The Pink Panther (2006 film)

2006 film by Shawn Levy

The Pink Panther is a film about the bumbling Inspector Clouseau, an entirely lost Inspector who is ridiculously moronic and practically accomplishes nothing throughout most of the movie, until around the ending areas. The cast includes Steve Martin, Kevin Kline, Jean Reno, Emily Mortimer, and Beyoncé Knowles.


Inspector ClouseauEdit

  • [tries to open car door] Idiot! Pull oop!
  • I'm going to do the good cop-bad cop routine.
  • It is a lovely wea'zer we are 'aving. I 'ope ze weazer stays zis mild. [Attacks the curtains as if someone is hiding there, the curtains fall] Ze' area is secure.
  • Good one!
  • Stop browbeating her! Can't you see she is sexy?!
  • Right now the killer is being surrounded by a web of deduction, forensic science and the latest in technology such as two-way radios and e-mail.
  • A woman is like a... is like a... artichoke; you have to do a bit of work, before you get to her heart.
  • [When Nicole asks if he should get some rest] Crime does not rest, Nicole.
  • [When asked if he thinks the killer is watching, while at a press conference] If I was the killer, I would certainly be watching and perhaps also recording for future playbacks. Because, you know, it is a big deal to be talked about on TV.
  • [Ending the press conference] But I have massage for the killer. Killer! I will find you! Because I am a servant of the nation, because justice is justice, and because Fwance is Fwance!
  • To dunlod (download) your new cell phone ringtone, press the button that says dunlod. I take the moose (mouse) and click, but do not dwag(drag), the button that says dunlod. the downloading fails and there is a power cut in Clouseau's apartment, a nearby cafe, and eventually all of Paris]
  • [To Ponton, repeated line] Good one.

  • [At the airport] What do you have in you pockets, sir? asks the airport security) In my pockets, I have a couple of amburtsferts [hamburgers].
  • Ponton, a crime is like a jigsaw puzzle. You have to have the jig, and you have to have the saw. You have the jig, but no saw! Where is your saw?! Oh! Your Honor! I want to perform a case, but I only have a jig, is that okay?
  • [Talking to Yuri] You need to work on your accent!
  • [Talking to Yuri] Your accent. I find it foony.
  • What, you don't think I speak Chinese? If I don't speak Chinese, what are we doing here? Oh, it must be funny to sit around the water cooler going, "Let's invite Clouseau out to lunch, and we will all speak Chinese, and he will not know what we are talking about!" Oh, is that what you'd like to do? Is that funny? Of course I speak Chinese!!
  • [After learning why Xania hid the Pink Panther diamond and realizing that her boyfriend gave it as an engagement] You are the rightful holder of the pink panther.

  • [After meeting Clouseau] Oh, he's perfect! Yes, we have definitely found our man. [Fails to see the ink leaking from his pen, which Clouseau damaged] Why do I feel wet?
  • [Discussing evidence and details of the murder] Dr. Pang is from China. The poison is from China. The Chinese are from China! It may be too early to say for certain, but I think our killer is Chinese.
  • [Instructing a subordinate to frame Clouseau] Don't ask why, just do it! He's got white hair, thin mustache, brimming with self-confidence and completely lost.
