April O'Neil: "Toots"?

April O'Neil: Hey, you know what, that's okay. I'll do it myself.
Casey Jones: Fine, it's up to you. Just don't come around here asking for my help anymore.
April O'Neil: Casey, I wouldn't ask for your help if you were the last THING on the face of this planet.
Casey Jones: At least I know she thinks of me...

April O'Neil: Very funny. I told you, I haven't been up here in years.

April O'Neil: Okay, those guys in the black pajamas, they jumped me, and, and that rat... I saw *you* in the parking lot. That explains you. And you guys...
[the turtles]
April O'Neil: Um... I have no idea where you came from.
Splinter: If you will please just sit down and calm yourself, I will tell you where we came from.
April O'Neil: It talks!

Splinter: Fifteen years ago...
April O'Neil: Why don't I ever dream of Harrison Ford?

April O'Neil: I'd like to invite you all in but I really don't have anything to offer you guys except for some... frozen pizza.

Donatello: You said the magic word.
April O'Neil: You guys eat pizza?
Michaelangelo, Donatello: Doesn't everybody?
April O'Neil: Um, yeah... alright.
Leonardo: [from below] Hey, did she say pizza?

April O'Neil: You don't need an ambulance, do you?

[Slaps her hard on the cheek]
Foot Messenger: Shut it!

April O'Neil: [trying to change the subject from Charles giving her security] Hey, Danny, how's school going?
Danny: Fine.
Charles: Oh, wonderful. So wonderful, in fact, that I have to drive him there every morning now just to make sure he goes.

April O'Neil: So, what do you guys like on your pizza?
Michaelangelo: Oh, just the regular stuff: flies, stink bugs... It was a joke.

Michaelangelo: [imitating Rocky Balboa] Uh, yo well, uh, maybe I'll fight Apollo, uh, maybe I won't, you know. What do you think? Adrian.
[everyone laughs]
Michaelangelo: Okay, I got another one. Oh, this is totally cool.
Raphael: Oh no, not Cagney.
Michaelangelo: [imitating James Cagney] You dirty rat. You killed my brudda. You dirty rat. Oooh. Woo-hoo.
[everyone laughs]
April O'Neil: That must be Splinter's favorite.
[the turtles glare at her]
April O'Neil: It was a joke.
[they pause, then burst out laughing]

April O'Neil: [of Raphael] Well... I *was* going to give you guys a tour of the store. Shall we go get him?
Leonardo, Michaelangelo, Donatello: No.
Donatello: Uh... he just needs to blow off some steam.
Michaelangelo: Yeah.

Chief Sterns: We are presently executing a plan of redeployment that will minimize response time while maximizing coordination between patrol units and a decentralized networking scheme.
April O'Neil: I'm not sure I understood all of that, Chief Sterns. Would you mind repeating it, in English, perhaps?

April O'Neil: My nearest neighbors are about four miles away. I need to get to a phone and call my boss.

April O'Neil: And?
Casey Jones: Well, hey, you just saved yourself an eight-mile round-tripper. Um... You were fired.
April O'Neil: I just saved myself?
Casey Jones: [oblivious to the dark tone] Mm-hm.
Donatello, Michaelangelo: Uh-oh.
April O'Neil: What did you do? Did you take classes in insensitivity?
Casey Jones: I was just trying to break it to you easy.
April O'Neil: Oh, well you FAILED miserably...
Casey Jones: Hey, broadzilla, you wouldn't even be standin' here if it weren't for me, okay?
April O'Neil: Oh, well what do you want? You want a thank you?
Casey Jones: ...No. It's me who should thank you for that priviledge, right?
April O'Neil: Fine!
Casey Jones: Yeah.
April O'Neil: Thank you.
Casey Jones: No, thank YOU!
April O'Neil: You're welcome!
Casey Jones: YOU'RE welcome!
[they go into two separate rooms and slam the doors]
Donatello: Gosh, it's kinda like Moonlighting, isn't it?
[Michaelangelo nods]

Splinter: For 15 years now, we have lived here. Before that time, I was a pet of my master Yoshi. When we were forced to come to New York, I found myself for the first time without a home, wandering thew sewers, scavaging for whatever I could find. And then, one day, I came upon a shattered glass jar and four baby turtles.
Michaelangelo: [interrupts] That was us! Hee hee.
Donatello: Shut up! Oh, no...
Splinter: The little ones were crawling into a strange glowing ooze from a broken canister nearby. I gathered them up in an old coffee can and when I awoke the next morning, I received a shock. For they had doubled in size. I, too, was growing. Particularly in intellect. I was amazed by how intelligent they seemed, but nothing could have prepared me for what happened next: one of them spoke.
Young Michaelangelo: [in flashback] Pizza. Pizza.
Splinter: More words followed, and I began their training. Teaching them all that I had learned from my master. And soon, I gave them all names: Leonardo, Michaelangelo
Michaelangelo: That's me.
Splinter: Donatello.
[he makes a heroic-sounding hum]
Splinter: and Raphael.
April: I'm not dreaming, am I?
Splinter: No. I'm afraid not.

Chief Sterns: O'Neil... get in here!
April O'Neil: [to the technician on her way in] Time me.
Chief Sterns: Just what is it you hope to accomplish out there, besides BUSTING MY CHOPS?
April O'Neil: I think you know just as much as I do about this Foot Clan and I don't think you're doing anything about it.
Chief Sterns: You expect me to waste precious manpower because some immigrants are reminded of something that supposedly happened, years ago in Japan!
April O'Neil: Have you got anything else?
Chief Sterns: Are you tryin' to tell me HOW TO DO MY JOB?
Technician: [cut to April running out of the office, he checks his watch] 1:07. A new record.

April O'Neil: Are you guys sure you know where you're going?
Michaelangelo: 11th and Bleeker?
[Sniffs the air]
Michaelangelo: Nope, this is only 9th St. Ha ha! Get it?
April O'Neil: Yeah.
Michaelangelo: Okay!

[first lines]
April O'Neil: Much more than just a series of small, isolated incidents, it's now apparent that an organized criminal element is at work and at the moment, business is good. So good in fact that there appear to be no eyewitnesses to any of these crimes. With complaints ranging from purse snatching to breaking and entering, police switchboards have been swamped with the angry voices of more and more citizens who have fallen prey to the recent surge of crime that continues to plague the city. Instead of getting better, things are actually getting worse. Even more alarming is the baffling and often bizarre nature of these crimes. Merchandise of every size and description from skateboards to stereo systems has been disappearing from store shelves and storage areas at an alarming rate. Even the victims themselves rarely catch a glimpse of the thieves. Many don't even know they've been victimized until it's too late. In fact, police have yet to come up a single eyewitness. Only a few vague reports of young boys or teenagers at the scenes have been filed. But whoever is behind these crimes, one thing is certain, these are much than just a series of random isolated incidents. Crimes without criminals? An invisible gang at work? Who are we gonna call? Unfortunately the police are the only ones to combat what some are already dubbing the silent crime wave. But perhaps the most disturbing silence is that coming from city hall. April O'Neill, Channel 3 Eyewitness News.

April O'Neil: Will I ever see you guys again?
Michaelangelo: Indubitably!
Leonardo: Well, that depends on how fast you restock your pizza.

April O'Neil: Hasn't Raph been gone a long time?
Donatello: Nah, he does it all the time. He likes it!
April O'Neil: Are you sure?
Donatello: Don't worry. He'll probably be back any minute now...
[an unconscious Raphael is thrown through the skylight, landing at Donatello's feet]

April O'Neil: And then there's Casey Jones, a nine-year-old trapped in a man's body. He might be cute except for that pigheadedness...


Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014)
[from trailer]
Vernon Fenwick: So they're aliens?
April O'Neil: No, that's stupid. They're turtles.
Bernadette Thompson: Is there anything else we should know about them?
April O'Neil: They're ninjas.

[April meets the Turtles for the first time]
April O'Neil: What are you?
Leonardo: Well, miss, we're ninjas.
Raphael: We're mutants!
Donatello: Technically, we're turtles.
Michelangelo: And we're teenagers. But we can have adult conversations.
April O'Neil: So, you're... Ninja Mutant Turtle Teenagers?
Donatello: When you put it like that, it sounds ridiculous!

Bernadette Thompson: There are four six-foot talking turtles walking around New York City, and no one has seen them but you?
April O'Neil: That's what I'm telling you.
Bernadette Thompson: Okay, get out.

Eric Sachs: [shoots at April] This is history, repeating itself! Your father walked in on me, April, just like you did!
April O'Neil: You killed my father...

April O'Neil: Swing me toward him!
[the Turtles swing April at Shredder and she knocks him off]
Michelangelo: That's my girl!

Splinter: Everything they are, and everything they have become, was made possible by the bravery you displayed on that fateful night.
April O'Neil: I was just a little girl...
Splinter: And you gave us freedom, where others would have kept us in cages.

Raphael: Looking for this?
[holds up April's phone]
April O'Neil: No no no, don't break that! Please!
Leonardo: [takes the phone out of Raph's hand] How many times do I have to tell you? We don't break things, we fix them. Donnie already wiped the pic, genius! Problem solved! Moving on!
Raphael: Who made you boss?
Leonardo: You know who did.
[both get in each others' faces]
Michelangelo: Oooh, tension. It's been like thirty whole minutes since you had this conversation.

[the Turtles bring April to their lair]
Michelangelo: Welcome to my crib, girl!
April O'Neil: Where are we?
Michelangelo: This is our Fortress of Solitude, our Hogwarts, our Xavier's Academy, our secret Wonderland!
April O'Neil: [sniffs] Are we in the sewer?
Michelangelo: No...
Donatello: Technically, yes.

April O'Neil: SHREDDER!
[stabs the Shredder with one of Raphael's sais]
Shredder: You stupid little girl...

[deleted scene]
April O'Neil: [on air] Three days ago, New York would have called Eric Sachs its hero. But today, we know he's one of the greatest villains this city has ever faced. How were we so easily fooled? And what can we learn from this tragedy? Maybe, it's that heroes aren't exactly who you might expect them to be. They're not wealthy billionaires, they're not square-jawed comic-book characters with flowing capes. Heroes can be anyone. Like the vigilantes that saved this city. They were born in shadow, they live in shadow, they fight in shadow, and they always will.
[April and Vernon spot the Turtle Van moving through a crowd]

April O'Neil: They were my childhood pets!


Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze (1991)
April O'Neil: Chief Sterns! I wonder if I might ask you a few more questions, off the record?
Chief Sterns: Ms. O'Neil, my record on the record clearly shows that I have no "off the record" record, make a record of that!

April O'Neil: The rat is the cleanest one.

April O'Neil: I guess you're not the ones that can handle this.
Chief Sterns: That's what we do best, Miss O'Neil.

April O'Neil: Let me get you guys some napkins.
Michaelangelo: What for?

April O'Neil: And they said if you don't mean them at the construction site tonight...
Donatello: What?
April O'Neil: He said he'd send out Tokka and Rahzar again. This time into Central Park.
Donatello: Central Park? How are they gonna avoid all of those... people?
Splinter: Then, there is no choice but to meet as the Shredder wishes.

April O'Neil: He's just forcing you guys into fighting Tokka and Rahzar again.
Leonardo: We know.
April O'Neil: But...
Raphael: April, there's no other way.
April O'Neil: But you guys don't stand a chance.
Professor Jordan Perry: Wait! Wait just a moment. There might be a way!

April O'Neil: Where's Splinter?
Leonardo: He's been on the roof ever since he saw your report.
April O'Neil: Doing what?
Splinter: Coming.
[appears in window]
Splinter: to a decision.

April O'Neil: [after the investigation of the street Tokka and Rahzar rampaged the night before] Were there any large tooth or claw marks found?
Chief Sterns: How did you know that... I have no idea what you're talking about?

April O'Neil: [picks up phone] Donny?
Donatello: April...
April O'Neil: Where are you guys? Did you find a new place to live yet?
Donatello: Yeah, we'll bring you down. We've only had time to pick up Splinter and get a few essentials.
Michaelangelo: [holding out a bag of potato chips] Yeah, the bare essentials.
Donatello: The reason while we're calling is, have you seen Raphael by any chance?
April O'Neil: Raphael? Why, is he missing?
Leonardo: You know, there is still a little more stuff to help with, Michaelangelo!
Michaelangelo: Hey! I'm helping Donny!
[tries to pry the phone from him]
Michaelangelo: Gimme the phone!
Donatello: NO!
[flips Michaelangelo to the ground]
Donatello: So you haven't seen him at all then, huh?
Leonardo: Well, if she has, tell him thanks for wasting our time, because instead of going to look for the ooze like we should, we gotta go out and look for him instead!
[slams box on Donatello's foot]
Donatello: Owww!
April O'Neil: What was that?
Donatello: Leo says hi!
Michaelangelo: Gimme the phone! Gimme the phone!
Donatello: Oh, all right, all right, here!
Michaelangelo: April, this is Mikey, I'd just like to say: HELLOOOOO, muah, muah, muah, muah, muah...
Donatello: WOULD YOU GIVE ME THAT!
[April laughs as they start arguing again]

Leonardo: [the Turtles say their farewells to April before entering the sewers] See ya, April.
April O'Neil: Bye.
[Leo hops into the sewers]
Raphael: Wish us luck.
[Hops in]
Donatello: We'll be back for Splinter.
[Hops in]
Michaelangelo: [Imitating Humphrey Bogart] Well, the lives of two people don't amount to a hill o' beans in this crazy world, Elsa. That's why you're getting on that plane.
[April laughs]
Michaelangelo: Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow...
Leonardo: [Yanks Mikey into the sewer] Will you come on?
Michaelangelo: YEOW!

April O'Neil: Listen, I have reason to believe that this was caused by two... *really* big animals.
Chief Sterns: Ah, and what sort of animals might these be, Miss O'Neil?
April O'Neil: Well, I can't say exactly...
Chief Sterns: Uh-huh, and what makes you believe that they did this?
April O'Neil: Well, I can't say that either, but...
Chief Sterns: Okay and is there anything else you'd like not to tell me?


Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III (1993)
Donatello: [April trims the leg part of her uniform] Whoa, leg-o-rama!
April O'Neill: Hey, I'm allowed. It's my vacation.
Donatello, Leonardo: Absolutely! Shwing!

April O'Neill: [about Whit] He is lower than scum! He gives scum a bad name.
Walker: Of course he does, that's why I hired him.

Donatello: [gets up and looks around] Mudwrestling is defintely a spectator sport... Gross.
[picks up his helmet and pours out mud]
Donatello: Grosser. April? Yo!
April O'Neill: Here! Help me up.
[splashes mud at Donatello]
Donatello: Whoa, alright I'm comin'. A little mud, no problem.
[picks up April out of the mud but slips and falls on his back]
Donatello: Wait, wait.
April O'Neill: This is the worst rescue I've ever had.
Donatello: Help! I'm a turtle and I can't get up!
[April picks Donny up]
Donatello: Thanks.
April O'Neill: We better get out of here.
Donatello: Think of it the bright side, April. We could've landed in a great, big, greasy pile of...
April O'Neill: Don't even say it, Donny.

April O'Neill: This is absolutely the worst rescue I have ever had.

April O'Neill: Why don't you get a *real* job, cue ball?

April O'Neill: Would somebody please tell me what the heck is going on around here?
Donatello: Well, relax, April. It's just your, uh, ordinary time travel equal-mass-displacement kind of thing.

April O'Neill: You don't mean - you're not seriously suggesting that Donatello is going to make an incredibly arcane time travel machine, are you?
Leonardo, Michaelangelo, Raphael, Donatello: No, of course not!
Michaelangelo: That'd be totally bogus.
Raphael: Really stupid!
Donatello: Well, that's a relief.
Donatello: [points over his shoulder] No, that guy's gonna make it.

Whit: Take me with you.
April O'Neill: Where? New York? Nahh, you wouldn't fit in. I mean, uh,
[takes in his grungy appearance]
April O'Neill: well, actually you *would* fit in.

April O'Neill: I'm going to find an apartment. I have an idea we're going to be here for a long time.
Leonardo: An apartment?
Michaelangelo: Do they have apartments in Japan?
Raphael: Do I look like a real estate agent?
Leonardo: What about condos?


"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtle Tracks (#1.1)" (1987)
Michaelangelo: Pizza time!
Raphael: Who had the pepperoni and ice cream?
Donatello: I, I want some of the jelly beans and mushrooms.
Michaelangelo: Yeah, give me a slice of anchovies and peanut butter.
April O'Neil: How can you eat that junk?

April O'Neil: [sees the turtles for the first time] You're... you're not humans!
Raphael: Bingo. You got that right.

April O'Neil: Do you guys ever think of anything besides pizza?
Raphael: Not unless we have to.

April O'Neil: This is great. I must really be on to something hot if they're trying to kill me.

Donatello: [the basement is flooded with water causing April and the turtles to get caught in it] Got to get to safety, we'll drown!... Hey, what are we worrying about? We're turtles!
Raphael: [points at April] Yeah, but she's not!
[dives under water to save her]
April O'Neil: [coughs up water] Ah, I owe you one!
April O'Neil: [as they run up the stairs to out run the water] I don't know if I can take much more of this!
Raphael: Hey look on the bright side, at least it's not raining!

April O'Neil: Nice going, Raphael! Only half the people saw you!
Leonardo: I'm Leonardo.
April O'Neil: Oh, sorry.

Raphael: April, why would people make themselves look weirder than they already?
April O'Neil: I have no idea, Michelangelo.
Raphael: I'm Raphael!
April O'Neil: Oh, sorry.

Donatello: Why would people wanna make themselves deaf?
April O'Neil: I really haven't a clue, Leonardo.
Donatello: I'm Donatello.
April O'Neil: Sorry!

April O'Neil: What's your name?
Casey Jones: Casey Jones.
April O'Neil: [smiles] Hey...
[Mikey appears]
Michelangelo: One question... so are you two like a thing?

April O'Neil: If you want to go down swinging, these guys hit harder than anyone.

Casey Jones: [on the Turtles] Who are these guys?
April O'Neil: They're my friends.

Casey Jones: Kiss me, it'll make for a great diversion!
[April doesn't kiss Casey, people walk past them]
April O'Neil: The idea is to divert attention away from you!


"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Gauntlet (#1.9)" (2012)
April O'Neil: I am being hunted... by a giant pigeon!
[Raphael bursts into laughter... but stops when no one else does]
Raphael: I can't be the only one who's finds that funny.
Donatello: It's not funny Raph, there's a creature out there trying to hurt my April!... OUR April... April.

Leonardo: We're gonna set a trap for this pigeon man and make sure he never bothers you again.
Donatello: And I know what we can use as bait...
Michelangelo: Bread crumbs! Pigeons eat bread crumbs!
Donatello: I meant April.
Michelangelo: You're gonna let him eat April? I thought you liked her!
April O'Neil: Yeah!

April O'Neil: [about the pigeon] He would have torn me into pieces... if he hadn't slammed into the glass.
[Raphael laughs]
Raphael: Really, just me?

April O'Neil: Here I am, walking around in the big city, all alone! Oh, I sure hope some pigeon man doesn't come out and attack me! That would be the last thing I would want!
Donatello: What are you doing?
April O'Neil: You wanted me to be bait, I'm bait!
Donatello: That's not how bait talks!
April O'Neil: How do you know how bait talks?
Donatello: I know bait doesn't talk BACK!
Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo: Awwww...
Michelangelo: Oh no you didn't!


"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Attack of the Mousers (#1.3)" (2003)
Splinter: Young woman, we have something most important to discuss.
April O'Neil: What?
Splinter: We have never revealed ourselves to the other world. You have placed us all in great danger.
Leonardo: But, Master Splinter... she was in trouble and we helped her.
Raphael: Yeah, aren't you always teaching us to do the right thing?
Splinter: As you grow older, you will learn there are many ways to do the right thing. But there is no going back. I'm afraid we find ourselves at your mercy.
April O'Neil: Oh, I would never tell anybody. I mean, who would believe me?
Donatello: She's got a point.
Michaelangelo: Yeah! We're unbelievable!
Raphael: Geez, where's your off switch?

April O'Neil: Seriously, I promise.
Splinter: ...I believe you.
Leonardo: Is this another lesson, Master Splinter? How to sense the truth?
Splinter: No, this is called trusting your gut.

Baxter Stockman: [to the turtles] What are you?
April O'Neil: They're with me!
Baxter Stockman: April! You're alive?
April O'Neil: And kicking. I've got enough evidence to put you away for years, Dr. Stockman.

Splinter: What will you do now, Ms. O'Neil? You are most defiantly out of a job.
April O'Neil: I'm not exactly sure.
Donatello: We'll help you get back on your feet.
April O'Neil: You guys, you've all been, well... great. And by guys, I guess I mean four big, green talking turtles and a giant talking rat.
Donatello: Here's to the new team.
[raises glass]

April O'Neil: You're INSIDE THE WORM? Do you get a signal in there?

April O'Neil: Salt?
Donatello: Salt's ionic strength can burn through a worm's neurosectory cells. It's like acid!
April O'Neil: Yeah, but... SALT?

April O'Neil: You did it, Donnie! You saved the city!
Casey Jones: I'm gonna take back everything I said about you, Donnie. You rule.

Leonardo: You did it, Sensei.
Splinter: With the help of my brave sons, yes, we all did it.
Raphael: What about Karai?
April O'Neil: I still can't believe that evil witch is your daughter. Um... Sorry to be so honest.
Splinter: Perhaps one day she will believe the truth. But that is her decision.


"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Shredder Strikes Back: Part 1 (#1.17)" (2003)
Raphael: [watching football on TV] Panthers, Rams, Bears. They even got Dolphins. Think they'd have room for something a little more... reptilian.
Donatello: The Turtles? My friend, unfortunately the lowly turtle has been saddled by society with a stereotype of being velocity challenged.
[pause]
Raphael: Say what?
Michelangelo: [steps in front of the TV] May I have your attention please!
[lets out a long belch]
Raphael, Donatello: Cool.
[applaud for Mikey]
April O'Neil: Ewww!
Splinter: [to April] This is what I live with ALL THE TIME.

April O'Neil: Hey, what's burning?
Raphael: Mikey's cooking.

Michelangelo: Scrambled's okay with everybody, right?
Raphael, Donatello, Splinter, April O'Neil: AGAIN?

April O'Neil: So, one would think that table manners were a part of their training...?
Splinter: One would think.


"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: April's Fool (#3.11)" (1989)
Raphael: [noticing April arriving at the lair wearing a yellow ball gown, high heels, dimond earrings, a jeweled necklace, makeup, and her hair styled differently] Wow!, talk about embraceable! Who is that?
April O'Neil: Hi guys, it's me.
Donatello: Gosh April you look just like a... a girl!
Leonardo: You look lovely!
Michelangelo: Truly tubuloso!
Raphael: Yeah, you clean up real good!
Splinter: [also enamored] April, you make this ancient rodent feel young again
April O'Neil: Thanks guys! You're just a bunch of big green sweeties, and you're the nicest rodent I know! And now I'm off to the Malcurian Embassy to cover a fancy party!

April O'Neil: [puts on Princess Mallory's pink dress, white gloves and crown, then hears the turtle com] Oh, what a time for the Turtle Com!
[answers it]
April O'Neil: April here, what's up?
Donatello: [worried] April are you alright? We just spotted Shredder and his two hench mutants!
April O'Neil: Aw you fellas are so sweet to worry about me, I'm in Princess Mallory's room on the trail of a hot story so...
[Shredder, Bebop, and Rocksteady break into the room]
Shredder: Grab her!
Rocksteady: With pleasure!
[picks her up and holds her in his arms]
April O'Neil: [while hitting him on the head] Let go of me you...
[Shredder renders her unconscious with a nerve pinch to the neck]
Donatello: April? April? April, answer me!

April O'Neil: [wakes up, holds her head] Ohhhh!
[notices Rocksteady carrying her over his shoulder]
April O'Neil: Oh, let me go you slobbering beast! Just wait until the Turtles get their hands on you!
Shredder: Wait, that voice... it sounds familiar!
[uncovers April's hair and gets a better look at her face]
Shredder: Just as I thought! This isn't Princess Mallory, you moronic mutants, it's April O'Neil!
Rocksteady: The dame reporter? What are we going to do, boss?
Shredder: We're going to make the best of a bad situation!
[grabs April by the arm and drags her away]
April O'Neil: Shredder everywhere you go is a bad situation!

April O'Neil: [encounters two doors] One of these doors should lead to the roof, but which one?
[opens one]
April O'Neil: Maybe it's this one...
Shredder: [emerges from the door imitating a game show host] You should've tried Door Number Two!
[April slams the door shut, she tries the other door... ]
Rockstedy: [grabs her] Gotcha!
Shredder: You may not be the princess, but you look enough like her to ensure our safe getaway if you keep that pretty little mouth shut!
April O'Neil: Not a chance Shredder!
Shredder: As you wish!
[pulls out a gag]
