- Lola: [wearing a set of self-made stilts] Measure me now, Charlie.
- Charlie: Lola, the people who run the super duper loop-the-looper will know you're cheating. You'll just have to wait and see if you're big enough.
- Charlie: Okay, imagine if we really did change places.
- Lola: Hmm... I have this little brother, Charlie. He is small... and very funny. Sometimes I have to keep an eye on him.
- Charlie: Ooh, ooh, ooh. Can I have some pink milk now, please?

My Little Town [1.25]
- Charlie: You can build buildings and roads and it's called "My Little Town".

- Lola: I know! I know! But it's our little town, isn't it?

- Lola: Dogs don't eat flowers.
- Charlie: They do in my little town.
- Charlie: Why aren't you playing "Our Little Town", Lola?

But I Am an Alligator [1.26]

- Marv: Mum! Mum! Sizzles has found your handbag!
- Lola: You're a completely good dog, Sizzles.
- Charlie: Well done, Sizzles.
- Marv: Even though you messed up the whole house. It was worth it because you found Mom's handbag.
Do Not Ever Never Let Go [3.6]
- Marv: You'll be much faster on a real bike, Lola.
- Lola: No, Marv. I really like my trike. It is exactly almost nearly like Lotta's trike and it goes exactly as fastest as her trike, so we can tricycle along together at the same exact time.
- Lotta: Dad took my stabilizers off.
- [Lola gasps and moans]
- Lotta: It's really easy, Lola.
- Lola: Are you holding on, Charlie?
- Charlie: Yes, Lola.
- Lola: [moans] Oh, too fast, too fast, too fast. TOO FAST!
- Lola: [panicking] WHERE ARE THE BRAKES!? WHERE ARE THE BRAKES!?
- Lola: You let go. You promised you wouldn't let go.
- Charlie: Maybe you should put the stabilizers back on.
Our Shop Sells Everything [3.7]
- Charlie: Today, Lola is playing shops with her friend, Lotta.
- Lotta: Sorry, customer. There are no biscuits.
- Lola: Lotta, we definitely have biscuits in our shop.
- Lotta: Well, we did, but doing shops makes you very nibbly, Lola.
- Lola: Lotta!
- Lotta: I would like to be a fairy, please.
- Lola: [whispering] I don't think we have a fairy, Lotta.
- Lotta: Oh.
- Lola: Oh, wait! Actually, we do have one.
- Lotta: Fairies are very difficult customers.
- Lola: Yes. I hope no more fairies go buying in our shop.
- Lotta: [recommending an item to Morton] What about this?
- Lola: Lotta, all the pictures are all colored in.
- Lotta: But is is really good coloring, Lola.
- Charlie: Have fun with your shop.
- Lola: It's not our shop, anymore. It's Morton's shop now.
I Am Inventing a Usefullish Invention [3.8]
- Lola: What are you reading?
- Charlie: It's a book about invention.
- Lola: Hmm.
- Lola: I can. I can invent something. You'll see.
- Lola: Charlie!
- Charlie: What is it?
- Lola: I am an actual inventor.
- Lola: So am I really, completely an inventor?
- Marv: You are. You are an actual, factual inventor, Lola.
But We Always Do It Like This [3.9]
- Charlie: Today, Lola can't wait. Because we're going to Granny and Grandpa's.
- Lola: And Granny and Grandpa live at the seaside. And you know what we do at Granny and Grandpa's?
- Charlie: Uh... eat ice cream?
- Lola: Pat, pat, pat...
- Charlie: Jump in the water?
- Clem: Shells! [places them on sandcastle haphazardly]
- Lola: No! Not wonky! All straight! Charlie, I don't think it's a very good idea to let Clem do helping, 'cause we always do it together and she's going to spoil it.
- Charlie: A whole sand city.
- Luke: It's amazing.
- Lola: Let's get grandpa to take a picture of all of us and the crab and the city.
I Can't Stop Hiccuping! [3.10]
- Charlie: Oh, Lola, you've given yourself the hiccups.
- Lola: [hiccups] I can't... [hiccups] ...help it.
- Lotta: Do you like my tower, Lola.
- Lola: Hmm.
- [Lola hiccups, knocking the tower down]
- Lotta: You hiccuped down my tower.
- Lola: Sorry, Lotta. It was an accident.
- Charlie: How did they start?
- Lola: [hiccups] Lotta made me laugh. [hiccups]
- Charlie: Hmm, I'll tell you what. Why don't you two try to make laugh, so that I could catch your hiccups? If I catch them, then you won't have them anymore. See?
I Am Completely Hearing and Also Listening [3.11]
- Lola: [as Elephant] He's very big, isn't he? [giggles; as herself] Look, it's a puppet. Did you think it was really an elephant, Charlie?
- Charlie: Lola, I don't think you were listening.
- Lola: Yes, I was, Charlie. But Elephant is an actual puppet, and he knows all about puppet theaters, so he told me exactly just where to glue it.
- Charlie: But you've left a piece out.
- Charlie: You didn't listen. You never listen.
- Lola: I do, Charlie. I am absolutely hearing and also listening.
- Charlie: What time are we supposed to get there, Lola?
- Lola: Hmm. 5 o'clock. Yes. 5 o'clock. That's what Arnold said.
- Lola: But you said 5 o'clock.
- Arnold: No. You couldn't have listened properly. I said come early for teatime. And then your Mum and Dad to pick you up at 5 o'clock. Everyone's gone.
- Lola: Sometimes I don't think I always listen very hard enough.
- Charlie: That's true, Lola. But I know you can.
But I Don't Really Like This Present [3.12]
- Lola: Charlie! [whining] Charlie!
- Charlie: What is it, Lola? [notices the garishly colorful hat Lotta got for Lola] Oh.
- Lola: I don't want my present from Lotta.
- Charlie: It's very, um, bright. What don't you like about it?
- Lola: But I don't like it, Charlie. And I don't want to wear it.
- Charlie: Don't you think Lola will be a bit sad. You did tell her you'd wear it all the time.
- Lola: But I really, absolutely don't like it.
- Lotta: I can't wait to show everyone at school the beautiful bracelet you got me from holiday, Lola. You will wear your hart to school too, won't you?
- Lola: Oh, yes, yes, I'll wear it tomorrow. Bye, then.
I Can Dance Like a Dancer [3.13]
- Lola: Country dancing makes me a bit dizzy and I don't think it's my favorite.
- Lola: I'm an ever-so-good dancer. Look. This is my drinking-pink-milk dance. [blows bubbles, taps and giggles]
- Lotta: I do ballet dance after school. You can come over for a try.
- Lola: I like ballet, but it's too floaty for me. And tap dancing's good, but it's too shuffly and not enough tapping. I don't think I'm ever going to be a good dancerer.
Help! I Really Mean It! [3.14]
- Lotta: Hello, Caspar the cat.
- Lola: You can come in, Lotta, but you just have to open the door a tiny bit. It's called "Caspar's not allowed out, or he might run away."
- Lola: Did you know, Lotta, that Caspar was actually a tiger?
- Lotta: Yes, a tiger.
- Lola: Caspar, where are you?
- Charlie: You haven't lost him, have you?
- Lola: No, he just didn't really want to ride in my pram.
- Lola: HELP, CHARLIE, HELP!
- Lotta: Why isn't Charlie coming, Lola?
- Lola and Lotta: HELP!!!
- Lola: [sniffles] I told you I need you, Charlie!
- Charlie: But I didn't believe you because you keep shouting "help" when you don't mean it.
- Lola and Lotta: Sorry, Charlie and Marv.
I Would Like to Actually Keep It [3.15]
- Charlie: Lola, who are you talking to?
- Lola: Foxy, of course. [as Foxy] Hello, Charlie.
- Charlie: What's the matter, Lola?
- Lola: Well, I'm worrying about the rabbit. He's still there.
- Lotta: Hello, Charlie, it's Lotta. Has anybody rung about Rabbit yet?
- Charlie: No, not yet.
- Lola: Lotta, you have to get off the telephone. Somebody might be calling.
- Lotta: Oops, sorry. Bye.
- Lola: Rabbit is actually a very fast and very clever rabbit. I don't know why somebody hasn't called for him.
- Charlie: [regarding about the stuffed rabbit's owner] Well done, Lola. He was really happy.
- Lola: Yes! He was really happy because I looked after his rabbit really well.
It's Raining, It's Boring [3.16]
- Charlie: Today, Lola's excited because mum and dad are going out, so we're going 'round to Marv's.
- Lola: No, we're going over to the park to play with Sizzles all day long.
- Lola: I don't like it when it rains.
- Charlie: It's not that bad, Lola.
- Marv: What's this?
- Lola and Charlie: What does it say?
- Marv: [reading] "Is it raining?"
- Charlie: Yes.
- Marv: "Are you really bored?"
- Lola: Yes!
- Marv: "Well, open this box and you won't be bored anymore."
- Lola: Open the box! Open the box!
- Lola: I don't like these rainy day games. You said it was going to be fun, but it wasn't. I'm going to play with Sizzles.
- Charlie: We didn't finish the rain race in time.
- Marv: But we did find an even better game for the rainy day box.
- Charlie: Yeah. Lola's story game.
I am Goody the Good [3.17]
- Charlie: At the moment, Lola's absolute favorite books are all about a girl called Goody.
- Lola: Goody the Good, Charlie.
- Charlie: Sorry, Lola. Goody the Good.
- Lola: She helps a turtle to get teh right way up again.
- Goody: Happy to help.
- Lola: Happy to help. Happy to help.
- Lola: To beat Marv, you must do lots of eating to be big and strong. So I'll help you to choose some grapes.
- Charlie: Um, thanks Goody. Mmm.
- Lola: Happy to help.
- Charlie: Why did you eat my broccoli?
- Lola: Certainly, I was helping you, Charlie, because you don't like broccoli.
- Charlie: I love broccoli, Lola.
- Lola: I was only being helpful, like Goody.
- Charlie: You've ruined my mountains!
- Lola: It's not ruined, Charlie. If you look at it like this, it looks actual wet snowy.
What Can I Wear for Halloween? [3.18]
- Charlie: Tomorrow night is Halloween.
- Lola: Whoo! Whoo!
- Charlie: So there's going to be a special party at school. We've all got to wear Halloween costumes.
- Lola: Are you going to dress up, Charlie?
- Charlie: I am dressed up, Lola. I'm a wizard!
- Lola: I knew everyone would be going as a wicked witch.
- Lotta: Not me. I'm going as a wiggly, hairy monster with eyes that are all woggly wobbly.
- Charlie: That is actually the biggest pumpkin I've ever seen.
- Lola: It is as big and orangey as the sun.
- Lotta: Mmm. And when my dad does the face, it's gonna be the best pumpkin lantern in the whole of Halloween.
- Lola: Yes!
- Lola: [sighs] I still don't know what to go as, Charlie.
- Charlie: Uh, why don't you dress up as a... wolf?
- Lola: Unh unh. Arnold Wolf is going as a wolf.
- Charlie: What about a deep sea monster that's all made out of seaweed?
- Lola: Blah! Too slimy!
- Marv: Still no idea what to dress up as, Lola?
- Lola: I can't think of anything extremely scary, Marv.
- Charlie: I told you, Lola. It doesn't have to be scary.
- Marv: Yes, it does. It has to be totally terrifying.
- Charlie: It doesn't have to be scary. It'd just better be quick. It's not long until the party.
- Charlie: Are you ready?
- Lola: [giggles] Yes, Charlie.
- Charlie: Okay, everyone. Behold our very own Halloween pumpkin! The biggest, orangiest pumpkin in the whole of Halloween!
But Marv is Absolutely Charlie's Best Friend [3.19]
- Marv: I wish we could watch Pirate Squidbones all day.
- Charlie: So do I. [imitating Squidbones] You good-for-nothing jellyguts!
- Marv: [also imitating Squidbones] Not as much as I do, you wretched limpet!
- Lola: [having overheard part of Charlie and Marv's fake Squidbones argument] I have ever, never heard Charlie and Marv be cross before, ever.
- Lotta: Maybe we should get Charlie and Marv to do a making-up card.
- Lola: Oh no. Marv's got a new best friend.
- Marv: These biscuits are the best.
- Jack: They're my best, too. You like all the same things I do.
- Lotta: [whispering] They're definitely best friends because they like the same biscuits.
- Marv: [on the telephone] Just tell Charlie he's a mean jellyguts.
- [Lola gasps]
- Marv: Bye, Lola.
- Lola: Oh.
- Lotta: Don't tell Charlie he's a mean jellyguts.
- Lola: Oh no, I won't.
- Charlie: [regarding about himself and Marv] Oh, Lola, we're the best friends ever.
- Marv: [chuckles] Lola.
- Charlie: We've just been playing Squidbones.
I Am Making a Craze [3.20]
- Lola: Would you like to do some real, actual skipping now?
- Lotta: No, because I have to practice my hulie-skipping.
- Lola: Oh. What about hide and seek?
- Lotta: No thank you.
- Charlie: Hi, Lola. Why aren't you playing with your hulie-hoop?
- Lola: Why is everyone doing hulie-hooping and not anything but hulie-hooping?
- Charlie: Because it's a craze, Lola.
- Lola: How long does a craze go on for, Charlie?
- Charlie: Until the next craze comes along.
- Charlie: What are you doing, Lola?
- Lola: I'm making a craze, Charlie.
- Lola: You can even play cuppy catch ball with two people. That's called "twosies."
- Charlie: Hey, Lotta.
- Lotta: If we did it with our eyes closed, we could call it "sleeping twosies." [throws the ball with her eyes closed, but it doesn't come anywhere close to the cup] Oh.
- Charlie: Or "dropsies."
But Where Completely Are We? [3.21]
- Lola: I would quite like to be an explorer. Why don't we go now?
- Charlie: All the exploring places are really far away and you have to take water and food for surviving.
- Lola: We can do that.
- Lola: Mum gave me some raisins in case we get really hungry out in the wild. And dad said he'll come down if we need some help with the tent.
- Charlie: We won't need any help, Lola, because we're explorers.
- Lola: I know. Where are we going?
- Charlie: We're going through blizzards and tropical rain.
- Lola: And jump over biggish rocks.
- Charlie: We may even have to wade through rivers. But we'll keep on going and going until we get there.
- Charlie: We can't just go back home every time you want something.
- Lola: Can't we?
- Charlie: No. That's cheating. We're in a wild and faraway place, remember? And we have to find our own food.
- Charlie: [popping out of a bush] Lola, it's me!
- Lola: Oh! I thought you were a tiger!
- Charlie: Sorry, Lola. I was just foraging for food in the bush.
- Lola: I definitely don't like explorer camping. It's wet and it's cold. I don't like it! Please. [sniffles] Can we just go inside, please?
- Charlie: Day one-- talked to a parrot and saw... 23 orangutans. Lola, when are you going to tidy your side of the camp?
- Lola: Not now, Charlie.
- Charlie: Where are you going?
- Lola: Foraging.
- Charlie: Foraging for what? Giant coconuts?
- Lola: No. Cheese, from the fridge.
I Really, Really Need Actual Ice Skates [3.22]
- Lola: Hi, Morton!
- Morton: I'm a very good scooterer.
- Marv: But not a very good stopperer. You'd better take it inside, Morton.
- Lotta: I love ice skating!
- Morton: So do I.
- Lola: So do I.
- Charlie: Lola's never been ice skating before.
- Marv: Neither has Morton.
- Lola: You know, Charlie, I really do think I absolutely and extremely must have my own skates.
- Charlie: But we're getting the scooters tomorrow with dad.
- Lola: I'm going to have real ice skates instead of the scooter, Charlie, because then I will be a very good and very twirylish ice skater.
- Lola: Dad said I must be very, very good and promise not to change my mind and that he doesn't want to find my skates in the bottom of the cupboard.
- Charlie: Mmm.
I Am Going to Save a Panda [3.23]
- Lotta: And we can save the... giraffes.
- Marv: Giraffes?
- Lola: Yes. 'Cause sometimes, because they're so tall, giraffes get their heads stuck in the clouds.
- Lotta: Oh-no!
- Charlie: We're helping the endangered animals by raising money for them.
- Lola: Are we going to buy them a present?
- Lola: I think I would like to save a panda.
- Lotta: YES, YES, YES!
- Charlie: Okay. Let's save the pandas.
- Lola: You know, Charlie, I'm definitely going to save a giant panda tomorrow because I can hop forever. Hop!
I've Got Nobody to Play With [3.24]
- Lola: [talking on the telephone] Hello? Oh, hello, Lotta's mum. Lotta has a cold? But she could still come, though. Oh. But I like germs. Okay. Bye, Lotta's mum.
- Lola: And now I was wondering if you would like maybe to come upstairs and do some coloring with me.
- Morton: Oh, no! I can't, Lola. I've got to go to the vet with my mum. She says Sizzles has got bad breath.
- [Sizzles barks]
- Lola and Morton: EWW!
- Morton: It's smelly. Sorry.
- Lola: Where are you hiding?
- Soren Lorenson: I'm in the cave. Can't you see me?
- Lola: Of course I can see you, Soren Lorenson! Come out. We've got a very big mountain to climb, made out of pillows.
- Charlie: Aw. A magic forest in our bedroom. Can I play?
- Lola: Well... okay.
It is Very Special and Extremely Ancient [3.25]
- Lola: That's a stone, Charlie. A brown stone.
- Charlie: It's very, very amazing and special.
- Lola: Is it a very special stone from the garden?
- Charlie: No, Lola. This stone is ancient. It's really, really, really old.
- Lola: Did it come from Granny's garden? Granny's very, very old. She's older than even 25.
- Lola: So how did a fosskil get into the stone?
- Charlie: Fossil, Lola.
- Lotta: Lola, do you think we can start a fossil collection together, you and me?
- Lola: Yes, Lotta. i think that is an extremely and good idea.
- Lotta: So do I.
- Lotta: A fossil of a...
- Lola: ..fish!
- Lotta: Yes! A very old, swimmy fish.
- Charlie: It's an ice-lolly stick, Lola.
I Wish I Could Do That And Also That Too [3.26]
- Charlie: Lola is really excited because...
- Lola: My friend from school is coming to play.
- Charlie: Not Lotta?
- Lola: No, not Lotta. Someone completely else, who's never come to tea before.
- Mini: A skipping rope made of lovely and pretty beads.
- Lola: Ooh.
- Mini: You know, Lola, only actual queens skip with skipping ropes made out of beads.
- Lola: Lotta will love our queen skipping rope made all out of beads.
- Mini: We can show her at school.
- Lola: Okay, what about "Sorry, I can't come to your house for tea 'cause my fish is ever so not well."
- Lotta: But you don't have a fish, Lola.
- Mini: You were invited to a real space party?! Why didn't you go?
- Lola: Because if I went to Marv's party, I wouldn't be here and I wouldn't be able to do beads with you.
- Mini: Oh. Marv's having a real space party, but you still came here to my house. Thank you, Lola.
- Lola: I know! Let's do our own space party! And beads... let's do space beads!
How Many More Minutes Until Christmas?
- Lola: [gasps] The horse with twigs on his head!
- Charlie: [giggles] That's a reindeer, Lola.
- Charlie: [regarding about Father Christmas] Oh, and he always brings a tangerine.
- Lola: Why does he always bring a tangerine?
- Charlie: I don't know. 'Cause they are really boring.
- Lola: [showing Charlie a Christmas card] That is my card for Lotta.
- Charlie: That's really nice, Lola. What is it?
- Lola: It's "Away in a Manger" with Baby Jesus. Lotta really likes that song, especially the bit where the cattle are lowing. Uh... What is lowing, Charlie?
- Charlie: It's like mooing.
- Lola: Oh, Charlie, I'm very excited! We can post our letter to Father Christmas on our way to school tomorrow!
- Lola: [as the telephone rings] Ooh. That might be Father Christmas, to tell me he's got my letter.
- [Charlie giggles]
- Lola: How many more minutes until Christmas?
- Charlie: Just time for some Christmas carols and then tomorrow it will be Christmas.
- [Lola giggles]
- Lola: I told Mom all about the sky paper and how we saved Christmas, Charlie, and she said were very extremely clever.
Everything is Different and Not the Same
- Lola: Everything needs to be exactly, extremely right going back to school.
- Charlie: [teaching Lola how to tie a shoelace] Over the top and down below, make a loop and away you go.
- Lola: What's a conker?
- Marv: You know what a conker is, Lola.
- Lola: Mmm-mnh.
- Marv: Conkers are the best thing that happen in autumn or maybe they're the best thing all year.
- Lotta: Our new desk is funny.
- Lola: It even smells funny.
- Lola: [sighs wearily] My new tights keep crinkling. I like my old tights. Ugh. And my shoelace has come undone. It's all because of autumn. Everything is different and not the same.
- Lola: Autumn is going all wrong. Everything is different and not the same.
- Charlie: Why won't you come out?
- Lola: We're hidinggating.
- Charlie: Why are you hibernating, Lola? Only animals are supposed to do that.
- Lola: Lotta and I are not coming out until spring.
- Lotta: Yep.
- Lola: Everything is different and wrong in autumn, Charlie.
- Lola: Where's your itchy scarf, Lotta?
- Lotta: [whispers] Don't tell anyone, but I hid it in the time capsule.
- Lola: ♪ Autumn, autumn, autumn! ♪
- Charlie: I thought you didn't like autumn because everything changes!
- Lola: I changed my mind!
