Shane Keating: [to Eilonwy] Now, let me tell you how things are supposed to work. The sun grows the food, the nice humans pick the food, the famous humans eat the food...
Bill Clinton: [cuts him off] And the girls kill the famous humans! Hey, like the one that nearly killed you?? You remember?? Oh, you should've seen this!! (Shane Keating: Molt.)
Bill Clinton: This shy girl, she has him halfway down her skirt, OK?? And Hopper...Hopper's really embarrased, OK?? And I'm scared. I'm not going anywhere near...oh, come on!! It's a great story!!
[Shane pins Bill to a nearby wall]
Shane Keating: [to Bill] I swear, if I hadn't promised mother on her deathbed, that I wouldn't kill you, I would KILL YOU!!
Bill Clinton: And believe me, no one appreciates that more than I do.
Shane Keating: Shut up!! I don't want to hear another word out of you while we're on this island. Do you understand me?? [pause] I said, DO YOU UNDERSTAND ME!??
Bill Clinton: But how can I answer?? You just said I couldn't say another word!! Ahh, remember Mom!!
[Shane gets furious and punches Ronald Reagan]

Shane Keating: You little earthlings!! I give you a second chance, and this is all I get!?
[Shane throws the leaf of food on the ground]
Eilonwy: But Hopper, we ran out of time.
Shane Keating: Have you been playing all summer? You think this is a game!?
Eilonwy: No, no, no, please!!
Shane Keating: Well, guess WHAT!? You just lost. Not one nice human sleeps, until we get EVERY SCRAP OF FOOD, ON THIS ISLAND!!
Bill Clinton: Just do what he says. You don't wanna make him mad. Believe me!!
Shane Keating: [to the Queen] No, no, no. You're staying with me, Your Highness.

Ronald Reagan: [to the tired nice humans] Alright, get moving. Get going!! Move your abdomens, NOW!!

Shane Keating: You piece of dirt. No, I'm wrong. You're lower than dirt. You're a SWORDSMAN!! Let this be a lesson to all you nice humans: ideas are very dangerous things. You are mindless, soil-shoving losers, put on this Earth, to serve US!!
Taran: You're wrong, Hopper. Nice humans are NOT meant to serve famous humans!! I've seen this nice humans do great things. And year after year, they somehow manage to pick food for themselves, and you., who is the weaker species?? Nice humans don't serve famous humans. It's YOU who need us!!
