Foreman: "As you can see, I'm all wet."
Zelda: "Speaking of all wet, where's our local hero?"

Link: "Ta-da! You called for a hero, Princess?"
Zelda: "Yes, but I guess you'll have to do."

Triforce of Wisdom: "To find your father, royal daughter, you must search beneath the water."

Link: "Saved ya again, Princess. Kiss me."
Zelda: "Sure. Picker up, hero."
Link: "Oh, boy! Oh, darn. I forgot about these helmets."
Zelda: "I didn't."

Link: "Kiss me, Princess."
Zelda: "Sure. Why not? I guess it won't spoil the day too much."

Dumb Lines (5:39 PM)


Rant (5:09 PM - 5:54 PM)

I love how Zelda pats Link on the head and says "Good boy." =)

I also love how Zelda tosses Link away when he's standing on a flower. =)

Zelda again expresses her dislike for Link's bad jokes - while making a joke of her own. =)

Zelda's current excuse for not kissing Link: she hates wet kisses. =)

I love how Zelda teases Link with a kiss, knowing that it won't happen. =)

Three opportunities for a kiss and three strikes out. Hehe.

This is the first episode of the series without Gannon, which is a nice change.

Link exclaims "Excuuuse me, Princess!" and asks Zelda for a kiss. The episode was cowritten by Bob Forward. It's no surprise that he got primary writing credit.

Lesson: Waterslides are fun.

Despite Link's infamous line and demands for a kiss, "Fairies In the Spring" is a good episode.

This is a fun episode. The fact that I found no bad lines should indicate how good this episode is.

Zelda again demonstrates her capabilities as a fighter and as a magician.

Overall, "Fairies In the Spring" is a good episode. I look forward to reviewing the next one.

Usefulness ratings:

Link: 7 (temporarily defeating the water monster, freeing Zelda from the snake, defeating Zelda's monster, defeating the fish, temporarily defeating 3 water monsters)
Zelda: 5 (defeating the snake, coming up with the idea to zap each other's monsters, defeating Link's monster, slowing down the fish, getting the fairies to stop attacking)
Spryte: 0 ()

I didn't count all of the water monsters that Link temporarily defeated, only those that allowed Zelda to get to safety: the first one and then three more.

Spryte was in this episode only for a short moment at the end, and she doesn't get any points.

The running total usefulness ratings for the series so far are:

Link: 119 (11 episodes)
Zelda: 54 (11 episodes)
Spryte: 7 (7 episodes)

That's the end of my review of "Fairies In the Spring". I'll review "The Missing Link" next. See you all in my next review!
