Great Christmas Moments | Day 7: Cousin Eddie utters the immortal line “Shitter was full” in ‘Christmas Vacation’ (1989)
Oh Cousin Eddie, will you ever learn? Perhaps the very best career performance by Randy Quaid (for my money anyway) comes as this slovenly, yet loveably, moron in ‘National Lampoons Christmas Vacation‘ (also one of the great Christmas movies, fact). Whilst yuppy onlookers gawp in disbelief, Cousin Eddie empties the toxic contents of his RV’s toilet into the neighbourhood storm drain; morning-beer in hand he utters the immortal line “Shitter was full“, not so much apologetically, but more so to comfort the disbelievers that emptying ones sewage contents publicly is as normal as going for an 1980s jog. Quaid awesomeness.
