      • Carmen: You'd better take the gulf on the lam.
        Wonder Rat: I am on the lam, Carmen. I've been in 4 countries in the last 8 minutes.
        Carmen: I mean the Lam Sea. That's what the local people used to call it, anyway. The sea is officially part of Russia, so you see its modern Russian name on maps. Head for Sakhalin Island.
        Wonder Rat: Gee, you'll think I'll run into any of my faithful devoted fans, Carmen?
        Carmen: No, they're both in prison, but keep your claws out of the water. The sea is full of crabs.
        Wonder Rat: Hey, crabs love me! I'll get a crustacean ovation! (laughs)

      • Greg: Hiya, Chief. Listen, I was expectin' you to call me in.
        Chief: Well, I couldn't, Greg. My intercom doesn't work, and look, (shows her magnifying glass) my magnifying glass won't magnify. The blotter won't blot. Well, I can't even open my drawers!
        Greg: Chief, listen. Maybe your desk is outta gas. Now, when was the last time you had it filled?
        Chief: Well, you know, I've been so busy, I haven't even thought about it lately.
        Greg: Look here, this is your problem. It's bone dry. Huh? I'll fill it up for you.
        (he taps the left side of her desk to bring the Chief's screen up and puts a gas pump in the top of the monitor to have the desk filled with gasoline)
        Chief: Oh, thanks. And while you do that, I'll tell the home viewers at home about the contest. Every time you watch the show, write down what got stolen and from where. When you've collected 4 loots and locations, write them down on a postcard with your name and address, and send it to ACME Crime Net, P.O. Box 4300, New York, NY 10163.
        Greg: (cleans the windshield with a squeegee) That's right. Every day, we'll pick 5 people whose list are correct and send them each a Carmen T-Shirt. (spits) Here's who won today.
        (the contest winners are revealed)
        Chief: Congratulations to the winners.
        Greg: Heck of a deal.
        Chief: Yeah.
        Greg: All right, uh, full tank there, Chief. (removes the gas pump and the Chief starts her desk) Okay. (taps the monitor to descend back down) All right. Safe as always.
        Chief: (hands Greg his tip) There you go. Keep the change.
        Greg: Thank you. Drive safely.
        Chief: (turns on her headlights) You bet.
        Greg: (as the Chief drives off) And don't play your radio too loud! You know what happened last time. (the Chief waves goodbye and so does Greg) See ya! (exits the office with the gas pump)
        (Greg returns to HQ, whistling while carrying cleaning spray and his squeegee and cleans the camera)

      • Wonder Rat: All right! Now I can sell my prison memoirs and make a zillion! Get Carmen in here so she can make me a publishin' deal. She's hidin' out in North America.
        Greg: What'd he say?
        Diana: We're goin' to North America!
        Greg: (laughs) Do it again!
        Diana and Greg: We're goin' to North America!
