Sherbil Quotes in Watership Down (1978)
Bigwig: Aren't you going to silflay?
Blackavar: I don't silflay at this time, sir.
Sherbil: Tell him why you're here, Blackavar.
Blackavar: [Mumbles] I've come here for the mark...
[Chervil swipes at him to make him speak up, and he does]
Blackavar: I... I... I've come here for the mark to see me. I... I've been punished for trying to leave the warren.
Blackavar: The council were merciful...
[Chervil threatens him again, and Blackavar cowers]
Blackavar: The council were merciful.
Sherbil: He keeps trying to run away. Captain Campion caught him this time. The council ripped his ears and says he has to show himself every morning early silflay as an example to the others. If you ask me, he won't last much longer. He'll meet a blacker rabbit than himself one of these nights.-- Sherbil
