But not all dogs stay there!

Charlie B. Barkin

  • [about to deliver food to his hungry puppy friends] These are some of the poorest people I know. They're broker than... the Ten Commandments. [laughs] Little joke. Very little.
  • What a selfish, callous cad of a heel I've been. Blind to the needs of our society's lowly unloved.
  • [while drunk] Hee-hee-hee-hee! You're the doggonest pals... a swell could ever have. [laughs] I love you, guys. You wanna sing with me? You wanna sing with me?

Itchy Itchiford

  • I can't help it, Charlie. I itch when I'm nervous!


  • You're not my friend. You're a bad dog!
  • Charlie? I have to go to the bathroom.


  • All dogs go to heaven, because, unlike people, dogs are naturally good, and loyal and kind.
  • [repeated line] can never come back...

Carface Carruthers

  • I do not wish that I should share 50% of the business with my partner, Charlie.
  • That is no way to treat an old friend. Friends must be handled in a friendly and business-like way!
  • So you see, Charlie, the story has a happy ending! I keep the girl and make a fortune and get to go to heaven! You don't wanna go to heaven, Charlie? [chuckles maliciously]


  • [while his ray gun is out of control] H-H-How do you stooooooop this thing?!

The Hellhound

  • You can never go back! Charliiiiie...
  • [in cut footage] Now, you are mine.


Charlie: Careful, Itchy.
Itchy: Yeah?
Charlie: Yeah. I think that might be a water main.
Itchy: Nah, Charlie. Water mains are green. This is red.
Charlie: You're colorblind. You always been colorblind!
Itchy: That's true, but this is green.
Charlie: It's red!
Itchy: Red?
[He drills into the water main; outside, water bursts out of the ground]
Man 2: Hit the lights!
Man 3: Call command central!

[Charlie has escaped the pound]
Smiley: Charlie? Ain't you s'pposed to be on death row?
Charlie: No! I ain't supposed to be on death row.
Itchy: Hey! I got him out.

Charlie: Carface! [laughs] Hey, Carface! Ya decent?
Carface: [opens the door] Charlie! Oh, is it really you?!
Charlie: Is it really me? Haha! Is it really you? Hey, you put on a little weight. I told ya to stay off those sweets. [lies down on a chair and turns on some jazz music] This place is... This place is lookin' okay. A little ghost, but okay. Y'know, partner, I'm proud of you. But the customers, they ain't laughin'.
Carface: [chuckles as he turns down the volume] Gamblers are never happy, Charlie. You know that.
Charlie: Yeah, but I've been thinkin'. [turns up the volume] You know what this place needs? I mean, besides new curtains and chandeliers. It needs some class, a little culture, choreography, and some influence of the theater. Dancing girls. Whattaya say? Y'know what else...?
Carface: [turns down the volume] Charlie, Charlie, Charlie. Times has changed. I've changed, you've changed.
Charlie: [turns up the volume] Ha, what are ya talkin' about? I haven't changed.
Carface: [turns down the volume] Charlie... Charlie, you've done time, and that's not good for business.
Charlie: [turns up the volume] What are you sayin'?
Carface: You are a dog with a record. [turns down the volume]
Charlie: [turns up the volume] I was framed!
Carface: I know that. [feigning tears] You're like a brother to me. That's why... Why...
Charlie: Why what?
Carface: [turns down the volume] We need to split up the partnership!
Charlie: [turns up the volume] What?! Are you outta your mind?!
Carface: They're gonna be lookin' for ya, Charlie. And what's the first place they're gonna look, huh?! Here! HERE!!! [removes the volume dial on the radio] I don't like it, Charlie, but it's for our own good.

[Killer tells Carface that Anne-Marie is gone while he's riding his model car]
Carface: WHAAAAAT?! [throws a lamp at Killer] WHAT DO YOU MEAN SHE IS GONE?!?
Killer: Well... y'see, Boss...
Carface: SHUT UP!!! CAN'T YOU JUST--- I--- AHH!!! [turns off the projector] MORONS!! I'M SURROUNDED BY MORONS!!! [pulls a lever, causing an engine to fall close to Killer]
Killer: AAAHHH!!! But, Boss, it wasn't my fault. I mean, to be perfectly honest, y'see... [Carface throws a horn at him; uses a hubcap as a shield] Thunder was on duty. Take it up with him.
Carface: I love that girl! I want her back... now!
Killer: Boss, y'see, thing is...

[at the horse corral]
Charlie: Anne-Marie, cupcake, sweetheart, please. Just talk to the horsey, huh? Talk to Mr. Horsey.
Itchy: Hey, boss, maybe she only talks to rats. [chuckles]
Charlie: Don't be stupid. She talked to me, didn't she?
Itchy: Yeah. She talked to you. That makes you a rat! [breaks into laughter]

[in the middle of the horse race, Stella Dallas gallops up to Sir Reginald]
Stella: Yoo-hoo! Reginald! Excuse me.
Reginald: Oh! [chuckles] Splendid! Hello, Stella! Jolly good day for a race, what?
Stella: [laughs] Oh, yes. But, Reginald, honey, I do hate to rain on your parade, but did you know, [furiously] It's the Grand Chawhee's birthday?!
Reginald: Oh, really? You don't... [monocle flies off; he goes awestruck] Oh! Terribly sorry.

[Killer hangs above a piranha-infested pool after Carface learns of Charlie's survival]
Carface: Charlie's alive, and I know he's got the girl. Killer, this is strike two. You're out.
Killer: No, wait boss! Boss! I get one more strike boss, honest!
Carface: [to his other thugs] Lower him. [Killer is lowered into the pool] Nothing personal, Killer. Business. You want something done right, you gotta do it yourself. How do I handle Charlie? Knives? Poison? Car didn't work. Something... something very special.
Killer: Boss, Boss! Pull me up, please! I got a... I got a gun!
Carface: A gun? Whattaya mean a gun? What kind of gun?
Killer: [the piranhas start nibbling at his ears] Ya hear me, Boss?! I got a gun! Stop, fishies! Stop it! Ooh, you won't like what you taste! [is raised up] I don't taste that good! You've been eating too much! Boss! Pull me up! I got a... I got a... I got a... A Flash Gordon Thermo-Atomic ray gun, Boss.
Carface: A ray gun. [chuckles evilly]

[an injured Itchy limps to the old church after getting beat up by Carface's goons]
Itchy: Charlie? Charlie? You here?
Charlie: Hey! Be quiet! Listen, Squeaker's sick and needs her sleep.
Itchy: Oh, you're breaking my heart. Maybe you want I should go upstairs and kiss her goodnight?
Charlie: Itch. Itch, what happened to ya?
Itchy: What happened to me? You wanna know what happened to me?
Charlie: Yes.
Itchy: I'll tell you what happened to me. Carface happened to me. With about fifty of his thugs!
Charlie: Oh, that dirty rat. I'm sorry, Itch. I really am sorry.
Itchy: Well, look what else happened while you was sidetracked. [they both look out the window to see Charlie's casino destroyed] See that? That's our place. You were gonna fix Carface. Well... well, he fixed us! You see, boss? It's gone too far. You wanted revenge on Carface, and I said, "No, please, let's get outta town." But I stayed because... because you're my friend. Then you wanted to kidnap the girl, and I said, "This is crazy!" But I helped ya. And then we gotta dress the girl and read her stories and she wants we should feed the poor, all the while I'm thinking, "This is stupid! She's gonna get us killed!" But I stayed because... I'm your friend. But tonight... tonight... Charlie, he tried to kill me! He tried to kill me, Charlie, and you was out gallivantin' with this... with this girl! I say we should lose the girl, get outta town, Charlie, you and me, then call it even.
Charlie: Oh, Itch. Now the casino's gone. We gotta start all over. We need the girl more than ever.
Itchy: No, boss, you're crazy. Oh, it's not business anymore. It's personal.
Charlie: Oh, come on, Itchy. Sure, it's just business. I mean...
Itchy: You're in love with the girl. You've gone soft. You care about her.
Charlie: [loses his temper] Look, I don't care about the girl! I tell her things now and then. I pretend to be her best friend, but it's bologna!
Itchy: I thought I was your best friend.
Charlie: You are my best friend! With her, it's just business! It's always been business! I'm usin' the girl! And when we're done with her, we'll dump her in an orphanage! Is that okay with you?!
Itchy: Sure, boss. Anything you say. [sees Anne-Marie overhearing them] Uh-oh.
[they both turn around to see Anne-Marie crying]
Anne-Marie: You're not my friend. You're a bad dog! [runs out of the church]
Charlie: Squeaker. Anne-Marie! Squeaker! [tries to follow Anne-Marie but loses her; he sees her stuffed animal and hears a scream] Carface! Anne-Marie!

[At the end of the film]
Carface: [roars] I'll get that gator if it's the last thing I do!
Annabelle: Touch that clock, and you can never come back.
Carface: Shut up!
Annabelle: I said, touch that clock, and you can never come back!
Charlie: [to the home audience] He'll be back. [winks]
