Little Rascals Quotes

Monday, April 18 by Annmicha Blugh

"The Little Rascals" quotes are a cute compilation of humorous, childish statements, similar to "Kids Say the Darndest Things." Filled with innocence and witty wisdom, these quotations inform adults of observations through the mind and eyes of a child. "The Little Rascals" are a group of pint-sized members belonging to a club called the "He-Man Women Haters Club" and the film describes their ins-and-outs in their dealings with adults, girls and bullies. Stymie, Alfalfa, Uh-huh, Buckwheat, Porky and Darla are some of the child stars whose words would make you wonder if they are children. 

  1. Stymie: "You only meet your once in a lifetime friends… once in a lifetime." This wise and pithy observation is uttered by Stymie. The important people in your life, especially in the context of childhood friends, are rare and hard-to-find. On this realization, he treasures his lifelong friends.
  2. Mr. Welling (loan officer): "Six kids, hard-working father, honest and trustworthy. Loan… denied!" This decision is a painful reminder of the real-life experience of many people and the apparent flippancy in attitude of financial institutions toward the plight of the average man or woman. The irony is that those in need of loans fail to be considered.
  3. Stymie: "You know what they say: Wood don't grow on trees." This "Little Rascals" saying is a proverbial misquote from Stymie who misunderstood the source of wood. He expresses this after the gang tries to buy wood and recognize that they have insufficient funds. 
  4. Buckwheat: "Hey, Uh-Huh, does it stink in there?" Uh-Huh: "Uh-Huh!" Uh-huh has repeatedly said, "Uh-huh," to every question posed to him until the ending when he surprises everyone with his articulate, verbal proficiency: "Actually, I've always had a rather extensive vocabulary, not to mention a phenomenal grasp of grammar and a superlative command of syntax. I simply chose not to employ them." These two lines are Uh-huh's best lines in the "Little Rascals."
  5. Waldo: "We just moved into town. My father bought the oil refinery." Darla: "That explains why you're so refined!"  lfalfa: "Yeah, and so oily!" This quote is one of the best and humorous "Little Rascals" observation and rebuttal among kids who try to impress and humor one another. In a childish love triangle, both boys fight for the girl's attention. 
  6. Alfalfa: "The two of us will be singing a duet. Together." Waldo: "How redundant." Alfalfa: "Thank you." This child banter is a "Little Rascals" peek into a linguistic misstep by Alfalfa and identified by Waldo. Darla selects a pleasing quality about the oil refinery, whereas Alfalfa, Waldo's competitor, chooses to snub  him by negative commentary. 
  7. Buckwheat: "We're going to the race. We're gonna win first place and you have an ugly face!" This song is a best "Little Rascals" rhyme sung by Buckwheat. This chant challenges the little rascals' competitors at the car race which climaxes the movie. 
  8. Stymie: "Girls are like a bad song. Once they get stuck in your head, you can't get them out again." Stymie utters a best "Little Rascals" statement as the boys come to some conclusions about girls. He also reveals Alfalfa's childish obsession over Darla.  
  9. B uckwheat: "Hey, look! It's my mom!" Porky: "Whoopie!" (sarcastic) (Whoopi Goldberg plays Buckwheat's mom, excellent wordplay). Also, Alfalfa in love: "Oh Darla, we're two hearts with one beat, we're two souls/soles, but one…shoe." These quotations are two best "Little Rascals" puns in which Alfalfa stuck for words and grasping at straws to complete a flattering line to awe his love, manages to mix up some meanings. 
  10. Spanky (Judge of club): "How do you plead?" Alfalfa: "Like this (bowed on knees)… Please, O Please have mercy, please!" Buckwheat: "Hmm, pretty good pleading." A hilarious, infantile court proceeding, these best "Little Rascals" lines plays on idea of pleading in a court of law. Alfalfa breaks the mannish law by falling in love with a girl and as a consequence faces prosecution. The jury comes to a quick verdict after seeing his sincere sorrow.
