Templeton: Okay. Where’s the filth?
Charlotte: Have you heard that good things come to those who wait?
Templeton: No. Good things come to those who find it and shove it in their mouth.
Charlotte: Oh, my. Is that what we're up against?
Charlotte: Excuse me. What is your name? When someone wants to get your attention, what is it they call out?
Charlotte: 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.
Uncle: Of course. What did you think I was – a spring chicken?
Charlotte: Huge and humorous. Aren't we talented!
Uncle: Spring chicken.
Wilbur: Charlotte, who are you talking to?
Charlotte: The pig next door.
Wilbur: Oh. Should I be worried?
Charlotte: Of course not. What good would that do?
Templeton: 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.
Charlotte: Please. That pig is not nearly as handsome as Wilbur, or as harmoniously proportioned, and not nearly as clean.
Templeton: There's a real tiebreaker.
Charlotte: 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.
Wilbur: I'm not tired, Charlotte.
Charlotte: Okay. Well, could you excuse me for just a minute, please?
Charlotte: 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.
Templeton: How about "pushy" and "demanding"?
Charlotte: Templeton, please! This is our last chance to save Wilbur's life.
Templeton: You do realize I'm just here for the food, right?
Charlotte: Of course.
