  • Quotes

    • Lydia: Don't you lie to your grandmother, Tommy!
      Numbuh 2: That's Hoagie! Tommy's my brother.

    • Numbuh 5: What's up with all the racket?!
      Cree: I caught your two little weirdo friends trying on my bras.
      Numbuh 5: What are you two doin' wearing my sister's bras?
      Numbuh 1: Numbuh 5, you don't understand. B.R.A. stands for Battle Ready Armor. It's a weapon!
      Numbuh 5: Are you crazy?!

    • Dr. Lincoln: They grow up so fast. It seems like only yesterday she was a little girl, and now look at her with her brand-new training bra.
      Cree (spits out the orange juice she was drinking, then starts beating on him): DAD!!! I hate you! How could you say that? And in front of two boys! You are so embarrassing! Hello, Dad! What will make you stop?

    • Dr. Lincoln: Aw, look! My oldest girl is telling her little sister about bras. (Numbuh 5 and Cree begin pounding on him to get him out of the room)

    • Numbuh 1: Battle Ready Armor, help.
      Cree: I said, take off my bra! (kicks Numbuh 1 to the ceiling and tosses him to the bed)
      Numbuh 1: Numbuh 2, I think I could really use some...
      (Cree grabs Numbuh 1 and tosses him aside)

    • Numbuh One: Imagine the adult's surprise when the Kids Next Door are wearing bras too!

    • Numbuh 1: So, do you feel anything?
      Numbuh 2: Yeah. (cut to him, wearing bra on his head) Stupid.
      Numbuh 1: I don't know. I feel kind of powerful.
      Cree (screaming after she turns on the lights): AHHHHH!!! ARE YOU CRAZY?!?!!
      Numbuh 1: What's the matter, teenager? Afraid we'll put your bras to better use?

    • Numbuh 2 (After they check in on Abby): Boy, she looks real sick.
      Numbuh 1: And in her condition, an enemy agent could easily sneak in and suck top secret Kids Next Door information out of her brain.
      Numbuh 2: NO! We have to guard her with our lives.
      Numbuh 1: We can't leave her side for a minute.
      Numbuh 2 (Agrees, but after setting up in a defensive position by the door): I'm hungry.
      Numbuh 1: Let's get some of Mr. Lincoln's cookies.
      Numbuh 2: All right!

    • Lydia: I thought we were using the long-lasting stuff! Sheesh! In my time, when we said it lasted two hours, guess what, we meant it lasted two hours! Now where did I put my jar? (Finds it) Ah! Anti-aging creme. HA, HA, HA!!! They haven't heard the last of...THE SENIOR CITIZENS SQUAD!!!

    • Numbuh 4: (Making fun of Numbuh 2) Hah, it's totally your fault! Hey everybody, who am I? Oh, I'm a pilot! I'm pressing the wrong button! I'm dumping the grossest flavor of pudding all over my friends!"
      Numbuh 3: Oh, oh, oh, I know, I know, I know! You're Numbuh 4!
      Numbuh 4: NO! Who am I pretending to be?!
      Numbuh 3: Oh! You're pretending to be dummy-head Numbuh 2!

    • Numbuh 5: What are you two doing wearing my sister's BRA!

    • Numbuh 2: Great news guys! I got to Grandma's and back in just two bowls!
      Numbuh 1 (in an angry voice): Does it Look like we want to save tapioca?! (Numbuh 3 shrieks as some of it drops on her)

    • Father: You have done well... my apprentice.
      Cree: (Removes mask) Thank you... Father.

    • Numbuh 1: We know you're wearing a BRA, and we're going to put a stop to it, if it's the last thing we do.
      Cree: (Storms off, muttering angrily) Stupid dad, with the big mouth and the embarrasing and the pulling it out for the neighbors!

  • Allusions

    • Numbuh 5's Father: Bill Cosby
      Numbuh 5's father voice sounds a lot like Bill Cosby the famous actor. Indeed the joke in this episode seems to be that Bill Cosby is Numbuh 5's father (I know it is impossible but it's a production joke) which is why his face is never shown.
