- "Shut up. Kick Ass."
- "I can't fly, but I can kick your ass."
- "I can't be invisible, but I can kick your ass."
- "I can't see through walls, but I can kick your ass."
- "I can't read your mind, but I can kick your ass."
- "You are fucking awesome!"
- Kick-Ass: With no power comes no responsibility, except that wasn't true!. (rephrasing quote from Spider-Man)
- Kick-Ass: How do I get a hold of you guys?
- Hit Girl: You just contact the mayor's office, he has a special signal he shines in the sky. It's in the shape of a giant cock.
- Big Daddy: (lifts up gun at Mindy) You're gonna be fine, babydoll! (shoots Mindy in the chest)
- Hit-Girl: OK, you cunts, let's see what you can do now.
- Marcus Williams: You owe that kid a childhood.
- Big Daddy: I'll tell you who owes her a childhood: FRANK D'AMICO!
- Hit-Girl: (after saving Big Daddy and Kick-Ass from being executed on live television) Show's over, motherfuckers. (destroys the video camera)
- Red Mist: As a great man once said, "Wait 'til they get a load of me!"
- Red Mist: That's right, we're superheroes, you love us.
- Frank D'Amico (in mockingly childish falsetto): Mommy! I want a Kick-Ass party! Dumb little fucks.
- Huge Goon: Fuck this, I'm getting the bazooka!
- Huge Goon: Everything is under control. (grabs the bazooka)
- Red Mist: Under control? You're grabbing a fucking bazooka you dumbass.
- Huge goon (about to fire the bazooka): Say hello to my little friend! (quoting Tony Montana from Scarface)
- Kick-Ass: (while attempting to rescue a stubborn cat named 'Mister Bitey' who was stuck on a billboard platform) FUCK YOU, Mister Bitey! (falls off platform)
- Dave/Kick-Ass: Jesus, doesn't that bug you guys? Like thousands of people want to be Paris Hilton; nobody wants to be Spider-Man."
- Marty: Yeah, what's with that? She has like no tits, at all.
- Hit-Girl: You know what? Everyone likes Kick-Ass. If you see the clip he's actually pretty good.
- Big Daddy: Good at getting his ass... kicked. They should call him Ass-Kick, instead. (laughs sarcastically)
- Hit-Girl: That doesn't even make sense.
