  • He's gonna sing, folks. Now's the time to go out and get the popcorn.
  • Say, I haven't looked for work since I was night watchmen at Vassar.


Ken Arok: You will love Vaatu. It is an island paradise.
Harold Gridley: Girls, huh?
Ken Arok: Could it be paradise without girls?

Harold Gridley: Is that the way all the natives dress on your island?
Male Native: Nods
Harold Gridley: Really? George, do you suppose...
George Cochran: Not a chance.
Harold Gridley: Stick around folks, he could be wrong you know.

George Cochran: I wonder what the locals are like?
Princess Lala: I hope they're not cannibals or headhunters!
Harold Gridley: I hope they're orange pickers, I want to get out of this tree!
George Cochran: Oh, stop squawking, you'll fall off when you're ripe!

George Cochran: What's that?
Harold Gridley: Oh, that's Errol Flynn. He can't stand it.

Harold Gridley: Say, Haggis!
George Cochran: What is it, MacBaggis?
Harold Gridley: Have you heard the latest about MacTavish?
George Cochran: What's he done now?
Harold Gridley: I heard he's living on the roof!
George Cochran: Why would he be living on the roof?
Harold Gridley: Because he heard someone say, "Drinks are on the house!"

Princess Lala: Do you always fight over girls?
Harold Gridley: Well, what else can we fight over? We've never had any money. [Looking straight into the camera] That's for Washington!

Princess Lala: [showing a portrait of a woman in regal dress] She was my mother, Queen Tama of Vaatu.
George Cochran: Hm, beautiful.
Princess Lala: [indicating the portrait next to it of a man in a kilt] And he was my father.
George Cochran: Didn't anybody in the family wear the pants?
