Dodger: You're all right, kid, for a cat. We'll keep a spot open in the gang for ya. Vice president, uptown chapter.
Rita: Where's the kid?
Tito: [coughs after nearly getting barbecued] He must still be in the car, man!
[everyone watches as the limo departs]
Rita: Oh, that poor little kid.
Dodger: You were supposed to keep an eye on him, Tito!
Tito: [coughs] Yeah. Well, it's hard to watch anything when you're getting barbecued, man!
Tito: Hey, man, if this is torture, chain me to the wall.
Georgette: [singing] Girl, we've got work to do / Pass me the paint and glue / Perfect isn't easy / But... it's... me! /And when one knows the world is watching / One does what one must / Some minor adjustments, Darling / Not for my vanity / But for humanity.
[Georgette sees Oliver in the kitchen]
Georgette: I, um, hope you won't think me rude, but do you happen to know out of whose bowl you're eating?
Georgette: [sarcastically] Ooh! Aren't you a clever kitty?

[Jenny is at the wharf to ransom Oliver, unaware that Fagin is the kidnapper]
Jenny: And what kind of person would steal an innocent little kitty?
Fagin: Well, I... I mean, he... He might be up against a stone wall, at the end of his rope.

Fagin: He must have been a poor, desperate man.

Rita: How did you find this place, cat?
Oliver: I-I was following this dog.
Tito: He's lying! He's lying! He's lying!...
Rita: [Kicks Tito] Stop it, Tito.
Francis: And why would a cat follow a dog?
Oliver: I just wanted some of the hot dogs I helped him get.
Tito: He's a spy, man! Come on, let's eat him! You're dead meat, kitty!
Georgette: Don't you come any closer! I knew this would happen someday.
Dodger: Oh, you've barking up the wrong tree, sister. It's not you we're after.
Georgette: It's not?
Georgette: It's not? Well why not? What's the problem, Spot? Not good enough for you? I mean, do you even know who I am? 56 blue ribbons. 14 regional trophies. Six-time national champion!

Tito: Hey, hey, hey! There is a lady, Francis.

Tito: After you, my little croissant.
Francis: Good grief.
Dodger: Yo, Tito, hot wire!

Georgette: Good luck, Alonzo. I'll be waiting.
Tito: [singing] Heigh ho, heigh ho, it's off to work we go...
Dodger: [singing] Why should I worry? Why should I care? I may not have a dime, but I've got street savoire-faire. Why should I worry? Why should I care? It's just be-bopulation, but I've got street savoire-faire.

Oliver: What do ya mean?
Dodger: What I mean is, our partnership is herewith dissolved.
Oliver: But, wait! Wait. You're not being fair!

Dodger: Absitively posolutely!
[Jenny has found Oliver and wants to keep him]

Francis: [chucking] Yes. Captains of Industry.
Sykes: Three sunrises. Three sunsets. Three days, Fagin.

Tito: [pulling out an old wallet] Check it out.
Francis: Oh, shredded leather.
Tito: Shredded wha... What you talkin' about, man? That's a primo wallet, man.
Francis: Rubbish, you mean.
Tito: All right, that does it, Frankie, man! You insulted my pride! That means death!

Georgette: [singing] You pretty pups all over the city / I have your hearts and you have my pity / Pretty is nice, but still it's just pretty / Perfect, my dears, is me.
Dodger: Picture the city. 8th and Broadway. The crowd's hustling. The traffic's roaring. The hot dogs are sizzling.
Einstein: I love a story with food in it.
Dodger: Enter Dodger, one bad puppy. Not just out for himself, but community minded. But he's not alone. Enter the opposition. A vicious, ugly, psychotic monster. Gleaming claws, dripping fangs, and nine lives, all of them hungry. He came at me, his eyes burning. I knew my time had come. Suddenly...
[Oliver falls from the roof, spooking everyone]
Sykes: Now, I lent you some money, and I don't see it. Do you know what happens when I don't see my money, Fagin?

Sykes: People get hurt. People like you get hurt. Do I make myself clear?
Fagin: [wheezing] Clear! Perfectly clear!

Jenny: For the kitty, the house speciality: oeufs a la Jenny avec Cocoa Krispies.
Dodger: Roscoe, Roscoe. Is this us losing our sense of humor?
Roscoe: Nah, I ain't lost my sense of humor.
[Kicks over the TV]
Roscoe: See? I find that funny.
Sykes: So, Fagin. Did we bring something green and wrinkly to make Sykes happy?
Fagin: Sykes, I have an airtight kitty - plan. Plan! It's sweet and simple, the plan... Let me start over again.
Sykes: Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy.
Fagin: I got this kitty, see...
Sykes: What am I going to do with you, Fagin?
Fagin: Please, Sykes...
Sykes: If you don't have my money...
[he snaps his fingers and the Dobermans jump at Fagin; Dodger intercepts them and they fight]
Fagin: No, no, Sykes! Please, stop! Your money's coming tonight! It's coming tonight! It's from a rich cat - I mean, a cat from a rich family! They're coming with the money I owe you to get their cat back!
[Sykes snaps his fingers again; the Dobermans stop fighting, leaving Dodger unconscious on the floor]
Sykes: Well, looks like you're doing all right for yourself. I'm proud of you, Fagin. Yeah, you're starting to think big. You have twelve hours. And Fagin... this is your last chance.
Dodger: Hey, keep it down, guys. The game's on.
Tito: Oh boy, Dodger. Tough dog have to get help from a cat!
Dodger: Hey, Tito, uh, cool it, man.
Tito: Come on, let's see this big, bad kitty fight in action!
Dodger: Hey Tito, look!
[Tito looks away, Dodger jumps on him]
Francis: [to Roscoe] Isn't it rather dangerous to use ones entire vocabulary in a single sentence?
Dodger: All right, you guys. If Mr. Sykes don't see some cold, hard cash, we are Doberman chow.
Sykes: [opens the car door to empty his ashtray, almost pushing Fagin off the pier] I don't think you grasp the severity of the situation.
Fagin: [hangs on to the sideview mirror to keep from falling] Oh, no, I grasp it. See? This is how I grasp.
[the mirror comes off and falls in the water]
Fagin: Accident! Accident!
Fagin: He's late. I drew a perfectly good map. Well, there were a few smudges on it, okay! I went outside the line with a green crayon, but not much.
[to Dodger, Charlie Horse Music Pizza Theme Song]
Oliver: Hey, wait! I helped you get those! Half of those are mine!
Oliver: I was so happy there. Why'd you guys take me away?
Dodger: [To Oliver] Ol' Dodge really knows how to pick em, eh?
Tito: Aye! It's an alien!
Tito: He's family! He's Blood!
Tito: [when Francis is watching TV] Hey Frankie, man, watcha watchin, man? Does he get the girl? I mean, what happens?... Hey, this stuff is boring, man! Lets see some action, man, let's watch some boxing!
Einstein: [Dodger's story] I love a story with food in it.
Sykes: What is this, a slumber party!? Get goin', you stupid mutts!
Sykes: [ties a crying Jenny to a chair] Now don't cry, little girl. They only eat when I tell them to.
Sykes: This has all been very entertaining. But the party is over.
Sykes: What the? I didn't order any pizza!
