  • Okay. Where’s the filth?
  • Have you heard that (good) things come to those who wait?
  • No. (Good) things come to those who find it and shove it in their mouth.
  • Oh, my. Is that what we're up against?
  • Excuse me. What is your name? When someone wants to get your attention, what is it they call out?
  • Uncle.
  • Tell me, Uncle, what is the date of your birth? Your birthday? For heaven's sake, all I want to know is if you're a spring pig.
  • Of course. What did you think I was – a spring chicken?
  • Huge and humorous. Aren't we (talented) .

  • The pig next door.
  • Oh. Should I be worried?
  • Of course not. What (good) would that do?
  • Whoa! Have you seen the beast next door? I think his mama was part hippo. If I had to name five of (the fattest) pigs I've ever seen, he'd be three of them. He's a shoo-in.
  • Please. That pig is not nearly (as handsome as) Wilbur, or as harmoniously proportioned, and not nearly (as clean) .
  • There's a real tiebreaker.
  • We just have to prove that (the finest) pig is not necessarily (the fattest) . And you can do your part, Wilbur, by getting some rest.
  • I'm not (tired) , Charlotte.
  • Okay. Well, could you excuse me for just a minute, please?
  • All right, Templeton, you're right. That pig over there is a shoo-in. So, I need words that are even (better) than that pig is fat. Special words, and lots of them.
  • How about "pushy" and "demanding"?
  • Templeton, please! This is our last chance to save Wilbur's life.
  • You do realize I'm just here for the food, right?
