I should have got myself a budgie

T-Bag: What are you doing down there, you idiot?
T-Shirt: Listening to the radio.
T-Bag: Oh, can't you listen to it somewhere else?
T-Shirt: What, you mean like my bedroom.
T-Bag: I was thinking more like Africa, turn it off.
T-Shirt: No way.
T-Bag: Oh, you're becoming a right little degenerate you know, cheeky, lazy, you never do anything to help me. I mean, what's the point, I let you live here out of the goodness of my heart and all I get in return is a bucket load of grief, I mean is it too much to ask for a little bit of respect and civility just once in a while.
T-Shirt: Sorry, did you say something?
T-Bag: Oh I give up, I do, I do, I do, my mother was right I should have got myself a budgie.

Always hang loose

Penny: What a lovely beach, great. Hello.
Ed Banger: Hi.
Penny: T-Shirt, you little rat. What are you doing here?
Ed Banger: Sheesh, what an uptight chick. All these bad vibes are doing my brain in man. Ed Banger can't handle all this crazy hassle.
Penny: Ed Banger?
Ed Banger: Yeah.
Penny: Did you say your name was Ed Banger?
Ed Banger: Sure did. Eh, you must recognize Ed Banger. Woodstock, Monterey, the Isle of Wight... I had my hot dog stand at all of those.
Penny: Erm Ed, I'm really sorry. I didn't mean to upset...
Ed Banger: Eeeh, no sweat babe, just remember, mellow out and always hang loose.
Penny: Yeah, I'll certainly try to.
(Sonny walks in).
Sonny Daze: Eddie baby.
Ed Banger: Sonny, my main man.
Sonny Daze: Hey hey hey, hey you're looking beautiful man.
Ed Banger: You too buddy boy, hey.
Sonny Daze: Dig the flares, far out.
Penny: Excuse me.
Sonny Daze: Sorry baby but er, this cat's on his way to a gig.
Penny: Look, I only wanted to...
Sonny Daze: Yeah, cool it little lady, we're running late. Wh... you wait here like a good little girl and Eddie'll give you an autographed photo after the show.
Penny: You don't understand.
Ed Banger: Hey, don't forget what I said.
Penny: Yeah, yeah, yeah, mellow out, always hang loose.

A One-Legged Horse

Ed Banger: Far out. Triple wow.
T-Bag: Oh, I'm sorry I was a bit hard on you earlier.
Ed Banger: This is really freaky.
T-Bag: I didn't know you were going to pull off a stunt like that.
Ed Banger: Hey babe, we're on a one way ticket to cosmic city here.
T-Bag: Oh, yes, yes T-Shirt. Now if you could just hand over the sunstone.
Ed Banger: Say, who are you? What's with that weird old gear? What's going on here?
T-Bag: Yoooooouuu, youuuuu just have to wind me up, don't you? You can't simply come back and just hand over the sunstone, oh no, you have to give me all this flash smart gobbledegook, just give me the stone.
Ed Banger: What stone?
T-Bag: Ohhhhh, is my hand itching to thump you mate.
Ed Banger: Hey, cool it babe.
T-Bag: If you don't hand it over I'm going to knock your teeth so far down your throat you'll have to sit on 'em to eat your breakfast, arrggghh.
Ed Banger: Here, take it, take it. Boy, this is turning out to be a real downer.
(Ed takes of a chain with bells on it).
T-Bag: T-Shirt youíre about as much use as a one-legged horse on derby, forget it, forget it, Iíll go and get the sunstone myself, you wait here and meditate on this!
(T-Bag hits Ed Banger).
Ed Banger: Oh.
(T-Bag uses her magic and disappears).
Ed Banger: There's a chick who's karma's not in a state of equilibrium.

T-Bag: Oh cheap rubbish, now about that little something.

Sonny Daze: Shove love and take a piece of this! Have a nice swim back to the shore.

T-Bag: You! You!
Ed Banger: Hey you look real spaced out, here sit down, sit down. What you need is a nice refreshing cuppa tea. Here, drink this, be happy.
T-Bag: What are you trying to do? Poison me or what?
Ed Banger: Huh?
T-Bag: What is that muck?
Ed Banger: Rosehip and Petunia.
T-Bag: T-Shirt, if you haven't written your will, now's the time to get scribbling.
Ed Banger: Hey, what's with the T-Shirt man? The name's Banger.
T-Bag: Hmm, Banger.
Ed Banger: Ed Banger, hey.
T-Bag: Oh, so you mean you're not T-Shirt.
Ed Banger: Never was, never have been.
(T-Bag and Ed see T-Shirt in the saucer).
T-Bag: Hmmmmmm.
Ed Banger: Wow, what a gas.
T-Bag: What a gas? I'll give you gas. I'll give you enough gas to launch an airship. Hang on to your beads and bells baby. You are coming with me.

"Cosmic City Boom"
In the T-Room scene with T-Bag and Ed Banger a boom-mic can be seen travelling across the top of the screen. It appears for a few seconds after T-Bag says 'I didn't know you were going to pull off a stunt like that' at the start of Ed's line of 'Hey babe, we're on a one way ticket to cosmic city here'.
