 I was a Penguin Zombie

  • Private: What was that for?
  • Kowalski: I just assumed he was going to pop out of no- Look behind you!
  • Private, Rico: Aaaah!
  • Kowalski: And once again I appear to be mistaken. Hmm. Guess it just goes to show you can never tell...

  • Private: He's eating Rico's brain!
  • Kowalski: Rico's? I mean, have you even looked at this big, juicy, jumbo genius tenderloin? That's grade-A science brain, baby!
  • Skipper: Stop! Stop!

  • Private: It's okay, Mort. We're not going to hurt you.

Private: Indeed I am! I think...
Kowalski: Well, if you are thinking what I think you're thinking, I think it could be risky!

  • Barry: (calming down) Hey. You know what? I never have been hugged.
  • (Barry returns the gesture)
  • Barry: Maybe this is just what I needed. (stops giving affection) Or maybe I'm just a jerk who enjoys bullying other animals.
  • Private: Well in that case, I can just squeeze you (tightens his grip on Barry) until you pop like a grape.
  • Barry: No no, go with the hug! Hug's good! (Private loosens his grip) Actually, I'm liking the hug.

Mask of the Raccoon

Truth Ache

  • (after Private used truth serum in a hot sauce bottle, Kowalski does an example)

  • Skipper: (upset) My whole a lie!!

Gator Watch

  • Private: Just don't look down. You'll be fine.
  • Roger: Don't look down. Don't look down. Don't look-
  • (He looks down, gets dizzy, and falls off the building)
  • Roger: Doooooooooooown!!
  • Private: (in fear) Roger!!
  • (A splash is heard below)
  • Kowalski: Ooh. Lucky for him, there was a swimming pool down there.
  • (Screaming is soon heard later)
  • Private: (worriedly) A rather public pool...

A Visit From Uncle Nigel

  • Red: Is this how you come to fight? With a toy?

  • Red: (Looks at Private) What do you mean by- (Private pushes on the Lunacorn, causing its horn to light up, directly in Red's eye)

  • Private: YOU TAKE THAT BACK! Princess self-respecta is the noble leader of all the lunacorns and together they…I wasn’t supposed to say things

Penguins of Madagascar (movie)

[After the ray Private stole from Dave accidentally turned a random penguin back to normal]
Kowalski: The ray! It works! It WORKS!
Skipper: Private! Are you okay?
Private: Yes!
[Skipper, Rico and Kowalski gasp in surprise and notice that Private has sprouted a hand out of his buttocks.]
Kowalski: Whoa-oh! Butt-hand! There’s a hand attached to his butt. That was not... that was not there before.
Skipper: Get out of there. That’s an order!
Private: [salutes] Permission to defy order.
Skipper: Permission denied!
Private: Then I deny your denial.
Skipper: It’s too risky, Private. It already made you sprout a butt-hand!
Private: I know it has to be me this time. [places his butt-hand on the glass] And I think you know it, too.
'[Concerned about Private’s sacrifice, Skipper places his flipper on the same place where Private placed his butt-hand. They exchange smiles before Private reattaches himself to the ray using his butt-hand.]

'PrivateI'm the secret weapon!
