Miriam Margolyes as Fly

  • (Miriam Margolyes) "Rex? I know it was hard for you today, watching all that happening. But surely it's not worth all this misery. Please, dear. Not on such a beautiful night."
  • (Hugo Weaving) "You -- put these ideas into his head, Two-faced traitorous WRETCH."
  • (Puppy) "It does look stupid, Mom."
  • (Miriam Margolyes) "Not as stupid as sheep, mind you, But pigs are definitely stupid."
  • (Christine Cavanaugh) "Excuse me -- no, we're not."
  • (Narrator) "Fly decided to speak very slowly, for it was a cold fact of nature that sheep were stupid, and there was nothing that could convince her otherwise."
  • (Miriam Margolyes) "Please, someone tell me -- what happened this morning."
  • (Narrator) "The sheep decided to speak very slowly, for it was a cold fact of nature that wolves were ignorant, and there was nothing that could convince them otherwise."
  • (Sheep) "Babe came. He saved us."
  • (Miriam Margolyes) "All right; how did you do it?"
  • (Christine Cavanaugh) "I asked them and they did it. I just asked them nicely."
  • (Miriam Margolyes) "We don't ask sheep, dear; we tell them what to do."
  • (Christine Cavanaugh) "But I did, Mum. They were really friendly."

Christine Cavanaugh as Babe

  • (Christine Cavanaugh) "Move along there, ya -- ya -- big buttheads."
  • (Christine Cavanaugh) "Was Rex a champion?"
  • (Miriam Margolyes) "He had the makings of the greatest champion there ever was. But it wasn't to be."
  • (Christine Cavanaugh) "What happened?"
  • (Miriam Margolyes) "A while back, when Rex was in his prime, the winter rains brought a great flood to the valley. Rex and the Boss got most of the flock onto the high ground. Then Rex went back to look for the strays. He found them. They'd been stranded by the rising water. He tried to herd them across to safety, but they wouldn't budge. Too scared and too stupid to save their own skins. It was freezing cold and the water kept rising. Rex stayed with them right through the night. By morning, the sheep were drowned. And when they found Rex, he was barely alive."
  • (Christine Cavanaugh) "Oh, Mum."
  • (Miriam Margolyes) "Two weeks' rest in front of the fire saw him back on his feet, but his hearing was never the same again. He'd never want anyone to know, but -- he's almost totally deaf."
  • (Christine Cavanaugh) "Is that why he's so; you know; angry?"
  • (Miriam Margolyes) "That's not the half of it. All this was barely a month before the Grand National Challenge. He tried his best, but he couldn't hear the Boss's calls, and it slowed him up. The cold truth is that, but for the stupidity of sheep, Rex would've been the champion of champions."
  • (Christine Cavanaugh) "Ferdinand."

  • (Danny Mann) "I can't take it anymore."
  • (Charles Bartlett) "Really."
  • (Danny Mann) "The fear's too much for a duck. It; it eats away at the soul. There must be kinder dispositions in far-off gentler lands."
  • (Charles Bartlett) "The only way you'll find happiness is to accept that the way things are is the way things are."
  • (Danny Mann) "'The way things are' stinks. I'm not gonna be a goner, I'm gone. I wish all of you the best of luck."
  • (Christine Cavanaugh) "This is ridiculous, Mum."
  • (Miriam Margolyes) "Nonsense. It's only your first try. But you're treating them like equals. They're sheep; they're inferior."
  • (Christine Cavanaugh) "Oh, no, they're not."
  • (Miriam Margolyes) "Of course they are. We are their masters, Babe. Let them doubt it for a second and they'll walk all over you."
  • (Hugo Weaving) "Fly. Get the pig out of there."
  • (Miriam Margolyes) "Make them feel inferior; abuse them, insult them."
  • (Hugo Weaving) "Fly."
  • (Christine Cavanaugh) "They'll laugh at me."

  • (Hugo Weaving) "Enough."
  • (Miriam Margolyes) "Go on, go."
  • (Christine Cavanaugh) "Baa-ram-ewe. Baa-ram-ewe. To your breed, your fleece, your clan be true. Sheep be true. Baa-ram-ewe."

  • (Christine Cavanaugh) "Oh, well, but --"
  • (Cat) "Feeling good about tomorrow, are you?"
  • (Christine Cavanaugh) "Mm-hmm, it should be all right, I think."
  • (Cat) "You know, I probably shouldn't say this, but I'm not sure if you realise how much the other animals are laughing at you for this sheepdog business."
  • (Christine Cavanaugh) "Why would they do that?"
  • (Cat) "Well, they say that you've forgotten that you're a pig. Isn't that silly? And they even said that you don't know what pigs are for."
  • (Christine Cavanaugh) "What do you mean, 'what pigs are for'?"
  • (Cat) "You know, why pigs are here."
  • (Christine Cavanaugh) "Why are any of us here?"
  • (Cat) "Well, the cow's here to be milked, the dogs are here to help the Boss's husband with the sheep, and I'm here to be beautiful and affectionate to the Boss."
  • (Christine Cavanaugh) "Yes?"
  • (Cat) "The fact is that pigs don't have a purpose. Just like, ducks don't have a purpose."
  • (Christine Cavanaugh) "Uh, I; I don't, uh --"
  • (Cat) "All right, for your own sake, I'll be blunt. Why do the Bosses keep ducks? To eat them. So why do the Bosses keep a pig? The fact is that animals that don't seem to have a purpose really do have a purpose. The Bosses have to eat. It's probably the most noble purpose of all, when you come to think about it."
  • (Christine Cavanaugh) "They -- eat pigs?"
  • (Cat) "Pork, they call it. Or bacon. They only call them pigs when they're alive."
  • (Christine Cavanaugh) "But, uh, I'm a sheep pig."
  • (Cat) "The Boss's husband's just playing a little game with you. Believe me, sooner or later, every pig gets eaten. That's the way the world works. Oh -- I haven't upset you, have I?"
  • (Christine Cavanaugh) "I'm sorry I bit you. Are you all right?"
  • (Sheep) "Well, I wouldn't call that a bite myself. You got teeth in that floppy mouth of yours or just gums?"
  • (Miriam Flynn) "You see, ladies? A heart of gold."

Hugo Weaving as Rex

  • (Hugo Weaving) "You and I are descended from the great sheepdogs. We carry the bloodline of the ancient Bahou. We stand for something. And today I watched in shame as all that was betrayed."
  • (Miriam Margolyes) "Rex, dear. He's just a little pig."
  • (Hugo Weaving) "All the greater the insult."

Danny Mann as Ferdinand

  • (Danny Mann) "I suppose the life of an anorexic duck doesn't amount to much in the broad scheme of things."
  • (Danny Mann) "Look, there's something you should know."
  • (Christine Cavanaugh) "Yes?"
  • (Danny Mann) "Humans eat ducks."
  • (Christine Cavanaugh) "I beg your pardon?"
  • (Danny Mann) "Ah, most ducks prefer to forget it, but the fact is that humans like to eat plump, attractive ducks."
  • (Christine Cavanaugh) "Ohhh, I don't think so. Not the Boss, not the Boss's wife."
  • (Danny Mann) "Oh, come on. Humans don't eat cats; why?"
  • (Christine Cavanaugh) "Well, they're --"
  • (Danny Mann) "They're indispensable: they catch mice. Humans don't eat roosters; why? They make eggs with the hens and wake everyone up in the morning."
  • (Christine Cavanaugh) "Right."
  • (Danny Mann) "I tried it with the hens: it didn't work. So I turned to crowing, and lo. I discover my gift. But no sooner do I become indispensable than they bring in a machine to do the job. Ohhhh-oh-oh. the treachery of it; a mechanical rooster."

Miriam Flynn as Maa

  • (Miriam Flynn) "Darn silly carry-on, if you ask me."

  • (Evelyn Krape) "That's right, wolf must avoid biting us sheep at all costs."
  • (Hugo Weaving) "All right. I'll try that too. I'll try."
  • (Evelyn Krape) "But the most important of all, you must promise never ever to let this password we be about to give to be used against any sheep anywhere."
