Bounce: ¡Adios! Sayanora! Uh, what's the other one? Arrivaderci!
Bounce: Cookie! Careful of the blue jay!
Miss Spider: Cookie's fun now. Bird's don't eat bugs that eat lots of milkweed.
Dragon: Really? I'm going to eat lots of milkweed then. (He takes a big bite of a milkweed leaf.) Blech. I'd rather be bird bait.
Squirt: Cookie must have figured we didn't want her around anymore.
Dragon: We are supposed to be good to bugs.
Bounce: All bugs.
Squirt: Cookie is kinda fun an icky way.
Wiggle: Ah, Cookie ate my lunch. Again.
Squirt: What else is new?
Miss Spider: Cookie's a bit of a handful.
Holley: Yeah. Eight handfuls.
Miss Spider: Did you know she cant eat her weight in food every day?
Squirt: Whoa! That's a lot of bug grub.
Cookie: Bug grub! More more more!
Holley: Cookie chomped my slippers. All eight of them.
Holley: (regarding Cookie the caterpillar) Once she's big and strong enough, she'll make a chrysalis.
Dragon: "Chrysamas?" But it's summertime!
Shimmer: Honeysuckle Harvest is my favorite time of the whole year.
Squirt: (playfully amused) Don't eat it all!
Miss Spider: Dragon was right. There's so much we can't teach him, Holley. I know he belongs with us, but he needs to follow his heart. He belongs with dragonflies.
Holley: Hmm, I knew this day would come. I just never thought it would be so soon.
Dragon: We became
Dragon and Bounce: best bug buddies for life.
Dragon: Miss Spider and Holley adopted us.
Bounce: They are our Mom and Dad.
Miss Spider: And you're our kids. We're a big happy bug family. Mmmm.
Rocky: Dragonflies are made for flying. It's what we do best. We can fly forwards, backwards, up and down. We can even make right-angle turns.
Rocky: An ace always keeps his wing gear in tip-top shape.
Rocky: Come fly and get a taste of the sky!
Pillbug: I don't wanna taste the sky! I don't wanna taste the sky!
Beetrice: Look out! Hip hip hooray! The Flying Aces are back in Sunny Patch!
