The Secret of NIMH (1982)
Mrs. Brisby: Auntie Shrew what's going on?
Auntie Shrew: Indeed!
Mrs. Brisby: Please come back inside.
Auntie Shrew: Not for a king's ransom. I just have one thing to say
[pointing at Martin]
Auntie Shrew: that child is a brat.
Mrs. Brisby: Yes, I will speak to him.
Auntie Shrew: I came here to inform you that the frost is off the ground, and moving day is at hand. Prepare to move your very very odd family. Good day.

Auntie Shrew: Cast not pearls before swine, I always say, and that includes insolent piglets!

Auntie Shrew: Run! The plow is here! Run for your lives! Run! It's moving day!

Jeremy: You can't leave me here like this. There's a ca-cat... there's a ca-ca... he's very big, and he might... and he might... Ungh!
Auntie Shrew: Good! Good riddance. Teresa! Martin! That's the least you deserve.
Teresa: Auntie.
Auntie Shrew: There you are! Keep an eye on this hooligan, make sure he doesn't get away until I can get help. And as for you, you black buzzard, I wouldn't try anything. I shall return.

Auntie Shrew: The Great Owl would know what to do about this. You must go see him.
Mrs. Brisby: I couldn't do that. Owls eat mice.
Auntie Shrew: Well, my child, show a little courage. We're fighting for Timmy's life.

Auntie Shrew: Why me, that I alone should be responsible for the welfare of the entire field? It's monstrous!

[Mrs. Brisby listens to the farmer start the tractor]
Auntie Shrew: What did I tell you? Moving day.
Mrs. Brisby: It can't be.
Auntie Shrew: It certainly can. I don't supposed you've packed.
Mrs. Brisby: What about Timmy? The chill in the air could kill him.
Auntie Shrew: Well, child, that tractor surely will. For the last time, get your children out of here before it's too late.

Martin: I'm not afraid of the dark!
Auntie Shrew: Martin!
Martin: I'm not afraid of the farmer!
Auntie Shrew: I can't hear!
Martin: I'm not afraid of Dragon. I'm not even afraid of... of the Great Owl!
Auntie Shrew: Oh, hush up!
Martin: Ah, you hush up!
Auntie Shrew: Precocious monster!
Martin: Bossy bullfrog!
Auntie Shrew: Spoiled brat!
Martin: Loudmouth!

Jeremy: Well, uh, let me explain! Oh, what a lovely hat you're wearing!
Auntie Shrew: Don't you sweet-talk me!

Auntie Shrew: You think the world owes you a living, right?
Jeremy: Right!
Auntie Shrew: Wrong!
Jeremy: Wrong! Oh!

Auntie Shrew: I shall... return!
