24 Hours to Live Part 1Edit

[Harold got hit by a baseball]
Iggy: Say something, Man.
Harold: Goodnight, Mommy.

Harold: Who taught me how to play ball? Your looney grandma?

Arnold (Short Man): Hey, Grandpa, I've got a problem.
Grandpa Phillip (Phil): Shoot it at me, short man.
Arnold: You see there's it's big jerk who says.....
Grandpa: — says he's gonna beat you up, eh?
Arnold: Yeah.
Grandpa: Gonna give you 24 hours to dangle, eh?
Arnold: That's right!
Grandpa: I will use to pound your flat to pound of your face for 2nd base, eh?
Arnold: Yeah, yeah! What should I do?
Grandpa: I have no idea. What we do is never eat raspberries. [Holds his stomach] Excuse me in a sec.[Grandpa runs to the bathroom]

Helga Stone (Pataki): Arnold? Hey Arnold, Twenty-four hours, fifteen minutes and thirteen seconds until you die!

DJ Nocturnal Ned: It's 7:00 on KILL. This one goes out to Arnold, who's going to die in 2 hours, 6 minutes, and 47 seconds, from Helga who hates you.

Harold "Pink Boy" Berman: Wow, you really are crazy. Wanna join our club?

Helga: Boys are so stupid.

6th Grade GirlsEdit

Tommy: [in an Italian New York accent] Hey, Maria, come over here!
Maria: Tommy, you come over here.
Tommy: Aw, forget you!
Maria: Forget you!

A Day in the Life of a ClassroomEdit

Rhonda: Should we do our own make up, or will the crew do it?
Mr. Simmons: Make your own.
Helga: I'd rather watch paint dry.

Abner Come HomeEdit

Arnold: [to Abner at night] Y’know boy, you’re more fun than a hundred dogs put together.

Arnold: [on Abner] Must be getting a drink out of the toilet again.

Grandma: [the morning after Abner goes missing] Anyone for bacon?

Arnold: [describing Abner to the dog catcher] And his tail is so curly when you pull it out it goes 'spoing'!

Gerald: [on the missing pig] Well, did you try going down to the dump and yelling 'sooey'?

Pig Skins R Us crew: [yelling at Abner] Come back here you football.

Grandpa: Brilliant does pretty much describe me. He falls off chair.

Gerald: [on Arnold's brilliant idea] Well, it's not working, and it's making me sick.

Ernie: [overwhelmed at the end] It does kinda bring a tear to your eye.
Grandpa: That's just the onions.

April Fools' DayEdit

Helga: Thanks, Arnold. I really appreciate all that you've done for me. You know, except the part where you made me go blind.

[Arnold is carrying "blind" Helga across the street and a taxi cab is speeding towards them]
Helga: Arnold, look out for that cab!
[Arnold jumps and they land on the sidewalk]
Helga: Arnold, are we alive?
Arnold: We're fine.
Helga: Whew. Good thing I saw — uh, I mean — smelled that cab coming.
Arnold: You smelled the cab?
Helga: Yeah, you know how it is when you lose one of your senses. The others just kind of kick into overdrive. [sniffs Arnold] Speaking of which, you might want to try a stronger deodorant, football-head.

Grandma: Oh, Happy Groundhog's Day, everybody. Yippee! I saw my shadow — and you know what that means!
Grandpa: We know, Pookie... [With Arnold] Twelve more days of Christmas...

Stinky: Um, fellas. Is it just me, or is the floor moving?

Helga: [thinks when she dances with Arnold] I'm actually dancing cheek-to-cheek with Arnold! He's holding me tight, his hair smells yummy... Oh, who am I kid din'?! I love this guy! Maybe I should stop torturing him? Nah, this is way too much fun!

Arnold: [thinking when he dances with Helga] Oh, man, I really hate this!
Helga: [thinking] Oh, man, do I love this or what!

Arnold: Gerald, I think, you're thinking what I'm thinking.
[Gerald whispers something in Arnold's ear]
Arnold: That's even better than what I was thinking!

Arnold as CupidEdit

Oskar: But Suzie, where am I going to sleep?
[Suzie throws sleeping bag and teddy bear at Oskar]

Oskar: Arnold, I can't believe how handsome you're getting, the way your body's growing to match the unusual shape of your head.
Oskar Kokoshka: [about to bet Arnold's CD player during a poker game] Don't worry, Arnold, there's no way I can lose. [next frame] I can't believe I lost.

Oskar Kokoshka: You keep the money.
Suzie Kokoshka: What did you say?
Oskar Kokoshka: You keep the money.
Suzie Kokoshka: Oh, Oskar! That's the most beautiful thing you've ever said to me.
Oskar Kokoshka: "You keep the money"?

Arnold and LilaEdit

--- [Rhonda, Nadine and Lila have just found the words "Arnold Loves Lila" written on the wall. Unknown to them, Helga has written it, originally writing "Arnold Loves Helga" then changing it when she heard them coming.]

Nadine: Do you think it's true?
Rhonda: Of course it's true, it's written on the wall: Arnold Loves Lila.

[Helga is watching as Lila and Arnold spend time together]

Helga: The worst part is, I did this to myself! If only I had left what I wrote on the wall, if only I wasn't so gutless, Arnold would be cosying up to me, instead of that Little Miss Perfect phony Lila.

Arnold Saves SidEdit

Grandpa Phil: You already had three helpings. Hits Oskar's hand
Oskar: Oww, you hurt my hand. I'm going to sue you!

Arnold Visits ArnieEdit

Rhonda: It means weird, and that's a major understatement. I mean, the boy's wearing pajamas for heaven's sake.
Harold: And look, there have little bears on them!
Sid: Boy howdy, talk about embarrassing!
[Arnold blushes]

Arnie: Lets go on a hayride. [Snorts]

[Lulu is flirting with Arnold, but she is making him uncomfortable by being too forward, and he tells her to stop.]

Lulu: [innocently] I can't help it, Arnold. I like you-like you.

Hilda: Oh most luminous orb in indigo sky, looketh you upon my ideal guy.

Oh all-knowing lunar sphere taunting from above, whilst thou never guide me to my one true love- [is cut off by Arnold tripping over her]

Arnold: [smiles instantly] Hi.
Hilda: Hello.
Arnold: Do I know you?
Hilda: I don't think so.

Arnold's ChristmasEdit

Helga: These snow boots are really boss!

Gerald: [to Arnold] What you did, that's the real meaning of Christmas, man.

Helga: Merry Christmas, Arnold.

Arnold's HalloweenEdit

Curly: I wanted to go as pirates.
Harold: No, Vikings.
Phoebe: How about clowns?
Helga: We're all going as aliens because the whole purpose of Halloween is to scare people and make them give you candy.

Gerald: Aliens are coming to destroy the Earth!

Grandpa: [explaining about the kids in alien costumes] The news is all over town. The city is in panic.
Gerald: Uh oh.
Arnold: The news station must have picked up our broadcast. Grandpa, what happened to the kids after you saw them?
[the kids are being chased by an angry mob]

Helga: Arn-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-ld!!!!!
Arnold: [Halfway across town] Did you hear something just now?
Gerald: No.

Arnold's HatEdit

Helga: I need that cute, stupid, football head's hat! Oh....Did I just say that out loud?

Miriam: Helga? The door's locked, honey, what are you doing in there?
Helga: Nothing.
Miriam: Oh... okay.

Helga: All I wanted was the hat... and world domination, but for right now, just the hat. Is that too much to ask?

Gerald: Arnold! Hey Arnold! The Jolly Olly man's gone insane! He's passing out free ice-cream! Come on down!
Arnold: No! I'm not coming down without my hat! Ever! For the rest of my life!
Gerald: Okay. More ice-cream for me.

Helga: Out of my way, Fat Boy!

Helga: Did you happen to see a collection of seemingly useless junk randomly arranged behind a curtain in my closet for no apparent reason?
Miriam: Ah huh, dear. I threw it all out.
Helga: WHAT!?

Marty: Woo! Arnold! Man! Did anybody ever tell you you look like some kind of sun bronzed Greek god these days?

Helga: Ewwwww who said you could touch Me!

Helga Are you trying to make me sick or something?

Helga: I will never wash these clothes again. [Splattt!] Ewww!

Baby OskarEdit

Oskar Suzie, make me a sandwich.
Suzie: In a minute, Oskar, I'm ironing your clothes."
Oskar: Why can't you do both at the same time?
Suzie: Oh, Oskar.
Oskar: What?
Suzie: You know how much I have to do, why can't you just help out a little bit? you know my cousin, Nancy will be here any minute with her baby.
Oskar: But all I want is a sandwich.
Suzie: When Nancy gets here with the baby, I'm gonna count on your help, it'll be a lot of work having a baby around in the boarding house.

Later, Oskar is seen playing his saxophone, which causes Baby Oskar to cry openly.

Suzie: Oskar, please!
Oskar: What? I have to practice.
Suzie: You're not the only person in this house, all you ever think of is yourself.
Oskar: What's wrong with that?

Back to SchoolEdit

Principal Wartz: [to a tough Grandpa Phil] Report to detention after the final bell.
Phil: Report THIS, Wartz! [pulls the fire alarm and walks off]
Principal Wartz: [turns off the alarm] That's it, I'm calling his parents!
Arnold: Grandpa,...

Arnold: Why are you skipping school and acting tough and getting in trouble?
Grandpa Phil: Cause...
Arnold: Cause why?
Grandpa Phil: Because...
Arnold: Because why, Grandpa? (sternly) I want to know why and I want to know right now.

Grandpa Phil I'm gonna run for President. Pookie, you can be my campaign manager. What's our slogan?
Pookie: Melts in your mouth, not in your hand.
Grandpa Phil: Pookie, you're fired. Arnold! You can be my campaign manager.
Arnold: [Sighs] Grandpa...

Grandpa Phil I want that diploma!
Arnold: Then let's go get it.
Grandpa Phil: Right after my nap!

Bag of MoneyEdit

Grandpa Phil: [trying to cheer Arnold up] We'll grow old together... Oh, wait a minute, I'm already old! Well, okay, so you'll grow old alone with no one to talk to and nothing to come to, except your fun memories and... [Arnold gets sad] ...me and... I'm not helping, am I?

BeanedEdit

Helga :What is this clear wall blocking us from outside?
Arnold: :It's a door. I'll get it for you.

Helga :Whatever is this contraption, Andrew?
Arnold :It's a water fountain. You drink from it. [Helga pushes the button and water comes out]
Helga: I like to drink.

BenchwarmerEdit

Coach Wittenberg :Pass the ball to Tucker!

Coach Wittenberg :Excellent pass to Tucker, Arnold — You don't even have to dribble, just pass it to Tucker!!

Best FriendsEdit

Arnold: I'm telling you, Rhonda, I really don't know anything about fashion.
Rhonda :[reading fashion magazine] Hmmm. Okay, tell me this: do red and orange go together?
Arnold :Uhhh...
Rhonda: Of course not. You know that, and I know that. But try to tell that to Nadine — she doesn't listen.

Big Bob's CrisisEdit

Big Bob :Criminy, I'm a monster.

Helga: Actually it was just just gas, doc said you'll be fine as soon as you lay off the double rocks and lambs.

Arnold: Are you okay, Helga?
Helga: Oh I'm just peachy. My dad's joining some wacky spiritual group, brain-washed Miriam and Olga and is planning to take us all to Oregon to live in a hut, out in nature to sing songs and eat bark.

Big CaesarEdit

Grandpa Phil: There comes a time in every youngster's life when he's ready to take on Big Caesar! And you boys... well, you're not ready yet, but I'm tired of waitin'.

Gerald: [about the last boat available for a fishing contest] There is no way we're fishing in a swan boat. [next frame] I can't believe we're fishing in a swan boat.

Big GinoEdit

Gino: [Seeing Sid come in with Arnold] I see you brought your lawyer.

BiosquareEdit

Helga: No electricity? No T.V.? No popcorn? No deal! I'm out of here.
Arnold: Hey, if you can't tough it out for 24 hours, than maybe you should leave.
Helga: Oh, so you don't think I'm tough enough, is that it, Bio Boy? Well, I'll show you, I can stand be anywhere for 24 hours. Even locked in a controlled environment, with you!

Buses, Bikes, and SubwaysEdit

[After Helga discovers a pay phone nearby]
Helga: [to Harold] So how much money do you got? [Harold shows Helga two quarters in his hand] Enough for one call each. Hello, Mom! It's me, Helga! I'm stuck at the chocolate factory with a moron. The school bus left us here and we don't have any way to get back. Oh, please pick up, Miriam. [Helga hangs up the phone]
Harold: [dials the pay phone] Hello? Mommy, it's me, Harold.
Worker at Restaurant :I never heard of you! Don't call me again!
Harold: [hangs up phone] Dialed the wrong number.
Helga: Just brilliant. You don't even know your own phone number.

Harold: Hey, look! The subway! We're saved!
Helga: Yeah, great idea, genius. Only one little problem — it costs money to take the subway, and we don't have any.
Harold: Then we'll just jump the gate. No one ever gets caught. Come on! [gets stuck on the turnstile entrance]
Cop: Hey! You two kids! Come back here!
[Helga pushes Harold through, while they both run into the moving subway, eluding the cop]
Harold: [relieved] Oh! [sighs] That was close. Oh, I think I'm going to be sick!
Helga: "No one ever gets caught."

Helga: [to Sheena's Uncle Earl] Hey Mister, wake up!
Sheena's Uncle Earl: What? Who goes there?
Helga: Can you give us a ride into town?
Harold: There some crazy midget clowns that want to kill us!
Sheena's Uncle Earl: Midget clowns eh? Arr!

Helga: [Harold has begun to hug her] Get off of me, you big whale!

Helga: Everything that happened today was your fault. You can't do anything right! Take the bus for example. Why do you think we missed it, Harold? Oh, let's see, hmm... maybe it was because you were too busy eating twice your body weight in Chocolate Num-Nums! Oh, how about this one? Let's take the subway, I think it goes to Lincoln. Oh wait, no it doesn't, it goes straight to the bowels of the underworld!! Population homicidal, toothless, midget clowns!! I know, let's steal their bike, they won't mind. Now, you'd think that would be enough to fill any moron's day, but you're not just any moron, are you, Harold? You're the king!! Your day's just getting started. So, because of your amazing curiosity about the world around us, you pulled the plug out of the bottom of our getaway boat!!! You idiot.

Casa ParadisoEdit

Ernie's poem "Knocked Down" :I knocked down my share of buildings and leveled a lot of place
And've seen the miserable looks on the former occupants faces.
If you kick us out, Grandpa, we'll be really angry and sad,
On account that living right here has been the best time most of us has ever had.

Chocolate BoyEdit

Chocolate Boy: I need chocolate, where's the chocolate, I gotta have chocolate...

Arnold: Well, you didn't bet Wolfgang, did you?

Edmund: Whoa! Chocolate Boy doesn't want chocolate? Pinch me, I'm dreaming. [Wolfgang pushes Edmund to the ground]

Arnold: I can't believe you. I followed you for two weeks straight, all because of a bet.
Chocolate Boy: Yeah Arnold. Two weeks, no chocolate.
Arnold: But, I thought you really wanted to quit.
Chocolate Boy: Sorry Arnold! I gotta go.

Chocolate TurtlesEdit

Arnold: Why fight it? It's working.

Coach WittenbergEdit

Arnold: Maybe you should try using psychology.
Coach Wittenberg: Hmmm. Psycho-ology, eh?

Cool PartyEdit

Harold: I bet Rhonda thinks I'm a geek because I'm fat and loud and obnoxious!
Curly: And I'll bet she thinks I'm a geek 'cause my dad cuts my hair with a bowl.
Sid: I bet she thinks I'm a geek because of my huge nose!
Stinky: It's not that huge, Sid.
Sid: Thanks, Stinky, but you're just saying that because you've got the biggest honker in the whole city. No offence.
Stinky: None taken.

Harold: [After hearing Phoebe's explanation of a geek] Bite the head off a chicken?!
Eugene: But that's totally unfair! None of us bite off chicken heads... well, except for Curly.
Curly: Yeah! And that was just the one time!

[the kids are thinking of ideas for something to do]
Harold: I say we all go over and crash Rhonda's party and eat all her food!
Kids: YEAH!!!
Helga: Well, I say we get a carload of horse manure and leave it on her porch!
Kids: YEAH!!!
Curly: I say we paint ourselves with tiger stripes, and go free all the animals in the zoo!
[Everyone stares at him]
Helga: [sarcastically] Fine, Curly. We'll meet you there in an hour. [Curly runs away cackling] Poor twisted little freak.

Gerald: Hey, Arnold! Back from the cool party already?
Arnold: Yeah. Basically it stunk. So I left.
Gerald: Wanna go do something?
Arnold: But I thought you had plans tonight?
Gerald: Nah, I just made that up so you wouldn't feel bad about goin' to Rhonda's party. You wanna go throw rocks at Helga throwing rocks at a dumpster?
Arnold: Sure.

Harold: Geek party at Arnold's house!

Curly: Ahhhhaaa free all the animals Ahhhhhhaaaa!

Crabby AuthorEdit

Agatha Caulfield: Holy Crackers!

Crush on TeacherEdit

Gerald: Why are you reading this junk? [teases] Oh, right, you have a crush on Miss Felter...
Arnold: I like poetry, it has nothing to do with her.
Gerald: Right. Later, man.
[Gerald walks away]
Arnold: Oh soft, what light from yonder window breaks? It is the east... [Gerald pauses] ... and... Miss Felter is the sun.
Gerald: [In disgust] That's it, now I'm pukin'.

Gerald: You set a beautiful table, my fair señÑorita. [purrs]
Arnold: Do I have to purr?
Gerald: Yes, chicks dig the purr!

Arnold: [To Miss Felter after Gerald's voice is heard through the walkie talkie that is in Arnold's pants] Sometimes my pants... they talk.

Arnold: You set a beautiful table, my fair señorita.
Miss Felter: Muchas gracias.
Arnold: Aw, enchilada.

Curly SnapsEdit

Curly: Then later in class, Harold answered the bonus question that I was about to answer. Harold stole the question from me! Another injustice.
Harold: No fair! He let me answer that question!
Mr. Simmons: Curly, you let Harold answer that question.

[Behind the lockers]
Arnold: I think Curly's finally snapped.
Gerald: No kidding.
[In the bathroom]
Sid: You guys, Curly's snapped. He's throwing kickballs at Principal Wartz. My kickballs!
[In the halls]
Helga: Hahaha. It's finally happened. Our demented Curly has gone over the edge.
[In the halls]
Peapod Kid: Curly? Snapped? How terrible. Terribly sad.
[In the library]
Campfire Lass: There's a grand brouhaha outside Principal Wartz's office. LET'S GO!

Curly: [throwing a ball at Mr. Simmons] Save your new ageisms for the saps, Granola Boy!

Curly: Heeeeere's Curly!

Principal Wartz: [To Curly] Okay, what are your demands?
Curly: My demands? Okay, I'll tell you my demands! I, I want two Yahoo sodas and, and a meatball sub!

Harold: What happened?
Helga: Any bloodshed?

Mr Simmons: I think we all learned a valuable lesson from this.
Helga: Yep - don't ever trust the quiet ones. They'll go bonkers and hole up in the principal's office.

Curly's GirlEdit

Curly: Oh, you pretty princess. Your mink is so soft, so inviting...
Rhonda: Ugh, get away from me, you creep!
Curly: Tonight's our night, Rhonda. I can feel it in the air!
Rhonda: Listen, you slimy piece of ick. I don't like you! So stop touching my coat with your grimy hands!
Curly: I just want to be closer to you, Rhonda. I want to be your boyfriend.
Rhonda: Boyfriend? I will never, ever have anything to do with you, Curly, ever!

[Rhonda has stained her mother's birthday mink coat, and Curly offers to help for a price.]

Curly: Here's the deal: Curly cleans the fur, and you, Rhonda, all you have to do is pretend to be Curly's girlfriend for a week.
Rhonda: Gross! No way, absolutely not!
Curly: You want a clean fur, don't you? It's either Curly, or facing your parents with a red-stained coat.
Rhonda: What do I have to do?
Curly: After you get the clean mink to your parents, you put on a good show at school that you're my girl, til' three o'clock on Friday.
Rhonda: Nine o'clock.
Curly: Two o'clock.
Rhonda: Ten o'clock.
Curly: Twelve noon.
Rhonda: Deal. [They shake hands] Twelve noon, I get to dump you?
Curly: Sure, Friday at noon. That is, if you haven't fallen completely in love with me by then.
Rhonda: As if.

Curly: So let's review. When I say "Rhonda, my love", you say "Yes, cutie pie". And when I do this...[rubs his hair]
Rhonda: I know. I say "You and me, baby, you and me forever."
Curly: Good, good. And throw in a lot of "you sweet thing" and "how can I deny our love" and "Curly, I'm so lucky to be your girl".
Rhonda: [Groans] My life is over.
Curly: Come on, sweetie. You'll see by the end of the week that I'll grow on you, and you'll want to be my girlfriend.

Curly: I have a special present for you that I want you to wear.
Rhonda: There is no way I'm wearing that shirt. [Next frame, Rhonda is wearing a shirt which has "Curly's Girl" written on it] I can't believe I'm wearing this shirt.

Rhonda: Oh, please. Now we're supposed to feel sorry for Curly?

[Helga and Phoebe are watching as Curly paints a heart on his arm reading "4 Ever Rhonda"]

Helga: Criminy, what a pathetic display.
Phoebe: I'm afraid I have to agree, Helga.
Helga: Guess Miss Rich and Fancy over there really did a number on him.
Rhonda: May I borrow the black paint, Helga?
Helga: Perfect. It'll match the colour of your heart.[Holds up a paper plate with a black heart painted on it]
Rhonda: Excuse me?
Helga: You heard me, Cruella.
Rhonda: Unbelievable!

Dangerous LumberEdit

[Harold gets hit by Arnold's ball]
Gerald: Say something, big boy.
Harold: Easy squeezy, lemon peasy.
Helga: [Calls to someone off screen] Medic.

Ernie: Ow! That baseball hit me right in the head!

Mickey Kaline: You got dangerous lumber, kid!

Mickey Kaline: It's not the hot dog!

Das SubwayEdit

Arnold: We could take the crosstown bus.
Helga: You mean that one?
[The bus goes right by them without stopping]
Harold: Well, we could walk.
Helga: WALK? It'll take days! We'll freeze to death! We'll be eaten by pigeons, or worse... eaten by RATS!

[shudders]' I hate rats!


[about riding the subway]
Gerald: Sun goes down, stay above ground.

Helga: There is no way I'm taking the subway. [next frame] I can't believe I'm taking the subway.

Gerald: The train stopped
Helga: No kidding, Einstein

Grandma: [on the stuck subway car] I'm the only ex-cop in this town brave enough to take on this job.

Hobo: [Repeated line] GET OUT OF MY HOUSE!

Claustrophobic Woman: [repeating over and over] Big open spaces.

Conductor: [through PA system calmly] Passengers, it may just be a matter of minutes or hours [panicking] OR DAYS OR WEEKS [calmly] before the search and rescue team finds our [panicking] FORGOTTEN EXTRACTED SUBWAY CAR...

Grubby man: Wait a minute! Wait a minute, everybody! I got something to say!
Helga: We know. We know.
Everyone: Get out of your house.
Grubby man: No, no, not that. I got something else to say…

Deconstructing ArnoldEdit

Rhonda: Okay, Curly, I admit it. I'm your secret admirer. And the truth is, no matter how hard I try and fight it, [reading off her hand] I'm really, really wild about you. In fact, I've fallen crazy in love. So what do you say? How does that make you feel?
Curly: [dips Rhonda] Give Daddy some sugar. [Kisses Rhonda]

Dinner for FourEdit

Phoebe: Well, I suppose the only solution would be to tell the manager the truth.
[pause]
Helga: That is the stupidest idea I have ever heard in my entire life!

Helga: [after weasling out of paying a dinner bill] There is no way I'm gonna go back in there, tell them the truth, and wind up washing dishes. [next frame] I can't believe I told them the truth, and I wound up washing dishes.

Dino Checks OutEdit

Candy: Dino and I had two really great years together, and then we got married.

Lawyer: [going over Dino Spamoni's will] "My house and money will all go to my most recent ex-wife Candy."
Candy: YESSSSS!
Candy's Son: Can we go now?
Candy: IN A MINUTE!
Executor: [Reading Dino Spumoni's Will] "And I leave my extensive collection of paintings to be equally divided among my five ex-wives-except Bunny, who gets jack-squat."
Bunny: Aw, nuts! Take me home, Chooch!

Ernie: Hey, Oskar, he's not dead! I want my two bucks back!


Door Number 16Edit

Gerald: So I hear you got a package for that secret guy, Mr. Smith.
Arnold: Yeah, and I alone have been shouldered with the weighty responsibility of it's safety.
Gerald: Cool, let's open it.

Downtown as FruitsEdit

Helga: Know your lines? Of course you already know your lines. But I don't want to just hear your lines... I want to feel whats in your souls.
Curly: Do vegetables have souls?

Helga: First, the legumes...
Peapod Kid: Legumes? I thought we were beans.
Helga: You ARE!

Helga: Hey, where are the fruits?
Phoebe: They're not here, Helga. They never showed up.
Helga: Arn-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-ld!
Arnold: [across town on a bus] Did you hear something just now?

Arnold: Wow, people downtown sure are friendly.

Egg StoryEdit

[as Harold and Rhonda are assigned to partner up taking care of an "egg baby"]
Harold: Come on, Rhonda, you know you like me!
Rhonda: [nervously] Where in the world would you get a ridiculous idea like that?
Harold: Remember that time at the Cheese Festival, when you jumped...
Rhonda: [claps a hand over Harold's mouth] I thought I told you never to mention that night ever again.

[after when Harold showed Rhonda their egg that has tape all over it]
Rhonda: What did you do, Harold!?
Harold: Nothing.
Rhonda: Harold, this is not our egg. This — I don't even know what this is. What did you do with Courtney?
Harold: Uh, I, Uh... Oh! I was hungry!
Rhonda: You...ate...our...baby?
[Harold belches]

Eugene's BikeEdit

Young Helga: [In flashback] Hey, Arnold! Shake hands with Mr. Crab!

Eugene, Eugene!Edit

Stinky: What the heck is "Eugene Eugene," Eugene?

Mr. Leichliter: The role of Betty will be done by Lila Sawyer, and the part of Lawrence goes to Arnold... hmmm, I can't even read my own handwriting.

Eating ContestEdit

Harold: I love this contest! I love eating! Wait, I think I ate too fast. Oh, oh, my belly hurts. AAAAH! Mommy! Please, somebody help!
Helga: What did your grandmother stuff these with, Football Head? socks?

Eugene's PetEdit

Arnold and Eugene enter the boy's restroom while Eugene carries Henry's goldfish bowl with Henry's deceased body floating on top of the water.

Arnold: You've gotta do it, Eugene, it's time.
Eugene: (depressingly) Goodbye, Henry.

Eugene is about to flush Henry's deceased body down the toilet, but he refuses to do it.

Eugene: (tearfully) Oh, I can't do it, Arnold, (he sobs a bit.) I've had Henry ever since he was a little baby goldfish.
Arnold: I'll flush it for you, here.
Eugene: Wait!

False AlarmEdit

Gerald: Helga, baby, put your feet up. I’ll tell it.

Curly: Because three months, two weeks and four days ago, Eugene borrowed my favorite pencil - the pencil I got last summer at Wankyland - and then, when he finally returned it, it had chew marks all over it! And he sharpened it down to the metal parts! I couldn't sleep! I couldn't eat! All I could think about was Eugene writing with my pencil, Eugene chewing on my eraser and Eugene sharpening, sharpening, SHARPENING!!! And then, when he finally gives it back to me, he says: 'Oh, here Curly.' Like it was NO BIG DEAL! Well, I couldn't just take that lying down. So I got this plan, see — the fire alarm, I pull it! And then I frame Eugene for the crime! All I had to do was plant the right clues the peanut butter the glasses and to top it all off, the pencil. Bingo, he would be branded for life! Ahhhh Ahhhhh Ahhhahhh!

Curly: [Dementedly] I did It! I pulled the fire alarm! And I'd do it again, too! See? [Laughs dementedly as we hear the fire bell ringing and Curly pulling the levers down]
Principal Wartz: Stop that!

Family ManEdit

Mr. Hyunh: I like to work in the restaurant.

Ernie Potts: I'm telling you, we could pull this off.
Suzie Kokoshka: I suppose I could be Mrs. Hyunh for just one night.
Ernie Potts: And I'll be his brother, Edwin. Arnold will be his son, Grandpa will be his father.
Grandma: [coming in from the kitchen] And I'll be Mary, Queen of Scots!

Harold: Okay maybe, but that won't happen for a long, long time. Right?

Stinky: [talking about the Ghost Bride] The Ghost Bride will get you and hack you up, just like her sister and her former intended!

Arnold: [reading headstone] Here lies Cynthia Snell. She lived her life and went straight to... I can't read the rest.

Harold: Sure we can, these guys did. [points at two dead corpses]
Arnold: But they're dead.
Sid: What's your point?

Sid: [to Curly, dressed as a dead bride] I can't believe you'd pull such a dirty trick!

Curly: OK, it was a dirty trick, I admit it. But I wanted to tell the story! Why should Gerald always get to tell the stories? IT'S NOT FAIR!
Sid: I say we lock him in the crypt and leave him here!

Arnold: Helga?? Are you there??

[Helga is on the floor wrapped in her telephone cord]
Helga: [sarcastically] Yeah, yeah! An agreement sounds great. Have my people call your people and we'll draw up the papers! Yeah, in your dreams, football head! Like I'm ever going to agree with you about anything! And don't ever call me at my house ever again!!! EVER!!!

[Phoebe has just been shoved into a locker when other kids ran past her, in spite of just being made hall monitor.]

Helga: Phoebe, are you OK? Phoebe! Say something!
Phoebe: I quit.

Phoebe: I don't really want to be this bossy scary selfish emotionally challenged person, who has to order people around just to get respect!
Helga: [Oblivious] Who'd want to be like that?

Gerald: You know that monster truck show this afternoon? Wish we could go.
Arnold: Can't, got detention.
Gerald: Yeah, me, too. Look at these! One for walking too fast, one for walking too slow, one for turning a corner too sharply, one for turning too wide, one for squeaky shoes, one for suspiciously quiet shoes. And these are from this morning. [Tosses them on the floor]
[Phoebe writes another ticket and gives it to Gerald]
Gerald: What's this for?
Phoebe: One for littering.

[Phoebe has just given Helga a detention ticket]

Helga: Phoebe, get real. Helga Pataki doesn't do detentions. Besides, I've got tickets to the monster truck show. I was gonna take you.
Phoebe: No, you get real, Pataki. You're the one who told me not to let anyone push me around. Well, I'm not letting anyone push me around, and that includes you. And one more thing, I despise monster truck shows.
Helga: When I told you not to let anyone push you around, I didn't mean me!

Helga: You're a controlling, hall monitoring bully!
Phoebe: You say that like it's a bad thing.
Helga: Phoebe, over the last week, you've screamed at kids in the halls, you've rationed water at the drinking fountain...you've given out more tickets than a lottery! I mean, look around! Half of our class is sitting here in detention!
Phoebe: So what? I'm just acting like you.

One day, the cat snuck into the cage of a frisky monkey and got himself caught. Dr Mischief watched as the monkey and the cat began to fight, they became entangled together and that's when the evil doctor got his big idea. He cut off the monkey's head and sewed on the cat's body and invented...Monkeycat!
Gerald: Monkeycat?
Stinky: Monkeycat!
Gerald: What's so scary about that?
Stinky: It's a banana eating milk drinking horror monster, Monkeycat!

Helga: Moist towelettes, an individual packet of crackers and... a can of shaving cream?

Principal Wartz: [nervously] What do you mean by that?
Dr. Bliss: Nothing.

Helga: What are you looking at?

Phoebe: Ohayoo gozaimasu, Helga.
Helga: No Japanese today, Phoebe, I have a headache.
Phoebe: Oh, okay. English!

Helga: Hey, who's the skirt?

Helga: So I hit him, so what?
Principal Wartz: Miss Pataki, I don't need to remind you that striking another student is violating the school code.
Helga: Brainy? He doesn't mind, I do it all the time. What? You would sock him too if he was standing behind you breathing.

Bob: We didn't have therapy when I was a kid.
Helga: That's obvious Bob.

Helga: So, are you a real doctor? I mean, if I suddenly had a heart attack, would you be able to save me?
Dr. Bliss: Well, there is a heart clinic upstairs, so this would actually be a very good place for you to have a heart attack.

Dr. Bliss: How about we try a little word association? Now, I'm going to read off this list of words, and I want you to say the next word that comes to mind.
Helga: [to herself] Steady girl, you can do it. Do not say Arnold.
Dr. Bliss: Love.
Helga: Hate.
Dr. Bliss: Rocket.
Helga: Locket... pocket... Davey Crocket!
Dr. Bliss: Football.
Helga: Head... ha... did I say head? I mean game. Football game.

I Love ARNOLD!!!!

Helga: I guess I'm pretty sick, aren't I? I mean, I once made a likeness of Arnold's head out of wads of his used gum.
Dr. Bliss: You're not sick. You feel your feelings very strongly. You're very creative. [Pauses] Did you say used gum?

Helga: So it's okay to be obsessed about him? You know, the shrines, the 3 AM vigils, the chanted spells?
Dr. Bliss: As long as you're not hurting anyone it sounds like an okay way to express yourself.
Helga: So animal sacrifices are out?
Dr. Bliss: Yes, I'm afraid so.

Helga: If you ever tell anyone, I'll rip your tongue out and wrap it around your neck!

Helga: Arnold!
Arnold: Oh, sorry, Helga.
Helga: I just want to say that, that... that you should watch where you're going, Football Head, quit crashing into me all the time! Sheesh! [Helga runs away].
Arnold: Nice running into you too Helga.
Helga: Look at him, all ticked off. He doesn't get it. He doesn't know my secret. What a sap! He still can't even tell that I adore him. [Brainy comes out of a corner and gives Helga a plastic ring.] Look Brainy, this is just weird. How is it that you're standing behind me again? How did you get in this little arch? Where you waiting for me to come into this alley? What's your deal? OK, I am not gonna hit you this time. This one's for free. Today I'm feeling generous, but tomorrow look out.

[Helga is doing stand-up in the school juice bar]

[imitating Principal Wartz]
"Attention, students of P.S. 118, I have an important announcement. Henceforth, all lunch-related activities shall be conducted during the lunchtime period."
[normal voice]
Whoo, thanks for clearing that up, Principal Wartz.

Monkey BusinessEdit

(Helga in another moment of dramatic lovesickness)

Arnold, my love, though I shun you in public, berating you, and insulting you, tis only to hide my true feelings of love and adoration (sighs) oh when will I find the strength to express my strange, but nearly uncontrollable affections for you? Hopefully not today or tomorrow because it would be embrassing and humiliating, but perhaps someday in the distant future...yes someday. (punches an upside down Brainy's face sticking out of a treehole.)

Helga

[About the monkey]
Doesn't it do anything else?
[Later, in Helga's dream where she's the monkey]

Helga

To change the grades... or not to change the grades... that is the question....

Helga
Stuck in her shadow, sweet revenge... stuck, revenge.... no contest Helga decides to redo Olga's grades

Olga
[after getting a B plus]
I can't believe. I— I've never even gotten an A-minus!
Helga
Well, you know what they say. The older you get, the brain cells are the first to go.

Big Bob
[about Olga]
She can't be moping all day.
Miriam
Yes she can... I do.

Helga
[eating chocolates]
One for Helga... none for Olga.

Arnold
I don't know, Helga. I've always wanted to have a brother or a sister. I always thought those relationships were kinda special.
Helga
Yeah, well, what do you know? Olga is evil. She's a pompous, overbearing, arrogant witch. Only, this time, I've got her beat.
Arnold
Okay. Forget I mentioned it.

Helga
[on Arnold's advice]
If only I could be that kind... but I'm not, so that's that.

Helga
[on her parents' concern for Olga]
Even when she's out of the way, she still ruins everything for me. Helga slams door on Olga Ah, much better.

Helga
[in fantasy sequence]
What's it like to fly?
Arnold the Angel
It's OK.

Helga
[after telling the truth, and now it's back to the parents praising Olga and punishing Helga]
Everything's back to normal, bucko.

Olga
You must think I'm pretty lucky, all the attention I get from Mom and Dad. I have to be perfect all the time and perform like some kind of wind-up doll. You're lucky that they don't even notice you.
Helga
Thanks.
Olga
Hey, what are sisters for?
Helga
I don't know.

Olga
Tomorrow let's spend the day together, just you and me.

Olga Gets EngagedEdit

Miriam
[when she hears about Olga getting married]
No, Olga! Don't make the same mistake I made!

Helga
Oh man, this guy's a total liar! If Olga marries him, her life will be ruined... Perfect!
Bob
"So what's the stinkin' rush all about? get married in a year, if you still want to."
Miriam
"You won't want to."
Olga
"Mommy, Daddy, please don't be harsh............"
Doug
"It's okay, darling, you're parents just need time to adjust."
Bob
"Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, you little twist top, Big Bob Pataki doesn't adjust, you got it?"
Helga
"Daddy, it's not fair to have Olga choose between her true love........and us."
Olga (tearfully)
"Helga's right, Daddy, you're being an awful brute, and Mommy, you're not even trying to like Doug.......I am so.......miserable."

(Olga runs off crying and weeping to her bedroom)

Helga
"If I play my cards right I can get rid of Olga for good."

Sid: Look! Harold wet his pants!

Helga: Look Phoebe, you gotta snap out of this. I mean, criminy, it's not like it's the first time you ever farted. Heck, when you sleep over you do it all the time. You rip'em all night long, they stink to high heaven. It's all I can do to keep from passing out.
Phoebe: [Points to door from under blanket; irritably] Just get out.

Arnold: [Telling the class about Phoebe] ...and she's so embarassed and upset that she's never coming back to P.S. 118. [Class murmurs]
Mr. Simmons: Thank you, Arnold, for bringing this very serious issue to our attention. [sighs] Now, people, one of our own classmates is in trouble and it's up to us to help her through her crisis. I think we should all go over to Phoebe's after school and tell her that she has nothing to be embarassed about. I think we should tell her that we love her and care for her and if she comes back to school, we'll all forget about her little incident and never talk about it again! What do you say?! [class remains silent] Okay, if we pull this off, then tomorrow's Movie Day.
Class: YEAH!!!

Harold: Slowly after me...
Principal Wartz :No!

[Arnold and Harold approach]

[Helga leans forward and glares angrily at Phoebe; nervously] Or perhaps not.

The BaseballEdit

Mickey Kaline
[to Arnold]

Just try not to get hit, okay?
Arnold
Yeah, good strategy.

Come on, come on.

Ms. Slovak: You're design would make a wonderful float! Arnold: Wow. Could we do it Ms. Slovak? Ms. Slovak: Oh if only it were so, Arnold but that would consume three times the school budget, but at least it goes on the bulletin board (class groans) Stinky: Wouldn't it be great if it was a real float? We could all ride on it too. Helga: Yes we'd ride through the streets like royalty! (dreams, band plays) A beautiful float Arnold, you're such an artistic spirit. Arnold: I'm nothing without you, my queen! (Helga fluffs her hair and bats her eyes as her dream sequence ends) Helga: I think I know where we can get the money... Hello Dad, How are you this evening? Comfy? Enjoying your paper? Big Bob: What do you want? I slready gave you your allowance.

Arnold
It's not insurmountable.
Gerald
Insurmountable? Man, you read too much.
