In the Baa-ginning [pilot]
- Ben Plotz: The farm! The Idyllic home of Farmer John - a man who loves farming so much his first name is "Farmer".
- Farmer John: Hands off my Sheepie!
- General Specific: Dagnabbit, man! This is a matter of national security! I must have that sheep! I'm in charge of a top secret agency, you know.
- Farmer John: Really? Which one?
- General Specific: I can't tell you. It's a secret.
- Farmer John: I won't tell.
- General Specific: But if I told you, it wouldn't be a secret!
- Farmer John: Well, if you won't tell, then I'll take my sheep and go home.
- General Specific: Ooh! I wouldn't do that if I were you! If you don't give me that sheep, my soldiers will return and destroy your farm! Destroy it!

Be Still My Bleating Heart [1.1]
- Ranting Swede: It-a makes me so mad! [takes out a meatball] Why do people call these meatballs? [throws the meatball off-screen] They're not balls! [starts bouncing a basketball] A ball, you can play with! A ball is fun, and bouncy, bouncy, bouncy! [takes out the meatball again] This, it just goes to pieces if you try to hit it with a tennis racket! It doesn't even hurt if you kick it! [the meatball splatters on the floor, and he kicks it] These are meat-LUMPS! These are lumps, not balls [a beach ball appears, and he throws them off-screen] I can't understand it! [saddening up] And it's my own people doing this. I hang my head in shame.
- General Specific: [over the phone]: We'll be right over!
- '[doorbell rings and Lady Richington answers it]'
- Lady Richington: How did you get here so fast?
- General Specific: We used the plot device!
- Plot Device: Hello!
- Ben Plotz: Suddenly, Sheep hears a voice, a voice that will change his live forever!
- Random Guy: Peanuts, get your peanuts here.
- Ben Plotz: Sorry, not that one, the next one, coming up.
- Lady Richington: Come along, Swanky.
- General Specific: Private Public, try to find me something for these inexplicable memory lapses I've been having.
- Private Public: I'll get on it, sir.
- General Specific: Thank you. Oh yes, and try to find me something for these inexplicable memory lapses I've been having.
- Private Public: Right away, sir.
- General Specific: Private Public, I have this nefarious desire to capture that sheep, but I can't remember why.
- Private Public: Maybe you should check the pilot script, sir.
To Bleat or Not to Bleat [1.2]
- Angry Scientist: What is it with you? Are you in the getting of the craziness thing?
- General Specific: Now is not the time to discuss this, Mad Scientist.
- Angry Scientist: First of all, I am not mad! I am angry! I am an angry scientist! That is what it is saying on my card of businesses!
- Private Public: The men are very excited about taking a day off from sheep-capturing to play this softball game, sir.
- General Specific: I'm happy to allow it, Private Public. Of course, seeing how we're members of a secret military organization, security was a priority. But I ensured that no one would know about today's game.
- Private Public: Except the opposing team.
- General Specific: Uh... There might be a slight change of plans, Private Public.
Belle of the Baah [1.3]
- [the Sultan's guards reach for the diamond to play catch]
- Sultan: Wait a second! Look, I like a good game of catch as much as the next sultan, but can't you use a softball, instead of my super valuable diamond?
- Tall Guard: But the diamond is so pretty.
- Sultan: That's why I'd hate for something to happen to it. Come on, use a softball.
- [pulls out a softball]
- Short Guard: But we really, really want to use the diamond! We'll be so careful. Please?
- Tall Guard: I'll be your best friend.
- Sultan: Okay, but no more than five minutes. I'm timing.

- Angry Scientist: Not a watch, you imbeciliated general person! I am talking about a time traveling machine that is abling us to travels anywhere in time.
- Private Public: If you can invent a time machine, why can't you invent a ray gun that works without a sheep?
