Ruffnut and Tuffnut Thorston are fraternal twins, teenaged members of the Hairy Hooligan tribe. They are constantly arguing with each other, often to the point of physical violence, though never seriously enough to separate them for too long.
Although never said throughout the show, Tuffnut seems to be slightly more dominant twin than his sister and has a more prominent role, especially in the TV Series. Together, he and his sister love to get into trouble, even if it means getting scolded by the chief of the village. Tuff likes the idea of Ruff being in danger (as he stated that when Ruff was on fire one time, he just watched for a while before he decided to help put her out). Tuff enjoys the chance to argue and wrestle with his sister, although it usually ends with Ruff overpowering him, either verbally or physically. He shares many similar traits with his sister. The only thing that seems to be apparent in difference, is he enjoys gross things as opposed to his sister (as seen in Gift of the Night Fury). Despite having a close sibling relationship, Tuff is frustrated when he has to share everything with his sister, but he's willing to make amends with Ruff to save his dragon. Although sharing rivalry with his sister, on occasion, he will help her if she is in trouble. He often thinks highly of his own skills, claiming that he was the world's deadliest weapon.
In the TV series, Tuff appears to show a thrill-seeking and masochistic personality, displaying an attraction to dangerous situations and seems to enjoy or looks forward too whatever bodily harm he recieves (usually by his sister).
In the first season of the TV Series Ruffnut has a slightly more passive role than her brother, although she has a more prominent role in the second season. She's tomboyish in nature, mostly because she is a Viking, but she does tend to be slightly neater in terms of look and finds it offensive when Tuff negatively comments about her physique. Ruff is also seen to be extremely compassionate and selfless, as she was willing to cut her braids off in Free Scauldy so that they could serve as a subsititute for rope without hesitation to save her friend. Ruff also stubbornly stood her ground when the gang tried to persuade her to leave when the Changewings were approaching, refusing to let Scauldy die. In the same episode, it's revealed that when they were little, while Tuff was afraid of the dark, Ruff was afraid of Tuff, although she outgrew this trait. While Tuff was talking with Barf about Ruff, he concludes out that she has a lot of rage and frustration because she feels trapped since she's "a woman in a man's world", as stated in Zippleback Down.
In the TV series, despite having tamed Barf (and technically Belch), she seemed to have a slight fear of wild dragons that could potentially kill her and would often panic in situations in which she encounters a wild dragon. In Free Scauldy, it's also shown that she might be afraid of dying, even to the point of naming the Scauldron "Please-Don't-Kill-Me" until realizing he was friendly. Also in the episode, she has a slight motherly side and is quick to comfort Scauldy like how often a mother treats her kids. Ruff loves punching and wrestling with Tuff, often proving herself stronger than him. Despite their quarreling, on occasion she is shown to pull herself and Tuff out of danger. Ruff dislikes having to share everything with her brother and had a brief fallout in Twinsanity, but she reconciled when she realized Barf and Belch were in danger. She also appears to be slightly more intelligent and serious than Tuff, explictily shown in the episode Free Scauldy. In the movie, Ruff had a short-lived crush on Hiccup, but she seems to have dropped it because there is little evidence of Ruff having a crush on Hiccup during the TV series; however, in a recent release of a How to Train Your Dragon 2 Poster for the twins, it states that Ruff has now had a crush on the antagonist: Eret.
In both the TV Show and the first movie, Tuff wears a dark brown long furry animal vest with a very light pale green tunic that goes all the way past his hip. Around his waist, there's a brown sash-like belt that is tied around. He also wears light greyish-blue pants and dark brown furry boots. On his arms, he wears a long brown arm cloth arm band that starts at his elbows and ends at his wrists. His helmet is studded with four horns: the top two are bull-like, and the bottom two resemble Ox Horns. Without his helmet, his long blond hair, that ends with a brownish tint, is unevenly divided in the middle. His teeth are somewhat uneven. His necklace's pendent is a large claw or tooth that may have come from a dragon. He's relatively skinny and tan skin with dark-blue eyes. His vest is slightly lighter in the TV Series.
In the second film, it is confirmed that Tuff will have an older appearance as well as new clothes. As seen in a How to Train Your Dragon 2 book cover and the second How to Train Your Dragon 2 Trailer, it is revealed that he has adopted a dreadlocks hairstyle.
In both the TV Show and the first movie, Ruff wears a light brown, animal skin-like vest and a dark blue tunic that goes a little over her hip and ends in tatters. She wears a greyish-brown short skirt that also ends in tatters. Around her waist, she wears a metal-leather belt with an unidentified metal crest in the middle of it. Ruff wears dark brown leggings and dark blue furry boots. On her arms, she wears a long dark-greyish cloth brace that starts at her elbows and stops at the wrist. A bit of the cloth also goes through between her first and second finger. Ruff's helmet is studded with four horns, just like her brother's, albeit being longer and more slender: the top two are thinner bull-like horns while the two bottom horns are longer and curved. Without her helmet, her hair is evenly divided in the slightly to the side and short bangs across the left side of her face. She has two small braids near the top of her hair and longer braids that reach to her waist. There's also an additional braid on her back. Around her neck she wears a necklace with the pendant of a tooth or claw that may have came from a dragon. She's skinny for her age and has tan skin, just like her brother, along with a pair of pale-blue eyes.
In the second season of Defenders of Berk (Free Scauldy), Ruff sacrifices her braids so that they could serve as a substitute for the missing ropes to make Scauldy's splint. She had a short, rough boyish hair, in which Tuff says makes her look like a boy; however, in a tweet, the director of the show confirmed that this was only a temporary hairstyle. By the next next episode (Frozen), she has long hair again.
In the second film, it's confirmed that Ruff will have an older appearance, along with a new set of clothes. Part of her design was revealed in a How to Train Your Dragon 2 book cover as well as in the second How to Train Your Dragon 2 Trailer, although her full design is yet to be revealed.
Skills & Abilities
The twins are almost equal in terms of strength and speed. They are both skilled in fighting, usually sparring violently with each other when they are arguing. In the TV Series, Ruff is shown to be slightly better at fighting than her brother, often overpowering him in sparring matches and duels, as well as winning verbal arguments. Tuff even states that her slaps "are like a guy's", even to the point of tears. On the other hand, Tuff is strong enough to carry his sister for a sum of time without getting too tired. They share the same preference for the same weapon, which is a double-ended spear. It has been shown in the TV Series that the twins are the only ones who are not affected by Barf's gas, which can cause disorientation and a sick feeling, possibly because they are either immune or have gotten used to it.
Ruff and Tuff do not seem to be too bright, though Ruff is often shown to have the intellectual edge over Tuff. They're unable to sit still and pay attention without fighting and/or getting into trouble, causing most of the other Viking Teens to doubt their abilities. Often, the others of the group have to explain to them when they're about to execute a plan. Despite their inability to pay attention, they always know how to make people or dragons angry, often proving helpful for them to act as a distraction or bait. Recently in the TV Series, the twins have been shown to often have outbursts of intelligence and a smarter outlook on life, particularly Ruff, revealing that the twins are much more intelligent than they initially seem.
They also have a strange ability (purposely or not) to get in trouble no matter where they are, even in an empty room. Tuff, as seen as "View To a Skrill Part II", seems to have some ability in humor and acting, as he was able to convince Dagur that he was a Berserker and more so, for Dagur to like him even more; however in The Night and the Fury, Ruff could easily see through Tuff's lies and is able to pry him open of the truth without much effort. Tuff is also able to speak "post-lightning Snotlout" (which is gibberish that Snotlout may speak after being struck by lightning), and is the only known Viking to speak it.
They are moderately skilled in training dragons, as shown in several episodes. They both trained Terrible Terrors together in the same skill and taught them how to attack. Tuff, in particular, showed impressive skill in training a Typhoomerang (Torch), despite being caught in a trap at the time as well as able to teach him basic hand signals and simple obedience. Ruff was also able to train Scauldy and quickly develop a strong sense of loyalty and trust to each other in a short amount of time. Despite their dragon training skills, they often have trouble riding Barf & Belch because one can't ride without another and the fact that they argue over on what to do and how they would do it.
As twins, they have a strong invisible connection towards each other. They have the ability to understand each others thoughts and ideas without speaking, as shown several times to finish each others sentences or to have the same idea at the same time. They also have the ability to stay together as they are rarely too far apart for a long time. Wherever one twin goes, the other twin is never far behind, even if they intentionally try to stay away from each other. Ruff and Tuff also work incredibly well together (when they want to) and can synchronize themselves to do the same actions at the same time. It's also possible that they are able to sense where the other is and what happened to them, as other twins are able to do.
How to Train Your Dragon (Movie)
Joining the same Dragon Training class as Hiccup, at first both twins delight in taunting Hiccup over his poor performance although neither of them have much success either due to the fact that they couldn't get along in battle. Later, however, when Hiccup displays an amazing talent for subduing the dragons, they both become his avid fans (often pushing and shoving each other to be the first to talk to him). Ruff, in particular, seems to develop a crush on him and flirts with him (before Astrid pulls her away). They decide to help Hiccup fight the Red Death and bond with the Zippleback that had been trapped in the training arena before.
To confront the Red Death, the twins mount a Hideous Zippleback, which fits their fractious relationship, the two naming the dragon Barf and Belch. Each head seems to agree with one of the twins in particular- Ruff taking Barf and Tuff Belch, and they ride it to great effect in the final battle and afterwards. Notably, they were the only ones not forced from their dragon in the final battle.
Riders of Berk
Both Ruff and Tuff are dragon trainers of the Berk Dragon Training Academy, having both joined to help Hiccup train dragons.
They experienced a brief falling-out in episode 15: Twinsanity, when their conflict reaches the point where they attempt to issue separate orders to each head, Tuff in particular noting that he was tired of the two of them always sharing the same things, but eventually reconciled when Barf and Belch were in trouble, accepting that they would always share their dragon even if they could find other individual interests.
Defenders of Berk
They have a more prominent role in the episode, Zippleback Down, when the team attempts to disable traps that were left over from the time that they killed dragons. Tuff attempts to dislodge a netter trap, but ends up being caught in it. Tuff calls out to his sister to undo it and she decides to go to Berk and find Hiccup. When she attempts to fly Barf and Belch, they quickly crash land since you need two riders to ride a Zippleback. She decides to go on foot and tells the Zippleback to watch her brother while she was gone. While Ruff attempts to go find Hiccup, Tuff encounters a Typhoomerang, later revealed to be Torch. Barf and Belch attempt to protect him, but they get trapped as well. After bonding with Torch, he teaches him some basic hand-signals and officially training him. Hiccup then goes to find them, only to be thrown down when Toothless' prosthetic tail was burnt off. When a forest fire appears, Hiccup almost decides that it's too late, but Ruff and Tuff figure out a way to keep the fire away from Berk by "fighting fire with fire". They returned to Berk, riding on Torch, where he leaves after saying good-bye to Tuff. Despite their amazing feat, the twins are to have learned a lesson by releasing themselves from the trap without help. Despite their combined efforts, both of them end up being trapped again.
The twins again have a prominent role in "To View a Skrill Part I" and "Part II". The twins and Snotlout were the prime cause in the unencasement of the Skrill and they help Hiccup and the gang to tame it. After splitting up into two groups, the twins attempt to drive out the Skrill by causing a big explosion by Barf's gas and Belch's spark, but the plan fails. After saving Hiccup from the Skrill, they're chased by the Skrill and Hiccup and Toothless narrowly make it to block the blast of lightning with a plasma blast. The explosion was so great, it knocks the twins out of the sky and away from the group. They land on an outcrop of land and spot Alvin capturing the Skrill. They decide to follow the ship. Meanwhile, their disappearance causes the other Viking Teens to search for them, leaving all dragons but Toothless too exhausted to fly. Hiccup goes to find them and meets up with them on Outcast Island, where they were spying on the Outcasts. Tuff goes undercover to find out about the Berserkers' and the Outcasts' apparent truce. He then helps Hiccup to find the Skrill, but it was too late as Dagur managed to get to it first. After Hiccup duels with Dagur as well as the Skrill (after it's been freed), the twins help seal the hole and encase the Skrill in ice once again. After the chaos had ended, the twins and Hiccup return home to Berk.
Ruff has a main role in the 13th episode of Defenders of Berk, Free Scauldy. The riders find an injured Scauldron on the beach of Changewing island and the smell of her hair calms it down. She says she puts fish oil in it which reminded the Scauldron of his home. After trying to train him, they quickly bond, naming him Scauldy and singing a lullaby that her mother sang to her when she was little. Changewings start heading their way to attack and the gang make haste to get Scauldy free. They manage to get the rocks of his wing, but it is broken, but Fishlegs proposes that they make a splint. After gathering the materials, one of the vines they used to act as rope snaps and they are unable to finish the splint. Getting an idea, she takes out her knife from her vest. Later it's revealed that had cut off her braids to use to subtitute as extra rope to finish the splint and enable Scauldy to fly and more importantly, to swim. Ruff then is sad to see Scauldy go and tells him to come and visit. Tuff then comments about her looking like a boy now, in which they argue. Scauldy then makes his way to freedom.
In the episode, The Eel Effect, Ruff is shown to be slightly more clever than Tuff when she convinced him to slap himself by saying that it would hurt her too (since they're twins), clearly just saying that because she enjoyed watching Tuff hurt himself.
How to Train Your Dragon 2
Ruff and Tuff briefly appears in the second trailer, along with Barf and Belch. Although with no known speaking lines, Snotlout flirts with Ruff, where she grunts in annoyance. Also, according to the How To Train Your Dragon site, both Snotlout and Fishlegs are fighting for her affection due to her being the last single female of their age group.
With Each Other
Ruffnut and Tuffnut have a strong love/hate sibling relationship. Although most of the time quarreling and fighting over trivial things in life, they show an inseperable bond with each other and rarely spend too much time apart. They both enjoy the feeling of pain, especially if the pain is inflicted on the other twin. Tuffnut in particular has even stated that he had merely watched Ruff when she was caught on fire once before deciding to help her.
On ocassion, either Ruff or Tuff are willing to help each other. In Zippleback Down, Ruff showed concern for her brother after realizing there was a forest fire approaching towards his location as well as when she saw a wild Typhoomerang (Torch) right next to her brother. She also was willing to stay up late to help Tuff out of the trap he got caught in (though it ended in failure). In the movie, Ruff is seen dragging her brother out of the Deadly Nadder's (Stormfly) blast of fire, in spite of their arguement. Tuff showed concern for his sister, asking her to leave Scauldy behind when the Changewings were approaching and was happily riding Belch afterwards, watching his sister who was safe, despite the sacrifice she made for Scauldy to make. After she says good-bye to Scauldy she starts to feel sad, but Tuff quickly teases her about her looking like a boy, in which Tuff suceeds in making Ruff smile again.
Being their dragon, the twins had to share riding it. The twins care tremendously about their dragon, although not as much as Hiccup. One head is loyal to each twin (Barf and Ruff, Belch and Tuff) and on occasion, the heads will fight each other when the twins fight each other. Usually the heads will work in unity if they feel that their riders are in danger and feel that their rider's constant quarreling is annoying. Both dragon and rider are willing to risk their necks to save each other. Tuff even states that Barf & Belch is his "totally awesome dragon" that he shares with his "totally unawesome sister". Several times during the TV Series, Barf & Belch are seen to be extremely protective of their riders when they are in danger, as shown as they are willing to fight a Typhoomerang to defend Tuff in Zippleback Down as well as leaving the cave in The Night and the Fury to search for Ruff.
Not a lot of screen time is shown between the twins and Hiccup. Most of the time, they follow Hiccup's commands, although not always done in the right way. On occasion, they disobey him or misinterpret his orders. Despite Hiccup doubting their abilities most of the time, he acknowledges their abilities to work together if they want to. He gains respect for the twins when they figure out the idea to "fight fire with fire" in "Zippleback Down" and Tuffnut's ability to train Torch. Although finding them annoying from time-to-time, Hiccup is shown to care for them as he and the other Viking Teens attempt to find them after their disappearance in "View To A Skrill Part II" and was relieved to find out that Ruff and Tuff were both okay. He also acknowledges their decision to follow Alvin's ship to spy on him. They also care about Hiccup, (even though it's hard to tell), like when they, along with the other riders, were very happy to see that he was alive after the battle with the Red Death and when he fell down a hole, (then came out okay later), in Portrait of Hiccup as a Buff Young Man.
Although they rarely interact in the show or movie, they remain neutral to each other and will work together when it comes to it. Most times, Astrid will get angry if they do something wrong, especially if it's because they're not paying attention or just being silly. Like Hiccup, she doubts their abilities as Dragon Trainers due to their inability to pay attention, although it is assumed that she gained respect towards the twins when they put out the fire and trained Torch. On occasion, she will punch Tuff if he angers her, although Astrid is never shown on-screen to hit Ruffnut. It's assumed that Ruff and Astrid are on mutual friendly terms as they are the only girls in the group. Astrid was one of the Vikings who attempted to find the twins after they were blasted out of the sky in "View to a Skrill Part II". It is presumed that off-screen, she had attempted to find them although Stormfly soon grew exhausted, showing that she does indeed care for the twins.
Snotlout and the twins share a close relationship. Often times, the twins will follow Snotlout and act as one of his supporters when he bullies Hiccup and possibly Fishlegs as well in the first film. In the game, they listen to Snotlout's plan to cheat in the competition against Hiccup/Astrid. Snotlout often thinks the twins are incredibly dumb and in return, they sometimes disclude Snotlout from their ideas, as seen in "Fright of Passage". Although sometimes siding with Snotlout, they occasionally bully him back, like how they fooled him into thinking he was dying in "The Flight Stuff". In View to a Skrill, it's presumed that Snotlout had attempted to find the twins (as stated by Hiccup) after they disappeared after being blasted out of the sky, which shows his apparent caring personality towards them.
In the second How to Train Your Dragon 2 Trailer, Snotlout is shown to be flirting with Ruff, although she merely just grunts in annoyance.
Fishlegs and the twins rarely show any screen time together. Sometimes, the twins are seen to bully Fishlegs because of his size, although Fishlegs bests the twins in terms of knowledge. The twins, particularly Tuff, find it annoying that Fishlegs knows a lot of things. In View to a Skrill Part II, Fishlegs attempted to find the twins after they were blasted out of the sky, along with Meatlug, but ends up over-exhausting his dragon. Even so, he offered to join Hiccup on his search again and shows worry when Hiccup tells him that there was no sign of them. Although being slightly annoyed at them at the start of the episode, Fishlegs compliments Ruff in Free Scauldy for her great work with the Scauldron.
Stoick is well aware that the twins are capable of causing dangerous accidents and pranks, as well as notorious for causing mischief. Ruff and Tuff show a level of respect for Stoick, possibly because he's Hiccup's dad, but also like to make fun of him when he's not around. He's the one who possibly created the saying "Where there's a smoke, there's the twins".
- Tuff is a character from the book How to Train Your Dragon, but Ruff is an original character created for the film, seemingly to provide contrast to both Tuff and Astrid, the only other female in Dragon Training.
- Ruff is the only Viking Teen not to have been on Toothless. (Hiccup in the original film, Astrid in the original film, Snotlout in Defiant One, Tuff in Twinsanity and Fishlegs in The Iron Gronckle)
- The twin's names may indicate the phrase "Rough and Tough."
- In the video game, it's said that Tuff is the older twin by five minutes, but Ruff is slightly taller.
- They appear to be based off of Jackal and Hyena from Gargoyles
- In the film, Tuff and Ruff were voiced by T.J. Miller and Kristen Wiig, respectively. In the TV series, Ruff is voiced by Julie Marcus, while Tuff has the same voice actor. Ruff changes voice actor again in Defenders of Berk (Andree Vermeulen).
- In the books Tuff has the same name as his father (Tuff Senior), so his name in the Book Series is Tuff Junior, which, ironically, means his name would be T.J Thorston, the same first name as his voice actor.
- Tuff's vest is a different shade of gray in the series.
- Ruff has the smallest role of all the teens. This is possibly because her voice actor does not sound much like Kristen Wiig, Ruffnut's original voice actor, although in Defenders of Berk, she and her brother share a more equal role.
- Ruff seems the only teen dragon rider who did not have any clear communication with Heather.
- Tuff is the only character from the movie who did not appear in any of the Racing for the Gold clips.
- Ruff and Tuff are one of the only Vikings on Berk who has a known sibling in this case, each other. The other only known Viking siblings are Gustav and Hildegard. Dagur also said he had a sister.
- In Zippleback Down, Ruff and Tuff both mentioned that they have a large amount of back hair and that they love it dearly, although Tuff said that his back hair had went up in flames while flying over the forest fire
- Ruff and Tuff are one of the only vikings on Berk to have more than two horns on their helmets (The twins have four horns). The only other person to have more than two horns on their helmet is Mildew with six horns (but he joins the Outcasts later on).
- Although it is stated that Ruff and Tuff are fraternal twins, it's possible that they are semi-identical twins because of their uncanny resemblance towards each other.
- Tuff is the only known Viking that speaks "Post-Lightning Snotlout" (which is a gibberish language developed by Snotlout after he has been struck by Lightning)
- In View to a Skrill Part II, Tuff, under the alias "Buffnut the Beserker", hasn't told Dagur that he was in league with Hiccup and lived on Berk so it's possibly that Dagur still believes that Tuff is a Beserker.
- Tuff is the only other Viking Teen other than Hiccup to encounter Dagur face-to-face alone
- Also in the episode, Ruff states that Outcast food gives her gas, although she has never been shown on-screen to be eating it, so it's quite possible that she was lying so she wouldn't have to go spy on the Beserkers.
- In Free Scauldy, Ruff cut her hair to serve as ropes to finish Scauldy's splints, although her hair was its original length by the next episode, Frozen. Since hair takes at least five years to grow from just above chin-length all the way down to waist-length, it's possible that Ruff made hair extensions for herself.
- Ruff and Tuff have trained a dragon and later released into to the wild. It's also possible that the dragons they trained (Torch by Tuff and Scauldy by Ruff) are counterparts to each other.
- Scauldy was trained by Ruff, Torch was trained by Tuff.
- Scauldy is a Tidal Class dragon (dwells within the water and sprays water), while Torch is a Stoker Class dragon (dwells on land and manipulates fire and air to attack).
- Scauldy was hostile and a danger to the Viking teens, while Torch was more civil and friendly from the beginning.
- Torch was the one who (partially) saved Tuff and Ruff was the one who saved Scauldy.
- The twins seem to show a level of intelligence when they caught the eel pox in The Eel Effect, doing experiments on air resistance, inventing ice cream, and speaking with advanced vocabulary

- Tuffnut: Don't look at us; if we had green paint, you know where it would be.
- Tuffnut: Actually, we can get into trouble pretty much anywhere. Remember that empty room?
- Ruffnut: It be easier to get around these woods if there weren't so many trees!
- Ruffnut: Oh man! Your new dragon just ate Hiccup!
- Tuffnut: Bad Typhoomerang! Now you barf out Hiccup right now!
- Ruffnut: "Fight fire with fire!" We should make that our catch phrase!
- Tuffnut: Yeah! Or "A yak's got a do what a yak's got a do!"
- Tuffnut: Do your thing Torch!
- Tuffnut: Oh great. We do all the work and the Berserkers get the Skrill anyway.
- Ruffnut: And that's why we don't work! It accomplishes nothing!
- Tuffnut: Wait a minute, that's not the Berserkers! That's Alvin the Treacherous!
- Ruffnut: Why would Alvin want a Skrill?
- Tuffnut: Why wouldn't he? I mean, he can take out Berk with it.
- Ruffnut: Oh Yeah! So...we should do something right?
- Tuffnut: Nngh...Yes! Yes we should. Okay, I say we follow them.
- Ruffnut: Okay!...Then what?
- Tuffnut: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa! Let's not get ahead of ourselves, alright?
- Ruffnut: Yeah, good point.
- Ruffnut: Wait! How do I do that?
- Tuffnut: Do your stupid Hiccup impression.
- Ruffnut: Oh yeah! Good idea. *changes pitch in voice to match Hiccup's* Hello, nice dragon. You can be my friend. My leg fell off. All of the dragons are my friends.
- Tuffnut: Try those songs Mom used to sing to you when you were little and afraid of the dark.
- Ruffnut: You were afraid of the dark, not me! I was afraid of you!
- Tuffnut: Just sing!
- Ruffnut: *Sings* Hush little Viking, don't you cry... Or the Beserkers will stab you in the eye... Don't let the enemy see you afraid, or he's gonns gut you with a rusty blade...
- Ruffnut: Uhgnn...wait! *pulls out a knife* I have an idea!
- Tuffnut: You know what would've been more awesome?
- Ruffnut: Yeah, if it would of eaten me?!
- Tuffnut: I love it when you read my mind, Sis. *the twins bump helmets*
- Ruffnut: *to Scauldy, petting his head* I'm going to miss you, Scauldy, but look, anytime you visit, I'll just kick out Tuffnut to make room. No problem okay? *Scauldy dives underwater* Bye...
- Tuffnut: *Trying to cheer Ruffnut up* Has anyone told you that you look like a boy?
- Ruffnut: Has anyone ever told you?
- Tuffnut: When can we start yelling again?!
- Ruffnut: Whoa! This is chaos on a level I've never seen before!
- Tuffnut: I know! I want to live here.
- Ruffnut: "FOREVER!"
