"The Nut Job" movie quotes provide the dialogue for the 3D animated movie about a squirrel tasked with breaking into a nut shop. The computer animated comedy film was directed by Peter Lepeniotis using a screenplay he co-wrote with Lorne Cameron. "The Nut Job" opened in theaters on January 17, 2014.

In "The Nut Job," Surly (voiced by Will Arnett) is a mischievous squirrel who, along with fellow squirrels Grayson (voiced by Brendan Fraser) and Andie (voiced by Kathryn Heigl), inadvertently destroys a vendor nut cart, essentially eliminating the winter food source for all of his critter park friends. As a result, Raccoon (voiced by Liam Neeson), the leader of the park, banishes Surly from the area.

Surly thinks he is done for it when he stumbles upon something that can fix everything, a nut shop. With the help of his rat friend Buddy (voiced by Robert Tinkler) and a pug named Precious (voiced by Maya Rudolph) and others, Surly embarks on the difficult mission to break into the nut shop to steal delicious nuts and provide all in the park with plentiful food for the long winter ahead.

"The Nut Job" joins theaters already buzzing with several Oscar contenders, including "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues" "Her," "American Hustle," "Saving Mr. Banks," August: Osage County, "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug," and "Frozen."

Mole: "I do not dig!"
Jimmy: "Because you're blind as a bat!"
Mole: "What? Who said that?"

Surely Surly would have the mole dig, as that what moles do, right? Not so fast. As Jimmy points out, this mole, and his blindness, make him less than the optimal choice.
