This is where Dusty talks to Blaze and Crusher meets Ripslinger in Blaze's Big Race.
[Blaze is in his garage when Dusty Crophopper comes in]
Dusty: Uh, Blaze?
Blaze: [sighs] Dusty, like I said before, I don't wanna talk about it.
Dusty: But there's something I really need to tell you!
Blaze: Ugh, what is it?
Dusty: I just thought you could use uh... some help.
Blaze: Help? From who?
Dusty: Like from uh... Skipper.
Blaze: That old coursair down at the end of Propwash Junction Airport runway?
Dusty: Yeah. He's a war hero.
Blaze: He's an old crankshaft.
Dusty: But my buddy, Chug says that Skipper was a professional trainer in the Navy. And trust me, his stern looks really do make you feel shy.
Blaze: [scoffs] Easy for you to say.
Dusty: Yeah. I know. But you have to trust me.
Blaze: [looks back]

Dusty: No fear! They'd shoot ya as soon as they look at ya.
Blaze: I hope you were right about this. [looks back and sees no one] Dusty?
Dusty: [peeks out from behind some bricks] I'll wait here.
[The door opens and Dusty ducks out of sight. Skipper comes out, wearing a stern look on his face. Blaze rolls back a little and smiles shyly]
Blaze: Hey there, Skipper.
Skipper: You lucky to be number 51?
Blaze: I'm trying out for the big Dragon Island Duel. And
