What does Steven Spielberg‘s classic film The Goonies (1985) have in common with Lethal Weapon (1987), Superman (1978), and the scary horror flick The Omen (1976)? They were all directed by Richard Donner. The films also have similar “good vs evil” storylines. The formula is simple: Colorful bad guys (the Fratelli brothers and their villainous mother) + a reluctant-hero (the Walsh brothers and their Goonie friends) + tons of memorable dialogue like all of the corny famous Goonies quotes and one-liners.
The Best Goonies Quotes
There are so many great Goonies quotes that it’s hard to pick out just the best Chunk quotes or best Sloth quotes or best Data quotes, but we hope you like our selection. Here are the best Goonies quotes from Steven Spielberg‘s classic 1985 kid adventure, The Goonies.
- Elgin Perkins: Is your mommy here?
- Brandon Walsh: No, sir. Actually, she’s out at the market buying Pampers for all us kids.
- Stef: This is ridiculous. It’s crazy. I feel like I’m babysitting, except I’m not getting paid.
Chunk’s Confession Goonies
- Francis Fratelli: (The Fratellis are interrogating Chunk) Tell us everything! Everything!
- Chunk: Everything. OK! I’ll talk! In 3rd grade, I cheated on my history exam. In 4th 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 5th 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-Hua-ahh — 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.
- Jake Fratelli: I’m beginning to like this kid, Ma!
- Stef: Data, where are you going?

The Goonies Cast: Where Are They Now?
In addition to being required viewing for every tween, Goonies was also a breeding ground for several new child actors: Josh Brolin (No Country For Old Men, True Grit, Men In Black 3, American Gangster), Sean Astin (The Lord of the Rings, Rudy, Encino Man) and Martha Plimpton (Pecker, 200 Cigarettes). The Goonies also stars Jeff Cohen, Corey Feldman, Kerri Green, Jonathan Luke Ke Huy Quan, John Matuszak, Robert Davi, Joe Pantoliano, and Anne Ramsey.
So where are the Goonies cast today? Some of them went on to star in major film projects, while others chose to pursue life behind the camera. Here’s what the Goonies cast been up to since the film’s release in 1985.
- Sean Astin (Mikey): Goonies was Sean Astin’s first major film. In the years since he’s starred in a string of successful projects including Rudy (1993) and The Lord of the Rings trilogy (2001-2003) and the second season of Stranger Things (2017).
- Corey Feldman (Mouth): Goonies helped launch Feldman as a 1980s teen idol. He followed up Goonies with a string of Hollywood hits, including Stand By Me (1986), The Lost Boys (1987), The ‘Burbs (1989), and License to Drive (1988).
- Josh Brolin (Brand): Brolin didn’t have the same instant success as some of his costars, like Felman and Astin, but he would go on to have an incredibly successful film career. After Goonies, Brolin acted in smaller films and TV shows until 2007 with his breakout roles in No Country for Old Men, American Gangster, and Grindhouse. Some of Brolin’s other notable films include True Grit (2010), W. (2008), Men In Black 3 (2012), and both Avengers: Infinity War (2018) and Avengers: Endgame (2019), where he played the mega villain, Thanos.
- Jeff Cohen (Chunk): If you’ve been wondering what happened to Chunk from Goonies, you aren’t alone. Jeff Cohen, the actor who played Chunk, quit acting shortly after the film. He’s still “in” show business, just not in front of the camera. Cohen is now an entertainment lawyer at Cohen Gardner Law in Beverly Hills, and in 2011 he wrote a book on dealmaking.
- Jonathan Ke Quan (Data): At the time Goonies was released, Jonathan Ke Quan was already a familiar face in Hollywood. Right before Goonies, he played Harrison Ford’s sidekick in Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom (1984). But after doing a few more acting roles in projects like Encino Man (1992) and an episodic role in the TV show Head Of The Class (1986), Ke Quan decided to move behind the camera. He now mostly does stunt coordinating projects.
- Kerri Green (Andy): In addition to Goonies, Green starred in a couple more 1980s hit films including Lucas (1986) and Summer Rental (1985). She then took a break from acting to attend Vassar College. After acting in a string of TV shows, she now has a film production company called Independent Women Artists.
- Martha Plimpton (Stef): After Goonies, Plimpton went on to star in star in both film and broadway projects. A few of her major stage roles include The Coast of Utopia (2006-2007), Top Girls (2007-2008), Pal Joey (2008-2009), and Hedda Gabler (2005). She has three Tony Awards nominations. Plimpton’s notable TV and film roles have included Pecker (1998), 200 Cigarettes (2002), The Mosquito Coast (1986), The Blacklist, and Frozen II (2019).
- John Matuszak (Sloth): Professional football player turned actor, Matuszak’s other TV and film credits include One Crazy Summer (1986), Cheers, M*A*S*H, and Miami Vice. He died in 1989, just a couple years after Goonies from an accidental overdose.
- Robert Davi (Jake): After reviewing Davi’s list of work, it looks like he is either cast as a villain or a cop. Davi has played the “bad guy” in Die Hard (1988), License To Kill (1989), and Stargate: Atlantis (2004-2008), to name a few. But when he’s not the bad guy, he’s a cop or FBI agent. You might have recognized Davi playing law enforcement roles in The Pretender and Profiler, among others.
- Joe Pantoliano (Francis): In addition to having significant roles in The Sopranos (1999-2006), Sense8 (2015-2018), and The Matrix (1999), Pantoliano is also an author. His book is titled “Asylum: Hollywood Tales from My Great Depression: Brain Dis-Ease, Recovery, and Being My Mother’s Son” and details his struggles with depression.
- Anne Ramsey (Mama Fratelli): Ramsey had something in common with her young Goonies costars, Goonies was the first major film for all of them. Throughout the 1970s, Ramsey played small episodic roles in TV shows, including Wonder Woman, CHiPs, and Charle’s Angels. But she wouldn’t get her first significant film role until The Goonies when she was already in her mid-50s. Ramsey followed up Goonies with Danny DeVito and Billy Crystals’ film, Throw Momma from the Train (1987) and received an Oscar nomination for her acting. Ramsey sadly passed away from cancer a couple of years later in 1989.
