Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead Quotes

Buzz Lines: What's Your Favorite Quote From Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead?

I still remember the first time I watched Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead when I was a kid. I'll be honest, the whole dead babysitter plot kind of creeped me out a little bit, but over time I grew to look on the totally '90s comedy with nostalgic fondness. I'm still envious of how cool Christina Applegate's teenage fashion maven Sue Ellen is, so as a tribute to her and her wacky family, I present my favorite quotes from the film. What are yours?


  • "The dishes are done, man." — Kenny
  • "I'm right on top of that, Rose!" — Sue Ellen
  • "I mean, I never asked you to whisk the couch." — Sue Ellen
