triangle Script


Charlotte: Well, what do you think?

Wilbur: It's a great word. It's just...

Charlotte: Just what?

Wilbur: Is it the right word? Is it true? Because I don't really feel like I deserve any of the things you've written about me.

Charlotte: Then it is the perfect word.

Fern: The web! Hey, Wilbur!

Dad: "Humble." If that's not a prize-winner, I don't know what is.

Mrs. Zuckerman: He's going to win this thing, isn't he? Oh, Homer, I can't go up to that grandstand looking like this.

Mrs. Zuckerman : Homer.

Fern: It's not fair.

Mrs. Zuckerman: Why didn't they tell us the judging was going to be so early?

Mr. Zuckerman: We did our best. I'll get the truck and take him home. I really thought we had a shot.

Mrs. Zuckerman: It's okay. It'll be okay.

Children: I told you. There it is! The web!

Boy: It looks like it's "humble."

Judge: Coming through. Excuse me. Mr. Zuckerman! Could you come with me, please? Oh, and bring the pig, too.
