    • Mr. Frensky: If you win, I'm taking you out for ice cream. If you lose... Binky: You'll drive us to the outskirts of town and leave us there? Mr. Frensky: No Binky. If you lose, I still take you out for ice cream. Binky: I'll never get to see the outskirts of town.

    • Mr. Frensky: A good playing team deserves ice cream. Francine: Don't give an ice cream cone to Arthur, he'll just drop it. (Everyone laughs.) Buster: Cheer up Arthur. I'll hold onto your ice cream for you.

    • Francine: How about that fly ball that hit Arthur on the head? (Taps herself in the head with a ball and imitates Arthur.) Duh, where's the ball? Where's the ball? Where's the ball?

    • D.W.: I don't care if it takes until I'm 21 and I'm one giant scab. I'm gonna learn to do this.

    • D.W.: I am not too little! I don't want any help! I can learn this stuff myself!

    Notes (1)

    • The episode D.W. Rides Again! is based off the book of the same name. Though several elements are similar, the Bike-a-Thon was created for the TV adaption only, and the book ended with Dad accidentally crashing into a lake on his bike, much to the amusement of D.W.
