- Bloom: "I'm feeling so much negative energy in here. What's this thing doing to my power?"
- Fake Professor Avalon: "It's taking all of your power and giving it to me Bloom. Isn't it marvelous?"
- Musa: "So that's it? What is that?"
- Griselda: "That is a monster designed to challenge your specific powers."
- Bloom: "I don't mean to underestimate our opponent, but it dosen't seem so tough."
- Griselda: "Believe me, this creature's plenty tough. It is part witch and part space goblin."
"Do you think I'd look good as a brunette?"
"Flora! Trust your heart!"
- Miss Faragonda: "And why did Darkar capture you?"
- Professor Avalon: "I don't know, but please, you have to believe me."
- Miss Faragonda: "You're saying there's been an impostor teaching at Alfea this whole time. I'm sorry, but why should I believe you?"
- Professor Avalon: "I have proof. It's the letter of recommendation offering me the teaching position at Alfea."
Miss Faragonda examines the letter.
- Miss Faragonda: "That's my signature. (gasp) This letter's authentic."
- Tecna: "So this impostor was pretending to help Bloom, but I'll bet he was the one that made her steal Alfea's codex in the first place."

- Musa: "But how did he fake all that? Seriously, he's a great teacher."
- Real Professor Avalon: "He certainly is. Darkar's magic is so powerful that it's capable of great deception."
