Quotes from the Movie Babe

Mm-hmm. It should be all right, I think.

Babe

You know, I probably shouldn't say this, but I'm not sure if you realize how much the other animals are laughing at you.

Duchess

Why would they do that?

Babe

Well, they say you've forgotten that you're a pig! Isn't that silly? They say you don't even know what pigs are for.

Duchess

What do you mean?

Babe

You know, why pigs are here.

Duchess

Why are any of us here?

Babe

Well, the cows are here to be milked. The dogs are here to help the Boss's husband with the sheep. I am here to be beautiful and affectionate to the Boss.

Duchess

The fact is that pigs don't have a purpose. Just like ducks don't have a purpose.

Duchess

Alright, for your 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 animals who don't 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.

Duchess

They eat ... pigs?

Babe

Pork they call it. Or bacon. They only call them pigs when they're alive.

Duchess

But I'm a sheep pig.

Babe

Oh, the Boss's husband is 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?

Duchess

And though every single human in the stands or in the commentary boxes was at a complete loss for words, the man who in his life had uttered fewer words than any of them knew exactly what to say.

Narrator

That'll do, pig. That'll do.

Farmer Hoggett

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.

Rex

Rex, he's just a little pig.

Fly

All the greater the insult!

Rex

Fly decided to speak very slowly. For it was a cold fact of nature that sheep were stupid and no one would ever persuade her otherwise.

Narrator

Please. Please. Would you be ... so kind as to tell me what happened?

Fly

Please. Tell me what happened this morning.

Fly

The sheep decided to speak very slowly. For it was a cold fact of nature that wolves were ignorant and nothing would convince them otherwise.

Narrator

Babe came! He saved us! The wolves killed Maa! But Babe drove the wolves away!
