Horse: Look, I don't come across many words in the field, other than "Hyah!" or "Giddy up!" But that rat's always dragging in trash with writing on it.
Charlotte: I agree. It's about time Templeton started pulling his weight around here instead of just eating it. I bet he could bring us some choice words.
Templeton: I've got a choice word for you. A little word called, "Uh-uh."
Charlotte: Well, that's two words.
Templeton: And here's a few more. Negative. No way. Nothing doing. I ain't breaking my back to try and save "some pig," no matter how "terrific" you think the little lunch meat is.
Charlotte: You'll sing a different tune when he's gone and nobody brings around those scrumptious buckets of slop.
Sheep: And three, two... Cue the rat!
Templeton: Let's get one thing straight. I don't care about the pig. What I care about is the slop.
Charlotte: Of course.
Templeton: And since I'll be at the dump anyway, and it won't take any extra effort, maybe, maybe I'll pick something up.
Charlotte: You're very kind.
Templeton: Don't go spreading it around. What? What do you want?
Wilbur: You'll need your strength.
Charlotte: "Radiant." This might just work.
Templeton: Might? Oh, for the love of Lucy!
Wilbur: Here it comes. It did this yesterday. Look that way, everyone! Right towards that cloud!
Cow: Good gracious. Has it always done that?
Cow: No, it can't have.
Sheep: Brilliant! Absolutely brilliant!
Charlotte: Oh, yes. This word will work quite nicely.
Templeton: Then my work is done. And now for the fruits of my labor. And the vegetables! And the gravy!
