Bilby: I gotcha! I gotcha! Okay, Ty, I'm it. Catch me if you can! Don't move, mate. I'll get help.
Nandu Gilli: Don't be afraid, Ty. I am Nandu Gilli the Bunyip Elder.
Ty: G'day, mate!
Nandu Gilli: It's time you knew the truth. Years ago, a great battle was fought over the fate of five mystic Talismans.
Boss Cass: My dinosaur ancestors were here first, you stinky furry mammal opportunists! Remember the comet! No! You mammals don't deserve to be at the top of the food chain!
Brian: Now!
Boss Cass: Now to restore the natural order once and for all... Oh! My head!
Brian: Give it up, Boss Cass!
Boss Cass: Never, never, never!! Bye-Bye! No!
Nandu Gilli: Those brave few who challenged Boss Cass were trapped in the dreaming.
Ty: Mum? Dad?
Nandu Gilli: Word grows that Boss Cass is seeking out the Talismans again. He must be stopped at all costs. It's up to you to find the Talismans before he does.
Ty: It's up to me to save my family!
Maurie: Oi! Ty! Are you okay?
Ty: Maurie? Ah, am I glad to see you! You're never going to believe what just happened! I was playing in the forest, when the ground suddenly… …and that's when you showed up.
Maurie: Struth! Sounds like you've got a fair dinkum adventure ahead of you, mate. Not that I'm inta that sorta thing. I'd rather be at home, watchin' the footy... But! I tell ya what. You do the adventuring, and I'll help you out where I can...

[Ty comes across Bull the giant Razorback pig and climbs onto his back]
Maurie: Your gonna sit… on that?! Are you feeling alright, mate?
Shazza: Awww, he's a big pussy cat when you get to know him, right Ty?
Ty: Yeah, right as rain! I'l use this, me Lassorang!

Maurie: Good news, Ty! I found you a second Boomerang!
Ty: Great! Where is it?
Maurie: You see that tree over there?
Ty: Yeah?
Maurie: It isn't there.
Ty: Right... well, where is it?
Maurie: It's on the other side of this place, you'l have to Run, Jump, Rang and Bite your way there!
Ty: oh, great!

Ty: G'day Shazza!
[Shazza jumps, banging her head on the front hood of her truck]
Shazza: Shivers! Oh, Ty, am I glad to see you! Can you help me out of a fix? Could you help keep these Blue tounges off my back while I fill up my water bottle?
Ty: No worries!
Shazza: Thanks, possum!
[Ty and Shazza are speeding through the outback in Shazza's Forbie]
Shazza: Hold on, Ty. I know a short cut!
Ty: I sure hope Ranger Ken got our message!
[A Chopper flys above them with Duke flying it and Ken leaning out giving a thumbs up]
Shazza: Speek of the Tasmanian Devil! [driving towards the edge of a waterfall]
Ty: I thought you said this was a short cut?
Shazza: It is! [drives off the waterfall]
Ty: Whooooooaaaaa!
[The Forbie ends up on a road where the Police are with Maurie]
Maurie: Ty, mate! You took your time! The little country town of Currawong is under attack! What nut would want to do this?
Sargent Bluey: The local security is in the thick of it! One of their mates is held up at the old Barracks!
Sly: Whoa! it's a shocker out there! Frills have breached the Northen River!
Ty: Sly, Shazza, I'm gonna need your help!
Shazza: You can count on us!
Sly: If we follow this road, it'l take us up to the old Barracks.
Ty: Ok, let's go!

Dennis: And it is with great pride that I cut this ribbon and officially declare open Barramudge Bush Rescue! It's a state of the art facility with an observation tower, research lab, airstrip and advanced headquarters.
Shazza: That's you, Possum!
Maurie: Good on ya, mate!
Ty: Dennis, you won't regret this. With Bush Rescue, we're ready to take on Boss Cass the next time he strikes.
Dennis: Well, it's not going to be that easy I'm afraid.
Ty: Why not?
Dennis: I just got word that Cass has set up his own country just so he can have diplomatic immunity!
Ty: You mean it's an immunity community?!
Shazza: That stinker!
Maurie: Diplomatic whatty?
Dennis: As the newly elected president of Cassopolis, Boss Cass and his diplomats are above the law as long as they're here on official Cassopolis business.
Ty: They can double park, open other people's mail and leave the milk out, and Sargent Bluey can't touch em!
Shazza: Which is why it's important for us to find out what his plans are, and catch him in the act!
[Buch Rescue alarm sounds]
Maurie: [sigh] Well, there's no time to stand around gas bagging. We've got work to do!

Ty: G'day Boonie! Whatcha doin?
Boonie: Nothing!
Ty: You miss your Mum, don't ya?
Boonie: Sometimes...
Ty: It's ok, mate...your Dad's worried sick about you. How about we get you home before it gets to late?
Boonie: Okay.

Buck: What in tarnation?! You've wiped out our extras!
Birrel: Why can't you leave us alone?!
Ty: But, but-
Buck: [furious] No buts about it, boy! You've messed up for the last time!!! Now youse get out.
Ty: Ok.
Nandu Gilli: Ty, Sharon. I have some bad news my friends.
Ty: Oh, no.
Shazza: What's happened?
Nandu Gilli: As Boss Cass was escaping from prison in your world, an acient evil decended into the dreaming. The Bunyips need your help Ty! You must come with me to, The Dreaming.
[Ty, Shazza and Nandu Gilli are teleported to The Dreaming. Shazza looks up.]
Shazza: What are those things?
Nandu: They are evil spirits known as Quinkan. they have infected this, the most sacred of places with their senseless war! So far we have been unable to cleanse them from the Dreaming.
Ty: No worries! I reckon I can take em on.
Nandu: That would lead to a needless sacrifice! Quinkan are mystical beings with undefinable powers, save for one weekness... only by using the rare Shadow Bunyip Stone, will you have the power to counter their evil. In the tower, it waits in the form of the Bunyip Gauntlet, for the one who can weild it's power.
Ty: You beauty!
Nandu: Mallian is guarding the Gauntlet until your arrival.
Shazza: Let's go, Possum!

Dennis: Ty, if you don't stop Maurie from winning the big race, he'll retire for good and never rejoin Bush Rescue. [Dennis sobs/cries] I just don't know what would happen.

[After Ty defeats the Hexaquin, Shazza runs up to him]
Ty: Shaz, we did it! Now we can get through to the rest of Southern Rivers!
Shazza: You did it, possum! Your so brave and manly.
Ty: Awww, C'mon Shaz. Your pretty manly too! [Shazza looks at him, anoyed] Er, I mean girly... er, I mean... er... I... I like you...
[Ty looks hopeless, Shazza rolls her eyes and smiles]
Shazza: C'mon Possum... [kisses him] We should check out the area past the gate, meet me at Dead Dingo Marsh.

Di: Oh! Ty! Oh, my little cub is here!
Bri: Don't fuss over the boy, love, you'll embarrass him! Good to see ya, Son!
Di: Sorry, Ty, it's just that when we heard you were back we were so excited.
Bri: Now we've made sure we got our wide range of Boomerangs, we figured you'd know what you need to fight the Quinkan.
Di: And I made you a Sandwich.

[After Ty defeats a strange Battle Robot, the driver reveals themself]
Ty: Fluffy?!
Fluffy: Who did you expect? The tooth Fairy?
[Sly Appears]
Sly: Hey Ty, look what I found! Isn't this Shazza's? [hands Ty a blue bracelet] Fluffy?! What do you two think you're doing?
Ty: I was trying to save Shazza, and then Lizzard-breath started what she couldn't finish!
Fluffy: Hey, Ratboy. It takes two to tango.
[Ty and Fluffy are about to fight but Sly stands between them to break them up]
Sly: Whoa! Hang on! Shazza's in trouble... and you're here fighting?! [Looks at Fluffy] And you! Quinkan are destroying everything! There are bigger at work here than old battles. Whether we like it or not, we're going to have to work together.
Fluffy: Mmmmm, I remember when we used to work together... we were great partners. What do you think, yellow rat?
Ty: Well he's got a point, I'm willing to try it if you are...for shazza.
Sly: Good! Now, do either of you know where the've taken Shazza?
[Ty Shrugs]
Fluffy: No... but I know who might...
Ty: Who?
Fluffy: Boss Cass.
Ty and Sly: Boss Cass?
Fluffy: He's been talking with the Quinkan, He might be able to help you out.
Sly: I'd better head back to town and let Dennis know what's happend. Will you two be alright?
Ty: We'l be okay, wount we, Fluffy?
Fluffy: I know I will be, where as you...well, we can only hope.

[Ty and Shazza walk around 'Dead Dingo Marsh' and find it to be deserted]
Shazza: Hey Ty, it looks like there arn't any Quinkan here. maybe their just in Burramudge?
[Quinkan are hiding in the bushes nearby]
Shazza: It's over, we've won!
Ty: Gee, I hope so Shaz.
[A Quinkan pushes him over while another grabs Shazza and throws her into a crate. Ty bites the Quinkan who pushed him and notices the others have kidnapped Shazza]
Ty: Or maybe it's just begining...hold on! I'm comming!

Redback Russ: We lost...this is all your fault, Redback Jack!
Redback Thorn: Yeah, you had nothing!
Redback Jack: Leave me alone, Rose!
Ty: Rose?
[Ty, Redback Jack and Redback Russ laugh]
Redback Thorn: I'l never live this down.

Redback Russ: Redback Jack! What do think you doing out there?
Redback Thorn: Yeah, you had him!
Ty: Fair go, Guys. It was just a bit of fun.
Redback Russ: Hey, this is between us and Belvedere!
Ty: Belvedere?
[Ty, Redback Thorn and Redback Russ laugh]

Sly: I wonder sometimes how things would of turned out if I was the one raised by Billbies, and you were the one that worked for Cass. I mean, would the Quinkan have invaded? Would you have ended up with Shazza?

Ridge: I've been thinking, Tiger. If we're going to be working together, you'll need your own catchphrase. How about... "You've been Bush Rescued"... or "This case is all TYed up"?

Redback Russ: There's no way I'm telling!
Redback Thorn: C'mon Redback Russ, Fair's fair!
Redback Jack: Yeah. C'mon, Cyril.
Ty: Cyril?
[Ty, Redback Thorn and Redback Jack burst into hysterical laughter as Redback Russ sulks]
Redback Russ: I'm going to cry...
