[holds up her carrot recorder pen, revealing its recorded Bellwether confessing]
Judy Hopps: it's your word against yours.
Judy Hopps: It's called a hustle, sweetheart. Boom.
[flashes a triumphant grin as Chief Bogo shows up with handcuffs behind Bellwether]
Bellwether: [Cornering Judy and Nick in a pit-like exhibit in the Natural History Museum] Well, you should've just stayed on the carrot farm, huh. It really is too bad, I... I did like you!
Judy Hopps: What're you going to do, kill me?
Bellwether: Oh ho ho ho, no, of course not.
[Aims the Night Howler gun at Nick]
Bellwether: He is!
Judy Hopps: [a pellet hits Nick] No! Oh, Nick!
Bellwether: [calling the ZPD] Yes, police! There's a savage fox in the National History Museum! Officer Hopps is down! Please hurry!
Judy Hopps: No! Nick! Don't do this! Fight it!
Bellwether: Oh, but, he can't help it! Can he? Since preds are just biologically predisposed to be savages.
[Nick growls and chases Judy]
Bellwether: Gosh, think of the headline: "Hero cop killed by savage fox!"
Judy Hopps: So that's it. Prey fears predator and you stay in power?
Bellwether: Yeah. Pretty much.
Judy Hopps: It won't work!
Bellwether: Fear always works, and I'll dart every predator in Zootopia, to keep it that way.
Bellwether: There! Traffic cams for the whole city. Well this is so exciting, actually. I mean, you know, I never get to do anything this important.

Bellwether: Feels good to be appreciated.
Bellwether: I framed Lionheart; I can frame you too!
Bellwether: Think of it. 90% of the population united against a common enemy. We'll be unstoppable!
Bellwether: I framed Lionheart, i can frame you too. It's my word against yours.
Judy Hopps: Oh. Actually...

Judy Hopps: [in a victorious tone] It's called a hustle, sweetheart. Boom.
[the rest of the ZPD arrive to arrest Bellwether and her henchmen]
Judy Hopps: With all due respect, sir., a good cop... is supposed to serve and protect, help the city, not tear it apart.
Judy Hopps: [Judy sighs and turns over her badge in resignation] I don't deserve this badge.
Chief Bogo: Hopps.
Bellwether: Judy, you've worked so hard to get here, it's what you wanted since you were a kid. You can't quit.
Judy Hopps: Thank you for the opportunity.
