"Look what you did, you little jerk! "
―Frank McCallister to Kevin[src]
Biography[edit | edit source]
Trip to Paris[edit | edit source]
Frank later retrieved pizza ordered by the family, but left the responsibility of paying for it to Peter. Later, while eating with the family, Kevin got into a fight with his brother, Buzz causing a giant mess in the kitchen, thus prompting Frank to call Kevin a "little jerk".
After the family managed to sleep in due to an electrical outage, Frank rushed along with them to the airport. On their flight, Frank attempted to smuggle glassware, but was caught at the last minute. Later, after it was realized that Kevin was forgotten at home, Frank attempted to comfort his sister-in-law, Kate, by saying that he forgot his reading glasses.
Later, at his brother Rob's Paris apartment, Frank found a shrimp appetizer and ignored his other sister-in-law Georgette's statements that the shrimp was to be saved for later. He asked Peter if he had gotten anybody to check on Kevin and Peter responded that no one was home for the holidays.
Trip to Florida[edit | edit source]
A year later, while preparing for the family's trip to Miami, Florida, he observed his son Fuller drinking a Coca-Cola, which he then took from him, saying, "Hey, hey, easy on the fluids, pal. The rubber sheets are packed", taking the soda for himself.
Later, as Frank was taking a shower, Kevin entered to get his tie, but after Frank found out that Kevin was in the bathroom too, he said "Get out of here, you nosy little pervert or I'm gonna slap you silly!"
At a Christmas pageant the McCallister children performed in, Frank laughed at Buzz placing candlesticks behind Kevin's ears during his solo, despite Leslie's efforts to get him to stop laughing.
After Kevin ruined the pageant by hitting Buzz, the older brother apologized, but Kevin refused, prompting Frank to say, "You better not wreck my trip, you little sourpuss. Your dad's paying good money for it." Kevin then called Frank "Mr. Cheapskate", much to his offense.
In Miami, he was the only McCallister to not pass the bag to Kevin, due to their argument the previous night.
Later, the family went to New York City to look for Kevin and spent their night in the Plaza Hotel. After hearing Buzz's speech of their good fortune for being allowed to stay in the luxurious hotel thanks to Kevin, Frank clapped for Kevin and said, "OK, Kevin! Alright! Merry Christmas!" and then he went to open the presents with the rest of the McCallisters.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Uncle Frank is grumpy, often looking on the negative side of things and arguing with his brother and sister-in-law.
He's also a bit cheap as seen when he took some champagne flutes on the flight to Paris.
