Season 1Edit

Things Change [1.1]Edit

[Opening lines]
Leonardo: [Narrating] My name is Leonardo. And right now, my brothers and I are in a mess of trouble. Our backs are up against the wall in some trash thrown alley. Cornered by the toughest street gang on the east side.
Johnny - Purple Dragon Gang Leader: Look at the freaks!
Two Ton: What's with the dweeby costumes?
Purple Dragon Member: This ain't Halloween!
Johnny - Purple Dragon Gang Leader: You're going down, freaks! Nobody messes with the Purple Dragons! Especially wearing stupid turtle costumes!
Leonardo: [Narrating] He's wrong. We're not wearing costumes.

Splinter: Remember, to be a true ninja you must become one with the shadows. Darkness gives the ninja power, while light reveals the ninja's presence.

Splinter: Well done, Leonardo.
Raphael: [to Leo] Teacher's pet.
Leonardo: [to Raph] Ninja dropout.
Splinter: My sons! *sigh* My sons, If you are to become true ninja you must work harder. Your path in life will not be an easy one. The outside world will not be a friendly place for you. You four are different in ways the surface dwellers would never understand. To survive, you must master these skills I teach you. Ninjitsu powers of stealth and secrecy. You must become kage; shadow warriors. And you must never be discovered by the outside world.

A Better Mousetrap [1.2]Edit

Meet Casey Jones [1.4]Edit

Michelangelo: [Whispering] Donatelloo, Donatelloo, if you build it, we will ride....in turtle style!

[After Raphael has just apologized for his actions]
Leonardo: Alright, who are you, and what did you do with our brother Raphael?

Casey Jones: Friends of yours?
Raphael: Brothers, actually.
Casey Jones: Yes, I can see the family resemblance.
Michelangeo: I'm the pretty one.

Nano [1.5]Edit

Donatello: Uhh, no problem. I'll fix it..in the morning.
Casey Jones: Whatcha working on?
Donatello: Uh, boring stuff.
[Raphael and Casey Jones are fighting a group of Foot ninjas, who have just vanished.]
Raphael: These guys must have some sort of cloaking devices!
Casey Jones: Cloaking devices!? What are they? Klingons?!

[Casey is finding excuses to stay at the lair and the turtles hastily persuade him to leave]
Michelangelo: We'll pour you drinks, we'll do your bed...and we will tell you story.

Donatello: The Turtles? My friend, unfortunately the lowly turtle has been saddled by society with the stereotype of being "velocity challenged."
Raphael: Say what?

The Shredder Strikes Back Part Two [1.18]Edit

Splinter: In the hands of a true ninja master, anything is a weapon.

Shredder: You freaks have been a thorn in my side long enough. No one opposes the Shredder. And now I will have my revenge for our last encounter. Say farewell to each other -- while you still can.
Michelangelo: Oh yeah, Mr. Spikey-Pants? Well, you’re the one who should be saying....uh...farewell to, um... to yourself!
Raphael: (Being sarcastic) Oh yeah, Mikey. That got 'im.

Casey Jones: Now that's what I call crashing a party!

[turtles van driving scene]

Casey (while setting the table with April and looks up): Yo, what do you know? Mistletoe. Ain't we supposed to kiss or something?

Casey: Hey, hey, check it out. More mistletoe! (he puckers his lips and April walks away) April, wait up! (the mistletoe moves over to April) More mistletoe. There's no way out. You gotta kiss me. (April backs up; Casey and the mistletoe move forward; April goes around Casey, the mistletoe follows her) Look, it's following us. It's a sign. A sign from above.
April (taking down the mistletoe): Exactly. (April and Casey look at a pole with Raph and Angel sitting on top of it with ropes that extend over to April and Casey; Raph grins)
Raph (waving): Hiya, April. Whatcha got there? Mistletoe? (he chuckles)
April: Jones, did you put them up to this?
Casey: No! Never! Uh, maybe.
