Episode Quotes
Gaia: (after seeing the picture of Greedly's oil-drilling and one of oil spilling into a river on Planet Vision, sees factories polluting the air, cars polluting the air, a bird clutching garbage flying over a trashed ocean, a deforested land) It's worse than I thought! Earth is dying.

Gaia: (after the Planeteers' transportation, floats down to them) Welcome, to Hope Island!
Wheeler: Yo, say, lady - you wanna explain what's going on here?
Gaia: (chuckles) Hm. So much for drama.

Wheeler: (winking) Hey, babe, love your accent. You Russian?
Linka: Soviet.
(shoves him lightly)
Linka: Please, go away.
Wheeler: Love it!

Wheeler: seeing Wind and Earth are two powers] Hey, what's my element? Water? Fire?
(his ring shoots a blast of fire, setting alight the wood floor)
Wheeler: Yow! Sorry. You got an extinguisher?
Gaia: Better than that. Gi, your power is Water.
Gi: All right. Here it goes - Water!
(causes a column of it to arise from the river which sweeps over the hut and the Planeteers, who yell out)
Wheeler: Nice job, toots. I'm all wet.
Linka: You certainly are. At least the fire is out.
Wheeler: Oh, yeah.

Kwame: And if we encounter a situation which we cannot handle?
Gaia: Well, just put your powers together. Then you'll *really* be surprised.
(disappears)
Wheeler: (stands) Wait a minute! What's *that* supposed to mean?
Gi: Sit down, Yankee.
Linka: And fasten the seat-belt for your safety.
Wheeler: (amused) Didn't know you cared.

Wheeler: (the Geocruiser is struck with oil) Man, these guys are really rude and crude.

Captain Planet: (laughing as Rigger rams the drill into his chest) Come on, guys, that tickles.

Captain Planet: (his energy is restored) Ah, I feel like a brand-new hero.
Wheeler: You are!
Captain Planet: And so are you, Planeteers. Thanks for *your* help.
