Gnomeo & Juliet is a 2011 computer-animated family film. It is about two gnomes, the brave Gnomeo (James McAvoy) and the beautiful Juliet (Emily Blunt), who fall in love, only to discover that their "teams" are against each other and that their love must be a secret. Here is a list of quotes from the movie, by character.

An epic tale on a tiny scale. (taglines)

Gnomeo[edit]

  • [Practicing flirting with Juliet] Nice name. It really goes with your...eyes.
  • Well, I grabbed it first, but if you want it, come get it.
  • Who's your gnomie?
  • Well, this isn't my greenhouse.
  • Nice greenhouse, eh?
  • Tybalt, you just crossed the line!
  • [To Juliet, after she tells him to leave] I'm not going anywhere.

Juliet[edit]

  • [shouts] I'm not delicate!
  • "Who's your gnomie"? [grabs the flower] Who's your gnomie now?
  • [While Paris serenades her badly; sarcastically] Oh, my dad sure knows how to choose 'em.
  • I saw it first!
  • What's in a gnome?
  • Oh, Gnomeo, Gnomeo, are we really doomed to never see each other again? Why must you wear a blue hat? Why couldn't it be red like my father, or green like... like a leprechaun... or purple like, ummm, like some weird guy - I mean what's in a gnome? Because you are blue, my father sees red, and because I am red, I am feeling blue. Oh, at any rate that shouldn't be the thing to keep us apart, should it?

Benny[edit]

  • A cheat! A cheat, that's what you are!
  • [not seen, but voice heard] Well, you don't get much stealthier than this. [Camera turns to reveal Benny wearing a flower costume] Hello!
  • I love going Commando!
  • [After seeing Ms. Montague order the Kitten Clipper instead of the Terrafirminator] No! Not the Kitten Clipper!

Tybalt[edit]

  • Tell me something I don't already know.
  • We are going to track down whoever did it!
  • Oh, yeah? I crossed the finish line.
  • Thank you. (Cuts Benny's hat clean off)
  • What wall?
  • [last words] Oh, that wall. (Lawn mower crashes into the wall, smashing Tybalt to pieces)

Nanette[edit]

  • [when Juliet leaves for the flower] TAKE CARE! I'LL TELL YOUR DAD YOU'RE DOING YOUR HAIR!

Featherstone[edit]

  • I may not be a smart parrot, but I know what love is.
  • Oh, I'm sure scared!
  • Chocolate's in stranger, chocolate's in stranger...

Other[edit]

  • Dolly Gnome: Now, I know you know the rules and I don't have to repeat them, but I'm gonna 'cause I wanna, and here they are.
  • Bill Shakespeare: [Upon noticing the huge explosion in the background; smug] Told you so!

Dialogue[edit]

Lady Bluebury: [To Lord Redbrick; about his prized tulips] Your tulips are looking a little limp this year, aren't they?
Lord Redbrick: [Offended] Oh! I don't like what you're incinerating.
Lady Bluebury: The proper word is "insinuating", illiterate.
Lord Redbrick: [Angry] I am not illiterate! My parents were married!

Lord Redbrick: When will you realize you're delicate?
Juliet: [Turns and faces her father; angry] I'm not delicate! [kicks her plastic rose off her pedestal]
Lord Redbrick': [Walks away; annoyed] Stubborn girl.
Nanette: [Removes the rose from her mouth] She's definitely not delicate!

Fawn: You're the greatest boss, the greatest by far! (nudges the little red gnomes)
Little Red Gnomes: The greatest, the greatest by far.
Benny: A cheat, a cheat, that's what you are!
Little Red Gnomes: A cheat, a cheat, that's what you are! [Get kicked by Fawn]

[After Juliet returns to the Red Garden after meeting Gnomeo]
Nanette: What happened to that very important, life changing orchid?
Juliet: [Walking away] Um. Uh. Wha-What orchid?

Announcer: Are you losing the war in your garden? Well, brother, maybe it's time for a secret weapon: TERRAFIRMINATOR!!!

Juliet: Oh, Gnomeo, Gnomeo, are we really doomed to never see each other again? Why must you wear a blue hat? Why couldn't it be red like my father, or green like... like a leprechaun... or purple like, ummm, like some weird guy - I mean what's in a gnome? Because you are blue, my father sees red, and because I am red, I am feeling blue. Oh, at any rate that shouldn't be the thing to keep us apart, should it?
Gnomeo: No, no, it shouldn't! I couldn't have said it better myself!
Juliet: Oh, my giddy aunt, did you just hear all that? What are you doing here?
Gnomeo: I don't know! I just wanted to, uh [chuckles nervously], I just wanted to see you again!
Juliet: Are you crazy? If my dad finds you he'll bury you under the patio!
Gnomeo: 'Finds me', are you joking? 'Stealth' is my middle name!
[Steps on the button which sets off a display of bright lights]

Lord Redbrick: [About Gnomeo, who infiltrated the Red garden; angry] When I find him, he'll be sleeping with the fishes!
[Cut to Gnomeo and Shroom sitting at the bottom of the pond]

Fawn: [About Tybalt's well being vandalized by spray paint] Why would anyone ever do this to Tybalt?
Little Red Gnomes: Because nobody likes him.

Juliet: He's a blue.
Gnomeo: And she's a red.
Featherstone: And I'm pink! Who cares?

Fawn: [About Tybalt's well being vandalized by spray paint] Why would anyone ever do this to Tybalt?
Little Red Gnomes: Because nobody likes him.

[Juliet is worried someone may have heard the collapse of a log pile]
Gnomeo: [Whispering] There's nobody here.
Juliet: [Also whispering] Then why are you whispering?
Gnomeo: [Flirtatiously] Why are you whispering?
Juliet: [Giggles, then spots something behind Gnomeo; excited] Wow - look at that! [Runs towards it]
Gnomeo: [Disappointed] I guess we're finished with the whispering thing!

Announcer: TERRAFIRMINATOR!!! Are you losing the war in your garden?
Benny: Never!
Announcer: Well, brother, maybe it's time for a secret weapon!
Benny: Bring it on.
Announcer: TERRAFIRMINATOR!!!
Benny: This one's for Gnomeo! [selects the Terrafirminator]
Announcer: MEOW!!!

About Gnomeo & Juliet[edit]

  • Well, it wasn’t my idea, I wish I could claim it was. I got a phone call from my producer, Baker Bloodworth, about five years ago to the day [note: interview took place on January 21, 2011] and I was a huge Elton John fan growing up, so the first thing he said was, “Kelly, how would you like to direct an animated film that has music written by and is executive produced by Elton John?” That was the first thing, and I said, “Wow, tell me more.” He said, “Well, it’s an animated film about garden gnomes.” And I was like, “Wow! They haven’t done that yet!” Then he said, “And it’s Romeo and Juliet told with garden gnomes!” And I think there was a long pause, and I went, “Wow, I have to think about that one.”
  • Well, it was always Romeo and Juliet. The basic concept was the same, it just came down to where are we going to set it – Stratford-upon-Avon – the various characters. I watched the play, I watched Baz Luhrmann’s version a lot, I watched [Franco] Zeffirelli’s version. I saw all of the different interpretations of Romeo and Juliet and how they’ve been reinterpreted in different ways and the cleverness of some, and what I thought worked and what I thought didn’t. The specific changes I can’t really say, I just sort of started over and came up with this story that follows, really closely, the basic beats of the first two acts of Romeo and Juliet. There are obviously four acts in the play, we had three acts, but our third act is all about how are we going to change this ending. How do we keep daggers and poison and suicide out? And that was a challenge from the beginning. I think we answered that challenge and we had fun doing it.
  • Part of the fun of animation is not to be able to have carte blanche and do whatever you want, but really…Nanette moves very differently than Juliet. Juliet moves differently than Featherstone. Featherstone moves differently than Benny. All of the characters, depending on how their made – and, you know, Benny has his big, tall hat, he’s top heavy, so when he walks he has this little top-heaviness to him. All of those things are what the animators have the most fun with and it keeps the world real and it makes the audience relate to it. They can feel the weight of those characters and they can see the textures and they can smell that grass and that dewy morning with those flowers. All of that plays a part in the storytelling and therefore all of those elements are a character in the movie in their own way. That’s the best animation, that’s how it works, to me.
  • We had a lot of research. We realized that all gnomes have white beards, no matter how old they are – there are baby gnomes with white beards. Across the board. So our characters, all of our male characters, have a white beard, you’ll notice. Sometimes it’s trimmed, sometimes it’s small, but even in one scene there is a little baby and it’s got a white beard. The girl gnomes don’t have beards [laughs]. Juliet was a challenge. We wanted to make her appealing, we wanted to make her a little china doll on a pedestal, and there aren’t that many examples of female gnomes. Lady Blueberry is the more typical of the typical matronly, sort of older, white haired female gnome. So it was very difficult to make sure Juliet looked like a gnome, but we had to kind of invent what that was. The design process of an animated film is one of the joys because you fill a room with drawings by these amazingly talented artists that you have to choose from, and you end up with the best choice, hopefully, when you do it right. You don’t really have an excuse not to by the end because you have so many choices.
