Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (6)

    • In "Bought and Scold," just as Princess notices her stuff is gone, in the next shot, she shouts, "My stuff!" But when she shouts "my," her mouth didn't move.

    • After Blossom said, "yeah, about just kidding," the next shot shows the Girls except Bubbles who flew into the city. But look closely, Buttercup's flash line looks blue instead of green.

    • If Bubbles hates her glasses, why did she carry them with her?

    • In "Bought and Scold," while Princess gets herself a glass of water, all the things she has have been stolen by the Girls (of course), but there wasn't a single sound or crash heard.

    • If crime was made legal, then the Powerpuff Girls (and anyone else) could stop people from committing crimes. A crime is breaking the law. So, if the law says crime is legal, then it would be legal to break that law and stop crimes, because you're committing a crime by stopping the crime, which is legal. It's rather surprising that thought didn't occur to anyone on the show.

    • In "Bubblevision," Bubbles' magnified laser beam completely destroys the giant ant, but the PPG remain okay, even though they're in the line of fire, too.

  • QUOTES (22)

    • Narrator: Now I know the Mayor's not the sharpest tool in the shed, but... CRIME LEGAL?

    • Blossom: Quick! Search for a weak spot.
      (ant stomps on Buttercup)
      Blossom: Buttercup! (pulls her free) It's no use, we've gotta find Bubbles.

    • Blossom: Princess, I want--
      Princess: You want?! You want?! What about what I want?! I wanted to be a Powerpuff Girl, but, NO! You wouldn't let me! So, then, I wanted to destroy you, but you always defeated me! Well, now, I am in charge! I am the mayor! I make the rules! And I say CRIME! IS! LEGAL! And if you try to stop ANYONE, I will throw you in jail! Now get out of my office!

    • Princess: OK! OK! Here's the key to the city and the Mayor's hat, now give me back the stuff, the stuff, HUURRRRY!!
      Blossom: We'll be right back. (Whizzes off)

    • Princess: No, wait, I need that stuff! I'll do anything for it! Please? Please?
      Blossom: Give back Townsville to the Mayor and Ms. Bellum.
      Princess: NEVER!!! (alarm goes off)

    • Princess Morbucks: (giggles nervously) Good morning, Daddy. I was just wondering how did all this stuff get out here, so you see it's those stinky Powerpuff Girls' fault! They only did that because I HATE THEM! (cries)

    • (Bubbles starts giggling)
      Bubbles: Oh, you can't arrest us.
      Blossom: Crime was legal when we robbed you, so technically...
      Buttercup: ...All your stuff is ours now, see ya.

    • Princess Morbucks: I WANT A GLASS OF WATER!!!! ON THE ROCK!!!! (mutters to herself)

    • Princess Morbucks: I'M READY FOR BED NOW!!!!!!

    • Blossom & Buttercup: BUBBLES, HELP!
      Bubbles: What, what? (screams)
      Blossom: Do something!
      Bubbles: Which one is it?
      Blossom: Use your glasses.
      Bubbles: No, I don't need them!
      Buttercup: You're missing...
      Blossom: ...Badly.
      Bubbles: I can get him. (trips over backwards)
      Blossom & Buttercup: USE YOUR GLASSES!!!
      Bubbles: NO! (ant stamps on her and tries to get free) OKAAAAAAY!!!!

    • Blossom: Bubbles.
      Bubbles: No.
      Blossom: Bubbles.
      Bubbles: I'm not listening.
      Buttercup: Bubbles, turn around.

    • Bubbles: I don't need these stupid glasses to be 100%. I can see just fine. (flies into tree) OW!
      Narrator: Oh, boy, without her glasses, Bubbles can't see the forest or the trees.

    • Blossom: This is awful! (sobs) Princess' new law makes us the bad guys.
      Bubbles: I'm not a bad girl; I'm a good girl, right?
      Buttercup: GOOD GUYS, BAD GUYS! It doesn't even matter! Princess won! We're out of business! Our crime fighting days are a BUST! Cause now, if we bust a law buster, we get busted.
      Bubbles: It's not fair. If we do good, we'll be bad. And we'll have to do bad if we wanna be good.

    • Professor Utonium: Honey?
      Blossom: Are you okay?
      Buttercup: I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry.
      Bubbles: Hey, I can see! In fact, I can see better than ever! What happened, Professor?
      Professor Utonium: Well, as far I remember, Buttercup's blast to your eyes must have hit the exact spot causing some electron laser surgery. I must say, I'm very impressed. (gushing)
      Bubbles: What? What'd you say? I can't hear you.

    • Girls: MAYOR!
      Bubbles: How could you do this?!
      Blossom: Make crime legal.
      Buttercup: What were you thinking?
      Princess Morbucks: I'm thinking of putting you meanies OUT OF BUSINESS!!!

    • Blossom: Professor, there's something wrong with Bubbles.
      Bubbles: I'M FINE! There's nothing wrong with me! Don't make me COME OVER THERE!

    • Narrator: The city of Townsville! You may find it very peaceful here... as long as you ignore THE GIANT ANT!!!

    • Bubbles: I do look like a dork.
      Buttercup: No, you don't.
      Blossom: Yeah, you look like a ner -
      (Professor slaps her mouth shut)

    • Bubbles: I'm back!
      Blossom: What a sight for sore eyes!
      Buttercup: It's old four-eyes!
      Bubbles: Hey! You said you were just kidding!
      Blossom: We were!
      Buttercup: ... about being kidding!

    • Narrator: The city of Townsville! A locale inhabited by some of the most accursed, ill-conditioned, infernal, unprincipled, spineless, monster-ous, distasteful, felonious, gross, dark, naughty, foul, grave, miscreated, and spoiled lawbreakers to ever break laws! But fear not, fair city. For enforcing the law of the land are the pure, the proud, and the perfect Powerpuff Girls!

    • Princess Morbucks: (Waking up to find everything in the mansion stolen) Oh, no! Not all the things, and items, and possessions, and purchases!

    • Princess Morbucks: Just because I talked him into buying me Townsville, Daddy'll say it's all my fault!
      Bubbles: It is your fault.
      Princess Morbucks: That's not the point!
