  • QUOTES (11)

    • Heffer: Spunky, want a Fatheads brand chewable vitamin cheese?
      Spunky: (gestures yes)
      Heffer: Okay, sit up. Play dead. Okay, bend the spoon with your thoughts. Good boy!

    • Rocko: Ahhhh! (Gulp)
      Heffer: Hey.
      Rocko: Heffer, what are you doing here?
      Heffer: I've been watching you sleep, you're weird.
      Rocko: I'm weird?

    • Countryman: Flem Rock? Well... first you gotta go back 5 or 10 Miles till you get to big purple shed with Rufus painted on the side. You take the dirt road just past that shed. Don't go to far, just a little bit past it. If you see another shed with Chaka Khan painted on the side then you've gone too far...

    • (after Flem Rock's last eruption)
      Heffer: It's more glorious then I ever imagined!
      (suddenly a steamroller drives over Flem Rock, demolishing it)
      Construction Worker
      : Sorry, folks. Show's over.
      (suddenly a crane drives into view with a Chokey Chicken restaurant on the hook, dropping the Chokey Chicken onto the now empty area)

      : Look, Rock. A Chokey Chicken. And I'm starved!

    • Doc: So he ate a Fatheads Chewable Cheese Tablet huh? He's gonna explode you know. (sips his cup of coffee)

    • Biker: Fix the wallaby's weenie.

    • Heffer: (pointing to a rabbit in Rocko's thought bubble) Who's that?

    • (removed "Road Rash" scene)
      Motel Manger: Sorry, we full up. Won't have room for (looks at watch) another 20 minutes. You wait?
      (light goes off)
      Oh, we have premature departure. You can have room now. How long you want?
      Rocko: Just 'till tomorrow.
      Manager: All night? (whistles) Okay.
      Heffer: (asleep, to Rocko) Shelia?
      Rocko: HEFFER!

    • Heffer: I'm starving. What's the biggest thing on the menu?
      Cashier: That would be our Knockwurst Nightmare Platter. 570 pounds of ground pig parts packed tightly but tantalizingly into over two miles of intestinal tubing. No one has ever finished the nightmare platter.
      Heffer: I'll take two!
      Cashier: There aren't enough pigs in the country, sir.
      Heffer: Mmmmm, how about one and a side of fries?

    • Parasite: (licks the vitamin) Mmm . . . citrus. (explodes)

    • Filburt: Is she going to be okay, Doc?
      Doc: Well, I don't know how to tell you this Mr. Filburt . . . that's not a she, that's a loaf of bread!
      Filburt: No, she moved yesterday . . . I saw her! (whispers to the bread) Don't listen to him, Margaret!

  • NOTES (4)

    • While taking the shortcut, Rocko and Heffer pass by the pyramids (Egypt), the Stonehedge (England), the canals of Venice (Italy), Moai statues (Easter Island, Chile), the Eiffel Tower (France), Hell, and eventually the Taj Mahal (India).

    • Farmer: I remember takin' that road with my friend, Ferb.

      The first time out of many that the name "Ferb" is used on Rocko's Modern Life.

    • The scene cut in "Road Rash" had Rocko and Heffer stop for a night at the No-Tell Motel, and manage to get a room thanks to premature departure.

    • In "Road Rash" when the bikers fix the weenie mobile the phrase "retorqued your johnson rods" was taken out and replaced with "retorqued your curtain rods."
