    • (The kids see a flower that looks just like the Marin Rose)
      Dragon: Let's pick it and bring it home to Mom.
      Shimmer: What?!
      Dragon: That's what the knights did in the story right?
      Shimmer: No. Don't you remember Dragon? If you pick the flower, it will die.
      Bounce: Shimmer's right. Shimmer's right.
      Squirt: Somebuggy better tell him that.
      (Points to Spiderus who's about to pick the flower)

    • King: I'm sending you on a quest.
      Knights: Huzzah!
      King: But I should warn you, it will be full of pitfalls and perils.
      Sir Bounce: Huzzah!
      Sir Squirt: Uh Sir Bounce, pitfalls and perils are dangerous stuff.
      Sir Bounce: They are? Can I take back my huzzah?

    • (The knights all burst into giggles)
      Royal Stinkster: Did I miss a joke or something?

    • Eddy: What are you doing, Spiderus?
      Spiderus: I'm stuck. Get me out this instant.
      Eddy: You just want us to go in there so you can try to eat us.
      Spiderus: If I could get my hands on you. But of course I can't, because I'm sinking in pine sap!

    • (Spiderus tries to get other bugs to help him get unstuck, but nobody will)
      Spiderus: Why won't anybuggy stop to help me?
      Squirt: Maybe because you're not so nice sometimes.
      Spiderus: Me? Not nice? When am I not nice?
      Squirt: When you tell bugs you're going to eat them and you scare them on purpose.
      Spiderus: Oh yes. That.

    • King: Fetch me this flower!
      Royal Stinkster: Well see, I'm not really a flower fetching kind of bug. I'm more of a funny bone tickler.

    • Squirt: Wow! This is enough honey for a whole year. Thanks, Spiderus.
      Spiderus: Yes, yes, and a similar sentiment to you, I suppose. Now scram, before I develop a taste for honey-covered dragonfly.
      Dragon: I'm outta here!

    • Kids: The amber treasure!
      Spiderus: My amber treasure! Mine! Mine! Mine!

    • Spiderus: Oh, drat. Pine sap. This is a bit of a sticky situation.

    • Squirt: Spiderus! Hi!
      Bounce: Are you looking for the amber treasure too?
      Spiderus: I am looking for something --- a tasty spider sandwich and a big bedbug buffet.

    • Miss Spider: Of course we can spare a bit of honey.
      Squirt: Mom! We don't have any honey to give them. I ate the last drop.
      Miss Spider: We still have one acorn-full left.
      Squirt: We do?
      Miss Spider: Mmm-hmm. But this is the last of it.
      Ned: Oh boy! Oh boy!
      Ted: Shh. Don't blow it.

    • King: Zounds. By sending you to pick the flower, I destroyed it. Oh, what a rogue and peasant spider am I. I have robbed the world of the last Marin Rose.

    • Shimmer: I know! How about a story about flowers?
      Squirt: Flowers? Ew.
      Shimmer: I want to hear the story of the Marin Rose and the Knights of the Round Toadstool.
      Dragon: Yeah. Knights and toadstools are almost as fun as dragons.
      Wiggle: Hmm. I like it so far.

  • Notes
