Ben 10 First Season

Ben 10, created by Man of Action [a group which consists of Duncan Rouleau, Joe Casey, Joe Kelly, and Steven T. Seagle], is an original series from Cartoon Network Studios that aired as part of Cartoon Network's Sneak Peek Week on December 27, 2005. On a camping trip with his cousin and grandfather, a boy named Benjamin "Ben" Tennyson finds a device called the Omnitrix, which looks similar to a watch. The Omnitrix attatches to Ben's wrist and allows him to transform into alien heroes that have different powers.

First SeasonEdit

And Then There Were 10Edit

Heatblast: I know I look weird, there's no reason to be scared of...
[Gwen hits him with a fire extinguisher and sprays at him, causing him to cough]
Gwen: I don't know what you are, but you'll stay down there if you know what's good for you. [Heatblast puts her shoe on fire and laughs as she puts it out] I warned you.
Heatblast: Don't even think about it, freak.
Gwen: [recognizing Ben by the way he talks] Ben? Is that you? What happened?

Vilgax: [to Robot Lieutenant] What do you mean: it's not there? This battle nearly costs me my life, and you say the Omnitrix is no longer aboard the transport?!

[Ben destroys Vilgax's robot]
Vilgax: Failure?! Unbelievable! The puny earth being that is keeping the Omnitrix from me will soon hang on my trophy wall.

Grandpa Max: Where's Ben?
Gwen: Haven't seen him since breakfast. [XLR8 came to the RV] Ben?
XLR8: Yup. Hey, check this out. [uses his super-speed to get the bags faster] Pretty fast, huh?

Washington B.C.Edit

[Ohhs and ahhs]
Heatblast: I'm sure you all want to thank me personally, but really it's all in a day's work for... [looks at the boy] No way! A gold Sumo Slammer card! [sits next to the boy] Where'd you get it? I've been searching all over for that!
Boy: It was a prize inside a box of Sumo Smack cereal.
[Horn honks]
Gwen: Yo, super doofus. The fire was just a diversion to cover up a jewelry store robbery. The bad guys are getting away.
Heatblast: [turns to the boy, then back to Gwen] Uh, I knew that.

Grandpa Max: [realizing that Heatblast's ambient heat is burning the seat] I should have gotten those asbestos seat covers when I had the chance.
Heatblast: Sorry, Grandpa, I can't help it. I'm hot
Gwen: [trying to keep the blaze under control with a fire extinguisher] Ten superheroes in that stupid watch, and you pick the one with the flaming butt.
Heatblast: Jealous?
[Gwen blasts him in the face with the fire extinguisher]

Heatblast: [to some robbers] Unless you punks want a permanent sunburn, hands against the wall. You punks picked the wrong day to be bad- [transforms back into Ben]
Ben: Guys.
Robber #1: Huh? What? Hey, it's just a kid! Get the jewels!
Ben: [realizing he's back to normal; sirens are heard in the background] Wow. Time sure flies when you're having fun. I've decided to let you guys off with a warning this time.
[The police arrives]
Police Officer: Freeze!
Ben: They're all yours, officers. I know you all want to thank me, but...
Police Officer: Step aside, son. This isn't playtime.
Ben: Playtime? I'm the one who captured them! It's not fair! I'm the hero! Oh, man...

[At the grocery store]
Grandpa Max: Only canned octopus? I thought this store prided itself on wide selection.
Gwen: Uh, Grandpa, no offense, but can we have a normal dinner for once? You know, once that doesn't involve stir-fried tentacles?
Grandpa Max: Nonsense. Now where do you suppose they keep the sheep's bladders?
Gwen: [hears the Omnitrix activate] Ben? [walks into the cereal aisle to find all the boxes opened and finds Grey Matter digging through one of them]
Grey Matter: Oh man, another red card.
Gwen: Gotcha! What are you doing?
Grey Matter: Uh, looking for the gold Sumo Slammer card, duh.
Gwen: You're supposed to use your powers to help people, not find some stupid trading card.
Store Manager: [clears his throat] Just what do you think you're doing, young lady?
Gwen: It wasn't me. It was my doofus cousin.
Store Manager: Well, someone is going to have to pay for all this.
[Gwen grunts]

Grandpa Max: So, why are we buying all of this cereal?
Ben: Well, we would have only had to buy the one that I found the Gold Sumo Slammer card in if Gwen hadn't butted in with her big butt.
Gwen: Hello, you were trashing the whole cereal aisle just to find some stupid piece of cardboard.
Grandpa Max: Ben, now I can appreciate how much this card means to you, but don't you think you're getting a little obsessed?
Ben: Maybe you're right, Grandpa. I don't deserve a Gold Sumo Slammer card. I mean, it's not like I rescued a bunch of people from a burning building or anything like that.
Gwen: Superhero guilt: pretty low.
Ben: Hey, whatever it takes.

Grandpa Max: [while following the giant parrot] Ah, just like the good old days, before I retired.
Gwen: So, exactly, what kind of plumber were you, Grandpa?
Grandpa Max: Uh, a darn good one. Ben, what's the matter?
Ben: I save an entire Mega Mart from being a giant hamster's chew toy, and what do I get? Nothing. It's not fair.
Grandpa Max: Being a hero isn't about others knowing you did something good; it's about you knowing you did something good. Being a hero is its own reward.
Ben: What, were you reading the greeting cards at the Mega Mart?
Grandpa Max: Well, yes.
Gwen': [Computer beeps] Bingo! Five years ago, Dr. Animo was a promising researcher in veterinary science. But it turned out he was doing all these twisted genetic experiments where he was mutating animals, and when he didn't win some big prize called the Verities award, he flipped out. Anything about this sound familiar, Ben?

Ben: [regarding Dr. Animo] Does this guy come with subtitles?

Gwen: I think I'm gonna be sick.
Stinkfly: Spew on me and you better learn to fly quick.

Stinkfly: [spotting a golden Sumo Slammer card] Wow! I scored Sumo Slammer gold! [realizing someone is about to get eaten by Animo's T-Rex] Oh, man. This hero stuff ain't easy.

The KrakkenEdit

[Ben jumps into the Chesapeake Bay and invites Gwen to come in too.]
Gwen: Please. Who knows what nasty slimy things are slithering around in there? [shines her flashlight on Ben] I rest my case.
Ben: Aw, come on! What's the fun of camping out near a lake if you're afraid to get a little wet? (splashes Gwen with lake water)
Gwen: Aah! Knock it off, midget!

Fourarms: I can't believe she fell for it. A monster in the lake. How dumb can you be?
[Krakken attacks Fourarms]

Ben: Ripjaws to the rescue.
[jumps overboard, activates the Omnitrix underwater]
XLR8: [rising to the surface] Hey! I said Ripjaws, not XLR8! Stupid watch!

Jonah Mellville: Thanks for the hand. And the feet.
XLR8: Just what's in that box that's so important you'd risk your lives for it?
Jonah Mellville: Umm... Our lunch.
XLR8: You almost got munched for a few sandwiches?

Ripjaws: [to Jonah Mellville] If you wanna mess with a monster, try me on for size.

Permanent RetirementEdit

Ghostfreak:(Upon seeing an old woman jump up onto the ceiling and snatch a fly in her mouth) Whoa. Ninja old people.

Ben:[Powers up the Omnitrix and it shows Heatblast, he is going to push it.] You guys really burned me up!

Vera: (giving Gwen the seashell) Listen. (Gwen puts the seashell to her ear and hears, not the ocean, but raspy breaths; Ghostfreak appears behind her)
Gwen: (gasps) Ben?
Ghostfreak: (waving to Gwen) See ya, wouldn't wanna be ya.


Ben: I've kicked so much alien butt, my feet hurt! [Ben puts his feet on the table in front of Gwen, who pushes them back onto the floor.]
Gwen: Yeah, well, one of these days you're gonna screw around and get your own butt kicked! And I hope I'm there to see it!

Ghostfreak: (to Gwen) What's the matter, Gwen? Look like you seen a Ghost..Freak!
Gwen: You don't scare me anymore!
[Giant robot destroys the door]
Gwen: But he does!

[Gwen is hiding from the giant robot (see above) with Ben.]
Gwen: Remember when I said I wanted to be there when you got your own butt kicked? {see above} I take it way back!

Tourist TrapEdit

Upgrade: Okay, don't go after an electric guy when you're made of living metal.

[After Gwen tries an experiment to ground the Megawhatts which failed, Ben looks to Gwen and grins.]
Gwen: Ben Tennyson, do not say anything.
Ben: Hey, it just feels good to know that I'm right for once.

Kevin 11Edit

Kevin: Ha! So much for your gang! [Heatblast's power dissolves] Uh, what's going on?
Fourarms: Your powers are gone.
Kevin: Looks like you're about to give me some more, Ben.
Fourarms: I don't think so.
Kevin: You don't have a choice. I still got enough juice to fry these guys.

Kevin: This is gonna be real fun.
Fourarms: Tell me about it.
Kevin: I'm taking all your alien powers.

Kevin: [smiling] If they thought I was a freak before, [uses Heatblast's fire powers] just wait.

The AllianceEdit

Ben: [as Heatblast] Great. I need muscle and I get an alien candle instead.

Ben: This is my fight. My weird watch, not yours.
Gwen: Yeah, but you're my weird cousin.

Last LaughEdit

Gwen: Can we go [to the circus] Grandpa? I love the circus.
Ben: That's because you belong in one.

Upgrade: Didn't your mom ever tell you it's not polite to spit?
Acid Breath: Who do you think taught me in the first place?

Ben: [as Upgrade, getting ready to go inside and face Zombozo] Okay. He's just a guy with a red rubber nose and some makeup. Nothing Upgrade can't handle.
[Omnitrix powers down]
Ben: [yelling at the Omnitrix] Whose side are you on, anyway?

Ben: [turning into Ghostfreak] Oh, you're funny. But I'm gonna get the last laugh!

Zombozo: [Clearly unimpressed with Ben's transformation] Nice try, kid. But I sell the tricks, I don't BUY 'em.

Ghostfreak: Aww. Now don't tell me you're afraid of old Ghostfreak.

Gwen: [pops up wearing a clown mask] Boo!
Ben: Hi, Gwen. Trying on some new makeup? That's a good look for you.
Gwen: Aww, you're no fun anymore.

Lucky GirlEdit

A Small ProblemEdit

Ben: [Turned to Grey Matter when he wanted Ripjaws] No! Anything but the micro-munchkin! [under the circumstances he should have at least appreciated not getting Heatblast]

Grey Matter: [attempting to get revenge on the attendant who wouldn't let him on a ride] Time to tie up some loose ends.

Gwen: Grandpa's not going to like going alien just to sneak on a ride.
Grey Matter: That's why I'm not going to tell him. In a few minutes, I will be back to normal, and he'll never know. [glares at Gwen] Will he?
Gwen: We gotta towel off. Or in your case, napkin off.

Grey Matter's kidnapper: Amazing! A perfect miniature alien being!
Grey Matter: Who you calling miniature!?

Gwen: [answers the phone] Hello?
Grey Matter: Gwen, it's me.
Gwen: Ben? You're still Grey Matter?
Grey Matter: Yeah, the watch still won't work.
Gwen: Where are you?
Grey Matter: Uh, there appears to be a mountain peak 13.2 miles due West with a vertical angle at 45 degrees.
Gwen: Brainiac, how about a street?
Grey Matter: Oh, yeah, it's Ripley.

Grey Matter: [taunting a cat] Here, kitty, kitty. I taste just like chicken.

Grey Matter: [talking to the Omnitrix] What is your malfunction? Probably something stupid like the DNA splicing replicator copying a fragment of amino acid sequence. [Pause as Ben's mind starts to catch up] So this is what it feels like to be smart.

Howell: Hey! Back off! Aliens are people too! (pauses) Well... sort of.

Grey Matter: [Gasps] Ahhhh....fresh air! (he's in a toilet) Fresh is so gross....

Side EffectsEdit

[After a long chase, Gwen finds Ben sneaking a snack inside an ice cream truck.]
Gwen: Maybe now you'll think twice about having snacktime inside an ice cream truck.

[Gwen pulls out a lot of medicines.]
Gwen: Decongestant, cough suppressant, hospital mask...
Ben: [wipes his nose] I don't need all that junk.
Gwen: They're not for you, dweeb! They're for me. Once a bug like that gets out, there's no stopping it.
[Ben grabs a shirt that Gwen left on the couch and wipes his runny nose with it.]
Gwen: Hey! That's my new blouse!
Ben: Maybe now you'll think twice about leaving new clothes lying around.

[Ben, as Fourarms, grabs Max and Gwen in his bottom arms while breaking out the ceiling with his top ones. Gwen, noticing Ben's smelly hives, covers her nose.]
Max: It's your hives. The cold must have turned them into pus-filled pockets of...
Gwen: ...Pure putridness!
Fourarms: I can't help it! I'm sick!


Vilgax: The Omnitrix. Wasted on pointless heroics!
Robotic Lieutenant: Should I dispatch more drones to retrieve it?
Vilgax: No. '[leaves the storage tank]' I'll see to this task myself.

Vilgax: The Omnitrix has been activated. Pinpoint its location. [the location of the Omnitrix] I have you now.

Gwen: [after her laptop malfunctions] Hey, what gives?!
Upgrade: Sorry, you are a loser. And always will be.
Gwen: Aah! Ben, get out of my computer!
Upgrade: What? I'm just entertaining myself.
Gwen: This is my private property and you're getting your cooties all over it!
Upgrade: Huh? What's this? A diary! Dear Diary, my cousin Ben is such a--
Gwen: Doofus! Knock it off!
Grandpa Max: Ben, now it's not the time to go alien. You might attract some attention.
Upgrade: What attraction could I attract in here? [reverts back to Ben]
Grandpa Max: Never mind.

Heatblast: Who are you?
Vilgax: I am Vilgax and I have come here for the Omnitrix.

Grandpa Max: Things is gonna be a lot worse if we don't get to Mount Rushmore.
Gwen: Why? What's at Mount Rushmore?
Grandpa Max: Gwen, this is not the time to explain. You gotta have to trust me.

Vilgax: I grow tired of this. [touches the button to deactivate the Omnitrix]
Ben: Hey, how'd you do that?
Vilgax: A child? The Omnitrix is in the hands of a mere child?! [blasted by the Omnitrix] It appears the Omnitrix already merged with your own DNA.
Ben: Don't suppose that means you're gonna let me go, does it?
Vilgax: Hardly.

Vilgax: A child. I should have suspected as much. The Omnitrix being used as a play toy.
Ben: Hey, I saved a lot of people by going hero.
Vilgax: You hold the key to a power struggle so ancient, so vast, it is beyond your feeble comprehension. Picture an entire army, each in command of an Omnitrix at my command, I will be invincible. I will rule the universe. And the only thing standing between me and my destiny is you.

Grandpa Max: Claws off my grandson, Vilgax!
Ben: Grandpa?
Vilgax: Tennyson. [Grandpa Max hits Vilgax with an energy blast]
Ben: Grandpa? [about Vilgax] You know this guy?
Grandpa Max: It's a long story.

Vilgax: [to Grandpa Max] Your weapon won't help, Tennyson. As you can see, I'm much stronger than our last encounter.

Gray Matter: [inside one of Vilgax's drones] A little alien know-how and the toaster is toast.
