...signed, Daddy (the first man who ever loved you)
— Who Am I Without Him? by Sharon G. Flake
Peppermint Patty: Hey, Chuck see what my dad gave me for my birthday? A dozen red roses!
Charlie Brown: Wow!
Peppermint Patty: He said that soon, I'm going to be a beautiful young lady and all the boys are going to be calling me and giving me things and taking me out on dates... so he wanted to be the first one to ever give me a dozen red roses! He calls me a "rare gem".
Charlie Brown: Your dad likes you. Happy birthday.
Peppermint Patty: (staring happily at the roses) Suddenly, I feel very feminine!
"Girls don't love their fathers? Since when? Since I got to be sixteen?"
—Judy, Rebel Without a Cause
"You have a little girl. An adorable little girl who looks up to you and adores you in a way you could never imagine. I remember how her little hand used to fit inside mine. How she used to sit in my lap and lean her head against my chest. She said that I was her hero."
—George, Father of the Bride
Kiara: My father says to never turn your back on an Outsider.
Kovu: You always do what daddy says?
Kovu: Betcha do. Bet you're daddy's little girl!
Homer: Little Lisa, Lisa Simpson. You know, I always felt you were the best thing my name ever got attached to. Since the time you learned to pin your own diapers, you've been smarter than me.
Lisa: Oh, Dad —
Homer: No, no, let me finish. I just want you to know I've always been proud of you. You're my greatest accomplishment and you did it all yourself. You helped me understand my own wife better and taught me to be a better person, but you're also my daughter, and I don't think anybody could have had a better daughter than you—
Lisa: Dad, you're babbling.
Homer: See? You're still helping me.
— The Simpsons, "Lisa's Wedding"
