Mr. Spaceley: I never should've put that dummy Jetson in charge of an operation this important. When I get home, I'll get a new vice president.
[the Jetsons, Astro, Teddy 2, Fergie, Apollo Blue, Squet and some of the Grungies all rise up into the plant from the ore asteroid below by elevator]
George: [angrily] You've already got a vice president.
Mr. Spaceley: Jetson?
George: Yes sir, Mr. Spacely, that "dummy" George Jetson.
Mr. Spaceley: What do you think you're doing, Jetson?
George: Turning off the plant before you do any more damage!
Mr. Spaceley: Stay away from this button! That's an order!
George: No, sir, Mister Spacely!
Mr. Spaceley: What?
George: I said, "No, sir, Mister Spacely!" [everyone cheers] By gosh, that felt good.

George: Hey, you've done everything.
Rudy 2: Everything but press the button that gets it all going. That's your job, George, and Mr. Spaceley says you're the best.
George: Well I wouldn't say that... but - well yes, maybe I would.

[explaining how the factory works]
Rudy 2: There's the drilling bore. It brings up the ore.
George: The bore brings up the ore, got it! [hits the start-up button]
Rudy 2: The ore makes the sprockets.
George: The ore makes the sprockets?
Rudy 2: Uh-huh.
George: Uh-huh.
Rudy 2: Pack the sprockets into packets.
George: Sack the packets into brackets?
Rudy 2: For the lockers.
George: For the lockers!
Rudy 2: Lock the sprocket locker key in the pocket of your jacket.
George: Got the sprocket locker key in my outer jacket pocket.
Rudy 2: Are you ready?
George: I'm ready.
Rudy 2: Take the bore ore sprocket packets from the packet brackets.
George: And we rocket...
Rudy 2: While we're rappin'.
Rudy 2 and George Jetson: Yes we rocket while we're rappin' and we're rockin' and a rollin' and we rocket the sprockets to Spacely. Yeah!

Mr. Spaceley: What'll I do? What'll I do? I can lick this problem, but how? Think, Spacely, think. First I need someone to replace that Throttlebottom. But who? [yells into the intercom] GERTRUDE!
Gertrude: [she comes in] Yes, Mr. Spacely?
Mr. Spaceley: Take a problem. [Gertrude begins typing] We need one: A worker who's total loyalt is to Spacely Sprockets. And, of course, to me: President, CEO, and all-around sweetiepie. Two: someone expendable. [his image comes up on Gertrude's computer screen] Very funny. Three: Smoeone who will work for peanuts. Four: Not too bright. And Five: Someone who can push a button. That's it! Ok, what have you got?
Gertrude: It's thinking, Mr. Spacely. It's thinking. [the screen flashes a lot of images until it comes to George's picture]
Mr. Spaceley: Jetson? I wouldn't choose Jetson even if Spacely Sprockets was going bankrupt! If I needed a transfusion! If I lost my stockholders! My home! If I were penniless! [calms down] Penniless?
Gertrude: He is expendable.
Mr. Spaceley: Perfect!

[the bore driller is operational while the Jetsons, Astro, Teddy 2, Fergie, Apollo Blue, Squet and the Grungies are still underground and motioning to the Jetsons]
Squet: Come on, come on, come on!
[the ground starts to give way under his feet]
Elroy: Oh no! Squet! [grabs Squet's hand] Hang on!
[the ceiling crumbles over their heads, knocking them down over a edge]
Jane: [severly overwhelmed, as fearing of loosing Elroy to possible death] ELROY!
[Everyone works together to move rocks. The Grungies form a 'human' chain to save Elroy and Squek as George and Jane look at each other with conerned looks on their faces. The Grungies pull a dirty Elroy, who is holding Squet, out from the caved in area]
Teddy 2: He's got Squet!
George: Elroy! [picks up Elroy and Squet] Oh thank God you're safe son.
Jane: [Takes Elroy into her arms from George] Oh Elroy, darling. I was afraid. [crying with relief over Elroy's safety] I was so afraid.
Elroy: I'm OK, mom, I'm OK. Squet's OK, too. [he slaps hands with Squet and the Grungies chant Squets name]
George: [to the grungies] Thanks to all of you. [the Grungies cheer] C'mon everybody. We've got to stop the drilling! C'mon! [Everyone runs off]

Mr. Spaceley: Now what, Jetson? What is this time?
George: Just another little glitch, Mr. Spaceley!
Mr. Spaceley: Another little glitch, huh?
George: [shakes the Sprocket off his nose] Yes, sir.
Mr. Spaceley: I think I know what that glitch is, Jetson, and I'm looking at him!

Rudy 2: Mr. Spaceley.
Mr. Spaceley: [to Rudy 2] Where's Jetson, and why is the plant shut down?
Rudy 2: It's the middle of the night.
Mr. Spaceley: Machines don't sleep. Start it up! Every second lost means money lost. And money lost means I scream *a lot*!
Rudy 2: What about a Jetsons. And all--

Rudy 2: There's something going on here, George, the two sprockett lockers were unscrewed from the lock sprockett sockets.
George: Say that again.
Rudy 2: I can't.
