The Great Mouse Detective
Movie Quote Quiz

Ratigan: Bravo! Bravo! A marvelous performance! Although I was expecting you fifteen minutes earlier. Trouble with the chemistry set, old boy?

Ratigan: Oh, Felicia, my precious, my baby. Did daddy's little honey-bunny enjoy her tasty treat?

Dr. Dawson: Oh, my! Upon my word. I've never seen so many toys.
Basil: Behind any of which could lurk a blood-thirsty assassin! So, please, Doctor, be very careful.

Dr. Dawson: Scoundrel's quite gone.
Basil: But not for long, Miss Flamhammer.
Olivia Flaversham: Flaversham.
Basil: Whatever.

Ratigan: Oh, my dear Bartholomew. I'm afraid that you've gone and upset me. You know what happens when someone upsets me.

Ratigan: Fidget, you delightful little maniac! You've provided me with a singular opportunity. Poor Basil. Oh, he's in for a little surprise.

Basil: Ratigan, no-one can have a higher opinion of you than I have, and I think you're a slimy, contemptible sewer rat.

Ratigan: Now, you will remember to smile for the camera, won't you? Say "Cheese."

Dr. Dawson: You're... despicable.
Ratigan: Hehe... Yes.

Fidget: I'm going! I'm going! I'm going.

Basil: Aha, Dawson! We've found it at last. Ratigan's secret lair. And it's filthier than I imagined.

Basil: There's always a chance, Doctor, as long as one can think.

Basil: Don't worry, old fellow. It's not entirely hopeless.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Dr. Dawson and Olivia are seeking Basil's help at his house, Basil sits down and starts playing the violin, holding it in his right hand and having the bow in his left. When Basil the stands up in another shot, he is holding the violin in his left hand (like it's supposed to be) and the bow in his left.
