101 Dalmatians is a 1996 American family comedy film written and produced by John Hughes and directed by Stephen Herek. It is the second adaptation of Dodie Smith's 1956 novel The Hundred and One Dalmatians produced by Walt Disney Pictures following the 1961 animated film of the same name. The film stars Glenn Close as the iconic villainess Cruella de Vil, and Jeff Daniels as Roger, the owner of the 101 dalmatians. In 2000, a theatrical sequel was released titled 102 Dalmatians with Close and Tim McInnerny reprising their roles.
Cruella De Vil: You beasts! But I'm not beaten yet. You've won the battle, but I'm about to win the wardrobe. My spotty puppy coat is in plain sight and leaving tracks. In a moment I'll have what I came for, while all of you will end up as sausage meat, alone on some sad, plastic plate. Dead and meaty and red. No friends, no family, no pulse. Just slapped between two buns, smothered in onions, with fries on the side. Cruella De Vil has the last laugh!
Roger: Fools aren't born, Pongo. Pretty girls make them in their spare time.
Anita: (after believing Roger is taking Perdy, holding up her purse) Now, unhand my dog, or I will hit you again!
Roger: YOUR dog?
Anita: Yes, that is my dog, will you let her go?
Roger: Excuse me.
(lifts Perdy's leg as Pongo hides his head, turns back to Anita)
Roger: It's a she.
Anita: (nods) Mm-hmm.
Roger: (Pongo appears from behind Anita; unhappily) Hello, Pongo.
