  • [catchphrase] Hokey smoke!
  • What's the point? I guess the world just doesn't need us anymore, Bullwinkle.
  • [shivering] I could fly if I had to!
  • I guess I lost the knack. I'll never fly again.


  • [While flying over Washington D.C.] Boy, New York sure has changed a lot since my day. They even moved the White House here.
  • So, you see, Mr. President, all the trees in Frostbite Falls are gone. The birds have no place to put their things. The children have no place to build their tree house. I built them a stomp house, but they say it's just not the same. Help when you have time.
  • [After defeating Fearless Leader, Boris, and Natasha] Ahem. Good evening, America, Bullwinkle J. Moose here saying-- I've forgot my line.

Karen SympathyEdit

  • [to the narrator] Shut up.
  • [as she and Rocky enter the R.B.T.V. building] FBI! Freeze!
  • [while holding her gun] Alright, I want anyone in this room who's a Pottsylvanian spy to put your hands up, now!
  • [points her gun at Fearless Leader] That means you, too, Fearless Leader. Let me see your hands.

Rocky and Bullwinkle's Arch-RivalsEdit

Fearless LeaderEdit

  • Have you liquidated moose and squirrel? Did you use the C.D.I.? Are you talking to me? Are you talking to me? Then who else are you talking to? Are you talking to me? Well, I am the only one here, so you must be talking to me. AND YOU ARE LYING!!!!! Now catch moose and squirrel. And next time use the C.D.I. on them.


  • Smush them!
  • [while firing up the C.D.I.] It's time to say good-bye to Moose and Squirrel.


  • Boris, where did we go wrong? We've been trying to catch moose and squirrel ever since we first got drawn. We tried to stop them, shoot them, smash them, smush them, crush them, bash them, nash them, squish them. And they don't even know our names. I'm tried of all this, Boris. I don't want to be spy no more. Let's face it, darling, we suck. We'll never catch moose and squirrel.

The NarratorEdit

  • [after a green light from Hollywood takes him, Rocky and Bullwinkle to the real world] I'll be back for hiatus, Ma!
  • MAMA!!!!!
  • [as Boris and Natasha see a helicopter] Oh, damn. Never mind.
  • Yes, Boris and Natasha were back in business, but they have no way of discovering the route our heroes have taken, and-- [Boris snatches the map from the forth wall and hands it to Natasha] Hey! You can't do that!
  • [as Bullwinkle transform Fearless Leader, Boris and Natasha back into animated characters with the C.D.I.] And so the three villains were launched up into the Internet, where they would be heard from no more.
  • [as he, Rocky and Bullwinkle return to Frostbite Falls, where the trees grow back and the narrator reunites with his mother] Mama!

  • Oh, Sonny, shut up! [as she throws a pan at him]
  • [as the green light takes her son to the real world along with Rocky and Bullwinkle] Goodbye, Sonny!
  • [as she reunites with her son] Sonny boy!

Narrator: [over stock footage of various historical events in a parody of a newsreel] 1964, a crucial moment in American history: Lyndon Johnson is re-elected to the presidency by a landslide, the New York World's Fair introduces a bright new future...

[two janitors come by to clean up the mess]
Narrator: Eh, sorry about that, boys. [screen cuts to a card reading "TODAY", followed by shots of more recent live-action footage] A lot has changed in 35 years: Velcro has replaced the zipper, sneakers have lights on them, the Cold War is over, and The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show… is still canceled. [newsreel ends as a hobo yawns and exits the theater, cut to Frostbite Falls, Minnesota where things are looking lively with the locals] Frostbite Falls, Minnesota, once the beloved home of Rocky and Bullwinkle had been a thriving cartoon town.

Boris and Natasha: Moose and squirrel!
Fearless Leader: [tearing the message, but throws it on the floor] Moose and squirrel. How many times in the past they stood me and my dreams of glory? How many times have they foiled my plans with their bungling interference?
Boris Badenov: Uh, 28?
Fearless Leader: Quiet, idiot! They must never reach New York alive. Destroy them personally.
