Winnie the Pooh (2011)
Owl: Yes, well, the thing to do is as follows: First, issue a reward...
Pooh: Gesundheit.
Owl: I beg your pardon?
Pooh: Well, you sneezed just as you were going to tell me what the first thing to do was.
Owl: I didn't sneeze.
Eeyore: Oh, you did, Owl.
Owl: No, I didn't! You can't sneeze without knowing it!
Pooh: Well, you can't know it without something haven't been sneezed.
Owl: As I was saying, first: issue a reward...
Pooh: [to Eeyore] He's doing it again. You must be catching a cold.
Eeyore: [gloomily] I'll probably catch it too.
Owl: [frustrated] No, no, no! I'm not catching a cold! The word is issue, not ah-choo! And ah-choo isn't even a word! It's just some sort of sneezy sound, like Ah-choo!.
Pooh: Perhaps you should lie down, Owl.
Owl: Oh!
[hits himself on the forehead and falls over backwards]

Piglet: [Pooh, Rabbit, Owl, Eeyore, Kanga and Roo are trapped in a hole and Piglet gets a rope - only to cut it up into six pieces] And six! There! Now we can ALL get out!
Pooh: How very thoughtful you are, Piglet.
Rabbit: [loses patience] Good grief! Tie them together, Piglet! Can you tie a knot?
Piglet: I cannot.
Rabbit: Ah, so you CAN knot.
Piglet: No. I cannot knot.
Rabbit: [in disbelief] Not knot?
Pooh: Who's there?
Rabbit: Pooh!
Pooh: Pooh who?
Rabbit: No! Pooh... eh... Piglet, you'll need more than two knots.
Piglet: Not possible.
Owl: Ah, so it IS possible to knot those pieces.
Piglet: Not these pieces!
Pooh: Yes. Knot those pieces.
Piglet: Why not?
Eeyore: 'Cause it's all for naught.

Rabbit: [believing they've caught The Backson] Now that we have him. Owl, you can go and get Christopher Robin back.
Owl: No, no I'm far to important to put myself in that predicament. Kanga, off you go.
Kanga: Oh,no, no, no, no, no.
Kanga: [holds up Roo] I'm with child.
Roo: Send the pig!

Owl: Artistic talent runs through my family. In fact, it practically stampedes.

Owl: [describing the Backson] It's a giant creature with a tail / Here, I'll draw Piglet in for scale / Its hide is like a shaggy rug / Its face a surly, ugly mug / With two sharp horns atop its head / Between, a mop of hair that's red! / And in its nose a ring of gold / It smells of monkey's feet and mold / Its toes are black, its fur is blue / I swear that all I tell you is not made up / The Backson!
All: The Backson!
Owl: The Backson!
All: The Backson? Oh, no!
Pooh: But Owl, what does a Backson do?
All: Yes, Owl, what does a Backson do?
Owl: Hmm, what does a Backson do? I'm thinking, I'm thinking, I'm thinking, I'm thinking, and now I will tell you! They sneak into your library and scribble in all your books!
All: The Backson! The Backson! We don't like the Backson!
Owl: When decorating your Christmas tree, they tangle up all the hooks!
All: The Backson! The Backson! We're afraid of the Backson!
Owl: They spoil your milk, they stop all the clocks / They use their horns to put holes in your socks!
All: The Backson's the one who's been putting holes in our socks!

Roo: Tell us more about what Backsons do.
Tigger: Yes, more about what Backsons do.
Owl: More about what Backsons do? Why don't we hear some thoughts from you?
Tigger: Maybe they make you sleep too late.
Owl: Yes, yes! That's good, that's great!
Eeyore: I bet they're the reason my tail is gone.
Owl: You're on a roll. Go on, go on!
Rabbit: They muddy up your tidy house.
Piglet: Tney make you feel as small as a mouse.
Roo: They break your crayons.
Rabbit: They spill your tea!
Kanga: They wake up babies at one and three.
Eeyore: They made me catch the cold I caught.
Pooh: They made me lose my train of thought.
Tigger: They swipe your stripes.
Piglet: They clog your pipes.
Rabbit: They dig up your garden.
Eeyore: They won't beg your pardon.
Pooh: They eat your snacks.
Piglet: They won't relax!
Rabbit: They chip your tooth!
Kanga: They steal your youth!
Owl: And now you know the horrible truth!
Owl, Tigger, Pooh, Eeyore, Kanga, Roo, Piglet: The Backson! The Backson! The Backson! The Backson! Oh, nooooo!

Roo: I know. Christopher Robin has a jump rope.
Rabbit: Wait a minute. My gracious, that's it! Piglet, go to Christopher Robin's house.
Pooh: Oh, I see. Yes, Piglet, go and bring some honey.
Rabbit: Yes, bring some honey... Doh! The jump rope, Piglet, the jump rope!
Pooh: With a little honey on the side.
Piglet: You mean all by myself? Through there?
Owl: [Flies out of the pit to Piglet] Yes, Piglet. Through a dark wood fraught with peril, on a mission of life or death. It is a task of great complexity, but I have full confidence that you shall return victorious and rescue us from the abyss. Go forth, Piglet, and we shall await your return, for weeks if necessary.
[Flies back down, as everyone looks astonished]
Rabbit: Owl!
Owl: What?
Rabbit: I can't believe... how wonderful that speech was!
Pooh: I can't, either.
Eeyore: Moved me to tears.

Owl: The word is "issue," not "achoo," and "achoo" isn't even a word. It's just a sort of sneezy sound like achoo!


Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day (1968)
Owl: This is just a mild spring zephyr compared to the big wind of '67. Or was it, uh, '76? Oh, well, no matter. Oh, I remember the big blow well.
Piglet: I'll remember this one, too.
Owl: It was the year my Aunt Clara went to visit her cousin. Now, her cousin was not only gifted on the glockenspiel, but being a screech owl, also sang soprano in the London Opera.
Winnie the Pooh: [muffled, with a honey pot in his face] Thank you, Piglet.
Owl: You see, her constant practicing so unnerved my aunt, that she laid a seagull egg by mistake. Whoooooooo!
[his dishes crash on him as his house crashes to earth]

Eeyore: W-O-L, that spells owl.
Owl: Bless my soul, so it does.

Piglet: Oh Owl, I don't mean to c-c-complain, but I'm afraid, I'm scared.
Owl: Now, now, Piglet, Chin up and all that sort of thing. A rescue's being thought of. Be brrrave, little Piglet!
Piglet: It's awfully hard to be b-b-b-b-brave when you're such a small animal.
Owl: Then to divert your small mind from your unfortunate predicament, I shall tell you an amusing anectdote.
[Piglet sees a waterfall they're about to approach as Owl clears his throat]
Owl: It concerns a distant cousin of mine who became so frightened during a flood that he...
Piglet: I beg your pardon, Owl, but I th-th-th-think we coming to a fatterfall... a flutterfall... a very big *waterfall*!
Owl: Please, no interruptions.

Owl: [after Owl's tree crashed] Well, I say now... Someone has... Pooh! Did you do that?
Winnie the Pooh: I don't think so.

Owl: Good! That gives me time to talk about my Uncle Clyde, a very independent barn owl who didn't give a hoot for tradition. He became enamoured of a pussycat and went to sea in a beautiful pea green boat.

Owl: They do, Eeyore. Autumn is simply another name for fall.
Eeyore: Oh.
