    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (13)

      • Rachel: Look, Mr. Chapman is obviously an important controller, right? Melissa has a cat, I think I should acquire it and get into his house.
        Marco: While you're at it, get the answers to our finals.
        (Cassie looks incredulously at Marco.)
        Marco: What good is it if we defeat the Yeerks, and then can't get into college?

      • Rachel: I know I probably shouldn't have written that note. Jake would say it's too risky. Marco, would just think it was sappy. But Melissa's dad gave up everything to save her from becoming a controller. And even if she never knows the truth, at least she knows he loves her. Isn't that what we're really fighting for anyway? For the people we love. And that's why someday, we'll win.

      • Rachel: The guy in that picture is still you, and we're going to get him back. Inside your hawk's body, Tobias still exists. Don't ever forget that, okay?

      • Tobias: It's not so bad being a bird. No school, no homework, no curfew.

      • Jake: Well, what are friends for if they can't rescue you from evil space slugs?

      • Chapman: Chapman, my host, volunteered for infestation with one condition, that his daughter be left alone.
        Visser Three: What? You struck a deal with one of these primate lowlifes? We are Yeerks! Not used car salesmen! We do not negotiate with these creatures!

      • Visser Three: You're starting to bore me, Iniss 226, and let me tell you this, if you don't like me when I'm angry, you're going to hate me when I'm bored.

      • Visser Three: Your Andalite pride is as absurd as the shape you're in. Well, your two hour time limit must almost be up. You're no good to anyone as a cat. I shall wait one hour, then I'll have you destroyed. Slowly.

      • Visser Three: An inferior form, this Victor Trent. But the man's wealth and power makes him a useful tool.

      • Jake: For now we keep a low profile, okay?
        Marco: Real low profile. We're kickin' it talking to a hawk.

      • Rachel: I ran into Melissa this morning, she's different. Scared. Something's happened, I want to help her before her father turns her into one of them.
        Jake: If you get caught that's exactly what's gonna happen to you.

      • Rachel: My name is Rachel. My friend Tobias can usually change back and forth, from human to animal, like the rest of us. But this time he went over the two hour limit, and now he's trapped in the body of a hawk. We have to help him.

      • Tobias: (as a hawk) Back at the Yeerk pool... I guess getting away took more than two hours.
        Rachel: No. Tobias. Concentrate. Concentrate hard, you have to change back!
        Tobias: I've tried.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • "If you don't like me when I'm angry, you're going to hate me when I'm bored."

        Visser Three's line may be a reference to the classic Bruce Banner line from the Incredible Hulk series: "You won't like me when I'm angry."
