Thiz is your captain speaking. We hope you had a pleasant trip. In a few moments we will be landing in Vulgaria.

    Grandpa : Where?

    Baron Bomburst : Vul-GARE-ee-ah.

    Grandpa : Oh.

    Baron Bomburst : So, please fasten your seatbelt, and no-o-o-o smoking. Thank you!

    Baron Bomburst : Shrecks?

    First Spy : "X"!

    Baron Bomburst : Lex?

    First Spy : [becoming pompously frustrated that his own accomplice can't remember/understand who he is]  EX! As in...

  • Baron Bomburst : [very frustrated]  Dolls? Dolls? I have hundreds of dolls! Oh, no dolls.

    Toymaker : But-but this is not just an ordinary doll, Your Excellency.

    Toymaker : You see?

  • Baron Bomburst : Oh, I haven't seen a good drowning in years.
