The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T. (1953)
Bart Collins: See? Now do you believe me?
Mr. Zabladowski: We should always believe children. We should even believe their lies.

Mr. Zabladowski: I am no cog; I don't even like the sound of it. I am an independent contractor.

Mr. Zabladowski: [to Bart] Get me a shot of that pickle juice! If those twins want a fight on skates, I'll give 'em one!

Bart Collins: How much are you being paid overtime?
Mr. Zabladowski: Two thousand pastoolas.
Bart Collins: Two thousand WHAT?
Mr. Zabladowski: Two thousand pastoolas. Dr. Terwilliker doesn't pay me in American money - he keeps that for himself. He pays me in pastoolas.
Bart Collins: What are pastoolas?
Mr. Zabladowski: If you must know, the currency here is a little strange. First of all, in the small money comes the drakmids. At the regular, normal rate of exchange, there are 59 drakmids to one silver zlobeck.
Bart Collins: "Zlobeck"?
Mr. Zabladowski: Three silver zlobecks make one golden kratchmuk. A pastoola normally is, uh, 44,000 kratchmuks. But these, they tell me, are not normal times...
Bart Collins: Pastoolas, kratchmuks... How much do you get American?
Mr. Zabladowski: Precisely twenty bucks. Show me a better job, and I'll take it.

Bart Collins: Say, I've gotta get out of here.
Mr. Zabladowski: Relax, don't take these little things so seriously. After all, seeing as how your mother's here...
Bart Collins: My mother's here?
Mr. Zabladowski: That's a silly question. You know perfectly well she's in the Number 2 spot.
Bart Collins: The Number 2 spot?
Mr. Zabladowski: Second in charge of the whole Happy Finger racket.
Bart Collins: My mom couldn't be mixed up in any racket!
Mr. Zabladowski: Look, partner: I hate to speak badly about mothers, after all, motherhood is the noblest institution in our land. But the fact remains that your ma is in the Number 2 spot. At headquarters right now.
Bart Collins: She wouldn't keep me in a place like this! I gotta see her!
Mr. Zabladowski: I wouldn't advise it. You'll never make it.
Bart Collins: I can try!
Mr. Zabladowski: I wouldn't try.
Bart Collins: I know. All you'd ever try for is time and a half for overtime.

Bart Collins: [crawling out of an air vent] Jeepers, am I glad to see you!
Mr. Zabladowski: Will you get out of there, you scared the daylights out of me Bart! What are you doing? Simmer down, will you whats up?
Bart Collins: They're after me!
Mr. Zabladowski: Who?
Bart Collins: Practically everybody!
Mr. Zabladowski: [chuckles] I'm not.
Bart Collins: I'm in terrible trouble!
Mr. Zabladowski: So, everyone gets into trouble. Everyone in the world, the king of Persia sometimes even gets into trouble. But the king of Persia, does he come crawling out of my air vent? Not at all! The king of Persia - he stays in Persia.

Dr. Terwilliker: I'm sure you'll find this a most fascinating dungeon. That lovely rumbling sound you hear is one of my favorite prisoners! He was a bass drummer in an orchestra I once conducted, had a very bad habit. You know that part in Beethoven's Fifth Symphony, where the drummer is supposed to go 'A-boom-boom-boom-boom?' Well, this stupid lout always went 'A-boom-boom-boom-boom... A-boom!' One extra boom, you know. He'll be here forever.
[they see a man beating an enormous drum repeatedly]
Mr. Zabladowski: You mean he has to keep beating that drum forever?
Dr. Terwilliker: Oh, that isn't the man I'm punishing! My man is inside the drum!

Mr. Zabladowski: You are a sly, deceiving little coot. So I'll "just go and take a look"!

Bart Collins: [Shows Zabladowsky his death warrant] So you didn't believe me. Your life isn't worth a pastoola!
Mr. Zabladowski: People should always believe in kids. People should even believe their lies!
