An adventure so big... even the world's richest kid can't afford to miss it!Taglines


Regina RichEdit

  • [After the laser gun has destroyed her nose on Mount Richmore] Oh, my God! My nose! I look like Michael Jackson!

Herbert CadburyEdit

  • Well... I'm already wanted for attempted murder, escaping from jail, and blowing up an aircraft. Breaking and entering sounds right up my alley. Let's kick some butt, shall we?

Lawrence Van DoughEdit

  • [Annoyed with his chauffeur after stepping out of his limo and into a puddle] 37-and-a-half miles of driveway, and you park in the 5 feet with a puddle!


[Richie wants to play baseball with Gloria's sandlot-team]
Richie Rich: Come on. Let me hit.
Gloria: Forget it; you probably couldn't even hit a BEACH BALL!
Richie Rich: I could hit it off of YOU.
Gloria: [insulted] All right - You think you're so hot? Put your money where your mouth is!
Richie Rich: You mean bet?
Tony: Yeah. $5 says she could put you away for keeps.
Gloria: $5? How about $10?
Richie Rich: Okay - Seems a little steep, but $10 thousand it is.
[Richie takes a wad of bills out of his pocket; the other kids are shocked]
Gloria: No, not $10 thousand. $10 dollars.
Richie Rich: Oh, $10 dollars. Okay.
Herbert Cadbury: Master Richie, I do think it unseemly in the extreme for you to take these - children's money.
Gloria: What are you doing, Mr. Fancy Pants? Asking the old guy for batting tips?
Herbert Cadbury: [insulted] Take their backsides to the cleaners, Master Richie.

School Teacher: Let's move on to case study #12: Your company is in dire straits. Sales are down 50% due to stiff price competition. Dividends are falling. Stockholders are demanding that you step down as chairman of the board. Now, here's your problem: How do you rally the board of directors to your side AND stave off impending bankruptcy? Reynolds?
Reynolds: [Reading a newspaper] I'll have my secretary get back to you on that one.
School Teacher: [sighs] Ellsworth, how would you get the board on your side?
Ellsworth: [Playing miniature golf] Bribe someone.
School Teacher: [Stares blankly] Sit down, Ellsworth. Reginald, what would you do?
Reginald: [Being fitted by a tailor] What would I do? Simple. I'd float a rumor that we're the object of a takeover bid. And as soon as our stock went up, I'd sell.
School Teacher: That's not only unethical, Reginald, it's illegal.
Reginald: I'm only 12. I can't be held legally responsible.
School Teacher: Hmm, good point.
[Richie, having a clear distaste towards Reginald, sends a goofy-looking drawing of him to Cuthbert through a fax machine. Cuthbert laughs, and teacher notices. He walks over to Richie, folding his arms]
School Teacher: Richard, are you and Cuthbert passing notes again?
Richie Rich: Um, no, sir.
School Teacher: Cuthbert?
[Cuthbert has already sent the drawing in a shredding machine. The teacher looks back at Richie, who casually smiles at him, and the teacher just rolls his eyes]

Reginald: (Jabs Ellsworth in the rear with sword during Fencing session at school) Watch your rear, Ellsworth! First rule of defense. (To valet delivering him a coffee) THIS is a cappuccino! I asked for a decaf cafe latte, you incompetent imbecile! If you can't even do the job you're-
(Richie returns the favor to Reginald for Ellsworth, causing Reginald to spill the coffee all over him. He turns to Richie embarrassed. Everybody, especially Ellsworth, laughs at him.)
Richie Rich: First rule of defense, Reg: always watch your rear.

Richard Rich Sr.: How do you put up with me, Regina?
Regina Rich: Well, you are worth $70 billion.
Richard Rich Sr.: Is that the ONLY reason?
Regina Rich: [she lightly gives him a kiss] No. You also have a cute butt.
[she walks away sensually; he looks embarrassed, then chuckles]
Richard Rich Sr.: Hey, Cadbury, did you hear that?
Herbert Cadbury: Indeed, sir. Madam admires your butt. I'm most delighted for you.

Herbert Cadbury: Excuse me, sir. It's a telephone call, from the President.
Richard Rich Sr.: Which country?
Herbert Cadbury: This one, sir.
Richard Rich Sr.: Ah...Probably needs another loan.

Pee-Wee: Hey, man, just checking out your crib here.
Richie Rich: My crib?
Herbert Cadbury: I believe that's street slang for home, sir, an idiom.
Omar: Who you callin' an idiom?

[Having forced Richard Sr. and Regina to open Mount Richmore, Van Dough finds that instead of money, it contains baby pictures, comic books, baseball cards, finger paintings, etc.]
Van Dough: This is incredible! This is amazing! This is...This is JUNK!
[Regina and Richard Sr. both look insulted]
Regina Rich: Junk?
Van Dough: Bronze dog bones? What? Accordians? Baby pictures, tricycles, kites... [Picks up a trophy] Bowling trophies?
Richard Rich Sr.: Oh, do you remember that, darling?
Regina Rich: Oh, our first date!
Van Dough: What is all of this crap?
Regina Rich: These are our priceless possessions!
Van Dough: Where are the gold bars... the diamonds... the negotiable bearer bonds, the money? [Aims his gun at Richard Sr.] WHERE'S THE MONEY?
Richard Rich Sr.: In banks. Where else? And the stock market, real estate...
Van Dough: No! Is this some kind of joke? You're telling me there isn't one single solitary gold bar, or emerald, or $1,000 bill in this entire mountain?
Richard Rich Sr.: Well, I'm sorry to disappoint you, Lawrence, but that's not what we treasure.
Van Dough: [to Ambler] Shoot them. Shoot them now, please!
[Ambler is about to shoot Richard and Regina, when Richie appears, brandishing a sword]
Richie Rich: What's the matter, Mr. Van Dough? Can't do it yourself?
Regina Rich: Richie, get out of here!
Richie Rich: It's okay, Mom. I don't think he has the guts to shoot anyone.
Richard Rich Sr.: Richie, no! [Ambler points his gun to Richard's throat]
Van Dough: Generally, you're right, but... on this occasion, I think I'll make an exception. [shoots Richie, not realizing he is wearing Keenbean's special spray that makes his clothes bulletproof; Richard and Regina scream]
Richie Rich: Cool.


  • An adventure so big... even the world's richest kid can't afford to miss it!
  • Without the inventions, the butler, and the private fast-food restaurant...he's just a normal 12-year-old billionaire.
  • Five buddies, one butler, and a dog on an adventure so big... Even the world's richest kid can't afford to miss it.
