The 29 Top Genie Quotes from Disney’s Aladdin

The original animated version of Aladdin was released in 1992. Its popularity rose quickly thanks in part to the music of Alan Menkin (A Whole New World, Friend Like Me, Prince Ali). Of course, Robin Williams and his depiction of the genie is what really stole the show!

Genie is perhaps one of the most loved characters of all the Disney movies. He lives in a magical lamp…well…lets have the merchant explain:

“Do not be fooled by its commonplace appearance. Like so many things, it is not what is outside, but what is inside that counts. This is no ordinary lamp! It once changed the course of a young man’s life; a young man who, like this lamp, was more than what he seemed: a diamond in the rough. Perhaps you would like to hear the tale? It begins on a dark night, where a dark man waits… with a dark purpose.”

Merchant from Aladdin

Aladdin is the story of Aladdin, the commonplace street rat who finds this lamp and the adventure begins. Aladdin must fight off the antagonist Jafar and try to win the heart of Princess Jasmine. All the while. Aladdin and Genie form a bond that can’t seem to be broken.

Here are some of the best quotes from Genie from the 1992 animated version.

Phenomenal cosmic powers, itty bitty living space quote from Genie in Aladdin

Aladdin: Genie, I need help!
Genie: [as Jack Nicholson] All right, Sparky, here’s the deal. If you wanna court the little lady, you gotta be a straight shooter. Do ya got it?
Aladdin: What?
Genie: Tell her the truth!

But, oh, to be free! Not to have to go “Poof! What do you need?”, “Poof! What do you need?”, “Poof! What do you need?” To be my own master. Such a thing would be greater than all the magic and all the treasures in all the world! But what am I talking about? Let’s get real here, it’s not gonna happen. Genie, wake up and smell the hummus.

Aladdin: Provisos? You mean limitations? On wishes? Huh. Some all powerful Genie. Can’t even bring people back from the dead. I don’t know, Abu. He probably can’t even get us out of this cave. Looks like we’re gonna have to find a way outta here.
Genie: Excuse me? Are you looking at me? Did you rub my lamp? Did you wake me up? Did you bring me here? And all of a sudden you’re walking out on me? I don’t think so. Not right now! YOU’RE GETTIN’ YOUR WISHES, SO SIDDOWN!

Genie: [as a female flight attendant] Thank you for choosing Magic Carpet for all your travel needs. Don’t stand until the rug has come to a complete stop. Thank you. Goodbye now. Goodbye. Goodbye. Thank you. Goodbye.Genie: [back to normal] Well, how about that, Mr. Doubting Mustafa?
Aladdin: Oh, you sure showed me. Now, about my three wishes.
Genie: Dost mine ears deceive me? Three? You are down by one, boy!
Aladdin: Ah, no, I never actually wished to get out of the cave, huh. You did that on your own.
Genie: Oh, I feel sheepish. All right, you ba-a-a-ad boy. But no more freebies.

Say, you’re a lot smaller than my last master. Either that, or I’m getting bigger. Look at me from the side. Do I look different to you?

Yo, Rug man! Haven’t seen you in a few millennia. Give me some tassel. 

Al, I can’t help you. I work for Senor Psychopath now.

Aladdin: Hey… can you make me a prince?
Genie: [opens ‘Royal Recipes’ book] Uh, let’s see. “Chicken à la King”? Nope. “Alaskan king crab”. [pulls out a crab clamped to his finger]Genie: [flicking it off] Ow. I hate when they do that. “Caesar salad-“[arm with a knife raises from the book trying to stab him]Genie: Aah! Et tu, Brute? No. Aha! “To make a prince.”

You ain’t never had a friend like me!

First, that fez and vest combo is much too third century. These patches. What are we trying to say? Beggar? No. Let’s work with me here. [after taking measurements, turns Aladdin’s rags into fine clothes] Ooh, I like it! Muy macho!

Allow me. Ten thousand years in a Cave of Wonders ought to chill him out!

Aladdin: Jasmine? I’m sorry I lied to you about being a prince.
Princess Jasmine: I know why you did.
Aladdin: Well, I guess… this… is goodbye?
Princess Jasmine: Oh, that stupid law. This isn’t fair! I love you.
Genie: Al, no problem. You’ve still got one wish left. Just say the word, and you’re a prince again.
Aladdin: But, Genie, what about your freedom?
Genie: Hey, it’s only an eternity of servitude. This is love! Al, you’re not gonna find another girl like her in a million years. Believe me, I know. I’ve looked.
