TV Series

  • Any scene with Animated Lizzie.
  • From the Halloween episode, Lizzie is put on Balloon animal making duty and has no idea how to do it so she just holds up completely straight balloons.
    Lizzie: "Here. It's a worm. Here. It's a snake."
    Kid: "You suck."
    *Lizzie pops the balloon*
    Lizzie: "There. Now it's extinct."
  • "I! WANT! A BRA!"
  • Lizzie is panicking over how Kate's knocked over the bust of the principal and left her holding the bag. She asks Gordo for advice, expecting something that'll help. His idea: Canada.
    • Later, after a botched attempt to fix things...
    Gordo: (singing) O Canada... (gets elbowed to stop) That's all I know anyway.
  • When Kate breaks her arm and her friends turn their backs on her and kick her off the Cheerleading Squad. Lizzie feels bad for her. Miranda and Gordo...
    Together: (singing) Ding Dong, the witch is dead!

    Miranda: The wicked witch!
    Together: Ding Dong, the wicked witch is dead!
    (Lizzie looks on, exasperated)

  • In one episode, Matt decides he wants to be a Stuntman when he grows up.
    Matt: (wearing a helmet and with pillows taped all over his body) Dad, will you please run me over with the car?
    Sam: (not paying attention): Sure, Son, in a minute.
  • Upon finding out what Matt's doing to get a baseball card Melina owns:
    Sam: That's exortion.
    Jo: That's brilliance.
  • The episode where Matt pretends he's a superhero. He hides Lizzie's shoes, claiming they were stolen by the "Evil Shoe Baron". Prompting this exchange.
    Jo: You tell the Evil Shoe Baron that if he doesn't return your sister's shoes right away, he's going to spend the rest of his life in the Fortress of Solitude.
    Matt runs off.
    Lizzie: Good work, mom.
    Jo: I have battled the Evil Shoe Baron before.
  • Jo's attempt at emotional blackmail to get Lizzie to wear the sweater her grandmother knitted for her school pictures - that she "might not be around much longer", making it seem like Gammy Maguire is a frail old lady - is quickly shot down by Lizzie reminding her that not only does she teach wind-surfing lessons but her mother is still alive too.
  • During the "Freaky Friday" Flip episode:
    • While in Matt's body, Lizzie is now able to understand Lanny. Animated!Lizzie lampshades this.
    • Matt-in-Lizzie comes up with an excuse for why 'Lizzie' is wearing such a bizarre assortment of clothes to school - Matt donated her clothes to a travelling circus. Matt then gets an Oh, Crap! when Miranda suggests their parents send him to military school.
    • Melina proving to be Genre Savvy and accepting the "Freaky Friday" Flip without question.
    "We knew something was up when you walked past Clark Benson without sneezing in his pudding."
    • Kate's Humiliation Conga - frogs in her locker, slipping on a banana peel and getting chili poured all over her.
    Matt-as-Lizzie: You rang?
    Kate: You owe me an apology.
    Matt-as-Lizzie: I'm sorry you ran into a big bucket full of chili.
  • When Mr Digg and Sam become friends, Matt tries to do the same by inviting his Stern Teacher over so she can become friends with Jo. It doesn't go well. At all. Until she runs into Mr Digg - and turns into a Defrosting Ice Queen at once.
    "Matthew, don't worry about that homework I gave you. I have a feeling I won't even have time to grade it."
