  • (repeated line) ALVIN!!!!
  • Oh, yeah?! If you love Uncle Ian so much, and you don't think I'm watching out for you, why don't you go live with Uncle Ian?!
  • My life is being sabotaged by talking chipmunks!

Ian HawkeEdit

  • Welcome to Jett Records!!
  • ¡¡Madre de Dios!! (Translation: Mother of God.) No!!!!


Alvin: That's it! I can't take this anymore! I can't! I give up! I'm sick of struggling for survival, competing with gophers and earthworms and that loser sparrow who always takes my nuts! And I'm especially sick of this stupid, stupid, tree!!
[buzzing noise]
Simon: Whoa!! What's happening?!?!
Theodore: Guys! I think he made it angry!
[the tree falls down with the screaming chipmunks in it]

Ian: Your song sucks, Dave!
Dave: What?!
Ian: Your song? It's awful. I hate it. Yeah, I mean, who's gonna sing it? Justin? Fergie? Not a chance. I need something new, I need something fresh.

Theodore: Where are we?
Alvin: Well, I think they remodeled our forest. I like it. Stylish, yet functional--
Theodore: Uh, but where did the mountains go?
Simon: Give me a break. We are in a building, Theodore.

[Dave puts basket with muffins and chipmunks inside in trash]
Alvin: Gross! Is this his house?
Simon: No. It's his garbage can.
Alvin: Oh, no.

Simon: We're getting off on the wrong foot. Allow us to introduce ourselves. Hello. I'm Simon. The smart one. He's Alvin.
Alvin: The awesomest one.
Theodore: And I'm Theodore.
Dave: Oh, nice to meet you. Now get out of my house!
Theodore: But.... we talk.
Dave: Which only makes me want you out of my house that much more. It's creepy. Unnatural. Somewhat evil.
Alvin: I kinda liked him better when he was unconscious.

Dave: Are you guys always like this?
Simon: We're kids, Dave.
Dave: Well, where are your parents?
Simon: When you're a chipmunk, your parents take care of you for a week, then they take off.
Alvin: Our parents were hippies. They left early to join a commune.

Dave: Off to bed. Come on. We start work tomorrow. I want you bright-eyed and bushy-tailed by 8:00.
Alvin: My tail isn't bushy till 9:00.
Dave: Not my problem. Now go to sleep.

Dave: What was that?!
Simon: Uh, nothing, just... a little stage fright? [whimpers]
Theodore: I thought my heart was gonna explode!
Alvin: We are not performing monkeys, Dave! Why do we have to sing for that guy anyway?
Dave: Well, how's this? Pretend I need the money and I hate my job and you're staying at my place so you owe me.
Theodore: We're sorry, Dave.
Dave: Yeah, that helps. [sighs] Never mind, I'm late for work.
Theodore: Ooh-ooh-ooh, Can we go with you?
Dave: What? So that you can mess that up, too? Uh-uh. Your going home.

Simon: [on phone to Dave] A little situation here, Dave. Theodore vacuumed up Alvin.
Theodore: [calls down vacuum tube] Alvin!
Alvin: [shouts from inside vacuum] Dave! Help!
Dave: [on phone to Simon] What?!
Simon: [on phone to Dave] Well, at least it wasn't the garbage disposal. [giggles nervously]
Theodore: [calls down vacuum tube] Just stay calm! [gets sucked into vacuum; shrieks]
Simon: [on phone to Dave] And there goes Theodore.
Dave: [on phone to Simon] Look, I can’t do this right now, okay?
Simon: [on phone to Dave] I absolutely understand, but, uh, sorry, Dave, quick question. [sees the sink on with water pouring down] How do you feel about an indoor pool?
Dave: [on phone to Simon] Look, if you flood my house, you’re dead. Out on the street, Capisce?

Dave: [shows the Chipmunks his vandalized presentation boards] Guys, what's this about?
Simon: Obviously, Theodore's butt.
Theodore: We told you we colored.
Dave: On my presentation boards? You got me fired!
Theodore: We didn't know.
[Dave turns off the TV]
Theodore: We're sorry, Dave.
Dave: Oh, you're sorry? That's fantastic. Sorry doesn't get my job back, now does it, Theodore? [notices his clothing on the kitchen floor] Why are my clothes all over the place?
Simon: Oh. We used them to mop up the water. Good idea, right?
Dave: [notices a weird pellet in front of Theodore] Oh, my God, Theodore, did you just...?
Theodore: Um, um....
Simon: It's a raisin, Dave.
Dave: Prove it.
Simon: [surprised; puts it in mouth] Mm-hmm.
Dave: Okay, you got me. Look, I wanna talk to all of you guys. Where's Alvin?
[Simon spits raisin out]
Dave: Alvin?
Simon [Turns to Theodore] You owe me big time!
Dave: Alvin?!
Alvin: [takes a shower in dishwasher; sings] Don't you wish your girlfriend was hot like me? Don't you wish your girlfriend was a freak like me.... [Dave opens the dishwasher, Alvin screams] There's this new thing! It's called "knocking"!
Dave: Get out!
Alvin: Uh, I'm waiting for the rinse cycle!
Dave: Out! [pulls Alvin out of the dishwasher]
Alvin: Whoa, whoa! I am taking a shower, here!
Dave: You know, if I made a list of my worst days ever, guess what?! Today, would be at the top of the list!
Alvin: And it is still early!
Dave: Clam it, sudsy! [Sighs] Okay.

Alvin: What?
Dave: Well, in case you didn't notice, I don't have a job anymore. My song?
Alvin: All right.
Simon and Theodore: Yeah.

Alvin: [trying to uncork a bottle] Stupid... cork... doesn't... [the cork comes loose and goes flying] Whoa! [it breaks a glass cabinet]
Claire: Oh, no!
Alvin: Yikes! [giggles nervously] Oops.
Dave: Not gonna say it.
Alvin: Uh-oh!
Simon: Good grief.
[champagne pours all over the floor]
Claire: Are you still not gonna say it?
Dave: Nope! [the champagne touches an outlet which spews sparks and smoke, startling him and Claire and causing a blackout in the house] I'm gonna say it! ALVIN!!!
Alvin: Okay!

Dave: Squirrels can't talk!
Alvin: Whoa, wap-ap-ap-oh. Watch it, genius. We are Chipmunks. Chipmunks!
Dave: Chipmunks can not talk either, Alvin! [turns on lights]
Simon: Well, our lips are moving and words are coming out.
Dave: This isn't happening. [closes his eyes, talking to himself] I am not talking to chipmunks. I am not talking to chipmunks.
Alvin: So, how's that working for you, Dave?
Dave: Uh, h-how do you know my name?
Alvin: I'll take that one. We read your mail. By accident.
Simon: You really oughta pay that utility bill, Dave. You ever hear of a credit rating?
Theodore: What was that?! [Turn on]
