- "Rowley Jefferson, the principal is going to hear about this!"
- -Mrs. Irvine yelling at Greg
In the book, she sees Greg Heffley on a safety patrol chasing some kindergartners with a worm and mistakes him for Rowley Jefferson, as he is borrowing his coat. She yells at him from her front porch and says that the principal will hear about his behavior.
In the movie, Greg forces the kindergartners in a ditch after he thinks he sees some teenagers who ambushed him on Halloween driving by and persuades them to go in by talking about flesh-eating aliens. When Mrs. Irvine comes out, Greg makes a run for it. After she finds the kindergartners, one of them asks "Are you going to eat us?"
- Karin Konoval and Kinua McWatt, who acted as one of the kindergartners, also acted together in the movie adaptation of Dog Days.
