Michael J. "Crocodile" Dundee[edit]

  • [to a New York driver] Get on the right side of the road you pelican!
  • No wonder you have so many accidents around here, the steering wheels on the wrong side of the car!
  • [sings in the bathtub] If I give my heart to you... [pause] then I'll have none and you'll have two.
  • [singing] Up North in the Never Never / Where the land is harsh and bare / Lives a mighty hunter named Mick Dundee / Who can dance like Fred Astaire!
  • Well, you see, Aborigines don't own the land. They belong to it. It's like their mother. See those rocks? Been standing there for 600 million years. Still be there when you and I are gone. So arguing over who owns them is like two fleas arguing over who owns the dog they live on.
  • It's for washing your backside, right?
  • [honks horn and yells to water buffalo] "Get out of the way dopey!"


Neville Bell: Oh no, you can't take my photograph.
Sue Charlton: Oh, I'm sorry, you believe it will take your spirit away.
Neville Bell: No, you got lens-cap on it.

Richard Mason: New York City, Mr. Dundee. Home to seven million people.
Michael J. "Crocodile" Dundee: That's incredible. Imagine seven million people all wanting to live together. Yeah, New York must be the friendliest place on earth.

Sue Charlton: That croc would have eaten me alive.
Michael J. "Crocodile" Dundee: Oh well, I wouldn't hold that against him. [The] thought crossed my mind once or twice.

[Dundee is threatened by a mugger with a switchblade ]
Sue Charlton: Mick, give him your wallet.
Michael J. "Crocodile" Dundee: What for?
Sue Charlton: He's got a knife.
Michael J. "Crocodile" Dundee: [chuckling] That's not a knife. [draws a large Bowie knife] That's a knife.
[Dundee slashes the teen mugger's jacket. He and his friends run away]
Michael J. "Crocodile" Dundee: Just kids having fun. You alright?
Sue Charlton: I'm always all right when I'm with you Dundee.
