In this scene two people are discussing the cat and what she had for breakfast:

Wife: Did you see how much she ate? I don't know where she puts it all!
Husband: She did eat quite a bit, but we don't know how long she's been without eating.

My question is how do you say "quite a bit" in Spanish, meaning not a huge amount, but more than one would expect?

You just say "mucho". There's no direct translation for "quite a bit." You could say "más que lo usual" (more than usual).

And then you'd call the cat a Gorda. ;)
