TRACY: No, I’ve got to turn myself in and go back to jail. I can’t put all of you in any more danger. We should’ve thought more before we broke out.  My dad could lose the Har-de-Har Hut.  And, Link, you could go to prison for what you did tonight…  And Ms. Motormouth, we’ve just been on three channels of news, I don’t want you to get arrested for harboring a fugitive. And, Penny… your mother will kill you! This time it won’t be like Mother-Daughter Day again.  Mrs. Von Tussle said there’ll be armed guards at the Eventorium. Someone could get shot. I just think it’s stupid we can’t all dance together.
