Homer Zuckerman: [after Wilbur is awarded his bronze medal at the fair] Thank you, thank you, everybody. He's some pig, and if I have anything to do with it, he's gonna live to a ripe old age!
Homer Zuckerman: Lurvy?
Lurvy: Yes, sir?
Homer Zuckerman: Make a large crate, and paint it green with gold letters.
Lurvy: Uh, what should the letters say?

Avery Arable: Probably having such a good time he hates to go home.
Lurvy: He's not sick, is he?
Homer Zuckerman: Probably just homesick. I guess we all are.
Homer Zuckerman: Well, what can I say about this pig that hasn't already been said? I know a lot of you folks have come out to the farm and you've seen the words, and a lot of you have asked me, 'how could this have happened?'. I don't know, but it has happened... at a time when we really don't see many miraculous things. Maybe we do. Maybe they're all right there around us everyday, we just don't know where to look. There's no denying that our own little Wilbur... he's part of something that's bigger than all of us. And life on that farm's just a whole lot better with him in it. He really is some pig.
Homer Zuckerman: How could this have happened? A miracle, in a time when we don't see many miraculious things!
