Vegas Vacation

Synopsis: When Clark Griswold puts his mind to something, we soon realize he hasn't got one. Still, nothing stops him when the vacation bug hits. This time, he's chosen Las Vegas, the new family entertainment capital of America! Chevy Chase returns as bubbly, bumbling Clark in Vegas Vacation, a jokers-are-wild laugh fest including two other stars from past Vacations. Beverly D'Angelo is back as wife Ellen, doting on the guy she calls "Sparky," and Randy Quaid again delights as grubby goof ball Cousin Eddie. Ethan Embry (That Thing You Do!) and screen-debuting Marisol Nichols are Griswold teens who love the round-the-clock nightlife - as long as they don't share it with Mom and Dad! From Seigfried and Roy's extravaganza to a Hoover Dam tour, from cruising to losing (Wallace Shawn as a shifty blackjack dealer) to amorous crooning (Wayne Newton falls for Ellen): watch Clark try to keep family and wallet together!

Any questions?

No, not really.


Did you get that?

Well, let's go then. Thanks.

Good luck!

What's this?

Look at these people. Blinded

by glitter and the almighty dollar.

The elevators are there.

Hold on, honey.

They always put the machines

that pay the most in front.


Here we go!

You see, Las Vegas is already

bringing us closer together.

Let's go to the room.

Honey, call up the kids.

See how they like this.

Rusty and Audrey Griswold, please.

We're right next door.

Can't we get our own rooms?

Please don't spoil your daddy's fun.

Dad, we're too old for this.

Sit down.


remember when you were babies?

It was a wonderful time.

We had your cribs right in our room.

We'd wrap you up in little blankets...

and roll you back and forth

across the bed into each other.

Those days...

they're almost over.


To close out that wonderful chapter,

I got tickets to Siegfried and Roy.

Best show on the planet?

Masters of the impossible?

We're going because we're the Griswolds!

Can't you just wrap me up in a blanket

and roll me across the bed?

No, Russ. Get dressed.

Want to try some blackjack?

What do you know about blackjack, Clark?

You forget I was in the Army.

You weren't in the Army.

Not in the Army, but I have

played cards with men in uniform.

Just don't want you to lose

all your money.

When a man can come to Las Vegas

with a few extra bucks in his pocket...

throw a ten-spot down on a table...

pay an extra dollar

for a steak with his eggs...

that's a happy day for that man.

When his woman is at his side...

Is that Wayne Newton?

Why, you want his autograph?

I think he's staring at me.

No, no, no. I must be tired.

Maybe I'll go find the kids.

I think they want a little time

away from Mama and Papa Bear.
