Quotes

Leonardo: We turtles don't know the meaning of the word 'defeat'.

Michaelangelo: That's right. We never bothered to look it up in the dictionary.

Raphael: Okay, April, where you hiding?

Leonardo: Hey, it's April's wallet.

Raphael: And over there.

Donatello: April's press pass.

Raphael: Yeah, I'd know that wad of used chewing gum anywhere.

Michaelangelo: Uh, you get the feeling April's in trouble?

Donatello: Well, either that, or she's got a big hole in her purse.

[they discover it on a landing]

Donatello: April's purse. Come on.

Leonardo: It's gotta be a trap.

Raphael: I hate it when he says that.

Donatello: Hang on, April! You wouldn't last five minutes in a Ninja pizzaria! I love saying lines like that.

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

Raphael: We're dealing with a real mind here.

Raphael: It's worth a try.
