Aladdin (1992)

Jafar: [from inside the lamp] Get your blasted beak out of my face!
Iago: Oh, shut up, you moron!
Jafar: Don't tell me to shut up!

Sultan: Jafar, you vile betrayer!
Iago: That's Sultan Vile Betrayer to you!

[the Sultan notices that Jasmine is running out of the room, and runs after her]
Jafar: [scowls in their direction] If only I had gotten that lamp!
Iago: [mocking Jasmine] "I will have the power to get rid of you." Dahhh! To think we gotta keep kissing up to that chump, and his chump daughter, for the rest of our lives.
Jafar: No, Iago. Only until she finds a chump husband. Then she'll have us banished. Or beheaded.
Jafar, Iago: Ew.
Iago: Oh, wait a minute, wait a minute! Jafar, what if you were the chump husband?
Jafar: What?
Iago: Okay, okay. You marry the princess, all right? And and, uh, you. Then you become the sultan!
Jafar: Marry the shrew. I become sultan. The idea has merit.
Iago: Yes, merit. Yes! And then, we drop papa-in-law and the little woman off a cliff.

Iago: "Yah. Ker-splat!"
Jafar: [laughs] I love the way your foul little mind works!

Jafar: Calm yourself, Iago.
Iago: And then I'd grab him around the head. Whack, whack!
Jafar: Soon I will be sultan, not that addlepated twit.
Iago: And then I stuff the crackers down his throat. Ha ha.

Iago: [taking Genie's lamp] Boy, Jafar's gonna be happy to see you.
Jafar: [he switches to Jafar's voice] Excellent work, Iago.

Jafar: [again] No, really. On a scale of one to ten, you are an eleven.
Iago: Oh, Jafar, you're too kind. I'm embarrassed. I'm blushing.

Jafar: Without the Genie, boy, you're nothing.
Aladdin: The Genie... The Genie! The Genie has more power than you'll ever have!
Jafar: What?
Aladdin: He gave you your power. He can take it away.
Genie: [smiling uncomfortably] Al, what're you doing? Why are you bringing me into this?
Aladdin: Face it, Jafar. You're still just second best!
Jafar: [slightly shocked] You're right. His power does exceed my own. But not for long.

[when Gazeem tries to steal the lamp from the Cave of Wonders, the latter swallows him whole]
Iago: I can't believe it! I just don't believe it! We're never gonna get ahold of that stupid lamp! Just forget it! Look at this. Look at this. I'm so ticked off that I'm molting.
Jafar: Patience, Iago, patience. Gazeem was obviously less than worthy.
Iago: Oh, there's a big surprise! That's an incredib... I think I'm gonna have a heart attack and die from that surprise! What are we gonna do? We got a big problem here, a big... Mmph!
[Jafar grabs Iago's beak to shut him up]
Jafar: Yes. Only one may enter. I must find this one, this... diamond in the rough.

Iago: Oh, nice shot, Jaf...

Aladdin: You wanted to be a genie? You got it!
[cufflinks form on Jafar's wrists]
Jafar: What?
Aladdin: And everything that goes with it.

[zaps Ali back to Aladdin as he says it]
Iago: [mockingly] Or should we say Aladdin?
Princess Jasmine: [shocked gasp] Ali?
Aladdin: Jasmine, I tried to tell you. I just.
Jafar: [still singing] So Ali turns out to be merely Aladdin.
Jafar: Just a con, need I go on? Take it from me, his personality flaws, give me adequate cause,
[sends Aladdin and Abu in a pillar, Carpet flies in after them]
Jafar: to send him packing on a one way trip so his prospects take a terminal dip, his assets frozen, the venue chosen, is the ends of the earth.
Jafar: [sends the pillar in the air]
Jafar: Whoopee! So long!
Iago: Goodbye. See ya.
Jafar: [sings] Ex-Prince Ali!
[laughs maniacally]
