Pamelyn Ferdin as Fern Arable

  • (Narrator) "Wilbur was what the farmers call a "spring pig", which means he was born in springtime. By the time he was six weeks old, he'd grown so, you'd never have known he started life as a runt. Wilbur had gotten so big, in fact, that John Arable decided that it was time he stopped being a pet, and start being a pig."
  • (Pamelyn Ferdin) "He's got to go, Fern."
  • (Pamelyn Ferdin) "Papa, no."
  • (Pamelyn Ferdin) "You've had your fun raising a baby pig, but Wilbur's got to be sold. He's not a baby anymore and his brothers and sisters are already sold."
  • (Pamelyn Ferdin) "Oh Papa."
  • (Pamelyn Ferdin) "Sheep do not play with pigs."
  • (Henry Gibson) "Why not?"
  • (Pamelyn Ferdin) "Oh, it's a matter of status. Sheep, for instance, are highly regarded by Zuckerman, because we furnish him with good quality wool. With pigs, on the other hand, it's just a matter of time."
  • (Henry Gibson) "Time to what?"
  • (Pamelyn Ferdin) "Till you're fat enough to kill."
  • (Henry Gibson) "What did you say?"
  • (Pamelyn Ferdin) "Oh, everybody knows it. In the fall, you'll be turned into smoked bacon and ham. Just as soon as cold weather sets in, they'll kill you."
  • (Pamelyn Ferdin) "Here are the eggs, Mama."
  • (Martha Scott) "Thank you, Fern."
  • (Pamelyn Ferdin) "What's Papa doing with that axe?"
  • (Martha Scott) "Some pigs were born last night."
  • (Pamelyn Ferdin) "What does he need an axe for?"
  • (Martha Scott) "One of the pigs was a runt, so your father has to do away with it."
  • (Pamelyn Ferdin) "Do away with it? You, you mean, kill it?"
  • (Martha Scott) "Well, yes."
  • (Pamelyn Ferdin) "Just because it's smaller than the others?"
  • (Martha Scott) "Don't yell, Fern. The pig'll probably die, anyway."
  • (Pamelyn Ferdin) "Oh Wilbur."
  • (Narrator) "The next day was the saddest one Fern and Wilbur had ever known, for the young pig was taken from his home under the apple tree, and sold down the road to Fern's uncle, Homer Zuckerman."
  • (Pamelyn Ferdin) "Goodbye, Wilbur -- goodbye Wilbur -- goodbye --"
  • (Pamelyn Ferdin) "Ooh. What did you DO, Avery?"
  • (Danny Bonaduce) "Good night. What a STINK."
  • (Templeton) "Lucky for you I saved that egg, Charlotte."
  • (Debbie Reynolds) "Er, yes -- and I'm grateful to you, Templeton --"
  • (Narrator) "This old world is filled with wonders, but to me there is no place more wonderful than a farm in springtime, when the sun is just lifting from the sky line. The air is so sweet and everywhere you look, little miracles are happening. Buds swell into blossoms, eggs hatch, young are born."
  • (Narrator) "Everything's off to a fresh start, and life is good and busy and brand new."
  • (Narrator) "Around the barnyard, big families are a blessing. The more the merrier."
  • (Narrator) "Root and grunt, push and shove, room for everyone. Well, everybody except; the runt."
  • (Narrator) "John Arable had been up since daybreak. He'd seen the size of the pig, but he wasn't looking forward to what had to be done."
  • (Pamelyn Ferdin) "Good morning, Papa."
  • (Pamelyn Ferdin) "Morning, Fern."

Henry Gibson as Wilbur

  • (Henry Gibson) "Will you play with me?"
  • (Goose) "I'm no flibberty-ibberty-gibbit. I'm staying here and hatching my goslings."
  • (Henry Gibson) "I think you're beautiful."
  • (Debbie Reynolds) "Well, I am pretty. Nearly all spiders are good looking. I'm not as flashy as some, but I'll do."
  • (Henry Gibson) "Isn't it great, that I articulate? / Isn't it grand? That you can understand / I don't honk, I don't eep, I don't even squeak or squawk / When I wanna say a-something, I open up and talk, I can talk, I can talk, talk, talk, I can --"
  • (Pamelyn Ferdin) "Why don't you keep it down?"
  • (Henry Gibson) "I can talk."
  • (Henry Gibson) "Congratulations. How many are there?"
  • (Goose) "There are seven."
  • (Debbie Reynolds) "Seven is a lucky number."
  • (Goose) "Luck has nothing to do with it. It was good management and hard work."
  • (Templeton) "Why didn't, uh, this one hatch?"
  • (Goose) "It's a dud, I guess."
  • (Templeton) "What are you going to do with it?"
  • (Goose) "You can have it. Roll it away and add it to that nasty collection of yours. Be careful; a rotten egg can be a regular stink bomb."
  • (Templeton) "I know what I'm doing. I handle stuff like this all the time."
  • (Henry Gibson) "I didn't know you could lay eggs."
  • (Debbie Reynolds) "Oh yes. I'm versatile."
  • (Henry Gibson) "Does versatile mean "full of eggs"?"
  • (Debbie Reynolds) "Certainly not. Versatile means I can turn with ease from one thing to another."
  • (Goose) "You have a good home home here. Why aren't you happy happy happy?"
  • (Henry Gibson) "I miss Fern."
  • (Henry Gibson) "Are you writers?"
  • (Unnamed) "No, but we will be when we grow up."

  • (Unnamed) "Ooh, that would take us a lifetime."
  • (Henry Gibson) "A lifetime. That's what we have."

William B. White as Henry Fussy

  • (Danny Bonaduce) "Probably having such a good time he hates to go home."
  • (Herb Vigran) "He's not sick, is he?"
  • (Bob Holt) "Probably just homesick. I guess we all are."
  • (William B. White) "When I heard Zuckerman's famous pig was here, I came looking for you."
  • (Pamelyn Ferdin) "Well, I'm not Zuckerman's famous pig."

Bob Holt as Homer Zuckerman

  • (Bob Holt) "Lurvy?"
  • (Herb Vigran) "Yes, sir?"
  • (Bob Holt) "Make a large crate, and paint it green with gold letters."
  • (Herb Vigran) "Uh, what should the letters say?"
  • (Bob Holt) "They should say uh, "Zuckerman's Famous Pig"."
  • (Herb Vigran) "Yes, sir."
  • (Bob Holt) "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."

  • (Pamelyn Ferdin) "That's some pig."
  • (Danny Bonaduce) "He's terrific."
