  • Gi: Oh, that poor little whale...!
    Gaia: An orphan. Courtesy of Plunder and Blight. I don't mind telling you it makes my blood boil.
  • Ma-Ti: But how can they get away with it?
  • Gaia: Unfortunately, the International Whaling Treaty has some loopholes. Some people still kill whales; in the name of scientific research.
    Gi: Research? That's killing! That's... that's...
    Gaia: (putting her forehead on the top of Gi's head) Cruel, dishonest, inhumane, and in this case – illegal. That's why I want you to put a stop to it.
    Gi: You don't have to ask twice. Let's go!
    Gaia: (watching the Planeteers rush off) If the rest of the world were like them, I could take a permanent vacation. (touching the baby whale's image on Planet Vision) Oh, well. Now, what are we gonna do about you, little one?
  • Plunder: Unfortunately, we're running out of room. Time to head back into port.
    Blight: I've got something that will cheer you up. Come by my lab and I'll show you the results of my latest research.
    Plunder smiles to himself.
  • Captain Planet returns to the rings.
    Plunder: Nice move, Blight! You let the big one get away!
    Blight: Don't carpet me, Plunder! Oh, men!
    Plunder: Hmph, women.
  • MAL: (in sing-song voice) Planeteers in the power room, Planeteers in the power room!
  • MAL: (in sing-song voice) Planeteers in the water, Planeteers in the water!
  • Captain Planet: By your powers combined...
    Plunder: O-oh!
    Captain Planet: (finishing his catchphrase) ... I am Captain Planet!
  • Gaia: (showing the adopted baby whale) Our newest Planeteer!
    Gi: Oh, Gaia! The orphan!
    Gaia: There's no way I could see this little one die.
    Gi: But how are we going to feed it?
    Gaia: Just leave that to a mother. (holds out her hand, summoning the mother whale who saved Takashi {son of Maseo, the former whaler}, and her calf) A mother whale, that is.
    Gi: That's what I call one big happy family.
