Barney the Dinosaur[edit]

  • A towel, please. Thank you, Marcella. ( giggles ) Oh, thank you, Cody. It's so nice to have a shower after a long trip. Oh, right. I just love to pretend.
  • It's beautiful. Whoops. Uh-uh, sorry.
  • Ralphie, a little guitar music, please.
  • Well, actually, I think it it was a flea.
  • ( evil groans ) Huh? Oh, no! No! I gotta get driving lessons. Oh, I'm fine. Wait for minute. I don't know.
  • Well, don't give up. ( snaps ) When, the rain stops, we can look around some more, and then, maybe, we can find it.

[first lines]
[During this part of the song, we see a green minivan drive through the countryside and the title kicks in. In the minivan, a dad drives, a mom looks at a map, a girl holds Barney (as a doll), another girl stitches lanyard, while a boy plays on his GameBoy, and a baby sits in his seat, silently]
Marcella: Are we there yet?
Kate Newton: Your turn.
Colton Newton: No, not yet, Marcella.
Abigail "Abby" Newton: Oh, it's taking too long!
Cody Newton: [annoyed, to Abigail] What's your hurry?! They're dumping us for a whole week!
Colton: Oh, come on Cody, you're going to have a great time. You can help Grandpa with the farm chores, like, uh... "milking the chickens!"
Others: [laugh]
Cody: Get the doll out of my face!
[Marcella takes the Barney doll out of Cody's face, just as she and Abby are about to say...]
Abby/Marcella: Talk to the hand, cause the face ain't home leave a message at the tone: beep! [both laugh: What they were going to say was "Abby and Marcella can't come to the phone. Please leave a message after the beep... beep! If you are satisfied with your message, press one or hang up!"]
Cody: Oh, great! The good to do in town, and we'll probably miss it!
Grandpa: Delilah, the kids are here, shake a leg now!
Grandma: They're here? Oh, my goodness! Geroge.

Cody: Gee, no Barney. Maybe, you're NOT trying haed enough.

[Marcella and Abby keep closing their eyes, while Cody just crosses his arms and laughs. Suddenly, the shower turns on a little ominously. Cody becomes concerned. The tub sinks to the floor. Marcella and Abby open their eyes, and the water turns off. Cody cautiously and slowly reaches the shower curtain to open it, and Barney pops out of the curtains. Cody falls to the floor in surprise, and Marcella and Abby are amazed.]

Barney: A towel, please. [steps out of the shower, Marcella gives him a towel] Thank you, Marcella.
Marcella: He knows my name.
Barney: Oh, and thank you, Cody. It's so nice to have a shower after a long car trip.
Barney: All right. I just love to pretend.
Marcella: Hey, why don't we go play in the barn?

Cody: Okay, Barney, you're really here because my imagination, you're about to disappear.
Abby/Marcella: Cody!

Cody: I... do NOT... believe in you. [looks around, sees that Barney isn't there, and then laughs, but Barney then comes from behind him]
Barney: That's okay, Cody. I believe in you. [hugged him]
Cody: [grumpy] Barney the Dinosaur is NOT in this barn! [late at night after dinner] I'm telling you Barney's in YOUR barn!
Grandma: I know. Cody, you told us at dinner.
Grandpa: Several times.
Cody: Listen to me, Grandma, Grandpa. Barney the Dinosaur is in YOUR barn! Isn't he?

Grandma: Now, Cody, I did.

Cody: I wish! WISH! I wish could have are real adventure this summer! Do things that no one else has DONE before! That would be cool! How's that for a wish, Barney? Barney? Barney? [turns around to see Barney has disappeared, and sighs; to himself] Man, I must be lose it!

Cody: What's going on here?
[Barney whimpering]
Barney: Well! Uh, Um, To tell you the truth! I, Uh.
Marcella: Hey, maybe it'll Grandma will know.
Abby: Let's go ask her.
Barney: Oh, Okay. [Cody spins Barney around then his farmer suit disappear back to himself again] Wait for me! [Barney runs out of the barn after the kids]
