      Billy: That's the spirit! See ya around, Jennifer Lopezio!

    • Captain Deadwood: They call me, Captain Deadwood the Heartless! ARR! But don't let them name fool ya, I'm not a real captain.

    • Gepetto: See, I never had a real boy as a son. So, I have to bulid one to fulfill my own selfish, desire to be a father. Anyway, that's why I have to partend with a lifeless piece of wood, cannot turn my love.
      Billy: Wow! That's pretty pathetic if I may say so, Cheppity-deck-jiggy-withit-o.

    • Gepetto: My name is Gepetto. I carved Pinnochio from wood. But you're not like Pinnocio, are you?
      Billy: Well, I'm not a cannibal!
      Pinnochio: Hey! I'm not a cannibal either! (nose gets bigger)

    • Grim: What's wrong with Billy? Ooh, I hope it's a barracuda attack!
      (a whale eats Billy and splashes water all over Grim and Mandy with fish)
      Grim: Or a whale attack; that works, too.

    • Billy: Aagh, argh! Stupid stomach cramp! Ugh, uh, I shouldn't have gone swimming after I just ate!
      Ziggy the Crab: (inside Billy's stomach) Serves you right, mon!

    • Billy: Hey! I know yous! You're Pin...erich...eeo...chio-jigio!
      Pinocchio: (gasps) Billy, is that really you? Can I eat your flesh, so I can become a real boy?
      Billy: Not today. I need my flesh to hold my doggy-air.

    • Ziggy the Crab: Billy, mon! We've been waiting for ya! Welcome to the sea, where everyone is free! But don't you ever think about escapin', because under the ocean!

      (singing) Under the ocean,
      Where everything's wetta,
      And it sure meets the ghetta!
      So try to behave,
      Or you'll rot in the grave,
      Of water and salt.
      And it'll all be your fault!
      So take it from me,
      Your crustacean M.C.,
      Don't drink the water,
      'Cuz it's full of fish pee.
      So don't bring no drama,
      Leave that for your momma,
      Chillin' in the bahamas,
      Riding a llama.
      Sweatin' in a sauna,
      While eating a banana...
      Billy: Nah, I don't wanna. (eats Ziggy)

    • Mandy: That whale that ate Billy has got to be out there somewhere. See anything, Grim? Grim?
      Grim: (puking) BLARGH!!
      Mandy: Yeah, you're probably right. We should give up looking.
      Grim: (puking) BLAAAARRRGGGH!!
      Mandy: But then again, we do need him to carry our beach junk back in the car. (Grim pukes again) Me carry it? Are you crazy? (Grim continues puking) You got a point there. But still, we got to find this whale.

    • Billy: Hi, Uncle Chokey! You want to juggle chickens?
      Uncle Chokey: Okay.
      Country Dirt Gnome: THE ONE!!!

    • Mandy: Okay, Grim. Since your scythe is at the cleaners, we'll have to rely on my wits to get Billy. And the first thing we're going to do is stop that music.
      Grim: Is that music? Sounds more like a moose giving birth to an elephant.

    • Mandy: (dressed as a pirate)
      Violets are blue,
      Roses are red.
      We're coming aboard,
      Prepare to eat lead.

    • Grim: spidey senses indicate that whatever's making that music is turning everything into a retro cartoon.
      Mandy: Grim, you don't have spidey senses.
      Grim: Now that complicates things.

    • Billy: Chasin', chasin', chasin' my dream! Chasin' my dream! Got a little gas. (farts) But I'm chasin' my dream!

    • (Mandy gets sprayed by cow's milk)
      Grim: What's this? (sees a retro cartoon phonograph) Hey, Mandy, I've figured out what's making that music. (Mandy gets up) You okay?
      Mandy: Do I look okay?
      Grim: It's hard to tell; you sort of always look that way.
      (Mandy gets sprayed by cow's milk again)
      Grim: Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha! Now that's comedy.
      Mandy: (yells) I HATE RETRO CARTOONS!!!
