Mrs. Joyce Griff
Mr. Griff: Stanley, you're never supposed to touch raccoons, ever. They're wild animals.
Stanley: Wild scavenger animals, dad.
Dennis: Although they aren't much appreciated, scavenger animals are very helpful. They clean the Earth of garbage.
Stanley: Why do raccoons like garbage so much?
Dennis: Raccoons are scavengers. A scavenger can eat almost anything, like nuts and berries... or something from garbage, or even something from underwater.
Elsie and Harry: (singing) Now we're going online to find out everything / We'll search the Internet for the answers it can bring.
Dennis: The real mystery is how you two always show up.
Stanley: I need your help gathering evidence.
Mrs. Griff: Gathering evidence?
Stanley: The garbage can got knocked over and there's a mystery pawprint right next to it, so I'm trying to learn everything I can about the pawprint.
Stanley: Don't worry. There isn't a mystery that can't be solved by detective Stanley.
Stanley: I'll retrace my steps to the last time I remember wearing my sneaker, just like elephants retrace their steps when they migrate.
Stanley: An elephant never forgets?
Dennis: Hmm. I've heard that saying, but I wonder if it's true. Do you think an elephant can really remember everything?
Stanley: Dennis, if you were a sneaker, where would you be?
Dennis: I don't know a thing about sneakers. I've got fins.
Stanley: Harry, have you seen my other sneaker?
Harry: Oh, I get it. A sneaker goes missing and everyone instantly thinks the dog did it. I'm innocent! By the way, if you see the elephant, don't tell him I'm here.
Mrs. Griff: We'd better go to the supermarket now, Stanley.
Stanley: But, Mom! Lionel's the one who finished the orange juice. Why doesn't he have to go to the supermarket?
Mrs. Griff: (wearing a tube like an elephant's nose) What's so bad about the supermarket?
Mrs. Griff: You don't think we'll have fun at the supermarket? (trumpets)
Stanley: Mom! You're silly!
Elsie: (concerned because Stanley has asked to see her paw) My paw? But Stanley, I didn't knock over the garbage.
Harry: Elsie, detective Stanley knows what he's doing.
Elsie: Well... alright.
Elsie: Knowing that kids tend to knock things over is not enough evidence to say that Stanley knocked over the garbage can.

Though the on-screen title display for the first story reads "Garbage Can Bandit," Dennis reads "The Garbage Can Bandit" out loud.
