Doctor Dolittle (1998) Poster

Ossie Davis: Archer Dolittle



  • Archer Dolittle : [to Lisa and Maya, the latter of whom has resolved to give up her experiments and be more like John]  ... John's always been able to talk with animals. I used to think it was a handicap, but it's not; it's a gift. Sometimes, daddies are the ones who need to change.

  • Maya Dolittle : Grandpa, did Daddy learn how to be bossy from you?

    Archer Dolittle : He certainly didn't learn it from his mother, God rest her soul.

    [John's Range-Rover drives up, with Rodney's cage strapped to the roof] 

    Maya Dolittle : Daddy, what's Rodney doing on the roof?

    Dr. John Dolittle : I thought the fresh air would do him good.

    Rodney : Lunatic! Crazy man! Psycho!

    Dr. John Dolittle : [looks at Rodney murderously]  ... Daddy, we still got those BB guns I used to play with when I was little?

  • Lisa Dolittle : [while John is operating on the tiger]  He still thinks he can talk to animals.

    Archer Dolittle : He can Lisa. He *can* talk to animals. It started when he was young. I thought it was a handicap. But it's a gift Lisa

  • 5-Year-Old John Dolittle : She was my best friend.

    Archer Dolittle : You'll make some real friends now.

    Lucky : [narrating]  From that day on, John Dolittle never spoke to animals again.

    Archer Dolittle : Someday, you're gonna thank me for this.

    Lucky : [narrating]  And after a while, all he could remember was that deep down inside, there was something missing.
