  • Quotes

    • Muffy: Daddy, tell Prunella that painting is just a hobby and would never in a million years get you into Ivy University.
      Mr. Crosswire: I wouldn't know. I never went to college.

    • Prunella: (in dream sequence) No more! I can't carry it all!

    • Marina: What about volunteer work? If you're going to run around doing things you don't like, you might as well be helping someone.
      Prunella: That's a great idea.

    • Prunella: How to speak useful Czech. That sounds... useful. Now all I have to do is get my Mom to sign me up. This is going to be great.

    • Marina: You're only nine. You don't have to worry about college yet.
      Prunella: Easy for you to say. You get straight A's.

    • Muffy: When you really care about stuff, Prunella, you just find the time.

    • Prunella: There's a single exam that gets you into college?
      Muffy: If there is, Daddy must have gotten an A-plus. He went to Ivy University and that's the best college there is.
      Brain: The college exam isn't graded with a letter, Muffy. They're graded with numbers.
      Muffy: Oh. Then I guess he got a million.

    • Vicita: Now eat this, so Jaguar Man will teach you the ways of the jaguar and you'll never have to worry about being teased again.
      Vaica: I don't even really like mangos. Do you have any magic papayas?
      Raulito: Eat the mango!

    • D.W.: (in dream sequence) Vicita, come and have a mango. This place is kid heaven! No one ever sleeps here.
      Vicita: No. I need the sleeping mango tree. I have to get there before Vaica falls and hurts himself.

    • Buster: (in dreamy, hypnotic voice) You're getting sleepy. Very sleepy.
      Vicita: (matter-of-factly) No, I'm not.
      Buster: You aren't? (yawns) I am. Would you mind if I lay down?
      D.W.: Amateurs.

    • Arthur: There's one thing that never fails to put Buster to sleep --- homework.
