- Mr. Centipede is pretty much first-class hilarious in the film, but this troper just smirks at how, when being tortured by underwater skeletons, he actually tries to banter with them:
Mr. Centipede: Listen, fellas, I've got a long history of back problems, and I don't need it to get any longer!
- This little gem:
Centipede: I've sailed all the five seas! From the sun-drenched reefs of Bora Bora to the icy shores of Tripoli! Commodore Centipede, they used to call me!
Grasshopper: There are seven seas. And Tripoli is in the subtropics, "Commodore".
Centipede: Trim the sails!
Ladybug: There are no sails.
Centipede: Stoke the engines!
Earthworm: There are no engines.
Centipede: I can't work with this miserable crew!
- During the introduction of the bugs:
James: ... and the Glow-worm!
Glow-worm [facing the wrong way]: God bless the colonies!
