(Mr. Aziz: Disturbance. Another disturbance. Always a disturbance with you. Come on, 21 minutes ago, in comes order. Harmattan, Burton & Smith. Eight extra-large deep-dish pizzas. In eight minutes, I am defaulting on Joe's 29-minute guarantee. Then, not only am I receiving no money for these pizzas, but I will lose the customer forever to Pizza Yurt. Look, you are my only hope, all right? You have to make it in time. Peter, you're a nice guy. But you're just not dependable. This is your last chance. You have to go 42 blocks in 7 1/2 minutes or your a** is fired. Go!) Pizza time. [Ticking Loudly] (Lady: You're late. I'm not paying for those.) (Aziz berates Peter for his failure on delivery) (Mr. Aziz: Joe's 29-minute guarantee is a promise, man. I know to you, Parker, a promise means nothing. But to me, it's serious.) It's serious to me too, Mr. Aziz. (Mr. Aziz: You're fired. Go.) Please, I need this job. (Mr. Aziz: You're fired.) Look, give me another chance. (Aziz refuses to give Peter a second chance and doesn't care since Peter is fired as he rips a Joe's Pizza sticker off of Peter's helmet, before leaving)||„|

|“||(Daffy: My chariot awaits. Yes! Bat- lights. Bat- conditioning. Bat- stereo. To the Duck Cave.) Now what are you doing? Stay away from that Batmobile! Come here! (Daffy: I'm allowed to steal. I'm a celebrity.) - Tell it to the judge! (Daffy: - Feeling pretty good about yourself?) - I am. (The Batmobile starts driving by itself) (Daffy: - You bested that dastardly duck?) - I did. (The Batmobile heads closer to a post) You're gonna offer your catch to the pretty executive?) Indeed. (The Batmobile crashes into a post while it's still driving) Miss Houghton! (Bugs and Kate see the Water Tower coming down towards them while D.J. smiles and Daffy Duck does a thumbs up) (Citizen 1: Get out of the way!) (Bugs puts himself up a little umbrella while Kate holds a surprised look before getting covered in water) (Citizen 2: Look out!) (Kate spits out a bit of water) (Bugs: Hey! What do you know? I found Nemo.) (Kate stares at D.J. with an angry look) (Daffy: I think she likes you.) Oops. (A Security Guard rips off all of Warner Bros. logos on his uniform also removing his badge) (Security Guard: Your father would be so ashamed of you.) (The Security Guard also wants his uniform handed over to him) But I was.... It was.... (The Warner Bros. gates shut after D.J. leaves)||„|

|“||(Police Chief: JONES! MY OFFICE!) Hey, hey, who died? Other than Thrax, that is. (sees Leah) Brandy. I mean, Leah. What are you doing here? (Mayor Phlegmming, furious: You really did it now, Jones.) Mr. Mayor! I didn't see you back there. (Mayor Phlegmming: Disregarding orders, destruction, popping a pimple without a permit! What the heck were you doing there?!) (Jones is nervous) What was I doing? I was promoting good health, sir. (Mayor Phlegmming: Is that what you call it?) (Drix: Sir, he was a lethal virus. If we hadn't stopped him--) We'd be frying eggs off of Frank's dead butt! (Mayor Phlegmming: Watch it, kid, you'll cause a panic.) At least people oughta start thinking about what's going on in this body, instead of some stupid trip. (Mayor Phlegmming: Okay, Jones, you want us to start thinking? Well, here's a thought. YOU'RE FIRED!) (Ozzy becomes shocked) (Leah Estrogen, also shocked: Mr. Mayor?) (Mayor Phlegmming: Your badge, mister.) (Ozzy sadly turns in his badge in to the Police Chief's desk) Figures. I finally do something right for Frank, and I get fired. (Osmosis Jones leaves) (Leah Estrogen, sadly: Osmosis!) (Drix, trying to defend Ozzy: Please, without Jones, Frank could've been in mortal danger.) (Mayor Phlemming [chuckles]: Mortal danger? You'd love to prove that, wouldn't you, Mr. Drixenol? Keep your name in the New England Journal of Medicine? Son, do me a favor, read what it says on your arm.) (Drix: "For the temporary relief of symptoms--") (Mayor Phlemming: Exactly! Temporary! You're nothing but a wannabe. A placebo. A generic brand. Marked down, over-the-counter useless Tic-Tac.) (Drix is shocked by the Mayor's words) (Mayor Phlemming: Now, get out of my body!) (Drix sadly leaves)||„|

|“||FIRED?! You can't fire me. I quit! (Chief Quimby thinks it's okay for Gadget to quit the Riverton Police Department, and Inspector Gadget gets confused.) Hmm... wait a second. I don't want to quit. Besides, Chief, it's not my fault. Look what Baxter found on me. (Inspector Gadget shows the Chief the circuit override chip to prove he has found evidence at the Science Convention.) A circuit override chip. (Unfortunately, Chief Quimby refuses to listen and doesn't care since Inspector Gadget is fired.) (Chief Quimby, furious: I don't care! Claw stole the laser and you tarred and feathered the mayor in toothpaste... and caused $100,000 in damages.) (Chief Quimby becomes stern.) (Chief Quimby: Turn in your badge, Gadget.) (Inspector Gadget is stunned.) Oh, but, Chief, all I ever wanted to be... my entire life was a crime fighter. (Chief Quimby, still stern: Your badge.) (Inspector Gadget looks at his badge for the last time and gives his badge to the Chief.) (Chief Quimby: Well, that'll be all... Mr. Gadget.) (Inspector Gadget leaves Quimby's office, but looks at G2 one last time before leaving. Inspector Gadget then has all of his stuff from his office put into a box and sadly leaves the Riverton Police Department, feeling that he is no longer a crime fighter anymore.)||„|

Turn us all into stone. Shh. No. No telling what the old devil might do.) He's not an old devil. He--he's good. And his magic is good, too. (Ector and Kay have stern looks on their faces.) If you just leave him alone. (Sir Ector: Now look here, Wart. That's three more demerits.) (Sir Kay: Box his ears, Dad.) Just because you can't understand something, it--it doesn't mean it's wrong. (Sir Ector: Ten more demerits.) (Wart is on the verge of tears.) You may call the rules and nobody else can say anything. (Sir Ector got more angry at the Wart.) (Sir Ector: You said a plenty, boy! All that poppin' off just cooked your goose. Kay...from now on, young Hobbs is your squire.) (Kay is satisfied.) (Sir Ector: You hear that, Wart? Hobbs is going to be Kay's squire.) Ye-yes, sir.

(Chet: Whoa, whoa, whoa, okay, Carl, if you just give him one more chance, I promise that this will never, ever...) (Carl: You don't understand. YOU'RE fired. "You," plural. Youse. Y'all. Both of you! (slithers away with the other snails glaring at him in anger with Chet upset) Theo: Chet, I'm so sorry. (Chet becomes angry) You have to believe me, I did't mean for this to...
