    • QUOTES (4)

      • Brain: Utilizing satellite technology and these alligator clips, we will redirect all global telephone communication into an endless voice mail system. Once a person is on the line, the array and the amount of choices will render them occupied, busy, and unable to defend the Earth for a full 72 hours. More than enough time for a well-prepared mouse to take over the planet!

      • Brain: You have a choice. You can listen closely and provide assistance or you can find your head inside a walnut shell.
        Pinky: Hmm, world domination. Walnut shell. World domination. (Brain puts his head inside a walnut shell) Or walnut shell?

      • Brain: Man has an evil side, Pinky.
