[Norby and Veeko are cleaning Eddie up for accidentally fell off the building]
Veeko: You okay?
Norby: Eddie. When we first seen you fall, our first thoughts were with you and your family, should you not survive.
Veeko: I prayed, Eddie.
Eddie: Shut up!

Veeko: I worked at Burger King three years. This is worse than that.
Eddie: Don't blame me. We'd be resting easy if Butterfingers here hadn't lost the kid.
Norby: I lost the kid? I lost the kid?! Oh, well, that's news to me.
Eddie: Who putted himself to sleep reading the kid's nursery story?!
Norby: Who left the window open?!
Veeko: That was me.
Eddie: You idiots are why we don't got the kid. As far as I'm concerned, you can drop out and I'll keep the five million myself. Frankly, you don't deserve a penny!
Veeko: You'd stiff us?
Norby: Wait a minute! Wait a minute! Don't get hot, Eddie. Don't get hot. We're all just tired from getting torn apart.
Eddie: Oh, like I like to fall off buildings and jump in ditches! That's the breaks. We're dealing with a baby. Babies are obviously more dangerous than we thought.
Norby: It don't figure, Eddie. They're so small.
Eddie: When I boxed, the guys I most feared were those who feared nothing. Babies are like that, they ain't afraid of nothing. [they notice Bink's foot tracks] Baby tracks.

Bennington: [picking up the phone] Hello.
Joe Depke: Hello. Is this Mr. Cotwell?
Bennington: Yes. Who is this?
Joe Depke: My name's Depke. Joe. Joe Depke. Yeah. Listen, I might have some information on the whereabouts of that child.

Norm: I seen the baby.
Agent Dale Grissom: Where?
Norm: Right across the street on the curb.
Agent Dale Grissom: Where'd he go?
Norm: Where'd he go? It's the craziest thing, I don't remember.
Agent Dale Grissom: Maybe we'll take a ride. See if you remember then.
Bennington: Can I help? You want money? How much?
Norm: Don't embarrass me. Don't insult me. Please, your money's no good here. Put it away.
Bennington: Where's the baby?
Norm: House across the street. Second floor. McCrays. [sees Laraine, heads into McCrays' house] No guarantee! Listen, mister, I didn't know your kid! I just saw his picture on TV! I called because I care.

Mr. Andrews: Your name's McCray?
Mrs. McCray: Yeah. What did I do?
Mr. Andrews: We're looking for a missing child.
Mrs. McCray: These are my kids.
Mr. Andrews: Mind if we take a look? (he enters the room)
Agent Dale Grissom: Hello, ma'am.
Young Girl: [waves at Larine] Hi.
Mr. Andrews: Sir, in here.
[They head into another room, Larine discovers the same baby similar to Bink]
Laraine: Baby. [watches in him in happiness] You have a beautiful little boy.
Mrs. McCray: Thank you, ma'am. I'll pray he comes back to you. These kids are all I've got, so I know how I'd feel if I was in your place.
Laraine: I hope you never are, for your children's sake.
Agent Dale Grissom: Sorry, we inconvenienced you.
Bennington: Be there in a second. I'm sorry for the trouble.
Mrs. McCray: Sir? I believe in my heart that someone somewhere watches over the babies.
Bennington: Yes, I hope so.

Norby: Did a baby get off this bus?! A little guy, about two feet tall! It's an emergency!
Bus Driver: I didn't have nobody today with a baby.
Norby: He was by himself!

Veeko: [noticing Bink is on Ursala's purse] Some people.
Norby: Eddie, how could he get off?
Veeko: I seen him.
Both: What?!
Veeko: He's in the big broad's purse.

Cop 1: Have you guys seen a baby around here?
Eddie: The park is full of...babies.
Cop 2: Yeah, well, there's been a kidnapping.
Norby: Well, that's a crying shame. It's amazing what people will do for money.
Veeko: Yeah, for five million...
Eddie: If we see anything... [Baby Bink turns on the lighter] Excuse me. If we see anything, we'll be sure to notify... [absolutely moans]
Cop 2: He's got a bad heart.
Eddie: Excuse me. The police. Thank you.

Veeko: Hey, Eddie, maybe he went down a rabbit hole.
Eddie: We're serious about our work. You wanna make jokes? Join the circus.

[At the construction site, Eddie is stuck with a hook while holding on it]
Eddie: [calls for help] Norby! Veeko!
Veeko: Hey! We're down here!
Norby: Hey, Ed! We better go before I dry!
Veeko: Ed, can you see the baby from up there? Just hang on and we'll come on up. I got an idea.

Agent Dale Grissom: We got some news. I don't know if it's good, but it's not bad. Since the media broke the story, calls have come in. There was a report of a man looking for a baby on a bus this morning. A baby missing from a department store care center. Another, at three o'clock, at the zoo. Shortly after that, at a downtown park. And a final report not long ago at...
Gilbertine: A building under construction.
Agent Dale Grissom: Yeah, that's right.
Gilbertine: He's doing everything in the book. I know where he is. "Before returning home for supper, Nanny and Baby Boo stopped at the Old Soldiers' Home to visit Mr. Tinsel." That's where he is.

Bennington: You had quite an adventure today.
Baby Bink: Boo boo.
Bennington: Boo boo?
Gilbertine: It's what he calls his book. He lost it today.
Laraine: We'll get you another one, sweetheart.
Baby Bink: Boo boo!
Laraine: What? Oh, I see. That's nice.
Baby Bink: Boo boo.
Laraine: That's not a boo boo. That's a clock. A ticktock. Was there a ticktock in his book?
Gilbertine: No. Well, he's pointing to...His boo boo, he's not pointing at the ticktock, he's pointing to his boo boo, he wants his boo boo.
Grissom: I thought he was getting a new boo boo.
Laraine: He means his boo boo's back there, that's where he's been.
Grissom: Radio Rogers and McCloskey, tell them we're going to the ticktock to get the boo boo, and send for backup.

Norby: Hey, Eddie, you sure you don't wanna go check to see if they left the money?
Eddie: Oh, that's a good idea. We get the living hell tore out of us by a baby! Three fully grown men versus fifteen pounds of pink flesh with a mouth. Now, what chance have we got of strolling into that alley and coming out with anything less than one and forty years in prison?
Veeko: No way.
Eddie: No, thank you! This is a hexed situation. We walk away while we're still ahead.
Veeko: We took a licking and kept on ticking.
Eddie: We'll go back to banks. Dealing with grownups, I don't want no kiddy stuff.
Norby: We did all right with banks.
Veeko: Or a convenience store once in a while, keeps things interesting.
Eddie: [to Norby and Veeko] You know, I tell you one thing I learned from all this, I ain't never gonna have any kids of my own.
Norby: Yeah, seeing as you burnt down the only tree in your forest, I wouldn't worry about it.
Eddie: [about Bink] Why don't you shut up? I don't wanna ever hear another word about that rotten, snake-bit baby.

[Last lines]
Laraine: Good night, sweetheart.
Bennington: Good night, Bink.
[They turn off the lights and close the door]
Laraine: Did I tell you? The baby's having his picture taken tomorrow.
Bennington: Say hello to old Willy.
Laraine: I will.
[Bink wakes up, gets ready to read another book, this one entitled "Baby's Trip to China", much to his overjoy]
