Quotes

[Edgar is listening in on Madame discussing her will]

Madame Adelaide Bonfamille: As you know, I have no living relatives, and I want my cats to be well taken care of. And who can do that better than my faithful servant, Edgar?

Georges Hautecourt: Edgar? Adelaide, you mean you're giving your vast fortune to Edgar?All your stocks and bonds, this-this mansion, your country chateau, your jewels and gems...?

Madame Adelaide Bonfamille: No, no, no, George. To my cats.

Georges Hautecourt: To your cats?

Edgar: [gasping] Cats?

Madame Adelaide Bonfamille: Yes. I just wish for the cats to inherit first. Then at the end of their life span, the entire estate reverts to Edgar.

Edgar: Cats inherit first, and I come after the cats! After I... oh. It's not fair!

[Stands up, hits head on intercom]

Edgar: Ooh! I mean, each cat will live about twelve years, I can't wait... and each cat has nine lives! That's four times twelve, times nine... No, it's less than that. Anyway, that's more than I'll ever live. I'll be gone! No, oh, no. They'll be gone. I'll think of a way. After all, there are millions of reasons why I should. All of them dollars. Millions. Those cats have got to go!

Napoleon: Lafayette! Lafayette, listen.

Lafayette: Oh, shucks, Napoleon. That ain't nothin' more but a little ol' cricket bug.

Napoleon: It's squeaky shoes approachin'.

Lafayette: Oh, cricket bugs don't wear shoes.

Napoleon: Hush your mouth! Let's see. They're Oxford shoes, size nine and a half. Hole in the left sole, it sounds like.

Lafayette: What color are they?

Napoleon: Why, they're black... Ah, now how would I know that?

Napoleon: It's a motorcycle. Two cylinder. Chain drive. One squeaky wheel, on the front, it sounds like. Now you go for the tires, and I'll go right for the seat of the problem.

Lafayette: How come you always grab the tender part for yourself?

Napoleon: 'Cause I outrank you, that's why. Now, stop beatin' your gums and sound the attack.

[Lafayette barks]

Napoleon: No, that's mess call.

Lafayette: Made a mess of it, huh?

Napoleon: You can be replaced, you know.
