ZimEdit

  • Humans are such fragile, goopy things. No Irken would ever become a chair.
  • Hey, keep it down out here. I'm trying to be miserable in my cheesy cocoon of misery.
  • Buy my bracelet, and get ready for the most peaceful Peace Day your grotesque eyeballs have ever seen! [crowd gasps] The bracelet comes in four colors! [cheers and applause]
  • Look at them, GIR. All this time trying to subjugate the humans, and all I had to do was charge them for it.
  • You're ugly when you lie Dib! [I'm not lying!] Then why are you ugly?
  • Zim always wins!

GIREdit

  • I launched that pug into space.
  • Intruder! Prepare to come on in!
  • [singing] Peace is nice! Peace is nice! Peace is better than chicken and rice! Peace, peace, peace! Nice, nice, nice! Peace, peace, chicken, chicken, rice, rice, rice!
  • [neighbor’s pug crashes through the roof of Zim’s base, flattening Zim]Awww, I missed you so much! [eats pug, launches it back into space again]

Dib MembraneEdit

  • I used to look up at space with hope and wonder in my eyes. Until space looked back.
  • Invader Zim – evil, alien soldier of the Irken Empire, sent by his diabolical masters, the Almighty Tallest, to infiltrate Earth and prepare it for the coming invasion. Disguised as one of us, he moved into my neighborhood, he went to my school, and with the help of his vile mechanical servants, plotted to destroy everything we have – everything we are. And then... he vanished.
  • My name is Dib Membrane. I'm 12 years old. And I'm all that stands between Zim and the annihilation of our world.
  • Can't fight back... sat too long... chair fused to butt... more chair than man now.

Professor MembraneEdit

  • Why, as a child, I thought sharks were my friends. [removes one of his gloves, revealing a robotic arm]
    [in ominous voice] I know better now.
  • Well, the last thing I remember was something hitting me on the head, and starting this incredible hallucination.
  • [to Zim's army of robot henchmen] Why are you wearing those shirts? I never hired any of you!
  • Cut me some slack! This is my first moose!

DialogueEdit


Chair-Dib: [rain pouring and lightning flashing in the background]Zim!
Zim: Yes, it is I, and---Hmm? Oh, wait, sorry. You'll have to move along, you hideous little goblin. I'm posing dramatically for when the Dib shows up.
Chair-Dib: I am Dib.
Zim: What? [peers at Chair-Dib]Ugh, ugh, ugh! Ugh!
Chair-Dib: But-
Zim: Give me a moment here.
Chair-Dib: We know each other-
Zim: I'VE BEEN EXPECTING YOU, DIB!
Chair-Dib: [glances behind him]I can tell. You set up sprinklers, and everything.[camera zooms out revealing sprinklers, a radio, and a flashing nightlight providing rain, thunder, and lightning]
Zim: [kicks radio away, unplugs sprinklers, and shoves nightlight into GIR’S mouth] YOU HAVE NO EVIDENCE!

Dib: Where have you been, Zim? I've been monitoring your house, the school, that taco place you love so much.
Zim: No, no. GIR loves that place. I think it's dirty.
GIR: I ate a baby there.
Zim: He did.

GIR: [eats neighbor’s pug, then fires it out of his head]I fired that pug into space!
Zim: I thought you liked that pig.
GIR: Awww, why I’d do that.

Almighty Tallest Purple: Hey! Remember Invader Zim?
Almighty Tallest Red: Who?
Almighty Tallest Purple: Zim! Tiny? [Chews on his donut for a moment] Screamed a lot?
Almighty Tallest Red: The guy who sends us the donuts?
Almighty Tallest Purple: No... [Pulls out a remote and shows a holographic photo of Invader Jim holding a box of donuts] That's Invader Jim. [Tosses the remote shortly afterward] He's great!
Almighty Tallest Red: Oh, wait! [Pulls out a remote and replaces Invader Jim's photo with Invader Zim] Zim! [Tosses the remote away] We hate him!

GIR: [shouts excitedly] I remember Phase Two!
Zim: You do? Good work, GIR! Tell me.
GIR: You gonna order a million pizzas, and then I gotta roll around in them pizzas, and that's the story about how I turned into a giant pizza.
Zim: This isn't the time for the giant pizza story, GIR. And that will never happen!
GIR: [rolls around all over the the base, screaming]

Dib: Dad, nobody believes me, so I'm used to defending our world on my own, but I wish, just once, you'd have my back.
Professor Membrane: [gets down on one knee and places a hand on Dib's shoulder] Wishing isn't very scientific, son.

Dib: [entering Zim's base] Hey Zim's evil robot, where's Zim?
GIR: Mmm-mmm[points to the television].
Bloaty: [on television screen] This is my special pizza[dunks hands into the pizza], I make just for peace day[pauses, fires a pizza out of his mouth at a window behind him, and kids beside him cheering]. I got ten kinds of pizza inside the pizza[smashes his face into the pizza, starts slapping the pizza with his hands],[raises his face from the pizza]so that's pretty good.
Dib: [frowning at the screen]Where's Zim?
GIR: [sobs]I don't know! I worry about that boy so much-[smashes a nacho-cheese stained Minimoose into Dib's face, Minimoose squeaks]YOU WANT SOME NACHOS?!

Professor Membrane: As you know, tomorrow is Peace Day, and nobody is as excited for the big celebration as I am.
Excited Audience Member: [shouting in the distance] I am!
Professor Membrane: [rapidly rushes up to the excited audience member, and points his finger in the man's face] Not scientifically possible!

Dib: [watching Zim laughing at a child on TV]Wait a minute. That place looks familiar.[jumps up]Is that...[looks out of the window]ZIM! GET OF MY LAWN!
Zim: [continues to cackle, pauses]Hi Dib. What are you doing here
Dib: I LIVE HERE!

Dib: You won't get away with this!
Zim: What?
Dib: You won't get away with-
Zim: What?
Dib: You won't get a-
Zim: What?
Dib: You won't get awa-
Zim: What?
Dib: You won't get away-
Zim: What?
Dib: You-
Zim: What?
Gaz: [points to Dib's head onscreen, looking as large as an over-inflated soccer ball]Dib, check out how huge your head looks on TV!
