=== Super Strong Warner Siblings/Nutcracker Slappy/Wakko's New Gookie/A Quake, a Quake! [3.02] ===
[After "Dance of the Sugarplum Fairy Op. 71 a Andante ma non troppo" from "The Nutcracker Suite" leaves both Slappy and Skippy dazed...]
Slappy: Hold it! Stop the music there! [the music stops] What's with the sappy music and the dancing? I don't do pathos and I can't dance, don't ask me. [to Charlton Woodchuck] Wait a minute. You look familiar. Unappealing, but familiar.
Skippy: Aunt Slappy, that's the director, Charlton Woodchuck.
Slappy: BAYNARTS! [slaps him on the back] What're you doin' here, you ol' son of a hack?
Charlton: It's "Charlton". It's written in my contract that when I was old enough, I would get to direct.
Slappy: Yeah, Skippy has the same deal.
Skippy: [dressed like Steven Spielberg] Love you, babe, but we're losing our light.
Slappy: [taps the script] What's with six minutes of opening a walnut?
Charlton: Don't you see? It's a parable about man against nature. The nut represents the struggle to achieve our goals.
Slappy: [tears up the script] There! My goal is achieved!
Charlton: [sighs] Let me put it this way, Sloppy.
Slappy: It's "Slappy", Baynarts!
Charlton: That's "Charlton". Either you do this script, or you don't get paid.
[Slappy goes nose to nose with Charlton, glaring... then grins winningly, complete with cash register sound]
Slappy: Hit it, maestro![At the end of the cartoon, after finally getting the shell to open...]
Slappy: Hey, von Stroheim! There's no nut inside this shell!
Charlton: Yes, exactly, it's the emptiness of our existence! That's symbolism, that's metaphor!
Slappy: Yeah, but that's not comedy! [stuffs Charlton into the nutshell] Now there's a nut inside!
Skippy: Now that's comedy!
Slappy: You're adorable, but that's my line!


=== A Hard Day's Warners/Gimme a Break/Please Please Please Get a Life Foundation [3.04] ===
Yakko: Is this you? Are you happily engrossed in inconsequential cartoon trivia to the point that your socks can probably stand up by themselves?Slappy: [seeing three Skippys] Well, if it isn't Huey, Dewey and Louie. I haven't seen you guys since Daisy Duck's bat mitzvah.

Yakko: Tell us, where did you last see your boss?
Hello Nurse: In the Mambo Room at the Tropicombo Club. A band was playing Latin dance music. I was with the doctor, he mumbled something. The band had a big dumb guy playing drums and everyone was dancing under a pole, then the doctor vanished.
Yakko: Now, lemme get this straight: He muttered some mumbo-jumbo during the Combo Samba in the Mambo at the Tropicombo. Then there was a jumbo dumbo playing the limbo on the bongos and then he was gone?
Hello Nurse: That is absolutely correct!
[A You Bet Your Life-style fanfare plays]
Yakko: Tell her what she's won!
Wakko: Another date with me!
Hello Nurse: How come I always get the booby prize?
Dot: I'm not touching that one!Yakko: So sister, what's your story?
Dot: Well, I was born in the wagon of a travelin' show, my mama used to dance for the money they'd throw. Papa would do what...
Yakko: Not you! Her!
Bette Midler: [bursting through the door, singing] It's only one eye, but it's open!
Yakko: No, not you either. HER!
Dot: You said sister!
Yakko: All he-man detectives call women 'Sister' in the politically unaware decades preceding Women's Liberation. [to Hello Nurse] So sister [to Dot] who's really not my sister but I'm just CALLING sister...Hello Nurse: I claim this statue in the name of Gulf and Western.
Minerva Mink: I claim it in the name of Rupert Murdoch.
Ralph: Uh, by gad, sir. I claim it in the name of Matsu... I mean, Mateshootie... uh... for Seagram's.
Yakko: Ah, I've got it. The mink is working for Fox, the pair of legs is working for Paramount, and the guy who needs rehearsal's working for Universal!
Dot: [dryly] Thank you, Dr. Seuss.Yakko: Now about our fee.

Skippy: [hugs Slappy] You're the greatest, Aunt Slappy!
Slappy: Coachin' does have it's small rewards.
