Trying to think of the best "Finding Nemo" quotes is not a hard job. It's one of a handful of movies that seems to have only gotten more popular over time. Kids and adults alike have raved about the movie ever since it came out, and everyone seems to have their own favorite quotes. Here are ten of the most commonly referenced favorites of "Finding Nemo" fans.
Dory: "This is the ocean, silly. We're not the only two in here." While looking for Nemo with Marlin, Marlin keeps going on about the dangers of the ocean, with Dory reminding him that they're not alone.
Dory [while sleeping]: "Hey, careful with that hammer…" Dory makes a name for herself throughout the movie by saying strange things. She says this while fast asleep, murmering through snores.
Gurgle: "Oh, the human mouth is a disgusting place" The tank gang is sitting in the dentist office fish tank, watching the dentist go to work on a patient.
The Seagulls [repeated]: "Mine!" When the characters make their way back to the ocean, they are confronted with the mindless droning of a flock of Seagulls.
Chum [sarscastic]: "Dolphins, yeah! They think they're so cute. 'Oh look at me, I'm a flippy little dolphin. Let me flip for you. Ain't I something?'" After saying the "fish are not food" pledge with the other sharks, Chum breaks in with a little tirade about dolphins and how he doesn't care about them.
Marlin: "That's actually a misconception. Clownfish are no funnier than any other fish." While taking Nemo out to his first day of school, a parent asks Marlin to tell him a joke because he's a clownfish. Marlin tries, but fails miserably.
Crush: "'Cause we were like 'woooaaah', and I was like 'woooaaah', and you were like 'woooaaah'…" Crush tells Marlin how impressed he was after seeing him swim through the jellies with Dory.
Bruce [reciting pledge]: "I am a nice shark, not a mindless eating machine. In I am to change this image, I must first change myself. Fish are friends, not food." Bruce is one of a small group of sharks working hard to fight his "addiction" to fish.
Marlin [from inside the whale]: "I have to get out of here! I have to find my son! I have to tell him how old sea turtles are!" In the beginning of the movie, Nemo asks Marlin how old sea turtles are. While trapped in the whale, he uses that memory to keep himself occupied with escape.
Dory: "I shall call him Squishy and he shall be mine and he shall be my Squishy. Come on, Squishy Come on, little Squishy." [Squishy stings her] "Ow! Bad Squishy. Bad Squishy." Before having to navigate through tons of jellyfish with Marlin, Dory finds a little jellyfish that she names Squishy who then shocks her.
