Little Nero’s Pizza Delivery Guy from Home Alone

“Keep the change ya filthy animal!” The unnamed Little Nero’s Pizza Delivery Guy is a minor character in the movie Home Alone. Kevin McCallister orders from Little Nero’s Pizza, a (fake) pizza parlor in Chicago. He uses clips from an old Hollywood movie to converse with the delivery boy, giving off the impression that he’s an adult. When the delivery boy asks for a tip, Kevin speeds up the movie to a gun scene. Believing the gunshots are real, the delivery boy sprints away. This cleverness makes pizza delivery scene one the most famous in the movie, and a similar scene occurs again in Home Alone 2.
