- All the dreams you've ever had and not just the good ones
- ...they didn't make history, they stole it!
- Supreme Being: Dead? No excuse for laying off work.
Evil: If I were creating the world I wouldn't mess about with butterflies and daffodils. I would have started with lasers, eight o'clock, Day One! [zaps one of his minions accidentally, minion screams] Evil: Sorry.
Randall: We made trees and shrubs. We helped make all this. Kevin: Whew! That's not bad. Randall: Yeah. But did we get a thimble full of credit for it? No! All we got was the sack. Just for creating the Pink Bunkadoo. Kevin: Pink Bunkadoo? Randall: Yeah. Beautiful trees that was. Og designed it. 600 feet high, bright red, and smelled terrible.
Strutter: [slaps Kevin] Get down, you nearly got us caught! Randall: You silly fool, you could've ruined everything. Kevin: Do you know where we are? Randall: Shut up. Of course I do. 1796, Battle of Castiglione, see? Strutter: [taps him] You sure we're not in somebody's bedroom? Randall: Look, [grabs Strutter] Randall: do you want to be leader of this gang? Strutter: No, we agreed: No leader! Randall: Right. So shut up and do as I say. [Strutter nods]
Randall: Well, this map, Kevin, used to belong to the Supreme Being. Kevin: You mean you stole it? Randall: No, no. Well, sort of.
- Young Craig Warnock, who played Kevin, won the role after a wide search for the right child actor. An agent had seen Warnock's brother and sent him to an audition. That Craig went with him was merely a coincidence. Director Terry Gilliam, however, took more interest in Craig than his sibling, noting that the young man seemed rather intelligent yet aloof and quiet, as opposed to the stereotypical "cute" little boy.
Director Trademark: [Terry Gilliam] [burst] horse and rider from closet
Director Trademark: [Terry Gilliam] [bookends] begins and ends with the map.
Director Trademark: [Terry Gilliam] [cages] This film uses cages identical to the cage Jill is imprisoned in, in Giliam's film Brazil (1985).
The suit worn by Ralph Richardson is his own.
