James and the Giant Peach (1996)
Spider: [eating the peach] Mmmmm. Better than ladybugs.
Ladybug: What?
Spider: Excuse me.
Earthworm: It's not dirt...
[takes a bite of the peach]
Earthworm: But it's not bad.

Earthworm: The sun's so hot! I'm roasted!

Earthworm: She won't be coming down here with the spray. She'll be coming down here with a shovel. It happened to m' brother. Split him right down the middle. Now I have two half-brothers.

[Spiker and Sponge are outside the peach, looking for James]
Aunt Spiker: Where are you? You little worm!
Earthworm: AAAHHHHHH!
James: Not you, ME!

James: Whenever I had a problem, my parents told me to look at it another way.
Earthworm: *How*? First, I was bird bait, and then I was *shark* bait.
James: That's true, but you could say that you gave us wings to fly, and that you defeated a giant shark single-handedly.
Earthworm: No-handedly.
James: You're a hero.
Earthworm: I am. I'm Wonderworm!

[James has discovered he has changed]
James: It's like he said: Marvelous things will happen.
Glowworm: Did he say, "Marvelous pigs in satin"?
Grasshopper: No, dear lady.
[He takes out a megaphone and speaks through it]
Grasshopper: Marvelous things will happen.
[to James]
Grasshopper: Poor Glowworm, she's a little deaf.
Earthworm: I, on the other hand, have exquisite hearing.
Centipede: Oh, yeah? Well, listen to this...
[He spits into his many hands and grabs the megaphone and yells into it]
Centipede: LET'S GET OUTTA HERE!

Centipede: I've sailed all the five seas. From the land of Bora Bora to the icy shores of Tripoli. Commodore Centipede, they used to call me.
Grasshopper: Seven.
Centipede: Huh?
Grasshopper: There are seven seas, and Tripoli is in the Sub-Tropics, Commodore!
Centipede: Trim the sails!
Ladybug: There are no sails.
Centipede: Start the engines!
Earthworm: There are no engines.
Centipede: I can't work with this miserable crew!

Earthworm: We gotta get out of here. We'll be turned into living statues.
Grasshopper: *Dead* living statues!

Earthworm: Remember what your parents said, James... Try looking at it another way!

[in the darkness]
Earthworm: [Centipede pinches him] Ow! What was that?
Centipede: Sorry, I thought you were the spider.
Grasshopper: [Miss Spider hits him] Ouch. What was *that*?
Miss Spider: Excuse, I thought you were the Centipede.

Old Green Grasshopper: Oh this is all my fault.
Earthworm: Hey don't take all the credit, I helped too!

Earthworm: Great! We'll be stuck here until we starve and die.
The Grasshopper: Highly improbable.
Ladybug: Well, that's encouraging.
The Grasshopper: We are far more likely to drown.

The Grasshopper: No-one is going to squoosh you, old boy. You're six feet long now.
Earthworm: Bigger targets.
