Detailed summary

Memorable quotes

Narrator: The city of Townsville, a locale inhabited by some of the most accursed, ill-conditioned, infernal, unprincipaled, spineless, monstrous, distasteful, felonious, gross, dark, naughty, fowl, grave, miscreated, and spoiled law-breakers to ever break laws. But fear not, fair city. For enforcing the law of the land are the pure, the proud, and the perfect Powerpuff Girls!

Narrator: Man, I am never gonna have kids. And, so once again, the day is saved, thanks to the Powerpuff Girls.
