I could never hurt anybody — Ow! My whole purpose in life is to... make... people... laugh!

Who Framed Roger Rabbit is a 1988 film that combines animation and live action. The film takes place in Los Angeles in 1947, where animated characters (always referred to as "Toons") are real beings who live and work alongside humans in the real world, most of them as actors in animated cartoons.

Directed by Robert Zemeckis. Written by Jeffrey Price and Peter S. Seaman, based on the novel Who Censored Roger Rabbit? by Gary Wolf.
It's the story of a man, a woman, and a rabbit in a triangle of trouble.

Roger Rabbit[edit]

  • My whole purpose in life is to... make... people... laugh!
  • Is there nothing that can permeate your impervious puss? Hey, Eddie!

Eddie Valiant[edit]

  • Scotch on the rocks. And I mean ice!
  • [to Earl, who recently got laid off] Here's to the pencil pushers. May they all get lead poisoning.

Judge Doom[edit]

  • [after showing Eddie his true form: A toon; as his voice grows higher-pitched every second] Remember me, Eddie?! When I killed your brother, I talked just... like... THIS!

Dialogue[edit]

Jessica: You don't know how hard it is being a woman looking the way I do.
Eddie: You don't know how hard it is being a man looking at a woman looking the way you do.
Jessica: I'm not bad. I'm just drawn that way.

[after the weasels have searched Eddie and Jessica for the will, but have failed]
Doom: Do they have the will or not?
Smart Ass: Nah, just a stupid love letter.
Doom: No matter. I doubt if that will is going to show up in the next 15 minutes, anyway.
Eddie: What happens in the next 15 minutes?
Doom: Toontown will be legally mine--lock, stock, and barrel.

Eddie: D'you mean to tell me you could've taken your hand outta that cuff at any time?!
Roger: No. Not at any time. Only when it was funny. Bl-bl-bl-! [jumps away as Eddie tries to hit him and spins in a chair] C'mon, Eddie! Where's your sense of humor?
Dolores: Is he always this funny or only on days when he's wanted for murder?

Smart Ass: Say, Judge. You want we should "disresemble" the place?
Doom: No, Sergeant. Disassembling the place won't be necessary. The rabbit is going to come right to me.
[he taps "Shave and a Haircut" on counter]
Doom: No toon can resist the old Shave-and-a-Haircut trick. (taps "Shave and a Haircut" a few times)
Eddie: I don't know who's toonier; you or Doom.
[Roger starts freaking out]
Eddie: Roger!
[Doom taps "Shave and a Haircut"; Roger freaks out even more]
Eddie: Roger! Roger, no!
[Doom taps "Shave and a Haircut" again; Roger violently freaks out to his limits]
Doom: Shave and a haircut.
[Roger crashes through the wall]
Roger: 2 BITS!!

Eddie: Happy Trails.
Roger: No, thanks, Eddie. I'm tryin' to cut down.
Eddie: Drink the drink!
Roger: But I don't want the drink!
Doom: He doesn't want the drink.
Eddie: He does!
Roger: I don't!
Eddie: You do!
Roger: I don't!
Eddie: You do!
Roger: I don't!
Eddie: You do!
Roger: I don't!
Eddie: You don't.
Roger: I do!
Eddie: You don't!
Roger: I do!
Eddie: You don't!
Roger: [takes the drink] Listen! When I say "I do", that means I do!

About Who Framed Roger Rabbit[edit]

  • You know in pre-video and pre-VHS and VCR and stuff, people used to put little inside jokes in films because things were running at 1/24 of a second. So you say, 'Well, nobody’s seeing anything.’ ... And then so [cartoonists] will do that as a joke.
But really since the modern age of playing back stuff and everything, they look at everything now, even the old films. They’ll go frame by frame, and they’ll pull those questionable things out all the time.
