Raphael: Hey, the stealth bike is my thing!
Leonardo: Well now your thing is sucking it up!
Donatello: Hey, that's my thing!
April O'Neil: I feel like I've gone from happily single to mother of four over night.
Splinter: Tell me about it.
[series theme song]
Chorus: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Heroes in a half shell! Turtle power! / Here we go! It's the lean, green, ninja team / On the scene, cool teens doing ninja things / So extreme, out the sewers like laser beams / Get rocked with the shell-shocked pizza kings! / Can't stop these radical dudes / The secret of the ooze made the chosen few / Emerge from the shadows to make their move / The good guys win and the bad guys lose! / Leonardo's the leader in blue, does anything it takes to get his ninjas through / Donatello is a fellow, has a way with machines / Raphael has the most attitude on the team / Michelangelo, he's one of a kind, and you know just where to find him when it's party time / Master Splinter taught them every single skill they need, to be one lean, mean, green incredible team! Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Heroes in a half shell! Turtle power!
Michaelangelo: Cowabunga.
Donatello: Listen, if the Shredder hadn't have made the Utroms crash in the first place, then they never would have developed the ooze, and if they never developed the ooze, we'd never have been mutated. And if we'd never been mutated, we'd all be eating fish flakes in some kid's acquarium right now.
Michaelangelo: Wow. That's really deep.
April O'Neil: [Referring to the turtles and Casey] Well, it's definitely a family. But do you think we'll ever be able to teach "the kids" some manners?
Splinter: Miss O'Neil, teaching them the ancient art of Ninjitsu was hard enough. I'm afraid even I cannot work miracles.
Donatello: I was thinking that the Shredder had a bigger hand in our lives than we know. Without the Shredder, we'd all still be pet turtles in a glass jar right now.
Michaelangelo: [Imitating Gary Coleman] What you talkin' 'bout, Willis?
Donatello: Well, allow me to explain: As you all may recall, we got mutated by that strange ooze when we were only babies.
Splinter: I remember it as if it were yesterday. You were all so cute.
Donatello: The ooze that mutated us came from the TCRI building, right? And, why did the TCRI building even exist? Because the Utroms were trying to build their Transmat so they could go home. And why did the Utroms need to go home?
Michaelangelo: Because they were late for dinner?
Donatello: No, because an evil prisoner they were transporting across the galaxy sabotaged their starship, causing them to crash land on Earth centuries ago. And they've been trapped here ever since. And who was this evil prisoner that caused the Utroms so much trouble? He was in fact... Drumroll please.
[Drumroll]
Donatello: He was in fact... The Shredder! Ergo, the Shredder had a direct hand in our creation. See what I mean?
Raphael: I think I speak for everyone when I say, "No".
Michaelangelo: Ladies and mutants, how NOT to tell our origin story.
[Leonardo, Michaelangelo and Donatello arrive]
Casey Jones: Friends of yours?
Raphael: Brothers actually
Casey Jones: I can see the family resemblance.
Michaelangelo: I'm the pretty one.
Raphael: I smell smoke.
Donatello: I smell gas.
Raphael: Mikey.
Donatello: Not that kind of gas.
Michaelangelo: A very wise frog once said: "It ain't easy being green."
Raphael: We'll go down fighting.
Michaelangelo: I don't really want to go down at all.
Splinter: Attacking a wounded soldier. You have no honor.
Shredder: I fight to win.
Rocksteady: Ooooh yuck! It looks like what the water looks like after my bath!
Shredder: Hey. When was the las time THAT happened?
Rocksteady: Ooh what year is this?
[goo splat]
Rocksteady: I think it's the year my bath is due!
[series theme song]
Chorus: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Heroes in a half-shell! Turtle power! They're the world's most fearsome fighting team! We're really hip! / They're heroes in a half-shell and they're green! Hey, get a grip! / When the evil Shredder attack, These turtle boys don't cut him no slack! Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! Splinter taught them to be ninja teens! He's a radical rat! / Leonardo leads, Donatello does machines! That's a fact, jack! / Raphael is cool but crude! Gimme a break! / Michelangelo is a party dude! Party! / Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Heroes in a half-shell! Turtle power!
Michaelangelo: What the shell is going on?
Michaelangelo: Goodbye, dented manhole cover. Goodbye, home sweet home.
Raphael: Hello, cruel world. Come on.
[the power goes out so Splinter lights a candle]
Donatello: Keep that flame away from Mikey. He just ate a double-chili pizza.
Donatello: The elasticity of it's flesh is too resilient.
Michaelangelo: And it's really rubbery too.
[Baxter Stockman gets up after being defeated several times]
Leonardo: What do we have to do to stop this guy?
Shredder: I have asked myself that question many times.
Michaelangelo: It's quiet. A little too quiet. Always wanted to say that.
Michaelangelo: If you'd read comics you'd know the bad guy ALWAYS comes back.
Splinter: How many times have I told you not to sneak up to the surface?
Michaelangelo: This month?
Donatello: About 512, Sensai.
Michaelangelo: They don't call me "Air Mikey" for nothing.
Splinter: You should never have tried to face The Shredder alone. He is too powerful.
Donatello: You're telling me. I've got bruises that have got bruises.
Leonardo: And did you see how The Shredder walked right through that fire?
Michaelangelo: Yeah, he's like, "The Shredinator" or something.
Michelangelo: Booyakasha!
Karai: Booyakasha? What does that even mean?
Michelangelo: I don't know, but it's fun to yell!
Shredder: You have a brilliant brain, Krang!
Krang: Of course. It's all I really am.
Donatello: Piece of pie.
Michaelangelo: Mmm, piece of pizza pie!
Leonardo: And, even if the Shredder is still out there, no matter what he throws at us, no matter how he messes with our lives, nothing he does will change the most important thing: that we are family.
Michaelangelo: Ha ha ha. Leo, that was off the charts on the Sap-O Meter. You been watching way too many after school specials, bro.
Raphael: Just eat your S'Mores and keep quiet, Mikey. Leo's got a point.
Leonardo: Can you imagine being that alone?
Donatello: You know, things may get roughat times, but at least we have each other.
Michaelangelo: Yeah, but do we have to have Raph?
Raphael: Come here, knucklehead!
Michaelangelo: [Finding April] Can I keep her?
Michaelangelo: [smells towel] Ahhh, springtime fresh!
[Raphael and Michaelangelo are tied up back-to-back in chairs with a bomb next to them]
Raphael: We're Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! We oughta be able to escape from a cornball setup like this!
[Raphael notices Michaelangelo rocking side to side]
Raphael: What are you doing?
Michaelangelo: Well, I once saw this movie where this dude was tied up and he just kept rocking back and forth 'til he fell over.
Raphael: It's worth a try.
[Raphael rocks side to side with Michaelangelo and they soon fall over]
Raphael: Great! Then what did he do?
Michaelangelo: I dunno. I went into the kitchen for some popcorn.
Donatello: That's one cool-as-shell machine.
Michaelangelo: COWABUNG...
[pushed into a man hole by Raph]
Michaelangelo: ... AHHHHHHHHHH! NOT FUNNY RAPH!
Raphael: Oh yes it was.
Donatello: The Gravity Equalizer. Don't leave home without it.
Dr. Chaplin: Attention all hands, welcome to China. The floating city of Beijing is dead ahead. Pretty cool, huh?
Hamato Yoshi: He who lives without honor will end without honor.
Donatello: Been there, done that.
Raphael: Then go there and do it again.
Raphael: It's not nice to invade Mr. Raphie's Neighborhood.
Michaelangelo: I feel like I'm in an ugly convention.
Raphael: Then you must feel right at home.
Criminal: What are you?
Raphael: I am the Green Vengeance.
Criminal: The Green Vengeance? What?
Raphael: All right, never mind. Don't like green, huh? How about black and blue?
Casey Jones: Thanks, you guys. How can I repay you?
Michaelangelo: We accept cash, checks and all major credit cards.
Michaelangelo: It's the end of the world as we know it... And I don't feel fine.
Leonardo: Good news, Mike, your DVD collection survived.
Casey Jones: Those things aren't human.
Raphael: Well in case you haven't noticed, neither am I.
Raphael: Watch out for him, because something that evil always comes back.
Michaelangelo: Dude, that was great. How do you come up with those?
Raphael: Don't keep recycling the old ones, Mikey. You gotta try and find something new.
[Gen, a humanoid rhino, sees a New Yorker dressed like Rocksteady, the mutant rhino from the '80s cartoon]
Gen: I like your style, my friend.
Michaelangelo: [after hearing about the Mousers] Boy, I'd sure hate to be a rat in this city. Oh, sorry Master Splinter.
Shredder: Say farewell to each other while you still can.
Michaelangelo: Oh yeah, Mr. Spiky-Pants? Well, you're the one who should be saying farewell to... Uh... To yourself.
Raphael: [Sarcastically] Oh yeah, Mikey, that got him.
Shredder: Those who are not with me are against me and I crush anyone who stands against me!
April O'Neil: You guys can stay as long as you want, so long as you don't block the TV.
Utrom: We come in peace.
Shredder: But you will go in pieces.
Triceraton: This event is co-sponsored by Ranzan's Yum-Stuff, makers of the best meat-food-on-a-stick treat on this galaxy or any other.
Donatello: Here's another fine mess we've gotten ourselves into.
Fugitoid: I know the risks are high. There is a 95.6% certainty that I will not return. But I besiege you, do not try to stop me. For it is as they say, "Greater love has no robot than this that he lay down his R.A.M. for his friends".
April O'Neil: Don't mind him he's the village idiot.
Casey Jones: Hey.
Little Boy: Mom. There's two giant turtles in the bathroom and one of them has got your stockings.
Raphael: These guys must have some kind of what-do-you-call-it, cloaking device.
Casey Jones: Cloaking device? What are they, Klingons?
Shredder: None of you will not leave here alive.
Leonardo: Are you guys thinking what I'm thinking?
Michaelangelo: That a great big serving of Kung Pao Chicken would be really good about now?
Splinter: I hate to put either one of you at risk, but only a fool ignores fate and the strange gifts it offers.
April O'Neil: Well if it's strange gifts you're after, they don't come any stranger than Casey Jones.
Casey Jones: Pukebrain.
Raphael: Gak face.
Utrom #1: I hate walking on my tentacles.
Utrom #2: Shut up, Krang.
Leonardo: [Repeated line] Oh no.
Michaelangelo: I tried to get out of the way but then the building jumped out and attacked me.
April O'Neil: [Over the Shell Cell] Guys, it's April. Casey and I are in kind of a tight spot.
Leonardo: April, I can't hear you. Can you talk a little louder?
April O'Neil: Not really. We're being held by these aliens. They're big and ugly and they stink.
April O'Neil: There's no way he could have survived that, right?
Michaelangelo: I don't know, April, the Shredder may play rough, he may play dirty, but he don't play dead.
Leonardo: It's getting awful ugly in here.
Raphael: Nah, that's just Mikey.
Michaelangelo: Hey, I was voted as having a smile that brightens any room.
Donatello: I sure you hope you can brighten up this one.
Dr. Baxter Stockman: You brought us all the way out here for a blimp? What pea-brained, half-wit authorized this project?
Oroku Saki: I did.
Dr. Baxter Stockman: Oh, well... I'm sure you had your reasons, oh wise and revered master.
Oroku Saki: Indeed.
Michaelangelo: Man, when we found out that Shredder was an Utrom, I nearly soiled my shell.
Leonardo: I finished you off myself. You can't be alive.
Shredder: Ha ha ha. You merely separated my head from my body. A courtesy I will gladly extend to you all, for none of you are leaving here alive.
[Laughs evilly]
Casey Jones: There's no-one here.
Splinter: I think he's right.
April O'Neil: There's a first.
Leonardo: We have to keep our wits about us.
Raphael: Don't worry, Mikey. You can share mine.
Michaelangelo: [annoyed] Oh, so now I'm witless?
Raphael: I'll fill you in over dinner.
Michaelangelo: Dinner? Now you're talkin' my language.
Raphael: What language is that Mikey? Nitwit?
Thug: Who are you, Man?
Nobody: Who am I? I might just be a glimmer of hope for a lost city. I'm the guy the cops would thank if they knew I existed. But they don't. Who am I? I'm Nobody.
Leonardo: [Turtle Tips on organic gardens] Even small gardens help to refurbish the soil.
Donatello: Yeah and these plants will help clean the air we breathe.
Raphael: And it makes great organic pizza, if you're into that kind of thing.
April O'Neil: Who ordered the tomato, asparagus and kiwi special?
Michaelangelo: Oh yuck. Dudes, if we're growing pizza toppings, how about organic marshmallows?
Donatello: Geez, Master Splinter, now you're backseat Ninja-ing me too.
Donatello: Boy, this guy's more into pizza than we are.
Raphael: Yeah. What's he gonna do next?
[sarcastically]
Raphael: spray us with tomato sauce?
Raphael: [sprayed with tomato sauce] I had to ask.
[Raphael is watching the news on TV]
Raphael: That ticks me off! All the news is bad!
Donatello: Raph! Everything ticks you off.
Raphael: Not everything!
[pauses for a second]
Raphael: Okay, everything.
Fugitoid: Help. I'm being robo-napped.
Splinter: Master Yoshi kept his honor to the end. A true warrior, and a true Guardian.
Casey Jones: Aah! Grr! The Shredder and Hun, the Purple Dragons. Buncha heartless goons! I... I just wanna... Grrrrrrr!
April O'Neil: I think what Mr. Jones here is trying to say is, we're sorry for your loss, Master Splinter.
Hun: Who gave you these blades?
Raphael: Yo mama.
[to the Turtles]
Shredder: The time for games has ended. No more charades.
[takes his helmet off]
Shredder: You see me as I am and it will be the last thing you will ever see.
[puts his helmet back on]
Shredder: Prepare to face your destiny and your doom.
Leonardo: Like Master Splinter said, it's not the weapon that's important, it's the Ninja wielding it.
Dr. Baxter Stockman: Sweet dreams, you cursed freaks.
Leonardo: Our weapons. They've disappeared.
Dr. Baxter Stockman: Or should I say very unpleasant nightmares? Ha ha ha ha.
Donatello: What's the plan?
Leonardo: Well you know- kick, punch, stab.
Splinter: Donatello, your Battle Shell is a marvel of engineering. A true testament to your incredible mechanical skills. And I never want to see it in our home again.
Casey Jones: Now that's what I call crashing the party. Lame party, though. No band. I brought drumsticks
[presents two hockey sticks]
Casey Jones: Who wants to be the drum?
Quarry: We've learned to either live off the land or it lives off of us.
Michaelangelo: And that's how they defeated "The Thing That Wouldn't Leave".
Raphael: I just want to apologize for earlier.
Leonardo: Okay, who are you and what have you done with our brother Raphael?
Oroku Saki: I do not tolerate failure.
Dr. Baxter Stockman: Which is why you'd make a lousy scientist.
[after entering a damp cavern]
Donatello: That's some stank.
Michaelangelo: Don't look at me, my brother. Remember, he who smelt it, dealt it.
Raphael: [Splinter has been thrown in the dungeon] I'm gonna go bust him our right now.
Traximus: Raphael, that is a rash, foolhardy and extremely dangerous act. Count me in.
Karai: Stand by, we are approaching Beijing.
Michaelangelo: 'Bout time. I really gotta go to the little turtle's room.
Leonardo: You're a news reporter?
April O'Neil: Maybe in another life time.
Shredder: Like the Phoenix, I have risen from the ashes. And into my fire, you shall fall.

Raphael: Mikey, I told you: no more cowabunga.
Rocksteady: You sure this gonna give us them powers?
Shredder: Of course. Although you may have a little trouble getting a date on Saturday night.
Donatello: And then... it hit me!
[bonk]
Shredder: Come along, you two.
Rocksteady: Oh, all we ever do is go up and down, up and down!
Krang: Sounds like the perfect job for a couple of yo-yos. I made a funny.
[Raphael knocks down Bebop and Rocksteady during a fight]
Raphael: Ha! You idiots couldn't hit me with...
[we see Bebop and Rocksteady picking up]
Raphael: ...a big rubber tyre!
[Bebop and Rocksteady throw the tyre at Raphael and knock him down]
Raphael: Ever get that rundown feeling?
Shredder: Now
[shouts]
Shredder: Forward March! YOUR LEFT/YOUR LEFT/Ya' left your wife and fourty-eight kids!
Rocksteady: Oooh, shiver me timbers!
Bebop: And while you're at it, shiver mine also!
Rupert The Turtle: When that thing gets close to capacity... Kabloo-hoo-hoo-hooey!
All: Kabloo-hoo-hoo-hooey?
Leonardo: Where's the Shredder?
Baxter Stockman: I'll never talk.
Raphael: You'd better, or else I'm gonna get... Sarcastic.
Raphael: [all the Turtles are tied up]
[to Donatello]
Raphael: C'mon, figure a way out of this.
Donatello: Are you kidding? Only the most skilled Ninja Master could get out these knots!
[Leonardo frees himself, then starts to cut Donatello loose]
Donatello: Oh, hi, Leonardo.
Krang: If I had hands I would cover my ears, if I had them!
April O'Neil: For some people, it's an improvement!
[giggles]
Samarai Mech: Hakatchu!
Raphael: Geshundheit!
