Roger Rabbit Quotes:

  • [Judge Doom about to "dip" Roger]

    Eddie Valiant: Hey, Judge. Doesn't a dying rabbit deserve a last request?

    Roger Rabbit: Yeah, nose plugs would be nice.

    Eddie Valiant: I think you want a drink. So, how about it, Judge?

    Judge Doom: Well, why not? I don't mind prolonging the execution.

    Eddie Valiant: Happy trails.

    Roger Rabbit: No thanks, Eddie. I'm trying to cut down.

    Eddie Valiant: Drink the drink.

    Roger Rabbit: But I don't want the drink.

    Judge Doom: He doesn't want the drink.

    Eddie Valiant: He does.

    Roger Rabbit: I don't.

    Eddie Valiant: You do.

    Roger Rabbit: I don't.

    Eddie Valiant: You do.

    Roger Rabbit: I don't.

    Eddie Valiant: You do.

    Roger Rabbit: I don't.

    Eddie Valiant: You don't.

    Roger Rabbit: I do.

    Eddie Valiant: You don't.

    Roger Rabbit: I do.

    Eddie Valiant: You don't.

    Roger Rabbit: [taking drink] Listen, when I say I do, that means I do.

    [Roger smokes up, releasing him self from Judge Doom, and Eddie takes out the Weasels]

  • Eddie Valiant: You crazy rabbit! I'm out there risking my neck for you, and what are you doing? Singing and dancing!

    Roger Rabbit: But I'm a toon. Toons are supposed to make people laugh.

    Eddie Valiant: Sit down!

    Roger Rabbit: You don't understand. Those people needed to laugh.

    Eddie Valiant: Then when they're done laughing, they'll call the cops. That guy Angelo would rat on you for a nickel.

    Roger Rabbit: Not Angelo. He'd never turn me in.

    Eddie Valiant: Why? Because you made him laugh?

    Roger Rabbit: That's right! A laugh can be a very powerful thing. Why, sometimes in life, it's the only weapon we have.

  • Roger Rabbit: [after bursting in through the drain, holding a gun] Okay, nobody move! All right, you weasels, grab some sky or I let the judge have it. You heard me, I said drop it!

    Jessica Rabbit: Roger, darling!

    Roger Rabbit: That's right, my dear. I'd love to embrace you, but first, I have to satisfy my sense of moral outrage.

    Judge Doom: Put that gun down, you buck-toothed fool!

    Roger Rabbit: That's it, Doom. Give me another excuse to pump you full of lead. So you thought you could get away with it, didn't you? Ha! We toons may act idiotic, but we're not stupid. We demand justice. Why, the real meaning of the word probably hits you like a ton of bricks.

    [a ton of bricks falls on Roger from above]

    Jessica Rabbit: Roger! Roger, say something!

    Roger Rabbit: [Stars circle around Roger's head] Look, stars! Ready when you are, Raoul.

  • Roger Rabbit: Yeah. Check the probate. Why, my Uncle Thumper had a problem with HIS probate, and he had to take these big pills, and drink lots of water.

    Eddie Valiant: Not prostate, you idiot, PROBATE!

  • Eddie Valiant: Anybody know you're here?

    Roger Rabbit: Nobody. Not a soul, except, uh...

    Eddie Valiant: Who?

    Roger Rabbit: Well, you see, I didn't know where your office was. So I asked the newsboy. He didn't know. So I asked the fireman, the green grocerer, the butcher, the baker, they didn't know! But the liquor store guy... he knew.

    Eddie Valiant: [Grabs Roger and sends him to the door] In other words, the whole town knows you're here! Get out!

  • Eddie Valiant: I'm through with taking falls / And bouncing off the walls / Without that gun, I'd have some fun / I'd kick you in the...

    [bottle falls on his head]

    Roger Rabbit: Nose!

    Smart Ass: Nose? That don't rhyme with "walls."

    Eddie Valiant: No, but this does.

    [kicks Smartass in the crotch, propelling him into a vat of Dip]

  • Roger Rabbit: Jumpin' Jeepers.

    Benny the Cab: Hey Roger, what do you call the middle of a song?

    Roger Rabbit: Gee, I don't know

    [sees that they're heading for... ]

    Roger Rabbit: A BRIDGE!

  • Roger Rabbit: [as Eddie's attempting to push him out of his office] P-p-please, Eddie! Don't throw me out. Don't you realize you're making a big mistake? I didn't kill anybody. I swear! The whole thing's a set up. A scam, a frame job. Ow! Eddie, I could never hurt anybody. Oow! My whole purpose in life is to make... people... laugh!

  • Roger Rabbit: What could have possibly happen to you to turn you into such a sourpuss?

    Eddie Valiant: You really want to know? I'll tell you. A toon killed my brother.

    Roger Rabbit: A toon? No!

    Eddie Valiant: Yes, a toon. We were investigating a robbery at the First National Bank of Toontown. Back in those days, me and Teddy liked working Toontown, thought it was a lot of laughs. Anyway, this guy got away with a zillion simoleons. We trailed him to a little dive down on Yukster Street. We went in. Only he got the drop on us, literally. Dropped a piano on us from fifteen stories. Broke my arm, Teddy never made it. I never did find out who that guy was. All I remember was him standing over me laughing, with those burning red eyes, and that high, squeaky voice. He disappeared into Toontown after that.

  • Judge Doom: [Tapping his cane against the wall] Shave, and a haircut...

    [Roger crashes through the wall]

    Roger Rabbit: TWO BITS!

    [Judge Doom successfully grabs Roger round the neck]

  • Eddie Valiant: [Roger managed to slip his arm out of the Handcuffs he and Eddie were attached to] You mean you could've taken your hand out of that cuff at any time?

    Roger Rabbit: No, not at any time, only when it was funny.

    Raoul J. Raoul: Cut! Cut, cut, cut, cut, CUT!

    Baby Herman: What the hell was wrong with THAT take?

    Raoul J. Raoul: Nothing with you, Baby Herman. You were great. You were perfect. You were BETTER than perfect! It's Roger, he keeps BLOWING HIS LINES! Roger, what is this?

    Roger Rabbit: A tweeting bird.

    Raoul J. Raoul: "A tweeting bird." Roger, read this script. Look what it says. It says, "Rabbit gets klunked, rabbit sees STARS." Not birds, STARS!

  • Roger Rabbit: Say, Eddie. That sure was a funny dance you did for the weasels. Do you think your days of being a sourpuss are over?

    Eddie Valiant: Only time will tell.

    Roger Rabbit: Yeah, well... put 'er there, pal.

    [They shake hands; Eddie gets shocked by buzzer on Roger's hand; he glowers at Roger]

    Roger Rabbit: Don't tell me you lost your sense of humor already?

    Eddie Valiant: [Grabbing Roger by the throat] Does this answer your question?

    [Eddie kisses Roger in the mouth]

  • Angelo: Hey, I seen a rabbit.

    [Roger gasps]

    Eddie Valiant: Ya see?

    Judge Doom: Where?

    Angelo: He's right here in the bar.

    [puts his arm around Harvey the Invisible Rabbit]

    Angelo: Say hello... Harvey.

    [the whole bar erupts in laughter]

    Roger Rabbit: I told you so.

  • Eddie Valiant: Dolores, you need to find yourself a good man.

    Dolores: But I already have a good man.

    [they are about to kiss when Roger sighs - they turn to him]

    Roger Rabbit: P-p-please, don't mind me.

  • Roger Rabbit: Jeepers, Eddie. That was swell. You saved my life. How can I ever repay ya?

    [kisses Eddie, Eddie pulls away]

    Eddie Valiant: For starters, don't ever kiss me again.

  • Roger Rabbit: P-p-please, Raoul. I can give you stars. Just drop the refrigerator on my head one more time!

    Raoul J. Raoul: Roger, I've dropped it on your head 23 times already.

    Roger Rabbit: I can take it, don't worry about me.

    Raoul J. Raoul: I'm not worried about you, I'm worried about the REFRIDGERATOR!

    Roger Rabbit: But I can give you stars, Look!

    [Raoul storms out, not payimg any attention to Roger slapping a Frying Pan on his head]

  • [to Eddie]

    Roger Rabbit: Is there nothing that can permeate that impervious puss?

  • Eddie Valiant: Wait a minute. Wait a minute. You mean to tell me that in a fit of jealousy you wrote your wife a love letter?

    Roger Rabbit: That's right! I knew that she was just an innocent victim of circumstance.

    Eddie Valiant: I suppose you used the old lipstick on the mirror routine.

    Roger Rabbit: Lipstick, yes. Mirror, no. I found a nice, clean piece of paper.


    Roger Rabbit: "Dear Jessica: How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. One one-thousand. Two one-thousand. Three one-thousand. Four one-thousand. Five...?

  • Roger Rabbit: [In the Movie Theatre] Boy, did you see that? Nobody takes a wallop like Goofy. What timing! What finesse! What a genius!

  • Eddie Valiant: Say, Roger. That letter you wrote to your wife at the Ink and Paint Club? Why don't you read it to her now?

    Roger Rabbit: Sure thing, Eddie. "Dear Jessica: How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. I, Marvin Acme, of sound mind and body...? It's the will!

    Eddie Valiant: Keep reading.

    Roger Rabbit: "... do hereby bequeath, in perpetuity, the property known as Toontown, to those lovable characters, the toons"!

  • Jessica Rabbit: Oh, Roger. You were magnificent.

    Roger Rabbit: Was I really?

    Jessica Rabbit: Better than Goofy.

  • Roger Rabbit: Benny, is that you?

    Benny the Cab: [sarcastically, trapped in the boot of the Toon Patrol's vehicle] No, it's Eleanor Roosevelt! Get me outta here, Roger!

  • Roger Rabbit: [Noticing Benny, injured from the Dip he drove through spilled onto the Road] Benny, is that you?

    Benny the Cab: [sarcastically] No, it's Shirley Temple!

  • Smart Ass: [From outside Eddie's Office] Don't make us play rough, Valiant. We just want the rabbit.

    Roger Rabbit: What are we gonna do, Eddie? What are we gonna do, Eddie? What are we gonna do?

    Eddie Valiant: What's all this "we" stuff? They just want the rabbit.

  • Roger Rabbit: Hide me Eddie... PLLLEASE.

    [Jumps into the Drawers]

    Roger Rabbit: Remember you never saw me.

    Eddie Valiant: GET OUT OF THERE.

  • Roger Rabbit: Boy, what is this, some kind of secret room?

    Dolores: It's a rotgut room, holdover from Prohibition.

    Roger Rabbit: Oh, I get it, a speakeasy, a gin mill, a hooch parlor.

  • Benny the Cab: [after being released from the Toon Patrol's vehicle] Ah, that's better. I can't believe they locked me up for driving on the sidewalk.

    Roger Rabbit: Come on, Eddie, get in!

    Benny the Cab: It was only a couple of MILES.

    Eddie Valiant: I'll drive.

    Roger Rabbit: But I wanna drive.

    Benny the Cab: No. I'LL drive, I'M the cab! Outta my way, pencil neck!

  • R.K. Maroon: Roger, I know this seems pretty painful now, but you'll find someone new. Won't he, Mr. Valiant?

    Eddie Valiant: Good looking guy like that? Dames will be breaking his doors down.

    Roger Rabbit: Dames? What dames?

    [Angrily grabbing Eddie by the lapels]

    Roger Rabbit: Jessica's the only one for me. You'll see. We'll rise above this piddling pecadillo. We're gonna be happy again. You got that? Happy. Capital H-A-P-P-I.

    [Runs through window]

    Eddie Valiant: At least he took it well.

  • Roger Rabbit: [as Eddie's performance causes the Toon Patrol to literally die of laughter] Keep it up, Eddie. You're killing 'em. You're slaying 'em! You're knocking 'em DEAD!

  • [Roger and Benny arrive outside the Acme Factory]

    Roger Rabbit: Benny, you go to the cops. I'm gonna save my wife.

    Benny the Cab: Be careful with that gun. This ain't no cartoon, you know.

  • Roger Rabbit: [as he dances on the bar's counter top] Woo-hoo-hoo! Nice shirt. Who's your tailor? Quasimodo? Woo-hoo!

  • Eddie Valiant: So why come to me? I'm the one who took the pictures of your wife.

    Roger Rabbit: Yeah, and you're also the one who helped all these toons. Everyone knows that when a toon's in trouble, there's only one place to go: Valiant & Valiant.

    Eddie Valiant: Not anymore.

  • Roger Rabbit: P-p-please, Eddie. You know there's no justice for toons anymore. If the weasels get their hands on me, I'm as good as dipped.

  • Roger Rabbit: [singing] My buddy's Eddie V. / A sourpuss, you'll see / But when I'm done, he'll need no gun / 'Cause a joker he will be / C-D-E-F-G-H-I / I... love to raise some Cain / Believe me, it's no strain / It feels so great to smash a plate / And look, 'cause there's no pain!

    Eddie Valiant: No, I just want you to know something about the guy you're gonna dip.

    [Pulls a lever on a calliope, which plays "The Merry-Go-Round Broke Down"]

    Eddie Valiant: [singing] Now Roger is his name / Laughter is his game / C'mon you dope, untie his rope / And watch him go insane.

    [He starts dancing and tumbling around, as the weasels laugh]

    Jessica Rabbit: He's lost his mind.

    Roger Rabbit: I don't think so.

  • Roger Rabbit: I just don't believe it. I won't believe it. I can't believe it. I shan't believe it.

  • Benny the Cab: Pull the lever!

    Eddie Valiant: Which one?

    Roger Rabbit: Which one?

    Benny the Cab: "Which one?"

    [a sign pops up on the dashboard reading "This one, stupid!"]

    Eddie Valiant: You might just get your wish if we don't find out what happened to this.

    [Tosses a photo at Dolores]

    Roger Rabbit: What is it, Eddie?

    Eddie Valiant: Just look at it.

    [the photo is an enlargement of one of the photos of Acme and Jessica, with a paper in Acme's coat pocket circled]

    Roger Rabbit: Mister Acme's will!

    Eddie Valiant: Yeah, and I think Acme took the part of sound mind, and your wife of sound body.

    Roger Rabbit: Why, I resent that innuendo!

  • Roger Rabbit: [Crying] No wonder you hate me. If a toon killed my brother, I'd hate me too.

    Eddie Valiant: Come on, don't cry. I don't hate you.

    Roger Rabbit: Yes, you do.

    Eddie Valiant: No, I don't.

    Roger Rabbit: You do hate me. Otherwise, you wouldn't have yanked my ears all those times.

    Eddie Valiant: Well, I'm... I'm sorry I yanked your ears.

    Roger Rabbit: All the times you yanked my ears?

    Eddie Valiant: All the times I yanked your ears.

  • Roger Rabbit: P-p-please! Don't worry. Whatever you say. Yes, ma'am. Aye-aye, sir. Okey-dokey. Why, I'll take care of him like he was my own brother. Or my own sister.

    [Hits face on door]

    Roger Rabbit: Ow! Or my brother's sister. Or my second cousin...

  • Roger Rabbit: Let's forget it, there's nobody here!

    Eddie Valiant: Is that it, or are you scared?

    Roger Rabbit: P-p-p-p-please! Me, scared? Don't be ridiculous!

    [teeth chatter]

  • Roger Rabbit: Jeepers, another stupid newsreel! I hate the news!

  • Roger Rabbit: [to Jessica, after they are almost killed] I wasn't worried, were you?

  • Roger Rabbit: When you called Maroon, you told him you had the will, but you don't. When he finds out, he's gonna be mad! He might try to kill ya.

    Eddie Valiant: I can handle a Hollywood cream puff. I just don't want the odds to change. You cover my back. If you hear or see anything, beep the horn twice.

    [Eddie goes into Maroon's office]

    Roger Rabbit: Yeah, that's it, beep the horn twice. Cover your back. Boy, I'm ready: dukes up, eyes peeled, ears to the ground. Why, nobody gets the drop on Roger Rabbit!

    [a frying pan is held above his head from behind; it slams down on his head, knocking the rabbit out cold, after which the assailant drags Roger around behind the wall]

  • Roger Rabbit: [Emerges from the closet and slaps cuffs on Eddie] Eddie Valiant, you're under arrest! Pbbbbbbbbb...

    Eddie Valiant: Get outta there! Idiot, I got no keys for these cuffs!

  • [Roger is sitting outside of the Acme factory, crying while looking at pictures of him and Jessica]

    Roger Rabbit: Oh Jessica, please tell me it's not true.


    Roger Rabbit: [the pictures are of Roger and Jessica's wedding, them at a beach, and them hugging at a restaurant booth]

    Roger Rabbit: [sobs] P-p-p-please.

  • [Judge Doom posts a $10,000 reward for Roger's capture]

    Angelo: [whistles, then] Hey! I seen a rabbit.

    Judge Doom: Where?

    [in the secret room, Eddie turns to Roger]

    Eddie Valiant: See?

    Judge Doom: *Where*?

    Angelo: He's right here in the bar.

    [Angelo turns and puts his arm around the empty space above the bar stool next to him]

    Angelo: Well, say hello... Harvey.

    [the bar erupts into laughter]

    Roger Rabbit: [smirks at Eddie] I told ya so.

  • Eddie Valiant: GET OUT OF THAT CHAIR!... That's my brother's chair.

    Roger Rabbit: [looking at photo on desk] Yeah, where is your brother anyway? He looks like a sensitive and... SOBER fellow.

    Eddie Valiant: That's it. I'm calling the cops.

    Roger Rabbit: [leaving] Go ahead. Call the cops. I come here for help and what do you do? Yo turn me in. No, don't feel guilty about me. So long, and thanks for nothing.

    [slams door]

    Eddie Valiant: That's the closet! Stupe!
