Gwen: I know, it must have been some elves who made all this. I always knew this place was a bit magical.
Johnny: Yeah, magical.
Basil: (singing) You're forgetting some important things
Ginger: Like what?
Basil: Like humans don't have wings.
Ginger: Oh, that's true.
Lily: But you never know what you can do until you try out something new.

Gwen: Oh ho ho! Wow! Super snowpeople!
Johnny: Oh, well, thanks. I'm going for the, uh, international snowperson-building competition.
Basil: Well, looks like we won't be able to get back to Grotto's Grove today. We're stuck here with Johnny.
Ginger: Hot chocolate, here we come!
Johnny: Hey, Lily, your snow sprite looks absolutely beautiful. I love her hair.
Lily: Oh, thank you, Johnny.
Basil: (singing) We're searching and skittering
Basil and Root: To find stuff that's glittering
Sprites: To make the very prettiest present we could bring / Brightly shining, shining brightly, leaves and flowers everywhere / Sprites must give a gift that's spritely / One that shows how much we care.
Johnny: (singing) Yearly, I climb a shaky ladder / Nearly, collapsing in a heap / I'm scaling these heights again / And nailing these lights again / My house a tradition / I want for it to keep.
Gwen: I'm off to help you-know-who.
Gwen: You know, the big jolly guy.
Johnny: No way!
Johnny: (whispers) You're helping Santa Claus?
Gwen: You didn't hear it from me.
Johnny: That is so cool.
Johnny: Seymour, you ate my popcorn.
Seymour: Excellent kernel poppage. But next time, more butter please.
Johnny: Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Christmas. If there's celebrating to be done, I'm there.
