      Montana Max: I'm gonna shoot me a deer.
      Vinnie: You think you'll find any? They're pretty clever.
      Montana Max: Yeah, but I'm smarter, and I've got sharp eyes.
      Vinnie: (to the viewer) You know, the other woodland creatures are too gentle to bother this guy. Good thing for them I'm around!

    • Babs: You know, people always come up to us and say "Buster and Babs, how can I learn to be so cool?"

      Babs: And we always tell them "Go away, you complete social outcast!"

    • Plucky: You got it all wrong, pal! We're not real Samurai Slugs. We're just pretending!
      Hampton: Yeah! I'm really a pig!
      Iodizer: Very funny. And I'm not really the Iodizer. My friends call me... Salty Pete!
