    • Cindy-Lou Who: No! You don't understand. This isn't just A letter. This is THE letter.
    • [turns to face her]
    • Grinch: Oh, really? Let me guess. Small child, December 20th, rapidly searching for a 'really important' lost letter. Might it be your list of demands to Santa?
    • Cindy-Lou Who: They're not demands! It's more like a wish. And what I'm wishing for is really, really important.
    • Grinch: Well then, why send a letter? I mean, if it's really that important, you should just ask him face-to-face.

    • [Fred and Max exchange confused looks. The Grinch starts to slowly pull the present's ribbon, but regains his senses and tosses ]

    • [holds out a Santa-shaped sugar cookie]

    • [Fred tries to grab the cookie with his mouth, but the Grinch takes it away]
    • Grinch: No, no, no! Look at yourselves! Discipline! We must...
    • Narrator: All this excess and nonsense. It was all about greed. About meaningless stuff that they didn't even need. The Grinch went to work. He scooped up the toys. He raced against time. He raced against joy.
