#66
"Well, let's just say our engine sounds a lot less sarcastic than she did."  -- Quinley
#67
"If that were true, Quinley, then why did she leave and take her nose with her?" -- TJ

Episode 5:  The Libraar
#69
"Very well.  But you're missing out on a chance to get seriously dizzy." -- Quinley

Episode 6:  Central Grey Command
#83
"We're picking up a signal.  It carries the signature of Central Grey Command!" -- Quinley

#88
"Keplerooooonium!  Where are yoooooou?" -- TJ
#89
"This is it.  The source of the distress call." -- Quinley

#91
"Oh, no.  Not again." -- Quinley
#92

Episode 7:  The Cloning Chamber
#102
"Okay...  I just have a few questions first..." -- Quinley
#103
"TJ, I wish I could help you, but the last thing I remember is putting on my chrono-scrubber helmet." -- Quinley
#104
"You mean you don't remember saying all that weird stuff about toroidal timescapes?" -- TJ
#105
"That whole time-loop thing is over and behind us, right?  Right?" -- TJ
#106
"If you're stuck in a time-loop in the past...  Then, we better find a way to rescue you." -- TJ
#107
"As you suggested, I've built a cloning chamber." -- Quinley
#108
"So, I've programmed the cloning chamber to create a double-X copy of my genome." -- Quinley
#109

#116
"Zendi was TJ's imaginary friend." -- Zendi
#117
"So... the Zendi previously known as Quinley will be your best friend squared?" -- Quinley
#118

#119
"I'll... catch up with you... in a minute." -- Zendi
#120
"Sacred circles, begin again." -- Zendi
#121
"It was C-Star.  And Juno.  They broke your machine." -- Zendi
#122
"I believe the technical term would be "chrono-dizzy."" -- Quinley
#123
"Unanswered questions.  Such a strange concept." -- Zendi
#124

#125
"If we don't accidentally start a war with them...  She will." -- Zendi
Episode 8:  Robo-Birthday
#126
"Instead, we should seek out those cats and forge a peace treaty." -- TJ

"But, we don't have any experience with diplomacy or peace treaties." -- Quinley
#128
"Well, I guess we chould try to track Kelliah's shuttle-blobule..." -- Quinley
#129
"A closet wouldn't be nearly secure enough for such delicate scientific equipment." -- Quinley
#130
"I remember... remembering her." -- Zendi
#131
"I know you used that time well, even if it was torturous for you." -- Quinley
#132
"The particle trail is thinning..." -- Zendi
#133
"Didn't Kelliah say that her robots had laser eyes?" -- TJ
#134

#135
"Hey there robot!" -- Quinley
#136
"TJ was right about you." -- Quinley
#137
"Breep-pow.  Laser power up sequence commencing." -- AF-100
#138
"Breep-eep.  Laser powered down." -- AF-100
#139
"Peace is best achieved through the threat of LASERS." -- AF-100
#140
"Robots don't have birthdays." -- AF-100
#141
"In fact, Quinley gives a birthday present to our ship every year." -- TJ
#142
"My master warned me about your singing...  So, no." -- AF-100
#143
"Just let down your firewall and the ship computer will automatically begin uploading your new heart!" -- Quinley
#144
"If it weren't so sad and ironic, I'd tell you to follow your heart." -- Quinley
#145
"And laser wounds don't go well with birthdays." -- Zendi
#146
"...and, now, you won't even celebrate your birthday with us." -- TJ
#147
"Yay!  Happy birthday, AF-100!" -- Quinley
#148
"Is that anger I'm seeing?  An angry, laser wielding robot?" -- TJ
#149
"Ah, a confused and overwhelmed, laser wielding robot, then." -- Zendi
#150
"Ask me if I'm a brontallion mega-sheep." -- AF-100
#151
"It's like looking down a hall of mirrors.  Be a sheep...  Herd the sheep...  Be a sheep..." -- Zendi
#152
"Nice.  A robot escort!  We'll be starting this peace treaty in style." -- TJ
