Wasn’t Tangled just an amazing slam-dunk of a movie? Seriously, I still hum “When Will My Life Begin” as I’m buzzing around the house cleaning.

Grossing an impressive $592.4 million at the box office, it was certainly a runaway success (that changed the CGI animation scene forever!).

Now, don’t get me wrong – I adore Rapunzel and the diva-esque Mother Gothel.

But there’s something about the roguishly handsome Flynn Rider that just takes the cake.

With some of the best lines in the entire script, you might just be on the hunt for a few Flynn Rider quotes to make you chuckle.

And that’s where I come in!

I’ve gathered together a list of the best Flynn Rider quotes that you’re going to love. From romantic lines to quick quips, I’ve got them all.

Now let’s dive in!

Who Is Flynn Rider?

Before I dive into a list of my all-time favorite Flynn Rider quotes, you might be looking to learn more about this gorgeous guy.

To start, he’s one of the official Disney princes as he gained this title by marrying Rapunzel at the end of the movie!

But otherwise, he’s the deuteragonist of the 2010 movie Tangled and is known for his incredible quick wit and humor.

Unlike other Disney princes, Flynn wasn’t born into privilege and is committing crimes and running from the law.

Before meeting Rapunzel, that is!

Although he was technically born to King Edmund as Horace (according to the Tangled series), he doesn’t know about this in Tangled.

It’s also worth mentioning that Flynn was originally designed to be a bandit prince type character.

But the animators weren’t exactly sure HOW to create a character that would make people everywhere swoon.

And that’s where the “Hot Man Meeting” comes in!

This is an actual thing that was helmed by Nathan Greno and Bryon Howard in which they gathered all the female employees in the studio.

From here, they brainstormed what made a man charming, good-looking, and all-around irresistible.

If you don’t believe me, here’s what the guys said:

“…all the ladies of the studio came into the ‘Hot Man Meeting’, where we gathered pictures of their favorite handsome men—we collected pictures from the Internet and from books and from women’s wallets. They were very specific about what they liked and what they didn’t like.”

Although Flynn is relatively arrogant, underneath it all he’s a deeply sensitive and charming rogue with an amazing capacity for love.

And that’s why we all adore him!

What Nicknames Does Flynn Rider Have?

Although Flynn Rider’s official name is Eugene Fitzherbert, he’s picked up quite a few nicknames over the years!

Among the best of them are:

  • Rider
  • Mr. Rider
  • Tiger Fancy Pants
  • Fitzherjerk
  • Cheekbones
  • Your Royal Travesty
  • King of the Wild
  • Fishskin
  • Mr. Groom
  • Pretty Boy
  • Horace
  • Eugedals
  • G-Bug
  • Big Ears
  • Captain
  • Captain Fitzherbert
  • Clovis

Rapunzel: Rapunzel.

Flynn Rider: Gesundheit.

2. Rapunzel: I’ve been looking out of a window for eighteen years, dreaming about what I might feel like when those lights rise in the sky. What if it’s not everything I dreamed it would be?

Flynn Rider: It will be.

Rapunzel: And what if it is? What do I do then?

Flynn Rider: Well, that’s the good part, I guess. You get to go find a new dream.

3. Flynn Rider: Oh… oh no… where is my satchel?

Rapunzel: [proudly] I’ve hidden it. Somewhere you’ll never find it.

Flynn Rider: [Looks around the room for 2 seconds] It’s in that pot, isn’t it? [Rapunzel hits him with her frying pan. He comes round with Pascal’s tongue in his ear]

5. “This is kind of an off-day for me. This doesn’t normally happen.”

6. “[pathetically] You broke my smolder.”

7. “You know, I can’t help but notice you seem a little at war with yourself here.”

8. “Now, I’m only picking up bits and pieces here, of course. Overprotective mother, forbidden road trip. I mean, this is serious stuff. But let me ease your conscience. This is part of growing up. A little rebellion, a little adventure, that’s good. Healthy, even.”

9. “I know. You’re way overthinking this, trust me. Does your mother deserve it? No. Would this break her heart and crush her soul? Of course. But you’ve just got to do it.”

13. “You were my new dream.”

14. Flynn Rider: “Ahh.. yeah, well. I’ll spare you the sob story of poor orphan Eugene Fitzherbert. It’s a little bit of a… it’s a little bit of a downer. [Rapunzel moves closer to Flynn, eager to listen to the story] There was this book. A book I use to read every night to all the younger kids. The Tales of Flynigan Rider! Swashbuckling rogue, richest man alive, not bad with the ladies either. Not that he’d ever brag, of course.”

Rapunzel: Hmm. Was he a thief, too?

Flynn Rider: Well, no. Actually, he had enough money to do anything that he wanted to do. He could go anywhere that he wanted to go. And – and for a kid with nothing, I don’t know. It just seemed like the better option. You can’t tell anyone about this, okay? It could ruin my whole reputation.

Rapunzel: Hey. For the record, I like Eugene Fitzherbert much better than Flynn Rider.

Flynn Rider: Well, then you’d be the first. But thank you.

What is the Flynn Rider Smolder?

The Flynn Rider Smolder is what Flynn pulls out when he’s trying to charm women (or virtually anyone!).

It’s his signature flirt move, and I’ve got to say – it works.

What was Flynn Rider’s catchphrase?

I don’t think Flynn has a particular catchphrase per se, but I’d say his most iconic line was:

“I know not who you are, or how I came to find you, but may I just say … hi. How ya doin’? The name’s Flynn Rider.”

What is Flynn Rider’s age gap with Rapunzel?

I’ve actually written an entire post about Flynn Rider’s age as it’s been the subject of a bit of controversy over the years.

But in theory, Rapunzel and Flynn’s age gap is between 5 and 8 years (depending on which source you believe!).

Is there a Tangled 2?

Unfortunately, there isn’t a Tangled sequel and there isn’t one on the books at the moment.

The closest you’ll get is the short film Tangled Ever After.

Why did Eugene cut Rapunzel’s hair so short?

There’s no official reason for why Flynn cut Rapunzel’s hair so short (we all gasped, I know!).

But it’s probably down to the fact that he was near death and just needed to get it done quickly to remove her powers.

Why didn’t Flynn let Rapunzel heal him?

Flynn didn’t let Rapunzel heal him during the movie as he deemed her freedom more important than his life. By not healing Flynn, he was able to cut her hair!

There you have it: the ultimate list of Flynn Rider quotes that’ll make you want to watch Tangled again!
