    Leonardo: Raph?

    Raphael: I just... uh, uh... If this our last moment together, I just want you guys to know I'm sorry! I'm sorry I was so hard on you! Ugh. Everytime I pushed you I... I threatened you, I yelled at you, I pushed you beyond your limits, it's because I believe in you! I believe in each one of you! I believe in you spirit and your intelligence and your potential! And every time I talked about walking away it was because I was scared! I just didn't think I was good enough to stand next to you and call you brothers, and say to you, I love you! I love you guys so much!

  • [as the Turtles leave]

    Leonardo: [to April] Do NOT say a word about this to anyone. If you do, we will find you. April O'Neil.

  • [Splinter catches the Turtles sneaking in]

    Splinter: Where have you been?

    [knocks down Leonardo]

    Raphael: We were working out!

    [gets knocked down]

    Donatello: I forgot to soak my retainer!

    [gets knocked down]

    Michelangelo: I'm totally sleepwalking! Mikey's sleeping, and walking, he's totally innocent!

    [gets knocked down]

  • Michelangelo: [takes April] Come with me, I gotta safe place for you to hide. And if you're thirsty I got a secret stash of orange crush behind the fridge. Don't tell Raph.

    Splinter: Of course, you've all tasted the five-cheese pizza. But this... cheesemongers have speculated its existence for centuries. Da Vinci's original masterpiece. I submit to you... Novantanove Formaggio, The 99-cheese pizza!

    Michelangelo: It's not possible...

    Donatello: Mikey, it's a trap! A pizza with that variety of cheese is a culinary impossibility!

    Splinter: [holds out a piece to Michelangelo] Shall I list the ingredients? Cheddar... Provolone...

    Leonardo: Mikey, don't you do it!

    Splinter: Asiago...

    Donatello: Keep it together!

    Splinter: Taleggio...

    Michelangelo: I don't even know what that is...

    Splinter: Mozzarella, of course...

    Michelangelo: [cracks] Okay, okay, okay... We left the lair because the Foot were taking hostages, and we totally kicked butt, and there was this girl named April O'Neil who took our picture... but we took care of it!

  • [after beating the Foot, the Turtles celebrate on a rooftop]

    Raphael: That's what I'm talking about! This is OUR city! These are OUR streets!

    Michelangelo: You mess with us, you steppin' to the Wu-TANG!

    Raphael: Did you see that guy's jaw connect with the concrete?

    Donatello: He'll be drinking out of a sippy cup for months!

    Raphael: That's what I'm talking about! Like shadows in the night, completely unseen...

    [April takes a picture]

    Michelangelo: What was that?

    Donatello: It's a camera flash...

  • Michelangelo: Guys, did you see? I totally talked to a girl!

  • Raphael: Hey, Mikey, remember that thing you used to say when we were kids?

    Michelangelo: You made me promise never to say it again...

  • Raphael: Looking for this?

    [holds up April's phone]

    April O'Neil: No no no, don't break that! Please!

    Leonardo: [takes the phone out of Raph's hand] How many times do I have to tell you? We don't break things, we fix them. Donnie already wiped the pic, genius! Problem solved! Moving on!

    Raphael: Who made you boss?

    Leonardo: You know who did.

    [both get in each others' faces]

    Michelangelo: Oooh, tension. It's been like thirty whole minutes since you had this conversation.

  • [the Turtles take April and Vernon through the sewers]

    Michelangelo: Please keep your hands and feet inside the shell at all times!

  • Leonardo: All these years you told us we were rescued from the fire by a great guardian spirit, a hogosha.

    Splinter: That's right.

    [points at April]

    Splinter: This is the hogosha.

    [all the Turtles bow to April]

    Michelangelo: [whispers] Dude, my girlfriend is the hogosha...

    [Leo hits him]

  • [all the Turtles are in the Hashi]

    Michelangelo: [doing a handstand on a swivel chair] Guys, I'm in the zone! There's literally nothing that can break me right now!

    Michelangelo: [looking at a monitor] This is insane... that cat is playing Chopsticks with chopsticks!

    Leonardo: Don't be an idiot!

    [changes the monitor's channel, to Mikey's chagrin]

    Leonardo: Okay... let's rock and roll, boys!

  • Michelangelo: [fights the Foot] Wassup, bro? Oh, you want some of this? I'm a snapping turtle fool! Snap, snap, snap!

  • Michelangelo: [spars with Donnie] Wassup, bro? You want some of this? I'm like a ghost! I'm over here, then I'm over here bro! I'm a shadow! I'm a flying shadow fire dragon!

    Raphael: We can hear you!

  • [April stares at the Turtles]

    Michelangelo: Bro, that's a good thing. Maybe she has hot friends!

  • April O'Neil: Swing me toward him!

    Donatello: Okay, that was just weird, first the Foot, then that hideous monster,

    Michelangelo: Yeah, it looked like your mom, dude!

    Donatello: Yeah, that would make her your mom too, dufus.

    Michelangelo: Whatever.

  • Master Splinter: Ah, good morning boys!

    Michelangelo: And a two for stealth.

  • Michelangelo: Why skate a half-pipe when you can skate a sewer pipe?

  • Michelangelo: [re: Nightwatcher] I hear his bike turns into a plane, or like a jet pack. Hey Don, you're so smart, why don't we have jet packs?

    Donatello: Yeah, that's good, Mikey. I don't even trust you with a driver's license.

    [to the others]

    Donatello: Have you seen the way this guy drives?

    Michelangelo: [they hear a monster roar] Woah... Ho Ho someone's craky!

    Raphael: [to Leo] ok Jungle Boy, grab a vine

  • Donatello: Within hours, we'll lose the city. Within days, the country. And within weeks... the world.

    Michelangelo: Oh, so it's like Hailey's Comet - only monsters come out!

  • Michelangelo: What do you think it is?

    Donatello: An interdimensional portal to a distant world, I would assume.

    Michelangelo: Ooooh! I want one!

  • Michelangelo: [looking in the monster's capsules for Leonardo] Leo?

    [monster leaps at window snarling]

    Michelangelo: Sorry, wrong cage.

  • Michelangelo: [pauses skateboarding] Oh, so it's like Haley's Comet, only monsters come out?

    Donatello: Umm, well, yes, I guess so.

    Michelangelo: I'm smart.

    [skateboards off-screen, sound of a loud crash]

    Michelangelo: OW! I'm OK!

  • [from trailer]

    Michelangelo: [falls into a dumpster] I'm okay!

  • Raphael: OK, Leo, I'll bite. What're we doing up here?

    Leonardo: I told Splinter I'd get this team in shape again.

    Michelangelo: Hey, I've been training. Since you've left, my videogame scores have, like, doubled.

    Leonardo: Right...

  • [from trailer]

    Michelangelo: Did anyone get the license plate of that thing that hit us last night? It looked like your mom, dude!


    Donatello: ...Yeah, that would make her your mom too, doofus.

    Michelangelo: ...Nuts.

  • Michelangelo: [talking in his sleep] Duuuude.

  • [repeated exchange]

    Pope Julius II: When will you make an end?

    Michelangelo: When I am finished!

  • Raphael: For what is an artist in this world but a servant, a lackey for the rich and powerful? Before we even begin to work, to feed this craving of ours, we must find a patron, a rich man of affairs, or a merchant, or a prince or... a Pope. We must bow, fawn, kiss hands to be able to do the things we must do or die.


    Raphael: We are harlots always peddling beauty at the doorsteps of the mighty.

    Michelangelo: If it comes to that, I won't be an artist.

    Raphael: [scoffs] You'll always be an artist. You have no choice.

  • Michelangelo: I'm a Florentine and a Christian... painting in this century. They were Greeks and pagans living in theirs. Pagans? Christians? An artist should be above such distinction. And a cardinal, especially one who pretends to understand art... should be above such foolishness. I'll tell you what stands between us and the Greeks. Two thousand years of human suffering stands between us! Christ on His Cross stands between us. And this difference is what I will express in my paintings. Just as I'll paint the truth in spite of all the bigots... and hypocrites in Rome! Why do you bring fools to judge my work?

  • Michelangelo: He sings for pleasure, not money.

    Jerry: Well, there's a great deal of pleasure in money. You know, you... it's green and crinkly. You can fondle the bills.
