Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • man i loved this episode! it has the rrb and the ppg, my favorite combo of characters, all in opne! and with a couple funny lines, this episode is definitely one of the best!moreless

    the episode is mainly about the powerpuff girls capturing rowdyruff boy boomer and having bubbles disguise herself as boomer in a plot to capture brick and butch. there are so many funny moments throughout the episode, and definitely high up on my favorite episode list! the writers really developed the rowdyruff boys more and more, and they were also able to intertwine some comedic situations in as well, such as the boys ( and a disguised bubbles) writing graffiti on a subway wall and brick and butch spelling things wrong, while bubbles/boomer writes " flowers are pretty... DUMB!" on the wall and the brick and butch strut away saying how dumb boomer was for spelling dumb with a B. just classic little boy comedy on that one, overall a fabulous episode that i really suggest watching for any fan of this show!moreless

    • Bubbles: (disguised as Boomer) Well, you see...the candy...uh...I ate it! And if you want it, you can tear open my stomach and eat out my intestines, you...jerks!

    • Boomer: I don't care what they say. I'm not as dumb as I look.

    • Bubbles: Professor, I'm really sorry I busted your invention.
      Professor Utonium: That's okay, Bubbles. I'm sorry you had to eat a cockroach.
      Bubbles: That's okay. It tasted like chicken.

    • Brick: So, what should we do? Boomer, you got any bright ideas?
      Bubbles: (Disguised as Boomer) Well, uh, uh, uh... (Listens through earpiece) How about some chemistry experiments?

      Bubbles: Y-Yes, Professor?
      Professor Utonium: What is this?
      Bubbles: That's a ficus.
      Professor Utonium: Not the plant. This. (Points to wall) Are you responsible for this?
      Bubbles: Um, well, I'm sure to the untrained eye, this drawing may seem like one of mine. But if you look closer, you'll see it's an obvious attempt at pseudo-impressionism, while I deal strictly in realism. Bye!

    • Buttercup: Liver and onions. I hate liver and onions. This stuff isn't even fit for a dog to eat.
      Bubbles: That's it! We'll feed it to our dog.
      Buttercup: Duh. We don't have a dog.
