Ooh, what was the other half? Chris:
Try not to speak. Kenan: Are you all thinking of I'm thinking? Kel:
My boy! Kel: We gotta find the other half of the frog! Kenan:
No, man! Kenan:
You know any lawyer we can call? Chris:

My cousin's in a circus. Kenan:
I know someone who'll handle it for free. Kel:
My cousin from the circus? Kenan:
No, man. Me!

He had to press a button to turn on a green light, the other buttons though sends a nasty buzzing sound to headphones worn by the Rockmores & "Ezekiel" (actually Chris in disguise). Naturally he screws up and in the end he admits he's a fraud.
Kel: I'm so sorry! I'm sorry!
Kenan: Your sorry?
Kenan: You just a child? Here I come, I'm gonna get you for messing up my- (Kel pressed the button that sends a buzz in Kenan's headphones) -Ow, plan! (Kel pressed the button again) You're supposed to be my boy! (Kel pressed the button again) This could've worked! (Kel rapidly pressed the button) OW! OW! I'm gonna beat ya-OW!

Then they buy a FROZEN dinner and realize they can't make it in time to serve it... so they throw the microwave in the oven hoping to speed up the process. The kitchen blows up. In a last ditch effort, they steal Chris' turkey dinner he ordered at a restaurant and... well, eventually everything came crashing down at that point for Kenan and Kel.
- In "Fenced In", Kel points out the irony of their situation:
Kel: Hey, Kenan, it is kinda funny when you think about it! I mean, we made a date with two pretty girls! And all the only thing they care about is us being on time! Wait, here's the funny part, you made a little map and everything! And we left three hours early, and now we're stuck in a fence!

- Kel: Which trials?
- Sharla accidentally blew dust on Becky. It made her itchy. Kenan peaked to see her scratching.
- Then Kenan walked up to her to sniff her, then walks back to the backroom. She smelled the barbecue sauce that was squirted on her.

Kel: Maybe it was ninjas that took your watch.
Kenan: Yes, it makes perfect sense!
Kel: I know, because ninjas are shadow warriors that can sneak up. 'I'm a ninja. I'm a ninja.'
Kenan: STOP THAT! I'm not talking about no ninja! I'm saying that it makes perfect sense that he wouldn't wear the watch he stoled at the place I work.

Kenan: Well, remember when I said "Kel, grab the keys"?
Kenan: WHY DIDN'T YOU??
Kel: You were serious about that? I thought you were telling a joke.
Kenan: A joke?! Kel, if it was a joke, it would have been funny!
Kel: I don't know, I've heard a couple of your jokes.
(Kenan mocks laughter)
- "I'm Gonna Get You Kenan" has Kel tackling a nun, think she's the Jackhammer. Blasphemy, right?

Kel: Oh, Mr. Jackahamma! The door's open! Oh, it's close! Wait, wait, wait, it's open! No, it's close! Ha-ha-ha-ha! Wanna come out?
- Kel doesn't recognize Kenan, who is in disguise with an afro and a mustache.
Kel: Has anyone seen Kenan?
Kenan: Kel, it's me.
Kel: And I'm me.
- When the Jackhammer arrives in Kenan's house and prepares to take his revenge on Kenan, Kenan tries to save himself by offering the former pizza. Jackhammer actually becomes interested and asks if its pepperoni; Kenan meekly says that it isn't and he quickly bolts as Jackhammer chases him around the house.
- "Clothes Encounters"
Kenan: But I'll tell you one thing: if I do go out with her, man, I am not wearing this stupid, ugly, rice pants. You know, for somebody that works in a clothes store, she sure has bad taste in clothing.
Kel: Yeah, she got bad taste in perfume, too. She smells like a stinky water buffalo.
- Kenan falls in the fitting room and splits the rice pants he was trying on.
Kel: Hey, Kenan! You hear that? It sounded like somebody ripped their rice pants and fell on the floor.
Kenan: Yeah, Kel. That's exactly what it sounded like.
- He then jumps out of the store. He runs back home, stopping midway to use a newspaper to cover himself after getting tired of using his shirt to do so. When he gets back, he forgets about his mom throwing a baby shower and the women all see him in the living room.
