  • [to Oliver when they first meet] Hey, I don't eat cats, too much fur!
  • Absitively posolutely!
  • Consider this a free lesson in street savoir faire from New York's coolest quadruped. Check ya later!
  • If ya want 'em, come an' get 'em! Uh-huh. But I'm warnin' ya, kid. [Sings:] One minute, Ah'm in Central Park;/Then I'm down on Delancy Street./From the Bowery to St. Mark's,/There's a syncopated beat.
  • [Sings:] Why should I worry? Tell me: why should I care? I may not have a dime, but I got street savoir-faire.
  • [Sings:] The rhythm of the city: once you get it down, then you can own this town; then you can wear the cra-ow-ow-own! Why should I worry? Tell me: why should I care? I may not have a dime, but I got street savoir-faire.


  • [sniffs a cigar] Hey, man, if this is torture, chain me to the wall!
  • Hey, man, you're ugly! And you're uglier than him! And you're Ugly, Part Three! Hey, you're Revenge of the Ugly!
  • [seeing Oliver revealed] Mi madre, un gato!


  • We gotta clean you up, child, and get you some on-the-job trainin'.
  • Run along, Roscoe. Your master's calling.
  • [Sings] Now listen up: you've got a lot to learn/and if you don't learn, you don't eat./But if you're tough, an' always use yo' head,/you'll feel right at home on the street./When you've got talent, everything is free./Watch how we do things: Ooh, I'll guarantee/You're gonna see, how;–– the best survive;/We make an art, out;–– of stayin' alive/If you do just as you're told,/these are streets of gold!.
  • [Sings] Ev'ry bouleva'd, is: a Miracle Mile/We take the town, and, we take it with style!/If you play it brave an' bold,/these are streets of gold!.
  • Excuse me, uh, sister. Who's Rex?
  • If I never see that skinny little shrimp again, it will be too soon.


  • My name is Francis. Fran-cis. Not Frank. Not Frankie. Francis.

  • Well, it may be Jenny's house, but everything from the doorknobs down is MINE!!
  • I love you, Oliver. Play with Georgette. I'd like to play with him, all right! The little fur ball!
  • None of your business! And you, "Tubby": off the bed!
  • Oh. I broke a nail.
  • That's it! We'll start with a bath.


  • [seeing his dogs fight] All right, all right, knock it off! ENOUGH! What is the matter with you guys? [dogs stops and looked at him] Don't you understand? Sykes will be here any minute, and I don't have... [dogs joyfully running to their master] No, no, no, no!
  • I don't wanna put any undue pressure on you, but as you march off to do your duty, I want you to keep one thing in mind: Dead men do not buy dog food! So big smiles, and get out there, and FETCH!
