Episode Quotes

Kelly Kapowski: [Looking at Artie] Aww, he looks so peaceful when he sleeps.
Lisa Turtle: Oh, please. You're going gaga over something that burps bugs.
Jessie Spano: I think he looks a little pale.
Kelly Kapowski: Maybe he's sick.
Zachary 'Zack' Morris: Why would he be sick? Hey, Screech, come here. Take a peek at Artie. Does he look any different to you?
Samuel 'Screech' Powers: No.
Zachary 'Zack' Morris: See?
Samuel 'Screech' Powers: Except for the fact that he's dead.
Kelly Kapowski: Jessie, I thought you were gonna picket the oil company.
Jessie Spano: Urgh, we never got there. We ran out of gas. Mom *refused* to fill up out of principle.
Zachary 'Zack' Morris: Hey, Lisa. Have you seen Slater? He's supposed to be back today.
Lisa Turtle: [Looking at the box Artie is in] No! And get that thing away from me. The only time I come this close to lizard skin is when Anne Klein puts a bucket on it.
