Aladdin (1992)
Sultan: Prince Ali Ababwa! Of course! I'm delighted to meet you.
[he shakes Aladdin's hand]
Sultan: This is my royal vizier, Jafar. He's delighted, too.
Jafar: [very dryly] Ecstatic.

[Iago is running on a treadmill which powers a mystic device]
Iago: With all due respect, Your Rottenness, couldn't we just wait for a real storm?
Jafar: Save your breath, Iago. Faster!
Iago: Yes, O Mighty Evil One!

Jafar: How many times do I have to kill you, boy?

Genie: [as a group of cheerleaders] Rick 'em, rack 'em, rock 'em, rake! Stick that sword into that snake!
Jafar: [as a snake] You stay out of thisss!
Genie: [weakly] Jafar, Jafar, he's our man. If he can't do it, GREAT!

Princess Jasmine: Father, I choose Prince Ali!
Jafar: Prince Ali left.
Aladdin: [standing in the doorway to the balcony] Better check your crystal ball again, Jafar!

Sultan: [hypnotized] Jasmine.
Princess Jasmine: Oh, Father. I just had the most wonderful time. I'm so happy.
Sultan: [hypnotized] You should be, Jasmine. I have chosen a husband for you.
Princess Jasmine: What?
Sultan: [hypnotized] You will wed Jafar.
[the other door opens and reveals Jafar and Iago]
Jafar: You're speechless, I see. A fine quality in a wife.

Jafar: [from inside the lamp] Get your blasted beak out of my face!
Iago: Oh, shut up, you moron!
Jafar: Don't tell me to shut up!
Genie: [taking the lamp off Aladdin] Allow me. Ten thousand years in a Cave of Wonders ought to chill him out!
[flicks them into the distance]

Jafar: You are late.
Gazeem: A thousand apologies, Oh Patient One.

Jafar: You're speechless, I see. A fine quality in a wife.

Princess Jasmine: [to Jafar] At least some good will come of my being forced to marry. When I am Queen, I will have the power to get rid of you.
Sultan: Well, now. That's nice. All settled then. Now, Jasmine, getting back to this suitor business. Jasmine? Jasmine!
[the Sultan notices that Jasmine is running out of the room, and runs after her]
Jafar: [scowls in their direction] If only I had gotten that lamp!
Iago: [mocking Jasmine] "I will have the power to get rid of you." Dahhh! To think we gotta keep kissing up to that chump, and his chump daughter, for the rest of our lives.
Jafar: No, Iago. Only until she finds a chump husband. Then she'll have us banished. Or beheaded.
Jafar, Iago: Ew.
Iago: Oh, wait a minute, wait a minute! Jafar, what if you were the chump husband?
Jafar: What?
Iago: Okay, okay. You marry the princess, all right? And and, uh, you. Then you become the sultan!
Jafar: Marry the shrew. I become sultan. The idea has merit.
Iago: Yes, merit. Yes! And then, we drop papa-in-law and the little woman off a cliff.
[he dives off Jafar's staff headfirst, then hits the ground]
Iago: "Yah. Ker-splat!"
Jafar: [laughs] I love the way your foul little mind works!
[both laugh evilly]

Jafar: [disguised as a prisoner] You've heard of the golden rule, haven't you? Whoever has the gold makes the rules.

Aladdin: Are you afraid to fight me yourself, you cowardly snake?
Jafar: A snake, am I? Perhaps you'd like to see how snakelike I can be!
[he turns into a giant snake]

Iago: I can't take it anymore! If I gotta choke down on one more of those moldy, disgusting crackers. Bam! Whack!
Jafar: Calm yourself, Iago.
Iago: And then I'd grab him around the head. Whack, whack!
Jafar: Soon I will be sultan, not that addlepated twit.
Iago: And then I stuff the crackers down his throat. Ha ha.

Iago: [taking Genie's lamp] Boy, Jafar's gonna be happy to see you.
Jafar: [he switches to Jafar's voice] Excellent work, Iago.
Iago: Ah, go on.
Jafar: [again] No, really. On a scale of one to ten, you are an eleven.
Iago: Oh, Jafar, you're too kind. I'm embarrassed. I'm blushing.

["Snake" Jafar has Aladdin in a tight squeeze]
Jafar: You little fool. You thought you could defeat the most powerful being on Earth.
Iago: Squeeze him, Jafar. Squeeze him like a- Awk!
[Genie elbows Iago and knocks him into the air]
Jafar: Without the Genie, boy, you're nothing.
Aladdin: The Genie... The Genie! The Genie has more power than you'll ever have!
Jafar: What?
Aladdin: He gave you your power. He can take it away.
Genie: Al, what're you doing? Why are you bringing me into this?
Aladdin: Face it, Jafar. You're still just second best!
Jafar: [slightly shocked] You're right. His power does exceed my own. But not for long.

Jafar: [hypnotizing the Sultan with his snake staff] You will order the Princess to marry me.
Sultan: [hypnotized] I... will order... the Princess... to...
[suddenly breaks out of the trance]
Sultan: But you're so old!
Jafar: [shoving his staff into the Sultan's face again] The Princess *will* marry me!

Sultan: [of "Prince Ali Ababwa"] Jasmine will like this one.
Aladdin: And I'm pretty sure I'll like Princess Jasmine.
Jafar: Your Highness, no! I must intercede on Jasmine's behalf. This boy is no different from the others. What makes him think he is worthy of the Princess?
Aladdin: Your Majesty, I am Prince Ali Ababwa. Just let her meet me. I will win your daughter.
Princess Jasmine: How dare you? All of you! Standing around deciding my future? I am not a prize to be won!

[when Gazeem tries to steal the lamp from the Cave of Wonders, the latter swallows him whole]
Iago: I can't believe it! I just don't believe it! We're never gonna get ahold of that stupid lamp! Just forget it! Look at this. Look at this. I'm so ticked off that I'm molting.
Jafar: Patience, Iago, patience. Gazeem was obviously less than worthy.
Iago: Oh, there's a big surprise! That's an incredib... I think I'm gonna have a heart attack and die from that surprise! What are we gonna do? We got a big problem here, a big... Mmph!
[Jafar grabs Iago's beak to shut him up]
Jafar: Yes. Only one may enter. I must find this one, this... diamond in the rough.

Jafar: Just... where did you say you were from?
Aladdin: [as Prince Ali Ababwa] Oh, uh... uh, much farther than you've traveled, I'm sure.
Jafar: Try me.

Jafar: Trust me, my pungent friend. You'll get what's coming to you.
Iago: What's coming to you. Awk!

Aladdin: [hanging from the entrance of the Cave of Wonders] Help me out!
Jafar: [in disguise] Throw me the lamp!
Aladdin: I can't hold on! Give me your hand!
Jafar: First give me the lamp!
[Aladdin does so]
Jafar: [laughs triumphantly] Yes! At last!
[he grabs Aladdin's wrist]
Aladdin: What're you doing?
Jafar: Giving you your reward - your eternal reward!
[he pulls out a dagger and is about to stab Aladdin; Abu bites his arm, forcing him to drop the dagger; Jafar then throws Aladdin and Abu back down the Cave, just as it closes]
Jafar: [chuckles, removing his disguise] It's mine. It's all mine. I...
[he searches for the lamp, but can't find it]
Jafar: Where is it? No! Noooooo!

Jafar: I think it's time to say goodbye to Prince Abubu.

Genie: [as he is being released] You know, Al, I'm getting really...
[notices Jafar]
Genie: I don't think you're him.
Genie: [reading a script] Tonight the part of Al will be played by a tall, dark and sinister ugly man.
Jafar: I am your master now!
[crushes Genie under his foot]
Genie: [muffled] I was afraid of that.
Jafar: Genie, grant me my first wish. I wish to rule on high, as Sultan!

Sultan: It's this suitor business. Jasmine refuses to choose a husband. I'm at my wits' end.
Iago: Awk! Wits' end!
Sultan: Oh.
[laughs and pulls out a cracker]
Sultan: Have a cracker, pretty Polly.
[Iago gasps and shakes his head. Sultan stuffs the cracker into Iago's mouth]
Jafar: [laughs as Iago chokes] Your Majesty certainly has a way with dumb animals.
[Iago gives Jafar an angry look]

[Aladdin has tricked Jafar into wishing to be a more powerful genie than Genie]
Jafar: The universe is mine to command! To control!
Aladdin: Not so fast, Jafar! Aren't you forgetting something?
Jafar: Huh?
Aladdin: You wanted to be a genie? You got it!
[cufflinks form on Jafar's wrists]
Jafar: What?
Aladdin: And everything that goes with it.
[Aladdin holds up a black genie lamp, which sucks Jafar in]
Jafar: No! No!
Iago: I'm getting out of here!
Aladdin: Phenomenal cosmic powers...
[Iago tries to flee, but Jafar grabs him]
Iago: Come on, you're the genie. I don't want, I don't...!
[both Jafar and Iago disappear in the lamp]
Aladdin: ...itty bitty living space.
Genie: Al, you little genius, you!

Iago: Ladies and gentlemen, a warm Agrabah welcome for Sorcerer Jafar!
Jafar: Now where were we? Ah, yes abject humiliation!
[He zaps Jasmine and Sultan with his staff, and they both bow to him. Rajah comes running at him]
Jafar: Down, boy!
[He zaps Rajah, and the tiger turns into a kitten. Rajah meows]
Jafar: Oh princess
[lifts Jasmine's chin with his staff]
Jafar: there's someone I'm dying to introduce you to.
Aladdin: [Flying towards him on Carpet] Jafar! Get your hands off her!
Jafar: [zaps Aladdin, Carpet flies away. Singing] Prince Ali, yes, it is he, but not as you know him. Read my lips and come to grips with reality.
Jafar: Yes, meet a blast from your past. Whose lies were too good to last! Say hello to your precious Prince Ali!
[zaps Ali back to Aladdin as he says it]
Iago: [mockingly] Or should we say Aladdin?
Princess Jasmine: [shocked gasp] Ali?
Aladdin: Jasmine, I tried to tell you. I just.
Jafar: [still singing] So Ali turns out to be merely Aladdin.
Jafar: Just a con, need I go on? Take it from me, his personality flaws, give me adequate cause,
[sends Aladdin and Abu in a pillar, Carpet flies in after them]
Jafar: to send him packing on a one way trip so his prospects take a terminal dip, his assets frozen, the venue chosen, is the ends of the earth.
Jafar: [sends the pillar in the air]
Jafar: Whoopee! So long!
Iago: Goodbye. See ya.
Jafar: [sings] Ex-Prince Ali!
[laughs maniacally]
Aladdin: Abu? Abu! Oh, this is all my fault. I should have freed the Genie when I had the chance.
Aladdin: Abu! Are you okay?
Abu the Monkey: [shivers] Uh-huh.
Aladdin: I'm sorry, Abu. I made a mess of everything, somehow. I gotta go back and set things right. Yeah! All right! Now, back to Agrabah! Let's go!

The Return of Jafar (1994) (V)
Jafar: If it weren't for *me*, you'd still be in a cage at the bazaar squawking, "Polly want a cracker!"

Iago: I've got sand in places I didn't even know I had!
Jafar: [heard from inside his lamp] Spare me your prattling, Iago. Are we out yet?
Iago: [mimcking Jafar] 'Are we out yet? Are we out yet?' Yes, we're out!

Abis Mal, the Chief of the Thieves: [hesitating on freeing Jafar] Wait. How do I know that these things won't disappear once I set you free?
Jafar: [losing it] The more pressing question is, how will you stay alive if you don't?

Jafar: That was two wishes. Take your time with the third.
Jafar: Or you will wish you had never been born.

Jafar: Iago, you betrayed me and allied yourself with my enemies! Then you turned on them as soon at it was in your best interests. That's what I love about you. You're so perfectly predictable. A villain through and through!

Abis Mal, the Chief of the Thieves: I got it! I could wish for the famed treasure chest of King Malakhan!
[Jafar makes the chest appear with Abis Mal in it, then makes it disappear]
Jafar: Oh, I am dreadfully sorry. I thought that was your wish. Are you quite all right?
Abis Mal, the Chief of the Thieves: [agitated] No, I am not quite all right.
Jafar: Wonderful! Good to see all is well.

Blue Genie: [Thinking he destroyed Jafar] Hahahaha! Who's laughing now?
Jafar: Hahahahaa!
Jafar: Why, I believe it's me.
Abu the Monkey: Argh!

Jafar: [singing] Men cower at the power in my pinky / My thumb is number one on every list! But if you're not convinced that I'm invincible / put me to the test / I'd love to lay this rivalry to rest!

Jafar: [laughs sinisterly] Good help is so hard to find these days, isn't it, Aladdin?

Jafar: The street rat? Still alive? No!

[after Iago has knocked the lamp into the molten magma]
Jafar: My lamp! No!

Jafar: [bellowing at first, then softening down] You will now release me! So that I may have my revenge.
Iago: [pulling himself loose from the sand, then shaking himself off] Yeah, yeah, when I'm good and ready.
Jafar: Do as I say, you worthless pipsqueak!
Iago: You know something? You're nothing without me.
Jafar: What?
Iago: Who comes up with all the good ideas? Me! Who does all the work? Me!

Abis Mal, the Chief of the Thieves: [while Jafar slashes the Sultan's turban] Hey, that was a nice hat. I could've worn that hat.
Jafar: We need this for our plan.
Abis Mal, the Chief of the Thieves: Couldn't we use another hat for the plan?
Jafar: Oh, no. The Sultan's turban and this dagger are exactly what we need to seal Aladdin's doom.

Jafar: [to Aladdin] You shall never have my lamp, and there is no one to save you this time!
Iago: [swooping down, shouting] Hey, Jafar! Shut up!

Jafar: [after he demands Abis Mal to take him and the lamp to Agrabah, which makes Abis Mal speak nervous gibberish] I suppose I am a bit too much for his limited mind.

Jafar: [he and Abis Mal appear at the sunken treasure ship of Coeur du Mer] Poor, sweet baby. Aren't we enjoying our wish?
Abis Mal, the Chief of the Thieves: [muffled, as an octupus wraps one of its tentacles around Abis Mal] No.
Jafar: Perhaps you wish me to return you to the desert?
Abis Mal, the Chief of the Thieves: [screeching] Yes.
Jafar: Very well.

Jafar: [to Abis Mal] Let's not be too hasty, my simple minded friend. It's not enough that we simply destroy Aladdin. After all, there are things so much worse than death!
Jafar: [laughs menacingly]
Abis Mal, the Chief of the Thieves: [smiles evilly]

Aladdin 'Al': Give it up Jafar! We're obviously too much for you to handle!
Jafar: You! You're a fool to challenge me! I am all powerful!
Aladdin 'Al': Some all powerful. You can't even get rid of a lowly street rat!
Jafar: A problem I need to rectify right NOW!
Princess Jasmine: Aladdin!

Kingdom Hearts (2002) (VG)
Hades: That little squirt took down that Heartless! Who'd have thought it?
Jafar: Such is the power of the Keyblade. The child's strength is not his own.
Ursula: Why don't we turn him into a Heartless? That'll settle things quick enough.
Captain Hook: And the brat's friends are the king's lackeys. Swoogle me eyes, they're all bilge rats by the look of them.
Oogie Boogie: You're no prize yourself.
Captain Hook: Shut up!
Maleficent: Enough. The Keyblade has chosen him. Will it be he who conquers the darkness? Or will the darkness swallow him? Either way, he could be quite useful...

Maleficent: Don't steep yourself in darkness too long. The Heartless consume the careless.
Jafar: Your concern is touching, but hardly necessary.

Jafar: So sorry, boy. I'm afraid your second wish has been denied.

Jafar: [Sora's party had defeated Clayton] What drew the Heartless to that world?
Maleficent: The hunter lured them there. It was his lust for power that was the bait. But it seems the bait was too tasty for his own good.
Oogie Boogie: [laughs] Yeah, he got chomped instead!
Jafar: A weak-hearted fool like him stood no chance against the Heartless. But the boy is a problem. He found one of the Keyholes.
Maleficent: Fear not. It will take him ages to find the rest. Besides, he remains blissfully unaware of our other plan.
Ursula: Yes, the princesses...
Maleficent: They're falling into our hands, one by one.
[Alice is revealed, having been captured]
Maleficent: Speaking of which...

Mickey's House of Villains (2001) (V)

Cruella De Vil: Oh, Halloween at the House of Mouse, all treats and no tricks.
Cruella De Vil: If this were my house, I'd run things differently
Ursula: Add a splash of evil?
Captain Hook: Pillage and Plunger?
Iago: Blah, blah, blah. Every year it's the same thing...
Iago: ...all talk and no play, what a bunch of dull villains.
Jafar: Well, this year will be different,
[Jafar holds a small hourglass]
Jafar: I've got a trick for Mickey Mouse. But you'll have to wait till midnight.
[Jafar laughs]
Jafar: [Cruella, Ursula and Hook get excited]

Iago: Say, isn't it time for your Halloween trick?
Jafar: Patients, Iago,
Jafar: [Jafar gets the hourglass again] Midnight nears.

Iago: Say, isn't it time for your Halloween trick?
Jafar: Patience, Iago,
Jafar: [Jafar gets the hourglass again] Midnight nears.

Astrologer: But she loves the blind man.
Jaffar: Do you call the lisping of two children in the garden love? Love she has yet to learn and I have yet to teach her.

Jaffar: Strange how an unpleasant child can make a decent dog!

Jafar: Death and I have already met. Send him my regards.
[Snaps the guard's neck]

The Jabberwocky: You're already so afraid. And I haven't even opened the door yet.
Jafar: What door?
The Jabberwocky: The one... inside your head. Everyone has a door like this where you keep all your most terrifying thoughts. Your greatest fears.
Jafar: I've been around dark magic most of my life. You'll have no luck getting inside my head.
The Jabberwocky: I'm not worried about getting inside your head. Don't you see? I'm already in there.

Dr. Lydgate: A talking rabbit? That's madness.

Jafar: Of course you do, but how many of them escape in the company of a talking rabbit?

"Once Upon a Time in Wonderland: And They Lived... (#1.13)" (2014)

Jafar: I imagine you must want to kill me for what I did.
Knave of Hearts: Why don't you open this door and we'll find out?
Old Prisoner: [to Jafar] Haven't you tortured him enough? Show the boy some mercy!
Jafar: Mercy? And I suppose you'd be the expert on that subject.
Old Prisoner: I've learned the error of my ways. But I'm waiting for you to learn anything at all!
