Dialogue[edit]

[first lines]
Mother: [car honking] Car's here!
Father: It's 9:00 already! We're going to miss our flight!
Mother: Traveller's checks, passports.
Father: You have the tickets, darling?
Mother: Tabitha, did you feed Roddy?
Tabitha: Oops.
Mother: [off-screen] I know we've forgotten something. I just know we've forgotten something!
Tabitha: Roddy, where are you? [spilling in food] We'll be back in a few days, so here's enough food for you. Here's a little more.
Mother: [off-screen] Tabitha!
Tabitha: Here's a little more.
Mother: [off-screen] I hope you're not overfeeding him.
Tabitha: Of course not, Mum. (Dumps the whole bag of rat feed into Roddy's 'house')
Father: [off-screen] Come on, Tabitha!
Tabitha: Bye, Roddy!
Father: [off-screen] We don't want to miss our holiday.
Tabitha: I'm coming, I'm coming! [runs out of the house and closes the door]
Roddy: [sniffing] When the cat's away, the mice will play! The holiday starts now, everyone! Music, maestro. [presses a button on a radio and "Dancing with Myself" plays]

Toad: Perhaps you forget that it was a rat who cast me from paradise!
Le Frog: [Rolling his eyes] Oh please not the scrapbook again.
Toad: [pulls a book off a shelf] My memoirs. Volume one details the dire and tragic story of my youth.
Le Frog: Oh mon dieu.
Toad: Of all the pets in Buckingham Palace, young Prince Charles fancied me the best. We would frolic day after sunny day in royal abandon sharing that sweet and magical bond between boy and toad.
Le Frog: You're going to make me throw up.
Toad: We were inseparable until... it arrived. That rat! While the poor boy's head was turned, I was cruelly plunged into a whirlpool of despair. [begins to cry]
Le Frog: I know, I know. You were flushed away down the loo right? [drinks some wine, then spits it out. Exclaims in disgust after reading the label British Bliss Wine] Boo hoo hoo, it is so dark, so cold, so terrible. [chuckles]
Toad: You find my pain funny?
Le Frog: I find everyone's pain funny but my own. I'm French. [chuckles nervously]
Toad: [stands up and knocks over a table] Just get the cable!

I'm frightened. Stop it, stop it, stop it! All right, Roddy, old man, you can get yourself out of here, and you will. Never forget, the blood of the courageous James clan flows through your veins.

Liam: He's gonna steal your boat.
Rita: He won't steal my boat.
Liam: He's stealing your boat.
Rita: He isn't stealing...
Liam: He stole your boat.
Rita: What?
Liam: He's like Robin Hood in reverse.

Roddy: Whatever's going on, I assure you, I'm not involved. I'm just an innocent bystander.
Spike: Rita, Rita, Rita. [laughing] Thought you could give us the slip? [Slips and falls] What are you looking at? Keep still! Come on, then! Right! Who have we got here?
Whitey: I believe he said his name was Millicent Bystander.

Rita: Tell me about yourself, Roddy.
Roddy: Well, there's not much to tell.
Rita: You know everything about me, warts and all. I don't even know what you do.
Roddy: I'm... I'm in a boy band.
Rita: What?
Roddy: Yeah. Yeah, I'm the posh one.

Roddy: Will you please tell these people I'm not involved in this?
Rita: Fine. All right, all right, listen up. This gentleman, he's not from around here.
Roddy: Thank you.
Rita: Just look how nicely he's dressed.
Roddy: Ah, thank you.
Rita: And why? Because he's an international jewel thief!
Roddy: Precisely... What? No! No, no!

Le Frog: We leave immediately!
Henchfrog: What about dinner?
Le Frog: We leave... in 5 hours.

Spike: Blimy, it's cold.
Whitey: That's why I wore me mittens.
Spike: Wha... Hitmen don't wear mittens! Take them off! You're embarrassin' me!
Whitey: It's alright for you. You've got little hands. They don't freeze as much.

Rita: What are you, some kind of rat boomerang?! Give me back my ruby!
Roddy: I haven't got your ruby! [the ruby falls on Roddy's hand, Rita gasps] Okay. Well, now I've got your ruby. Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah!
Rita: Please be careful! That ruby means a lot to me. It's priceless!
Roddy: Hold on... [looks at the ruby] It's a fake.
Rita: Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha! No, it's blooming not. It's real!
Roddy: No, no, no, look. It's..it’s..it's just glass. It's fake.
Rita: It's real! No, it's not guilty!
Roddy: Fake.
Rita: Real!
Roddy: Fake.
Rita: Real!
Roddy: Fake. [short pauses]
Rita: Real!
Roddy: Fake.
Rita: Real!
Roddy: Fake.
Rita: Real!
Roddy: Fake.
Rita: Real!
Roddy: Fake.
Rita: Real!
Roddy: Fake.
Rita: Real!
Roddy: Fake.
Rita: Real!
Roddy: Look, look, look, look, look, look, look, look, look, look, look. You can tell. Watch this. [breaks the ruby; Rita gasps in shock, as they watch the ruby pieces sink in the water] There, you see? I mean, you can't break a real ruby. [Rita growls furiously as she looks at him] Ah, right. I probably shouldn't have done that, but look on the bright side, I saved your neck. I mean, once the Toad knows it's worthless, he'll stop chasing you for it. Roddy St. James saves the day! [Rita punches him, and he tumbles into the bottom of the boat] Good grief!

Toad: Where are those idiots? [to his tadpoles] It's so hard to get hope these days, my boys. Yes, that's right. [The Toad speaks in a baby voice] Oh, come on out, my lovelies. Cheer your old dad up. Poor Daddy, surrounded by flithy rats in this joyless, sunless void! But don't worry, my little men. Daddy will get rid of them all! He will. They'll all be deady-weady. [The Toad kisses the jar, and his tadpoles hug their daddy from inside. Spike and Whitey arrive. The Toad hides his jar, but still has his baby voice.] Did you find it?
Spike: Eh?
Toad: [snaps out of it] Ah, no! Did you find it?
Spike: Well, we got most of it, boss. [he and Whitey show the toad pieces of the ruby. The Toad slaps it out of their hands]
Toad: Forget the ruby! It's the master cable that I want. The one that grubby creature Rita took.
Spike and Whitey: Oh, no!
Toad: Without it, my plan is ruined!
Spike: Okay, chief. Forget the ruby. Ruby's gone. See? See? Moving on. We are now your cable guys.
Whitey: Focused. Cable-centric, boss.
Toad: You need to be back in time for the World Cup Final.
Spike: Oh, great! Are we watching the game together, boss?
[the toad grows angry; cut to outside his office; Spike and Whitey get thrown through a glass window]
Toad: Just get the cable!
[Spike screams]
Whitey: Keep your legs straight!

Priest: You may now kiss the bride.

Whitey: Are you sure about this, Spike? These things are dangerous.
Spike: Danger is my middle name!
Whitey: I thought it was Lesley.

Le Frog: OK men. To action!
Henchfrogs: We Surrender!
Le Frog: NO! Not that one, you idiots! The kung-fu thing!

Whitey: Oh, I love a happy ending.
Spike: Oh, you've gone soft. I like unhappy endings, with lots of violence.
[A champagne bottle hits away Spike and press him against the wall]
Whitey: Are you happy now, Spike?

[last lines]
Tabitha: Roddy! I'm home! [Sid gasps] I brought you a new friend!
[she holds up a cat]
Sid: [screaming]

Spike: Daddy, he's getting away. Do something.
