Rocky J. Squirrel
- What's the point? I guess the world just doesn't need us anymore, Bullwinkle.
- [shivering] I could fly if I had to!
- I guess I lost the knack. I'll never fly again.
Bullwinkle J. Moose
- [While flying over Washington D.C.] Boy, New York sure has changed a lot since my day. They even moved the White House here.
- So, you see, Mr. President, all the trees in Frostbite Falls are gone. The birds have no place to put their things. The children have no place to build their tree house. I built them a stomp house, but they say it's just not the same. Help when you have time.
- [After defeating Fearless Leader, Boris, and Natasha] Good evening, America. Bullwinkle Moose here saying--Forgot my line.
- Have you liquidated Moose and Squirrel? Did you use the CDI? Are you talking to me? Are you talking to me? Then who else are you talking to? Are you talking to me? Well, I am the only one here, so you must be talking to me. AND YOU ARE LYING!!!!! Now catch Moose and Squirrel. And next time use the CDI on them.
- Smush them!
- [while firing up the CDI] It's time to say good-bye to Moose and Squirrel.
- Boris, where did we go wrong? We've been trying to catch Moose and Squirrel ever since we first got drawn. We tried to stop them, shoot them, smash them, smush them, crush them, bash them, nash them, squish them. And they don't even know our names. I'm tried of all this, Boris. I don't want to be spy no more. Let's face it, darling, we suck. We can never catch Moose and Squirrel.

- Narrator: Sorry about that, boys. [screen cuts to a card reading "TODAY", followed by shots of more recent live-action footage] A lot has changed in 35 years: Velcro has replaced the zipper, sneakers have lights on them, the Cold War is over, and The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show is still cancelled. [newsreel ends as a hobo yawns and exits the theater, cut to Frostbite Falls, Minnesota where things are looking lively with the locals] Frostbite Falls, Minnesota, once the beloved home of Rocky and Bullwinkle had been a thriving cartoon town. [crossfade to a "third-world country version" of Frostbite Falls] Now, it was crippled by year's of reruns.

- Boris Badenov: Uh, twenty-eight?
