The greatest hero ever assembled.(taglines)

John Brown/Inspector Gadget[edit]

  • I'm not me anymore. I'm a hardware store!
  • Hey, that guy's speeding. Ten miles per hour in a parking lot, buddy!
  • You're under arrest for murder and robbery. (To RoboGadget) And you are under arrest for impersonating a police officer.

Sanford Scolex/Dr. Claw[edit]

  • Sykes, release the remote control robots, now.
  • (Before killing Brenda's father) Arrivederci, professor. (Kills him)
  • Sniffy, let's go.
  • Stop the car, Sykes. I want to enjoy this.
  • You crushed my hand, and I love that hand.
  • Well, if it isn't that annoying security guard from the incident.
  • Arrivederci, Gadget! This is not goodbye. I'll get you next time, Gadget! I'll get you!


  • Say bye-bye to the rookie.
  • Buckle up, Penny, and put some newspaper under that dog. This baby (referring to himself) has only two speeds: "Fast" and "WOW! What was that!?"

Sore Guru[edit]

  • (After Inspector Gadget accidentally grabs his scrotum which causes him to use a high voice) UNGRIP! UNGRIP! TURN IT OFF!
  • (as he was taken to the hospital) He's not a man, you know! He's a monster!


Penny: Having another hero cop dream, Uncle John?
John Brown: Every time I close my eyes. How was school?
Penny: Fine. Don't forget tomorrow is the day parents come over to talk about their careers.
John Brown: Oh, I have work tomorrow.

John Brown: Attention! Driver of the wrecked black limo attached to the Yahoo! billboard, this is security officer John Brown. Please step out of the vehicle, immediately or... else.
Sanford Scolex: (with his hands up) Fine work, Mr. Security Guard! You got me. Here, have a victory cigar.
John Brown: No, thanks.
Sanford Scolex: (after lighting it up, insisting) Remember: smoking kills!
John Brown: I don't smoke!
Sanford Scolex: Oh, really? You will now.
John Brown: (realizing that the "victory cigar' is a fuse, tries to get out) Oh, boy...
(the fuse blows up John Brown; also sending a bowling ball rocketing out of Brown's car. Scolex opens his sunroof and the bowling ball falls through and crushes his left hand.)
Sanford Scolex: 'AAAAAAAAAAHHHHH!!!!!! MY HAND!!!!!'

Dr. Claw: Not bad, Kramer. Not bad at all. This is sort of post-modern Captain Hook kind of feel and I'm diabolical. I deserve a dashing appellation.
Kramer: Dashing appellation? What is that, a hillbilly with a tuxedo?
Dr. Claw: No, you idiot! It's a nickname, one that send my enemies cowering in fear. Too bad Hook is taken, huh?
Sykes: How about, eh, Captain Claw?
Dr. Claw: No, no, no, no.
Kramer: Or Santa Claw.
Dr. Claw: Just Claw. One word, like Madonna.
Kramer: Well, anyhoo, captain, sir, uh, Mr. Claw, I know how much you like to maintain an active lifestyle so I have managed to design a few interchangeable options. (waves with interchangable hand) Hi hi.
Dr. Claw: Oh,very clever, Kramer.
Sykes: (Mocking) Oh, very clever, Kramer.
Dr. Claw: Very clever, indeed. (Claw snaps near Kramer's face)
Kramer: Well, first we have the opera hand, for those special nights out. And I know how much you enjoy Japanese food so I made you a sushi hand. See there? Tasty. Also, I don't remember if you enjoyed that medieval fair but...
Dr. Claw: Kramer, that's enough. (To Sykes) Sykes, bring on the foot.
(Dr. Claw closes the case, pinning Kramer's hand)

Dr. Claw: A quality of this android have a myriad of uses: shock troops, kamikaze pilots, hit men...
Kramer: International rescue workers, teachers.
Dr. Claw: Oh yes, I was getting to them. Well, let's see it in action. I'll just strap myself in. Okay, turn me on, Kramer.

Dr. Claw: Move! Darn you, move!
Sykes: It's a lemon.
Dr. Claw: Thank you for that, Sykes. We'll put it on you. Come on.
Sykes: Why can't he do it?
Dr. Claw: He's capable of intelligent thought. That's useful to me.

Inspector Gadget: Go Go Gadgetmobile?
Gadgetmobile: Good mornin', Riverton! Hey! Who's in the car?! I work alone!
[he drives off with Gadget in tow]
Gadgetmobile: Hey. Before we hit the road, I gotta tell you somethin'. DUCK!
Inspector Gadget: I don't think the car likes me.
Gadgetmobile: Who're you calling "car"? I'm a crime-fighting machine. Watch this. Left turn! Ain't you fallen out yet?
Inspector Gadget: No, sir, I haven't!
Gadgetmobile: Who are you, rookie?
Inspector Gadget: I'm Officer John Brown, and you're exceeding the speed limit.
Gadgetmobile: Speed limits are for cars, not the Gadgetmobile!
Inspector Gadget: Are you... are you talking to me?
Gadgetmobile: Speaking of breaking the law, who's not wearing a seat belt? You gotta wear seat belts, baby. It's a Disney movie. Now, I'm going to find me some crime. More left turns!
Inspector Gadget: Can you slow down, please? I...I get carsick.
Gadgetmobile: You know what makes me people sick: a rookie who thinks he's good enough for Dr. B.
Inspector Gadget: Not that is any of your business, but what makes you think I was putting the moves on Dr. Bradford?
Gadgetmobile: Hey, I got heat sensors, and I know what you're thinkin' when Dr. B. gave you that smile. Look here, come clean with me, or I'm gonna bounce you right outta here.
Inspector Gadget: I can assure you my interest on Dr. Bradford is professional.
Gadgetmobile: Professional, huh? Well, good. Keep it that way and that's an order. You got it?
Inspector Gadget: Uh, I'm the inspector, you're the car.
Gadgetmobile: I'll tell you what you are. You're...
(Inspector Gadget hits Gadgetmobile)
Gadgetmobile: Don't make me use my hook on you.
Inspector Gadget: Is there an off button or something? Mute? (Paintball hits a man) Sorry, sir.
Gadgetmobile: Don't push my buttons without reading the manual!

Dr. Claw: Sykes!
Sykes: Yes, boss?
Dr. Claw: Get my tuxedo ready. Tomorrow, promises to be quite an evening.

Inspector Gadget: Is it that obvious?
Penny: Come on, Uncle John, you just need to loosen up. Be cool.
Inspector Gadget: Have you been talking to my car?
Penny: What?
Inspector Gadget: You'll see.

Dr. Claw: Brenda, Sanford Scolex. We were at Harvard together.
Brenda: We were?
Dr. Claw: Oh, you don't recognize me; that's because I've changed. I was obese. Maybe you remember me like this.
(Dr. Claw fills his mouth with air to simulate his prior obesity)

Kramer: I've pretty much completed Prometheus per your specifications. And I must say the likeness is really quite convincing.
Dr. Claw: Good. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, Kramer.
Kramer: Isn't that Dr. Brenda Crawford's private data?
Dr. Claw: Yes. I tapped into her files and stole her research.
Kramer: Why would you do that?
Dr. Claw: (mocking) Why would you do that? Why would you do that?
(Dr. Claw pinches Dr. Kramer's nose)
Dr. Claw: Kramer, don't look so nonplussed.

Dr. Claw: Imagine my relief to have your support.
Kramer: Anyway, sir. Like I said, without the chip, you... (Dr. Claw shows his chip) So you made the chip.
Sykes: Hey, that's just looks like the guy we almost killed.
Kramer: I didn't hear that!
(Dr. Claw inserts the chip to activate RoboGadget)
Dr. Claw: Chips ahoy! Good morning, RoboGadget. You have just been activated by the most advanced piece of computer technology in the world. What are you going to do now?
RoboGadget: I'm going to kick some butt.
Dr. Claw: Oh, very saucy!
Sykes: It looks so real.
(RoboGadget pokes Sykes' eyes)

Penny: Uncle John, I love you, but I think you have a loose wire.
(Gadgetmobile laughs. Scolex Industries truck appears)
Penny: Uh, what about that?
Inspector Gadget: Scolex Industries.
Gadgetmobile: Hello! Finally, there's a detective in the house.
Inspector Gadget: Wait a minute. If Scolex stole the foot then Scolex murdered Dr... Oh no. Brenda.

Penny: What about me?
Gadgetmobile: You're smarter than he is. Stay in the car. I don't mind babysitting you, Penny, but please tell the beagle that that's an arm rest, not a chew toy!

Brenda Bradford: I'll go get Scolex. Maybe he can help.
Inspector Gadget: Brenda, it's not safe here! Scolex is a liar and a thief! Let's just say he's not a very good guy! Go home! Lock your doors! Stay alive!

Dr. Claw: Greetings, inspector. Glad you could drop in.
Inspector Gadget: I owe you one, Scolex. You blew me up and my Chevette. And I really liked that car.
Dr. Claw: Well, you crushed my hand and I really liked that hand. So Go Go get over it.
Inspector Gadget: I don't know what you're up to, Scolex, but you'll never get away with this.
Dr. Claw: How cliche, inspector. I think somebody's been watching too many Saturday morning cartoons.
(Dr. Claw Dr. Kramer and Inspector Gadget look at Sykes)
Dr. Claw: Unfortunately, Gadget, in the real world, evil often quite prevails. 'Fraid so. (to Sykes) Pull him up.

Dr. Claw: Now, look how your current replacement is helping people to cross the street.
Inspector Gadget: Hey, he looks just like me. I don't get it. Why would you do this?
Kramer: To make teachers!
Dr. Claw: SHUT UP!!
Kramer: Oh! (whimpers)
Dr. Claw: I'll tell you why. To make techno-warriors that never get tired, never get hungry, and never say "no". Every army in the world would be made up of my creations. Imagine the confusion, Gadget, huh? Imagine the perks. Comprende?
Inspector Gadget: Yeah, I comprende.
Dr. Claw: No, no, no. I comprendo, yo comprendo. Conjugate the word, for pity's sake! Pull out his NSA chip before he butchers another language.
Kramer: You're kidding, right? Ok, you see, he's always kidding! I never know.
Dr. Claw: This time no. I wanna make sure nobody else could develop their own android. Do it or you'll be building yourself a new head.

Dr. Claw: Dump this idiot in the junkyard. (Sykes grabs Dr. Kramer) No no no, not that idiot, this one.
Sykes: I wish you'd be specific, we got an awful lot of idiots around here.
Dr. Claw: Attention, RoboGadget, destroy the city and have some fun.
RoboGadget: OK, boss! You with the beard, come here!

RoboGadget: You know how to dance, don't you?
Inspector Gadget: Well, I've been taking lessons but...
RoboGadget: Shut up and dance!
(RoboGadget unleashes two machine guns)

RoboGadget: Hey, what did you do that for? We shouldn't be fighting. We have a lot in common, except that I have nicer teeth. We should be working together, be partners. Together, you and I could rule the world.
Inspector Gadget: You should have quit while you were ahead.
(Inspector Gadget pauses at the unintended pun tosses RoboGadget's head to the river)

Brenda Bradford: Two things, Scolex! One, you are completely insane! And two, I liked you better fat!
(Dr. Claw gets shocked by this, and M.A.D. Cat hides under the seat)
Dr. Claw: BRING ON THE BROWNIES!!! Ha! Wheel in the waffles! I'm ready to binge!

'[Inspector Gadget arrives in his helicopter hat to save Brenda]
Dr. Claw: DARN! That fellow will not give us a break!
Inspector Gadget: For the third time, Sanford Scolex, you are under arrest!

Dr. Claw: (mocking) GO GO GADGET!!! (sticks out tongue and laughs before lifting Inspector Gadget stuck on his helecopter landing gear) Let me give you a lift! [Cackling] Where can I drop you off?
Inspector Gadget: I'd answer but I doubt you'd really care!
Brenda Bradford: John, up here! Take my hand!
Dr. Claw: Hi, John, how you're doing down there?
Brenda Bradford: John!
Dr. Claw: (Mocking) John! (Laughs)

Dr. Claw: (his claw broken but still moving) Ugh. Back to the drawing board!

(Dr. Claw tries to grab Brenda again, but Brenda hits him with the handcuffs he held her hostage on the joystick when it broke, leaving him stunned)

Inspector Gadget: Brenda, jump! Right on my back!
Dr. Claw: (trying to get Brenda to stay) Oh, Brenda, don't jump!! For God's sake, we can work this out!! Darling, sweetie pie, really!!

(But it is too late as Brenda jumps on Gadget. Dr.Claw realizes that his helicopter isn't working, so he knows...) OH, MY GOD! We are out of control!

Penny: This is the coolest watch. It's a radio, computer, and even a phone. Testing, testing. Brain, say something. Over.
Brain: Brain is not here. Please leave a message at the sound of the woof. Woof.
