Although it's been 30 years since Home Alone first graced audiences with its out-of-the-box premise, it's still on top of almost everyone's holiday movie list.

1. The Pizza Scene
You can't forget when the McCallister's house is packed with family for the holidays, and there's no cheese pizza left for Kevin, which leads to him tackling Buzz, spilled milk, and a whole lotta glaring faces.
2. Fuller's Pepsi
Fuller might remind you of one of your own cousins as a kid, and even if he doesn't, the close-up shot of him not going easy on the Pepsi is a classic.
3. "I Made My Family Disappear."
That moment when Kevin realizes he's home alone is iconic.
Catherine O'Hara's face when she realizes Kevin is home alone is so on point.
5. Little Nero's Pizza Guy
The teen delivering pizza from Little Nero's Pizza in the flick starts the movie off right, by knocking over the McCallister's statue with his car.
6. Kevin's Bed Head
Kevin's morning is already off to an odd start with some serious bed head, and then he finds out his family is gone.
7. Sledding Down The Stairs
The first thing to do when you're an 8-year-old who's home alone is sled down the stairs.
8. The After Shave Scream
Then Kevin learned being an adult isn't always all fun and games, especially when it comes to after shave.
9. Kevin Screaming (Again)
Macaulay Culkin had a ton of iconic screams in Home Alone, but this one looking directly into the camera is one of the best.
10. The Mountain Of Ice Cream
Kevin lived out every kid's dream with a mountain of ice cream and a forbidden movie, aka "eating junk and watching rubbish."
11. Decorating The Tree
What's a holiday movie with a tree decorating scene? But of course, this is when Kevin starts planning to prevent Harry and Marv from trying to rob the house.
12. Kevin In Front Of The Van
There's yet another Kevin scream when Harry and Marv almost hit him with their van.
13. Harry's Gold Tooth
One of the key things that gets Kevin recognizing Joe Pesci's Harry is his shiny gold tooth.
14. Kevin Jumping On The Bed
Kevin gets into all kinds of antics, but he's a pro at jumping on his parents' bed.
15. The Mannequin Party
Kevin's rigged party scene with the mannequins from his basement, as well as a clutch Michael Jordan cutout, is nothing if not pure genius.
16. Kevin Singing Into His Comb
TBH, Kevin's rendition of "White Christmas" could give Bing Crosby a run for his money.
17. "Keep The Change, Ya Filthy Animal"
One of the most memorable moments is Kevin using the fake movie Angels with Filthy Souls as a way to scare people off, including Marv.
18. Asking Santa For His Family
When Kevin rushes to ask a Santa impersonator for his help, he's not too much help, but he does give Kevin some Tic Tacs.
19. Harry Covered In Feathers
That moment when Marv asks Harry why he's dressed like a chicken:
20. Reunited At Last
The movie wouldn't be anything without the happy ending when Kevin is reunited with his family after his adventure.
