Rover DangerfieldEdit

  • All night I'd sit up and beg, she told me I was too old to beg!
  • [after attacking one of the wolves] That one's for the three little pigs!
  • I guess that's my trouble, no class. I looked up my family tree, two dogs were using it!
  • Hey folks! I'll never dampen your holidays! [door slams shut] No respect. No respect at all.

DialogueEdit

Rover Dangerfield: [about playing fetch] He throws a stick, you run and get it, you bring it back and he throws it again! I don't get it! I mean, what's the point?
Raffles: Because it makes them happy and it gives them lots of exercise
Rover Dangerfield: If they want exercise, let them run and get it.
Raffles: So what should I do?
Rover Dangerfield: It's very simple. You do nothing.

Rover Dangerfield: Where's Flappy?
Queenie: Carmine fired him. He couldn't remember the routines.
Rover Dangerfield: Oh, I saw that coming. Flappy was dumb. Yeah, he used to walk backwards and wag his head. I mean dumb! Carmine taught him to sit, he forgot how to stand! And when Carmine paper-trained him, that was something. He went right on the paper. The only trouble is, Carmine was reading it!

Turkey: Let me tell you, I won't be here very long.
Rover Dangerfield: I tell ya, the way I see it, you probably won't be around after Christmas!
Turkey: Well, that would suit me just fine! Well, I might have known: There's absolutely nothing to eat here!
Rover Dangerfield: Yeah? Look in a mirror!
Turkey: Oh... I don't get it.
Rover Dangerfield: Don't worry about it, drumstick. You will!

[Rover attacks Rocky]
Rocky: [kicks him off] You dirty mutt!
Connie: Rocky, what are you doing?
Rocky: I thought I was rid of you for good!
Connie: 'Rid of you for good'?
[Connie punches him in the face]
Rocky: [furiously] What, are you taking the dog's side? Huh?
[Rocky grabs Connie until Rover pushes him, Rover and the other dogs chase him out the door]
Connie: Rover, NAIL HIM!
