"The Fish and Visitors"
Monster Talent is the 5th episode of The Looney Tunes Show.
Gossamer is a sweet, shy and lovable giant hairy red monster, and unfortunately, his height and odd looks make him the perfect target for schoolyard bullies. His mother, Witch Lezah, wants a positive male role model to help Gossamer fit in and make friends, and after Daffy asserts that the only way to help a weirdo is with another weirdo’s expertise, he gets forced into the job as Gossamer’s new guide. After a few failed experiments to boost Gossamer’s social stature, Daffy decides the school's upcoming talent show is the perfect path to popularity. Meanwhile, Bugs becomes an unlikely celebrity after appearing in a television commercial for Speedy Gonzales’s restaurant, Pizzarriba. His catchphrase, "I like it," takes the town by storm, and in the end, Bugs’ stardom helps Gossamer overcome his woes.

Granny appears in this episode, but had no lines.
- Daffy: (after seeing Witch Lezah) Whoa! (Bugs removes the 3D glasses) Ugh, back to 2D. What a bummer.
- Daffy: The only person who can help a weirdo like Gossamer is another weirdo. (drinks his protein shake)
Witch Lezah: That's a great idea. You can take him to school tomorrow.
Daffy: What? No. Find another weirdo. No one helped me out when I was a kid, so I'm not helping him out.
Witch Lezah: You know, I'm not always a nice witch.
- Gossamer: (to Daffy) My mom says that you're a bum and that you mooch off of Mr. Bunny.
Daffy: Well, your mom is stupid. Don't tell her I said that!
- Daffy: (after being saved by Gossamer from the fire) You saved my life...I'd like to repay you...BY GIVING YOU ONE OF THESE! (fails to punch Gossamer and his fist deflates) It's like those protein shakes have made me weaker.
- (Bugs drives up to his and Daffy's house to find it on fire)
Bugs: My house!
Fireman: Hey, it's the "I Like It" guy!
- Fireman: Do you live here? (turns off the water) say it!
Bugs: My house is burning down!
Fireman: That's not the line.
Bugs: Turn on the water!
Fireman: No you remember! The little mouse goes "What do you think, sir?" and you say...
Bugs: ... I LIKE IT!!!
- Witch Lezah: That's my baby!
- Daffy: It's just as painful in 3D.
