The Cat in the Hat (2003) Poster

Dakota Fanning: Sally



  • The Cat : [showing his car]  Here she is, the Super Luxurious Omnidirectional Whatchamajigger, or S-L-O-W for short.

    Sally : S-L-O-W?

    The Cat : Yeah, S.L.O.W. It's better than the last thing we had: Super Hydraulic Instantaneous Transporter.

    Conrad : Oh, you mean...

    The Cat : No! Quick! To the S.L.O.W.!

  • Sally : [jumping on the couch]  Like being in the circus!

    The Cat : Yeah, but without those tortured animals or drunken clowns that have hepatitis.

  • The Fish : Someone else should drive!

    The Cat : Alright, you win. Concrete, you drive.

    [gives Conrad the wheel] 

    Conrad : Are you serious?

    The Cat : I don't know. A little voice inside of me is saying, "This is a bad idea." But I can barely hear that little voice, because an even louder little voice is screaming, "Let the twelve-year-old drive!" Now punch it.

    Conrad : This is awesome!

    Sally : I want to drive.

    The Cat : I think that's a great idea.

    [gives Sally another wheel] 

    Conrad : Wait, two people can't drive at the same time.

    The Cat : You're right. We should all drive.

    [gets his own wheel] 

  • [Sally, Conrad and Mrs. Kwan are watching TV. It shows a scene of Taiwanese Parliament Members fighting] 

    Conrad , Sally : Taiwanese Parliament.

    Mrs. Kwan : You tell them, Kwi-Chang. No more big government! Rip his heart out!

  • Sally : Where did you come from?

    The Cat : Hmm, How do I put this... When a mommy cat and a daddy cat love each other very much, they decide that...

    Conrad : Oh, no, no, no, no, no. Where did you *come* from?

    The Cat : My place, what do you think?

  • The Cat : [sinister voice]  There is a third option!

    [Vaudeville keyboard music] 

    Sally : There is?

    The Cat : Yes. It involves... murder!

    [More vaudeville keyboard music] 

    Conrad : That's your option?

    The Cat : [normal voice]  No. You guys both had options. I just wanted to have one too.

    The Cat : [back to sinister]  Or did I?

    [More vaudeville keyboard music] 

    Sally : Cat, you're not helping!

  • The Fish : Stop this right now!

    Conrad : Who said that?

    The Fish : Me! Remember, the fish? Came home in a baggy, loved me for two weeks, and then *nothing*!

    Sally : The fish is talking.

    The Cat : Well, sure, he can talk. But is he saying anything? No, not really.

  • Sally : Who are you?

    The Cat : Who, Me? Why I'm The Cat in the Hat, there's no doubt about that. I'm a super fundiferous feline, who's here to make sure that you're..."meline"..."key lime"..."turpentine". I got nothing! I'm not so good with the rhyming, not really, no. Look, I'm a cat that can talk that should be enough for you people!

  • Conrad : So, what do we do?

    The Cat : Well, there are two treatments I'd recommend. One is a series of painful shots injected into your abdomen and kneecaps, and the other involves a musical number! Me me me me-ow!

    Sally : How many shots?

  • Sally : Stop! That's...

    Sally , Conrad : Mom's dress!

    The Cat : This filthy thing?

    Sally : She was gonna wear that tonight and you ruined it.

    The Cat : Honey, it was ruined when she bought it.

    [snaps, snaps] 

    The Cat : Mmm-mmm-hmm yeah.

    [snaps, snaps] 

    The Cat : Mmm-hmm.

  • Mom : Well, if you're both staying, remember the rules; Conrad, no playing ball in the house, no fighting, no answering the phone: "City Morgue".

    Sally : Mommy, can't I have some rules?

    Mom : No chewing tobacco.

  • Lawrence Quinn : Anything for my little Princess.

    Sally : Oh, I don't wanna be a princess, in a constitutional monarchy, parliament has all the real power.

  • Sally : You need to clean this mess up, pronto. We have a contract.

    The Cat : Alright, I'll try.

    Sally : [grabs the Cat in the Hat by his bowtie]  You don't try, you do!
