[Orville has skidded face-first on the runway]
Bernard: Are... Are- are you hurt, sir?
Orville: Nope. One of my better landings, bud.

Miss Bianca: [watching Orville fly] Doesn't he fly beautifully? And you wanted to take the train, you fraidy cat.
Bernard: Fraidy cat? No, uh... it's just that I like trains. I mean, they serve Roquefort, and...
[Orville flies in too low]
Bernard: [gasp] Pull up, pull up!

[passing through the zoo, Bernard is scared by a lion's roar]
Miss Bianca: What did you do to make him so mad?
Bernard: Nothing, he's just a... just a grumpy old lion.
Miss Bianca: Well, after all, waking him up in the middle of the night. Wouldn't you be grumpy too?

Orville: Say, bud, read the checklist to me.

Orville: [Adjusting goggles] Check.
Bernard: "Wing flaps down."

Mice: [singing in the background as a flashback] R-E-S... Rescue Aid Society, heads held high, touch the sky, you mean everything to me...
Miss Bianca: But, Bernard, the Society's counting on us. We can't quit now. Oh, and that little girl. We just have to rescue her.
Mice: [singing continues] R-E-S-C-U-E Rescue Aid Society, heads held high, touch the sky, you mean everything to me...

[after escaping Medusa and Snoops]
Bernard: Are you- Are you all right, dear?
Miss Bianca: Why, she- she tried to kill us. That, that, that terrible woman! Oh, if I was only a ten-foot mouse, I'd show her.

[repeated line]
Bernard: Sure wish we'd taken the train!

Bernard: We gotta find her, and help her.
Rufus: Yeah, but two little mice! Wha - what can you do?

Miss Bianca: Captain, you fly beautifully. It's just like being on a "roller scoater".
Bernard: He just went through a red light.
Miss Bianca: I do that all the time, darling. Now come on, stop worrying.

[inside the cave, gurgling sounds are heard from a large hole]
Bernard: What-wh-wh-what was that?
Penny: That's where the water comes in. Oooh, I'm afraid to go over there.
Bernard: Well, if I were a pirate, that's just where I'd hide the Devil's Eye. Eh, I'll go over and- check it out.
[as Bernard approaches the hole, a loud gurgling sound emanates from it; he starts to back away]
Bernard: Come-
[clears throat]
Bernard: come to think of it, If I was a pirate, I wouldn't, I wouldn't hide anything back there.

Bernard: [about the seat belts] Miss Bianca, make sure it's fastened good and tight.
Miss Bianca: I can't. It'll wrinkle my dress.

Bernard, Miss Bianca: Cat!
Rufus: Now, look here, you two. If anyone found out that mice have moved in, I'd get kicked out, lose my job.

Rufus: [while stretching his legs] Wh- I- I'm too old to be chasing mice.

Bernard: [Bernard sees their flight should have left already] Flight leaves... 6:45. Oh, no. We missed the flight. Miss Bianca, if you hadn't...
Miss Bianca: Oh, come on. You worry too much. You know that flights are always late.
Orville: [Through radio communication] Albatross flight 13 to tower. Albatross 13
Miss Bianca: Now, what did I tell you? We're lucky, Mr. Bernard.
Bernard: Luck? Flight 13? Maybe we'd better take the train.
Orville: [Through radio] Wake up! Dab-drat it, somebody answer down there! Get off the dime! Hello? Hello? Is anybody down there?
Bernard: [answering] Uh, he-hello?
Orville: [Through radio] Where the tuck have you been? Oh, you lazy knucklehead.
Bernard: Well, we just got here, sir. You see, my co-agent insisted on packing her, uh...
Orville: Look, bud. Am I clear to land? Traffic up here is thicker than- Wow! Dab-blast, you dirty road-hog! You crazy- Look. What is- You stupid lug-headed...
Miss Bianca: Uh, oh, what did he say, Mr. Bernard?
Bernard: I wouldn't dare repeat it.
Miss Bianca: Well, then give him the permission to land.
Bernard: Uh, Captain? You, uh, you have our permission to land.

Penny: Oh, they'll eat anything.

Penny: [doing an impression of Medusa] Brutus! Nero! Did you let that little brat escape again? You're too soft.
[swinging a broom]
Penny: Wap! Wap!
Bernard: [chuckles] Hey, Penny, that's not bad.
Miss Bianca: [laughs] That's exactly like Medusa.
Penny: [walks like Medusa and imitates her again] Track her down, boys. Bring her back.

Penny: We'll swipe it! I've always wanted to drive it.

Penny: Didn't you bring somebody big with you? Like the police?
Bernard: Uh, no. There's just, uh - the two of us.
Miss Bianca: But if the three of us work together and we have a little faith...
Penny: That's what Rufus said: "Faith makes things turn out right."

Bianca: [chuckles] Why don't you jump the last one?

Miss Bianca: Well, why don't we take the shortcut through the zoo?
Bernard: I don't know... I mean it... could be risky.
Miss Bianca: Oh, come on. Remember our pledge? "Through storm and rain and dark of night - "
Bernard: [takes off his hat; water pools in it] "Never fail to do what's right." All right...

The Rescuers Down Under (1990)
McLeach: It's all over, boy. Your bird's dead. Someone shot her. Shot her, right out of the sky. Bang!
Cody: No!
McLeach: What do you mean no? You calling me a liar? I heard it on the radio this morning, and she could have been mine if it wasn't for you. Now you better get out of here before I change my mind. G'on, git!
Bernard: Why is he letting him go?
Jake: It's gotta be a trick.
McLeach: Too bad about those eggs, eh, Joanna? They won't survive without their mother. Oh, well. Survival of the fittest, I guess.
[Cody runs off]
McLeach: Bingo.

Bernard: [to a razorback] Now, look! I've got a long way to go. You're, you're gonna take me there, and you're not gonna give me any trouble about it, right?
[razorback shakes head]
Bernard: Good! Now git!

Jake: So, um, which way are taking, uh, Suicide Trail through Nightmare Canyon, or the shortcut at Satan's Ridge?
Bernard: Su-Suicide Trail?
Jake: Good choice. More snakes, but less quicksand. Then once you cross Bloodworm Creek, you're scot free, that is until, um... Dead Dingo Pass.
Bernard: [sees that the map has nothing but landscapings] Wa-wa-wait a minute, I don't-I don't see any-any of that-that stuff on the map.

Miss Bianca: Oh, Bernard. You are magnificent. You are absolutely hero of the day.
Bernard: Miss Bianca, before anything else happens... will you marry me?
Miss Bianca: Oh, Bernard! Of course I will!
Jake: Well done, mate.

Wilbur: Wait a minute. What the heck are you doing up here?
Bernard: The kidnapper took the boy and Jake... and Miss Bianca.
Wilbur: Miss Bianca? Miss Bianca's in trouble? Oh, no! That's terrible! We gotta do something. I'm very disappointed in you, Bernard. Hiding under a nest while Bianca's in danger. Let me tell you something, buddy!
Bernard: Wilbur...
Wilbur: You-you-you start searchin' the desert for, and I-I-I'll scan the coastline. Yeah, that's what I'll do.
Bernard: Wilbur...
Wilbur: I'll ask the chicks on the beach to...
Bernard: Wilbur!
Wilbur: Huh? What?
Bernard: Listen. There are some chicks here that need your help.
Wilbur: Really?
[Bernard sits on Marahute's eggs]
Wilbur: Oh, no! Wait a minute. I know what you're thinking, and you're wrong. Don't even- No! Don't look at me like that. You're getting no from me! No! I will not ever sit on those eggs!
[Cut to Wilbur sitting on eggs]
Wilbur: Aw, nuts. I gotta learn to be more assertive. No is no is no. Hey - quit movin' in there.

Bernard: Miss Bianca, from now on, can't we just take the train?

Bernard: [Thinking of his marriage proposal] Bianca, there's something I need to talk to you about...
Miss Bianca: [Unaware of Bernard's plan to propose, she speaks about the upcoming mission] It's all right, Bernard. I already know what you are going to say. Francois told me all about it.
Bernard: Francois? But how did he know?
Miss Bianca: It doesn't matter. I think it's a wonderful idea.
Bernard: You do? You mean, you really want to?
Miss Bianca: I don't think it's a matter of wanting, but a matter of duty.
Bernard: Du-duty? Well, I never thought of it... Well, okay, how does... next April sound?
Miss Bianca: Heavens, no! We must act immediately, tonight!
Bernard: To-tonight? But Bianca, this is so sudden, I mean... don't you at least need... a gown or something?
Miss Bianca: No, just a couple of khaki shorts and some hiking boots.

Wilbur: [over radio] Mugwomp Tower! Mugwomp Tower! This is Albatross 1-3 requesting permision to land. Over!
Jake: Albatross? Let's see.

Jake: Finch, wren, scrub bird, lorikeet, freckled duck, galah, kookaburra, parrot, cockatoo, albatro...
[reacts at its size]
Jake: Alb-Albatross? It-It's a jumbo!
[turns to microphone]
Jake: Negative, 1-3! You'll have to turn back! Our runway isn't long enough for a bird your size!
Wilbur: Not long enough? Look, pal! I can land this thing on a dime!
Bernard: Uh, Wilbur, if the runway isn't long enough...
Wilbur: Listen! You can't let these radar jockeys push you around! Just leave it to me, all right?
Jake: I say it again, mate, our runway is too short!
Wilbur: And I say it again, "mate", I'm comin' in!
Jake: Crazy Yank.

Bernard: [leaps out of the stump where he is hiding from Joanna to attack her upon seeing that McLeach is trying to shoot Cody's rope] Oh, my gosh! I hope I know what I'm doing...
