"Lost in Space: The Magic Mirror (#1.21)" (1966)
Judy Robinson: A full-length mirror, just what we needed. Which reminds me, you promised to help me fix my hair.
Penny Robinson: Oh, no. Not again.
Judy Robinson: Thought I'd try it a little bit higher on top with perhaps a softer curl.
Penny Robinson: You and your hairdos. I'm gonna cut all my hair off, just like Will's.
Judy Robinson: Go ahead. Be ugly. Who cares?

Judy Robinson: I wish you'd fix yourself up once in awhile. I don't like to see you going around, well, acting like a boy. You know what I mean.
Penny Robinson: What's wrong with boys?
Judy Robinson: Well, nothing, but you could be so beautiful.

Penny Robinson: Oh, I'm sorry, Dr. Smith. Did I scare you?

"Lost in Space: The Challenge (#1.22)" (1966)
Quano: I do not speak to weak and worthless girls.
Penny Robinson: Why, you conceited, dirty-faced little boy! You're nothing but a bully, a half-pint bully!

Will Robinson: If no one else needs me, I'm going hunting for rock specimens.
Quano: I, too, am going hunting. Shall we go together?
Will Robinson: Sure. Why not?
Penny Robinson: I'm coming along, too.
Quano: You will stay! You were not asked.
Quano: [to Will] Let us go.

Penny Robinson: Oh, that horrid, little boy!
Prof. John Robinson: Well, I don't think Quano'd mind being called "horrid," but I think he'd object most strenuously to being called a little boy.

Penny Robinson: Can you imagine Quano believing that girls are worthless?
Maj. Don West: Well, Penny, I have a strong feeling he'll change his opinion when he grows up.
Quano: [who's come upon them unnoticed] I like them now, but it is not manly to pay too much attention to them.

Mr. Nobody: E-cho?
Penny Robinson: Only... where does it come from? Where?
Mr. Nobody: Where! Where! Where. Echo. Echo!. Echo. Where. Echo. Hey! Hey! Where! Heyyyyyyyy!

Mr. Nobody: I remember rocks. Rocks bubbling.
Penny Robinson: These? But... but this is granite. It takes millions and millions of years to... You mean you're that old, already?

Penny Robinson: Oh Mother, I thought you were the only one. I thought you really believed me, at least just a little bit.
Maureen Robinson: Wha... Penny! Penny, of course I do! Now, I still do, and you know why? Well, I'll tell you a secret. When I was a little girl, I had a very special friend, too. His name was Mr. Noodles and he lived inside my teddy bear.
Penny Robinson: What?
Maureen Robinson: It's true. I know that you're the only one who'd understand how very very real Mr. Noodles was to me.
Penny Robinson: Oh, Mother, that's the silliest thing I ever heard of! How can ANYONE live inside a teddy bear?

[last lines]
Judy Robinson: [while everyone looks in awe at the transformation of Mr. Nobody into a stellar display] Don, what is pure cosmic force? What does it turn into?
Maj. Don West: I don't know. There are a lot of things iI don't know.

Dr. Zachary Smith: The condition you find most cheering.
Maj. Don West: [enjoying this greatly] Not at all. As a matter of fact, when I compute the fuel-to-weight ratio, which we already know is going to be very critical, I'll do my best to include us all.
Dr. Zachary Smith: [bitterly] I'm deeply touched.
Penny Robinson: Does that mean I can take the bloop?
Dr. Zachary Smith: How can you even think of taking that beast when I may have to remain?
Will Robinson: I think THE BLOOP should go!
Penny Robinson: So do I!
Maj. Don West: Well, we don't have a capsule for the bloop so, uh, that's out of the question.
Will Robinson: I'll BUILD her a capsule!
Maj. Don West: [heartily shaking hands with Will] That's a deal! You build a capsule for the bloop and she goes!
Maj. Don West: [sadly to Smith] Of course, that cuts the available weight still further. Oh, I'm sorry, Dr. Smith, but things don't look very good for you at all.
Dr. Zachary Smith: Bloop, indeed!

The Keeper: I see you've changed your minds about leaving.
Will Robinson: [mesmerized] We're sorry, sir. We really want to stay with you.
Penny Robinson: [mesmerized] For always, Mr. Keeper. Always.
The Keeper: And so you shall, for always.

Will Robinson: How do you like it?
Penny Robinson: Before I answer, you better tell me what it is.
Will Robinson: Didn't you ever read Tom Sawyer or Huck Finn? It's a slingshot. Back in the eighteen and nineteenth century almost every boy made one of these.
Penny Robinson: What for?
Will Robinson: To carry with his penknife and marbles, I guess.


"Lost in Space: The Space Croppers (#1.25)" (1966)
[a lowly howl is heard]
Dr. Zachary Smith: What was that?

Dr. Zachary Smith: Oh, yes, there can. Look!
Will Robinson: All I see are the two moons, and we've seen them before.
Dr. Zachary Smith: But never so bursting with fullness.
Penny Robinson: Is that bad?
Dr. Zachary Smith: Bad, my dear child? It portends the very worst of evil happenings, the night the witches dance and the misbegotten creatures of doom walk the earth, when the dark and dismal voices...
[another lowly howl interrupts]

Dr. Zachary Smith: [tasting Judy's bean gravy] Mmm! Delicious.
Judy Robinson: I added some wolf's foot that I found.
Dr. Zachary Smith: Ugh!
Judy Robinson: What's wrong, Doctor?
Dr. Zachary Smith: "Wolf's foot?"
Judy Robinson: Oh, that's just the name of an herb that grows on this planet.
Maureen Robinson: It's sort of like, um, oh, club moss. It really gives the sauce a nice tang.
Dr. Zachary Smith: It gave me a very nice TURN.
Penny Robinson: That's because we saw a REAL werewolf tonight.

Dr. Zachary Smith: Now I've heard everything. This cannot be true. A criminal is sleeping in my bed, wearing my clothes. He'll probably murder us all!
Penny Robinson: Oh, Dr. Smith, you always exaggerate so. Ohan isn't THAT kind of a criminal. He's... well I... guess you call him like sort of, um... an international galactic burglar.
Dr. Zachary Smith: Oh, this is too much. I feel faint.

Dr. Zachary Smith: Oh, death, where's thy sting?
Disk: Foolish, foolish man. You had everything necessary for happiness, and you gave it all up for what? A cold, unfeeling metal.
Dr. Zachary Smith: I know I deserve to be punished, but not Penny. The child is innocent. She shouldn't have to suffer because of my folly.
Disk: You should have thought of that earlier.
Dr. Zachary Smith: I know, and now it's too late. What a miserable wretch I am.
Disk: Perhaps you have learned a lesson, Dr. Smith?
Dr. Zachary Smith: Oh, I have. I have.
Disk: Then, for once, I will make an exception. I will spare you.
Dr. Zachary Smith: I don't care about myself. It's only Penny I want saved. Where are you? Where are you? Don't leave. You've got to make Penny normal again! Oh.
Penny Robinson: I'm fine, Dr. Smith.


"Lost in Space: The Galaxy Gift (#2.30)" (1967)
Penny Robinson: [On her knees] Oh, please, sir. Do not throw us out into the raging storm.
The Robot: Because, baby it's cold out there.
Dr. Zachary Smith: Ohh! That does it. I resign. How can we put on a serious play when this metallic ham will not follow the script?
Will Robinson: This play doesn't need a director. It needs a referee. Now, when you're all ready to take this seriously, call me!
The Robot: Do not leave, Will Robinson. We need you.
Dr. Zachary Smith: We don't need the writer or the director. All we need is the star - me. Penny, let's try it from my entrance. I will knock, and you will answer.
The Robot: What was my line again?
Dr. Zachary Smith: "Just on moment!"
The Robot: Oh, yes, now I remember.
Penny Robinson: Waiting for the knock at the door, Dr. Smith.

Judy Robinson: A meteor crater.
Maureen Robinson: Penny.
Penny Robinson: What else could it be?
Maureen Robinson: Dr. Smith?
Dr. Zachary Smith: A shell hole!

Penny Robinson: Oh, he's darling. May I have him?
Maureen Robinson: No, you may not.
Maj. Don West: Come on. Come on, fellow. Beat it.
[the Gloop walks away]
Maureen Robinson: Penny, you may have it if you wish.
Penny Robinson: No, Mom. I don't want him. Really, I don't.
Maureen Robinson: Get it for her, will you, Don? It's all right dear. You may have it.
Maj. Don West: [Picking up the Alien Gloop] Come on, Charlie. Looks like you found yourself a home.
Penny Robinson: [Holding the Alien Gloop] I'm gonna call you Debbie.
Maj. Don West: Come on, kids. Let's go. Come on.

Penny Robinson: Oh, you should hear them, Dad. They're absolutely wonderful. Bach, and Mozart, and Beethoven...
Prof. John Robinson: Well, I won't argue with your choice but, uh, do you have anything there by Deceit?
Penny Robinson: Deceit? Don't think I've ever heard of THAT composer.
Prof. John Robinson: Oh, perhaps you don't recognize the name. Uh, maybe these names will help - Cheat? Lie? Trick? D'you recognize the composer or do I have to go on?
