    • Buster: Well that's it, we've lost for sure now. Might as well get something to eat.
      Francine: Eat? You just had six pies!
      Buster: I feel empty inside...

    • Muffy: (An unnamed rival student who looks like Muffy serves to Muffy in a game of Middle Ages tennis. It breaks easily through Muffy's racket) Huh?! This isn't a regulation tennis ball - it weighs a ton!
      Rival Student: It's what they played with in the 16th century, like this racket.
      Muffy: That piece of junk? It looks like it could have been used by Henry VIII.
      Rival Student: It was used by Henry V. He was my great-great-great-great-great-great-uncle.

    • Mr. Ratburn: Stick with your partner, and take notes on all the historical details. They'll be useful when we compete in the games.

      Buster: (Writing) Haggis, two for a dollar...What's haggis?
