  • Quotes

    • Greg: (to Jack) I really am sorry that your mama left you for a puppet gigolo.

    • Dr. Abem Mitchell: Okay, now what are some of the common stereotypes humans have about puppets? Jimmy.
      Jimmy: Uh...well ya, all puppets love tartar sauce.
      (puppets get angry)
      Warren: That is a lie!
      Blah: Stupid
      Other puppet: What are you talking about?
      Jimmy: C'mon you guys, you know you love it.
      All puppets: Yeah. Okay. All right.

    • Dr. Aben Mitchell: Hi, I'm Dr. Aben Mitchell. To learn more about anti-puppetism in the workplace, please contact your local library or visit us on the web at www.antipuppetismisnolaughingmatter/

    • Greg: Well, what have you got against puppets?
      Jack: You love your momma, Greg?
      Greg: Uh, you're not gonna hurt her if I say yes, are you?

    • Dr. Aben Mitchell: OK. Now let's see. Um, Alison. OK, now, you be the puppet customer. Uh, who would like to be the, uh, waiter who abuses Alison?
      Everybody: Me! Me! Me! Me!

    • Dr. Aben Mitchell: But we must all learn to tolerate and even celebrate our differences. Whether you're flesh, fleece, purple, plaid or even Chinese.

    • Guy in Video: So, Fred, did you get that big promotion you deserve?
      Fred: No, they gave it to some stupid puppet, just because he was a puppet.
      Guy in Video: Which puppet did they give it to?
      Fred: I don't know. They all look alike.

    • Jimmy: Jack's never gonna find out.
      Greg: Yeah, well, if he does, I'm leaving you my foot for good luck.

    • Alison: You got to admit, Jack. It looks pretty similar.
      Jack: Oh, I get it. It's another damn puppet conspiracy, like covering up Oscar's mob ties. Come on. We all know who controls sanitation from Fifth Avenue to Sesame Street.

    • Gil: Greg the Bunny is a filthy stinking sock who should die, blah. You know, people, if you don't put your names on the bottom of the paper, I'm not gonna know who wrote 'em.
      Blah: That one was mine, blah.
      Gil: I was kidding. I know it's yours. We're all aware of your ridiculous verbal tic.
      Blah: Hey, blah me.

    • Alison: See? Anti-puppetism is an extremely sensitive issue, Gil. Especially now during Puppet History Month.
      Gil: Is it October already?

    • Alison: Can I have everyone's attention, please? We have a problem, and it could very easily turn into a situation.
      Jack: That's network lingo for, "I've got to cover my ass."
      Warren: Ho, not in that skirt, baby!

    • Warren: Yeah, well, I'm telling you, that second-rate P.B.S. hack doesn't even eat the cookies, OK? They just crumble up and fall right out of his mouth.
      Greg: Mmm, first sign of bulimia.
      Dottie: You know what I heard? I heard that Bert and Ernie are actually straight.

    • Greg: I have to go to the bathroom.
      Gil: Jimmy, why don't you go with him and make sure he doesn't fall in again.
      Jimmy: Yeah, that's exactly what I got my Ph.D. for.
      Gil: GED. Hey, I'm not some hot chick you're trying to impress at Bennigan's.

    • Greg: Why do seagulls fly over the sea?
      Dottie: Hmm. I don't know, Greg.
      Greg: Because if they flew over the bay, they'd be bagels!

  • Notes

    • In this show, five outtakes are shown during the closing credits: Greg doing meditation between takes; Dr. Aben Mitchell pondering his wedding ring and saying, "Oh, yeah, it must be marriage"; Dr. Aben Mitchell noticing his pupil fell off; Greg telling Jack, "You know, my dad ran off with a Southern woman... brutha!"; Dr. Aben Mitchell declaring, "Well, that came to a grinding halt."

    • This, "Dottie Heat" and "Rabbit Redux" are the only episodes in which Greg does not offer opening and closing narration. Perhaps they were lopped off.

    • Mark Bryan Wilson is credited as Mark Wilson.

    • Scheduled to air on August 18, 2002, and also fed over the wildfeed. It was replaced with a rerun of Grounded for Life.

  • Allusions

    • Dottie: I heard that Ernie and Bert are actually straight.

      Bert and Ernie are two muppets from Sesame Street who live together and have been rumored to be gay numerous times.

    • Greg: Hey, you want to hear my snowball song?

      During the first episode of Greg the Bunny, 'Welcome to Sweetknuckle Junction', Greg sings his snowball song.

    • Jack: It's another damn puppet conspiracy, like covering up Oscar's mob-ties.

      Yet another reference to the Sesame Street muppet Oscar.

    • Jack: They also refuse to work on Howdy Doody's birthday.

      A famous puppet by the name of Howdy Doody had his own show that lasted from the late forties to the early sixties.

    • "Sock Like Me" is a reference to the classic book "Black Like Me," which featured a white man who dressed up as a black man and shared his experiences, bringing some understanding between races.
