Self Greetings

  • Whoa, Dudes! My name's Funky Kong!

  • Lookin' good, Kongs! Buckle up and blast off, you're outta here!
  • If you guys see Candy on your travels, tell her I'll give her surfing lessons anytime!

Only DK

  • Fancy a flight, DK Dude? You know the score, hop in and high tail it!
  • Whoa, Donkey dude! Maybe your little surf buddy's on another level. Go check 'em out!

Only Diddy

[Funky and Bluster are hiding under a mine cart]
Funky: Whoa! Maybe the kids have doom-swooped the island!
Bluster: What will we do?
Funky: Only thing we can do. Chill here and wait for the others to give us the 'All Clear' sign.
Bluster: But that could take a long time!
Funky: So, we get to know each other. I'll tell you my middle name if you, like, tell me yours.
Bluster: LET ME OUT OF HERE!!!

Cranky: I think I just spotted Eddie!
Funky: I am ready, dude!
Cranky: Not ready! Eddie!
Funky: Not ready yet? Just say when!
Cranky: Isn't there something you can do so we can communicate?
Funky: [does something on the control panel and the noise stops] All right. So, let's communicate.
Cranky: What did you do?
Funky: Turned the engine off.
Cranky: Then... what's holding us up?
Funky: Like... [the plane starts to fall] ...nothin'.

Funky: I got that zombie stuff from a movie I saw on the late, late, late, late show!
Candy: You see? There's no such thing as interplanetary visitor dudes!
Funky: Not ones that turn people into zombies, anyway. The ones I've met have always been real mellow... in an alternate life-form kind of way.
