1994 Film

  • "Oh my God my nose! I look like Michael Jackson!"
  • The father commenting on the President asking for another loan.
  • Van Dough is having a Villainous Breakdown when he finds that the Rich Family Vault that he's been trying to break into the entire movie turns out to be filled with keepsakes of minimal monetary worth. He starts demanding to know where the money is, to which Mr. Rich responds in his best are-you-kidding-me voice: "In banks, where else?"

  • Van Dough manages to make it up the ladder on the Scaffolding in Mt. Richmore. He's about to shoot Richie (in the face where Richie is not protected by bulletproof 'armor'), only to find he is out of bullets. As if that wasn't bad enough as it was, Rich flashes him that classic Culkin smirk before kicking the ladder over with Van Dough on it.
  • Cadbury had to steal the clothes from the guy who was sent to kill him. After escaping prison, he notices an old woman looking at him in fear. He only told her a pleasant "Morning, madam", but she slowly ran off. Cadbury gives the old woman an annoyed look before following Richie.
  • When Richie decides to play with the other kids, Cadbury protests, "But they probably haven't even been vaccinated!"
  • Professor Keenbean trying to make an infomercial for his invention, which turns garbage into bowling balls instead of a bedpan, which he tried to program it to do.
    "We take fifty pounds of yesterday's garbage, and transform it into a beautiful new bed--...bowling ball! Here's one! Twins! What family doesn't need a spare? Oh boy, here they come! Here they come!" (presses the off button) "Cut! Cut!" (accidentally drops a ball on his foot)
    • Not to mention, "Hey, need a new bedpan? I know I do!" is a pretty funny line by itself.

    • After Richie accidentally gets his Robobee smashed (by Cadbury), Keenbean chase after him.
    "COME BACK HERE! [grabs the impervious spray] YOU'RE GONNA NEED THIS!"
    • Also, while demonstrating his invention, he said it can make garbage into anything, "from bedpans to bowling balls".
  • When Richie decides to put an end to Van Dough's Tyrant Takes the Helm, Van Dough tries to talk him out of it. However, Richie spends the talk making funny faces at him through a magnifying glass, ending with a magnified Culkin smirk.
  • The gang managed to hit Nash with a bag of manure, knocking him out, and Cadbury speaks into Nash's walkie-talkie with a gruff Americanized voice, to try to cover up the situation.
    Cadbury: Yeah, this is Nash. False alarm. Everything is slicker than the snot on a doorknob.
    [Richie and his friends' roll their eyes.]
    Cadbury: (shrugged, whispers) I heard it in prison.
    TV Guard: (annoyed) Roger that. Damn Twinkies are starting to rot his brain.
