(Finding the 'doll' that came in the mail, not realizing Stu already has the doll and Tommy is in the box)
Grandpa: Looks lifelike. Even smells lifelike. If I didn't know better, I say it was Tommy.

Grandpa: In my day we did all our counting with our fingers, and for bigger numbers we used our toes!

Didi: Stu, you haven't worn that thing since 1977!

Didi: Oh, nothing, sweetheart; it's something that happened a long time ago and is never, ever coming back, so don't you worry.

(rushing to get Tommy & Chuckie into bed before Morgana shows up)
Grandpa: Once upon a time, there was a very lonely bunny who needed some friends, and found some friends, and everyone was happy. The end.

Howard: Who do you think I am? An imbecile?
Stu: Wow, Howard! And it only took you 15 seconds!

Chazz: Sometimes it takes a more mature person to stop a fight than one who started it to begin with.
Stu: Right, Chazz. Why don't you go home and watch more of those Mr. Rogers reruns?

Grandpa: It's nice to make new friends, even if you knew them for 76 years.

Stu:: The bald guy gave the action-musical movie The Merminator "thumbs up".
Grandpa: I bet the fat guy hated it!

Angelica: Yes, yes. All goes accordion to plan, we'll go inside Chuckie, all right. But little do those babies know that I'm not gonna get rid of that Watermelon seed; I'm gonna make it grow!

Dr. Lipschitz: Thanks to those rugrats, I am completely revising my theories. The old "Dr. Lipschitz" is now merely an historical footnote; from now on, I'm now going to base my work on the French method of childrearing.

Stu: Charlotte, it's so nice that you can finally get away from work and spend the holidays with us.
Charlotte: Well, it is Christmas; after all, it's the season of love & joy.
(back to Jonathan on the phone)
Charlotte: I don't care, Jonathan! We got to crush the competition and we got to crush them now!

Angelica: You don't know the first thing about magic! (walks away)
Chuckie: Tommy, what's the first thing about magic?
Tommy: I don't know, Chuckie.
Phil: Hmm. Guess Angelica was right!

Angelica: It all started when the first present was given by the Pilgrims a long time ago. Then everybody started giving presents; even the Easter Bunny started giving them until Santa slapped him with a lawsuit.
(explaining the history of Christmas to Phil & Lil)

Randy: Say, Luce, remember the realtor told us about that ancient Indian curse? You don't think he (Stu) is it, do you?

Angelica: You dumb babies! Stop having fun! It's just a dumb old box!

Chaz: I still can't believe Didi's baby brother is getting married. I mean, it seems like only yesterday he was running around in short pants screaming.
Stu: That was only yesterday, Chaz. Remember the bachelor party?

Charlotte: I have to go, Jonathan; I'm at a friend's merger, er, wedding.

(giving the babies orders via her toy cellphone, which she has planted in Spike's mouth)
Angelica: Do you always do what your mommy tells you?
Tommy: Yes.
Angelica: Well, cut it out!

(Being punished for ruining Drew's office)
Angelica: Oh, hello, Daddy!
Drew: Angelica, what did daddy say about playing in his study?
Angelica: Mmm...
Drew: Didn't daddy tell you not to play in here? Didn't daddy specifically explain to you about hundred times how important his papers are?
Angelica: Yes, Daddy! I'm so sorry. I'll never do it again. I promise!
Drew: Angelica, it's not gonna work this time!
Angelica: Oh, okay... I'm really, really sorry, daddy dear, and I promise I'll never ever...
Drew: You're not being sincere, young lady! This time you're in big trouble!
Angelica: Daddy, you're silly. I can't be in trouble. I'm Angelica! Your only daughter. Your princess! Your cupcake! Your little tax shelter!

Drew: Well, I did it! I actually did it! I disciplined Angelica!

Boris: Why don't you turn on the Sesame Seed for them to watch?
Minka: What am I, your servant girl? Why don't you turn on the Sesame Seed?
Boris: I can't. I'm too old.
Minka: I'm old too.
Boris: But I'm older.
Minka: By 2 weeks!
Boris: It was a leap year!
Minka: Leap year, schmeap year! Now go turn on the Seed!

(After saving Chuckie's life)
Angelica: All I need is a 'Thank You', and... oh, yeah, for you to be my slave for the rest of your life.

Angelica: Tooth fairy? What a joke! Cheat fairy's more like her!

Angelica: Could [a magic lamp] turn Fluffy into a flying horse?
Grandpa: It could turn Fluffy into a Ferarri!

Grandpa: Aladdin rubbed the magic lamp and wished for a Kingfisher 9000 Speed Boat.

Grandpa: Aladdin rubbed the lamp so he could turn rocks into gold, so he could buy a Kingfisher 9000."

[after Finding Chazz buried in the sand on the beach with only his head visible]

Susie: That was the final nail in the coffee! (thinking Angelica has stole her tricycle)

(After the babies trick Angelica into thinking she has the fictional ailment Rhinoceritis)
Drew: Angelica, why are you eating grass?
Angelica: Be careful, daddy; a rhinoceros is known to charge at random.

Grandpa: Some people call him 'Bigfoot'; some call him 'Sasquatch', the rest just call him 'Sir'.

Tommy: I call my building blocks artwork "3 Babies and a Guitar".
Angelica: Do you know what I call it? (kicks blocks) A mess!

Didi: If hippos were meant to fly, they wouldn't weigh 3000 pounds.

(flashback in which he and Drew try to watch Blocky and Oxwinkle even after being punished)
Young Stu: It's our right to watch cartoons! Not my mom, not my dad, not even President Weisenheimer's gonna stop us!

Angelica: Another boring day at the Finster house. I can't believe I'm spending the best days of my life here!

Angelica: Let me know if you want me to break anymore of your best friend's toys. See ya!

Angelica: Home movies are movies that other people don't want to watch.
Tommy: But why do they watch home movies?
Angelica: They have to; it's the law.

Grandpa: Stu! Didi! Great news! They're bringing back The Masked Detective!
Stu: Great! Where was he?

Chuckie: I saw this movie, King Krong, where he was pushed off the Entire State Building.
Tommy: So?
Chuckie: So why don't we push Mr. Friend off the Entire State Building? Never mind. I don't know why I even try.

Angelica: What kind of bozo would not put the key in the package?
Chuckie: Bozo works at the handcuff factory?
Angelica: Do me a favor; just keep quiet for awhile?

(After Tommy "rearranges" his Bogo Blocks toy village)
Chuckie: The police car's at the fire station; the fire truck's at the airport; the airplane's on top of the restaurant; people are hanging out of windows and doors, buildings have moved, and you've completely taken apart City Hall!"

Angelica: Chuckie's a stupid name. Blaine's a TV name. Everyone knows TV names are better.

Charlotte: Now what do we do the next time we want something?
Angelica: Ask Daddy ?

(after Chuckie describes having a dream involving the Rugrats in a weird wonderland, a talking Spike, and Tommy with a clown face)
Lil: I wish Tommy was a clown, then we can feed him peanuts!
Phil: That's elephants, Lillian.

(when Phil & Lil keep disobeying her orders)
Angelica: Ooh, you babies are so incontinent!

(Grandpa's black hair dye gives him red hair after being exposed to the sun)
Grandpa: Serves me right to fool Mother Nature.
Didi: And to order stuff from daytime TV.

Angelica: Chanukah is the special time of year between Christmas and Misgiving when all the bestest holiday shows are on TV.

Dotted-Line Girl (Lil): I'm just a dotted line!
Angelitron (Angelica): Any idiot can see a dotted line!

Josh: We'll split the babies, 50/50.
Angelica: Who gets the heads?!

(explaining to the babies what happened "the last time the world ended")
Angelica: Rivers overflowed, mountains crumbled, and all the TV shows were cancelled.

Angelica: (going off to look for the cookies) I'll be right back; I'm gonna check on the babies.
Tommy: Okay.
Chuckie: What did Angelica say?
Tommy: She says that she's going to check on the babies.
Chuckie: Oh.
All: (realizing) We are the babies!

Grandpa: I won 15 jackpots in a row last time I was in Las Vegas. They flew me home first class just to get rid of me!
Drew: I thought mom said you lost everything but your underwear and went home by bus?
Grandpa: Oh, what does she know?

Phil: I want a cheeseburger.
Lil: Yeah! With chocolate!
Angelica: You'll eat what I give you and like it! You have a choice of barbecubed yucky carrots or barbecubed yucky peas.
Rugrats: Yuck!
Angelica: (to Tommy) So what it'll be, Baldy?
Tommy: I can't decide.
Angelica: Why? Because it sounds so good?
Tommy: No; because your barbecue is gone!

(to Tommy and Chuckie don't cry)
Angelica: Why can I go, I'm wasn't crying.
Circus Ringmaster: Sorry, those.

(on Dil's birth)
Stu: Deed, she's so beautiful. She's... she's a boy!

Didi: Chuckie? What happened to your shirt?
Grandpa: If he's hungry as I am, he probably ate it!

Boris: Back in the old country, we didn't have wheelbarrows to move the wood. You had to chop down a tree and hope it fell in your living room!

Angelica: 'Chicken Pops' is what turns little kids into chickens. That's why Chuckie has to stay inside. If the grownups let Chuckie outside, he'd get eaten by a cat!

Minka: So Little Red Riding Hood skipped through the forest--
Boris: It's Little Blue Riding Hood, Minka, not red!
Minka: Boris, is the story 'Little Blue Riding Hood'? No! It's 'Little Red Riding Hood'! Anyway, so Little Red Riding Hood meets a wolf in the forest...
Boris: It was a goat! In the desert!
Minka: Wolf!
Boris: Goat!
Minka: Wolf!
Boris: Desert!
Minka: Forest!
Chuckie: I like when your gramma and grampa tell stories, Tommy!
Tommy: Yeah, we always get two stories instead of one!

Angelica: Juggling is like playing catch, only by yourself.

Phil: I got diaper rash down to my knees.

Angelica: Sometimes I wish I could be you, just so I can be friends with me!

Grandpa: Back in my day, I used to work as a carny; I worked day and night and slept with the elephants. If one of them had a bad dream, they'd roll over and squash ya!

Didi: I hope Grandpa comes back with anything other than 40 boxes of Fudgy Dingaling Bars.
Stu: I hope they come back.

Tommy: Your room is a potty?

Didi: No, snookums; toilet paper is for cleaning messes, not making them.

Angelica: Baked apples! I hate stinky baked apples!

Tommy: My mouth's so dry I can't even spit!

Tommy: I got up, but my legs feel like Jello; the red kind, not the green kind with bananas that I like. (as the Masked Detective's narration)

(to "Tonya" (Tommy in a dress))
Angelica: Next to me, you're the cutest girl in the show!

Tommy: See? That's the Weatherman. He's the guy who makes it hot or cold outside!

Tommy: No! I knew Spike! Spike's my friend, and let me tell you something, that dog's no Spike!


Phil: Boy! How come kittypillars work so hard to end up so ugly?

Minka: Boris! Vere are the dumplings?
Boris: I put zem in the refrigerator.
Minka: Not those dumplings!

Thorg the toy Gorilla: Thorg Hungry! Thorg Want Eat!

[Tommy and Chuckie think they are grown-ups]
Chuckie: Coffee, Tommy?
Tommy: Sure, I'll have a cup of jobe.

[Thinking that they wished Dil away]
Tommy: But... but... people just don't disappear because you wish for them to.
Phil: Yeah, Angelica- you're still here.

Didi: Stu, what are you doing?
Stu: (despondent) Making chocolate pudding.
Didi: It's 4:00 in the morning. Why on earth are you making chocolate pudding?
Stu: Because I've lost control of my life.
(moments later)
Stu: Here's your chocolate pudding, Angelica.
Angelica: Oh, that's okay, Uncle Stu! I'm not hungry anymore.
Stu: (screams)

Tommy: Friends til the end!

Angelica: If you have to ask, you'll never know.

Angelica: [Sing-song voice] Ha ha ha-ha ha! I get to have some gum! [Starts to chew it] You don't get any 'cause you're a baby! You just swallow it!

Didi: [Grabs the bottle from Tommy] No, no, no. Honey, I'm sorry, but Dr. Homer says you're too big for bottles now.

Miss Carol: Oh, you call that a fun phrase? I'll tell you the real fun phrase. SHE THINKS THEY'RE ALL LITTLE--(bad word censored by a forklift horn)

Didi: [in Tommy's dream sequence] No, no, no. You're too big for bottles now.
Dr. Homer: [in Tommy's dream sequence] No more bottles, but how about a balloon!
Phil: [in Tommy's dream sequence] Sorry, Tommy.
Lil: [in Tommy's dream sequence] Yeah, sorry. Wish we can help!
Stu: [in Tommy's dream sequence] Crossbite!

Didi: Oh, Charlotte. She's beautiful. [Newborn Angelica sees cookie, tries to grab it] Oh no. You're too little to have a cookie. [chuckles]
Newborn Angelica: Waaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!
(flash forward, six months later)
Six-month-old Angelica: Waaaaahhhhhhh!!! Waaaaahhhhhhhhh!!! Waaaaahhhhhhh!!!


Angelica: Oh Mommy, I'll need shiny shoes, and my prettiest dress, and you have to do my hair up real pretty, and make sure it-
Charlotte: Don't worry, sweetie. I'm sure Miss Carol will think you're Fun-a-Riffic. (to Didi) They call that the Fun Phrase.
Angelica: No, mommy. The real fun phrase is, "She thinks we're all little--" (bad word censored by truck horn)
Charlotte: (screams)
Angelica: Oh Mommy, I knew you'd be a-cited for me. Oh, I gotta go tell Cythina. [runs off] Cythina!

Drew: So, sweetheart, since your Fun Phrase has a bad word in it, it would make mommy and me happy if you just didn't say it anymore.
Angelica: Well, which word is the bad one, Daddy?
Drew: (nervously) Well, it's--I mean it's the w-- Look, maybe it would just be better if you didn't say ANY of those words anymore, Angelica.
Angelica: Is it "We're"?
Drew: Angelica!
Angelica: Is it "All"?
Charlotte: Angelica, you are not to say that word again!
Angelica: Is it "Little"?
Drew: (even angrier) Angelica! If you say that word one more time, we are not going to take you be at Miss Carol's show!
Angelica: (gasps) Oh, you mean it's-- (bad word censored by jackhammer)
Charlotte: (screams)
(cut to Angelica crying in her room)
Angelica: Now I can't be on the show--and I don't even know what that word means! (continues crying)

Miss Carol: Timmy, you'll be the first to say it live in front of millions of viewers! What does Miss Carol think of her kids?
Timmy: (in a state of shock, stammers) Hubba-hubba...
(Timmy continues until he goes pulverized making Miss Carol angry)
Miss Carol: (goes back to smiling) Okay, well, thanks for coming in, Timmy. (goes to Kim) All right, Kim, why don't you try? What does Miss Carol think of her kids?
Kim: Um, um... (runs off crying) I WANT MY MOMMY!!!!!
Miss Carol: Okay, Angelica, I'm relying on you. Tell everyone the new Fun Phrase. What does Miss Carol think of her kids?
Angelica: (nervously) She thinks, um, we're all little...
(She mumbles as her parents panic making "don't say it" gestures)
Miss Carol: (now impatient) Okay, Angelica, if you love Miss Carol at all, YOU WILL TELL US RIGHT NOW, WHAT DOES MISS CAROL THINK OF HER KIDS!!!!!!!
Angelica: (inhales triumphantly) She thinks we're all little-- (Her last word gets censored by Charlotte's horrifed scream)
Drew: (covers his eyes in shock) OH, NO!!!!
Miss Carol: That's it! Get her out! Get her out of here!
Angelica: But that's what you said! You said it, Miss Carol!
Miss Carol: (loses it) You're right! You're right, you know that! You're right! (throws down her microphone) I have said it before and I will say it again! (laughs deviously) YOU'RE ALL LITTLE-- (Her last word gets censored by a long beep with a test pattern show on the screen, the two camera crew goes stunned before looking at each other)
Angelica: See?! See?! She did say it!
