Quotes

T.K.: "Boy, that jerk really left the Digital World in a big mess, didn't he?"
Davis: "Hey, listen, it's not my fault. I'm doing the best I can."
T.K.: "I meant Ken, not you, Davis."

— Davis misunderstands T.K. as they continue to help rebuild the DigiWorld.

Davis: "Some teachers are just nitpickers about such little things."
Yolei: "What was it this time?"
Davis: "I was accidentally playing soccer indoors, and somehow a window broke. Boy, Mr. Reynolds is sure is a grouch."
Cody: "Not again."
T.K.: "It's the fourth time. But hey, who's counting, right?"
Kari: "Really?"
Davis: "Huh? I thought it was at least six!"

— Davis' excuse for being late is no surprise to the DigiDestined.

Davis: "They're a major pain!"
Kari: "Aw, they're cute."
Davis: "Oh, they're so sweet."
Veemon: "That's not what you said a second ago."

—Veemon calls Davis out on his sudden change of mind about the Punimon.

"WHY CAN'T I DIGIVOLVE?! TELL ME WHY! Okay, I'm done."

Veemon's failure to digivolve causes him to do a very good imitation of Mimi.

"I thought the Control Spires had been knocked out of commission when Ken left, but this makes me think they just might be active again."

T.K. comes to a logical conclusion as to why the Digimon suddenly can't digivolve.

"Ken's back?! And Wormmon can digivolve?!"

T.K. says what everyone's thinking.

Ken: "Are you all right, Wormmon?"
Wormmon: "Well, I've been better. I let her get away."
Ken: "Don't worry, my friend. We'll have another chance."
Wormmon: "You're right, Ken. Next time, I won't miss."

— Ken and Wormmon discuss their reason for being in the DigiWorld.

Dubbing changes
