Daphne: Gosh, I feel so rugged. Does this helmet clash with my jumper?

Shaggy: Don't forget the bad boy fridge Scoob and I added. It's like totally stocked! Well it was before that long wait at the border.

Velma: Fred, are you sure you've driven off road before?
Fred: Well, not exactly, but I got a high score on "Video Dirt Demon". (Hit's a tumbleweed) Fast move!
Velma: I'm suddenly very afraid.

Shaggy: Now I understand why they call it a "Pit Crew". Like, it's the pits!

Gibby Norton: And I would've gotten away with it if not for you meddling off the road racers.
