Pinky and the Brain
- Pinky: Gee, Brain, what are we going to do tonight?
- Brain: The same thing we do every night, Pinky - try to take over the world!
- Brain: Pinky, are you pondering what I'm pondering?
- Pinky: Are you pondering cheese sticks?
- Pinky: Narf!
- Pinky: Zort!
- Pinky: Poit!
- Pinky: Troz!
- Pinky: Egad, Brain!
- Pinky: Gonk!
- Pinky: Fjord!
From Animaniacs shorts
- Brain: It must be inordinately taxing to be such a boob.
- Pinky: You have no idea.
- Pinky: Hmmm... let me think...
- Brain: Don't hurt yourself, Pinky.
- Brain: If I could reach you I would hurt you.
- Brain: Promise me something, Pinky. Never breed.
- Pinky: I'll try.
- Pinky: [after kicking him into the cage bars while doing his Russian dance] Whatcha doin' over there, Brain?
- Brain: Pondering your afterlife, Pinky.
- [During a parody of The Night Before Christmas]
- Brain: Pinky, I am in considerable pain.
- Pinky: Narf! Zort! Poit! Egad! I'm with you, Brain!
- Brain: Here we are, Pinky--at the dawn of time!
- Pinky: Narf, Brain. Wake me at the noon of time.
- Pinky: Egad! You astound me, Brain!
- Brain: That's a simple task, Pinky.
- Brain: Now, Pinky, if by any chance you are captured during this mission, remember you are Gunther Heindriksen from Appenzell. You moved to Grindelwald to drive the cog train to Murren. Can you repeat that?
- Pinky: Mmmm, no, Brain, don't think I can.
- Brain: They've turned into giant Swiss lederhosen-clad dancing yodelers.
- Pinky: Talk about unpredictable!
- Brain: Come, Mindy, it's time for us to conquer the world.
- Mindy: Why?
- Brain: By right of superior intelligence, I am best suited to guide the destiny of this planet.
- Mindy: Why?
- Brain: My empirical powers give me the mandate.
- Mindy: Why?
- Brain: Because it's something I want to do!!
From the Pinky and the Brain series
- [After seeing on a naval chart how close their objective is]
- Pinky: Oh, look Brain, it's so close, we'll be there before you can say "Poit!"
- Brain: We'll reach Mars before I yell 'Poit!',Pinky.
- Pinky: [Their submarine is filling up with water.] We're gonna make it! We're gonna make it, right Brain!? BRAIN??
- Brain: POIT!!!
- Pinky: You aren't going to get rid of me,are you Brain?I mean,look happened to Jerry Lewis after he split with Dean;all that stuff in your hair.
- Pinky: Egad Brain! I wish I was as smart as you.
- Brain: I wish you were as smart as a tree stump, Pinky.
- Pinky: Brilliant, Brain! Oh, one quick question.
- Brain: What?
- Pinky: Do sealions eat seazebras?
- Brain: You are going to be a help this time. Say it!
- Pinky: "You are going to be a help this time."
- Pinky: I think I'll ask Winnie if she wants to go to the movies with me. [barks to Winnie in sealion language; she starts swimming faster]
- Brain: You just said "Fetch me a big clown hat!"
- Pinky: Oh! What a good idea!
- Brain: [being attacked by an octopus] PINKY!!
- Pinky: Hi Brain. Do you know the lyrics to Muskrat Love?
- Brain: OCTOPUS!! HELLLP!!!
- Pinky: [singing to the tune of Muskrat Love] Octopus help... [stops] I don't think that's quite right...
- Brain: Where's Winnie? What's happened to the army?
- Pinky: I don't know. All I said to Winnie was... [barks in sealion]
- Brain: You witless sponge! You told her there was a school of overweight fish swimming nearby!
- Brain: [speaking in sealion language] You must get the army back at once.
- Winnie: [subtitled] Give me a fish and I will playfully nuzzle you.
- Brain: There's no time for me to give you another fish!
- Pinky: [speaks to Winnie in sealion language; she swims away] Winnie! Come back! I was only trying to tell her how much I like her.
- Brain: Unfortunately, it came out more like, "I'm a big billy goat so you'd better beat it, sister."
- Pinky: You know Brain I've been thinking I don't want to be an elf anymore.
- Brain: What do you want to be Pinky?
- Pinky: A dentist!
- Narrator: So they took their friend Christopher's advice and went to see Algore the Donkey, who lived on the very next page.
- Pinky: When does this scene start to animate, Brainie?
- Brain: It already has, Pinklet. The question is, when does Algore start to animate?
- Brain: Has it ever occurred to you, Pinklet, that your scarf is constricting the bloodflow to your head?
- Pinky: Yes! And it keeps my neck all cozy-warm.
- Brain: Luckily, I know the location of a veritable Fort Knox of honey, right here in Acme Woods!
- Pinky: Oooh, a fort! FORT! Oh, can we play Cowboys and Indians?
- Brain: No, but we can play Geniuses and Numbskulls.
- Pinky: How do you play?
- Brain: Like this! [hits Pinky with his stick]
- Pinky: Troz! Who won?
- Brain: As you know, people in today's body conscious society are obsessed with losing weight. My plan is to secretly replace all the artificial sweeteners in the world with real ones, thus rendering the world's population fat, slow moving, and completly toothless.
- Pinky: You mean like the guests on Jerry Springer?
- Brain: Exactly, Pinklet.
- Brain: After [Snowball], Pinky! He's about to engage the machine!
- Pinky: Poit! I didn't even know they were going steady. We really ought to bring a gift, Brain. [Brain grabs him and runs after Snowball.] You know where they're registered? Congratulations, Snowball! We're so happy for you and your fianceé! A hamster engaged to a big machine? What will people say?
- Brain: Stop being foolish, Pinky.
- Pinky: Oh you're right, Brain, as long as they're happy. We should get them something nice; a fondue set, maybe. I mean, after all, we are getting tight hats in the bargain.
- Brain: [After being struck by a tractor in a tornado] Curse you John Deere!
- Brain: I feel the need. I feel the need for expeditious velocity.
- Brain: The game does not conclude until the woman with the eating disorder ululates.
- Brain: What is Troz?
- Pinky: Why it's "Zort" in the mirror!Troz!
- Brain: The irony of it all, Pinky. Years of trying to take over the world, and all I had to do was say "moo".
- Pinky: Russia! I've heard of that place! Isn't it full of cheating, lying and backstabbing intrigue?
- Brain: The Cold War is over Pinky. Now Russia is a place of free-market capitalism.
- Pinky: What's free-market capitalism?
- Brain: Erm... cheating, lying and backstabbing intrigue.
- Hillary Clinton: Would you mind telling me who you are?!
- Brain: As if you didn't know.
- Hillary Clinton: Right. As if I didn't know.
- Pinky: Why, he's your guest of honor - the Brain!
- Brain: I am the subject of this whole conference.
- Hillary Clinton: We're here to discuss the human brain.
- Pinky: Egad! There's a human version of you? Scary!
- [Brain finds Billie at the controls of the machine]
- Pinky: Egad, Brain! Snowball's turned into a mouse!
- Brain: No, Pinky, it's Billie.
- Pinky: Billie's turned into a hamster? [Brain grabs him and smacks him with his hat repeatedly] She's a mouse! She's a hamster! She's a mouse! She's a hamster! She's a mouse and a hamster?(laughs deliriously)
- Bill Clinton: Hey, and don't forget - Saturday morning's the big global Schmëerskāhøvênathon for world peace.
- Brain: Schmëerskāhøvênathon? Pinky, do you know what this means?
- Pinky: Another preemption for Brand Spanking Fresh and Shiny New Doug?
- Pinky:...Then I said "If you change the 'P' to and 'O' then my name would be 'Oinkasso'!
- Brain:(about Snowball's plan)And execute me in the process.
- Snowball:Oh,don't be silly,Brain,it would take all the fun out of life;I derrive my greatest pleasure from making you squirm.
- Pinky:I derrive my greates pleasure from making Brain squirt milk out of his nose!(Snowball and Brain bop Pinky on the head)Natch!
- Brain: Look at these tapes! "It's a Sugary-Wugary Day" by Laffie. "Life's a Rosy-Posie Bed of Honey" by Marie Fluis and Pork Chop. The titles alone are enough to make my teeth rot!
- Pinky: I'll help you floss.
- Brain: I'll help you hurt!
- Brain: There's only one ride that interests me - the incredible thrill ride of taking over the world!
- Pinky: Mmm, I think there's a height requirement for that ride.
- Pinky: Wheee! Oh Brain, I love the teacup ride!
- Brain: Pinky, get out of that woman's teacup!
- Pinky: Isn't life wonderful, Brain? Just think, we started out as lab mice forced to spend the whole day working our way through frustrating mazes that went absolutely nowhere. Now we get to do what humans do! [camera zooms out to reveal the line they're standing in is frustratingly long]
- Brain: Hey, where's Elmyra?
- Pinky: Oh no, she's lost! We might never see her again!
- Brain: Stop trying to cheer me up, Pinky. She's got the tape.
- Boy: Mooom! I wanna go back to the ride where the little atronomic girl is tearing up all the fuzzy animals!
- Brain: Oh no! Elmyra's wandered into the plush toy store!
- Brain: Yes, finally! The Happy Sappy Children of Many Lands ride! Where cheering music will spread the message that a mouse should rule the world!
- Pinky: Oh no, Brain. Narf! You're thinking of that other park in Orlando.
- Brain: All I have to do head past Duraway, cross Finland, and get to the ride controls which are just behind Chad.
- Pinky: Chad who?
- Brain: Chad the country.
- Pinky: What a lovely name! Do you think it would suit me?
- Brain: Personally, I think "Dolt" would be more appropriate.
- Brain: Pinky, after I switch the tapes, I'll met you near Chad.
- Pinky: I'd like to meet Chad!
- Brain: Chad is not a person!
- Pinky: That ride's even better now that Baloney's singing.
- Elmyra: You know, I heard Baloney singing, but I didn't see him anywhere.
- Pinky: Maybe he's talking to Chad.
- Brain: Come, Pinky. We must leave this horrid place and prepare for tomorrow.
- Pinky: Why, Brain? What are we going to do tomorrow? ...I know! Tomorrow we'll get the right tape and come back to Duckyland!
- Brain: Oh no. Even the world isn't worth that. Nothing is going to get me to come back to this... to this Hieronymus Bosch-inspired nightmare world.
- Brain: Oh, look, it's time for a visit with Mr. Loyal Subject. [puts on puppet and has it say:] Hello, Your Highness. Hail you! [as himself] Hello, Mr. Loyal Subject. What's the secret word for today? [as Mr. Loyal Subject] The secret word for today is "Brain"! [as himself] Golly, that's me! [as Mr. Loyal Subject] That's right; it's important that our viewers must learn to bow before the Brain! [lights flash and Brain addresses the puppet] Hey, you said the secret word! You win!
- Pinky: Knock knock!
- Brain: My goodness, someone's at the door. Who could it be?
- Pinky: It's me, Pinky the Unstinky! Shut yer face! Shut yer face!
- Brain: Hello, Pinky the Unstinky.
- Pinky: Hello, Mr. Loyal Subject! Hello, Brain! [lights flash]
- Brain: You said the secret word!
- Pinky: I did? Um... what's the secret word, Brain? [lights flash]
- Brain: You said the secret word again!
- Pinky: Really? I've never won anything before. What do I win, Brain? [lights flash] Oh, this is so exciting!
- Brain: OK, that's enough.
- Pinky: Enough of what, Brain? [lights flash]
- Brain: Stop saying the secret word!
- Pinky: What's the secret word, Brain? [lights flash]
- Brain: Errrrgh! Stop saying "Brain"! [lights flash]
- Pinky: Ah! You won, Brain! [lights flash]
- Brain: Stop it, stop it, stop it!
- Pinky: Stop what, Brain? [lights flash]
- Brain: Okay, that's it! The secret word is not "Brain"!
- Pinky: Wuhahaha! Shut yer face! Shut yer face, Brain! [continues to repeat "Brain", with the lights flashing each time, until Brain hits him on the head with his sceptre)
- Brain: The new new secret word is "pain".
- Brain: Our ratings are in the toilet.
- Pinky: Oh, I'll get them.
- Zipp Twyman: I've never seen such high numbers! Your ratings have gone through the roof since you added Elmyra to the show!
- Brain: How ironic.
- Brain: And each year, in a misbegotten melange of civic pride and corporate boosterism, they [the Gristle Meat Company] throw a huge televised parade down the main street of town, the Meat Parade. And one lucky little girl is chosen to lead that parade on television before millions of people. Do you know who that lucky little girl is this year, Pinky?
- Pinky: Someone named Meat? [laughs] Meat!
- Brain: Meat my fist, Pinky.
- Brain: [as Elmyra's cousin, "Patty Ann"] Why, uh, hello, cousin Elmyra! I've missed you so.
- Elmyra: Don't you be all smarty-clown-nosey with me! You just came here to make time with my man!
- Brain: I wouldn't give two hoots for that walking cyst you call a "man".
- [Elmyra is hosting a pretend talk show.]
- Brain: That song was the most banal self-serving ditty I've ever heard. Elmyra might have a future in show business.
- Pinky: Um, Brain, speaking of show-biz, I am a guest today on Elmyra's Funtime Show. I'll be promoting my latest movie, The Great Pinky Adventure!
- Brain: An interesting title. Too bad Dumb and Dumber was already taken.
- Elmyra: And didn't you just make a fun movie-woovie?
- Pinky: Why, yes I did! It's called The Great Pinky Adventure, starring me! Perhaps you could run a clip and I'll explain what all about it.
- Elmyra: (pantomiming with a paper drawing) "Look out! I'm falling from a plane! What will happen to me?" "My name is Pinky Bignose. (crumples up the paper) This is scary! Narf! Zort!"
- Pinky: Um, excuse me, Elmyra, but that's not at all what The Great Pinky Adventure is about. And since it is my movie, I should make the sounds for it, y'see?
- Elmyra: It's MY show, Pinkly-winkly! [raspberry]
- Pinky: Yes, but it's my movie.
- Elmyra: Elmyra's Funtime Show is MY show, and I get to be in charge all the time!
- Pinky: Well! I shall tell all my celebrity friends not to be on your program, and to go to a nice party instead!
- Brain: Pinky? What are you doing? You're supposed to be with Elmyra!
- Pinky: In all my years in the movie business, I have never been treated so shabbily! I tell you, Brain, that show has gone to Elmyra's head! Give someone a little power, and they turn on you like a rogue duck! Zort!
- Brain: A rogue duck? Pinky, Elmyra has a pretend show. It's all inside her drum-like head.
- Pinky: Honestly, Brain, if you're going to make excuses for her unprofessional behavior, [stammers] ...I just don't care to listen!
- Pinky: Brain, do you think we learned an important lesson about relations and being popular and peer pressure?
- Brain: No, I don't think we did.
- Pinky: Whew! That's a relief.
- Rudy: Oh, it's you. Hey, wanna go push that Humpty Dumpty guy off his wall?
- Mrs. Antebbe: Well, party crashers! That does it. Everybody, it's time to go wee-wee-wee all the way home.
- Pinky: Narf! That sounds unsanitary, Cranky Mouseykin.
- Brain: Any questions?
- Pinky: Just one. If Fred Flintstone knew the giant order of ribs was going to tip over his car, why did he order them every week?
- Brain: It was an end title.
- Pinky: What?
- Brain: Fred Flintstone doesn't order ribs every week. That was only animated once, then music and voice tracks were added. The footage is run at the end of the show in the same spot everytime. It's called an end title.
- Brain: Any questions?
- Pinky: Just one. How come Elton John gets older and older but his hair gets younger and younger?
- Brain: It might be a weave.
- Pinky: What?
- Brain: Elton John's Hair, I think it might be a weave.
- Brain: Any questions?
- Pinky: Just one, Brain. How do they get the snow to fall when you shake up those little souvenir globes?
- Brain: Particles of a white material with a slight negative buoyance relative to to the water in which they are suspended.
- Pinky: How's that?
- Brain: Those souvenir globes, thats how they get the snow to fall in them.
- Brain: Any questions?
- Pinky: Just one. On Sabrina the Teenage Witch, her pet cat looks so real, how do they make it talk?
- Brain: It's a puppet.
- Pinky: What?
- Brain: The cat on Sabrina the Teenage Witch; it's a puppet. That's how they make it talk.
- Brain: Any questions?
- Pinky: Just one, do you have to wear a Fez at a turkish bath?
- Brain: You don't have to wear a Fez at a turkish bath.
- Pinky: How's that?
- Brain: A turkish bath is nothing more then a personal hygiene method using steam. Steam is released into a small room inducing perspiration that cleans the pores, it has nothing to do with hats.
- Brain: Any questions?
- Pinky: Yes, do you know the way to San Jose?
- Brain: Make a right at Oxnard.
- Pinky: Come again?
- Brain: It's the way to San Jose. You get to Oxnard and make a right.
- Rudy: What are you making? Some kind of cheese ray?
- Elmyra: Romeo Rudy, oh so cutie, your Juliet is here, baby!
- Brain: Ah, our first caller! Hello, you're on Brain's World.
- Pinky: Hi. This is famous TV star, eh... Byron Allen! I watch you all the time.
- Brain: You have any questions?
- Pinky: Just one. Who's Byron Allen?
- Brain: He was on Real People.
- Pinky: Huh?
- Brain: Byron Allen. he was the co-host of Real People, a pioneering infotainment show of the early 80s.
- Pinky: Ohhh, that explains it then.
- Brain: [regarding Rudy's room] What a landfill! There are probably germs in here the size of a nickel.
- Pinky: Egad! That cat hates us meeces to pieces! Doesn't he, Mr. Pixie?
- Brain: Stop calling me Mr. Pixie! This isn't funny, it's sick!
- Brain: And do you know why [everyone in Fairyland has problems]?
- Pinky: Um... is it because you're telling this story and you have a very pessimistic view of life?
From comic book stories
- Brain: [Referring to Pinky’s comic book] Pinky, who would want to read about two lab mice trying to take over the world? Who would want to read about my failures?
- Pinky: Oh, believe me, Brain, to a human, our nightly exploits would be a humorous diversion that would magically transmute the dreary workaday world into a fanciful realm of zany hijinks!
- Brain: It is here that my cheap workforce of trained iguanas will work night and day to make our shoes to my exacting specifications!
- Pinky: But, Brain, I thought elves made shoes.
- Brain: Kathie Lee Gifford hired them all, so I settled for second best.
- Pinky: Feel strange... my body, growing... Argh! I'm becoming the Incredible Hu--oh, wait, no, I'm just becoming normal Pinky again. Zort!
- Verminator: Hear me now, and listen laater. You are maaking me very aaangry. I don't need any fancy veapons. I vill destroy you vith my bare haands.
- Pinky: Oh no, Brain, what'll we do? He has a bear named Hans!
- Brain: The show must go on…
- Pinky: I believe it's coming down, Brain.
- Brain: Another comment like that, Pinky, and I swear I'll put the alligator scene back in.
- Brain: Pinky, my laughing gas is designed to make humans laugh to the point of freezing, under certain conditions. Do you know what those conditions are, Pinky?
- Pinky: Ummm... Suzanne Somers must be riding a horse and singing "Don't Fence Me In"?
The Brain: Pinky, are you pondering what I'm pondering? Pinky: I think so, Brain, but this time, you put the trousers on the chimp.
- Brain: [in response to the outfits Pinky has him try on; as Wilma Flintstone] Too old-fashioned. [as the Mona Lisa] How passé. [as Princess Leia] Where are we, Pinky? Outer space? [as Marge Simpson] D'oh!
- Brain: I'll chase [Snowball] 'round Cape Hope, and 'round the Horn, and 'round the Norway Maelstrom, and 'round Perdition's Flames before I give up!
- Pinky: Just don't forget to turn left at Albuquerque, Brain! Poit!
- Pinky: But Brain, why the toga? No one's worn those in years. Except for that one really strange man in Lancaster-Shire.
- Brain: Be quiet Pinky, or I shall have to hurt you.
- Brain: What can I do for fun, Pinky? That's it! I'll send several bills to Senate for ratification, then veto them all!
- Brain: At the key moment, I will assume control of the world's loudspeakers and bombard the masses with the most annoying sound known to mankind.
- Pinky: Fran Drescher's voice? Poit!
- Brain: The 24-hour deadline has passed, yet there has been no message from Earth! It is most curious. Perhaps I was too lenient.
- Pinky: Either that or everyone's gone back to reading books.
- Brain: Pinky, remind me to hurt you later.
