Luigi: [as he drives the van] You know, I read that sea turtles travel thousands of miles on instinct.
Mario: Not in New York traffic, they don't.

Sergeant: Name.
Mario: Mario.
Sergeant: Last name.
Mario: Mario.
Sergeant: [to Luigi] Okay. What's your name?
Luigi: Luigi.
Sergeant: Luigi Luigi?
Luigi: No. Luigi Mario.
Sergeant: Okay, look, how many Marios are there between the two of you?
Luigi: There's 3. There's Mario Mario and Luigi Mario.
Sergeant: Mike! Mike! Help these Marios around the side.

Toad: [sings] Oh, oh, oh.
I'm sittin' here in a cramped detention,
with brothers from another dimension.
Thinkin' 'bout my... [stops] Say, what's another word that rhymes with "Dimension"?
Mario: Yeah, tension, and I'm full of it, so shut up.

[in the squad car, a wanted poster of the Mario Bros. flashes on a TV screen naming them Alien Plumbers]
Luigi: Aliens? We gotta deal with aliens too?
Mario: Luigi, we're the aliens!
Luigi: We are? Wow, cool!

Sergeant: Nobody touches President Koopa!
Luigi: [rubs his eyes in pain] You're Koopa?! But you said you were one evil...
Koopa: evil, egg sucking son of a snake. Did I lie?

Koopa: Now, where's the rock?
[Iggy and Spike look at each other, then at Koopa]
Iggy and Spike: Rock, sir?
Koopa: The meteorite piece that she wears around her neck, and I told you not to forget it!
Spike: That rock!
Iggy: I told you not to forget it!
Koopa: And I told you to remind him! Without that piece, the meteorite lays dormant. I'll not be able to merge the dimensions! Where is it?!
Iggy and Spike: [nervously] The plumbers took it.
Koopa: [whispers] Plumbers? [to Lena] Plumber alert!

[the Marios try to escape in a police car]
Mario: Where's the starter on this thing?
Luigi: I got a feeling about this, Mario-roni.
[types the codes to the strange controls to start the car]
Mario: I didn't know you could do that.
Luigi: Comes from sittin' on my butt all day playing video games. That's what.

Sergeant: Mario Brothers!
Mario: [in his cell with Luigi] Yeah! That's us! You better get a lawyer or get us outta this chicken coop!
Sergeant: You got one.

[the Marios capture Iggy and Spike and tie them near lizards]
Mario: If you two don't start talkin', we gonna leave you to these guys for lunch.
Luigi: Now, where's Daisy?
Spike: No, no, no, no. Where's the rock, scallywag?
Luigi: Where's Daisy, butt breath?!
Iggy: Where's the rock, over-weaning rogue?!
Luigi: Not 'til you give us Daisy, biscuit head!
Spike: Where is the rock?!
Mario: SHUT UP!!
