  • You don't give a monkey a latte!
  • Okay, fellows, last stop. Everybody off.
  • Who leaves eight open cans of paint lying around?
  • George, what did you do?
  • What am I doing? This isn't a movie, it's real!
  • Or, at least 10.
  • It's the same hat! And the same monkey! You followed me all the way from Africa? To play Peekaboo?
  • Junior was right. There is a parking problem in the city!
  • Do yourself a favor. You're gonna want to put the cucumbers back on.


  • Clovis: [seeing the three-inch idol] Ted, I'm not one to judge. But hasn't its size been exaggerated just a wee bit?
  • Cab Driver: There's no screaming in cabs!


Cab Driver: Where you going, Yellow?
Ted, The Man with the Yellow Hat: Bloomsberry Museum, please. I'll give you 10 bucks extra if you'll stop calling me Yellow.
Cab Driver: You got it, Sunshine.

[The kids start talking at once]
Maggie: Children...
Ted, The Man with the Yellow Hat: Okay, you know what? [sees the George Washington statue] His name's Washington.
Kid: Man, that's a dumb name!
Ted, The Man with the Yellow Hat: Then call him George! How's that? Happy now?
Maggie: Oh, I like George.

[Ted drives up to the docks]
Ted: [the boat with George in it is already leaving] Oh, no! I'm too late. Or am I? Luckily, movies have taught me exactly what to do in this situation. Kids, don't try this at home. [starts driving full speed toward the pier where the boat left] Here we go! [breaks through the pier gate and goes flying onto the boat] What am I doing? This isn't a movie. IT'S REAL!!! [the car splashes into a pool on the boat]

Bloomsberry: We'll be cutting through heavy brush for 12 hours a day.

Ted, The Man with the Yellow Hat: Please, just go! Do you understand?
[George grabs on Ted's leg]

Ted, The Man with the Yellow Hat: His "enormous idol" looks like it came out of a cereal box!
Junior: Wow, that must be a huge box of cereal, or...
Ted, The Man with the Yellow Hat: It's only 3 inches tall!

Clovis: I should hope so, because that is a lot of yellow for one man.
Ted, The Man with the Yellow Hat: You see it's... I thought you were color-blind.
Clovis: I can see that.

Miss Plushbottom: [singing operatically] Yoooou... aaaare... FIREEED!
Painter #1: Hey, she fired us in song.
Painter #2: It still hurts!

Mr. Bloomsberry: [to Junior] Nonsense. We promised the people something awe-inspiring, and we're giving it to them, thanks to Ted and George. [to Ted] I knew you wouldn't let me down.
Ted, The Man with the Yellow Hat: Well, sir, I've got to tell you, I came pretty close.
Mr. Bloomsberry: No, no, Ted, I am so proud of you. You're like the son I never had.
Junior: Father, I'm your son, remember?
Mr. Bloomsberry: Yes, but I had you. [to Ted] Ted, this is amazing.

Ivan: [with a thick Russian accent] If I find pet, you are "ewicted."
Ted, The Man with the Yellow Hat: E-what-ed?
Ivan: E-vic-ted!
