The Cat Quotes:

  • The Cat: [showing his car] Here she is, the Super Luxurious Omnidirectional Whatchamajigger, or S-L-O-W for short.

    Sally: S-L-O-W?

    The Cat: Yeah, S.L.O.W. It's better than the last thing we had: Super Hydraulic Instantaneous Transporter.

    Conrad: Oh, you mean...

    The Cat: No! Quick! To the S.L.O.W.!

  • [after cutting his tail off with a meat cleaver]

    The Cat: Alright, you win. Concrete, you drive.

    [gives Conrad the wheel]

    Conrad: Are you serious?

    The Cat: I don't know. A little voice inside of me is saying, "This is a bad idea." But I can barely hear that little voice, because an even louder little voice is screaming, "Let the twelve-year-old drive!" Now punch it.

    Conrad: This is awesome!

    Sally: I want to drive.

    The Cat: I think that's a great idea.

    [Vaudeville keyboard music]

    Sally: There is?

    The Cat: Yes. It involves... murder!

    [More vaudeville keyboard music]

    Conrad: That's your option?

    The Cat: [normal voice] No. You guys both had options. I just wanted to have one too.

    The Cat: [back to sinister] Or did I?

    [More vaudeville keyboard music]

    Sally: Cat, you're not helping!

  • Sally: [jumping on the couch] Like being in the circus!

  • The Cat: You pay this woman to sit on babies? That's disgusting. I'd do it for nothing.

  • The Cat: [as the cook] Delicious cupcakes are just minutes away.

    The Cat: [as a cooking show host] Did you just say "minutes away"? That's impossible!

    The Cat: [as the cook] And you're ugly, just like your mum.

  • Thing Two: Don't belittle me.

    The Cat: Ah, yes of course. Thing 2 would like to clarify that just because he wears the number 2 does not imply in any way that he's inferior to Thing 1.

    Thing Two: And all of the above.

    The Cat: He says you may feel free to call him Thing A if you like. He will also accept Super Thing, Thing King, Kid Dynamite, Chocolate Thun-da or Ben.

    Thing Two: Ben.

  • The Cat: [English accent] I'll get you, and it'll look like a bloody accident.

    The Cat: My place, what do you think?

  • The Cat: Without my hat, I'm just your garden variety six-foot tall talking cat.

  • The Cat: Hey, Rhode Island license plate. You never see those.

  • The Fish: Stop this right now!

    Conrad: Who said that?

    The Fish: Me! Remember, the fish? Came home in a baggy, loved me for two weeks, and then *nothing*!

    Sally: The fish is talking.

    The Cat: Well, sure, he can talk. But is he saying anything? No, not really.

  • The Cat: [closing the crate after Conrad opened it] Listen, Condax... you probably don't wanna do that.

    Conrad: Why not? It's just a crate.

    The Cat: Who, Me? Why I'm The Cat in the Hat, there's no doubt about that. I'm a super fundiferous feline, who's here to make sure that you're..."meline"..."key lime"..."turpentine". I got nothing! I'm not so good with the rhyming, not really, no. Look, I'm a cat that can talk that should be enough for you people!

    [starts singing]

    The Cat: How much is that canine American in the window.

  • Sally: Stop! That's...

    SallyConrad: Mom's dress!

    The Cat: This filthy thing?

    Sally: She was gonna wear that tonight and you ruined it.

    [snaps, snaps]

    The Cat: Mmm-mmm-hmm yeah.

    [snaps, snaps]

    The Cat: Mmm-hmm.

    The Cat: Meow.
