Sam: Arnold, what are you doing here?
Arnold: I had the same question for you. Are you guys... Superheroes?
(Sam with water power, Clover with fire power, Alex with electric power)
Alex: That would be super-spies.

G.L.A.D.I.S.: Clover, you'll have the laser nailfile. And let's avoid hitting the mayor's car again.

Clover: (To Arnold) Sorry, Arnie. Gotta go, we're on a case.
Arnold: Hey! Maybe I can join you guys. Admiral Admirable and the Super Spies! Cool, huh?
Clover: Cool? Not.
Arnold: Well, why not? I've got the outfit!
Alex: Forget it Arnold. There's more to being a super-spy than funny clothes!
Sam: Look, we gotta trust you not to tell anyone that we're spies, okay. It could put our very lives in danger.
Arnold: (Arnold puts his head down discouraged.) Fine.

Mandy: Get away from me! You are useless!
Arnold: Aww... I am useless.
Sam: Oh, hey Arnold. Don't listen to her.
Clover: Yeah, it's no biggie. Nobody got hurt... except Mandy's pride.

Sam: Doesn't Mandy ever get tired of buying votes?
Clover: Does a piranha ever get tired of biting toes?

Clover: Hello! Detention Alert! We're gonna be late for first period if we don't hurry!

Sam: This puppy obviously belongs to someone. We gotta return him.
Clover: (Puts on an enraged face with flames) Thanks for totally killing my fantasy, Sam!

Sam: Whatever's going on, it reeks of...
Clover/Sam: Alex!

Clover: (To Sam) Too bad Alex didn't come with. She's not as picky as you are about playing by the rules.

Security Guard: This time of night, there's only one question worth asking. Glazed or cream-filled.
(Both guards laugh.)

Geraldine: I'll get you for this Admiral Admirable!
Arnold: Not today, Geraldine!
