  • Quotes

    • He-Man: Today we met Nepthu, a man who wanted to become a leader and became one. But Nepthu used his leadership for his own selfish glory and in the end he got what he deserved. Being a good leader takes a lot of responsibility, but you must also be responsible when you follow a leader. Don't do something wrong or dangerous because someone tells you to. Think before you act. We can't all be leaders, but we can all choose what's right and wrong for ourselves.

    • Cringer: (just before being transformed into Battlecat) Wait a minute!
      He-Man: I know you don't enjoy this, old cat, but we do have a quest.
      Cringer: I know, but every time I turn into that Battlecat, you get me into some kind of trouble! I'll make a deal with you. I'll go with you, but as Cringer! Maybe I can bring some common sense to this quest!
      He-Man: Alright, my feline friend. But when you change your mind, be sure to let me know.
      Cringer: Fat Chance!!!
