Tramp Quotes from Lady and the Tramp

Tramp is a confident and resourceful dog who knows what it takes to survive on the streets. Here are some of his best quips!

  1. Jock: Who are you to barge in?
    Tramp: The voice of experience buster.
  2. Tramp: Boy just wait until Junior gets here. You get the urge for a nice comfortable scratch and “put that dog out! He’ll get fleas all over the baby!”. You start barking at some strange mutt (barks). “Stop that racket! You’ll wake the baby!”. And then, then they hit you in the room and board department. Oh, remember those nice, juicy cuts of beef? Forget ’em. Leftover baby food. And that nice, warm bed by the fire? A leaky dog house.
  3. Tramp: Well, snob hill!
  4. Tramp: When the baby moves in, the dog moves out.
  5. Tramp: It kind of feels like home.
  6. Tramp: (looking at the chickens) Just look at those fat, lazy biddies. Why, they should’ve been up hours ago.

  10. Tramp: You know there’s a little bit of bird dog in all of us, eh pidge?
  11. Tramp: Tony’s, of course! The very place for a very special occasion. No, this way pidge, I have my own private entrance.
  12. Tramp: What you need is a log puller. I SAID A LOG PULLER!
    Beaver: I ain’t deaf, sonny. There’s no need to… Did you say log puller?
    Tramp: Haha, and by lucky coincidence, you see before you, modeled by the lovely little lady, the new, improved, patented, handy-dandy, never-fail little giant log puller. The busy beaver’s friend!
    Beaver: You don’t say!
    Tramp: Guaranteed not to wear, tear, rip or ravel. Turn around, sister, and show the customer the merchandise. And it cuts log-hauling time sixty-six percent!
    Beaver: Sixty-six percent, eh? Figure that! Well, how’s it work?
  13. Tramp: I had a home and a family. I had it all. They loved me and I loved them. And then, one day, it all changed. I waited in that spot all day and all night.

Fun Fact: Lady doesn’t know the names of her owners, so she calls them what they call each other: Darling and Jim Dear. Their names are actually Elizabeth and James Brown.

Lady and the Tramp shows us how true love can overcome differences and backgrounds. Lady and the Tramp are from very different environments and have opposite personalities; Lady is a spoilt dog from a wealthy home, while Tramp is a ‘rough around the edges’ street dog. Despite their differences, they teach each other important lessons; Lady shows Tramp the importance of family, and Tramp teaches Lady to be a bit more adventurous and that there’s a life beyond the garden fence.

Why does Tramp call Lady Pidge?
