Our Gang, also known as The Little Rascals or Hal Roach's Rascals, was a long-lived series of comedy short films about a troupe of poor neighborhood children and the adventures they had together. The films were produced for movie theatres by Hal Roach from 1922 to 1938, and by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) from 1938 to 1944. In the mid-1950s, the 80 Roach-produced shorts with sound were syndicated for television under the title The Little Rascals, as MGM retained the rights to the Our Gang trademark.

Alfalfa: "Gee, you look pretty! Diamonds an' everything!"
Darla: "Oh yes indeed; I sing and I make hundreds an' thousands of dollars!"

Alfalfa: I'm the Barber of Seville! Figaro! Figaro! Figaro! How do you like that?
Opera Singer: Why, it's preposterous!
Alfalfa: Thank you very much! You're not so bad yourself!

from the 1994 movie

Mr. Welling: If you were my kids, I'd punish you.
Stymie: If we were your kids, we'd punish ourselves!

Darla: Oh, I hate you, Alfalfa.

Buckwheat: (reading a note from Alfalfa to Darla) Dear Darla, I hate your stinkin' guts! You make me vomit. You are scum between my toes! Love, Alfalfa.

Twins: They like to moon ya!
Buckwheat: No, we don't!

Uh Huh: What a relief!

Spanky: You can't treat people this way, mister!
Mr. Welling: You're not people, you're kids.

Darla: Alfalfa, this is a side of you I never saw before!

Darla: This tastes like somebody poured it through an old boot!
Froggy: Actually, it's a sneaker!

Stymie: Porky, you sure know how to make a sand-wich!
Porky: That wasn't sand, that was cat litter.
Buckwheat: Don't worry, it's pretty fresh!
