Quotes from the Movie Babe

This is a tale about an unprejudiced heart, and how it changed our valley forever. There was a time not so long ago when pigs were afforded no respect, except by other pigs. They lived their whole lives in a cruel and sunless world. In those days pigs believed that the sooner they grew large and fat, the sooner they'd be taken to Pig Paradise, a place so wonderful that no pig had ever thought to come back.

Narrator

There are many perfectly nice cats in the world, but every barrel has its bad apples, and it is well to heed the old adage, "Beware the bad cat bearing a grudge."

Narrator

I suppose the life of an anorexic duck doesn't amount to much in the broad scheme of things.

I suppose the life of an anorexic duck doesn't amount to much in the broad scheme of things, but, pig, I'm all I've got!

Ferdinand the duck

Christmas. Christmas dinner, yeah. Dinner means death. Death means carnage! [really freaking out] Christmas means carnage! [fly away] Christmas means carnage!

Ferdinand the duck

Oh, do forgive me for scratching you, dear. I got a bit carried away. [chuckles] It's a cat thing.

Duchess the Cat

Oh! I haven't upset you, have I?

Duchess the Cat

Look, there's something you should know.

Ferdinand

Humans eat ducks!

Ferdinand

Huh? I beg your pardon?

Babe

Ah, most ducks would like to forget it, but the fact is that humans like to eat plump, attractive ducks.

Ferdinand

Ohhh, I don't think so. Not the Boss, not the Boss's wife.

Babe

Oh, come on. Humans don't eat cats - why?

Ferdinand

Well, they're...

Babe

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.

Ferdinand

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!

Ferdinand

Until your find his feet.

Rex

But, Mom, he'll wet the bed!

Puppy

Nonsense! If you do want to do anythin', you'll go outside won't 'ya? Good boy!

Fly

Feeling good about tomorrow, are you?

Duchess
