Trying to learn the location of the Goonies and the secret treasure, the villainous Fratelli brothers are interrogating a Goonie they have captured by threatening to put his hand in a blender.

Francis Fratelli (Joe Pantoliano): Tell us everything! Everything!

Chunk (Jeff Cohen): Everything. OK! I'll talk! In third grade, I cheated on my history exam. In fourth grade, I stole my uncle Max's toupee and I glued it on my face when I was Moses in my Hebrew school play. In fifth grade, I knocked my sister Edie down the stairs and I blamed it on the dog. ... When my mom sent me to the summer camp for fat kids and then they served lunch I got nuts and I pigged out and they kicked me out. ... But the worst thing I ever done: I mixed a pot of fake puke at home and then I went to this movie theater, hid the puke in my jacket, climbed up to the balcony and then, t-t-then, I made a noise like this: hua-hua-hua-huaaaaaaa — and then I dumped it over the side, all over the people in the audience. And then, this was horrible, all the people started getting sick and throwing up all over each other. I never felt so bad in my entire life.

Mikey (Sean Astin): Goonies never say die!

Conceiving one of his villain-foiling inventions:

Data (Ke Huy Quan): Hey, I've got a great idea you guys! Slick shoes!

Mikey and Mouth (Corey Feldman): Slick shoes? Are you crazy?

Mikey: Don't you realize? The next time you see sky, it'll be over another town. The next time you take a test, it'll be in some other school. Our parents, they want the best of stuff for us. But right now, they got to do what's right for them. Because it's their time. Their time! Up there! Down here, it's our time. It's our time down here. That's all over the second we ride up Troy's bucket.

Stef (Martha Plimpton): Data, where are you going?

Data: I'm setting booty traps.

Stef: You mean booby traps?

Data: That's what I said! Booby traps. God. These Guys!

Finding a moment for romance during their trek through the caves, Andy (Kerri Green) has accidentally kissed Mikey, who wears braces, when she intended to kiss his older brother Brandon (Josh Brolin).

Stef: OK, you kissed. Now tell.

Andy: There's something weird.

Stef: What? What is it?

Andy: Does Brand wear braces?

Andy: Why are you laughing? Stef, it was beautiful.

Stef: Next time you kiss him, do it with your eyes open. It's a whole different experience.

And later ...

Andy: Brand, what happened to your braces?

Brandon: Braces? I don't wear braces, Mikey wears bra- ... Mikey! That little ...

Andy: Shhh!

Upon reaching the pirate ship full of treasure, Mikey has a moment with the skeleton of the captain, One-Eyed Willie.

Mikey: Hi Willie. Oh, I'm Mike Walsh. You've been expecting me, haven't you? Well, I made it. I beat you. I got here in one piece ... so far.

Mikey: (Lifts up Willie's patch.) So, that's why they call you One-Eyed Willie, One-Eyed Willie.

Mikey: We had a long comment, huh, Willie? You know something, Willie? You're the first Goonie.

The rest of the Goonies show up.

Mikey: Yo. Hi, guys. How's it going? This is Willie, One-Eyed Willie. Say hi, Willie. Those are my friends, the Goonies.
