Jessie: On the wind!
James: Past the stars!
Meowth: Right in your ears!
Jessie: Bringing chaos at a breakneck pace!

~Team Rocket Motto, Sinnoh

Jessie: To protect us from all of this chafing and itching.
James: Maybe it'll stop all of Jessie's...complaining.

Meowth: My nose feels like it's on fire!
Jessie: Meowth, you don't have a nose.
Meowth: Huh? My nose! What happened? The stink dissolved it off my face! ...Oh yeah. I almost forgot - da cartoonist never gave me a nose.

[Ash looks up a Rattata just after one tries to steal from his bag]
Dexter: The Forest Pokémon: Rattata. It likes cheese, nuts, fruits, and berries.
Ash: Yeah, but this isn't a forest. It's an open field!
Dexter: It also comes out into open fields to steal food from stupid travelers.
Ash: That means that I'm stupid?

Giovanni: Team Rocket, blast off at the speed of light, surrender now or prepare to fight! ATTENTION!
Jessie and James: At your service!
Meowth: MEEEEEEEEOWTH too, sir!
Giovanni: Everything is proceeding EXACTLY as I've foreseen, the Pokémon-crazy sweeping the WORLD! I want the three of you to catch me the RAREST of ALL Pokémon - Ash Ketchum's Pikachu!
Meowth: We've been trying...
Giovanni: Oh, then TRY HARDER! And you BETTER steal Pikachu away from them soon, because the TV show is about to launch, and the Game Boy game, and the toys, the card game, comic books! Soon THE WHOLE WORLD will be looking for Pikachu! Do anyone ELSE know about our plans?
James: Only a bunch of kids who were lucky enough to get their hands on this video.
Giovanni: Well, if they don't play the Game Boy games or watch the TV show, THEY'LL NEVER CATCH PIKACHU! [evil laugh]

Meowth: We never get a break!
Jessie: Yes we do! James broke the ship!
James: And now I'd like a break for a short nap.

Giovanni: You fools had better have a very good reason for calling me this early in the morning.
Jessie: Yes, but first, we must do the introduction.
Giovanni: What?! [Jessie & James say their introduction over the phone] Nitwits! How dare you annoy me with your nonsense! Don't EVER bother me like this again! [hangs up]

Jessie: We've brought you a rare and valuable Pokémon - Togepi!
Giovanni: What exactly does this Pokémon do?
Jessie: Uh... what does this thing do?
James: Uh, well...
Meowth: Good question...
Jessie: Well, it would certainly make a handsome paperweight!
Giovanni: YOU FOOLS! You search for months and bring me this thing??! You are total incompetents!

Meowth: James would know 'cos he was born with a silver spoon in his mouth!
James: Yes, but we had to get rid of it to make room for my foot...

Jessie: You'll pay for this, Cassidy! Who does she think she is?!
James: It's alright, Jessie. They're bad guys.

Jessie: (To Misty) Listen to me, kid. When you get involved with the opposite sex, you're only asking for trouble.
James: Yes, and that's the kind of trouble...I stay out of.
Meowth: Youse two don't need da opposite sex cuz you got each other! Hahaha!
Jessie: What does THAT mean!?
James: Not funny!

Meowth: Did you see that?
Jessie: Do you think I'm blind?
James: That would explain the hair.

Jessie: Did you notice that Grumpig Pokémon James?
James: If you mean it looks like my ex-fiance then yes.

Meowth: Where did [James] get that outfit? (A very 'camp' looking Moltres costume)
Jessie: I think it came right out of his own closet...

Jessie: We're slowing Lugia down! The three of us are too heavy!
James: Let's try Weight Watchers!
Jessie: It's too late for that!
Meowth: I heard its never too late if you really STICK WITH THE PROGRAM!!

Jessie: So then we're not bad.
James: That's good!
Meowth: But what if the boss finds out?
James: Thats bad!
Jessie: Then we'll start our own team.
James: Thats good!
Meowth: But we got no money.
James: (sadly) That's bad.
Jessie: Then we'll just steal some!
James: That's good! [short pause] Or is that bad? Ohhhh...

Jessie: I can't wait for the chance to show you 3 little goody-goodies what losers you are. You don't stand a chance against us. We're going to win that championship belt!
James: And after we do, you can find us at the all-you-can-eat buffet table.
Jessie: [punches James in the head] Will you be quiet?!
Ash: It's them again!
Misty: Team Rocket!
Jessie: How did you ever guess?
[she removes her disguise, revealing that she is on James' shoulders]
Jessie: To protect the world from devastation.
James: To unite all peoples within our nation.
Jessie: To denounce the evils of truth and love.
James: [turns red in the face] To extend our reach to the st-- Oh! I CAN'T TAKE IT!
Jessie: Team Rocket, blast off at the speed of light!
James: [slowly faints, unable to hold Jessie's weight any longer] Surrender now...! Surrender now, or prepare to...! Prepare to...! [cries]
Jessie: Uh, we're not finished!
[both she and James get back on their feet]
Jessie: As I was saying, we're going to be the winners around here.
James: And you can bet your buffet on that.

Jessie: Prepare for trouble, and a dance!
James: I'm wearing tights instead of pants!

Meowth: [while blasting off] What kind of insensitive losers would even try to steal it [Pikachu] anyway? (realizes) Oh yeah, we would.
Team Rocket: Team Rocket's blasting of AGAIN!!! (ping)

Meowth: I got da rope! I'm gonna tie it to dis tree, then t'row da rest down to you, so youse guys can climb up it. (looks down into the pit) Dey're sleepin'! Takin' a nap! Snorin' away like a couple of Snorlax while I do all da woik! Yo! Wake up! Great! I'm t'rough savin' your butts! Get yerselves outta dis mess! Dey are the two lamest, dumbest, stupidest... 'I'm Jessie! I'm James!' They never do anything right. (Jessie and James climb out of the pit and lift him up.) Hey! What are you, crazy?! Put me down!
James: Why are you saying all those things?
Jessie: Why are you telling everybody we're losers?!
Meowth: Because you are.
James: Like, no way!
Jessie: We're cool!
James: We're the man!
Meowth: Look up "Loser" in the dictionary, and you'll find a big picture of the two of youse!
Jessie: Is it a nice picture?

Giovanni: Take the Pikachu, and order it to attack MechaMewtwo.
James: Why don't you do it, Boss?
Giovanni: I can't have a Pokémon battle with myself, you idiot!

Cassidy: Jessie.
Butch: And John.
James: (angry) You said it wrong on purpose!

Jessie: Cut the drama and rustle up some breakfast!
James: But Jessie - the bread is all toasted!
Jessie: Then butter it!
James: We're all out of butter!
Jessie: Then steal some!
James: Your expectations are too high!

Rocket Grunt: What are your orders, sir?
Dr. Nanba: The same thing I always order! Fish sticks!
Rocket Grunt: No, I mean what do you want us to do regarding the mysterious Pokémon?

James: The people of Viridian City will be sorry they ever saw this face!
Meowth: We're all sorry to see your face!

James: Why didn't we do this in the first place?
Jessie: We have to fill a half-hour!

James: The boss even gave us a new mission!
Jessie: Yeah I don't know where this Antarctica place is but it sounds really beautiful!

Jessie and James: (looking at a picture of Scyther) There goes Alakazam.

Meowth: What's a Passport?
James: Well, I have no idea what kind of pass he's talking about, but Meowth, please stop calling me sport.

Misty: If we follow these eggs, they'll lead us right to Team Rocket.
Ash: Hehe, they're pretty dumb, aren't they?
Brock: If they're so dumb, how come they have the egg?
Ash: I guess you have a point there.

(Ash & co. drink tea during Team Rocket's introduction)
Misty: This show is pretty boring.
Ash: It'll get canceled pretty soon.

Brock: I could write a book about the secrets of love and heartache!
Misty: I guess then that book would be your autobiography?

Gary: You're so pathetic that even your Pikachu feels sorry for you! I've never seen anyone as pathetic as you!
Misty: Have you tried a mirror?!

Brock: Right there, a beautiful girl was right there!
Ash: Huh? I don't see one...
Misty: (pulls on his lips) Just turn around!
Ash: Please, only one of us can hallucinate at a time...

[from "Where Are Thou, Pokémon?"]
Misty: [referring to the Nidoran trainers] They're not mature enough to admit it, but they really like each other!
Tracey: You know what? That's exactly just like you and Ash!
Misty and Ash: YOU MUST BE CRAZY!

Misty: If you beat this guy, they might even make a statue of you!
Ash: One of me isn't enough for you?

Misty: This isn't funny - I look like a cartoon character!
Ash: A cartoon character? Like that would ever happen!

Ash: Wow, imagine - Brock married?
Misty: [quietly] You and I will be married someday too.
Ash: Mm-hmm. [short pause] HUH?!

Ash: I need more hamburgers! Fast!
Misty: I need less you.

[From "Mewtwo Strikes Back"]
Brock: I didn't know Vikings still existed...
Ash: They mostly live in Minnesota!

Jessie: Prepare for more trouble then you've ever seen!
James: And make it double, we're on the big screen!
Ash: I'll have to catch this on video, I'm in a hurry, and the weather's looking bad!
Jessie: It has been bad, isn't that always our luck? Well, our luck's changed and our ship has finally come in!
(Ash's friends boat flies up behind them)

Ash: I'm just dying for a cheeseburger!
Misty: No way! I wanna eat at a nice restaurant!
Ash: Cheeseburgers are nice!

Ash: (trying to explain to Misty why he noticed her sisters instead of her) I didn't see you for a while, so I thought you didn't like me anymore. I was stunned just now! When I saw how beautiful you've become, I was speechless!
Narrator: Warning: These are just excuses.
Misty: Flattery will get you nowhere. Here. (hands him a cob of corn)
Ash: What's this?
Misty: My treat.
Narrator: Actually, flattery works just fine.
Ash: It's like you had plastic surgery!
Misty: Quit while you're ahead!

Delia: Do you remember to change your underwear every day?
Ash: (annoyed) Yes!

Ash: Team Rocket, prepare for trouble! On second thought, make it double!
Jessie: To protect the world from devastation?
James: To unite all people within our nation?
Ash: Maybe you think I'm a little too "brash", but the master is here and my name is "Ash"!
Pikachu: Pika!
Ash: My Pokémon travel faster than the speed of light. Surrender now, or you're in for a fight!
Meowth: Meowth, that's right!

Misty: Hey, if she's making your life so miserable, how come you're carrying her picture around?
Joe: I hate the way she treats us, but I like the way she looks.
Ash: Yeah, and not like some other girls who treat you bad and look even worse.

Giselle: I'm the top student in the beginning class of the most exclusive prep school in the world, Pokémon Tech. It's sad that others aren't blessed with my beauty, my talent, my humble attitude. People call me a star, but I'm just Giselle.
Jessie: [Looking through binoculars] I think she's even more conceited than we are.
James: Yes, but she's awfully cute isn't she?
Meowth: Not as cute as Meowth.
Jessie: [punching Meowth] You're in the way.
James: [punching Meowth] Stop bothering us!

Misty: I wish Ash could have heard that story.
Ash (in a disguise as "Ashley"): Oh, I heard it.
Misty: What?
Ash: Please don't stare at me like that, I'm a very shy little girl!

Jessie: That festival is waiting and I can smell money.
Meowth: I can smell corn dogs.

Jessie: (to James) Hmmm, this kid looks a lot like you.
James: You think so? He looks pathetic.
Meowth:That's what she means, James.

Meowth: Pikachu says that it won't change. If it's going to beat the Raichu, it's going to do it just as it is.
Jessie: You mean it's going to fight AGAIN as a Pikachu?
Meowth: (tearing up) It's going to fight in the name of ALL Pikachu! It will defend its honor and Ash's!
James: (similarly touched) Oh dear...THAT'S MAGNIFICENT!

Team Rocket: (singing) You know us as Team Rocket and we fight for what is wrong. We're tired of our Motto so we thought we'd try a song!
Jessie: Jessie!
James: James!
Both: The speed of light, prepare to fight!
Meowth: Meowth! That's Riiight.
James: I am the handsome one!
Jessie: I'm the gorgeous one!
Both: Looking good is lots of fun!
We get some things wrong but we keep rolling along.
(instrumental and funny pictures)
All: We want to capture Pikachu, we hope to do it soon! And when we do we'll be the new stars of this...CARTOOOOOON!!!! ~Team Rocket's song.

(after the song)
Jessie: (to Meowth) We need to work on your timing. You were late on the last verse.
Meowth: But my pitch was poifect!

[from "The Crystal Onix!"]
Tracey: Hey! How'd you get out of those traps so fast?
James: That is a secret you shall never know!
Jessie: Even the writers can't figure it out.

Meowth: [an explosion] Somebody busted in!
Ash:Prepare for trouble.
Misty: And you can make that triple.
Brock: To protect the world from devastation.
Ash & Misty: To unite all peoples within our nation.
Jessie: This was just...
James: ...too good...
Meowth: ...to last.
Ash: You've got that right.
Pikachu: Pika!
Misty: We're defending the beauty of truth and love.

[From "Reversing the Charges"]
May: Hey! That's my egg!
James: Ahh! That's my Mime Jr.
Jessie: We're here for Elekid and Pikachu.
James: TIME OUT! [comes running out of Team Rocket's Golem machine]
May: [runs up to James] I'll trade you.
James: That sounds like a plan.
May: Here you go!
James: Thanks.
May & James: Bye!
James: Ahh! My Mime Jr. is back where it belongs.
May: [giggling] I got my egg back.
James: Now where were we?
Meowth: We were about to take Elekid and Pikachu.

Old Woman/Ghastly: I've been watching you. You're up to no good! And there's no good in your future!
James: Who? The police, the sheriff, the FBI?
Old Woman/Ghastly: I see a young and beautiful woman who will lead you to a cruel fate.
James: I don't need a fortune teller to know that. Some woman is ALWAYS causing me trouble! It's a curse...
Jessie: [stares suspiciously towards James] WHO exactly do you mean?

Brock: Rejected by the one girl I loved. I'll never find another like her again".
Ash: Don't worry Brock, you'll find plenty of other girls to reject you.

Meowth: Hey! It's the twerps! They're walking through a stream coming from that wacky building.
Jessie: There must be some value Pokémon inside.
James: And the only way to get there must be by wading.
Meowth: But they're walking through the water.
James: They're wading.
Meowth: No, they're walking!
Jessie: They're wading!
Meowth: How can they be wading if there walking?!
James: They're walking through the stream?
Meowth: Yeah?
Jessie & James: Then they're wading!

Ash: What is your strategy?
Misty: My strategy is...RUN!

Cassidy: Get a move on, Butch!
Butch: It's Butch, ya got it! Oh, wait! That's what you said!

Jessie: Wasn't that Cassidy and what's-his-name?
James: It's Butch, he's a little sensitive about that.

Jessie: Must you always barge into our business?
Wobbuffet: Wobba wobba wobba wobba wobba!
Jessie: I was afraid you'd say that.

Jessie: "Who cares if we fail to catch a Pokemon this time?"
James: "We'll get another chance to fail next time!"

Jessie: "Sometimes, it's better not to ask questions."
Meowth: "Hey, I got a question it's better I shouldn't ask, Do ya tink we'll get a bigger part in da next movie?"

Jessie: This couldn't have worked better if we'd planned it.
James: If we'd planned it, it wouldn't have worked at all!

Jessie: What kind of losers would come here?
James: We came here didn't we?

Misty: Why are you helping out?
Ash: You're bad guys.
James: Well... it's really quite simple.
Meowth: If anything happen to you, we'd be out of show business!

Jessie: Minimal effort with maximum profit! That's the Team Rocket way!
James: Ooooo...I love us!

Jessie: Is that what I think it is?
James: Could be... but I don't know what you're thinking, and I don't know what it is!

Jessie: I hate people who have to be the center of attention!
James: Especially when they take the attention away from us!

James: If we can't break it down...
Jessie: We'll just go around!

Jessie: James, talk your way out of this.
James: We certainly wouldn't have done it if we'd thought we'd get caught. 

Misty: Thanks for your support! Bye, Team Rocket!
Team Rocket: [holding flag with giant red "R"] HUH!?
Meowth: How did they know it was us?!
Jessie: Lucky guess!

Jessie: Good thing we ran into this sign.
James: Yeah. Maybe our luck is changing.
Jessie & James: It's a good sign.

[Ash and Misty start to fight]
Brock: Come on, you guys. You two don't really wanna stand around and argue with each other.
Ash & Misty: Yes, we do!

Ash: We should have known that Team Rocket would mess things up.
Jessie: What did you say?
Ash: Well, that's the truth.
James: Nothing makes me angrier than being told the truth!

Jessie: Today, you're going to have to do what I tell you to!
James: What makes that different than any other day?

Misty: Were you online the entire night?
Ash: Yep.
Misty: Huh? Aren't you exhausted?
Ash: Not a bit, and I couldn't sleep anyway since I was thinking about my battle with Gary.

Ash: [in mind] I got to win this last badge here! I'm on a hot streak!
Brock: Wow! Ash is all fired up.
Misty: [not convinced] Yeah... [Pikachu lights a small fire near Ash's foot] Holy smoke, put out that fire!
[a brief pause and Ash stands in a determined stance before noticing his foot is on fire]
Ash: Hot! Hot! Hot! Hot! Hot! Hot! Hot!

[Ash and his team emerge from their snow cave]
Misty & Brock: Ash! Up here! [Ash looks up to see Misty, Brock and Brock's Onix up on a cliff]
Ash: It's good to see you!
Misty: [after Onix lifts Ash and his team up] Ash, how did you manage to survive in the blizzard?
Ash: We dug a snow cave just like Brock said.
Brock: Ha. It's a good thing we didn't have to freeze like the one I dug!
Misty: Onix dug into an underground hot spring. You wouldn't believe comfortable we are!

Jesse, James, and Meowth: [after Skarmory pops their balloon five minutes into the show] We're blasting off already?!

[Ash & co. and Team Rocket are in a rail car speeding very fast]
Ash: Stop this car!
Jessie: I'm afraid we can't do that.
James: [holds up the brake lever] We can't stop, the brake's broken.
Ash: Give me a "break".

Jessie: Team Rocket is not something to be made fun of, but if you're going to do it, do it right!
James: It's to "unite" our peoples within our nation, not "ignite!"

[From "Pikachu Revolts"]
Jessie: There's only room for one Team Rocket!
Butch: Then prepare for trouble.
Jessie: Huh? You're the ones who should prepare for trouble!
Cassidy: You two don't even know how to say the motto!
James: You just made your trouble, double!
Butch: I'm the one who has the next line!
Jessie: To protect the world from devastation!
Cassidy: To infect the world with devastation!
James: To unite all peoples within our nation!
Butch: To blight all peoples in every nation!
Jessie: To denounce the evils of truth and love...

Butch: Wrath to the stars above!
Jessie: JESSIE!
Cassidy: CASSIDY!
James: JAMES!
Butch: BUTCH!
Jessie: Team Rocket blasts off at the speed of light!
Cassidy: Team Rocket's circling Earth all day and night!
James: Surrender now or prepare to fight!
Butch: Surrender to us now or you'll surely lose the fight!

[From "The Old Berate And Switch"]
Cassidy: Prepare for trouble, it's a brand new day!
James: We're making it double anyway!
Cassidy: Let's see if I can remember my lines...an evil as old as the galaxy...
James: ...sent here to fulfill our destiny!
Cassidy: To denounce the goodness of truth and love...
James: To extend our reach to the stars above!
Cassidy: [sighs] Whenever there's a piece of pie in the universe...
James: Of pie?
Cassidy: Grr...I GOOFED IT! SO WHAT?!
James: Forget it.

[From "The Old Berate and Switch"]
Jessie: Prepare for trouble, we've shuffled the deck.
Butch: It's not my thing, but what the heck.
Jessie: An evil as old as the galaxy...
Butch: I'm doing this all from memory!
Jessie: To denounce the evils of truth and love...
Butch: To extend my arm with a big white glove!
Jessie: Jessie.
Butch: Uh...Butch.
Jessie: Cut! [kicks Butch] DO IT RIGHT OR DON'T DO IT AT ALL!!!!

Galactic Grunt Male: Well THOSE three were totally useless!
Galactic Grunt Female: We'll get the Adamant Orb NEXT TIME.

[From "Meowth's Scrafty Tactics", when Iris fails to attempt of catching Meowth]
Meowth: Lets get this straight, I do NOT want to be anyone's Pokemon! And no twerps ever gonna catch me, see?
Iris: Okay, sorry!
Meowth: Alright, but even so, I'm gonna help you lugs!
Pikachu: Pika!
Ash: Great! Let's go!

James: (Commenting on a PokéBlock) It has a hint of, how you say... jet fuel, with the aftertaste of burning truck tires, and for some strange reasons I cannot quite swallow it.
Ash: Is that good?
Brock: What's your... conclusion then, sir?
James: It is my conclusion that this PokéBlock should be destroyed before anyone eats any of it by mistake.

James: No one likes a person who doesn't know when to quit!
May: Then that explains why everyone hates you three!
Team Rocket: ...You didn't have to get personal, you know.

[After Team Rocket captures all the Pokémon in the vicinity]
Ash: Pikachu!
Brock: Vulpix!
Misty: Psyduck!
Psyduck: [from behind Misty] Psy?
Misty: Don't you even know the right way to get kidnapped?!

James: Who are you calling a couple?!
Meowth: And which one of us three did you completely ignore?!

[after being washed ashore]
Jessie & James: WE SURVIVED AGAIN!
Jessie: We're the completely invincible...
James: Unbeatable...
Jessie & James: TEAM ROCKET!

Jessie: We can make a phone call over there!
James: But we don't have any change!
Jessie: And without any change...
Jessie & James: Our luck sure has changed.

[From "Pokémon: Jirachi Wishmaker", after Jirachi granted Max' wish for lots of candy]
May: [Eye twitching] I knew something was funny, Max! this is all your fault with your stupid wish!
Max: So? what am I supposed to do now?
Brock: Jirachi can put the candy back where it came from.
May: That's it, Jirachi get rid of the problem.
Jirachi: Get rid? of problem? Ok.
May: [softly] Oh?
[Jirachi teleports May]
'Brock: AH!
Ash: She's gone!
Brock: Disappeared!

Max: Jirachi, what did you do with my sister?
May: [In the pile of candy] Mmm, help me! Someone get me out of here!

[From "Pokémon Ranger and the Temple Of the Sea"; Team Rocket has switched bodies so that their minds are in the wrong bodies]

Jessie: [in Meowth's body] Easy! Deny everything!

[From "Pokémon Ranger and The Temple of the Sea"; Team Rocket has switched minds and are in different bodies]
Ash: Team Rocket? What are you doing here?!
Jessie: [in Meowth's body] Ha! Prepare for trouble in all that you see!
James: [in Jessie's body] These earrings I'm wearing are so not me.
Jessie: [in Meowth's body] An evil as old as the galaxy...
James: [in Jessie's body] Sent here to fulfill our destiny!
Meowth: [in James' body] Meowth, that's me!
[short pause]
Jessie: [in Meowth's body] This isn't working...

[From "Pokemon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea"]
Jessie: We'll steal all those diamonds and pearls!
