A childhood favourite. I love the soup-bubble in the office scene!

The last decent herbie flick before they lost their charm if you ask me, the look and effects are just as cute and charming as the original and the fact its still set in SF makes it feel like a sequel to the first despite a different cast.

Really great madcap comedy-adventure of Herbie to protect her leading lady Helen Hayes by saving her beloved Victorian firehouse home from the wrecking ball of greedy real estate Keenan Wynn. Wynn is so hilarious as Disney's most lovable villian.

    3. Willoughby Whitfield: Mrs. Steinmeintz!

    1. Alonzo Hawk: (He's in Rome; he sees the Coliseum) What a location.
    2. Taxi Driver: Ah, see, the mighty Coliseum. The Glory of Rome. Doesn't stir your imagination?
    3. Alonzo Hawk: You bet it does, baby. Do you realize what a shopping center we can put up there? Plenty of parking, too.
    – Submitted by Alyssa B (3 months ago)
    1. Alonzo Hawk: (being stopped by a policeman in traffic) The traffic commissioner shall hear of this!
    2. Traffic Commissioner: I *am* the commissioner.
    3. Alonzo Hawk: Then what are you doing in that monkey suit? A traffic commissioner would dress in dignified clothes.
    4. Traffic Commissioner: This happen to be my dress uniform. I was on my way to the ceremony for I Am A Policeman Day.

    1. Secretary: I'm sorry, Mr. Hawk. I called the motel but they said that your nephew checked out.
    2. Alonzo Hawk: (angrily) What do you mean he's checked out? When? Where? Who told him that he could check out? How dare that he disappear when he knows that I'm worried sick? I'll tear his chicken-livered gizzard to pieces! I'll stomp him silly! I'll take this letter knife, and I'll stab that kid right in his ungrateful breastbone! You know me Millicent, normally I'm a kindly, fun-loving fellow! But when I get crossed...
    3. Alonzo Hawk: (weakly, slumping down at the desk)
    4. Alonzo Hawk: I go bananas.
    – Submitted by Alyssa B (3 months ago)
    1. Willoughby Whitfield: Please, Miss Harris, I can't believe that Uncle Alonzo would do things like that.
    2. Nicole: Wait a minute! Uncle? He's your uncle?
    3. Willoughby Whitfield: Yes. That's what I've been trying to tell...
    4. Nicole: You rotten spy!
    5. Nicole: (takes a lobster from the waiter's tray and smacks Willoughby, knocking him over the railing and into the water)
    – Submitted by Alyssa B (3 months ago)
    1. Mrs. Steinmetz: Oh, Nicole, I want you to meet a gentleman from Mr. Hawk.
