Grandpa: You've heard it before.
[they all laugh]

Caracticus Potts: Confounded woman! Who does she think she is? Coming in here and telling me how to raise my children! Do I need somebody to tell me how to raise my children? Do I? Hm? No, of course not. Of course not! Hm-hm. Where's my, uh, cardigan?
Jemima: Under your jacket.
Caracticus Potts: Under... Yes. Self-righteous busy body. Well, she won't be bothering us again.
Jemima: But I liked her.
Jeremy: So did I. She was very pretty.
Caracticus Potts: She certainly was. Do you think... Do you think your, uh, father's a... crackpot?

Jemima: Well, it isn't a castle exactly.
Jeremy: That's what Daddy calls it. He says King Alfred used to live there hundreds of years ago.
Truly Scrumptious: And does your Daddy know you aren't in school?

Jeremy: Anyway, he's awful busy.
Truly Scrumptious: Is he? Well, he'll have to find time to see me because I have a few things to say to him.

Truly Scrumptious: What an unusual car.

Jemima: But that's the sound it makes. Listen.

Jeremy: I'm so glad you came. It's much more fun with two grown-ups.

Jeremy: Nasty, horrid, mean old lady!
Jemima: And very ugly!
[Baroness swoons]
