    • QUOTES (9)

      • Play that funky music imp-boy!

      • Genie: Ned the Destroyer! He's destroying!

      • Nefir: All play and no work makes Nefir a poor imp!

      • Nefir: What do we have here? Visitors...and a genie!
        Genie: (as a human) HEY! I am not a genie! I'm a human being!
        (Nefir pokes Genie. He turns back into a genie)
        WOW! I am a genie! This is gonna be a suprise to mom and pop!

      • Iago: I was tryin' to be practical. We got a genie with phenominal, cosmic powers!
        Genie: (with x-ray glasses on) Look at my bones...
        Iago: Well semi-phenominal, nearly-cosmic powers.
        (Aladdin and Abu stare at Iago)
        Okay! I was cheatin'!

      • Getzistan Sultan: Smile everyone! Smile! Everyone smiles in Getzistan! Its the jolly-est place on Earth!
        Iago: It's ground zero is what it is!

      • (Aladdin is waiting for Genie in the middle of the desert)
        Aladdin: Where is he?
        (mailbox appears out of nowhere)
        (Aladdin opens it and pulls out a letter, then reads it)
        Aladdin: Hello, Aladdin. I have captured your Genie and I am forcing him to destroy the town. You have no hope in stoping me. PS, that'll be 200 dollars for the mailbox?! (not reading) ARGH!

      • Nefir: Okay, here's your bill. Two-hundred dollars to keep you trapped. Five-thousand dollars for the wrestle.
        Genie: WHAT?!
        Nefir: And ten-thousand dollars for the dancing shoes.
        Genie: What dancing (looks down)--Oh.

      • Ned: I don't want to destroy the town, its these shoes. I woke up one morning with them on, and whenever I hear music, I just have to dance! And that's why I keep destroying the town.
        Genie: But who would want the town destroyed every single night?
        Nefir: That would be me!

    • NOTES (6)

    • ALLUSIONS (5)

      • The song the rhino (and later Genie) dance to is Dance of the Hours, which was also used in Fantasia. In fact, the dancing rhino may be a reference to the dancing hippos in that segment of the movie.

      • Genie: Imps, why did it have to be imps?

        This may be a reference to the 1980 film Raiders of the Lost Ark, when Indiana Jones says, "Snakes, why did it have to be snakes?"

      • Ned: Play that funky music imp-boy.

        This is an obvious play on the song Play That Funky Music by Wild Cherry, in which the artist says in the chorus, "Play that funky music, white boy."

      • Nefir dives into his gold

        This may be a play on the late-80's/ early 90's cartoon Ducktales, in which the main character "Scrooge McDuck" always dove into his gold that was in his money bin.

      • The title is a play on the saying, "Never say never!"
