Christopher 'Chris' Thorndyke: Hey, Knuckles. Where'd you get the robot?
Knuckles the Echidna: Well, it's not exactly mine.
Knuckles the Echidna: You'll fail, unless you have me along. I can't wait to see the look on Sonic's face when he finds out that I helped defeat Dr Eggman while he missed out on the glory. That'll mess with his ego.
Rouge the Bat: You have a serious inferiority complex, Knuckles.
Knuckles the Echidna: Huh? I have a what?
Rouge the Bat: Oh, never mind.
Sonic the Hedgehog: See? It worked out okay after all.
Knuckles the Echidna: Oh, sure. Apart from Eggman getting the Chaos Emeralds, it worked out just perfect.
Dr. Eggman: Even egg-centric geniuses like myself have hearts.
Sonic the Hedgehog: That so?
Dr. Eggman: I kid you not.
Mr. Tanaka: Maybe Mr. Knuckles is simply afraid to play a game of baseball.
Knuckles the Echidna: Afraid? I'm not afraid of anything.
Sonic the Hedgehog: Good! Then you'll play, huh?
