  • Quotes (7)

    • Donny: Get the doors open while I get the Shell Sub powered up. Mikey: The doors open? But would that flood the room? Donny: Dah. The Shell Sub doesn't float in the air Mikey. Now let's move it!

    • Donatello: They say the sea is the last unexplored frontier on Earth, and I would have to agree because what we're looking at is one of the strangest things I've ever seen. And that's saying a lot coming from five-foot tall talking turtle. What started out as a test run of the new Shell-Sub quickly turned into a discovery of bizarre proportions. Of course, all exploratory missions should be undertaken with great caution. If you venture into new territory unprepared, it can really come back to bite you in the shell.

    • Michelangelo: First mate Michelangelo, ready to launch, sir! AH-OOOGA! AH-OOOGA! DIVE, DIVE! Torpedoes away! (jumps into Shell Sub) Donatello: Mikey's my first mate. Wish me luck.

    • Mikey: Uh Don, what's that? (points at car) Donny: (in a little kid way) A car...

    • Michelangelo: (singing) Rule Britannia. Britannia rule the waves! I don't know the rest of this stupid song! All I know is Britannia... (is grabbed by Donatello) WHOA!!

    • Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope Michelangelo: (to Donatello) Aren't you a little short for a junk trooper? This is a reference to the line from Star Wars Episode IV. When Luke and Han show up to save Leia, she immediately says, "Aren't you a little short to be a storm trooper?"

    • The Bible Michelangelo: I feel like Jonah on this freak whale thingy. This is a reference to the biblical story in which God tested a man after he is swallowed by a large fish, which in modern times has been replaced by a whale.
