The clip prologue from Elf (2003) with Bob Newhart, Michael Roberds
You're, uh, you're probably here
About the, Uh, the story.
Elves love to tell stories.
I-I'll bet you didn't know that about elves.
There's, uh, probably a lot of things
You... you didn't know about elves.
Another... another interesting Uh, elf ism
Uh, there are only three jobs available to an elf.
The first is making shoes at night
While, you know, while the old...
The old cobbler sleeps.
Lazy bum. Couldn't even make a clog.
You can bake cookies
In a tree. Hey!
As you can imagine, it's, uh, dangerous Having an oven
In an oak tree during the dry season.
Screaming I wanna make shoes!
But the third job... uh, some call It, uh,
"The show," or... or "the big dance,"
It's the profession that every elf Aspires to,
And that is to build toys in Santa's workshop.
Only two weeks left till Christmas!
I-it's a job only an elf can do.
Our... our nimble fingers,
Natural cheer and active minds
Are perfect for toy-building.
They... they tried using gnomes And trolls,
But the gnomes drank too much...
...and the trolls weren't toilet trained.
No human being has ever set... set foot in Santa's workshop.
Uh, that is until about 30 years ago,
And, as you may have guessed,
That's where our story begins.
