- That's not cute.
- [to Nat, hitting him with the leash] Why are you hitting yourself, huh? Why are you hitting yourself? That's not attractive for a zoo official.
- Could you pass the salt? I'll get it.
- When did I ever disappoint anybody?
- Mr. Popper, Pippi. I've parleyed with The Tavern people, and persuaded them to ponder your proposal.
- Mr. Popper, phew! Punctuality is a priority for this particular person.
- Pippi: [to receptionist] Pippi Pepennopolis; I'm Mr. Popper's personal assistant. I process his paper and procure his periodicals.
- Mr. Popper: [Aside, to receptionist] She doesn't even know she's doing it.
- Pippi: Pardon?
- Mr. Popper: Nothing.
- Mr. Popper: I'm not coming in to work again today.
- Pippi: Pourquoi?
- Mr. Popper: I have a pest problem.
- Pippi: What particular pest is the problem?
- Mr. Popper: It's a penguin.
- Pippi: Penguin?
- Mr. Popper: Yeah! It starts with "p"; you ought to be able to handle it.
- Pippi: Per your predicament, I printed a pertinent page from Wikipedia. [Reads] "Gentoo penguins may periodically imprint on a particular person as if they were a penguin. Once imprinted, they remain permanently proximate to their parental proxy."
- Mr. Popper: Is it actually written that way?
- Pippi: I'm paraphrasing.
- Mr. Popper: Hello! I have to send the penguins back.
- Voice of Antarctic Friend: Send-da-penguin?
- Mr. Popper: Yes, send penguins.
- Mr. Popper: You are falling asleep.
- Amanda: No I'm not.

- Mr. Popper: Uh-uh, I'm not leaving him, he's a Popper.
