Quote "Hey, have I ever steered you wrong?"

"Scott Calvin: Why not? What if don't buy any of this Santa Clause thing? What if I choose not to believe it? [a dead silence falls upon the workshop] Bernard: Then there would be millions of disappointed children around the world. You see, children hold the spirit of Christmas within their hearts. You don't wanna be responsible for killing the spirit of Christmas, now would you...Santa?".
"What's all this boo-hooin' going on here?"
"Bernard: Excuse me. Are we on a coffee break?
Kid Elf: We don't drink coffee.
. Bernard: THEN I GUESS THE BREAK IS OVER! Back to work. Thanks. "
"In putting on the suit and entering the sleigh, the wearer waives any and all right to any previous identity, real or implied, and fully accepts the duties and responsibilities of Santa Claus, in perpetuity to which some time the wearer becomes unable to do so, by either accident or design."
"Hiya, sport!"
"Curtis, you need to tell Santa right now."

Bernard is an elf and one of the main protagonists from Disney's 1994 film The Santa Clause and its sequel. He was portrayed by David Krumholtz.


Bernard is a stickler for getting things done that are necessary. he can tend to be very grumpy, and less cheerful than the other elves, but he acts how he does to keep the other elves working. Being the head-elf (or, Arch-elf.) he has the responsibility of looking after the workshop and the other elves.
