  • Check it out: I'm Shaquille O'Neal.
  • Hello, Crystal Bluff.  There's a new kid in town.
  • [after being attacked by a broodwarrior]  Why does everyone want to beat me up‽

  • I can't babysit the little scab juice tonight!
  • A little survival tip: stay out of my way!


  • Janet Holloway:  I used to be scared to death of spiders.  [places tarantula in Spencer's hands]  Hold still now.  Yeah, I almost fainted once when a little garden spider crawled into my bedroom.  Yeah, I told my dad about it; you know what he did?  He bought me a tarantula just like Leo G there.  He knew I'd have to change my tarantula's water, and that meant sticking my hand in the terrarium.  If I didn't give him water, the tarantula would die.  My dad figured I couldn't let that happen, even to a spider.  He was right: I stuck my hand in that terrarium—oh, that first time.  Oh, man, I was so scared.  But you know what?  It got easier.  Pretty soon, I wasn't even scared anymore.  In fact, I go so into spiders, I started studying them, and I found science, and I became the world's greatest science teacher.  …  Point is, if you run away from the things you're scared of, it doesn't get any better.  The fear doesn't go away; in fact, it just gets worse.  Trust me.
  • Nadia:  [selling Cyborsuit shirts to fellow kids]  Look, we gotta make a profit here.  You're just gonna have to tell your mom to increase your allowance.
  • Narrator:  [from the trailer]  …comes the story of two friends who must join forces to save two worlds…if they don't destroy this one first.
