Clifford the Big Red DogEdit

  • [pacing left and right] I wonder if T's found anything. I wonder if he's okay. I wonder if we should go in and check on him.
  • [to Birdy] I know how you feel. When I was a little, tiny puppy, I couldn't even jump on the couch.
  • [to T-Bone] Remember, T-Bone: "I can do it."
  • She is trying to trick us T-Bone. And after she promised to stop!
  • Swimming's a lot more fun than playing tricks any day.
  • They sure are cute, but Mr. Bleakman doesn't like anyone to play in his backyard. I'd better tell them to leave.
  • [in deeper Voice] I'll show around the big place's around the island.
  • [chuckles] She'll never find me here.


  • You're me? How could you be me when I'm me?
  • Right. Come back, you're still half dirty!
  • We were really worried about you, Cleo. That wasn't nice.
  • Come on, Clifford, last one in is an even more rotten dog biscuit.


  • Have I ever steered you wrong?
  • I wonder if you could stand still for a minute. You're making a hole in the ground!
  • Yeah ... ... but now I'm over it.
  • I was just showing you how not to do a head bop... You see, what happens when you take your eye off the ball.
  • The super-duper submarine. The S.S. Icky Dirty Muddy Dog.
  • I'm sure it'll disappear as soon as we put on the fruity, stinky, smelly stuff.
  • Steak and stew, I see you!
  • How come I'm outside, and Susie gets to stay inside with Mrs. Diller?
  • Ahem hem. What am I? Chopped kibble?


Cleo: Have I ever steered you wrong?
Clifford the Big Red Dog: No, we just met! We never wen't to Rocky Point for a long time!
Cleo: Then, let's go!

Mac: [while he, Cleo and T-Bone play tug-of-war] Go, Cleo! Go, T-Bone! Go... Cleo!
Cleo: Hey, whose side are you on, anyway?
Mac: On the winner's side, of course.

Cleo: [crying] It's gonna work real soon.
Clifford: Hic! Hic! Hic!
Cleo: I don't this this is gonna work.

Cleo: I guess I was kind of afraid.
T-Bone: You were afraid?! Of what?

Emily Elizabeth: I can't find Vaz's camera. This is awful.
Mrs. Howard: Ha ha. I'm surprised you can find anything in here, Emily Elizabeth.

Sheriff Lewis: Good boy, T-Bone. Emily Elizabeth, you're under arrest and going to jail.
T-Bone: Uh-oh, Sheriff Lewis got Emily Elizabeth.

Cleo: I think the rules say I get to do 47 things as leader and I've only done eight so far.
[T-Bone whines]
Clifford: I don't remember that rule.
Cleo: Well, that's the way the professionals play it.

Oscar Owens: RruFFF!
T-Bone: Rufff!
Oscar Owens: ARRR! Oh, Hello!
Mac: [keeping his mouth smiled] Welcome to Birdwell Island.
Clifford the Big Red Dog: [in deeper Voice] I'll show around the big place's around the island.
Oscar Owens: W-W-Well that's great! we did.

Emily Elizabeth: Do you know any shapes, Clifford?
Clifford the Big Red Dog: Uh-uh.
Emily Elizabeth: Are you sure? Can you make a square?
[Clifford takes several deep cleansing breaths of air slowly and deeply until his chest gets very big, and then shapes himself into a giant square]

T-Bone: You should go home, Mac. Jetta is worried about you.
Mac: I can't go home. Look.
[Mac shows T-Bone, Cleo and Clifford the sweater he accidentally ruined]

Clifford: Hey, guys. Just remember our people-food rule. If it drops on the round or it's headed that way.
Cleo and T-Bone: It belongs to the dogs and that's okay.

Clifford the Big Red Dog: I'm a problem. Mr. Bleakman said so. They can't afford to keep me.
T-Bone: Maybe you just misunderstood him. I misunderstand people all the time.
Cleo: You don't say...

Cleo: You know that shampoo and stuff we found?
Clifford the Big Red Dog: Uh-huh.
Cleo: Well, I don't think it was shampoo and stuff.

Mrs. Bleakman: A big dog can be a big help.
Mr. Bleakman: Hmpf. I'm just glad we didn't have to ride on his back.

[Cleo and T-Bone climb on Clifford's head]
Cleo: I call front!
T-Bone: That's my spot!
Cleo: You were there last time.
T-Bone: Was not!
Cleo: Was too!
T-Bone: Was not!
Cleo: Was too!
T-Bone: Was not!
Cleo: Okay, we'll take turns. My turn first!

K.C.: The first thing Detective Mike usually does is a stakeout.
T-Bone: Stakeout? Mmm... I love steak.

Jetta: You can help me hook up my VCR.
Emily Elizabeth and Mary: VCR?

[Cleo and Clifford recite a jump rope rhyme as Cleo jumps]
Cleo and Clifford: Bowser Bites, what a treat! That is what I like to eat! Tummy Yummies taste so great! You eat one, and I'll eat eight!
