Mrs. Marcus: Will you SHUT UP AND LISTEN?
Sylvester Marcus: Mama, it's all right. Everything's gonna be all right, Mama. Your baby's coming to get ya. You just sit there. Sit there, relax, take it easy.
Mrs. Marcus: [On the phone and the camera's still on Sylvester] Sylvester...
Sylvester Marcus: I'm coming to get you, Mom!

Mrs. Marcus: So he's coming here. And I'm not to worry about a thing, because "everything is going to be all right!"
Mrs. Marcus: [to Emmeline] Exactly like your father: a big, stupid, muscle-headed moron!

Sylvester Marcus: I'm coming. That's what I'm here for. That's why you had me, Mama, to save you.

Mrs. Marcus: "No matter what you've all done today, you're really not criminals". Ha! Of all the snooty, patronizing...

Monica Crump: Well, we could tell them that we're here on an archeological expedition.
Melville Crump: [annoyed] Aah!
Sylvester Marcus: We don't tell them anything. We tell them to hit the road or we beat their brains in!

[Pike and Sylvester are digging into a hole that suddenly becomes too close]
Sylvester Marcus: Wait a minute, wait a minute. There's not enough room, Man, you're bugging me. You're bugging me.
Lennie Pike: What are you talking about 'bugging'?
Sylvester Marcus: Cut out, cut out.
Lennie Pike: What's this 'cut out' talk?
Sylvester Marcus: Out, baby. Out, baby. Out!
Lennie Pike: Don't call me a baby!

J. Algernon Hawthorne: Have a care, that chap's run absolutely amok!

Benjy Benjamin: [in a hospital in bandages and casts] It's all your fault. It's all your fault right from the beginning to the end.
J. Algernon Hawthorne: You know, even for a policeman, your behavior was ruddy outrageous.
Sylvester Marcus: Yeah, you could have taken a fair share like the rest of us, but no. You had to go and wrap up the whole scene, baby.
Ding Bell: We had 350,000 bucks right in our hands.
Melville Crump: 14 into $350,000...
Ding Bell: [groans] Oh, shut up!

[last scene: Mrs. Marcus, with Emmeline and Monica in tow, enter the hospital where all the men are hospitalized, right after Benjy throws a banana peel on the floor]
Mrs. Marcus: Now see here, you idiots, it's all your fault, because if you hadn't...
[Mrs. Marcus slips on the banana peel and falls back-first on the floor]
Sylvester Marcus: Mama!
[all the hospitalized men, except Sylvester and Captain Culpeper, burst out laughing uproariously as Mrs. Marcus is put on a stretcher and taken away]
Mrs. Marcus: Don't you dare touch me! Get away from me! Let me go! Leave me alone...!
[Captain Culpeper joins the laughter]
