Rock Dog movie quotes help tell the story in the film about one Tibetan mastiff who seeks to become a rock star. The animated family movie was directed by Ash Brannon using a screenplay he created with Kurt Voelker based on the graphic novel Tibetan Rock Dog by Zheng Jun. Rock Dog opened theatrically in the United States on February 24, 2017.
In Rock Dog, Bodi (voiced by Luke Wilson) is a music-loving Tibetan mastiff dog who lives on Snow Mountain with his father, Khampa (voiced by J. K. Simmons). Just as his father does, Bodi is believed to one day become a guard to the sheep on the mountain, but Bodi yearns for a different career, one as a rock star. After Khampa relents, Bodi heads to the city to pursue his dream.
Bodi hooks up with British rock legend and cat Angus Scattergood (voiced by Eddie Izzard). Angus begins to mentor Bodi and teach him how to be a rock star. But Bodi's travels to the city also are noticed by Khampa's nemesis, Linnux (voiced by Lewis Black), the leader of a gang. Linnux desperately wants to take control of Snow Mountain and sends his henchman Riff (voiced by Kenan Thompson) to kidnap Bodi for leverage. But things don't exactly go as planned.
Little Something About a Garbage Truck
Angus Scattergood: Have you ever composed?
Bodi: I have this one this one little something about a garbage truck.
Angus Scattergood: Waste management, mate, is not very rock and roll, is it?
Angus and Bodi talk about composing original music, though each seems to have a different idea about what that should be. Bodi wants to sing about a garbage truck but Angus puts the brakes on that idea fast.
I've Decided to Become a Musician
Bodi: Dad, I've decided to become a musician.
Khampa: You're not going to be a musician, Bodi. You're going to be a guard!
When Bodi announces to his father, Khampa, that he wants to pursue his dream of music in these Rock Dog movie quotes, his father's response isn't exactly what Bodi wanted. As Khampa explains, Bodi is meant to be a guard dog, not a musician.
Pick One, Any One
Angus Scattergood: If you want to be a rock musician, you gotta have a proper axe. Pick one, any one.
Bodi: How about that one?
Angus Scattergood: No, no, no
Bodi: This one?
Angus Scattergood: No, no, not that one. What about this one?
After rock god Angus Scattergood takes Bodi under his wing (paw?), Angus asks Bodi to pick out a guitar in these Rock Dog movie quotes. But when Angus says pick any one, he really means to pick the oldest, cheapest one in the room.
You Blew Up My Room
Angus Scattergood: You are totally on fire. You blew up my room. You blew up my room!
When Angus tells Bodi that he's on fire and blew up his room, Angus isn't kidding. Bodi literally blew up Angus' room and it's now in total disarray.
