Fern: I heard them. I heard them talking about the smokehouse!
Dad: He's not your pig anymore.
Fern: Well, I wouldn't have sold him in the first place if I knew this is what they were gonna do to him.
Dad: That's what happens to a pig on a farm, Fern. You know that.
Fern: I'll see about that.
Dad: I've got maybe two, three years before she can out-argue me. Then I'm doomed.
Teacher: And members of our own 4-H Club will have the opportunity to enter livestock and poultry in the competition. So, in addition to the rides and games, make sure you show them your support as well. Any questions? Rita.
Student: Miss Lewis, can I bring my chickens?
Teacher: Your chickens, I'm sure. Pigs, chickens, horses and cows. You certainly can, and I hope you win first prize.
Charlotte: Al right now – R.
Zuckerman: Welcome to Zuckerman's! Thank you all for coming. Well, the web says it better than I ever could. That is some terrific, radiant pig! And for that reason, I've decided to enter Wilbur into the county fair.
Wilbur: Did you hear what they said, Charlotte? I'm going to the fair!
Gander: Going to the fair!
Gussy: Wilbur might just see Christmas after all.
Wilbur: Is it good? Did we do it?
Charlotte: Yes, Wilbur. It's very good. Now, smile.
Sister: The fair, Homer? What's gotten into you?
Zuckerman: I don't know, Sis. It just come to me.
Wife: He's a runt, Homer. He doesn't stand a chance.
Sheep: Well done! Never had a doubt!
Horse: That spider did a heck of a job. She's a hard worker.
Wilbur: Thank you, Charlotte. You should take a little bow.
Charlotte: And have my beauty steal the show? Now, go on and show them what a radiant pig can do.
