Quotes

Shaggy: (narration) We were all in the audience of our favourite TV show, For Letter or Worse. And I was sharing a snack with a pup named Scooby-Doo.
Shaggy: (he and Scooby have snacks around them, as well as cooking a chicken on a small grill)
Daphne: (stops using nail file when she sees what they're doing) Oh you two, this is a game show, not a cooking show.
Shaggy: Like, it's not our fault this place doesn't have a snack bar.


Station manager: But Prestina didn't seem upset about losing her job.
Velma: That's what she wanted you to think. Actually, she was furious.
Prestina: That's right. If I couldn't have a show here then nobody could! And I would've gotten away with it to if...
Gang: ...We know, if it wasn't for us pesky kids and a pup named Scooby-Doo!


Shaggy: Like, I knew we could win. But I couldn't have done it without a little help from a pup named...
Scooby: ...Scooby-Dooby-Doo!
