[Mr. Potato Head rearranges his facial features crazily]
Mr. Potato Head: Hey, Hamm. Look, I'm Picasso!
Hamm: I don't get it.
Mr. Potato Head: You uncultured swine! What're you lookin' at, ya hockey puck?

[Rex roars at Woody]
Woody: [in a bored tone] How ya doin', Rex?
Rex: [stops roaring; calmly] Were ya scared? Tell me honestly.
Woody: I was close to being scared that time.
Rex: I'm going for fearsome here, but I just don't feel it. I think I'm just coming off as annoying.

Hamm: So, where you from? Singapore? Hong Kong?
Buzz: Well, no. I'm actually stationed at the Gamma Quadrant, Sector Four. As a member of the elite Universe Protection Unit of the Space Ranger Corps, I protect the Galaxy from the threat of invasion from the evil Emperor Zurg, sworn enemy of the Galactic Alliance!
Mr. Potato Head: Oh, really? I'm from Playskool.
Rex: And I'm from Mattel. Well, I'm not really from Mattel. I'm actually from a smaller company that was purchased in a leverage buyout.

Woody: All right. That's enough! Look, we're all very impressed with Andy's new toy.
Buzz: Toy?
Woody: T-O-Y. Toy!
Buzz: Excuse me. I think the word you're searching for is "Space Ranger."
Woody: The word I'm searching for; I can't say, because there's preschool toys present.

[Andy and his mom stop at the gas station]
Andy: Can I help pump the gas?
Andy's Mom: Sure, I'll even let you drive.
Andy: Really?
Andy's Mom: Yeah, when you're 16.
Andy: Yup, yup, yup, very funny, Mom.
Woody: [feeling miserable for what he'd done, lying on the seat of Andy's car] How am I gonna convince those guys it was an accident?
[Woody spots Buzz up at the sunroof, staring down at him]
Woody: Buzz!
[Buzz leaps down onto the seat right next to Woody, furious, covered in leaves and twigs]
Woody: Buzz! You're alive! This is great! I'm saved! Andy will find you here, he'll take us back to the room, and then you can tell everyone that this was all this all just a big mistake. Huh? [Buzz glares at him, speechless] Right? Buddy?
Buzz: I just want you to know that even though you tried to terminate me, revenge is not an idea we promote on my planet.
Woody: Oh, well, that's good.
Buzz: But we're not on my planet. Are we?
Woody: No.
[they start fighting]

Buzz: According to my navi-computer, the...
Woody: [quietly] Shut up! Just shut up, you idiot!
Buzz: Sheriff, this is no time to panic!
Woody: This is the perfect time to panic! I'm lost, Andy is gone, they're gonna move from their house in two days, and it's all your fault!
Buzz: My fault?! If you hadn't pushed me out of the window in the first place...
Woody: Oh, yeah?! Well, if you hadn't shown up in your stupid little cardboard spaceship and taken away everything that was important to me...
Buzz: Don't talk to me about importance! Because of you, the security of this entire universe is in jeopardy!
Woody: WHAT?!! What are you talkin' about?!
Buzz: Right now, poised at the edge of the galaxy, Emperor Zurg has been secretly building a weapon with the destructive capacity to annihilate an entire planet! I alone have information that reveals his weapon's only weakness. And you, my friend, are responsible for delaying my rendezvous with Star Command!
Woody: YOU... ARE... A... TOY!!! You aren't the real Buzz Lightyear! You're a-- Aw, you're an action figure! You are a child's plaything!
Buzz: You are a sad, strange little man, and you have my pity. Farewell. [exits]
Woody: Oh, yeah? Well, good riddance, ya loony! [sarcastically] "Rendezvous with Star Command."
Man #1: Hey, gas dude!
Man #2: You talking to me?

Alien #1: A stranger.
Alien #2: From the outside.
Aliens: Oooooooooooooooh.
Buzz: Greetings, I am Buzz Lightyear. I come in peace.
[all the Aliens gather around him]

[Sid at Pizza Planet ends up spotting Buzz in the Alien Claw Game, much to Woody's shock]
Sid: A Buzz Lightyear? No way. [the claw reaches down and collects Buzz successfully] Yes!
[Woody grabs Buzz's legs, trying to pull him out and stop him from being obtained]
Sid: [banging against the glass] Hey!
Aliens: [as Woody struggles to pull Buzz out of the claw machine] He has been chosen.
[the Alien toys all push Woody back through]
Woody: Stop it! What are you doing? Stop it! Stop it, you zealots!
Sid: [after having obtained both Buzz and Woody] All right, double prizes! [picks up them both] Let's go home and play.
[Sid chuckles as the camera zooms in on his shirt]

Sid: Hannah! Hey, Hannah!
Hannah: What?
Sid: Did I get my package in the mail?
Hannah: [shrugs] I don't know.
Sid: [demanding] What do you mean, you don't know?
Hannah: I don't know.
Sid: [referring to Hannah's doll] Oh, no, Hannah, look at Janey! She's sick!
Hannah: [as Sid snatches her] No she's not!
Sid: I'll have to perform one of my... operations!
Hannah: No!
Woody: Not Sid's room. Not there.
Hannah: No! [chasing Sid up to his room] Sid, gave her back! [as Sid closes the door] Sid! Sid!
[Sid throws his bag with Woody and Buzz onto his bed]
Sid: Oh, no!
Hannah: Mom!
Sid: We have a sick patient here, Nurse.
Hannah: [off-screen] Sid, gave her back!
Sid: Prepare the O.R., stat!
Hannah: [off-screen] Gave her back now! I'm telling!
Sid: Patient is prepped.
[gets out a plastic face mask]
Sid: No-one has ever attempted a double bypass brain transplant before. Now for the tricky part.
[Woody and Buzz watch in horror as Sid places Janey's head into a vice]
Sid: Pliers!
Buzz: I don't believe that man's ever been to medical school.
[he does the same to a toy pterodactyl's body]
Sid: [now with the Pterodactyl's head on Janey's body] Doctor, you've done it! [walking to the door with Hannah waiting outside] Hannah! Janey's all better now!
Hannah: [shrieks at the sight of what Sid did to Janey and runs downstairs] Mum, Mum!
Sid: She's lying! Whatever she says is not true!
[throws the toy onto the floor, as the pterodactyl's head falls off]

Sid: [torturing Woody with a magnifying glass] Where are your rebel friends now?
Sid's Mom: [offscreen, downstairs] Sid! Your Pop-Tarts are ready!
Sid: [running off] All right!

Sid: [in panic] The toys! The toys are alive! [whimpering] Nice toy!
[Hannah holds her new Sally doll out at Sid in fear, and chases him upstairs]
Hannah: What's wrong Sid? Don't you wanna play with Sally?

[the rocket Woody and Buzz are strapped to launches into the air, taking the two into the sky]
Woody: [screams] This is the part where we blow up!
Buzz: Not today! [activates his wings, breaking free from the rocket, and soars with Woody]
Woody: Hey, Buzz! You're flying!
Buzz: This isn't flying. This is falling with style!
Woody: [laughs] To infinity and beyond!

About Toy Story

  • I think the subject matter lends itself to the medium very much. When we started "Toy Story" back in 1991, computer graphics tended to make everything look like they were made of plastic, and so it was a natural subject matter. But with computer animation, we were also able to get the detail: the seams on Buzz Lightyear – the little screwheads holding the parts together. There was an embossed '© Disney' on his butt. All those things made it feel like the audience was looking at it going, "Yeah, I believe those are toys."
  • It was the hardest work I've ever done, purely as an actor.
This is how you make these movies, you stand there in front of a microphone and you scream your head off for the better part of six hours, that's my recollection of what it was.
