triangle Script




What do you mean you are not going to the fair? I am going to get a prize. Don't you want to be there?

Of course I do, Wilbur, very much. I'm just not up to traveling at the moment.

Why not?

Because I'm expecting.

Expecting what?

"Expecting" means... I'm expecting you to do fine without me. You're getting to be a big pig, and you will do just great on your own.

Okay. I will miss you.


I've got to say he really is some pig.

That's my buttermilk working.

You sure you want to go through with this, Homer? If you lose, you're out your entry fee. He could win, though. Stranger things have been happening around here. If he doesn't win, though?

Well, the way I figure it, even if he does lose, I can make it all back on the bacon alone.

Wilbur! Wilbur!

Do something, Homer.

What happened?

I don't know. He just fainted.

It's all right, hon.

Lurvy, get some water!

It's okay, Wilbur.

Charlotte, are you feeling-eeling okay?

Why is it so hard for that farmer to see what is right in front of his face? Look what Wilbur has done for this farm. Isn't that better than ham? Well, there's only one thing to do, and I have to be there to do it.

Charlotte, you have your babies to think about now.

Charlotte: Yes, I know. But I made a promise to my friend. A big blue ribbon ought to finally get the point through that farmer's head.

Zuckerman: Easy, Lurvy. Easy.

Lurvy: Coming through! Coming through! Here we go!

Zuckerman: There we go.

Wife: He's up.

Dad: Okay, let's see if he'll get in the crate.

Templeton: Buttermilk.

Charlotte: Templeton? I need you to go with me. We'll have to find another word, a really good one.

Templeton: Sorry, lady. Comes a time when the rat's got to ask himself, "What's in it for the rat?"

Cow: He's right. We've been to the fair.

Cow: We have?

Cow: Remember? All that garbage there?

Cow: Oh, yeah! It's littered with hunks of chewed-on funnel cakes...

Templeton: How's that?

Cow: And dribs of ice cream going sour in the sun. And spitty little cotton candy bits ground into the mud.

Cow: Popcorn, moldy cheese, half-eaten sandwiches and sticky-icky-icky candy apples.

Cow: I've never seen so much disgusting trash!

Cow: More food than you'll see in a lifetime!
