Fierce Creatures (1997)
[Cub and Pip burst into Rollo's office, with Sydney close behind]
Pip Small Mammals: You didn't kill them!
Rollo Lee: What?
[Both women throw their arms around him]
Cub Felines: We checked, they're all alive!
Rollo Lee: Oh...!
[Before he can say another word, they're smothering his cheeks with kisses]
Sydney Lotterby: [grinning] You rascal!
[to Bugsy]
Sydney Lotterby: He was only kidding!
Adrian "Bugsy" Malone: [as if he's known it all along] Just figured that out, have you?
Rollo Lee: [still getting kissed] I say...

[about the zoo's new owner]
Rollo Lee: Starting with his father's radio stations in New Zealand, he has built up a global empire currently worth more than six billion dollars... and growing.
Adrian "Bugsy" Malone: How much does he want in the end?
Sydney Lotterby: Yeah.
Rollo Lee: What?
Adrian "Bugsy" Malone: How much bigger does he want to get?
Rollo Lee: Well, there aren't any limits. He wants growth.
Adrian "Bugsy" Malone: Presumably he's aware of Dr. E.F. Schumacher's concept of limited resources, or as Jean-Paul Sartre puts it...
Rollo Lee: [interrupting] Any *sensible* questions?

Adrian "Bugsy" Malone: Scared? Oh, don't worry about Terry; he wouldn't hurt a fly. Well, actually, he *would* hurt a fly, bein' a Mexican red-kneed tarantula - Brachypelma smithii - and therefore particularly partial to flies. The point is that Terry has a bite relatively harmless to human beings, and you reacted as though he were fierce - which he isn't.
Rollo Lee: [squirms away] Yes, I always had a bit of a thing about spiders, actually.
Adrian "Bugsy" Malone: So... if creatures are *thought* to be fierce, they are, ipso facto... *fierce!*

Cub Felines: We weren't playing tricks, Bugsy. We're trying to confront him with the reality.
Adrian "Bugsy" Malone: Presumably you realize...
Sydney Lotterby: Bugsy, shut up! He's not a cold-blooded murderer. We've given him the five sweetest, cuddliest, most lovable...
[From the woods, they hear a series of five gunshots]
