James: "There you are you rascals."
Jessie: "Oooo, what's in there huh?"
Meowth: "Something a lot older than me."
James pulls out bottlecaps from the box.
James: "It's my very first bottlecap collection. I've had it since I was a toddling tot of two. To brush them against my cheek. WOW! I can not believe you've been hiding in here all this time."
Jessie: "A Poké ball. Yours as well?"
James: "And how. The very Pokémon I used to play with when we came to Sinnoh. Come on out Carnivine."
A Carnivine comes out and bite James' head.
James: "You see, Victreebel's not the only Pokémon who likes to take a nip at my noggin."
Jessie: "And that is a good thing?"
Meowth: "Wow, sounds like the green galoot's really happy to see ya."
