  • \\\"D.W the Picky Eater\\\" and \\\"Buster and the Daredevils\\\" were the episodes I saw on WNJB and WNET on the same day. I called it a double Arthur.

    • (Arthur and Buster are riding their bikes.) Buster: Well, looks like you're going to miss the boat. We tried everything. Arthur: Hey! (he and Buster stop their bikes.) Everything except Plan X. (leaves off while riding his bike) Buster: Oh, no! Not Plan X! What's Plan X?

    • Buster: Uh Binky, I have a message for you. Binky: What? Buster: Um, let me think... oh yeah, "your mother eats gym shorts!" Binky: What?! (Francine, Sue Ellen and Arthur gasp. Buster walks out of the Sugar Bowl, returning to Toby and Slink.) Buster: Whew! That wasn't so bad. (licks strawberry ice cream from face thrown by Binky) Mmmm, strawberry! (Toby and Slink laugh. Arthur looks at the window outside.) Arthur: Oh, Buster.

    • Arthur: Face it, you don't like anything. D.W.: I do too. Like peanut butter and jelly and strawberries and chocolate, but not with the nuts with it. And birthday cake and chocolate ice cream.

    • D.W.: (talking about all the foods she hates) And stinky cheese. I never thought there so many yucky foods out there. Like tapioca and lima beans and did I say spinach? Arthur: Yes.

    • Arthur: Uh-oh, she's gonna pop! D.W.: This is spinach. Waiter: Is something the matter? D.W.: This is spinach, and I hate... SPINACH!! (D.W.'s plate goes flying across the room into the waiter's face, and everyone stares.) D.W.: Uh-oh. Waiter: That's it! I quit! Mrs. Read: Dora Winifred Read!
