Movie Quote(s):
  • Casey Jones: Lead the way, Toots. April: "Toots"? Casey Jones: Babe? Sweetcakes? Ah - Princess! You wanna throw me a clue here? I'm drowning. April: Hey, you know what, that's okay. I'll do it myself. Casey Jones: Fine, it's up to you. Just don't come around here asking for my help anymore. April: Casey, I wouldn't ask for your help if you were the last THING on the face of this planet. [Casey sprawls out on the porch swing; it breaks and he falls on it to the ground]
  • The Shredder: You are here because the outside world rejects you. THIS is your family. *I* am your father. I want you all to become full members of the Foot. There is a new enemy: freaks of nature who interfere with our business. You are my eyes and ears; find them. Together we will punish these creatures. These... turtles.
  • Casey Jones: Not even close, Zip-neck. Professor and Mary Ann. Happily ever after. Donatello: No way, Atomic-mouth, Gilligan was her main man. They'd be married and have six kids by now. Casey Jones: Gilligan was a geek, Barfarooni. Donatello: *You're* the geek, Camel-breath. Casey Jones: Dome-head. Donatello: Elf-lips. Casey Jones: [of the van they were repairing] Okay, let's give this a try, Fongoid. Donatello: Here goes. What are we on? Casey Jones: Uh, "G". Donatello: Here goes, Gak-face. Casey Jones: I'm ready, Hose-brain.
  • Splinter: Kids.
  • Michaelangelo: [while Leonardo slices the pizza] Yes, friends, the new tubo ginsu. Wa-hoo! It dices, it slices, and it makes French fries and three different... [a pizza slice lands on Splinter's head] Michaelangelo: WHOOPS. Splinter: Kids.
Movie Trivia:
  • All three newswomen seen or mentioned in the film have the name of a month: April, May, and June.
  • In the Foot Warehouse, the boxes in the foreground near the skate half-pipe read Mirage, which was one the comic book company that originally published Eastman and Laird's Ninja Turtles comic.
  • In the film, April is a reporter for Channel 3. In the cartoon, she was a reporter for Channel 6, and in the comics (in her first appearance), she worked for a scientist named Baxter Stockman, who was a recurring enemy of the Turtles'. She escaped from him when he tried to kill her for threatening to expose a criminal scheme he was plotting using his mass-produced "Mouser" robots.
  • This was the highest-grossing independent film of all time, having made over $133 million in domestic box office.
  • In the original trailer, there is a shot of the turtles rising up from what looks like a swamp. The shot was cut from the final release but is part of a longer scene that was later used near the end of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze (1991).
