't yours?
JACK: Sort of.
CLARK GRISWOLD: Let's light it up!
ELLEN: Audrey, please eat something.
CLARK GRISWOLD: Everybody, listen up.
Let's look at the map and go over our schedule.
The plane will fly us from Chicago to London.
RUSS: That's Madrid, Dad.
CLARK GRISWOLD: You're right. This must be one of those old medieval maps.
AUDREY: Dad, I made a decision. I can't leave Jack. Besides, the food in Europe is fattening.
JACK: And I like her thin. She eats too much.
ELLEN: Clark, why don't you and I go alone? It's obvious the kids don't even want to go.
CLARK GRISWOLD: Of course they do. We're a family. We're going to Europe as a family.
AUDREY: Don't we have a say in this?
RUSS: I think we should vote on it.

RUSS: Who will be president?
CLARK GRISWOLD: Let's vote on that. We'll have a secret ballot. Write down your choice give it to your mother. This will be for the President of the Republic of Griswald.
ELLEN: All right, that's one for Clark. One for Rusty. One for Jack. One for Clark.
