Bree Davenport: Yup, and so were the dinosaurs; but, through the magic of cinema, we can see them again.

Perry: Oh, boy. Did I pick the wrong day to eat sardines and milk.

Perry: Someone stole explosives from the weapons area.
Donald Davenport: What?
Adam Davenport: Oh, no worries. All we have to do is wait for someone to explode and, boom, that's our guy.

Principal Perry: Look, I know what I saw, and when the aliens invade, I'll be safely barricaded in your underground lab.
[Perry scuttles off]
Adam Davenport: Well, on the bright side, a girl actually showed up to Chase's party.

Bree Davenport: Do you have any redeeming qualities?
Principal Perry: Is having violent mood swings considered redeeming? I ASKED YOU A QUESTION!

Principal Perry: [suspecting Chase might have alien babies developing inside him] There's only one way to find out what's going on in there. I'm gonna need two clamps, a roll of paper towels, and a machete.

Principal Perry: I'm not gonna hurt you. I'm just gonna split you open and destroy the alien babies INSIDE YOU!

Principal Perry: The aliens are using the lunar eclipse to hide their spaceship and invade Earth!
Adam Davenport: Yeah, I read about this in line at the supermarket. It's true - aliens live among us! Oh, and Ryan Seacrest has a great meatloaf recipe. The secret? Crackers!
Leo Dooley: You see? You see? I told you! WEIRD things were gonna happen tonight. First, Principal Perry sees a spaceship, and then Adam claims to have read something.

Leo Dooley: How can you be sure. You were gone for fifteen minutes.
Principal Perry: Aha!
Chase Davenport: I was in the bathroom! Should I INVITE you next time?

"Lab Rats: Chip Switch (#1.12)" (2012)
Principal Perry: Dooley! What're you doing in my elevator?
Leo: I'm enjoying the music. Today is "Love Songs from the Nineties." Wanna dance?
Principal Perry: Use the stairs! This is exactly how healthy kids become unhealthy adults.
Leo: [looking her over] Really? Are we having this conversation?

Principal Perry: Listen up, space-fillers! This is Emergency Preparedness Week. An emergency drill can happen at any time; SO, when the alarm sounds, you must evacuate the building in an orderly fashion, like cattle - if cattle had acne... and braces... and a future filling up my gas tank.

Principal Perry: [as the elevator goes up] Did you push a button?
Leo: No. You must have bumped it when you shifted your center of gravy... GRAVITY!

Principal Perry: It's times like these I think: Who's gonna feed all my cats? I hope they don't eat Mother. I hope she doesn't THEM!

Principal Perry: Hey, Dooley, I'm sorry for being so hard on you. You're not such a bad kid.
Leo: Thanks. And you... are a tolerable, middle-aged authority figure.
Principal Perry: That's the nicest thing anyone's ever said to me.

Leo: That if you get stuck, cats will eat your mom?

Principal Perry: If I wanted to be stared at all day, I'd still be a catalogue model for Burt's Chainsaws.

Principal Perry: Eat the meat, Don!

Principal Perry: I'm not done with you yet.
Donald Davenport: Okay, but for the record, I always liked you. It's the kids that hate your guts.

Principal Perry: Sorry I had to do that with the salad tongs, but you're the one who ran.

Principal Perry: Did you two REALLY think I would brutally dispose of someone and hide the evidence?
Bree Davenport: Yes.
Leo Dooley: Absolutely.

"Lab Rats: Bob Zombie (#4.16)" (2015)
Bree Davenport: What were you doing in our weapons room?
Perry: Leveling the playing field. You never know when you machine people are gonna turn on us fleshies.

Perry: It's a rebellion! They're trying to take me out so that they can rule Perryland. Well, the only way that's gonna happen is over Dear Leader's dead body!
Leo Dooley: Well, you had a good run.

Perry: I'm not gonna attack them. I'm just gonna give them a gentle warning, a gentle 15,000 volt warning.

Leo Dooley: Hey, what ever happened to your military goon squad?
Perry: When they found out they weren't getting paid, they threatened to quit, so I had to fire on them.
Bree Davenport: You mean "fire" them.
Perry: Nope.

Perry: [sweetly, about her wedding day] I've been dreaming of this since I was a little girl. This is exactly how I pictured it.

Principal Perry: [referring to herself] Do you really wanna poke the bear?
Leo Dooley: Do you really wanna use that analogy?

Principal Perry: I used to be a maximum security prison guard, and I still have the scars from the electric chair to prove it. It was the middle of the night, and I thought it was the can. It happens. D'you wanna see?

Principal Perry: In Dingo detention we have two simple rules: no talking and no cell phones.
Bree Davenport: And, apparently, no mouthwash.
Principal Perry: Jokes on you. I gargle with vinegar.

Leo Dooley: This is serious! This is a matter of life and death!
Principal Perry: You said that same thing when the vending machine ran out of cheese curls.

Bree Davenport: Can I just say that your hair looks great? Uh, who is doing it these days?

Principal Perry: My own lunch ladies! How could you betray me? And I taught you how to recycle substandard meat!

Principal Perry: Where's my uniform?
Adam Davenport: Uhh... you don't get one. The tailor says science hasn't caught up to that yet.

Principal Perry: [once again lead into the control room blindfolded] So it's an actual mission this time?
Chase Davenport: [sarcastically] No, we're going on a pancake run.


"Lab Rats: Not So Smart Phone (#3.6)" (2014)
Principal Perry: [sudden realization] None of this junk will make me happy. What really matters in life is... treating people poorly for my own amusement - and nothing makes me feel more complete than doing it to you twerps. Mmm.
Bree Davenport: What a wonderful life lesson.
Principal Perry: Yeah. Guess I'm not gonna retire after all. It's back to my original plan of working till I drop and then getting stuffed and mounted over the gym door.

Perry: [shouting] I've grown as a person since then! Come 'ere!
[Perry grabs Tasha, who squeals]
Perry: Don't fight it. Like me back.

Bree Davenport: You know, if you don't think about how it was cooked, the chicken is actually quite tasty.
Perry: Oh, I ran out of chicken. That's falcon.

Leo Dooley: I'm done.
Perry: But you haven't even tried my sausages yet.
Leo Dooley: You cooked them in the tailpipe?
Perry: You call it a tailpipe, I call it a smoker. Anytime I see hot air comin' outta somethin', the first thing I think is "How can I put meat in there."
Donald Davenport: And to think you're still single.


"Lab Rats: Space Colony (#4.23)" (2016)
Perry: I find the violent rumble of rocket engines to be soothing, plus the fumes knock me out cold.

Chase Davenport: I do not doubt that.

Principal Perry: You don't run a women's correctional facility without learning how to scale a few walls.

Principal Perry: [to Chase] What're you hidin', Little Bo Peep?
Bree Davenport: Um... he... he's not hiding anything.
Adam Davenport: Well, he does have an usually large birth mark on his left hip. You stare at it long enough and it kinda looks like Justin Bieber.

[Principal Perry is searching students for banned items]

Principal Perry: Mocking my porcelain Irish skin? Back of the line, princess.

Principal Perry: Don't you wish kids had a return policy?

Adam: [bursting onto the principal's office] Bree, what is taking so long... ah, I mean - oops! - this isn't the men's room.
Principal Perry: Why would I be sitting in the men's room?
Chase Davenport: Because anything else would be unladylike.

Principal Perry: What're you doin' here, Dooley? Shouldn't you be at home disappointing your parents?

Perry: Rashes don't bother me. I'm rarely without one.

Perry: Yeah, well, the only voices I listen to are the three inside my head.

Principal Perry: When I get interviewed I get nervous, and when I get nervous I start making up lies. I can't help it. It's a medical condition. See? I just did it right there.

Donald Davenport: I'll do it, but this blackmailing thing is getting old.
Principal Perry: So's this marriage. Now, shut your yap and get in the car.

Human Eddy: I said why don't you go back to your mushroom house and leave me alone!


"Lab Rats: Trent Gets Schooled (#2.25)" (2014)

Chase Davenport, Bree Davenport: [cyber-disguised as Bree: his voice, her looks] No way.
Bree Davenport, Principal Perry: I am a teenage girl trapped inside Perry's body. Do you REALLY wanna see what happens when those two mix?
