  • Quotes

    • Leonardo: (cuts away robotic hands) There, fellas... you're free!
      Raphael: That's terrific - you cut our climbing ropes too.

    • Leonardo: What a horrible development!
      Raphael: Yeah, but what a great cliffhanger!

    • Donatello: Forget firepower. We'll use that. (points to phone booth)
      Raphael: You're too late, Donatello. Another superhero already owns the patent on telephone booths.

    • Michelangelo: (driving as theme music plays) Woah. Isn't this music excellent?

    • Splinter: I don't like this. I have a feeling you turtles may be in great danger.
      Raphael: Hey, we laugh at danger.
      Donatello: Sure - we're heroes in a half-shell. Remember the theme song?

    • Shredder: Krang, don't you see? When the others come to rescue their friend, they'll be captured too. And then, with all this machinery at my command, I shall be invincible!
      Donatello: What a cornball! Who writes that guy's dialogue anyway?
      [...] Listen to me Shredder. This insanity has gone on too long, and it's got to stop!
      April: And he complains about Shredder's corny dialogue?

    • Bebop: (on the communicator) Hey Boss, this is me callin'.. Bebop!
      Shredder: Really? And all the time, I thought it was Santa Claus!

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • When Donatello points out the phone booth, Raphael replies "You're too late Donatello, another superhero already holds the patent on telephone booths." This is a reference to Superman, who would famously employ a phone box to change into his costume.

    • Turtles,turtles everywhere is copying the famous saying:Water,water everywhere
