Drugs don't stand a chance against these guys!(taglines)

Bugs Bunny[edit]

  • What's up, Doc, is your life, if you don't get off those drugs.
  • Listen, kid. This is the past, and the past is in black and white. Get it?
  • Okay, you win. You got me dead to rights. I'm not a cop, I'm a rabbit, but just because I got long ears doesn't mean there's nothing in between 'em.
  • [encountering Michael in a alley] What's dis? [picks up something Michael had dropped by a trashcan] A joint? So, what's the big attraction?
  • Look who's talking.

Michael[edit]

  • What's wrong? What's happening?
  • I can quit if I want to! I'm in charge of my life!
  • [throwing the drugs away] Corey! Don't you ever, EVER, ever do this stuff! [Corey: But you did it!] I was a dope. I was wrong.
  • [last lines; to Corey] C'mon, sis. Let's go talk to Mom and Dad.

Others[edit]

  • Michaelangelo: Cowabunga, dude! How did you ever get so totally cool?
  • Daffy Duck: [about Michael's future] Ah, yes, I can see it all! Well, some of it.
  • Simon: I hate to suggest this, but my guess would be... marijuana, an unlawful substance used to experience artificial highs.
  • Theodore: [shocked after discovering that Michael stole Corey's piggy bank] I can't believe it! Corey's own brother?
  • Gordon 'ALF' Shumway: The sound of a breaking piggy... if ever I've heard one.
    • Garfield: Two sounds you can't miss: The sound of a breaking piggy, and the sizzle of hot lasagna.
  • Smoke: Relax, he's only cloth and stuffing. Besides, that bear doesn't get around much. I do. Trust me. Open the box.
  • Baby Piggy: Hey, this isn't romantic, it's not even pretty, and most important, I DON'T LIKE IT IN HERE!
  • Kermit: There's nothing cool about a fool on drugs!
  • Huey, Dewey, Louie: [altogether] Just believe in yourself!

Dialogue[edit]

[Michael sees himself on his deathbed]
Michael: It's- it's me. This is my future?
Daffy Duck: It is if you don't get off those drugs!
[Some cartoon characters visit and help Michael]
Gordon 'ALF' Shumway: You use, you lose!
Baby Piggy: Listen to us! We care about you, Mikey!
Bugs Bunny: What's up, doc, is your life, if you don't cut it out.
Kermit: There's nothing cool about a fool on drugs!
Huey, Dewey, Louie: [altogether] Just believe in yourself!
Michaelangelo: Yeah! You're excellent just the way you are! Without drugs!
Michael: [scared] HOW DO I GET OUT OF HERE?
[A door back to Michael's room appears in front of him and the characters]

Gordon 'ALF' Shumway: [after emerging from a picture frame on Corey's dresser after her piggy bank is stolen] You wanna help track down the thief, Garfield?
Garfield: [is a lamp] Hey, going through life with a blue lampshade is work enough. Wake me when the lasagna comes.
Gordon 'ALF' Shumway: [yanks the lamp attachment off Garfield] Let me rephrase that: do you wanna help, or do you wanna be lunch?
Garfield: [salutes and climbs off the dresser] My luck to be stuck on a dresser with a pushy alien.

Theodore: What's all this for?
Alvin: Either someone's conducting a major chemistry experiment, or this is a serious no-no.
Gordon 'ALF' Shumway: Toto, something tells me we're not in cartoon territory anymore.

Michael: [Alf shows Michael what he will look like in the future, via a mirror] Who is that?
Gordon 'ALF' Shumway: Well, it's not Freddy Krueger. This is you. Pretty pitiful, huh?

[Bugs takes out a blue block with a red button on it. He presses it and drops it on the ground. It turns into a time machine]
Michael: A time machine?
Bugs Bunny: I borrowed it from some coyote.

Gordon 'ALF' Shumway: That kid's got a one-way ticket to Nowheresville.
Theodore: Simon suspects drugs.
Pooh: Oh, my!
Slimer: Ooh! That's bad moves!
Alvin: Michael needs our help!
Slimer: Then let's help him!

[Michael and Smoke have fallen through an open manhole into a sewer. They see Michaelangelo of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles]
Michaelangelo: Cowabunga, dude! How did you ever get so totally cool?
Michael: What are we doing down here?
Michaelangelo: Like, you fell through a radical hole, dude! You could've avoided it, but you weren't thinking. Come to think of it, that's a lot of your problem.
Michael: What problem?
Michaelangelo: Drugs, bud. Your brain must be, like, really messed up.

Michael: [throwing the drugs away] Corey! Don't you ever, EVER, ever do this stuff!
Corey: But you did it!
Michael: I was a dope. I was wrong.
Corey: Then stop! Please, Michael.
Michael: I don't know if I can.
Smoke: Face it, kid. We're buddies for life, whether you like it or not.
Corey: You don't have to quit on your own. Talk to Mom and Dad! They'll help! I'll help!
Smoke: Listen to me, Mikey.
Michael: I think I've listened to you long enough.
[He throws Smoke out a window, sending him into a garbage truck]
Smoke: [last words before his defeat] You can't get rid of me this easy! I'll be back, and you can bet on it!
Michael: He's right, you know. He will try to come back.
Corey: And when he gets here, we'll be ready for him. Right, guys?
All Cartoons: [on a poster] Right!
Pooh: [Micheal frees Pooh from the cabinet] Oh! Oh thank goodness! I thought I was going to miss something important.
[He jumps his way to the poster and magically joins the other cartoons]
Michael: C'mon, sis. Let's go talk to Mom and Dad.
