In the Pokémon Adventures manga
In this episode, Team Rocket attempts to recite their motto in a sewer before the horrible smells get to them.
:'''Meowth:''' That's them and they're on their way to the PokemonPokémon Center.
:'''Jessie:''' To protect the world from devastation!
:'''James:''' To unite all peoples within our nation!
:'''James:''' And let you know that when you snooze, you lose.
:'''Jessie:''' Go ahead, take your nap and float off to dreamland.
:'''James:''' Then your PokemonPokémon will be under our command.
:'''Jessie:''' Jessie!
:'''James:''' Eeeee! James!
====Meowth filling in for Jessie or James====
On many occasions, because Jessie or James weren't around, Meowth would fill the missing member lines. This first happened in ''[[EP017|Island of Giant PokemonPokémon]]'', when Meowth, along with {{TP|Jessie|Ekans}} and {{TP|James|Koffing}}, were separated from Jessie and James. When they discover [[Ash's Pikachu]], {{AP|Bulbasaur}}, {{AP|Charmander}}, and {{AP|Squirtle}}, who were separated from their Trainer as well, Meowth attempted to recite the motto but failed because Jessie and James weren't around. In ''[[EP110|The Stun Spore Detour]]'', where Meowth and James were following Misty to get some [[Salveyo Weed]] to heal Jessie from an attack by a wild {{p|Vileplume}}'s {{m|Stun Spore}}. It happened again in ''[[AG048|ZigZag Zangoose!]]'', in which Jessie was training Seviper, and James, Meowth and Wobbuffet tried to steal [[Ash's Pikachu]]. Later, in ''[[AG080|That's Just Swellow]]'', Jessie and Meowth tried to steal the losing flying Pokémon almost at the end of the Contest, and because James was still participating on it, Meowth and Jessie said the motto all by themselves. In ''[[AG143|The Saffron Con]]'', meanwhile Jessie was at an operation room, Meowth and James tried to steal some Pokémon. When Ash and his friend saw them, they said a special motto. Also, in ''[[AG159|Off the Unbeaten Path]]'', while James was participating in the [[Pokémon Orienteering]] Contest, Jessie and Meowth tried to steal the prize and some Pokémon. When they were spotted by {{ashfr}}, they said their motto. Meanwhile, they were saying that Ash and his friends saved the Pokémon and the prize, leaving Jessie and Meowth really angry. In ''[[XY049|Bonnie for the Defense!]]'', Jessie and Meowth said the motto together, surprising Ash and his friends while they were escorting a lost {{p|Lapras}} back to the ocean. James's absence was later explained by him being waiting further ahead, ready to catch the group off-guard in case they got away.
;''[[AG048|ZigZag Zangoose!]]''
Jessie was at a contest, so James and Meowth had to say the motto, and steal [[Ash's Pikachu]] and other Pokémon again.
:'''Meowth''': Prepare for trouble, cause we're stealing PokemonPokémon and having a ball!
:'''James''': Make it double, that's all!
:'''Meowth''': Evil as old as the galaxy!

In the [[Pokémon Adventures]] manga, the "Rocket" in Team Rocket is apparently their motto, which is an acronym for:
