In this incredibly long quote, Zack and Ivy recap everything (and I mean everything) that happened in "A Date With Carmen Part 1".

Ivy: "In our last episode, Carmen Sandiego broke into a top secret Russian lab."

[From Part 1 Carmen breaks into the lab.]
Carmen: "Timing is everything."
Computer: "You have ten seconds, Carmen."
Zack: "And made a clean getaway with everything she needed to build her own time machine."
Ivy: "Which was all part of Carmen's greatest plot ever: to travel back in history and steal things that no longer exist."
[Paul Revere's Liberty Bowl vanishes.]
Someone says: "Whoa! It disappeared!"
Ivy: "But that began to change history."

[Zack and Ivy chase Sara Bellum over Boston.]
Zack: "What the heck's that flag on the state house?"
Ivy: "It's the Queen of England's royal standard."
Zack: "Yeah. Like the United States never became the United States and stayed part of the British Empire."
[At Fenway Park the Chief slowly becomes British.]
The Chief: "I just can't seem to control this balley accent slipping all over the place. I'll do a systems check. Back after these messages...tally-ho! Sorry.
Ivy: "So while the Chief started talking like Sting..."
Zack: "We used Acme's very own time-hopping gizmo, the chrono-skimmer, to zip through the ages and try to straighten everything out."
[The detectives' first attempt at traveling through time.]
Ivy: "The chrono-skimmer works! We've gone back in time, Zack!"
Red coat: "Colonial rebels! Seize them!"
Zack: "I don't believe this!"
Ivy: "Run!"
Zack: "First we found out Paul Revere, who was supposed to be a humongous hero..."
Ivy: "Was now, thanks to Carmen's interference, a total outcast!"
[The Colonists yell at Paul Revere.]
Woman in window: "Traitor!"
Man in window: "We trusted you! It was your responsibility to warn us the British were coming!"
Zack: "Carmen had somehow kept Paul Revere from making his midnight ride."
[Paul Revere tries to explain.]
Woman in window: "And you fell off your horse!"
Paul Revere: "I've told it neighbors, my horse stumbled and I with him. I could not warn the colonists as I promised."
Zack: "And that changed the course of the American Revolution."
Ivy: "But Carmen wasn't finished. She time traveled back even further in history, crashing the Boston Tea Party."
[Carmen steals the ships containing the tea.]
Man dressed as Indian: "Look, there's a red coat aboard!"
Zack: "That's no red coat!"
Ivy: "That's Carmen Sandiego!"
Ivy: "Then Carmen headed to Philadelphia..."
Zack: "Just as Ben Franklin began his famous experiment..."
Ivy: "And stole the key right off his kite!"
[Carmen snatches the key.]
Ben Franklin: "Woman! I say, what's the meaning of this?"
Ivy: "All modern technology started fading away including Acme's mainframe."
[The Chief fades away.]
The Chief: "Alarm! Alarm! System... Warning Will Robinson! System... Failure!"
Ivy: "And now if we don't get that key back from Carmen..."
Zack: "We'll be trapped in history forever!"

They get the key back but the Chief still talks with an accent and Carmen gets her time traveling car back.

Zack: "But it looks like the good old U.S. of A. is still very, very British."
Ivy: "And it looks like Carmen is back in the time traveling business."

Carmen the Conqueror.

Carmen: "Remember no matter how hard you try detectives, time conquers all but Carmen conquers time."

Zack falls and Ivy catches him as they try to stop the henchmen from stealing the tea.

Ivy: "Could you possibly make a little more noise?"

Ivy and Zack stop Carmen from stealing the tea by releasing the rockets a little early.

Zack: "Time to rock and roll."
      [He rolls a barrel into Al and Pearl]
Ivy: "Correction Zack, it's time to rocket and roll."

A Carmen Clue.

Carmen: "Well done, detectives. That's one for you. Maybe I'll give you a ring sometime and we'll play again."

Zack and Ivy find Carmen at the Bell Foundry.

Zack: "Any ideas?"
Ivy: "Well, like I always say, when push comes to shove...shove hard!"

A time traveling Carmen Sandiego is a very dangerous thing. Very cool, but very dangerous.

Carmen: "No matter, detectives. While you're hanging around here forever...I'll just go through time and steal the horseshoe all over again."

Zack complains about something...

Zack: "Carmen's right. Now we're stuck in eighteenth century London. No pizza, no videos. What am I talking about? There's not even tv!"

Ivy roughed up Pearl and Al, Carmen makes a run for it.

Carmen: "I agree, Ivy. Good work. You beat me this time, but then I have lots of time. All the time in the world."
Zack: "Hey!"
Ivy: "No you don't!"
Carmen: "As you said earlier...want to bet?"

Catching up to Paul Revere, and trying to return his horseshoe.

Zack: "And there he goes!"

Ivy: "Uh oh. I have a real bad feeling about this."

Carmen: "Never say never, Player. See you next crime...and maybe in another time."
