- Lazlo's ECHO: Good morning, my pretties! What shall we learn today? Jumping through flaming hoops? Tightrope Walking? Brain burrowing? Just kidding! No brain burrowing for you, sillies. You are the dawn of a new era of symbiotic companions!
- Lazlo's ECHO: I'm... so... sorry. Zarpedon ordered it. She... said it was for the good of everyone! That only her infection could save the Vault! I'm sorry, my pretties, but I must... let you go. For all our sakes. Be free, my beautiful buglets! Prance away into the night! Don't forget me!
- Lazlo's ECHO: So it seems -- hnggg -- my project to turn brain bugs into fun for the whole family -- HNNRRRG! -- didn't work. Released into the wild, they regained their natural instinct to burrow. And they are -- HRRRRNGGG! FLESHEATERS! -- excuse me. As they are a species of neurovorous parasite, they, um -- rapidly infested the entire section, AKA, the infection Zarpedon was talking about. She -- hnngngggg -- tricked me. I'm initiating quarantine protocols... while I still can!
- Lazlo's ECHO: Anointed with ooze, you, proper offering of flesh. Dish best served warm -- HNNG -- youuu!
