  • Funny Dale oriented episode

    I love the whole exchange in the beginning between Dale and Dtz when they first meet. Dtz is trying his darnest just to get away from Dale. While Dale goes on about harassing Dtz. Until Dtz plays his trump card and transforms into a Dragon thinking this will make Dale leave him alone. Only to have Dale ask Dtz if he's going to take over the planet. Because only Dale would see this as a good thing.

    But, also because it developed some character into Dale and helped Dale understand get a better picture of his role as a Rescue Ranger.moreless
  • When Dale discovers a runaway alien, the alien cons him into switching places with him. Back on the mother ship, Dale causes all sorts of havoc, as does his doppelganger back on Earth.moreless

    I have to admit, this was one of the best written of the entire series. The humor is amazing (especially the puns.)

    Some of my favorite quotes:

    Brac:(After accidently freezing Bric) I should just leave you in the Frozen Food Section on Upchuck 5!

    Dale: I wonder what this does?

    Computer: This is the artificial gravity control.

    Dale: Thanks (Presses Button).

    Computer: Artificial gravity is now 12 times Fleebledrox standard.

    And having a parody of \"Aliens\" is just genius! (and having AlienDale crack up and think it was a comedy was hilarious!) There is also the part where Dale\'s modifications to the Ranger Plane give Gadget a comet hairdo! \"Golly Again!

    Possibly one of the better episodes!

  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (11)

    • Dale: (seeing that Chip has mistaken Dtz for Dale) Hey, he thought you were me. And two Dales gotta be better than one.

    • Brak: (thinking Dale is Dtz) He's still in that alien form. This is very strange.
      Brik: Even for Dtz. We have to get him back to his Fleeblebroxian self.

    • (Dale is about to have a snack, but he doesn't know what to do with these weird kitchen utensils. Brik and Brak arrive with a dish).
      Brik: Here you go, Dtz.
      Brak: The best snack in the universe.
      Brik and Brak: (opening the lid) Irkburgles!

      Dale: Blech! Are you guys crazy or something? Don't you have any hot dogs?
      Brik and Brak: (Gasp)
      Brik: It's terrible. He's becoming an... an Earthling!
      Brak: We must rush him back to Fleeblebrox for treatment.
      Brik: Yes, we must!
      (Dale pokes at one of the green aliens and freaks out)
      Brak: I'm sorry it has to come to this Dtz, (taking a freeze gun out of his chef hat) but we have to freeze you before you get worse.

    • Dale: Hey, maybe you can be a Rescue Ranger.
      Dtz: What's a Rescue Ranger?
      Dale: Why that's me.
      Dtz: Neato! (transforms from a dragon and into Dale and he and the real Dale fall to the floor)
      Dale: (notices Dtz's transformation and laughs) Golly! You look just like me.

    • (Dtz transformed as a Dragon is holding Dale and roaring at Dale, once Dtz finishes Dale speaks)
      Dale: Wow, just like in the movies. Are you going to take over our planet? Are You?, Are You?, Are You?
      Dtz: Gee, no, I just want to stay here and have fun!

    • (Dale uncovers a dish of irkburgles, which causes a disguised Ditz to beginning drooling over)
      Chip: What is that stuff?
      Ditz:(As he changes back into his true form) Irkburgles!
      (He leaps on the dish, which Dale slams the cover back on while Ditz is eating the irkburgles)
      Monty: Eh, disgusting the way some people lose control.

    • Ditz (As Dale): (Chortles.) I love Comedies! (Laughing Rauciously.) I'll go make some popcorn.

    • Dale: Beam me up, Scotty.

    • Computer Voice:Space Pod Room.
      Computer Voice:You're Welcome.

    • Brak: Show yourself Immediately Dtz, or We will atomize this planet to tiny bits, because we know it's your favorite thing.
      Monty: (Gulps) We're a mite partial to it, too.
      Dtz: Don't worry Dale; They're bluffing!
      Gadget: Wait a Minute! You can't blow up this planet or You'll blow up too!
      (Brik and Brak look at each other, laugh, inflate themselves until they explode, then reform)
      Brak: We're made of unstable molecules!
      Brik: We like blowing up.
      Dtz: Maybe they're not bluffing

    • Bric: Set course for Upchuck 5!
      Brak: Why there?
      Bric: I promised the wife I'd pick some things up at the market on the way home.
      Brak: My Protounit told me there'd be days like these.

  • NOTES (3)

    • The amount of time the Rangerplane took to circle the world after Ditz's modifications suggest that it was going faster than 15,000mph! The resulting effect on Gadget's hair indicates cartoon physics as breaking the sound barrier without protection from drag is potentially fatal.
