The Magic School Bus (1994–1997)
Miss Frizzle: Take chances, make mistakes, get messy!
Miss Frizzle: [theme song opening] Seatbelts, everyone!
Arnold: *Please* let this be a normal field trip.
All: With the Frizz? No way!
Wanda Li: What are we gonna do, what are we gonna do, what are we gonna do?
[repeated line, after Carlos makes a joke]
Miss Frizzle: Okay, bus, do your stuff!
Dorothy Ann: According to my research...
Arnold: It's too cold.
Dorothy Ann: I guess there's no heater in a bus-igator because it's a reptile.
Arnold: Then move the bus-igator to where it's warmer.
Dorothy Ann: [Engine won't turn over] I can't do that either. The bus-igator isn't working.
Arnold: It's probably too cold, that's why.
Ralphie Tennelli: [to the Ralphiebot] Bow to your ruler and master: Ralphie the Magnificent!
Arnold: It's not bowing.
Keesha Franklin: Would you blame it? I wouldn't either.
Phoebe Terese: I might have made a mistake about that lizard. And I might have made a mistake about that jackrabbit. And I might have even made a mistake about that tortoise, but there's one thing I know I'm not wrong about.
Arnold: How much you wish you'd stayed home today?
Wanda Li: [on their way to the sound museum] So what if the sound of Carlos's instrument stays...
[instrument sounds of rattles, grinds, and groans]
Wanda Li: ...just like that?
Dorothy Ann: Ooh, our concerto will be ruined. All the other schools will laugh at us, and it'll be the end of the world as we know it. Other than that, nothing.
Phoebe Terese: C'mon, Arnold, let him go. It's just an egg.
Arnold: But it's Dr. Skeledon's egg. And it's up to me to get it back to her!
Phoebe Terese: Gee, what a guy!
Keesha Franklin: It must be cold down there because Saturn's pretty far away from the sun.
Tim: But Ms. Frizzle said "cold and dark".
Janet: It could be very, very dark on Saturn!
Carlos Ramon: Oh, no you don't! You just want to grab more stuff!
Janet: Hey, I'm just trying to help! If you want to play "Let's Find Ms. Frizzle Without A Map" for the rest of your life, that's *fine* with me!
Ralphie Tennelli: It's simple. All we have to do is build a robot that looks like me.
Carlos Ramon: [holds a hubcap up to his face] Like this?
[the class is stuck in the water cycle, and they end up in the girls' bathroom through the plumbing]
Ralphie Tennelli: Hey, your bathroom is way nicer than ours!
Phoebe Terese: I know Arnold likes rocks, but do you really think he'd swallow one?
Arnold: Ms. Frizzle could be on Saturn, couldn't she?
Wanda Li: Okay, Arnold, but it's YOUR job to keep your crazy cousin under control!
Wanda Li: Cheer up, Arnold. A famous poet once said, "All the world's a field trip, and all the kids in our class are merely guinea pigs"... or did Ms. Frizzle say that?
Wanda Li: [of the robot] He doesn't move or bend!
Phoebe Terese: He doesn't do anything!
Keesha Franklin: Haha! Just like Ralphie!
Keesha Franklin: That's not blood, that's tomato juice! Like Ms. Frizzle served at the class picnic!
Phoebe Terese: [reading the feeding chart at a reptile health spa] Feed the lizards only once a week? And the alligators only once a month! How inhumane!
Janet: Arnold told me all about your field trips, Dorothy Ann.
Dorothy Ann: [alarmed] What did he say!
Janet: That they were, and I quote, "highly unusual".
Tim: Anybody have a good Plan B?
Wanda Li: There aren't any good Plan Bs, Tim! If they were good, they'd be Plan As!
Phoebe Terese: There, you don't look nearly so orange now.
Arnold: [looks at reflection] Phoebe! I can't go out there covered in flour! I look like a pumpkin pie!
Phoebe Terese: [after Arnold has just saved the class from a T-Rex] It's a good thing you didn't stay home today, Arnold!
Phoebe Terese: [on doing a slam dunk] If only I could just do it once, just to see what it feels like!
Tim: Patience, Wanda, fishing is an art.
Dorothy Ann: So is tightrope walking, but we don't have time to learn it.
Wanda Li: What're we gonna do? What're we gonna do? What're we gonna do?
Phoebe Terese: Wanda, what're we gonna do?
Phoebe Terese: At my old school, we never rode on bees.
Keesha Franklin: We *are* at your old school, Pheobe.
Phoebe Terese: Oh, right.
Phoebe Terese: At my old school, we'd use a bulldozer to move heavy things.
Janet: That's *great*, Phoebe. And where're we supposed to get a bulldozer?
Radius Ulna Humerus: [to Ms. Frizzle] Well, no one's more important than you, my little togglebolt.
Wanda Li: My little togglebolt?
Phoebe Terese: Something tells me we shouldn't be here.
Arnold: Like what?
[they wake up a Tyrannosaurus Rex]
Phoebe Terese: Like that!
Janet: We know the real reason why you make a complete wimp like a butterfly as a mascot.
Phoebe Terese: You do?
Ralphie Tennelli: We do?
Janet: Isn't today's soccer game against... your old school?
Mr. Ramon - Carlos' Dad: Well, you know what they say - bat breath is better than no breath at all!
All: Mr. Ramon!
[Ms. Frizzle is taking the parents through a bat-filled castle]
Mr. Perlstein - Arnold's Dad: What *is* that smell?
Mr. Ramon - Carlos' Dad: That's bat poop, Mr. Perlstein. Better get used to it!
Mr. Perlstein - Arnold's Dad: Maybe we should have stayed home tonight.
Arnold: [overhearing further down the cave] Dad! You took the words right out of my mouth!
Arnold: Don't feel bad, Phoebe. Only a giant spider could trap that general.
Phoebe Terese: Yes! Arnold, you're a genius!
