    • Snarf: Old Snarf just gets better with age!

    • (After the soldier leaves Lion-O with his coat) Lion-O: Jaga says that there is always a benefit to be found in misfortune. Hard to see what benefit that poor devil got out of this, but at least I won't freeze.

    • Ro-Bear-Bill: [Queen Tartara] wants the bird to sing for her alone. Lion-O: Why, that's the most selfish thing I ever heard! Ro-Bear Bill: Yes. Isn't it sad? She never learned that the greatest pleasure comes from sharing.

    • Lion-O: He's getting a bit absent minded. Panthro: Well, he's not getting any younger. Lion-O: Snarf getting old. I never thought of that.
