Filburt: "And he ain't dressed for the occasion if ya know what I mean!"
Heffer: "Hehehe yep, you heard right he's completely... "naked!"
Filburt: "With no clothes on!"

"[After Rocko, standing in his house naked, hears Heffer and Filburt spying on him. Heffer and Filburt turn and run.]"

Filburt: Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy!

Ed Bighead: Rocko, what're you doing?

Bev Bighead: Oh, shut up and mind your own business, Ed.
Ed Bighead: But, Bev! They're, well... *Nude*!

[Excited, Bev grabs the binoculars from Ed]

Bev Bighead:Oh, Ed! Oh, you're right! Yes! This is disgusting!

[in whisper]

Bev Bighead: Quick, Ed, get the telescope out of the hall closet!

Peaches: I am the Dark Underlord, the Prince of Doom, the King of Eternal Torment! I am Pain! I am Evil! They call me... Peaches!
Heffer: Peaches?
Peaches: (normal voice) Would ya let me finish? (dark voice) You will rot in torment forever! (laughs)
Heffer: Peaches?
Peaches: (normal voice) Okay. Heffer. Pffffft. Oh, that's a good name, I -- (slaps self) What was I saying? (flips up fiery pit scene to reveal nothing) Just forget it.
Heffer: But wait, I though that --

Rocko: (reading another sign) "Enjoy Nature's Splendor."
Rocko and Heffer: (seeing the Conglom-O Mall) Oooooooooooh, splendor.

Mr. Smitty: I want my car back and I want it, NOW!
Impound Lot Director: Let's take a look at this chart, shall we?
[He sternly pulls down the chart and Mr. Smitty frowns.]

Heffer: We're home!
[Rocko, Heffer, Filburt and Spunky run out of the house cheering.]
Filburt: Let's frolic innocently in nature!
Rocko: Um, fellas?
Heffer and Filburt: Yeah?
Rocko: I don't think we're in the '90s anymore.
