Austin: Actually, Tiki Beach isn't that way. I tricked him. I couldn't tell him where it really is because he just doesn't have the moves yet. He's got a lot to learn before he can surf Tiki Beach.

Pablo: We've looked everywhere.

Pablo: Where can it be? [takes off the necklace] Where is it? Where is Tiki Beach?!

'Uniqua: Look, ice.
Pablo: A shade of ice.
Tyrone: I guess this is why they call it the ice age.

[Repeated throughout when it seems they're almost ready.]
Tasha: There's just one teensy little thing...
"'"All: Empire Emperor

Tasha Comes the Ming Empire

""All"'": (Difficult:) Aha!

Pablo: Have look at this funny face.
Austin: If that's funny, I'm a Ming vase.
[Austin has never won a race before, but he is well prepared for the difficult "Race Around the World". He will compete with veteran racers Pablo, Tyrone, and Uniqua for his first gold medal.]
Austin: [singing] Racing day, oh racing day! It's not sausage casing day, today's the day! Let's race.
[Other day's it's not include doily making day.}
