In ''The Going Banana Republics'', Brandy's bellybutton disappears several times while she's wearing her bathing suit.
Brandy: (asking Ed to go to the ball with her) Is that a "yes" or a "no"?
Ed: Well, it's neither a "yes" or a "no". It's-it's-it's both. It's a "yo". The balance between man and woman...
Whiskers: Uh, Brandy. This is gonna be a while.
Gaspar: I wanted to make you an offer.
Mr. Whiskers: Well, if it's about trying to switch long distance carriers, then forget it pal! We don't even have a phone!
Gaspar: (to the screen) I still can't believe I lost to that guy.
Brandy: (to Mr. Whiskers) You're like a kid brother, and going to a dance with your kid brother is no way to shine like a diamond.
Brandy: Thank you, Whiskers, you saved the ball!
Mr. Whiskers: I had to Brandy; it was your moment to shine.
Brandy: I did, but you're the one who shined.
Mr. Whiskers: Can you explain this to me again?
Brandy: It's the annual Harrington Family Ball; obviously I won't be able to attend the real one this year.
Brandy: I need a date for the Harrington Ball.
Ed: Yeah, and?
Brandy: I need you to be my date!
Ed: Oh my, Miss Brandy, what a forward offer you have presented me with!
Brandy: I know you don't understand this, but this is important to me. Please, just don't mess up.
Mr. Whiskers: Um, Ok, you can count on me.
Brandy: Oh my gosh, we're worse than Gaspar! What would a true leader do at a time like this! Oh, I know, blame somebody else! (she points to a small animal) Hey you, you're taking the fall, beat it!
(Mr. Whiskers wipes his nose, his snot sticks to his hands)
Brandy: Ew, gross!
Mr. Whiskers: I guess that is snot the right thing to do!
Monkey Reporter: What does Presidency for Whiskers mean to the jungle?
Gaspar: unending chaos, lizards riot up, 10,000 years of darkness and cheers.
Monkey Reporter: And if you're elected?
Gaspar: Pretty much the same thing, I just got a nicer smile.
Brandy: I'm the most desirable female in the jungle; I'll have a date within two swishes of my tail.
(Brandy begins swishing her tail around.
Mr. Whiskers: Shouldn't I be discussing the issues? Or at least know what they are?
Brandy: This is an election, let's stay away from the issues.
Brandy: I'm going to work on my tan!
Mr. Whiskers: I'm gonna try not to drown!
(Mr. Whiskers was doing the funky bunny, which is moving his butt in the air.)
Brandy: No, no! Stop, stop!
Mr. Whiskers: Too hot?
(Whiskers looks at sign that says "no swimming")
Mr. Whiskers: Doesn't that defeat the purpose?
Brandy: You're right...
(Brandy adds to the sign "except for chief advisor and invited guests")
Mr. Whiskers: Am I an invited guest?
Mr. Whiskers: So, does anyone else like pie?
Brandy: (talking about herself) Intriguing question: Can a girl shine like a diamond without a date?
(Brandy takes a few moments to think, then she speaks to Mr. Whiskers)
Brandy: No, probably not, you're a necessary evil.
Mr. Whiskers: Yay! Hurray for evil!
Brandy: Zip it!
Monkey Reporter: Mr. Whiskers, what is your background? (Whiskers looks and points at a bunch of trees.)
Mr. Whiskers: Trees... Lots of 'em...
