Kuzco choosing a bride in Emperor's New Groove

At the center of the story is Kuzco’s transformation from an arrogant and spoiled young man into a mindful ruler. Obviously, one of his introductory scenes shows just how terrible his attitude is for those around him.

In a scene where he must choose a bride for himself, Kuzco goes through the young women standing in a line and comments on their appearance. It’s a funny joke that has a lot of truth in it while also illustrating perfectly what kind of person Kuzco is.

9“Bless You For Coming Out In Public.”

Mata taking an order in Emperor's New Groove

At one point, in order to hide from Yzma and Kronk, llama Kuzco has to dress as a lady and pretend to be Patcha’s date at the local restaurant they visit. What ensues is one of the best sequences in the entire movie.

Pacha tells the waitress that they are on their honeymoon to which the waitress replies: “Bless you for coming out in public.” It’s a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment, but it’s actually hilarious and refers to the fact that the waitress realized Kuzco is not really a woman and instead thought he is a man dressed in drag.

8“Don’t Tell Me: We’re About To Go Over A Huge Waterfall.”

Kuzco and Pacha tangled in Emperor's New Groove

As a result of their constant fighting, llama Kuzco and Patcha end up entangled and tied to a tree branch floating down a river. Pacha lets out a worried “uh-oh” to which Kuzco starts asking him about a huge waterfall ahead with sharp rocks at the bottom.

It’s not the funniest back-and-forth they have, but it’s one of those short moments that shows just how much Kuzco and Pacha actually understand each other.

7“Squeaky, Squeaks, Squeaker, Squeaking.”

Kronk talking to a squirrel in Emperor's New Groove

Though most of the memorable quotes from the movie belong to the main characters, some side characters also get their time to shine.

For instance, Kronk is absolutely adorable as he talks to the squirrel he and Yzma meet as they are pursuing Kuzco and Pacha. The squirrel tells Kronk the whereabouts of “the talking llama” but clearly shows its distrust of Yzma humiliating her by making her move away as the squirrel talks to Kronk.

6“Boom, Baby!”

Kuzco coming into the room in Emperor's New Groove

A discussion about this film’s best lines wouldn’t be complete without one of Kuzco’s most iconic catchphrases. After the opening song about Kuzco, he enters a room by kicking the door with his leg and shouting, “Boom, baby!”

It doesn’t look like he addresses anyone with the phrase, but it’s a quote that sticks out because it also refers to his personality that seeks attention.

5“You Really Should Have Thought Of That Before You Became Peasants!”

Kuzco looking at Yzma next to the throne in Emperor's New Groove

Before being fired, Yzma serves as an adviser to Kuzco, but she also secretly enjoys sitting on the throne and doing some of Kuzco’s tasks herself. Yet, she remains quite ignorant— similarly to the way Kuzco is self-centered.

When a peasant tells Yzma that his family doesn’t have any food, she responds by saying that it is no concern of hers whether they have food. Moreover, they should have thought about it before becoming peasants. That has the same feel as Marie Antoinette’s famous (alleged) quote, “Let them eat cake!”

4“No Touchy.”

Kuzco pointing at something in Emperor's New Groove

Another one of Kuzco’s notorious quotes, this one reflects his personality even more. As a kid, Kuzco came from a wealthy family and was cared for in every way possible. If he wanted a doll, he got a dozen dolls. Naturally, he grew up to be a person who corresponded to such an upbringing.

That’s why this phrase (which refers to Kuzco not wanting to be touched) makes perfect sense. Luckily, by the end of the movie he turns into a completely different person.

3“A Llama? He’s Supposed To Be Dead!”

One of the things that made Yzma so iconic is that she was voiced by none other than Eartha Kitt, who many people best know as one of the women who portrayed Catwoman in the 1960s Batman TV series. Her voice made Yzma sound like no other animated character ever did.

That’s why so many viewers can literally hear her voice when reading the quote. It’s something Yzma exclaims after attempting to poison and kill Kuzco. Instead, he turns into a llama.

2“Wrong Lever!”

Yzma and Kronk on their way to the secret lab in Emperor's New Groove

Yzma had many interesting lines in the movie, but the one that stays with many fans is from a scene where she and Kronk are about to get into the secret lab.

As they stand near the entrance, Yzma says, “Pull the lever, Kronk!” Kronk does so, a door opens under Yzma, and she falls into a pit screaming that it was the wrong lever. A moment after, she returns with a crocodile biting her dress. She slaps the crocodile and grumbles: “Why do we even have that lever?”

1“Oh, Right. The Poison. The Poison For Kuzco, The Poison Chosen Especially To Kill Kuzco, Kuzco’s Poison. That Poison?”

Yzma and Kronk talking in Emperor's New Groove

Kronk is not only notorious for his squirrel language skills, but also for his simple wording when he speaks. He is arguably not the brightest person out there, but he is still adorable because of the enthusiasm with which he approaches pretty much anything.

So, when Yzma asks him about the poison for Kuzco, Kronk can’t help but mumble about it, excited to be participating even if it means killing his ruler.
