    • QUOTES (2)

      • (Pinky realizes something)
        Pinky: What happens when the real Napoleon shows up, Emperor Brain?
        Brain: A bit louder, Pinky. There's a truffle hunter outside Limoges who didn't quite hear you.
        Pinky: You mean Armand?
        Brain: Fear not, Pinky. This is not a detail I missed.
        (he pulls out a proclamation and unfurls it)
        Brain: This is a list of imperial decrees that I presented this morning. Buried among them is a decree banishing anyone over the height of eight inches from entering the country. By the time Napoleon arrives at the border, he won't be able to get in. Banished!
        Pinky: Genius, Emperor Brain!
        (he slaps Brain on the back and knocks him over)
        Brain: There are times, Pinky, that I question our friendship.

      • Pinky: Brain, where are you?
        Brain: I'm inside the crape suzzete.
        Pinky: Egad, Brain. Suit yourself
        Brain: The nutmeg, Pinky.
        Pinky: Right.
        (he grabs the nutmeg and sprinkles it on the crape)
        Brain: Don't add the nutmeg.
        Pinky: Don't?
        (the lab explodes)

      • Marlon Brando:

      • The title of this episode Napoleon Brainaparte is an allusion to the famous French general Napoleon Bonaparte.
