    • Lynda: You must've been born while I was out. Tiddler: Well, I'm always telling mum you don't pay any attention to me. Lynda: Who are you? Tiddler: Toni Tilledsley, but my friends call me Tiddler, 'cause I'm small and popular.

    • Lynda: Stage three. I don't want to know how you do it, but you get everyone on this list to behave. Spike: You leave it to the experts. Frazz. (Cut to Spike and Frazz bullying people in the school yard) Spike: Tony Robbins, 3C? Frazz: Raymond Smith, 3C? Spike: Eric Ashley, 3C? Frazz: When you get Mr Knowles for English tomorrow... Spike: ...on Thursday, you're gonna behave. Frazz: Like an angel... Spike: But you're gonna make it look like you're being a naughty little boy... Frazz: ...a bad little girl... Spike: But when Knowles tells you to do something, do it. Frazz: Or else. Spike: Or watch it. Frazz: Or you'll be going home in buckets.

    • Spike: Ping-pong balls?! Lynda: Half ping-pong balls! How many of them? Colin: Well, they make them in two halves, you see, and they always have a few defective ones left over... Lynda: How many? Colin: 100,000. Lynda: Are you telling me, Colin, that you have spent Gazette money on 100,000 defective half ping-pong balls? Colin: It was a bargain! Look, we get in on the ground floor here. It's an investment. It's a whole new concept in... Lynda: ...balls!
