Foreman Spike: Well, well, well, if it isn't Brooklyn's favorite failures, the Stupid Mario Brothers.
[The brothers march to Spike's seat, annoyed]
Luigi: [sarcastically] Oh, great. Spike's here.
Mario: Hey, Spike.
Spike: Yeah. [mockingly] "It's-a me!" [laughs] Ooh, yeah. [seriously] Tell me, have you even gotten one call since you two have left me to start your dumb company?
Luigi: As a matter of fact, Spike, we have. [raises and points at his phone]
Mario: Wow. Really?
Luigi: Uh, yeah. Our mom called, and she said, "Oh, boys, that's the best commercial I've ever seen!" And I said, "Thank you very much, mother, we're very proud of it." So, boom! [slams his phone, cracking the screen]
Spike: [laughs] Good luck running a business with this idiot. [throws a balled-up napkin at Luigi]
Mario: [catches the balled-up napkin; in tranquil fury] Say that again about my brother, and you're gonna regret it. [throws ball back at Spike's head]
Spike: Oh, yeah? [grabs Mario by the overall] Get this through your tiny brain, Mario: You're a joke, and you always will be. [throws Mario on the ground, leaves the money on the table, and walks out of the building]
Luigi: Are you insane? He's three times than your size.
Mario: Luigi, c'mon. Y'know, you can't be scared all the time.
Luigi: Mmm, you'd be surprised.

[In Peach's Castle, the Toad Council holds a meeting following Bowser's attack on the Snow Kingdom.]
Toad General: Council, your attention. Bowser has found the Super Star and is headed toward our kingdom. Its power will make him invincible. We will be destroyed.
[The Toads gasp]
Yellow Council Toad: Princess, what are we gonna do?!
Peach: [rising from her throne] I will not let him hurt you. We are going to stop Bowser!
Yellow Council Toad: How?! Look at us. [he and the others make puppy-dog eyes] We're adorable!
Peach: I'm going to convince the Great Kong Army to help us. Together, we'll annihilate that monster!
Toad General: Their mad king doesn't make alliances! The Kongs will never agree!
Peach: I can convince him. I'll leave for the Jungle Kingdom in the morning. [leaves]
Toad General: Good luck, Princess. For all our sakes.

[After Mario semi-successfully completes the training course]
Peach: Well, we have a long journey ahead of us, mustache.
Mario: But I didn't make it.
Peach: You almost did. No one gets it right away.
Mario: How many tries did it take you?
Peach: [her eyes widen] Oh, so many. I was not good at it. Worse than you. [flashes a guilty grin]
Mario: [not buying it] You got it right away, didn't you?
Peach: I got it right away, but I grew up here.
Mario: Okay, now you're just trying to make me feel better.
Peach: No. No. [pause] Is it working?
Mario: A little bit, yeah.

Mario: You don't seem like you're from here.
Fire Peach: I don't know where I'm from.
Mario: Really?
Fire Peach: Yep. My earliest memory is arriving. [flashback to Baby Peach entering the Mushroom Kingdom pipe and meeting the Toads] I was so lucky they found me. [as Peach grows up, shots of her fishing Cheep Cheeps and training with the Toads are shown] They took me in and raised me like one of their own. And when I was ready... [cut to Peach being crowned as the Toads cheer for her] they made me their princess.
[Flashback ends]
Mario: And maybe you're from my world.
Fire Peach: [looking up at the sky] There's a huge universe out there...with a lot of galaxies.

Bowser: What is your name?
Luigi: Uh,... Luigi.
Bowser: Not sure if you know who I am, but I'm about to marry a princess and rule the world.
Luigi: [smiles nervously] Wow. Uh, yay.
Bowser: But there's one problem, Luigi. There's a human traveling with my fiancé; has a mustache, just like you. Do you know him?
Luigi: No. No!
Bowser: Ah, tough one, I see. Maybe this'll get you to talk. [pulls at a strand of Luigi's mustache with his claws]
Luigi: Do you think I know every human being with a mustache wearing an identical outfit with a hat with the letter of his first name on it?! Because I don't!
[Bowser impatiently plucks the strand off, then plucks at more of Luigi's mustache]
Bowser: Do you know him?!
Luigi: Stop! Stop! Stop! Stop, stop! I know him! Yes, I know him! Yeah, he's my brother, Mario, and he's the best guy in the world!
Bowser: Do princesses find him attractive?!
Luigi: They do if they have good taste!
[Bowser rips part of Luigi's mustache, making him scream; Bowser tosses him to the ground]
Bowser: GET HIM OUTTA MY SIGHT!! We'll see how tough this Mario is when he watches me KILL HIS BROTHER!!

[Donkey Kong enters The Great Ring of Kong; he dances to the DK Rap from "Donkey Kong 64", with the crowd cheering wildly]
Donkey Kong: [raps along] I'm D.K.! I'm Donkey Kong!
Young Kong: Yeah! We love you!
Donkey Kong: Oh, yeah! [waves at his father] Hi, Dad! Hi!
Cranky Kong: No. No! Don't do that!
Donkey Kong: [continues dancing] Dad, wave back!
Cranky Kong: Enough with the showboating!
Donkey Kong: Whattaya mean?! They like it! It's what they came here for! Dancin' pecs! [flexes his pecs]
Cranky Kong: [to crowd] Okay, simmer down! [the crowd still cheers] I said, "Simmer down!" [the crowd stops cheering, and the song stops, but Diddy Kong still chants "D.K.!"] That means you, Diddy Kong!
Diddy Kong: D.-- [stops chanting and sits down] Sorry.
Cranky Kong: Now, since I want this fight to last more than five seconds, I put power-ups around the arena. You're welcome, Mario!
Donkey Kong: [smugly turns to Mario] I don't anything special to break every bone in your tiny body!

Mario: [after defeating Donkey Kong] Had enough?
Donkey Kong: [weakly] Not... even... close.
[he almost falls off the platform, until Mario grabs him by his tie]
Mario: I'll take that as a "Yes."
[Donkey Kong falls forward, and Mario jumps on him; the Kongs in the crowd cheer and chant "Mario!"]
Toad: YES! That's my best friend!

Donkey Kong: So, this is the end; being slowly digested by an eel next to an idiot in overalls.
Mario: Well, at least your brother isn't gonna die because of you.
Donkey Kong: [crossing his eyes] At least you're not gonna die with your dad thinking you're a joke.
Mario: [sullen] Yeah, well, my dad thinks I'm a joke, too.
Donkey Kong: [sadly] Yeah? Well... [angrily] Your dad's right!
Mario: You know what? I feel bad enough. Just- just leave me alone.
Donkey Kong: I've never met your dad, but he sounds "brilliant".
Mario: Just go in a corner and smash some stuff, smash monkey!
Donkey Kong: [angrily throwing things and slamming his fists] I... AM... MORE... THAN A GUY... WHO SMASHES THINGS!!!

[Peach walks up to the altar where Bowser is waiting for her. She gasps in shock at what she sees: Luigi, Cranky Kong, and Bowser's other caged prisoners being carried forward by a mechanism above lava below]
Bowser: I'll be sacrificing them in your honor. [Peach stares at Bowser in disbelief and shock] Lower the prisoners!
[The mechanism lowers]
Kamek: [officiating the wedding] Dearly belove-- [Peach suddenly sucker-punches him]
[The congregation gasps]
Bowser: Huh?! [glares at Peach]
Dry Bones: [sing-song tone] Drama.
Peach: You really thought I'd marry you?
Bowser: [beat] Kinda.
Peach: I'd never marry a monster. [powers up with an Ice Flower and transforms into Ice Peach]

Mario and Luigi's mother: Ah, my boys! My heroes! [kisses Mario and Luigi on the cheeks]
Mario and Luigi's father: WAHOOOO! Mario, you were amazing! [laughs happily]
Mario: [genuinely pleased] Thanks, Dad.
DK: Aw, bring it in! [pulls everyone for a group hug]
[They then turn to see Brooklyn's populace applauding them for saving the day, including Spike, Francis, and the rest of Mario and Luigi's family]
[Citizens continue to cheer in approval]
Mario and Luigi's father: These are my boys!
Giuseppe: Wahoo!
