Ralph Kramden’s – Speech


ralph kramden

The Honeymooners was a live television comedy show that ran in the 1950’s.  Ralph Kramden was played by the incredible Jackie Gleason.

Ralph Kramden: You know something, sweetheart? Christmas is… well, it’s about the best time of the whole year. When you walk down the streets, even for weeks before Christmas comes, and there’s lights hanging up, green ones and red ones, sometimes there’s snow and everyone’s hustling some place. But they don’t hustle around Christmastime like they usually do. You know, they’re a little more friendlier… they bump into you, they laugh and they say, “Pardon me. Merry Christmas”… especially when it gets real close to Christmas night. Everybody’s walking home, you can hardly hear a sound. Bells are ringin’, kids are singing, the snow is coming down. And boy what a pleasure it is to think that you’ve got some place to go to. And that the place that you’re going to, there’s somebody in it that you really love. Some one you’re nuts about. Merry Christmas.

Money was always an issue in the household and and on this episode Ralph sold his bowling ball to get a present for his wife, Alice.
