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.

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.

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.

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!
