[Raphael and Michaelangelo are tied up back-to-back in chairs with a bomb next to them]
Raphael: We're Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! We oughta be able to escape from a cornball setup like this!
[Raphael notices Michaelangelo rocking side to side]
Raphael: What are you doing?
Michaelangelo: Well, I once saw this movie where this dude was tied up and he just kept rocking back and forth 'til he fell over.
Raphael: It's worth a try.
[Raphael rocks side to side with Michaelangelo and they soon fall over]
Raphael: Great! Then what did he do?
Michaelangelo: I dunno. I went into the kitchen for some popcorn.
Rocksteady: Ooooh yuck! It looks like what the water looks like after my bath!
Shredder: Hey. When was the last time THAT happened?
Rocksteady: Ooh what year is this?
Rocksteady: I think it's the year my bath is due!
Donatello: Boy, this guy's more into pizza than we are.
Raphael: Yeah. What's he gonna do next?
Raphael: Spray us with tomato sauce?
Raphael: [sprayed with tomato sauce] I had to ask.
Leonardo: [Turtle Tips on organic gardens] Even small gardens help to refurbish the soil.
Donatello: Yeah and these plants will help clean the air we breathe.
Raphael: And it makes great organic pizza, if you're into that kind of thing.
April O'Neil: Who ordered the tomato, asparagus and kiwi special?
Michaelangelo: Oh yuck. Dudes, if we're growing pizza toppings, how about organic marshmallows?
Krang: If I had hands I would cover my ears, if I had them!
Rocksteady: You sure this gonna give us them powers?
Shredder: Of course. Although you may have a little trouble getting a date on Saturday night.
Shredder: Forward march! YOUR LEFT/YOUR LEFT/Ya' left your wife and forty-eight kids!
April O'Neil: For some people, it's an improvement!
Rupert The Turtle: When that thing gets close to capacity... Kabloo-hoo-hoo-hooey!
[Raphael knocks down Bebop and Rocksteady during a fight]
Raphael: Ha! You idiots couldn't hit me with...
[we see Bebop and Rocksteady picking up]
Raphael: ...a big rubber tyre!
[Bebop and Rocksteady throw the tyre at Raphael and knock him down]
Raphael: Ever get that rundown feeling?
Shredder: Come along, you two.
Rocksteady: Oh, all we ever do is go up and down, up and down!
Krang: Sounds like the perfect job for a couple of yo-yos. I made a funny.
Raphael: [all the Turtles are tied up]
Raphael: C'mon, figure a way out of this.
Donatello: Are you kidding? Only the most skilled Ninja Master could get out these knots!
[Leonardo frees himself, then starts to cut Donatello loose]
Donatello: Oh, hi, Leonardo.
