Easter Island HeadEdit

  • Oh, you in trouble, Dum-Dum. You'd better run-run from Attila the Hun-Hun!
  • ME no dum-dum, YOU dum-dum! You bring me gum-gum?
  • QUIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET!!! My dum-dum want to speak.


  • I told you, I don't like to be manhandled!


  • We may be small, but our hearts are large... metaphorically speaking.


  • AH! Where is he?! I'll beat him with my fists! [Sees Larry] He looks like a weirdie!
  • Sweet dreams, cupcake! Pile-driver!

Teddy RooseveltEdit

  • Good lord, Lawrence, why are you slapping a monkey?
  • Actually, I never did any of those things. Teddy Roosevelt did. I was manufactured in a mannequin factory in Poughkeepsie. I never shot a wild beast. I'm not even brave enough to tell that beautiful woman [Sacagawea] I love her. But you... you gotta finish the job this time. You can't quit. I'm made of wax, Larry. What are you made of?


Larry Daley: Ah — Teddy Roosevelt.
Rebecca: Yes. A great visionary.
Larry: Yes, definitely. He was our fourth president, right?
Rebecca: Twenty-sixth.
Larry: Twenty-sixth.

[Larry jumps out from behind a wall and screams, scaring the other guards.]
Cecil: We're too old for surprises.
Larry: Really? I thought you liked surprises! Especially the fact that everything in the museum comes to life at night! That little sweetheart.

Teddy Roosevelt: Theodore Roosevelt, 26th President of these United States of America, at your service.
Larry: Okay. I'm Larry Daley, the new night guard...
Teddy Roosevelt: Pleasure to meet you, Lawrence! Now, if you excuse me [cocks shotgun], the hunt is afoot.
Larry: [mutters] Hunt's afoot.

Larry: Okay, Dexter. No hard feelings, okay?
[Dexter, a monkey, slaps Larry. Larry raises his hand to slap Dexter.]
Teddy Roosevelt: [threateningly] Lawrence...
Larry: But... you saw!
Teddy Roosevelt: Who is evolved?
Larry: [muttering] I am...
Teddy Roosevelt: Who is evolved?
Larry: I am!
