How the Grinch Stole Christmas
Transcript of How the Grinch Stole Christmas
#1 - Projection, The Grinch says this to Cindy Lou Who": What's the matter with you are you some sort of wild animal?" When he in fact is the one acting like a wild animal. He also projects the horrible aspects of his childhood on his two caregivers by pretending not to care about them, he says "You two are still alive?!?"
#2-Displacement, Displaces anger of nonacceptance of his childhood peers, on Christmas, when Christmas did nothing to the Grinch. He also displaces his anger for the Whos on other things, he says "Am I just eating because I'm bored?" When really he is feeling low because of Christmas.
#3-Denial, After being invited to the Whobilation, the Grinch claims he can't find the time to go, when he actually has absolutely nothing to do instead. The Grinch also states "I've got all the company I need right here." When he actually only has the company of Max.
#4-Sublimation, The Grinch hates Christmas because of his horrible childhood incident, so he takes his anger out on the Whos by physical activities of terror, for example causing a car accident, or mixing up all the mail. Also commits act of terror after the mayor reminds him of the childhood incident by giving him a razor. The Grinch also exhibited defense mechanisms near the end of the movie, he primarily used: projection, displacement, denial, rationalization.
#1 - Projection, He projects his the love in his heart on the Whos by singing a Christmas carol with them, (although he does not know the words). He also projects his newly arrived appreciation of morals by pretty much asking the police officer to take him to jail because of the crimes he has committed.
#2-Displacement, He displaces his new found love for Christmas on to Cindy Lou who and saves her.
#3-Regression, After the Mayor's possible fiance dumps him & chooses the Grinch instead, the Grinch reacts by laughing in the Mayor's face, like a little child would. He also asks if anyone would like a portion of the meat-type thing he is carving, then after someone points out that he or she would like to have it, the Grinch quickly states that it is his.
#4-Denial, when the Grinch's heart begins to grow, the Grinch does not want to admit it, he yells this to his dog: "MAX. HELP ME...I'm FEELING.
