Ralph! I’m so glad to see you. (Felix throws his arms around Ralph. Changing his mind, he lets go and turns away from him). (Ralph tries to talk) Wait. No, I’m not. What do you have to say for yourself? Wait, I don’t want to hear it. I’m not talking to you. (Ralph: Ok, don’t talk, that’s fine. But you have to fix this go-kart for me, pronto). I don’t have to do boo...forgive my potty mouth. I’m just so, so, cross with you. Do you have any idea what you’ve put me through? I ran higgledy-piggledy all over creation looking for you. I almost drowned in chocolate milk mix. And then I met the most dynamite gal. She just gives me the honey-glow something awful. But she rebuffed my affections. And then I got thrown in jail. (Ralph: Felix, pull yourself together!) No, Ralph, you don’t know what it’s like to be rejected and treated like a criminal!

(Slouch: What's he talkin' about?) (Bradley Uppercrust III: Just what makes you think you can change your mind on the last day of the competition?) (Tank [grabbing Goofy]: Should I knock some sense into his big melon?) (Bradley Uppercrust III: Whoa, whoa. Down, Tank. Easy, boy. (points a pool cue at Goofy's face) If you're thinking you're quitting the Gammas to join that freshman geek son of yours, you've got another thing comin'.) (Tank: Bull's-eye, baby. Dog-boy's in trouble, and Daddy's gonna bail him out.) No, siree, sir. (Goofy grabs the pool cue and slams it on Tank's foot) (Tank: Ow! My bunion!) I'm not gonna be on ANYONE'S team! (Bradley Uppercrust III: Smart man. But you forgot one thing. Nobody, I repeat...NOBODY QUITS THE GAMMAS!) If you were such darn winners before, you'll be just fine without me! I'm leavin' the Gammas, and that's that! (Bradley Uppercrust III: No, you're not leaving the Gammas.) (Cut to Goofy being kicked out of the Frat House.)

Of course they are. That's what it's all about, isn't it? That's what it's always been about! Gifts! Gifts. Gifts, gifts, gifts, gifts, gifts, gifts. You want to know what happens to your gifts? They all come to me. In your garbage. You see what I'm saying? In your garbage! I could hang myself with all the bad Christmas neckties I found at the dump! And the avarice. The avarice never ends! "I want golf clubs." "I want diamonds." "I want a pony, so I can ride it twice, get bored, and sell it to make glue." Look, I don't want to make waves, but this whole Christmas season is... stupid, stupid, stupid! There is, however... one teeny-tiny... Christmas tradition... I find... quite meaningful. Mistletoe. Now, pucker up and kiss it, Whoville!
~ The Grinch getting even with the Whoville citizens

[shoves Max out of the bathroom] We'll play tomorrow, buddy, okay? Okay, sleep well.) (She closes the door. Duke glares at Max) Are you trying to get rid of me?! (Max, nervously: Before I answer that, I'd like to know how much you heard.) So that's how it's gonna be, huh?! Oh, man, are you making me angry! And when I get angry, I do this! (snarls) And I don't wanna do that! I need this place! And if it's gonna come down to you or me, it's gonna be ME! (Duke barks fiercely at Max, who cowers. Duke walks back to Max's bed.

You're not used to winning like me, but maybe you work up a little because...) (Kelly begins to lose her patience.) You never win everything in your life, Taylor! NEVER! Not one race, not one medal! NOTHING! (Taylor: Wait, what? My room is full of trophies and medals!) Because your dad brought a trophy store! What kind of "trophies" come from the mail? And guess who paid your coaches to lie?

You blockhead! (points at Linus) You kept me all night waiting for the Great Pumpkin! All that came was a beagle! And I didn't get a chance to go out for tricks-or-treats! And it was all your fault! I'll sue! What a fool I was! I could've had candy, apples and gum! And cookies and money and all sorts of things! But no! I had to listen to you, you blockhead. What a fool I was.

Well, do you think it might be nice if somebody asked me what I wanted? (Shrek: Sure. Do you want me to pack for you?) You're unbelievable! You're behaving like a... like a... (Shrek: Go on! Say it!) Like an ogre! (Shrek: Well, here's the news flash for you! Whether your parents like it or not, I AM AN OGRE! (Shrek roars fiercely at Fiona's toy poodle. The terrified dog covers its eyes with its paws.) (Shrek: And guess what, Princess? That's not about to change.) (Fiona frowns, sighs in disgust and walks towards the door.

(Tarzan, actively protesting to the gorilla leader: They mean us no harm, Kerchak!) Tarzan, I don't know that! (Tarzan: Well I do! I've spend time with them!) You may be willing to risk our safety, But I'm not! (Tarzan gets up into Kerchak's face like he's going to fight him.) (Tarzan, defiantly: Why are you threatened by anyone different from you?) (The gorilla leader is stunned by this challenge to his authority and glares at Tarzan.) Protect this family! And stay away from them! (Tarzan sulks off in anger.)

(Lincoln steps back into the house after being punched in the face by Ronnie Anne, and he is not one bit happy with his sisters.) (Luna: Sorry, buddy. Our bad.) (Luan: Well, at least, you gave it a shot.) (Lynn: I'll get some ice for that shiner.) (Lisa: X-ray machine, stat.) (Leni: I'm really sorry, Lincoln.) (The girls all try to apologize to Lincoln for their meddling, which he is through hearing.) (Infuriated) QUIET!!! Every time you guys butt into my life, you make things worse! Well, guess what? Never again! NO! MORE! MEDDLING! (He walks to his room and slams the door in rage as his sisters stand there feeling guilty.)

(Roddy takes it... and crushes it in his hand with no effort.) (Sid: Have another.) (Roddy breaks that one in two and throws the pieces behind him.) (Sid: Here you go.) (Roddy smacks that one aside with the back of his hand.) (Sid: No! Duh. You're supposed to eat them.) (Slowly) Move. Over. (Sid: What?) (Roddy's temper finally erupts!) MOVE OVER!!! (Sid complies with fright. Roddy sits next to him.)
~ Roddy St. James finally growing a spine and letting Sid know he has had just about enough of him.

Do you know what happens if I lose this race?! Every mile of this trip was to get me faster than Jackson Storm. FASTER! I start off getting nowhere for a WEEK on a simulator! I lose a whole day with you on Fireball Beach! AND THEN, I WASTE TONIGHT IN THE CROSSHAIRS OF MISS FRITTER! I'M STUCK IN THE SAME SPEED I WAS A MONTH AGO! I CAN'T GET ANY FASTER BECAUSE I'M TOO BUSY TAKING CARE OF MY TRAINER! This is my last chance, Cruz. Last! Final! Finito! If I lose, I never get to do this again!
