    • Urien: Who dares intrude?
      forever Knight: It's Ben Tennyson, the alien changeling, and his lackey.
      Kevin: Oh, now I'm a lackey?
      Humoungousaur: I'm sure he didn't mean to hurt your feelings. You didn't mean to hurt his feelings, right?

    • Girl: I'm your biggest fan!
      Immature Ben: Well, that makes two of us.

    • Reporter: Ben, any comment on Will Harangue's editorials? He says you're a menace!
      Immature Ben: Yeah? I say TV's a dead medium. Sorry man, you know it's true!

    • Gwen: Where have you been? Julie's match is about to start.
      Immature Ben: I'm here. Why don't you put a sock in it?
      Gwen: Whoa. What's with all the attitude?
      Immature Ben: I'm Ben classic. Miss me?

    • Gwen: What are you doing?
      Ben: I was thinking that while we're waiting around, I could go and catch "Sumo Slammers: The Movie".
      Kevin: You're either the bravest man alive, or the dumbest.
      Ben: What?
      Kevin: Okay, the dumbest.

    • Gwen: The finals are in three hours. That should give you enough time to figure out how to make this up to (Julie).
      Ben: Any suggestions?
      Kevin: Yeah, there's a plan: Ask me for girlfriend advice.

    • Kevin: If I weren't running for my life, I'd totally demand an explanation.(indicating the 3 Bens)

    • Ben: Go Julie! WHOO HOO! Julie Yamamoto is number 1, baby! HOO! HOO! HOO!
      (Gwen pulls Ben down)
      Ben: What?
      Gwen: You're embarrassing her!
      Ben: She loves the attention.
      Gwen: No, she doesn't.
      (Julie looks down)
      Ben: My bad...
      (Gwen looks back at the match)
      Ben: Hey, other girl! You're a terrible tennis player and my girlfriend's gonna kick your butt!
      (Julie looks shocked and the other girl looks mad)

    • Forever Knight #1: (aiming tank cannon at museum door) This will rip that door open like it was made of tissue paper.
      Rath: (rips open the top of the tank) Let me tell you something, Forever Knights! Nobody's ripping open nothing except Rath!

    • (Forever Knight shoots at Rath)
      Rath: That's your first mistake! When you shoot Rath, it just makes Rath mad! (growls)

    • Ben Tennyson: Nice game, Julie.
      Julie Yamamoto: How would you know? (walks away)
      Ben Tennyson: What? What did I say?
      Gwen Tennyson: It's what you did, Ben. You were late, and when you finally showed up, you made a big entrance and completely blew her concentration.
      Ben Tennyson: I can't help if I'm famous, right? (waves to the crowd; Gwen glares at him) ...I'm sorry. It won't happen again.
      Gwen Tennyson: It better not. The finals are in 3 hours. That should be enough time for you to figure out how to make this up to her.
      Ben Tennyson: (to Kevin) Any suggestions?
      Kevin Levin: Yeah, there's a plan - ask me for girlfriend advice.

    • Gwen Tennyson: What are you doing?
      Ben Tennyson: I was thinking that while we were waiting around, I could go and catch "Sumo Slammers: The Movie."
      Kevin Levin: You're either the bravest man alive or the dumbest.
      Ben Tennyson: What?
      Kevin Levin: Okay, the dumbest.

    • Ben Tennyson: (about the Sumo Slammers movie) It's opening today, and there's a 2:00 PM show just a few blocks--
      Gwen Tennyson: No.
      Ben Tennyson: But it's "Sumo Slammers" - in 3D!
      Gwen Tennyson: Ben.
      Ben Tennyson: It's their first live-action movie. Everybody knows live-action is better than cartoons.

    • Gwen Tennyson: Where have you been? Julie's match is about to start.
      Ben Tennyson #3: I'm here. Why don't you put a sock in it?
      Gwen Tennyson: Whoa. What's with all the attitude?
      Ben Tennyson #3: I'm Ben classic. Miss me?

    • Ben Tennyson #2: Hello, Kevin. Hope I didn't keep you waiting.
      Kevin Levin: Didn't I just see you with Gwen?
      Ben Tennyson #2: I guess so. Didn't you want to investigate the Forever Knights robbery?
      Kevin Levin: Yeah, but Gwen's pretty mad at you. You better--
      Ben Tennyson #2: Gwen might seem inflexible, but her heart is as big as all outdoors. She'll forgive my transgression.
      Kevin Levin: Gwen will forgive you? Gwen Tennyson?

    • Ben Tennyson #3: Go, Julie! Whoo-hoo! Julie Yamamoto is number 1, baby! (cheers)
      (Gwen pulls him back to his seat)
      Ben Tennyson #3: What?
      Gwen Tennyson: You're embarrassing her.
      Ben Tennyson #3: She loves the attention.
      Gwen Tennyson: No, she doesn't.
      Ben Tennyson #3: My bad. (stands up again and shouts at Julie's tennis opponent) Hey, other girl! You're a terrible tennis player, and my girlfriend's gonna kick your butt!

    • Tennis Referee: What's happening up there?
      Julie Yamamoto: Uh, that's my... boyfriend.
      Tennis Referee: (monotonously) You must be very proud.

    • News Reporter: Ben, any comment on Will Harangue's editorials? He says you're a menace.
      Ben Tennyson #3: Yeah? I say TV is a dead medium. Sorry, man. You know it's true.

    • Girl: I'm your biggest fan!
      Ben Tennyson #3: Well, that makes two of us.
      Girl: Is that really your girlfriend on the court?
      Ben Tennyson #3: Hey, things cha-- (Gwen hits him with a magic beam) Ow! What? I'm just having fun.

    • Ben Tennyson #2: I'm just thinking about how long we've known each other.
      Kevin Levin: Why?
      Ben Tennyson #2: Because I don't think we've ever honestly talked about our feelings, about how we're friends now, but we were enemies - which is understandable, what with you being criminally insane back then and all.
      Kevin Levin: I talk about my feelings all the time, like when I'm mad or hungry or when I have to go to the bathroom.

    • Kevin Levin: Ben! You've always been kinda girly, but today...
      Ben Tennyson #2: Yeah?
      Kevin Levin: You're creeping me out!
      Ben Tennyson #2: I understand. I'm truly sorry.
      Kevin Levin: Stop understanding, stop apologizing, stop talking about your feelings. I just want to find some Forever Knights and pound them.
      Ben Tennyson #2: Hmm, interesting.
      Kevin Levin: Cut that out!

    • (Ben transforms into Humungousaur)
      Humungousaur: (singing) Humungousaur!
      Kevin Levin: Never do that again.
      Humungousaur: Just trying it out.

    • King Urien: Who dares intrude?
      Forever Knight #1: It's Ben Tennyson, the alien changeling, and his lackey.
      Kevin Levin: Oh, now I'm a lackey?
      Humungousaur: I'm sure he didn't mean to hurt your feelings. (to Forever Knights) You didn't mean to hurt his feelings, right?
      King Urien: Destroy them!

    • Kevin Levin: Ben, do something!
      Humungousaur: Why me?
      Kevin Levin: Because you're a giant, indestructible dinosaur?
      Humungousaur: Okay, but shouldn't we work towards a consensus that let's us both feel invested in the plan?

    • King Urien: It's mine! After all this time, it's mine!
      Ben Tennyson #2: Excuse me, sir, but the signs clearly say "Do Not Touch the Exhibits."
      Kevin Levin: Signs? That's the best you got? Where's the usual smack talk? First, we crack on the back guys and then we trash them. It's what we do!
      Ben Tennyson #2: That's bad sportsmanship. We should respect the ego space of our opponents. Villains are people, too.

    • King Urien: This is Toltech battle armor, a little parting gift left with the Aztecs by a race of aliens.
      Ben Tennyson #2: There were aliens in Central America?
      Kevin Levin: They came for the scenery, but they stayed for the chocolate.

    • Kevin Levin: (sees 3 Bens standing next to each other) If I wasn't running for my life, I'd totally demand an explanation!
      Ben Tennyson #1: "Sumo Slammers" opened today, and...
      Ben Tennyson #2: We were trying to be sensitive to everyone's needs.
      Ben Tennyson #3: What's it to you?!
      Kevin Levin: Again, running for my life!

    • Rath: (To two old men after throwing a tank into a pond) What?! It was already busted!

    • Forever Knight: This will rip that door open like it was made of tissue paper!
      Rath: (After ripping off the roof of the Forever Knights' tank) Let me tell you something, Forever Knights, nobody's rippin' off nothing except Rath.

    • Ben Tennyson: (After obliterating the Forever Knight's armor into pieces) Rest in pieces!

    • Ben Tennyson: There were aliens in Central America?
      Kevin Levin: They came for the scenery, but they stayed for the chocolate.

  • Notes

    • Ben's statement that "Everyone knows live-action is better then cartoons." is a sly reference to the fact that the live-action Ben 10 movies weren't as well-received as the animated series.

    • In retrospect, the sensitive Ben should have been with Julie while the hardcore Ben should have been with Kevin. If this was the case, the episode could have gone off without a hitch.

  • Allusions

    • Episode: Plot

      The plot of this episode is similar to that of Multiplicity, about a man who has himself cloned with disastrous results.

    • Fastball Special
      The way in which Humungousaur throws Kevin at the heavily armored Forever Knight is a technique known in the comic book realm as the fastball special. Colossus and Wolverine, two superheroes from "Marvel" comics, were the first to use this move.

    • The subplot about Ben and Julie going through relationship issues is similar to Turk and Carla's relationship issues in the Scrubs episode "My Life in Four Cameras".
