Owl Quotes:

  • Piglet: [Pooh, Rabbit, Owl, Eeyore, Kanga and Roo are trapped in a hole and Piglet gets a rope - only to cut it up into six pieces] And six! There! Now we can ALL get out!

    Pooh: How very thoughtful you are, Piglet.

    Rabbit: [loses patience] Good grief! Tie them together, Piglet! Can you tie a knot?

    Piglet: I cannot.

    Rabbit: Ah, so you CAN knot.

    Piglet: No. I cannot knot.

    Rabbit: [in disbelief] Not knot?

    Pooh: Who's there?

    Rabbit: Pooh!

    Pooh: Pooh who?

    Rabbit: No! Pooh... eh... Piglet, you'll need more than two knots.

    Piglet: Not possible.

    Eeyore: 'Cause it's all for naught.

  • Owl: Yes, well, the thing to do is as follows: First, issue a reward...

    Pooh: Gesundheit.

    Eeyore: Oh, you did, Owl.

    Owl: No, I didn't! You can't sneeze without knowing it!

    Pooh: Well, you can't know it without something haven't been sneezed.

    Owl: As I was saying, first: issue a reward...

    Pooh: [to Eeyore] He's doing it again. You must be catching a cold.

    Eeyore: [gloomily] I'll probably catch it too.

    Owl: [frustrated] No, no, no! I'm not catching a cold! The word is issue, not ah-choo! And ah-choo isn't even a word! It's just some sort of sneezy sound, like Ah-choo!.

    Pooh: Perhaps you should lie down, Owl.

    Owl: Oh!

    [hits himself on the forehead and falls over backwards]

  • Roo: Tell us more about what Backsons do.

    Tigger: Yes, more about what Backsons do.

    OwlTiggerPoohEeyoreKangaRooPiglet: The Backson! The Backson! The Backson! The Backson! Oh, nooooo!

  • Owl: Artistic talent runs through my family. In fact, it practically stampedes.

  • Rabbit: [believing they've caught The Backson] Now that we have him. Owl, you can go and get Christopher Robin back.

    Owl: No, no I'm far to important to put myself in that predicament. Kanga, off you go.

    Kanga: Oh,no, no, no, no, no.

    Kanga: [holds up Roo] I'm with child.

    Roo: Send the pig!

  • Owl: [describing the Backson] It's a giant creature with a tail / Here, I'll draw Piglet in for scale / Its hide is like a shaggy rug / Its face a surly, ugly mug / With two sharp horns atop its head / Between, a mop of hair that's red! / And in its nose a ring of gold / It smells of monkey's feet and mold / Its toes are black, its fur is blue / I swear that all I tell you is not made up / The Backson!

    All: The Backson!

    Owl: The Backson!

    All: The Backson? Oh, no!

    Pooh: But Owl, what does a Backson do?

    All: Yes, Owl, what does a Backson do?

    Owl: Hmm, what does a Backson do? I'm thinking, I'm thinking, I'm thinking, I'm thinking, and now I will tell you! They sneak into your library and scribble in all your books!

    All: The Backson! The Backson! We don't like the Backson!

    Owl: When decorating your Christmas tree, they tangle up all the hooks!

    All: The Backson! The Backson! We're afraid of the Backson!

    Owl: They spoil your milk, they stop all the clocks / They use their horns to put holes in your socks!

    All: The Backson's the one who's been putting holes in our socks!

  • Roo: I know. Christopher Robin has a jump rope.

    Rabbit: Wait a minute. My gracious, that's it! Piglet, go to Christopher Robin's house.

    Pooh: Oh, I see. Yes, Piglet, go and bring some honey.

    Rabbit: Yes, bring some honey... Doh! The jump rope, Piglet, the jump rope!

    Pooh: With a little honey on the side.

    Piglet: You mean all by myself? Through there?

    Owl: [Flies out of the pit to Piglet] Yes, Piglet. Through a dark wood fraught with peril, on a mission of life or death. It is a task of great complexity, but I have full confidence that you shall return victorious and rescue us from the abyss. Go forth, Piglet, and we shall await your return, for weeks if necessary.

    [Flies back down, as everyone looks astonished]

    Rabbit: Owl!

    Owl: What?

    Rabbit: I can't believe... how wonderful that speech was!

    Pooh: I can't, either.

    Eeyore: Moved me to tears.

  • Owl: The word is "issue," not "achoo," and "achoo" isn't even a word. It's just a sort of sneezy sound like achoo!

  • Owl: [looking through his books, trying to find one that says 'Backson'] Bathwater, Biscuit, Baby, Barnacle, Beluga, wait a minute, why is 'Biscuit' ahead of 'Baby' and 'Barnacle'? That doesn't make sense. Oh, it's such a mess in here.

  • Princess Aurora: Oh, dear. Why do they still treat me like a child?

    Owl: Who?

    Princess Aurora: Aunt Flora, and Fauna, and Merryweather. They never want me to meet anyone.


    Princess Aurora: But you know something? I fooled them. I *have* met someone.

    Owl: Who? Who?

    Princess Aurora: Oh, a prince.

    [Birds chirp]

    Princess Aurora: Well, he's tall and handsome, and... and so romantic.

    [Birds chirp]

    Princess Aurora: Oh, we walk together, and talk together, and just before we say goodbye, he takes me in his arms, and then... I wake up.

    [all the animals sigh]

    Princess Aurora: Yes, it's only in my dreams. But they say if you dream a thing more than once, it's sure to come true, and I've seen him so many times.

    Gopher: Good idea! We'll dynamite. Save time.

    Owl: Eh, what's the charge?

    Gopher: The charge? Oh, about seven sticks of dynamite.

    Owl: Oh, no, no, no, the cost! The charge in money.

    Gopher: Nope, no charge account. I work strictly cash.

    Owl: Obviously, but, I should think...

    Gopher: Well, I can't stand around lollygagging all day. I got a tight schedule.

    Gopher: [falls down a hole] Aaaaaaaahh.

    Gopher: If you think it over, let me know. You got my card, I'm not in the book, you know.

    Owl: Oh. Dash it all, he's gone.

    Winnie the Pooh: After all, he's not in the book, you know.

    Owl: Oh.

  • Eeyore: W-O-L, that spells owl.

    Owl: Bless my soul, so it does.

  • Gopher: First thing to be done is, uh, get rid of that bear; he's jamming up the whole project.

    Owl: Dash it all, he *is* the project!

  • Owl: This is just a mild spring zephyr compared to the big wind of '67. Or was it, uh, '76? Oh, well, no matter. Oh, I remember the big blow well.

    Piglet: I'll remember this one, too.

    Owl: It was the year my Aunt Clara went to visit her cousin. Now, her cousin was not only gifted on the glockenspiel, but being a screech owl, also sang soprano in the London Opera.

    Winnie the Pooh: [as Piglet shoves a honey pot into his face; muffled] Thank you, Piglet.

    Owl: You see, her constant praticing so unnerved my aunt that she laid a seagull egg by mistake. Oooooohhhhhh!

  • Owl: [Reciting the letter] Dear Tigger, just a note to say:...

    Kanga: ...dress warmly...

    Winnie The Pooh: ...eat well...

    Everyone: Your family.

  • Owl: [about Bambi and Faline] Ugh. Twitterpated.

    Flower: What's "twitterpated"?

    Owl: Oh, I'll, uh, tell you when you're older.

  • The Great Prince: Friend Owl.

    Owl: Excuse me, sir, I hope I'm not intruding but... well... I just had to come.

    [Looks at Bambi]

    Owl: Poor little fella. So young to be without his mother. Well, if I can be of any help...

    [starts to fly away]

  • The Great Prince: Wait. I could use your help - find me a suitable doe to raise Bambi.

    Owl: Oh, yes, of course.


    Owl: Eh, food's so scarce, does can barely feed themselves. Uh, perhaps you could...?

  • The Great Prince: Me? You know as well as I do - a Prince looks after the herd, does care for the young.

    Owl: But you are his father, and circumstances being what they are...

  • The Great Prince: [looks up, sighs] Until Spring.

    Owl: Oh, excellent. After all: who better to raise the Young Prince than the Great Prince himself!

    [flies away]

  • Pig: [Various animals are pouring into John's apartment] ... Good evening, Doctor.

    Dr. John Dolittle: ...No. You're gonna have to take your fat ass back out.

    Penguin: Oh, my God. What a zoo.

    Pig: Hmm, obviously not a kosher establishment.

    Rooster: Where are the chicks? Ooh! I'm cool.

    Pig: [belches] ... Very well-appointed sty.

    Dr. John Dolittle: What's going on? What is all this?

    Owl: I don't know. You know, tell a friend. Ha ha.

    Lucky: Looks like they need to talk to a doctor, Doc.

    Sheep: Our butts hurt.

    Dr. John Dolittle: Okay. Let's do this. And watch your droppings.

    Rodney: Tonight, this is the house of love! East Coast! West Coast! Let's unite! Is Brooklyn in the house...?

  • [last lines]

    Lucky: I want my own room, with a TV. Basic cable will be fine.

    Rat #1: I hate stories with happy endings.

    Owl: Yoo-hoo.

    Rat #1: What did you say?

    Rat #2: I didn't say nothing.

    Rat #1: Then who?

    Owl: [squawks and takes flight]

    Rat #1: Ahhh! Run! Run for your lives! Oh my God! Let's go, buddy.

    Rat #2: I don't want to die. I'm too young to die! Hang a left! No, hang a right! Look out for the traffic! Oh, legs, do your thing. Get out of my way!

    Rat #1: This circle of life really stinks!
