    • QUOTES (4)

      • Chief: Here's a list of places Carmen may have traveled.
        Greg: Chief, wait a minute. Hey, hey. That doesn't happen now. You're completely way too early. What are you doin'?
        Chief: Well-- Well, you're right, Greg.
        Greg: Yeah.
        Chief: I was just going by this schedule.
        Greg: Well, your schedule is wrong then, Chief. All right? (lightning flashes a second time) Wait a minute! It's not time for the Lightning Round! Just excuse me just one moment, guys. We got a real scheduling problem. I'll try to straighten this out. Be right back.
        (enters the office)
        Chief: All these people want to know...!
        Greg: CHIEF! Please! You already did that part! Please.
        Chief: I thought something didn't feel quite right.
        Greg: Exactly.
        Rockapella: Ooooooooooooooooooooh...!
        (Barry and Sean run in, dressed as a safari hunter and gorilla, respectively, when Greg stops them and the music)
        Greg: Hey, guys! WHOA-WHOA! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Listen! It's not time for the Chase! Okay?! I'm sorry!
        (Sean removes his gorilla mask and looks at a piece of paper)
        Sean: According to my schedule, it's time for the Chase.
        Greg: (takes the schedule) This is not a schedule. This is a discarded piece of paper from the producers.
        Chief: You're right. Sorry, boys. Back to the alley.
        Greg: Sorry. Sorry. (Barry and Sean both exit the office) Listen, Chief. We're gonna hafta do this thing for memory. Okay? Uh, okay, guys, every time you watch the show, write down what got stolen and from where.
        Chief: Right. And when you've collected 4 loots and locations, put them on a postcard along with your name and address, and send it to ACME Crime Net, P.O. Box 4300, New York, NY 10163.
        Greg: That's right. And every day, we pick 5 people whose lists are correct and send them each a Carmen T-Shirt. Then we show the winners for today...
        (the contest winners are revealed)
        Chief: Then, we congratulate the winners.
        Greg: Right.
        Greg and the Chief: Do it, Rockapella!
        Chief: No, that's not it. It's got--
        Greg: Hold it. No. See, you gotta-- You're still on this.
        Chief: Oh.
        Greg: Okay.
        Greg and the Chief: Congratulations!
        (Greg laughs)
        Chief: Great.
        Greg: Phew.
        Chief: Now, we can go on with the show.
        (the show stops showing all of a sudden followed by static clouding as the screen became clearer showing Greg out of the office looking at the schedule)
        Greg: Okay, I have an updated schedule, and it's, uh, Phone Tap.

      • Greg: You know, I feel the blues coming on.
        Rockapella: (sing from the alley) Greg, we need you.
        Greg, we need you.
        Oh, yes, we do.
        (Greg enters the alley, ready to sing the song)
        Greg: (sings)
        Look for that rat-faced
        boy in a city
        Where Bessie Smith sang
        the blues so pretty.
        He's a filthy rodent.
        Big and blue.
        Rockapella: Big and blue.
        Greg: All right.
        Bessie sang like
        no one before.
        She made the blues popular from
        shore to shore.
        Stick that stinkin' rat face
        in a zoo.
        Rockapella: In a zoo.
        Greg: C'mon, boys.
        This southeastern Tennessee town's name
        might just suit you,
        if ya sing about a...
        A famous Choo-Choo!
        Bust that filthy rodent...
        If you do.
        All: If you do.
        If you do!
        (Greg shakes the hands of the watching crowd)
        Greg: Oh, yeah! Thanks a lot!
        Rockapella: Greg, go away.
        Greg, go away.
        You go away.
        Greg: Good to see ya, guys. How are ya? Nice. Thanks for comin' out tonight, you guys. Hey, remember your waiters tonight, everybody. Thank you. One more time, let's give it up to the best vocal band in America! Rockapella, ladies and gentlemen!

      • 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 Asia.

      • Chief: This is Lynne Thigpen for "Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?" and remember, ACME Gumshoes top all others, and we always phone our mothers.
