He's honest and very hard working and only wants what's best for the world. But he gets no reward. He's only greeted with defeat. He never gives up, but I know it must be very hard. So please, take anything that you have for me and give it to my best friend in the whole world, the Brain. Love Pinky. P.S. by any chance do you have in that big old bag of your's the world.

    • Brain: Then we will send our message to the world!
      Pinky: Impersonate Regis Philbin. Egad, chaos!

      Brain: What would you rather be?
      Pinky: A dentist.
      Brain: You've seen too many Christmas specials, Pinky.

    • Brain: Hm, for some reason, the idea of joining the Donner party is unappealing.

      The Donner Party was an ill-fated group of American pioneers moving westward in the mid-19th century. During the winter of 1846-47, they were unable to cross the Sierra Nevada. Consequently, nearly half of their party died, and some of the remaining party members resorted to eating their dead to survive.
