  • TRIVIA (1)

    • If Bubble's ultra sonic bubble sound knocks down Townsville, why are the buildings still behind the Powerpuff Girls when the scene changes back to them?

  • QUOTES (14)

    • Narrator: The city of... whoopsie, wrong scene. (clears throat)

    • Bubbles: (About Mask Scara) Um... Blossom? She's nuts!

    • Blossom: Just tell us why you did it, Mask Scara! Why?
      Mask Scara: Why?
      Mayor: Oh, no! Not again!

    • Mayor: (After they poke him) No! I didn't take it! It was Ms. Bellum! (Gets splashed with water)
      Narrator: There! It's time for you to make your speech.
      Mayor: Uh... oh, okay.
      Mayor: Uh, what speech?
      Narrator: The speech you will make!
      Mayor: Oh!
      Narrator: No, not "oh" -- you.
      Mayor: Why?
      Narrator: No, you!
      Mayor: You?
      Narrator: No, not me; you, the Mayor!
      Mayor: Me?
      Narrator: Yes, that's what I said!
      Mayor: Now, wait a minute. Who's "I"?
      Narrator: I is you!
      Mayor: Stop it!
      Narrator: Gee, are you okay?
      Mayor: I don't know anymore!
      Narrator: Oh, forget it.

    • Narrator: Meanwhile, the girls scour the city, looking for any clue that will lead them to Mask Scara.
      Blossom: We've scoured the whole city, and still no clue that will lead us to Mask Scara!

    • Buttercup: Have you made any progress?
      Professor Utonium: Girls, check this out. I've invented a DNA-based, vector-sensitive, target-seeking computer virus, which if remotely uploaded to the target individual's communications peripherals, will directly enter their sensory system, causing the individual to cluck uncontrollably, like a chicken; develop incurable rashes -- with or without excess body hair; hideous screaming follows, and finally -- ha ha! Total meltdown!
      Bubbles: Uh, that's coolee! But will it help us catch Mask Scara?
      Professor Utonium: Well, no.

    • Narrator: The city of... whoopsie, wrong scene. As I was saying, who will save Townsville? Oh! The Professor! I get it.

    • Narrator: Is there no hope for Townsville? Can anyone stop this faceless defacing? We'll find out after these messages!

    • Mayor: (About his makeup) Gee... I kind of like it.

    • Professor Utonium: Girls, I'm afraid this is a job for a scientist. You girls try and catch Mask Scara, and I'll head home and work on an antidote. And Mayor, you go... do something with yourself.
      Mayor: Uh, okay.

    • Bubbles: Here, try this. (Gives Blossom a hose)
      Blossom: Hold on, Buttercup. (Starts hitting Buttercup with the hose)
      Bubbles: Um, Blossom, I meant use the water.

    • Professor Utonium: And now, she's taking her misfortune out on all of the innocent signage of Townsville! Boy, that makes me mad! Kind of like when you wash your hands in a public restroom, and the hot water just stays cold. Or like when you're mowing the lawn on a hot summer day, and your undershorts keep riding up the -
      Bubbles: Um, Professor, we get the idea!

    • Blossom: Mask Scara! It's the work of Mask Scara!
      Mayor: Uh, did she say Mascara?
      Professor Utonium: No -- Mask Scara, the dreaded villainess.

    • Mask Scara: Now that's what I call the "kiss of death." (Laughs)
