- [To Elya Yelnats] If you forget to come back for Madame Zeroni, you and your family will be cursed for always and eternity.
- [To Elya Yelnats] You must carry Madame Zeroni up the mountain and sing while I drink so I can get strong, too.
- [Repeated line] Excuse me?
- [When Armpit tries to pass off a stove knob as something he found] Are you trying to be funny, or do you just think I'm stupid?
- [Orders Mr. Pendanski to fill Stanleys canteen] If that's too much trouble, you can grab a shovel and Caveman here can fill the canteens.
- [About her rattlesnake venom nail polish] It's perfectly harmless... [strokes Stanley's cheek with her fingers] when it's dry.
- [When asked what they will say to Stanley's lawyer when she returns looking for him] You'll do as I say. [Leaves]
- [To Stanley, when he tried to take a bottle of soda out of Mr. Sir's hand] Well, you're a bag a trash.
- [To Stanley] You don't bother them thew won't bother you,
Being bit by a rattler isn't the worst thing that can happen to you. You won't die,
But, you don't want to get bit by a yellow spotted lizard. That is the worst thing that can happen to you. You will die a slow and painful death.
- [When the Warden begs him to let her look in the trunk] Excuse me?
- [Voice-over] Now, I don't really believe in the family curse, but when things go wrong, it kind of helps if you can blame it on someone. And for me, things went wrong a lot.
- [When asked who's fault if is he is at the camp by Mr. Pendanski] My no-good-dirty-rotten-pig-stealing-great-great-grandfather. That's who it is.
- [Walks into the tent after Mr. Pendanski, who is inside, says that no one cares about Zero] I do.
- [Voice-over] I guess you'll have to fill in the rest of the holes yourself.
- [To Zero, unknowingly referring to Sam's donkey] You know what I keep thinking? Imagine how fine this Mary Lou probably looked in a bikini.
- I'm not stupid. I know everyone thinks I am. I just don't like answering stupid questions.
- [Last line, after end credits] But if you forget to come back for Madame Zeroni, you and your family will be cursed for always and eternity.
- Stanley Yelnats: [runs to Armpit] Hey, Theodore. Is there a place I can fill my canteen up with water?
- Armpit: [puts Stanley in a headlock] Yo, my name is not Theodore. [pushes Stanley to the ground] It's Armpit. There's a water spigot over there.
