In 1996, when the first season of The Real Adventures of Jonny Quest made its debut, the show brought action, drama, and mystery to the small screen. The series was big on excitement, and high on adventure, and often liked to put its core cast of characters in precarious situations at every opportunity.

The first season of The Real Adventures of Jonny Quest was also responsible for bringing some very bizarre lines of dialogue to the screen. This dialogue came from Race Bannon – one of the core members of Team Quest.

Almost every time Race opened his mouth during the first season of the show, it was to deliver lines of dialogue loaded with similes. Rather than just say something straight forward, he would start spouting gibberish at every opportunity, which got more frequent as the show went on.

In this post, I am taking a look at Race Bannon’s strangest lines of dialogue. Below you will find some truly odd quotes, which will no doubt leave you scratching your head, as you wonder what the heck he’s going on about?!
