Mama, you're the motor in my fan. You're the filament in my lightbulb. You're the paint in my picture. You're the key to my mind. You're the heating element in my pickle.
Can really hot water make a fire? If you pour it on wood?
Suzuki (after having employed the old "I've got your nose" trick): Hey, I've got your nose!
Julian: You don't have my nose. I have my own private nose and each time I get a new, improved model when you take it.
Juju (playing with legos): We're just waiting for a concept to come up...I know! This is a short-route, one-person dizzer!
I do not like what is going on with this world. Some things I like, but a lot I do not. (With a disgusted tone): In my school, almost every class has a projector!
I don't like shrimps to eat, but I like shrimps the animals. They're really cute.
Can we get a spring box for my mattress and put it next to your bed so we can all sleep together? I want to be with you as much as possible. Being together is what life's about.
Janusz: Julian, I thought you said you were dying of hunger and now you're not eating and playing with that puppet and rubber band.
Julian: I guess I was dying for something to be interesting.
Julian: I like to quietly practice other people's voices.
Suzuki: Maybe you'd like to be an actor.
Julian: No, I want to be a dancer.
Thank you for getting me a napkin, Baba. You're the best...You're welcome for saying you're the best.
A leaf was jumping down the street. It was so funny!
(On a fire road hike) Tracks are an offering to God from trucks.
I don't think I'd be a good harmonica player because after I play for some time, my breath feels weird.
Mama, I'm going to ask you something and I want you to guess in a special way--guess more slowly, so you don't just say, "I give up."
Suzuki: A speech therapist is going to come to your class.
Julian: But I don't want to lose my accent.
