  • Quotes

    • Alexandra: Well, now that we're here, where are we?
      Alan: I don't know, but I bet nobody's ever been here before.
      Melody: Somebody's been here before, 'cause here are his shoes. (looks up and sees a Strangemoon guard) And look, he's still in them! (giggles)
      Guard: What are you doin' here?! This is the property of Dr. Strangemoon.
      Melody: Well, don't ask me. Ask that silly balloon. (giggles)

    • Josie: (to the Strangemoon guard) Uh, we're the Pussycats, sir, a musical group. And we were playing a gig in the balloon at the World Expo.
      Valerie: Until it flipped its moorings.
      Guard: Then I suggest you get back in your balloon and take off. For your own good!
      Alexandra: Listen, buster. Nobody orders me around. We'll leave when we're good and ready!
      Alexander: (carries her away) We're ready! We're ready!
      Melody: She's really very nice when you get to know her. (laughs and leaves)

    • Dr. Strangemoon: (looks out the window) A perfect day for the launch. (he then sees...) A BALLOON!
      Guard: It's nothin', Dr. Strangemoon.
      Dr. Strangemoon: What?!
      Guard: It was just a musical group from the expo who landed here accidentally.
      Dr. Strangemoon: You fool! They were probably sent here to spy on me! They must be stopped, or my plans could be ruined! SOUND THE ALARM!!

    • Alexandra: (hiding in Alan's clothing basket with him) Oh, Alan, isn't this romantic?
      Alan: Let me outta here! (he jumps out of his basket and hides in Alexander's)

    • Dr. Strangemoon: At last, my satellites are ready to be launched. Once in orbit, they will attract fiery comets, which will cause worldwide disasters, and I alone will control them.
      Guard: You'll be the most powerful man on Earth, Dr. Strangemoon.
      Dr. Strangemoon: Precisely. We launch tonight! (laughs evilly)

    • (In the capsule, Alexander, Alexandra, and Melody float inside, weightless)
      Melody: Whee! Look at me! I can float!
      Alexander: Hey! So can I! What's going on?
      Alexandra: Simple, simple! We're weightless in outer space!
      Alexander: Great! Now how are we gonna get back to Earth?
      Melody: Anybody got a ladder? (giggles)

    • Dr. Strangemoon: I must regain control of the capsule, or my plans will fail!
      Alan's voice: You will fail, Strangemoon!
      Guard: Doctor, look! (they notice Josie, Sebastian, and Alan disguised as space aliens)
      Dr. Strangemoon: Who are you?!
      Alan: (speaking robotic) We are from Mars. I am Tic, (points to Sebastian) this is Tac, (points to Josie) and this is Toe.
      Dr. Strangemoon: Tic?! Tac?! Toe?!
      Alan: Yes.
      Josie: Your capsule has broken the laws of space, and now you must be punished!
      Dr. Strangemoon: Punished?!
      Alan: Yes!

    • (The capsule spins around in space)
      Alexander: Help! Let me outta here!
      Alexandra: Will you pipe down so I can straighten this thing out?! Maybe this'll do it.
      (she pushes the handlebars up, which stablizes the capsule straight up, while still moving)
      Alexander: Hey! You did it, sis!
      Alexandra: Naturally. What did you expect?

    • (Alexandra tries pushing buttons on the control panel to try and bring the capsule back down)
      Alexandra: I gotta stop. I'll get us down.
      (suddenly, the controls blow a fuse, and the capsule goes out of control)
      Alexandra: YEOW!!!
      Melody: Help! Help!
      Alexander: Stop this crazy thing, Alexandra! I'M GETTIN' SEASICK!!!
      (Back on the island, Dr. Strangemoon notices the situation on the screen)
      Dr. Strangemoon: Impossible! Something's gone wrong!

    • (The space capsule stops and drops down to Earth, via Valerie's rewiring)
      Alexander: Now you've done it, Alexandra! We're gonna crash!!
      Alexandra: I didn't do anything. This thing is flying itself!
      Melody: Gee, it's pretty smart, isn't it? (giggles)

    • (After the Pussycats' gig in the final scene)
      Alexander: That was great, gals! And thanks to me, you'll probably be superstars.
      Alan: Well, I'm not a star, Josie. But you sure make me twinkle.
      Josie: (giggles flirtatiously) Oh, Alan.
      Alexandra: (disgusted) Oh, brother. How corny can ya get?!

    • (Alexandra and Sebastian are hung up on a big ceramic star)
      Alexandra: Somebody get me down! Do something, you dingalings!
      Melody: Wowee! She hitched her wagon to the biggest star of the whole expo. (laughs)
      Alan: Don't go away, Alexandra! We'll get ya down!
      Alexandra: Hurry up with that ladder, you beanbags!
      Alexander: (sets up the ladder) We're hurrying! We're hurrying!
      Alexandra: Oooh! That Josie ends up with Alan, and I just end up hung up with... Sebastian! (who licks her face)
      Alexandra: Yuck! (Sebastian licks her again)
