Welcome to Bandipedia!



This is a list of quotes said by Nina Cortex in Crash Tag Team Racing.


  • "Oh. It's you hairball. Well while I'm here why don't you listen to a little proposition. You bandicoots have a thing for Power Crystals right? You bring me the keys to this mean machine Von Clutch has parked here, and I'll give you this Crystal I found.
  • "So, why am I talking to you again? You're here without what I asked for, sniffing around for Power Crystals right? Grow a brain and GET ME WHAT I WANT!!!"
  • "Again, you come back to bother me. What is it with you bandicoots? Are you all just dumb? Or is this because you spin so much?"
  • "Look, are you going to do what I asked or do I have to start shaving you? 'Cause I will. Right down to the brain!"
  • "Oooh. Now that is more like it. Doesn't take much to get you to do what I want now does it? Here's your Crystal, and I'll see you on the racetrack!"
  • "Oh. It's you, Crash. Well look, as much as it pains me to say this, I need your help. There's this sweet car I wanna get, but I need a little more money. You... ugh, this is so lame! You have to get me a job. Snuffle around and find me a job. P-- Pl-- Please."
  • "What? You wanna see me beg?! Ugh, I don't think so!"
  • "Crash, what are you doing? Look, peon, stop trying my patience. Get me that job if you know what's good for you."
  • "I am through dealing with you, Crash! God, it's like talking to soap! Don't come back here until you've gotten me that job!"
  • "You did it? You got me the job? Oh Crash, you are so gullible. I'm going to use this job to get the car of my dreams, a vehicle of such power that I will be the scourge on the racetracks and vision of evil power like no Cortex before or after me!"
  • "Oh get out of here."
  • "Oh. Hey rodent."
  • "I'm going to cut to the chase here okay? You bring me a ton of coins so I can get this car working, and I give you a Power Crystal. Why do I have so many Power Crystals? None of your business, that's why! Get moving."
  • "Oh Crash. Why do you do this to yourself? Here, I find a way to make a mousetrap dodger, like yourself, useful, and instead you just annoy me. Now, get out of here before I get really testy."
  • "Why are you still here!? Go get me the coins I need before I have you fixed!"
  • "Do what I ask or I'm putting you in the kennel!"
  • "Oh, come on you fuzzy freak! What are you doing here? Bring me those coins already!"
  • "Alright! The rodent comes through with the cheese. Okay hairball, here's your Power Crystal. But with me at the wheel of this baby, you better be watching your six!"
