      Numbuh 2: (happily) Yes, sir!?
      Numbuh 1: Steer the ship. We're about to hit a mountain.
      Numbuh 2 (runs to controls): AHHHHHH!

    • Numbuh 1: (to #3) "YES! Thank you for the memories! Now, if you don't mind, I'd like to talk about something other than...cake?" (stopping at the sight of the movie set)(angrily) "You...Kids Next Door, battle stat-Ah!" (captured by green fire)
      Father: "No, no, no! CUT! You Kids Next Door are not in my script! Ugh! On the other hand, you might just be what this picture needs."
      Numbuh 1: "Father. What are you doing in our treehouse?"
      Father: "I'm merely getting in touch with my more artistic side to create the mega-blockbuster smash of the century!"
      Delightful Children: "...And we're the stars! It's called, 'Let Us Eat Cake'! Just think, soon jealous kids all over the world will see us enjoying our delicious cake on the big screen! And what better backdrop to savor it in than your stupid treehouse!" (laughing)
      Numbuh 4: "Oh, man! It ain't gonna be one of those chick flicks, is it?"
      Father: "ENOUGH! We must film before the muse escapes me." (ushering in the Delightful Children) "Okay, my stars. In this scene, you will unveil the cake. I wanna feel the passion, between you and its scrumdillyumminess. The electricity! THE LOVE!!! ...Quiet on the set! Annnnd...action!

    • Numbuh 5: Look at you. Best operative on the planet. And to think, I had to convince you not to quit this morning.
      Numbuh 1: If it wasn't for you, I wouldn't be in the Kids Next Door in the first place.
      Numbuh 5: Oh please. They woulda found you eventually. I mean…these guys did. (pause) Look, are you sure you wanna do this? You don't hafta go.
      Numbuh 1: You know I can't pass this up, Abby. You're only a kid once, right? (takes off sunglasses) So this means you're in charge of Sector V again.
      Numbuh 5: (backs away) No, no no, nuh uh uh uh uh uh!
      Numbuh 1: I'm not giving you a choice this time. Who else is gonna take care of the guys?
      Numbuh 5: But - !
      Numbuh 1: Abby, we both know you're the only one on this team with any real common sense. While I'm screaming that we're being invaded by tiny, kid-eating leeches falling from the sky, you're the one telling me it's only snowing. You were a way better leader than I ever was. (gives her sunglasses) So lead Sector V.
      Numbuh 5: But…it won't be Sector V...without you.
      Numbuh 1: It was before, and it will be after.

    • Numbuh 1: Alright guys listen up, even if we never see each other again just promise me one thing, that you'll never grow up. Even if you're 100 years old and don't remember a thing about our times together, you'll still be a kid at heart, ok?

    • Adult Hoagie: While I learned my lesson about stealing from nerds a long time ago, it appears Stickybeard hasn't.

    • Interviewer: (about the DCFDTL) So they got away?
      Adult Hoagie: You'd have to be PLANE crazy to think so! (laughs) Get it? PLANE crazy, they escaped on a plane!

    • Numbuh 1: Kids Next Door!...Goodbye.

    • Numbuh 1: (talking about the Delightful Children after they fall into a giant toilet) I've always wondered how they went to the bathroom together.

    • Interviewer: So, what happened next?
      Adult Hoagie: Well. suffice it to say, Father wasn't happy finding us in his house.
      (Cut to flashback)
      Father: I am not happy finding you kids in my house!

  • Notes

    • On March 19, 2015 Tom Warburton attempted to get a sequel series started up, by revealing an animated short on YouTube. In it, the Galactic Kids Next Door would have been the main antagonist, having come to the conclusion to destroy all worlds too infected with Adulthood.

    • Near, Far....

      When the Delightful Children are sitting on the bow of their cruise ship talking about their cake, the way they hold out their arms is similar to the "I'm Flying" pose of Titanic fame.
