Funny: Dr. Dolittle
  • The scene where John is dealing with the dog who has OCD. He's trying to get him to not obsess over throwing the ball, but it's not working so Lucky and Rodney cry out. "Throw the Damn Ball!" and Rodney delivers a great comeback, "You can't save 'em all, Hasselhoff!"
  • When John pretends he's bought Lisa a fancy new sports car. And teases her about it.
    Lisa: Oh, my God! John, you didn't!
    John: No, I didn't. The van's around the corner. But don't tell me you don't care about money.
    Lisa: That's not funny.
    John: (starts imitating her) Oh John, you didn't! You didn't!
    Lisa: (starts laughing under her breath) That's not funny.
  • When poor Maya asks her dad to find her missing pet guinea pig. And her dad doesn't comfort her at all.
    Dr. Dolittle: I'll put down some of that sticky paper for him.
    Maya: No, not that!
    Dr. Dolittle: It'll be fine; you peel him right off it, he'll live.
  • The whole Dolittle/Rodney scene. Which eventually ends with Rodney's cage is strapped to the top of Dolittle's car, which happens to be cruising down the highway!
    Rodney: ... Come on, Doc! I'm getting whisker-whipped up here! Hey - this is cruel to animals!
    Dr. Dolittle: One more word, and I'm letting you out! I'll leave you in the wild! With the REAL animals! See how much talk you do when squirrels are kickin' your ass in!
    Rodney: Fine, then I'll just sing! (he then proceeds to sing "Blowin' In the Wind," way off tune) ..."The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind..."
    Dr. Dolittle: SHUT UP! (turns the radio way up)
    Rodney: (still singing) ... This guinea pig is blowin' in the wind!
    Dr. Dolittle: I can't hear you! I'm groovin'!
    Rodney: ...Why do they call me "guinea pig," anyway? I ain't Italian, and I'm not pork...!
    Dr. Dolittle: SHUT UP, I SAID!
  • Then, later, Dr. Dolittle arrives at the camp and Rodney is up on the roof. He asks his Dad if they still have those B.B. guns he used to play with when he was a kid, and Rodney shouts "Crazy man! Psycho! Lunatic!"
  • John's breakdown at the lunatic asylum.
    John: That't a all a' y'all! Leave me alone! Stop talking to me !!! AAAAAAAAAAH!! AAAAAAAAH !!! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!
  • Lucky's suggestion for a name: "How about 'please mommy, not him'?"
  • When the good doctor is talking to Lucky for the first time, we get this:
    Dolittle: Stop it! You can't talk! Dogs don't talk!
    Lucky: What do you think barking is, an involuntary spasm?
