  • Quotes

    • (Shredder, Krang, Bebop, and Rocksteady are forced to escape on a pickup truck.)
      Shredder: No Technodrome, no Rock Warriors, no Foot Soldiers! I'll pay those turtles back for this if it's the last thing I ever do!
      Krang: At this rate, it probably will be the last thing you ever do!

    • (When Weazel's ship lands, the slave master, Vorx, examines the Turtles.)
      Vorx: Well, well, Weazel, what have you brought me this time?
      (Vorx knocks on Michelangelo back.)
      Vorx: Hmm. Strong. Fit. Durable.
      Raphael: Get your mitts off him, you slime bag!
      Vorx: (Cracks whip at Raphael) Look here, Mr. Creature. Here, you do not talk back. You do not even speak! You either work...or be destroyed.

    • (The Turtles arrive at the beach, and a tidal wave appears.)
      Raphael: What is it? Is it a tidal wave?
      (The Technodrome appears and rolls toward urban Manhattan.)
      Donatello: No, it's the Technodrome!
      Michelangelo: That thing will roll over the city if we don't stop it!!!
      Raphael: Relax, guys, we should know the drill by now.
      Everyone: (In unison) We break into the Technodrome. Fight our way past the Foot Soldiers. Disconnect the power device and escape with it.

    • Splinter: I fear that by taking on Shredder, you four have stumbled into the greatest danger you have ever faced.
      Raphael: But, Sensei, were not in any danger.
      Splinter: The danger is not now. It is yet to come, Raphael.
      Raphael: (Sarcastically) Gee. I feel better already.
      Michelangelo: (Turns on TV) Let's see if we made the news, dudes.
      News Reporter: Our top story -- the Regenerative Power Cell, the world's most compact source of energy. It was to be used for a new space shuttle at the Space Center, just outside of town. It was stolen by an alien-brain and a group of skilled ninjas dressed in blue.
      Leonardo: That sounds like Krang and the Foot Soldiers!
      Raphael: I hate to say it, but I think we just fell for the old Double Jeopardy trick.
      Donatello: You're right. Why else would Shredder pull that robbery on live TV?
      Michaelangelo: To keep us busy while the Krangster was stealing that power thingy!
      Raphael: But what do they want it for?
      (Early Warning Alarm System blares)
      Donatello: It's coming from offshore. It's like a giant tidal wave.

    • Raphael: I gotta tell you, this whole thing is starting to get old hat.
      (A group of restraints falls on the Turtles)
      Shredder: Except one thing -- this time, we were ready.
      Rocksteady: Stinking shellbacks!
      Michaelangelo: (As they are taken to the Transdimensional portal) Dudes, we are in deep trouble.
      (Bebop nods)
      Krang: (On a visual communicator) Shredder, we've done it! The city is ours!
      Shredder: And now for the crowning touch. I'll finally be rid of you Turtles forever...by sending you into Dimension X!!!
      (Bebop and Rocksteady throw the Turtles into Dimension X)
      Shredder: At last, the Turtles are gone... FOREVER!
