  • Quotes

    • Nitz: Rocko's just a violent, drunken and porn loving guy.

    • Jessie: Hey Nitz, wanna grab some grub?

    • Cal: Wow, I've touched the lives of so many people, guy. I'm like Roma Downey.

    • Cal: (Reading an article on the "I hate Cal" newsgroup) "If I were Cal, I'd cover myself with honey and feed myself to those angry red ants they got in Bolivia".

    • Rocko: ( still dressed as a hot dog ) Well, it's become clear I have to go convince girls to pour mustard on me.

    • Cal: I don't know what to do. Should I be the old me and be liked by all the ladies or be the new me and be liked by everone else?
      Rocko: ( dressed as hot dog ) And I'm descending further and further into madness.

    • Rocko: Gimpy, I don't know what to do! Now that Cal's not a wad anymore, I don't hate him and nothing makes sense! Like right now, I was thinking about eating this sock puppet because that makes about as much sense as me liking Cal! (shoves sock puppet in mouth)

    • Rocko - Ok Cal, everytime you do something I don't like i'm going to use this book to help you.
      cal ( reading title of book ) - " negative stimuli psychology " sounds fun guy *slurps* what should we do next guy * slurps* do you think it'll work best buddy Rocko guy *slups* ( Rocko smacks Cal across the face with book ) Oh I mean do you think it'll work best buddy Rocko guy, guy?
